AMA: Rockstar, Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co. Motostrano Race Report


Rockstar, Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co. Motostrano Race Report

Over 900 riders competed against each other at the Stateline Challenge in Primm, NV and we gave them a run for their money! We definitely had an exciting (if hazardous!) weekend on the hard-to-pass track.

We managed to wrangle Tyler Evans, a Motocross hero, into riding with us this weekend and he tore it up! Keeping the pressure on the leaders and finishing fifth in his qualifying race and 15th overall in the 450 class. He also did great in the Open class, finishing 14th (not bad for a newbie!).

Carey Hart raced hard in the first race of the season finishing 24th in the 450 class. He took a tough spill on Sunday in the Open qualifier, snapping his wrist and tearing himself up pretty badly, ending his weekend. He's hoping to get back on the track in time for the season opener.

Despite having some bad luck, Doni Wanat came back and finished 22nd on Saturday. He started out great on Sunday finishing 4th in his qualifier and although getting up close and personal with the pavement, he still finished the Open Pro 29th . He's looking good this year and we know we'll see some great results from him.

Travis went down in the qualifiers for the 450 class on Saturday and got bruised up pretty badly, but by the time the Open pro came around on Sunday he was good to go finishing 2nd in his qualifier getting a 2nd row start for the main and snagging a 10th place finish! He's definitely going to be challenging for podium positions this season.

The guys looked fast and ready out there and we're looking forward to a great season!

Scott Sheak will unfortunately not be joining us for the remainder of the season and we wish him the best of luck.
