_DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing/Yamaha Racing News


Toronto, Ontario - The AMA Supercross Series traveled north of the border, making an appearance in Canada by way of a huge fan base inside the Rogers Centre over the past weekend. A technical track, with extremely slick soil treated DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing/Yamaha's #341 Nico Izzi, and #577 Martin Davalos, to a tough night of racing.

Lites Heat #1 began in solid form with Davalos upfront and setting the standard. For five laps, Davalos kept his composure as he went after the leader. Holding strong, the Yamaha pilot fended off any attacks and raced on to a 2nd place. Izzi showed promise, but was buried back in 12th around the first turn. Quickly Izzi wicked up his pace, seeing him make a move for a decent qualifying spot, and by races end he finished in 5th.

For the main event, track conditions had deteriorated which made racing all the more difficult. Finishing lap one in 6th, Izzi avoided all the carnage and set out towards the front. Unfortunately, Davalos didn't fair as well after starting around 10th, he was caught up in some pile ups that relinquished him all the way back to 20th on lap one. After a few more laps into the race, Martin had regrouped and etched his way up in to the top fifteen, only to crash one more time. At this point, Izzi rode at one steady pace, and with the race past the halfway mark, he comfortably ran just inside the top ten. With the 15 laps winding down, the DNA teammates rode onward in trying to salvage a good result. In the end, Nico put together a 10th place finish and Davalos took home a 15th for the night.
