Casey Martin and Carrie Auchter Results

Due to another engine failure early in the week Casey was once again riding a practice
bike. During the Pro Am Unlimited qualifying heat Casey was running behind lap traffic
and was pushed into the LCQ. Things were looking up during the LCQ when he came from
mid-pack to take over the third spot and get into the main event. Despite an in air
collision with another rider Casey was able to hold on and finish strong. In the final
moto Casey was once again underpowered, he was third out of the gate but was left
towards mid pack by the first turn. After that he picked off riders until he was
holding the sixth place spot. On the final lap his engine let loose and the weekend
was over. Casey's only statement was, "It's frustrating. The bike felt good, it simply
couldn't handle the demand I was putting on it. Hopefully by the next race I'll be
back on a race bike and salvage a tough season."

Carrie got an overall 5th in the Women's class. After missing practice on Friday
Carrie continued to pick up speed and finish with better lap times each time around
picking off riders where possible. "The track was great! I had a heavy vibration in
the bars from the engine for some reason but the Precision dampener helped keep my
bars straight when my arms got tired." Remarked Carrie after pulling off the track
from moto 2.

We are also pleased to announce two new sponsors. In light of some parts supply issues
and engine reliability problems effective immediately we have teamed up with JB Racing
( and Moto-Xperts ( As a team we feel like
this will help put us and all of our current sponsors in a better position to win on
race day.
