DAYTONA BEACH, FL – March 5, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely continued his streak of top 10 finishes with a heartfelt come from behind ride at the historic Daytona International Speedway.
After qualifying through the semi, Seely was hoping the extra track time would help him in the Main Event. Unfortunately, the opening lap of the Main Event wasn’t kind to the No. 14, forcing Seely to come around 21st on the opening lap. By the halfway mark, he’d jumped up to 14th and with two laps to go, he made it to 10th where he would finish the night.
“After going down, all I could think about was getting up as fast as I could,” said Seely. “Thankfully this race is longer than normal and it gave me more time to move up as much as I could. It’s definitely tough getting back into the groove after going down.”
Seely is currently fifth overall in the championship standings with nine rounds in the books. Monster Energy Supercross will race for the friendly fans in the north as the series heads back to Toronto, Canada to race inside the Rogers Centre on March 12.
