Race Seasons Heating Up All Over the Nation
The Moose Racing semi attended a new venue over the weekend, but with a series we are very familiar with. The Florida Trail Riders held a race event at the infamous Gatorback Cycle Park in Gainesville, FL. We were set up on vendor’s row and saw a nice flow of race fans stop by to check out our product lines, grab some stickers and a free catalog. On Saturday evening we hosted a hospitality dinner for all in attendance to enjoy which went over very well with families stopping back to thank us all weekend.
The Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA played host to the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series for the second weekend in a row. It proved to be a hot and cold night for JGR Yamaha Racing’s Phil Nicoletti. Phil won the LCQ on his factory YZ450F, but when the main event rolled around a few mistakes kept him out of the top 10 where he wanted to be and he ended up finishing 17th overall.
The AMSOIL Arenacross Series headed to Kansas City, MO where Babbitt’s Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Matt Goerke took the overall win! Matt’s team had his bike set up great for the unusual track conditions. The win puts Goerke one point behind teammate Jacob Hayes who is the current Championship point’s leader.
Rockstar Energy Factory Husqvarna Racing’s Andrew Delong showed everybody why he is the reigning National Enduro Champion by winning Round 2 of that series in wet and cold South Carolina. The “Sandlapper” as it is known is a rough and demanding course in good conditions, but the cold weather made it especially tough for the riders and teams. Rounding out the top 10 for Moose Racing were Rockstar Energy Factory Husqvarna’s Josh Strang in 6th and Factory Beta Racing’s Cory Buttrick in 7th.
