FARMINGDALE, NJ – September 16, 2011 – Bel-Ray Company, Inc. – Bel-Ray Racing-Weekend Wrap-Up
This past weekend for Bel-Ray’s premier motorcycle racers featured motocross in France and Moto2 competition in Spain.
The Motocross of Nations took place at the Saint Jean D’Angely circuit in France and Bel-Ray racers were present. TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing’s Chad Reed led the way against the best in the world to win his first moto since the now famous Millville crash. Reed’s 1-7 moto scores helped him lead the Australian team to their first ever podium with a 3rd overall finish. Fellow Bel-Ray racer Tanel Leok finished 6-12 in each of his two motos to help the Estonian team score a 10th place overall finish.
Moto2 racing returned to action after a one week break for the Grand Premio De Aragon in Spain. Continuing to shine and impress the racing community Bel-Ray backed Tech3 Racing’s Bradley Smith put on another masterful display of passing skills as he charged from a 16th place at the end of Lap 1 to 6th at the checkered flag. Teammate Mike DiMeglio had his breakout ride finishing in 12th place at the end of the race just 1.5 seconds behind the top 5.
