RACE RECAP

Rockstar Energy SX Tour – Round 2

Round 2 of the Rockstar Energy SX Tour was at Delaware Speedway in London, Ontario.  Built within the car racing oval, the SX track had a straight rhythm style with 2 main rhythm lanes making the majority of the layout with a few corners built around it.  The track soil being entirely clay, the base was rock hard and demanded precise throttle control to make any passes. With Dylan Wright sidelined from an injury he sustained at Round 1, the GDR Honda Squad only had MX1 rider Colton Facciotti in the line up.  In the MX2 class, freshly turned Pro and Fox Brigade graduate, Jake Tricco was in the line up.

 

Jake Tricco #527 – MX2:

With no Supercross experience and minimal Arenacross experience, Jake Tricco lined up for his first attempt at racing in the Pro class at Round 2 of the SX Tour.  Riding conservative with the primary goal of gaining experience with each lap on the track, Tricco started the day with a 10th place qualifying time and then stepped it up in his Heat race with a 3rd place finish.  In the Main Event, Tricco rode smooth and consistent in 5th place from start to finish giving him a solid top 5 in his Pro debut.  Jake will sit out Round 3 but rejoin series for Round 4 in Hamilton.

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1:

Carrying momentum from the technical Montreal Supercross track, Colton Facciotti came into Round 2 setting the 1st place qualifying time and then scored 2nd place in his Heat race.  Hoping to inch closer to the Triple Crown points lead, Facciotti needed to take the win over points leader, Cole Thompson.  Starting the Main Event in 6th place, Facciotti delicately worked his way into 3rd place at the halfway stage of the race. Then benefiting from a fallen rider, Facciotti advanced into 2nd place where he finished out the race, but was unfortunately behind Triple Crown points leader, Cole Thompson which now puts Colton down 8 points.
