In the Lites class, Renthal riders Dean Wilson and Cole Seely have secured 3 of the 6 wins thus far in the series, with Dean now sitting atop the point standings and Cole sitting in 3rd. Marvin Musquin who has shown the speed to run up front, has had bad luck hinder his chances and sits 4th in the points.
As for the East Lites contenders, it’s wide open as Renthal supported riders Blake Baggett and Darryn Durham of the Pro Circuit Squad will be facing a very fast Ken Roczen on the Red Bull KTM team. Saturday night we will find out who is prepared and who isn’t.
