Troy Lee Designs riders Cole Seely and Fredrik Noren were faced with difficult conditions right from the start of the day at the sixth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, leaving them to battle the elements from the moment they hit the track. While Seely ended up sitting out the round following a practice crash earlier in the week, Noren bounced back from a tough Moto 1 to finish 11th in Moto 2.
He won at Long Beach earlier this year, and he won at Sonoma last fall (also in 2007). So on Saturday, Scott Dixon has a shot now to complete a career sweep of the three California race tracks that currently make up the Verizon IndyCar Series schedule, if he can deliver a win Saturday afternoon in the MAVTV 500 at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway. Asked whether it would mean anything to have a single state “triple crown,” as you were, the driver of the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet replied that it doesn’t mean more or less than any other win would mean.
Former IndyCar racer Jeff Ward qualified on the pole in his Ganassi-run Ford, but elected to start from the inside of the second row. Eriksson instead took the inside pole from Ken Block and Eriksson’s teammate Joni Wiman.
Straight off a weekend of demos in South Africa, Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block headed into Daytona Beach, Florida, for Rounds Two and Three of the 2015 Red Bull Global Rallycross championship.
