Motorcycle Monday … Snow-cross In Utah!!
Supercross and snow! I know, 2 words that typically don't come up in the same sentence!! It happened this past weekend though!!Motorcycle Monday, brought to us by Santa Teresa Motorsports, 910 Livingston in the upper valley. Take Country Club to the river and aye, there they be!! (Sorry .. a little left over pirate from Friday night there.) Anyway, hit up Santa Teresa for all your moto-needs. Bikes, street-dirt-quads-scooters. Plus parts, accesories and a great staff who understand riding!! Follow them on facebook @ motorsportsofnewmexico for weekly specials and savings. Also come in see the wide variety of side by side utility vehicles to fit all your needs from work to play!
This week, Snowcross!! Granted, it wasn't a blinding snow storm in Utah this week, but I do believe this is a first for Supercross. Check out the pictures! (One above, and one below!!)
In practice, Stewart has the fastest lap time (was there ever any doubt on that one??) Approx 42 seconds ... even in the cold, Bubba's hot!
Lites news, Hansen has a shot at the championship, but settles for 3rd this week. Bummer; I was really hoping he'd pull it off. Oh well .. on to Supercross!
In the qualifiers Stewart gets a holeshot, Villopoto gets a face full of really cold dirt and Dungey is racing hard.
Main event .. Stewart takes the hole shot, but he's NOT taking the podium. For most of the race though he holds the lead. In fact the "big 4", (no, not Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth. The 4 horseman, as I have refered to them!) are the leaders. That is bad-ass ... I WISH I could have been there for this one. Stewart, Reed, Villopoto and Dungey are fighting tooth and nail for this one!! (Remember, next week it's all over but the shouting!)
Bubba, Bubba, BUBBA!! Once again, Stewart snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. Wiping out not once, but twice! Practically back to back crashes that will cost him the win .... and a spot on the podium.
And then there were 3. Reed, Villopoto and Dungey slug it out through the last lap, running into the last place riders and each pushing hard for the win. Villopoto takes it! His 6th win this year and a nice points boost! Reed takes second, my man Dungey gets third and Bubba gets to kick back and watch from the pits. 4th place for James.
What a race!! Next week, it all really comes to a boil! Vegas Baby .. and the new king will be crowned!!
One last pic!! A gratuitous shot of my blondie for you to the left. (She's second from the right; in the grey shirt!) For more pics and all the points standings, visit supercross.com!
Locally, major thanks to all the local riders .. clubs and independents .. who showed for the Road Queens run!! It was a big turnout to benefit Robert Villegas. Thank you all! Hope to see you all again this weekend for The Cremators run! My Bros and I bringing you a fun Saturday afternoon/evening run. Lots of door prizes, live music, food and fun!! All to benefit the U. S. Armys' "Op Santa". (I know it's early, but they need to start building their toy supply up now to be ready by Christmas. So come one, come all!!) I'll get you more info on that later this week or you can send me an email .. firstname.lastname@example.org .. and I'll send you a flyer!!
