Dedicated Athletics Indy SX Report

Courtesy of  Dedicated Athletics

Lucas Oil Stadium- Indianapolis, IN - Supercross headed to Indianapolis, IN for the fifth round of the 250 east coast lites class. With 60,000 fans in attendance, Dedicated Athletics rider Jimmy DeCotis #613 was looking to improve on last week's results. DeCotis qualified 10th during  daytime qualifying practice. In the heat race, DeCotis lined up on the inside gate, which proved to be a great gate pick. DeCotis had a great jump and tucked inside of the first turn to grab the holeshot!! Musquin would get past DeCotis early, but DeCotis held onto his spot and finished 2nd! His best heat race result of the season!

With some confidence heading into the main event, DeCotis looked to get a solid result. In the main event, DeCotis again chose the inside gate. DeCotis got a good jump as the riders headed toward the first turn. DeCotis clipped a tuff block dragging it through the first corner. The tuff block was hard to shake and DeCotis dropped to the back of the pack before he managed to get flowing again. As we have seen this season, DeCotis fought hard and managed to move his way up to 12th, matching his result from last week. DeCotis was a bit frustrated with the result, but still sits in the top 10 in points as the series moves to Toronto, Canada next week.

Dedicated Athletics is extremely proud to support DeCotis’ racing efforts. DeCotis is also proudly supported by High Octane Harley Davidson, Fox, Spectro Oils, Pro Circuit, 100%, Ryno Power, DC Shoes, Factory Connection, Ever Rev, KJC Fitted, CRF Stuff, Hinson, Dunlop and Renthal.

AG Motorsports Indy Race Report

AG Motorsports Indy Race Report
Presented by Dragon Racing Fuels

Indianapolis, IN – As the 11th round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross rolled in to Indy, AG Motorsports rider, Kyle Peters was ready to improve on his season. Little did he know this was going to be the best night of his Pro career.

After qualifying 12th fastest for the evening event, Kyle was placed in Heat 1. When the gate dropped for Heat 1, Kyle got a good start and settled in the 5th position wire to wire.

Having a solid gate for the Main Event, Kyle was focused on getting a good start. When the gate dropped, Kyle grabbed a handful of throttle and challenged Wharton for the Holeshot. Kyle quickly got around Wharton as they battled for the first lap before Wharton used up all the real estate on the track forcing Kyle to go outside the tough blocks. Wharton and Kyle quickly pulled away from the pack as they settled in for the 15 lap Main Event. On lap 13, Musquin fought his way through the pack and challenged Kyle for the number 2 position. Kyle made a mistake and Musquin took advantage as Kyle gave up the position. With two laps to go, it appeared Kyle was looking at his first Pro career podium finish in 3rd place. But in the final, Wharton mistimed the rhythm section and went down giving Kyle the number 2 position when the checkered flag dropped. With a 2nd place finish, Kyle moved up to 5th in the series championship points chase.

“This is such a great feeling”, said Kyle. “I have worked hard and will continue to put in the work. I want to thank my team and family for supporting me and can’t wait for Toronto.”

“We are very happy for Kyle”, said Al Albiker, Team Manager. “It was a great night for AG Motorsports and everyone involved with the team. The day started off with a lot of chasing the set up that we had and trying to make Kyle more comfortable with the bike and the track conditions. Each practice we kept tuning on it to make it better. Kyle did what he does best and got a great start to put him in a position to finish on the podium. I would like to thank everyone that supports us with the team and congratulate the entire Peters family on Kyle’s first, but not last podium finish.”

Be sure to follow Kyle on Twitter at; and on Facebook at;

Bel-Ray Racers Score Top Results in Indianapolis Supercross

Bel-Ray Racers Score Top Results
in Indianapolis Supercross
            FARMINGDALE, N.J. (March 18, 2013) ― Round 11 of the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross series took place on Saturday, March 16 in Indianapolis, Indiana for the Indianapolis Supercross. Bel-Ray-sponsored racers continued their positive results, with all four of Bel-Ray’s professional racers finishing inside the top 15.
                Bel-Ray-sponsored Rockstar Racing team member Blake Wharton had an excellent beginning to his night of racing. He won his heat race and took the Nuclear Cowboyz holeshot at the start of the main event. Wharton rode a virtually flawless race for 14 laps of the 15-lap main event. A costly error in the whoop section put an end to Wharton’s excellent night. He lost his lead in a crash and got hung up on a tuff block, delaying his return to the race. A ninth-place finish at the checkered flag was his final result. He remains in third place in the series’ points standings.
                Wharton’s teammate Davi Millsaps rebounded on Saturday night from two off races with less-than-ideal results. Like Wharton, Millsaps took advantage of the power Bel-Ray lubricants provides to take the Nuclear Cowboyz holeshot at the beginning of the main event. In second early during the race, Millsaps fell back to third a couple of laps in. He held that position until the final lap, when a tip-over in a corner allowed James Stewart by for third and left Millsaps in fourth at the checkered flag. Millsaps remains in second in the series’ points standings.
                Bel-Ray-supported Team RCH member Broc Tickle started the main event at the opposite end from Millsaps. A first-turn incident broke his pinky finger and forced him to race through the field from the back of the pack. A methodical strategy allowed Tickle to work his way to an eventual 11th-place finish. With this finish, Tickle is in 10th place in the series’ points standings.
                Tickle’s teammate Josh Hill continued his successful return to supercross with a season’s-best 12th-place finish. Hill sat out the last two seasons with injuries and has been making positive strides each weekend this season.
                Both Rockstar Racing and RCH Racing teams rely on Bel-Ray lubricants to protect their machines and provide maximum power and protection of vital components.
                Bel-Ray® Works Thumper® Racing  Synthetic Ester 4T Engine Oil is one of the products chosen by the teams to keep their machines performing their best.
             Bel-Ray® Works Thumper® Racing  Synthetic Ester 4T Engine Oil is a 4-stroke synthetic motorcycle racing oil that has been developed for full-works competition use and is designed to withstand extreme racing conditions. Full-synthetic ester-based oils withstand the highest temperatures and stresses,  providing the ultimate 4-stroke motorcycle oil.

Tyler Bowers Secures Third Consecutive
AMSOIL Arenacross Title with Podium Finish in Denver

Maxx Malatia Wins Western Regional Arenacross Lites Championship

DENVER (March 16, 2013) – The final night of AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, was a true showdown of the season’s top riders in the battle to claim the 2013 title. With five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael watching on, Team Faith/FLY Racing KTM’s Jeff Gibson outlasted his closest rivals in the Race to the Championship to claim his second overall win of the season by sweeping the Main Events. However, with a solid pair of finishes of his own in the Main Events, Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki presented by Maxxis rider Tyler Bowers relied on a third-place overall finish to claim his third consecutive Arenacross Class title and become the inaugural winner of the Race to the Championship. A champion was also crowned in the Western Regional Arenacross Lites Class, with Honda’s Maxx Malatia capturing his first career title.
Saturday’s opening Arenacross Class Main Event on the final night of the season provided a glimpse of what Gibson had in store. The KTM rider needed to overcome a five-point deficit in the championship standings to overcome Bowers, and did all he could to give himself the best chance at stealing the title. Gibson grabbed the holeshot and proceeded to never give it up, leading all 12 laps. Behind Gibson, Bowers positioned himself in a podium spot in third and moved past Team Faith/FLY Racing KTM’s Kelly Smith, last night’s winner, for second early in the race. Bowers followed in second, putting the pressure on Gibson in the final Main Event, while Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Zach Ames finished third.
Carmichael had the privilege of selecting the inversion for the final Main Event of the 2013 season and for the second night in a row selected the full 16-rider inversion. This added to the dramatic final showdown between Gibson and Bowers.
As the gate dropped on the second Main Event, Fun Mart Cycle KTM’s Michael Willard positioned himself at the front of the field, while Gibson was inside the top five despite the last gate pick, just a few positions ahead of Ames. Bowers wasn’t far behind, but needed to make up ground on his closest title contender in order to maintain his points lead.
Gibson worked quickly on the riders in front of him and moved into second before the halfway point. Just a few laps later, he passed Willard for the lead. Ames followed him into second shortly thereafter. Bowers was successful in his climb through the field, but needed to make a last-lap pass on Willard in order to secure a spot on the podium.
In the end, Gibson’s perfect night and overall victory gave him the best shot at surpassing Bowers, but he ultimately fell just three points short of the title.
Earlier in the evening, Bowers provided an additional cushion to his points lead by winning the Head-to-Head Bracket Racing. He was awarded an additional championship point for his triumphant effort. That point proved to be a difference maker in the overall classification for the evening, helping Bowers finish second overall, just one point ahead of his teammate Ames in third.
Bowers completed the 2013 season with a class-leading 10 overall wins, including 20 Main Event victories. He became just the third rider in AMSOIL Arenacross history to claim three consecutive championships, joining Dennis Hawthorne and Buddy Antunez.

The Western Regional Arenacross Lites Class Championship also came to an end on Saturday night, with Malatia holding a six-point lead coming into the evening. Out of the gate, Letko KTM’s Tanner Moore grabbed the holeshot and never looked back, leading wire-to-wire in the 18-lap Main Event.

Malatia, who won on Friday night, asserted himself into second and stayed there throughout the remainder of the race, while a battle ensued for third between Moto Adventure Kawasaki’s Travis Bannister and All-Terrain Motorsports Kawasaki’s Cody Church.

Moore won by almost 10 seconds, while Malatia secured the title with a runner-up result. Bannister outlasted Church to finish on the podium again in front of his hometown crowd.

In the end, Malatia won the Western Regional Championship by 19 points, taking advantage of tough nights by his title contenders.

TUALATIN, OR (March 14, 2013) and AMA ATV MX Champion John Natalie, Jr., join teams  to tackle the fierce challenge of racing in the 2013 Mountain Dew AMA Pro Racing ATV MX National Championship series. The racing team is ready to contest all rounds of the series with only one goal – the 2013 Championship. is a long-time supporter of ATV racing and stood behind many impressive and hard working riders over the years. We’re always looking out for good opportunities to continue this effort.  John Natalie, Jr.’s involvement with ATV racing spans more than 20 years. His dedication is without question as he’s won countless races including several Championships. His 2012 team is dissolved but his passion for racing remains unquenched. He wants to be back on the track this year.
It should then come as no surprise: Introducing the ATV MX Racing Team.
Fielded by Team and piloting a Honda TRX450R, Natalie’s involvement in all 10 rounds of the series  encompasses events in the Eastern and Mid-Western U.S, starting on March 23 at Aonia Pass MX Park in Washington, Georgia. Throughout the season, the team may add racers currently under the tutelage of Natalie at select events, dependent on conditions. Make no mistake, Natalie is the star of this show and we will work hard to keep him at the front all year.
“It’s great to have on board for 2013!” exclaimed Natalie.  “We’ve worked well with them before. ATV racing is expensive, and there is no factory support and few sponsors, so it is good that MotoSport cares about ATV racing and the people who do it, and supports them like no other. With them, we know we have a friend behind us in our efforts who will be there when we need them. We are looking forward to bigger and better things and we hope to bring more recognition to MotoSport and that they will do the same for our team.”
Bill Butcher, founder and CEO of, said, “We have long been proud to be a part of ATV racing, and we are very happy to have joined with a professional racer who has had great success in the sport and who brings with him a strong desire to win races. Everyone sees that in John Natalie, and the 2013 ATV MX Championship will be far more thrilling with him in it and especially with him on our team.”
Dee Manshack, a longtime friend, mechanic and engine builder for Natalie, is pit support. He also owns and operates Rage ATV Racing. Fred Reiser, a skilled mechanic and good friend, handles the wrench.
The team is set, the business is done, and the crew is in place. The race team is ready to go. Seeing is believing, so tune in to the 2013 Mountain Dew AMA ATV MX National Championship and cheer for John Natalie, Jr. certainly will!
Bull Butcher started after racing in the 1970s and 1980s and being unable to find a place with an expansive supply of parts and accessories without the hassles and limitations of a dealership.

Cobra RCSX Report

Courtesy of Cobra

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., – What a weekend for Cobra Moto families down at Florida’s Daytona International Speedway as they got to kick off the popular “Bike Week” festivities in a big way, checking out the world’s top supercross racers at round ten of Monster Energy Supercross, then getting to race the same track the following two days on the infield of the hallowed motorsport grounds for the Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship.
Leading Cobra with a dominating performance in the premier 50cc Sr. class was New York’s Reed Cooper. The Cobra Moto National Team member, who was the runner-up last year at Loretta Lynn’s, won his main event qualifier, and then cruised to a victory in the class. Reed would be joined on the podium by a fast newcomer to the Cobra Moto program, at least on American soil, as Venezuela’s Jaquel Gonzales would place 3rd. Noteworthy is the fact that Jaquel’s father, Jaquel Sr., is Venezuela’s leading Cobra dealer and will be racing at this weekend’s Daytona AMA Superbike event.
With a strong presence in the pits at the Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship, Cobra Moto and President Sean Hilbert were very pleased with the how things turned out over the weekend.
“The Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship was more than an event … it was an experience,” said Hilbert. “And that’s key to the future of amateur MX. Having the pro race on Saturday so all the amateurs can be there to watch, then helping kick off Bike Week themselves by racing the same track as the pros and hanging out with Ricky Carmichael for two days … it was a really, really well done event.”

Up next for Cobra: The 37th annual One Industries GNC International Grand National Motocross Final, presented by FMF, at Texas’ Oak Hill Raceway, March 13-17.
Don’t forget your entry for the “Cobra Tales” video contest. For official Contest Rules, Submission Guidelines and Contest Eligibility link to our website at:

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (January 21, 2013) MX Sports Pro Racing and all event Promoters of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, wish to congratulate Kevin Windham on his decision to retire. Windham announced his retirement during opening ceremonies of the Anaheim Supercross on Saturday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. The GEICO Honda rider made the decision to call time on his career after meeting with family, friends and his team.
Windham, 34 years, has been racing at the highest levels of the sport since 1994, when the mini-cycle prodigy turned pro after winning eight titles at Loretta Lynn's AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships. His professional career
"Without a doubt Kevin Windham will be remembered as one of the most popular athletes the sport has ever known," said MX Sports Pro Racing President, Davey Coombs. "He was not only an exceptional rider, but a great role model who was always generous with his time and the fans. He has provided countless great races and memories, as well as nearly forty career wins. By any measure, he was one of American motocross racing's greatest heroes. We have know Kevin since he first came to Loretta Lynn's on a 65cc mini-cycle back in 1988, and it has been our pleasure to see him enjoy such a long and illustrious career. We truly appreciate his efforts, both on the race track as a competitor and off the track as a wonderful ambassador for the sport."
Windham won his first AMA Pro Motocross National on May 12, 1996, at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif. His last win came on September 4, 2010, at Steel City Raceway. The time between Windham's first National win and last win marks the longest gap in Pro Motocross history.

MotoConcepts Racing: St. Louis SX Report

MotoConcepts Racing:  St. Louis SX Report

SPOKANE, WA (March 4, 2013) - MotoConcepts Racing by Smartop riders Gavin Faith (#67 MCR250) and Mike Alessi (#800 MCR450) continued their string of impressive rides this past weekend at the St. Louis Supercross.  

Gavin Faith’s race strategy took an unexpected turn when he went down in his heat race and, despite coming up just short on a valiant pass attempt, was unable to automatically qualify for the Main.  With the pressure of the LCQ firmly on his shoulders, Gavin put in a strong ride to finish in the second spot and, though later than planned, transferred into the Main event.

With the last pick on the gate, Faith made a smart move cutting inside on the first turn and was mid-pack after the first lap.  As one of the top riders in the class, Gavin worked his way forward and was inside the top 6 at the half-way point.  Unfortunately, Gavin would hit the deck again in St. Louis and relinquish a possible podium finish. He remounted and would end the night in the 11th position overall.

In the first 450 Heat race, MCR rider Mike Alessi raced to an uneventful yet solid ride to transfer directly to the Main.  Alessi completed the first lap in the 5th position and remained there for the 8-lap race to finish in the 5th spot.  

When the gate dropped for the 450 Main it was a scene most fans have seen many times before; Alessi rocketing out to the front with another patented Nuclear Cowboyz® Holeshot award.   Alessi was in a great spot and laying down fast laps until the red flag stopped the race in order for the medical team to assist a fallen rider.  

For the first-time in the veterans career, Mike Alessi lined up in the staggered start formation for the restart.  While a holeshot in the staggered start would be impossible, Alessi managed to move his way past a few riders and get up front with the leaders.  On lap 14,  Factory Honda’s Trey Canard moved up a position and was behind Mike Alessi.  A great race ensued between to the two riders and for 5 laps Alessi held off the charge of the Anaheim 1 runner up to finish a solid 7th overall.   

With strong rides by both riders the past few weeks, the Supercross series moves to Daytona Beach, Florida with its unique, outdoor-style, SX layout and MotoConcepts Racing is confident its best results of the season are within reach.
