AMSOIL Arenacross reached the halfway point of the Race to the Championship on Saturday, April 16, from the Tacoma Dome in the picturesque Pacific Northwest. It was a thrilling and intense pair of Arenacross Class Main Events and in the end, Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Gavin Faith emerged with his first overall victory of the playoff while his teammate and main championship rival Chris Blose stumbled. After winning the first Main Event, Blose crashed while running third in the second Main Event and was forced to battle his way back from the tail end of the field. Faith ended the night with a pair of podium finishes to place him atop the overall standings ahead of Team Babbitt’s/Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki’s Jacob Hayes in second and TiLUBE/TUF Racing Honda’s Ben Lamay in third. Blose soldiered home to a seventh-place result in the second Main Event to ultimately finish fifth overall. As a result, Blose’s three-point lead in the Race to the Championship was erased and he now sits knotted in a tie atop the standings with Faith with three nights of racing remaining.
