For Immediate Release

Richmond, ON (June 15, 2019)

Wet cold and muddy were the words of the day this past weekend.   The rain started the night before and would be relentless all the way thru till the rigs rolled out after racing

The day started off well with all 3 guys posting times in the top 10.  The decision to skip the second qualifier and save equipment and energy payed off in the end. 

Luke would rocket off the line and collect the Royal Distributing Holeshot.   As he stayed clean Marco would do the opposite as he hit the ground twice on the opening lap.  Hayden would hold pace just in inside the opening laps.  

The lead would change hands a few times and as it settled it was Dylan Wright who would take the checkers ahead of Renzland.  Marco would have an incredible ride showing his grit as he was as far back as 33rd and moved his way all the way to 7th.  Hayden would have one small tip over that would cost him valuable spots at the end as he finished 13th.  

The decision was made that 2nd motos would be cancelled and that moto 1 would serve as your overall for the day.  

A protest was lodged by another team as several riders in the top 10 had used the grass into turn 1 to their advantage.   The ruling has come down and most notably Dylan Wright and Jess Pettis were among the riders penalized 5 positions 

With the ruling that gives Luke the overall for the day, Marco will move up to 6th and Hayden 12th.  

The incredible battle for top spot in the 250 class is extremely tight as we head for the 5 rounds on the east beginning with Gopher Dunes in 3 weeks!
