DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing/Yamaha - St. Louis Supercross

_DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing/Yamaha News Release


This past Saturday the AMA Lites East coast Supercross series headed to the St. Louis' Edward Jones Dome for the final round. Nearly 60,000 fans were treated to a technical track that had great soil, and was very challenging to say the least. DNA Shred Stix/ Star Racing/Yamaha got the day started fantastically with #577 Martin Davalos standing high up in the charts in 3rd, at the conclusion of Timed-qualifying practice.

With the NCY backed rider slated into Heat #2, it was Davalos who pushed himself into 2nd early on. On lap two, Davalos acquired the lead with his sheer speed and went on racing aggressively right till the finish. For the second week in a row, Davalos took the heat race win in a convincing fashion and let it be known that he is a refreshed rider indeed.

The all important Main Event set out, with 15 laps ahead of him, after lap one Davalos sat inside the top ten in 7th. Still wanting more, Davalos climbed up to 5th and easily closed in on the top three riders by lap five. On lap eight, Davalos moved into 4th and kept the pressure on to hopefully reach the podium. Unfortunately right there after, Davalos lost some ground to the competitors ahead when he suffered from a few slight bobbles. Able to regroup, Martin continued on with consistent lap times straight through all the way to the checkers. Another valiant ride by Davalos helped him take home 4th, and his third top five finish of the year. Plus, he was able finish up in 9th in the overall east coast Supercross championship.

Star Racing thanks all these key backers for their quality service.
