Tyler Hamrick Notches Moto Win as Fill in Rider for Vechery Racing

Danville, Va (June 9, 2013)ƒ‚ —“ After missing the last race in Illinois due to Tim Dettling’s injury, Vechery Racing returned to action at the sixth round of the series with fill in rider Tyler Hamrick. Hamrick, who currently sits 11thƒ‚ in AMA Pro ATV Standings was asked by Vechery Racing to fill in on the vacant Pro-Am ATV while Dettling continues to recover from injuries sustained at the fourth round of the series.

In first moto action Hamrick rocketed off the line on the Hetrick powered Honda only to get bogged down on the soft dirt on the outside of the hole shot. ƒ“I got a great jump off the line, but with my outside gate pick I hit some of the soft wet dirt and had to settle in from there.ƒ” Stated Hamrick after moto one. Tyler would continue to push his way up to 8thƒ‚ place until his foot was caught up in the heel guard netting. After pulling over and freeing himself, Tyler charged from 15thƒ‚ back to 7thƒ‚ as the checkers waved.

Tyler’s AMA Pro ATV experience would pay off in the second moto as the quick turnaround between motos would take its toll on many of the riders. After coming in 4thƒ‚ after the first lap, Hamrick would ride smart and consistent for the whole race and would grab the lead on the last lap and take it to the checkered flag. The 7 —“ 1 score would give Hamrick a 4thƒ‚ overall and also give Vechery racing their 3rdƒ‚ moto win out of six Pro-Am motos contested this year. ƒ‚ 

Vechery Racing and their sponsors hope to see as many racing friends and families as possible at the June 22ndƒ‚ Ohio Crew event at Braircliff MX in Nashport, Ohio. There will be a dinner, freestyle show by JR Hinds, Open practice and a benefit auction for rider Tim Dettling featuring many of the parts that can be found on the Vechery’s Pro and Pro-Am ATVs.
