Carlsbad, CA (March 12, 2012) – Round 10 of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross series took place at the Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night. The track in Daytona is always a tough one, but the rain on Saturday made it even more of a challenge for the riders. Josh Hansen was the only racer representing the Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Supercross team this weekend.
Although Josh Hansen (#100) was calm and confident going into the day in Daytona, it didn't exactly go as he had hoped. After finishing out of qualifying position in the heat race, Hansen got a good initial start in the last chance qualifier before colliding with another rider in the second corner. Their bikes were stuck together long enough for the field to get away and Hansen was forced out of the race. He failed to qualify for the main event for the first time this season.
The Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Supercross team has faced some unfortunate setbacks this season, with injuries to Josh Hill, Ivan Tedesco, and Kyle Partridge. As a result of these injuries, the team has decided to hire a fill-in rider, #36 Kyle Regal, for the remaining rounds of Supercross effective this weekend in Indianapolis. The team feels confident that with Hansen and Regal healthy and ready for competition, and with Hill and Tedesco returning in the next few weeks, the team will be stronger than ever and will continue to deliver great results.
After 10 rounds of Supercross action, Hansen sits in 12th place in the overall standings.
The next AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series race will be held this Saturday, March 17th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
