Troy Lee Designs rider Fredrik Noren tied his career-best finish for the third round in a row by going seventh overall on a muddy and tough track at Washougal MX Park just outside Portland, Oregon. The conditions seemed to bring out the best in the Swede’s riding style, helping him score a notable 9-7 moto result.
How did you meet Rupert Walker and when did the idea of Revel Co come about?
[Brandon] I’ve known Rupert for a while now, but not till maybe two years ago did we actually start to hangout often. The first time I got to work with Rup was during the Chromag Liaison edit we did.
Troy Lee Designs rider Fredrik Noren kept the momentum going from the previous round to tie the career-best finish he scored just two weeks ago, finishing the day at a muggy Spring Creek MX Park in seventh overall. Not only did he tie his career-best overall, Noren also picked up the best moto finish of his career by coming across the line during the second moto in fifth.
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.
