2011 AMA Motocross

After his toughest outing of the 250 Class season at the previous round in Unadilla, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Tyla Rattray of Africa looked to bounce back at a track in which he was able to take the win one year ago.

While leading in the late stages of the first moto at the Rockstar Energy Southwick National from Moto-X 338 in Southwick, Mass., Rattray experienced misfortune, stalling his engine and ultimately losing the lead and win to DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha’s Gareth Swanepoel, of South Africa.

In Moto 2, Rattray rebounded and took over the lead on Lap 4, gradually pulling away from the field (2-1). This gave him the overall win Saturday in Southwick.

Tyla Rattray (Monster Energy Kawasaki KX250F) says: “This track has been good to me. I’ve ridden in the sand a lot in my career, so it means a little more to win here. I settled for second in the first moto and knew the track was going to be tough in the second moto, so I pressured myself to get a good start, which I did. I was able to get into the lead, and then I just put my head down.”

Rattray’s Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki teammate Dean Wilson, of Scotland, finished in the runner-up spot (2-3), to maintain his points lead, while Swanepoel garnered his first career podium in third (5-2).

Wilson now holds a 38-point advantage over Rattray in the 250 Class standings.

In the Motorcycle-Superstore.com Women’s Motocross Championship, American Honda’s Ashley Fiolek, of St. Augustine, Fla., won her third race of the season with 1-2 moto results. Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda’s Tarah Gieger, of Puerto Rico, finished second (2-5), while KTM rider Alexah Pearson, of Sacramento, Calif., finished third (7-3).

The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship continues next weekend, on Saturday, September 3, from Delmont, Pa. Steel City Raceway will host the 11th of 12 rounds this summer, beginning at 1 p.m. EST.
