Armstrong Strongarms GNC2 Win at Sacramento Mile

MEDFORD, OR – June 1, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – You can always count on the AMA Pro Flat Track GNC2 class to put on a show that will not disappoint and Saturday Night’s Sacramento mile was no exception as Motorcycle Superstore Bell Helmet’s Nick Armstrong powered his Southland Racing Honda to the overall class win.

This was Armstrong’s first career win and it was a close one as you could have thrown a blanket over the top three riders. It took Nick every lap before finally grabbing the lead finishing only 0.063 in front of Tristan Avery. Brandon Wilhelm finished 3rd 0.73 behind the leader.

“It feels awesome to come away with the Sacramento Mile win. Sacramento is special track for me. I got my first podium here last year and this year I earned my first win. This is kind of a home race for me and I have a lot of friends and family here, so to come away with this win is awesome.”
