Martin Davalos started the night strong aboard his Husqvarna FC250 by claiming an early victory in his heat race. In the main, Davalos pulled the holeshot and led 10 laps before eventually settling into the fourth-place position where he finished. The top-five finish moved him from ninth to fifth overall in 250SX East rider point standings.

“Today was good,” said Davalos. “The team worked really hard this week, and we did a little testing to make me feel more comfortable. Both the practice and the heat race went well. I got a great start in the main event but I tightened up a bit. I think I was too worried about setting up my front wheel in the dragon’s back instead of driving through. I have a great bike and a great team behind me. I just need to work on the intensity a bit and come back swinging next weekend.”

“My night was ok,” said Anderson. “I got a good start, but got a little wide in the first corner and ended up seventh. I’m only one point out of fourth overall, which is good. Looking forward to coming back to Atlanta next Saturday. I’m just going to keep plugging away.”
