It’s pretty incredible to think that a satellite team would be leading the 450-class championship chase over all of the high-powered factory teams, but it’s happening. I spoke with Rockstar Energy Racing team owner Bobby Hewitt in San Diego and he told me that most of the teams, even the “after-market” teams, are fairly competitive when it comes to getting performance out of the 450s, thanks to the wealth of “four-stroke” knowledge and talented mechanics out there. And that he thinks his team’s key to success is making the rider, in his case, Davi Millsaps, as comfortable as possible. It’s also about being consistent every weekend, and I don’t think they are changing things around a whole lot for each race like, say, Chad Reed does. And that consistency in the bike is giving Millsaps a wealth of confidence.
