March was a good month for Seely, who didn’t finish lower than fourth during the last four races. He brought that confidence and quickness to the Lone Star State, qualifying third, winning his heat race and then leading from start to finish in the Main Event.

“I’ve been having so much fun on the bike and I think that showed tonight,” said Seely. “If you asked me if I would have a win at Anaheim 1 or Phoenix, I would have probably told you no. But I feel like the past few races it’s been at my fingertips and I finally was able to capitalize. It feels amazing.”
