Dragon Racing Fuels Indianapolis Race ReportTuesday, March 20, 2012 | 1:35 PM
Indianapolis, IN – With a couple of solid races under his belt, Dragon Racing Fuels/AG Motorsports KTM rider Justin Starling was looking to improve upon his Daytona results with a solid ride in Indianapolis. However, the injury bug struck again for the team and Starling went down hard half-way through the final practice session and injured his knee. Starling could not return to the track after qualifying for the night show. More details will be available this week.
The team’s attention was now solely focused on rookie David Buller. Having qualified for his first Monster Energy AMA Supercross, Buller had his work cut out for him. When the gate dropped in Heat 2, Buller got a great start and held his line before giving it up as the pack pushed him outside after the first turn and then lost his momentum. Having to battle from the back, 6 laps was not enough time to work his way back towards the front and into the top 9. In the LCQ, Buller had a bad start and never recovered, sending him to the stands for the Main Event.
This week at the Spring Classic at Mill Creek in Alabama, Dragon Racing Fuels/AG Motorsports/Cernics KTM National Amateur Team had a solid week with Colton Ford and Keith Tucker.
Keith Tucker took his Dragon Racing Fuels/AG Motorsports powered KTM to the podium in the Super Mini 2 class going (3)(3)(3) for 2nd overall. In the Open Amateur 2 Stroke class, Tucker went (6)(5)(2) giving him 4th overall.
Colton Ford had a consistent week aboard his Dragon Racing Fuels/AG Motorsports powered KTM. In the Schoolboy 2 class, Colton went (6)(5)(5) for a 4th overall and in the 250 B Mod class went (6)(5) for 5th overall.
