Weimer up on the big screen and the podium!
The Final of the Supercross season was crazy! People crashing all over the place...including a couple etnies riders. But coming out of nowhere was Sobe Samsun's Jake Weimer with a second place ride in the 250F East/West shootout! Jake admitted he din't ride very well in practice, but it all came together when it mattered! Congrats to Weimer on his best ride of the season!
Teammate Josh Grant wasn't quite as fortunate. After getting tangled up with Josh Hill in heat 1, Grant was way outside of qualifying position but came back strong, passing a bunch of guys from way back for a spot in the main event. In the main Josh didn't get a very good start...sixth place was where he would end up.
Boost Mobile Yamaha of Troy's Jason Lawrence was battling with Josh Grant for much of the main and came out on top of that battle in fourth place after getting second in the 250F West Supercross championship.
The 450F class was also pretty crazy with quite a few riders going down in the torn up whoops. One of those riders was Grant Langston...he crashed hard! Fortunately Langston was able to walk off the track on his own, but didn't finish the race.
Timmy Ferry was lookin' good and running strong in fourth for most of the race. Unfortunately, with only a few laps to go, Ferry fell over before the finish line and gave up a couple positions--he would get up to finish in sixth place.
The outdoor nationals are next...stay tuned folks.
