As the offroad series are starting to take over the headlines around the nation, some of the MX series are starting to wind down. There are a number of issues to be resolved in Las Vegas, NV this weekend and no bigger for Moose Racing than the 2018 AMSOIL Arenacross title. We’ve had quite a run with multiple championships over the past few years including Gavin Faith’s back-to-back titles over the last two seasons, but he is out with an injury and it’s up to others to pick up the slack. Reno, NV hosted the second-to-last round where Team Babbitt’s Kawasaki rider Jacob Hayes was able to claw back some points on the series leader. It’s all going to come down this weekend with Hayes trailing by only one point.
The AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series is getting ready to wind down in Vegas as well, but they first spent a spectacular weekend in Salt Lake City, UT where the weather was perfect for racing. The Cycle Trader Rock River Yamaha Team had a pair of riders make the main events. Dylan Merriam recovered from a bad start and moved his way back to 12th before the checkers fell in the 250 Class. Teammate Alex Ray transferred straight to the main event from his 450 heat race and was running mid-pack before his clutch gave out and he retired from the race.
On the offroad side of the scale, The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series Presented by Moose Racing held Round 2 of their series at the Harleywood Riding Area in Bristol, VA where the KR4 Arrive-N-Ride Husqvarna Team had some impressive results. Liam Draper won his first event of the season by placing 1st in the Pro 2 Class. Layne Michael also made a trip to the podium taking 3rd overall in Pro 3 and to nobody’s surprise Tayla Jones dominated the two-day ISDE format by winning the Women’s Class.
