The TiLube/Jack Links/TUF racing team entered the weekend with some additional excitement this week. We would be riding in the largest venue of the year in Atlanta. Arenacross would be the warm up race for the SX using ¾ of the SX track for our event on Friday. Lap times were almost double the usual in the 36+ second range.

Both riders were in heat one with Jace getting the holeshot followed by Faith and Ben. These three left the rest of the field and finished in the same order advancing directly to the main.

The first main event started off well with Jace getting the holeshot only to be hit by Steinke in the first turn dropping him back to 5th.  Ben had his worst start of the season rounding lap 1 in 14th. Jace made quick work passing Osby for third, but Osby got a little out of shape in the whoops and ran into Jace in the next turn dropping him back to 5th when he couldn’t do the finish line jump. By the time he got back to fourth the top three were out of reach. Ben had a strong ride from his 14th place start and finished 6th.

Jace got the holeshot in the second main event again in Main #2 and this time lead every lap for his 9th main event win and a second place overall (4-1) against Blose (1-4) due to Blose getting the extra point in the head to head event. Ben again had some first turn bad luck and finished 8th for 7th overall for the night.

Next race we will be in Southaven, MS... if you’re around stop in and see us.
