Chris Blose finishes 14th at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City; Team members answer questions posted from Facebook fans
Carlsbad, CA (May 2, 2011) – With Dodge Motorsports/Hart & Huntington teammate Ivan Tedesco out for the rest of the season due to injury, Chris Blose rode consistently and remains one of only eight riders to successfully make every Main of the 2011 AMA/FIM Supercross Championship series after Saturday night’s Round 16 race at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Before the race, Dodge Motorsports / Hart & Huntington asked team manager Kenny Watson, team mechanics Tony Berluti and Chad Geib and rider Chris Blose questions that fans had posted on the Hart and Huntington Facebook page. Check out the video on the Hart and Huntington YouTube channel to see their answers:
In qualifying rounds, Blose nabbed a top 5 start in Heat #2 and held onto his position until he crashed with two laps to go. Luckily for Blose, he was able to remount his bike quickly, and finished Heat #2 in 9th place, securing him the final direct transfer spot into the main event. Blose’s finish continued the Dodge Motorsports/Hart & Huntington streak of consecutive appearances in the Main event.
In the Main event, Blose rode fast out of the far left side of the starting gate sitting in the top 10 through the first turn. Battling back and forth for position with multiple riders throughout the evening, Blose finished 14th overall. “I had a great battle with Tommy Hahn, Nick Wey, Kyle Regal, and Michael Byrne this weekend. The fans here in Salt Lake City were great, and it was fun to have so many people supporting the team this weekend. I’m looking forward to Las Vegas next weekend,” said Blose who currently sits 15th in championship points.
This week, the Dodge Motorsports/Hart and Huntington team heads to Las Vegas, Nevada for the final round of Supercross racing.
