Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Fall Cup 2012: Pala Raceway

The second round of the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Fall Cup made its way to the southern-most track on the schedule, Pala Raceway. The day started off overcast with a mist in the air for practice, a sign the fall season is setting in. Pala Raceway had the normal, fast layout with a plethora of jumps mixed in to challenge every class of riders through the day. With 339 entries for the day, the track developed several lines as the racers searched for the perfect path through the braking bumps and ruts as the day wore on.

One of the local staples in the racing scene made a step up at the Pala round, as Andrew Silverstein made the move to the pro ranks, using the second round of the series to make his debut. Silverstein made an early statement as he shot out to the lead in his first moto and brought home a dominating win against some of the series regulars. The leader of one of the series sponsors also made an appearance, as Brian Deegan brought out his son to compete at the Pala race. The youngest representative of the Metal Mulisha was a hard charger in the Pee Wee class.

The Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Fall Cup has started off strong with heavy competition in every class. As the year winds down to a close, many riders have their sights set on the year end prize of a new Yamaha YZ450F motorcycle that will be raffled off to series members that have entered races throughout the year and have tickets in the drawing. The next round of the series rolls out to the legendary Perris Raceway, on October 28.
