Dayton AMA Arenacross: Round 3 Results

AMA Arenacross

TUF Honda’s Jeff Gibson, of Blacklick, Ohio, is looking to make the 2011 AMA Arenacross Series championship his campaign of redemption.

After capturing the overall victory in the first two rounds of the season in Tulsa and Kansas City, the 2009 champion kept it going inside Dayton’s Nutter Center with win number three.

In the Arenacross Lites class, DG Flooring Kawasaki’s Adam Gulley, of Jonesburg, Mo., also stayed perfect with his second win of Eastern Regional Championship.
 
After failing to capture a win in his title defense last season, Gibson has been better than ever so far in 2011. On Saturday night, he took advantage of a good start and capitalized on every opportunity that came to him, as he’s done all season.

He held off his TUF Honda teammate Cole Siebler, of Emmett, Idaho, to make it a 1-2 podium effort for the team while Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLUBE Kawasaki presented by Maxxis’ Chad Johnson, of Rhinelander, Wis., finished third.
 
Similar to the Arenacross Lites Eastern Regional Championship season-opener in Kansas City, Gulley established himself as the rider to beat in the ultra-competitive field and is now the man the beat in the championship after another strong outing.

Gateway Cycles Kawasaki’s Steven Mages, of Sardinia, Ohio, finished in the runner-up spot while FHK Honda’s Kyle White, of Freeport, Ill., rounded out the podium in third.
 
The AMA Arenacross Series continues next weekend from Denver, Colo., and the Denver Coliseum for the first two-night round of the season next Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. MT.
