Baltimore, MD- After a strong showing at the opening round of Arenacross in Des Moines, Iowa; Race Tech supported StormLakeHonda.com rider Kurt McCabe loaded up his van and headed east to the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
McCabe, a former Lites class champion in the Arenacross series, is choosing to focus solely on the extremely competitive premier class this winter. The first double header on the tour, with racing on both Friday and Saturday night would prove to be a bit of a rollercoaster for McCabe.
On Friday night, McCabe would find himself lining up on the back row during qualifying. With lap times hovering around the 24 second range, McCabe was unable to move into qualifying position.
McCabe came into Saturday night looking for redemption, and he was greeted with a much larger, fresh set of whoops on the track. McCabe and his Race Tech suspension often use the whoops as a passing point on the track, and he found himself at the front of the pack once again on Saturday.
After a strong ride in his heat race, McCabe would finish 3rd; earning him a spot in both the Dash for Cash and the Main Event. After not getting the start, McCabe laid up to save himself for the main event.
McCabe would take home another top 10 finish with a strong ride in the main event on Saturday night in Baltimore. After 2 rounds, McCabe used his 9th place finish in Baltimore to move into 11th place in the Arenacross class points, only one point out of the top 10.
The next round of the Arenacross series will take place November 11-13 in Madison, Wisconsin’s Alliant Energy Center. After a few years off the tour, the riders and crowd in Madison will be welcoming the return of the top Arenacross stars.
Joining McCabe in Madison under the Race Tech banner will be fellow StormLakeHonda.com rider Mikey Weese in the Lites class. After showing the speed to run up front at the opener, Race Tech’s Cody Gilmore will also come to the line in Madison looking for some redemption before setting his eyes on the Supercross series. Making his first appearance of the year in the Arenacross series, Vaughn Mays will look to put his Race Tech bike in the main events.
