Cole Seely Runs Down Top 10 Finish at High Point

Seely fixes himself in the top 10

Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely remained a fixture inside the top 10 for another week after scoring ninth overall at the fourth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. His 9-13 moto result was good enough to keep his top-10 streak another week as he tackled the tough terrain at High Point Raceway.

One week ago, the circuit just north of Morgantown, West Virginia was flooded with several inches of rain, making the track extremely rutted from the start of the first moto. In the opening race, Seely was tracking to make another finish in the top five, but went down with just a handful of laps to go. With little time to make up the positions lost, Seely settled for ninth.

In the second moto, Seely started the race mid-pack, coming around the first lap in ninth. He continued his charge forward the entire 30 minutes plus two laps, finishing the moto sixth, giving him an overall score of ninth.

“It was nice having a weekend off, but we’re putting our heads down and trying to get on that podium each race,” said Seely. “The track was tough today and it ended up getting me in that first moto. I’m just glad we were able to stay healthy and looking forward to next weekend.”

The fifth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship makes its annual trip to the South with a stop at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee on June 25.
