The 2013 Monster Energy Supercross series continued on Saturday night at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Bel-Ray racers scored victories in three of the four heat races and were rewarded with two podium finishes in the evening’s main events.
Bel-Ray-backed Rockstar Energy racing’s Blake Wharton continued the momentum he gained from last week’s Houston Supercross victory to score a strong win in the first 250SX heat race of the night. He started the main event inside the top five and battled early on with his competitors before settling into a third-place finish and his fifth podium of the season.
Bel-Ray racers won both 450SX heat races of the evening, with RCH Racing’s Josh Hill scoring the victory in the first heat race and Rockstar Energy’s Davi Millsaps taking the victory in the second. Hill’s success was especially inspirational, as it marked his first heat race victory since recovering from multiple injuries suffered over the past two years.
The main event began with both Hill and Millsaps inside the top five. Millsaps quickly got by Hill and moved into third place, a position he would hold until the finish. Hill, meanwhile, continued inside the top five until the halfway point of the race. He slipped back to sixth and eventually finished in eighth place at the checkered flag. Hill’s RCH Racing teammate Broc Tickle began the main event in 15th and moved up as high as 12th place during the 20-lap main event. He eventually finished 13th by the time the checkered flag fell.
