Mt. Morris, PA - The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships visited the famous and historic High Point raceway and team riders Jason “JT$” Thomas and Kyle “Lanky” Keylon both did the DNA Energy Drink/BTO Sports.com/BBMX team proud. Keylon suffered a hard crash in the first moto and was sent to the hospital via ambulance. The end result was a badly bruised Colon, which was caused by landing on his handlebar. His tough year continues but we think that all this hitting the ground will just make him stronger. But we’re glad it’s him testing that theory and not us. Keylon is home now and doing ok, just pretty dang sore in the lower region...
Thomas got pretty much the worst start ever in the first moto but charged hard and the in-shape JT$ caught some fading riders at the end of the moto for seventeenth. The second moto was historic for being live on NBC network TV for the first time and our guy Thomas almost pulled the holeshot! It was a great start for Thomas as he ran fourth, then fifth, then sixth, then seventh and, well, you get the idea. The slick track posed some problems for Thomas as he eventually finished another seventeenth. It was something to build on for the next race in Colorado in two weeks, we think Keylon will be back by then as well.
