The 790 was Casey Cochran, who similar to Haiden Deegan last year, made the quick jump from LL's B class to pro. He knocked out some pro-am motos at Unadilla and was in for Budds Creek. Although he's a part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team, his race bike was a mix of amateur and pro. Most notably, he was still using his amateur bike suspension. Octopi Media
