WORCESTER, MA – January 14, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – In front of a packed house at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, two-time 250SX AMSOIL Arenacross defending champion, Gavin Faith, captured his second-consecutive victory at Round 2 of 2018 AMSOIL Arenacross, the most intense indoor professional motorcycle racing on the planet, on January 13.
Faith dominated the first 250AX Main Event with his teammate Jacob Hayes coming in second. The Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Head 2 Head Challenge winner, Chris Blose, rounded out the podium.
