AG Motorsports Dallas Race Report
Presented by University of Northwestern Ohio
Arlington, TX – With the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series heading east, it was time for new stars to shine as the 250 SX Eastern Region kicked off in the Lone Star State at Cowboy Stadium. Under the lights of the $1 billion stadium and with a live broadcast, excitement filled the chilly air and everyone was making their predictions for who was going to come out on top. But on this night, AG Motorsports rider #50 Kyle Peters was going to be the dark horse that surprised many.
With a solid performance in Heat 1, Kyle finished 6th and was just warming up for the Main Event.
When the gates dropped for the Main, Kyle grabbed a handful of throttle on his Dragon Racing Fuels powered Honda and took the Holeshot Award before finally giving up the top position to Wilson by the end of lap one. With Wharton, Thompson, and Hahn within striking distance, Kyle stayed in the battle and fought hard before Wharton made his move and took the position bringing Thompson along with him. When Thompson went down, Kyle picked up the 3rd position again and held it for most of the race until Hahn made his move on lap 12 to take the final podium spot. Kyle stayed in the hunt all the way to the checkered and finished 4th.
“Had an awesome weekend and am pumped for the way the season started” stated Peters. “Now, I just have to keep it going… I’m really looking forward to Atlanta.”
“Today went very well for us," said Al Albiker, Team Manager. “We could not have scripted it much better. We are very fortunate to have Kyle on our team. He is everything you could ask for in a rider. He works hard, he listens, and he wants it. I think we work well together and of course our goal is to improve week to week. We are building something here and are working day and night to give Kyle everything he needs.”
