SX Race Report
Kawasaki rider Jake Weimer brought home his fourth win in five races at a muddy Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. With just one short practice and a deteriorating racetrack, the 22-year-old claimed the Supercross Lites victory and extended his points lead to 26 with just three races remaining in the West Coast season.
The consistent rain made for a long day at the track as the teams waited nearly six hours for practice to start. The track crew did a good job keeping the track in good shape as it improved with each session.
Look for Team Husqvarna in several different disciplines during the 2010 season as the factory plans to reestablish the brand as the leader in off-road racing. The past season provided an excellent starting point according to Husqvarna Motorcycles NA president Mark Brady. "We are very pleased to build on Husqvarna’s rich racing heritage," says Brady. "However, we are now ready to make some more history!"
Speaking of history in the making, Husqvarna’s Glenn Kearney campaigned the GNCC series on a 2-stroke WR300.
