AMA: Rockstar/H&H/Motostrano Race Report
Round one in the AMA Supermoto Championship took place this last weekend
at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis, MO and announced that
the new Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team is going to present a definite
challenge for the podium positions this year!
Racing in the Unlimited class, Travis Marks, #64 and Doni Wanat #89 gave
the leaders more than a little competition on their KTMs. Marks, who joined
the team when Rockstar/Hart & Huntington and Team JSTracing merged
during the off season, finished a strong 6th despite taking a spill in the dirt
section and having a small collision with the French Husqavarna rider
Belleraphone. Wanat’s getting faster every time he comes out and pushed the
#8 position Mike Bergman through the track, finishing only fractions of a
second behind him in 9th place. He’s been practicing hard in the off season
and it shows.
Tyler Evans, #53, a Rockstar Supercross racer, did very well in his first AMA
Supermoto event and second ever Supermoto race. Evans, having some
mechanical issues in the qualifying race and no points from last year, started in
the last position in the grid but pulled up through the ranks to finish 14th in
the Premier class, just behind Burton. After some modifications to the bike, we
expect some great finishes from him this season.
Although Carey Hart, # 46, was still out of commission due to a broken wrist
obtained at the Stateline race, we expect he’ll be ready to go for the June 3rd
race at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. We know we’ll see great results from
him. See you there!
