Podium Thwarted
All appeared to be lining up perfectly for Joey Savatgy this Saturday in Indianapolis.  In practice, Savatgy fiercely wielded his KX around the track, clocking the third quickest lap time.  In his heat race, Joey ratcheted things up again and rode to a second place finish.  In the main event, Savatgy had a great start, rounding the first corner up near the front of the pack.  After the first lap he was in 4th place and Joey jumped into 3rd place on the second lap.  For the next several laps Savatgy dominantly held the 3rd position, but with 6 laps remaining he experienced a mechanical issue, which prematurely ended his night.

After the race, Savatgy was frustrated, but he remained optimistic and had already shifted his attention to the next round in Detroit that is coming up this Saturday.
