With the much anticipated kick-off of East Coast Lites racing, we thought it would be best to grab a couple of Title Contenders and have a talk with them after the excitement and anticipation of Houston SX.
First up, we’ll get Matt Lemoine on the line and find out just what it took to put his MotoExtreme Kawasaki right into the Top10 this weekend with a 9th OA, showing he has the speed he needs to get it done in the upcoming rounds. We haven’t talked to Matt since last year when he was doing battle in the tough West Coast Lites Series, so tonight we’ll get our chance to have Matt take us through his off season journey right up to the Houston Main Event checkered flag.
Next we’ll get down to business with DNA Shred Stix rider Ryan Sipes. Ryan was surrounded by hype on Saturday after he set the fastest lap in qualifying practice sessions at 49:58, setting him up as an odds on favorite to take a piece of the podium in Houston. Sipes had his sights clearly locked on 3rd, but a connection with Wharton late in the race left Sipes on the ground barely managing to salvage 4th in the East Coast Lites Series Opener. With obvious speed, and a familiar feeling Yamaha under his rump, we’re sure to see Ryan making another run at the podium in the coming rounds.
As usual, we’ll also be doing some Fantasy Bench Racing and comparing our results from the MXTalkRadio Friends division over at MotoXDream. Houston wasn’t nice to some team managers, including the Hosts of this show, but in stark contrast it was VERY nice to others. We’ll break down what held up and what collapsed, as well as making our now infamous prank call to our weekly winner from Houston.
