2016 Salinas AX | Race Highlights

Presented by Factory Effex

arenacross.com

AMSOIL Arenacross hosted its second round of the Race to the Championship on Sunday afternoon with its first ever race at an open-air venue, Salinas Sports Complex on California’s central coast. A weekend of rain made Mother Nature a focal point as wet track conditions produced some of the most challenging conditions in the history of the sport, resulting in intense competition for the win. When all was said and done, it was TiLUBE/TUF Racing Honda’s Ben Lamay who emerged with his first overall win thanks to a tiebreaker over Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Chris Blose, the championship leader. Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Gavin Faith finished third, but let a win slip away after crashing out of the lead in the final Main Event. Blose maintained control of the lead in the Race to the Championship standings and now has a slim three-point lead over Faith heading into the third of five rounds in the Race to the Championship next weekend in Tacoma, Washington.
