Bel-Ray Supported Rider, Max Nagl, Takes Overall Win in Patagonia, Argentina
For Third Round of MXGP
Nagl’s Argentine Results Elevate Him to 2nd in Overall Championship Points
Before the Series Heads to Italy April 19
FARMINGDALE, N.J. (March 31, 2015) – The 2015 MXGP season is proving to be incredibly exciting one for Bel-Ray sponsored Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing rider Max Nagl. Following an overall win at the third round of the series in Patagonia Argentina, Nagl elevated himself to second in overall championship points as the teams head to Europe to compete in Italy, April 19.
Nagl’s overall win in Patagonia came as the result of a top three finish in the opening race and a holeshot that was followed by a first place finish in Moto2, positioning the German within ten points of championship leader, Clement Desalle.
“This is a fantastic result. I’m so happy for everyone involved that made this victory happen – it was a real team effort,” said Nagl. “With two wins from three rounds in these flyaway races I’m really excited to return to Europe for the next round in Italy.”
Bel-Ray has a long history of participating in and sponsoring riders competing in international motorsports. Bel-Ray supports Nagl as a result of a partnership with Husqvarna in which the brand is the recommended factory fill lubricant for each of Husqvarna’s powersports products.
