Catanzaro made the main easily despite fighting to keep the seat on his bike during his heat race. The front tab that connects the seat to the gas tank became damaged after a crash during practice.
He survived the challenging whoop section that caused many top riders to go buck wild as if they were riding a mechanical bull instead of a dirt bike. But he found them not so threatening.
“Dallas was a good track. The whoops were huge which I liked.”
While a temporary fix to the seat tab did not sustain in the main, which affected Catanzaro’s capability to attack the track, the young rider was still positive about the night.
“My qualifying times were fast and my heat race was good, so I was pretty happy with how I rode.”
18th place is not where Catanzaro expected or wanted to finish, but with one round left in the AMA Supercross Lites Class East, the MXTrader.net rider, number 330 still has his sights on a top ten finish in St. Louis this Saturday night.
“I know I have the speed, I just need to put it together in the main for 15 laps.”
As we near the completion of the AMA Supercross Lites East rounds, Catanzaro is preparing to race the outdoor nationals, but said he needs the help and support to stay competitive and make it to all the rounds.
“I’m hoping someone will see my talent and step up to get me to the races, because I know I can do awesome outdoors."
