Muscle Milk Honda’s Tommy Hahn had this cool butt patch in honor of his hometown race. In the motos, Tommy went 9-7 for seventh overall. As a replacement rider, Hahn has so far proven to be the top contender on the team, as his teammate Justin Brayton has struggled in the first two rounds of the series.
We really didn’t have a reason to run this shot other than the fact that it was cool. Enjoy.
Another local racer was Rockstar Suzuki’s Blake Wharton. Wharton led a good portion of the second moto, but succumbed to charges by Tomac and Baggett to ultimately finish third. Wharton finished fourth overall on the day with his 6-3 moto scores.
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s replacement rider Ivan Tedesco overcame some bad luck to salvage 11-22 moto scores for 19th overall. In the second moto, Ivan went down early and 22nd was the furthest he could climb back to in the intense heat.
Lucas Oil/Troy Lee Designs/Honda’s rookie Jessy Nelson ripped the holeshot in both motos and ran up front for the majority of the race. A little known fact about the young racer is that he lost his left thumb in a crash as a kid and rides with a prosthetic thumb inside his glove. With as rough as the professional tracks get, we can’t even image how he holds on—very impressive. Nelson’s rides in both motos netted him seventh overall in only his second-ever professional race.
