FARMINGDALE, NJ – June 27, 2011 – Bel-Ray Company, Inc. – Racing is an integral part of Bel-Ray Total Performance Lubricants and Bel-Ray’s team of professional racers competed across the globe this past weekend.
The Bel-Ray backed Tech3 Racing team of Bradley Smith and Mike DiMeglio came into the Iveco TT in Assen, Netherlands this past weekend with mixed results. Smith came in after a career best Moto2 finish with a 2nd the previous weekend in England, while DiMeglio has yet to find the rhythm that brought him the 2008 125cc World Championship. Smith backed up his prior round’s success with another podium finish. After leading the field during the race, Smith settled into a third place finish at the checkered flag. Smith’s excellent finish lands him in 4th place in the World Championship standings, just 4 points out of 3rd. Teammate DiMeglio showed promise early in the race and his speed brought him inside the top 5, when a small error caused him to go down. The bike was damaged and he could not finish the event.
TwoTwo Motorsports / Bel-Ray Racing’s Chad Reed came into the mile high city of Lakewood, CO with the red plate signifying the series points lead and left with the red plate in tact. His 3-3 moto finishes were good for 3rd overall in the tough conditions. Reed retains a 8 point lead heading into this upcoming weekend in Buchanan, MI.
Morden, Manitoba, Canada was the site of Round 4 of the CMRC National Championship series.
