Finishing Strong

Oakland marked the halfway point in the Western Regional SX season.  And by the end of the night, Tyler Bowers not only secured his 2nd place position in the championship points, but he again proved his persistent ability to ride hard and finish up near the front.  In qualifying, Bowers rode his KX250F to the 5th fasted lap.  He followed that up with 4th place finish in Heat 2.  The holeshot start again proved to be elusive for Bowers, he was in 9th place after the first lap.  However, as he has shown earlier this season, he can easily work his way through the pack.  By lap 8, Bowers was in 3rd and appeared set for yet another podium finish.  He battled valiantly for several laps, but with only 3 laps to go, Bowers slipped back a position and crossed the finish line in 4th place.

Starting Up Front

Chris Alldredge had high hopes for Coliseum and was looking to seize his first podium since moving up into the 250SX Monster Energy Supercross series.  In qualifying, Alldredge struggled to find his speed; however, he won the LCQ and ensured his place the main event.  In what is now becoming his trademark, Alldredge pulled off a flawless start.  When the pack rounded corner 1, he was up in front on the outside.  Before the first lap was done, Alldredge took the race lead and lshot away from the rest of the riders aboard his Pro Circuit KX250F.  Alldredge rode dominantly for nearly two laps before being passed.  A crash on lap 5 ended his evening.
