FARMINGDALE, NJ – Bel-Ray Company, Inc. – As the summer draws to a close and racing winds down Bel-Ray racers are still in action. Our professional teams and racers will compete this weekend in Italy, Germany, and the United States.
The Tech3 Racing team will compete this week in Misano, Italy for the San Marino GP. Following an excellent finish at the Indianapolis Grand Prix this past weekend, Bradley Smith is looking for a podium finish. His 4th place finish in Indy upped his season points total to 92 making him 6th place in the series standings. With 6 races remaining Smith is just 4 points away from 3rd place in his rookie Moto2 season. Teammate Mike DiMeglio has been struggling all season long and is looking for a breakout ride this weekend as the season winds to a close. DiMeglio is 28th in the series points standings.
The World Motocross Championship Series returns to action in Gaildorf, Germany after a 2 week break. TM Factory racer Tanel Leok used the break to recover from a difficult crash at the previous round in Great Britain.

Despite the DNF, Leok is still 11th overall in the season points standings with only 2 rounds remaining.
