San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium marked round seven of the Supercross Series. In timed practice Cole Seely led the way for the Fun Center Suzuki Team placing 11th, Michael Lapaglia was 26th and Brady Sheren 33rd.
Seely and Lapaglia were in heat race one. They both came out of the start in the top ten and quickly moved into fourth and fifth. Lapaglia battled the six lap race with Reardon eventually finishing 6th, Seely 4th.
Sheren lined up for heat two and got a mid pack start. By the end of the race he had moved up to 15th. In the LCQ Sheren was determined to make his second main of the season. When the gate dropped he rounded the first turn in second. A few turns later before the triple he passed for the lead, unfortunately it was shot lived. As he entered the whoop section he accidently hit the shifter causing the bike to hit neutral by the time he got going again he was in fifth where he eventually finished. “I am disappointed I missed another main event, however I am happy with the progress I have made this season. My wrist continues to get stronger each week and I am looking forward to Seattle already,” said Sheren after the LCQ.
In the main event Seely and Lapaglia both locked handle bars with another rider down the start straight. Seely came around the first lap in 16th and by the end of the race he worked up to 10th. “I am really happy with my progress,” stated Seely. “I am getting better each weekend and that is my goal.” Lapaglia had a better start and was in ninth at the end of lap one. He went on to finish 16th. “I am not happy with my result in the main and I am going to use this break to prove to everyone I am capable of being a top ten rider,” said Lapaglia.
The West Coast Lites Series now takes a long break before the next event on April 18th in Seattle Washington.
