Fly Racing Race Report
Monster Energy Supercross arrived in sunny Jacksonville, Florida this past weekend for what turned out to be one of the most exciting and crazy rounds of the year. The weather was hot, the racing even hotter, and FLY Racing riders put on a spectacular show for the Jacksonville crowd as they once again filled 25% of the 450 class main event.
In the 450 Class, Trey Canard took the lead off the start and quickly pulled some distance on second place Chad Reed. A late race pass by Reed would test Canard’s resolve to win and he responded with an immediate return pass, put his head down, and charged to a spectacular second career 450 main event win.
Team Red Bull/KTM Racing rider Andrew Short also had another great night putting his FLY gear and helmet into a 5th place finish. Team BTO Sports/BBMX/Palmetto Suzuki put both of its riders, Michael Byrne and Jason Thomas, into the main event and finished 12th and 13th place respectively. Super-privateer Weston Peick once again put his Rock River ride into the main event, but an early get off in the main event forced him to DNF the race.
