For Immediate Release

Rolling in the Maritimes

Round 7 of the outdoor mx portion of the Rockstar Triple Crown series took place at one of the staples on the circuit, Riverglade MX located in Moncton NB.

The track crew did a great job prepping the facility, and mother nature did her part and a huge crowd was on hand to witness some great racing in both classes.

Qualifying went well with all 3 guys posting lap times in the top 10.  The stage was set for a great day.

Moto 1 saw Pettis jump to the lead in the first few corners and never look back as he once again led wire to wire for the win.  Cannella led the battle that had himself, Maffenbeier, Wright and his teammate Halstead fighting for 4th place.  The battle raged for 20 min and only slightly settled in the last few laps.   In the end Cannella would come home 6th with Halstead right behind him.

Moto 2 once again saw Pettis up front but an aggressive bump and run left him playing catch up and nursing a sore hand.  As he made his way back to the front the leaders were checking out.  He would be smart thinking of the Championship and settle for 5th in the moto, and 3rd overall on the day.   Cannella and Halstead would start just inside the top 10.  Cannella would move up for 6th in the moto giving him 6-6 for 6th overall!   Halstead would finish 9th going 7-9 for 8th overall.

A solid day with 6 solid moto’s from all of our riders would see us keeping the red plate with 2 rounds to go!
