fans packed into the Georgia Dome for the second weekend in a row! This weekends race was all ‘retro-throwback’
themed amongst riders and bikes decked out with a taste of the Old-School moto look.
Spending majority of his time on the ground during the West coast series of AMA Supercross, Josh Grant
has turned his season around drastically while grabbing three top 10’s since the series has moved over to East coast. With a dominating 6th place this weekend and constantly building momentum, Daytona’s outdoor style track might be another breakout ride for the #33
who is consider by many as a very strong rider outdoors.
Continuing to improve each weekend young gun, Heath Harrison
is so close to making a main event in the 450 class, he can taste it! Coming off his Arenacross Tour title, Harrison came into the Supercross series a bit late into the game. However Harrison has surprised a lot of people with his lap times in the VERY competitive 450 class. If Harrison
can get a decent start in a LCQ, he will be fighting for series points in a 450 main live on Fox Sports 1 in no time. Benefiting from an AMA ruling in his semi, Kyle Partridge transferred directly to the main out of his semi.
Aside from Factory riders, Partridge
has probably been one of the more frequent faces in the ultra competitive 450 main this season. The only thing that held back Partridge was the battle right out of the gate. Throughout the race Kyle laid down some serious work holding it together and banging bars. At the end and getting mixed up in the chaos Kyle finished his Rocky Mountain ATV/MC ride with a 22nd.
Running a gator print graphic kit for retro weekend, the Veteran Nick Wey
soldiered his way into the main event with a 4th in his LCQ. Once in the main, Nick made the most of his opportunity battling off the stacked field of riders and slid into a 16th place finish.
Pulling what we think is a solid 16th, Justin Starling
will be the first to admit he wants more out of himself. But Starling continued his consistency in the usually inconsistent 250 class. While starts in the main have been hurting him, solid qualifying efforts have put Starlng in the mix every weekend. Don't be surprised if we see a top 10 out of the #77 before we head back west!
A tight technical single lane track that made fast laps really hard to come by in qualifying caused HRT Racing's Conner Elliott
to miss his first night show of the year. Also missing the night show was Elliott's teammate, Vicki Golden
. Now 0 for 3, Golden is still looking for that first top 40 qualifying time and though she just missed the cut in Atlanta, Golden looked more comfortable than she had the prior two weeks.
Having a pretty ‘uneventful’ night would be a bummer for most top riders, but for Kyle Cunningham
, it was just what the veteran needed after a pretty tough start to his season. After a DNF and a DNQ in his first two mains, Cunningham ran a solid pace to a 15th place finish.
Finishing just outside the top 10 in 11th, Kyle Peters
was fast all day. Peters has proven in the past that if you give him a start, he can hang with the big guns. With speed not being a problem, can Peters put his Crossland Racing Honda in the top 5 when the series heads to Daytona for the next round of the 250 east series? Check out the track map
