For Immediate Release

Richmond, ON (April 29, 2019)

Round 3 of the AX portion of the Rockstar Triple Crown kicked off in Sarnia ON, last year’s best attended AX event.   The crowd came out again to support nearly filling every seat!  

Great dirt and a unique layout provided the riders with fast laps just under 19 seconds, so times were extremely close after practice.   As the qualifiers wound down it was clear that Luke Renzland was on a mission, setting the top time ½ second faster than anyone.  The top 8 were all within 1 second so starts were going to be key.    Headed to the racing Luke sat P1 and Marco was P7.

Both riders ended up seeding into heat 2, where Luke and current points leader Dylan Wright would battle for the win.   Luke made a pass stick with a couple laps to go taking the win.  Marco would finish 3rd going straight to the main with a decent gate pick.

The main event didn’t disappoint in the racing department as it was fast and furious!  In anticipation of the gate drop a few riders flinched and among them Tyler Medaglia and Renzland would get caught in the gate and have to play catch up once again. 

Marco would be too hesitant on the first couple laps and found himself slip back to 6th.   Luke would make some quick passes and begin his hunt for a podium running 4th.   Dylan Wright made the move to the lead and clean track and begin to pull away from the battle for second.   KTM’s Tanner Ward who joined the series this week ran 2nd with Renzland all over him for every lap of the main.   Renzland unable to find a place to make a clean pass would settle for another trip to the box in 3rd.  Marco would find a way around 1 rider and bring home 5th.

As the points sit now Dylan Wright holds an 11-point lead heading to the last round but as the series has shown so far with so many top guys that anything can happen.  Luke sits second with Marco holding down the final spot on the podium in the race for the championship in 3rd.

This coming weekend in Barrie marks the final AX of the year and promises to bring fireworks!
