Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX - Day Two

Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX - Day Two

Advertisement | Advertise with Us

Yesterday was day one of the two-day Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross at Daytona International Speedway. To say that the amateur racers aren’t used to a track like Daytona is obvious, but less obvious and still just as true is that the Daytona track isn’t used to hosting nearly 1000 riders a day. The weather couldn’t be more beautiful over the two days of racing, and now that the heat races are over, today’s the day when the wins really matter. So, once again, sit back, relax and keep checking back throughout the day to keep up with the happenings from Daytona.

Bailey Plouffe (597) snatched the holeshot to start the Vet B/C 35+ main event. He led for a while before ending up sixth.
undefined
Daxton Bennick won his heat and the main event in the 50cc (4-6) AMA Stock class.

undefined
Local boy Jordan Renfro snatched sixth in the 50cc (4-6) AMA Stock class.
undefined
These guys were marveling at the abilities of the tiniest competitors on the track in the 50cc (4-6) class. They were impressed and said they were having a lot of fun helping out.

undefined
Joseph Kundrot (12) came from behind to chase down Wilfran De Paz for the win late in the 450 C (22+) main. When De Paz left the track, his arm pump appeared to be so bad that he could hardly turn the throttle to get him back to the pits.

undefined
It’s still really cool to hear 125cc two-strokes at full-tilt. Too bad you can’t hear Alexander Frye here.

undefined

 

undefined
RJ Hampshire (21) led most of the 450 A/Pro Sport main, but lost the lead late in the race to Jace Owen. Amazingly, he made the move back past Owen in the closing stages to seal the title. Anyone who has raced knows just how hard that is and what an amazing feat it truly is.

undefined
Bryson Taylor scored a solid third in 450 B, and second in College (17-24).

undefined
Earl May (82) finished third in 45+ A.

undefined

undefined
Kaitlyn Morrow won the Women’s class.

undefined
David Izer (left) and Ricky Carmichael (right) have 15 AMA National Championships between the two of them.

undefined
Ramyller Alves took the win in Supermini (12-16).

undefined
Dawson Horne suffered a DNF in Supermini (12-16). It can be a long walk back at Daytona.

undefined
Jordan Bailey (133) grabbed the Supermini (12-16) holeshot and ended up fourth.

undefined
Jacob Parsons gets fired up for his 65cc (10-11) main event by punching his dad’s hands. Parsons had a pretty big crash over one of Daytona’s doubles in the main, but still finished.

undefined
Ty Masterpool came from the tail end of the top five to win the 65cc (10-11) class going away.

undefined
Motocross (or in this case, supercross) really is a family sport.

undefined
Chad Murphy dominated his heat race on Sunday and the main event early on Monday to take the 30+ B/C title.

undefined
John Grewe grabbed the holeshot and led every lap of the 45+ A class main event.

undefined
Grewe had it a bit easier than he should have in 45+ A because Barry Carsten (31) was taken out in the third turn. He still came through from last to second.

undefined
Barry Carsten is a bad dude.

Monster Truck. Get it?

undefined
Alexander Frye absolutely dominated the 125cc Schoolboy (12-16) class, and he even earned an extra $100 for his holeshot at the start of the main event from Motorcycle Superstore.

undefined
Monster Girls! Finally!

undefined
Phone-tographers stand behind the rider’s area.

undefined

undefined
Thomas Covington finished third in the 450 A/Pro Sport class on his 250F. At one point, he ran as high as second, but went down at about the halfway point.

undefined
Thomas Covington awaits the 250 and 450 A main events. He’s racing both classes on the same Monster Energy KX250F.

undefined
Clean and prepped: Wilfredo Guzman’s bike looks factory as he awaits the College (17-24) main event.

undefined

undefined
We heard a rumor that the pit setup that Enzo Lopes is running was considered by the Factory Red Bull KTM squad, but they couldn’t fit it into their budget.

undefined
Just in case you were thinking about going through the gears in the Daytona pits...

undefined

undefined

undefined
This is what forty-nine heats look like. This isn’t even counting the LCQs or main events.
