COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (March 13, 2010) - Night two of the AMA Arenacross Series' round from Council Bluffs, Iowa's Mid America Center produced one of the most exciting battles of the season as Babbitt's Monster Energy/TiLUBE Kawasaki's Josh Demuth, of North Richland Hills, Texas won his fifth AMA Arenacross class race of the season. GPF/Babbitt's Kawasaki's Daniel Aulsaybrook, of Ortonville, Mich., captured the AMA Arenacross Lites Western Regional Championship win for his first career victory.

After a dominating victory on Friday night, premier class points leader Tyler Bowers, of Danville, Ky., had his hands full on Saturday evening as his teammates Demuth and Chad Johnson, of Rhinelander, Wis., battle bar-to-bar with the nine-time winner throughout the 25-lap main event. The trio of riders, who have dominated the 2010 season, traded the lead on several occasions and even had to deal with the pressure from reigning series champion Jeff Gibson, of Thornville, Ohio, throughout the race. Each of the Babbitt's-mounted riders found himself at the front of the field at some point but it was Demuth who prevailed in the end, leading the way for another Babbitt's podium sweep. Johnson brought home second while Bowers was third.

After a strong runner-up performance on Friday night, Aulsaybrook was the man to beat in Saturday's AMA Arenacross Lites main event. The second year rider was virtually untouchable throughout the 25-lap main event and led the way to a GPF 1-2 finish with teammate and points leader A.J. Catanzaro coming home second. Foremost Insurance Yamaha's Jim Neese, of Julian, N.C., rounded out the podium in third for the second straight night.

Bowers' lead over teammate Demuth currently sits at 19 points in the premier AMA Arenacross class while Catanzaro's lead sits at 20 points over Reynard Mods Kawasaki's Cory Green, of Nowata, Okla., in the AMA Arenacross Lites Western Regional Championship.

The 2010 AMA Arenacross Series continues with the penultimate round next weekend from Dayton, Ohio and the Nutter Center.
