Barcia Earns a Second Place Podium Finish in Houston

8 04 2014

TORRANCE, CA – April 8, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – This past Saturday, the Honda Red Riders took on round 14 of the 2014 AMA Supercross series at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX. It was a stellar night for Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia, who landed on the podium for the fourth time this season with an impressive second, while teammate Trey Canard finished in fourth. This weekend also played host to round seven of the Western Regional 250 SX class and Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne scored a fifth-place finish.

450 Class
Barcia looked impressive all day. He laid down the fourth fastest time in qualifying practice and finished third in his heat race after an intense five-way battle. In the main event, he launched his CRF450R off the line to a top-five start and quickly worked his way into second, which is where he stayed the remainder of the 20-lap race. Barcia now sits fifth in the championship standings.

“It’s awesome to be on the podium again. I should have been doing this all season, but better late than never I guess,” Barcia stated. “I want that win so bad though, so until I get that I won’t be completely satisfied. Practice went good and the heat race was intense; we were all so close. I got a good start in the main event and just rode in second basically the entire time. I’m looking forward to going to Seattle. I won there last year so maybe I’ll have the same luck this year.”

In only his second race back, Canard showed increasing speed all night. Once again, he transferred directly into the main event with a fourth in his heat race. He then got away to a good start in the main, and battled challenges to finish fourth.

“It was an all-around better night for sure. I felt much better in timed qualifying and the jitters were definitely gone,” said Canard. “My starts could have been a little better but all in all I’m really happy with a fourth place. It is a big step up from last week considering I got two positions on the last lap in St. Louis from guys being on the ground. It was a tough track for sure. Hopefully next week the track is good and I can be up there battling with these guys.”

Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac finished a respectable ninth place. After qualifying seventh quickest in qualifying practice, Tomac transferred into the main event via a second-place finish in the semi-qualifying race. Early in the main event, Tomac worked his way up to fifth before going down on lap 10. He remounted to finish ninth.

“This day was pretty much like the whole season has been going for me. In practice we were consistently top three or four in every session, so I felt pretty comfortable,” explained Tomac. “The heat races have been a bit of a struggle. I’ve been struggling myself and we’ve struggled with the bike a bit. It was no different here. We did make a change for the semi and I rode really well there and almost won it but ended up second, so that put us in a fairly good spot for the main. In the main event, I got an okay start and worked up to fifth before casing a jump pretty hard and going down in the next turn.”

250SX-Podium-Houston

250 Class
After a seven-week hiatus the Western Regional 250 Supercross class resumed the battle this weekend for round seven of the series and Muscle Milk-supported GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne put together a solid fifth-place finish. After missing two rounds earlier in the season due to injury, Osborne now sits eighth overall in the championship standings.

“Tonight offered a lot of positives, especially being my first race back from injury,” Osborne said. “To finish top five, when you look at it, is pretty decent. Even so, I don’t feel like that finish really shows how I am able to ride. It seems like I deserved to be up front, but I struggled just enough in the whoops to kill my chances.”

34_S_14_23_10867

It was an impressive night for the Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ Honda team who had all four of their riders finish in the top 10. Malcolm Stewart launched his CRF250R off the line to a notable start in the main event, putting together a consistent 15-lap race to finish third and earn a podium spot. Teammate and championship contender Cole Seely finished right behind him in fourth, with Shane McElrath in seventh and Jessy Nelson rounding out the top 10.

Temecula’s South Coast Winery Hosts Season Celebration Last Sunday

MORGANTOWN, WV – August 29, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Just one day after the on-track conclusion of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, took place at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports, a division of the NBC Sports Group, honored and recognized the moments and individuals that helped make the 2013 season memorable with its annual Season Celebration this past Sunday.

Yoshimura R&D’s Eli Tomac Captures the 250 Championship and the Overall at the Inaugural Utah National

19 08 2013

TOOELE, UT -August 19, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Yoshimura riders made their way to the first ever pro national held at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. Riders were met with exceptionally dusty and windy conditions for the Utah round, but that didn’t stop Eli Tomac from taking back to back moto wins and clinching the 250 Championship title. Trey Canard also had a great weekend, drastically improving over last week’s hijinks, with a podium and 3rd overall.

Yoshimura Tomac Championship

Yoshimura-backed GEICO Honda rider Tomac has shown race fans all season that he deserves to take home the 250 championship. And on Saturday, he did just that – clinching the title a round early. As for the rest of the GEICO squad, Justin Bogle put in a good ride with a holeshot in moto 2, and finished a solid 5th overall. Zach Osborne finished in the top 10 on Saturday, but wasn’t near his speed seen earlier in the year. Osborne earned himself a 9th for the day. Wil Hahn wasn’t able to grab his typical back to back holeshots and had to settle with an 11th overall at the Utah round. Tomac’s GEICO teammates sit 5th (Osborne), 6th (Bogle), and 15th (Hahn) in the Championship standings.

Yoshimura Trey Canard Utah National

Yoshimura-backed Muscle Milk Honda rider Trey Canard retaliated in Utah after a not-so-stellar race last weekend. Canard stepped up to the plate and delivered a double spoonful of top 3 finishes. He stayed out of trouble out front; which was a good plan, considering the carnage happening behind him. Trey Canard took a 3rd in moto 1, and a 3rd in moto 2, for 3rd overall. His performance in Utah puts him 4th in the Championship points headed into Lake Elsinore next weekend. In a scuffle with Malcom Stewart, Barcia rode wide into a left hander off the course and into the track markers, where he was close lined by a guide wire! Barcia remounted, and battled all the way back to 11th before he took the checkers. In moto 2, Barcia stayed out of trouble, and finished directly behind teammate Trey Canard. The Muscle Milk Honda duo of Barcia and Canard are currently 3rd and 4th in the Championship points, respectively.

Yoshimura Brock Tickle Utah National

Yoshimura-powered RCH Suzuki rider Broc Tickle was slightly off pace, from his previous finishes in the 2013 outdoor season. He managed 14-32 for 19th overall. Despite a lackluster finish in Utah, Tickle still holds 8th place in the Championship standings heading into the final round.

Yoshimura James Stewart Utah National

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart suffered a neck injury last week, which haunted him this weekend at Utah. He ran inside the top 5 for quite some time, before he pulled off the track, which resulted in a DNF. Stewart did not line up for moto 2. He is still 5th in the Championship points as the series heads to Lake Elsinore.

Next weekend, Yoshimura riders head to Lake Elsinore, California for Round 12 and the final race of the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

Ryan Villopoto, Eli Tomac Clinch 2013 Championships at the Inaugural Built Ford Tough Utah National

18 08 2013

Title Triumphs Result in Historic Day at Miller Motorsports Park

TOOELE, UT – August 18, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Over 21,000 fans were on hand to witness a historic day at Miller Motorsports Park for Saturday’s Built Ford Tough Utah National, where two champions were crowned at the inaugural event in Tooele, Utah. By virtue of a 1-1 moto sweep, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto captured his second career 450 Class Championship, while GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac clinched his first ever 250 Class title at Round 11 of the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

Villopoto began the day with his third consecutive Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 of the 450 Class, immediately putting a gap on the rest of the field. Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Justin Brayton jumped into the second place position early on, with Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey and Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart close in tow. Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard made his way into third, where he maintained a comfortable position throughout the first moto.

Villopoto and Dungey finished first and second respectively in Moto 1, thus extending the championship chase into Moto 2.

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Ryan Sipes captured the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 2 but it was Villopoto who commanded the early lead. Dungey stuck close behind as the 2012 450 Class Champion attempted to keep his title hopes alive at the penultimate round. However, Villopoto set a pace that couldn’t be matched, finishing eleven seconds ahead of Dungey in Moto 2.

Canard put forth a strong performance at the inaugural event, claiming third overall with a pair of third place finishes.

Villopoto’s nearly flawless performance at the Utah National was enough to clinch the 2013 championship and become only the eleventh rider in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross to win more than a single 450 Class Championship. Furthermore, Villopoto’s second title carries the Washington native to a total of five Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships across the 250 and 450 Classes.

“It is gnarly to be at this level of racing but you just take it year by year and race by race. There’s really no time to sit down and look at it as how many races do we need to win,” Villopoto commented regarding his career number of championships. “The thing that keeps us going as racers is definitely winning. Yeah, winning is fun but during the week it’s tough.”

In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Martin Davalos grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 but the GEICO Honda teammates of Zach Osborne, Justin Bogle and Wil Hahn surrounded the leader right away. Osborne briefly took over the lead before 250 Class points leader Eli Tomac made his move to the front.

Rookie Adam Cianciarulo inserted his Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki into the brigade of Hondas early on where he maintained the second place position for a majority of the race. Reigning 250 Class Champion Blake Baggett began Moto 1 outside the top ten but the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider caught and eventually passed his teammate for the second place position. Cianciarulo held on to capture a career best finish of third place in Moto 1, followed by Tomac’s closest title challenger, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen.

Heading into Moto 2, the 250 Class Championship was still up for grabs as Tomac and Roczen went head-to-head for valuable points. GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot and the early lead until Roczen took it over on Lap 7. Tomac came from behind to apply pressure on Roczen before the points leader eventually took over the lead position.

Although Tomac had the upper hand on Roczen in Moto 2, the championship wasn’t completely determined until Baggett entered the second place battle with Roczen late in the race. Baggett’s last-lap pass on Roczen was enough to give Tomac the edge he needed to secure the 250 Class Championship with a 1-1 sweep at the penultimate round.

“I didn’t really know I had the championship wrapped up, I was just going with the flow,” Tomac said after Moto 2. “I didn’t really think it was going to happen today, I am sort of in shock right now. I think it will sink in more after I get some rest, right now I’m pretty tired and just out of energy.”

Baggett captured second overall with a consistent 2-2 moto score, while Roczen came in third with 4-3 finishes.

Yoshimura R&D’s James Stewart Captures the 450 Overall Win

29 07 2013

Eli Tomac Continues his 250 Winning Streak at Millville

MILLVILLE, MN – July 29, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Yoshimura riders braved the unseasonably chilly 55 degrees on race day at Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, Minnesota.  The battles at round 9 of the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross Championship heated up, however, with Yoshimura riders James Stewart and Eli Tomac winning the 450 and 250 classes, respectively.

Millville National Yoshimura James Stewart

The story of the day was the stunning performance from Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart. He charged to a first Moto win after an intense battle with Yoshimura R&D-backed Muscle Milk Honda rider Trey Canard. Stewart powered out of the gate with a top five start, which put him in striking distance for the lead. After grabbing third from Ryan Dungey, Stewart worked his way through the duo of Trey Canard and Justin Barcia using an ultra-fast ‘Bubba-esque’ line through the infamous Millville sand whoops. In the second moto Stewart and his Yoshimura-powered machine, rocketed off the line with a commanding holeshot. Stewart led the opening segment of the race before battling it out with Ryan Dungey, exchanging the lead several times. The closing laps showed a glimpse of the ‘Bubba’ days of old – with Stewart going big off the downhills during his battle with Canard. Stewart finished the moto in third, taking the overall victory.

Millville National Yoshimura Eli Tomac

Yoshimura-backed GEICO Honda rider Eli Tomac continued his win streak, with back-to-back moto wins. With a 10th place start in moto one, Tomac carved through the pack, edging-out Millville local Jeremy Martin en route to his first moto victory. In moto two, Eli had to hunt down several riders and ultimately pass Ken Roczen for the lead. His first place finish in moto two, makes four consecutive moto victories for the unstoppable Tomac. After nine rounds in the history books for 2013, Eli Tomac sits as the current points leader with a comfortable gap over second place.

Millville National Yoshimura Trey Canard

Yoshimura-backed Muscle Milk Honda rider Trey Canard had a great weekend in Minnesota. He fought hard in moto one with Yoshimura Suzuki rider James Stewart as the two traded the lead several times. Canard found another gear on the last lap and nearly caught Stewart with a photo finish.  In moto two, Canard stealthily moved up from fourth to challenge Stewart for second. They battled for the entire moto and Canard second. With a 2-2 for the day, Canard posted a season-best second place overall finish. Teammate Justin Barcia was in the hunt for most of the day — in moto one he grabbed the holeshot and ran inside the top three with Canard and Stewart. In moto two, a crash took Barcia out of the hunt. He remounted and finished the race in fifth; earning fourth overall for the day. After the Minnesota round, Justin Barcia and Trey Canard sit third and fifth in the Championship points, respectively.

Millville National Yoshimura RCH Broc Tickle

Yoshimura-backed RCH Suzuki rider Broc Tickle rode to a drama-free and ultra-consistent 10th place overall finish at the Minnesota pro national. He grabbed 8th in moto one, and rode to 10th in moto two. After Millville, Tickle holds on to 9th in the Championship points.

Millville National Yoshimura Wil Hahn

As for the rest of the Yoshimura-backed GEICO Honda pack, Wil Hahn once again dominated the starts scoring back-to-back holeshots. In moto one, he opened a gap on Millville native Jeremy Martin, and lead the opening portion of the race. Hahn has the speed, and improves his points position every round, but is still working on endurance, as he is still recovering from his supercross injury.

Yoshimura riders head to New York for Round 10 of the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross Championship, at Unadilla.

James Stewart Captures First Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Victory of 2013 at Red Bull Spring Creek National

28 07 2013

Eli Tomac Inherits 250 Class Points Lead With 1-1 Sweep

MILLVILLE, MN – July 27, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, made its lone visit to Minnesota on Saturday for the ninth round of the season from Millville’s Spring Creek MX Park. With temperatures cooler than usual in the Midwest, the Red Bull Spring Creek National produced plenty of exciting race action for the 31st annual event.

After a five-year winning streak at Spring Creek, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey missed the center of the podium on Saturday. However, a Moto 2 win in the 450 Class gave Dungey’s hometown fans a reason to cheer for the Minnesota native. In the end, it was Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart who captured the overall win at the Red Bull Spring Creek National, his first of the 2013 season.

As the gate dropped for Moto 1 of the 450 Class, Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot down the championship’s longest start straight, where he battled with his teammate Trey Canard for the early lead. Red Bull KTM’s Dungey began the moto with the lead pack but a couple mistakes in the early moments caused the reigning champion to drop back as far as 11th place in the first moto.

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart jumped in behind Canard and Barcia off the start, where he quickly took over the lead position from the Honda-backed duo. Barcia and Canard flip-flopped for second place, but Canard eventually made the pass on his teammate for second. Canard closed the gap on Stewart’s lead towards the end, but it wasn’t enough to keep the 2008 450 Class Champion from securing the Moto 1 win. Canard maintained the second-place position, while Barcia and Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Josh Grant finished third and fourth, respectively.

Meanwhile, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto was forced to work his way through the pack after a crash on the opening lap that left the points leader in 28th position. Villopoto ultimately made his way up to sixth place, where he finished just ahead of Dungey in Moto 1.

Following his Moto 1 win, Stewart carried considerable momentum into the second moto as he grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot and led Dungey early on. The two former 450 Class Champions went head-to-head for the lead spot, but it was ultimately Dungey who settled into the front position.

The real battle in Moto 2 came in the runner-up position between Canard and Stewart as the outcome would likely determine the 450 Class overall winner. After a back and forth battle to the end, Canard was able to best Stewart for second place in Moto 2. But Stewart’s 1-3 moto score was enough to top Canard’s 2-2 finishes en route to his first overall victory of the season.

“Things just came together today but it was probably the hardest two motos I’ve ridden since last year,” James Stewart said. “We’re just building for next year so any little bit helps. I want to finish this thing [season] and get a couple more wins to carry the momentum into next season.”

Dungey maintained the lead through the end of Moto 2, finishing 5-1 to salvage third place overall for the day.

Villopoto finished fifth overall with a moto score of 4-6 for the day, despite a valiant comeback effort in both motos. Round 9 marks the first time this season that Villopoto hasn’t finished atop the overall podium, but the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider maintains the 450 Class points lead heading into the tenth round.

GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 of the 250 Class, where he led the opening lap. Millville native Jeremy Martin got off to a second place start where he settled in behind Hahn early on. GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle and Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen went back and forth behind MYPLASH/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Martin, where a three-way battle ensued. Roczen eventually passed Bogle, and then Martin, for the second place position, but Roczen experienced a crash that forced the Red Bull KTM rider to pull off the first moto.

Martin moved past Hahn to take over the lead in front of his hometown friends and family but a hard-charging Eli Tomac quickly caught up to Martin from behind. Tomac took over the lead and carried it through the finish, while Martin claimed a career-best finish of second place.

Hahn came out charging in Moto 2 of the 250 Class, grabbing his second straight Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot of the day. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett and Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen pushed to the front early on, where the duo took turns leading the race. However, Tomac came from behind to interject himself into the lead battle about halfway through Moto 2.

Tomac eventually moved past Roczen for the lead, where he maintained his position to capture his second moto win of the day and fourth consecutive moto win this season. Roczen finished second in Moto 2, posting a moto score of 35-2 to salvage ninth overall for the day.

Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin proved that consistency pays off as he captured a pair of fourth place finishes to capture second overall for the day. Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson captured a career best third overall with 3-5 finishes for the day Hometown favorite Jeremy Martin put in an impressive ride to finish fourth overall for the day with a 2-7 moto score.

Tomac’s 1-1 sweep at Spring Creek was enough to claim the 250 Class points lead atop Roczen, who now sits 27 points behind in second.

Round 10 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads to New Berlin, NY for the Built Ford Tough Unadilla National on Saturday, August 10.
