GBC Motorsports’ Nick Moser claimed two top five finishes in the Pro-am Production and Pro-am Unlimited classes at round number six of the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championships, while Travis Moore claimed a top ten finish in the Pro production class.
Steel City in Delmont, PA was the hosting facility for this round that saw good weather and good track conditions that allowed GBC Motorsports’ racer to finish well, with Nick Moser leading the way.
Moser was looking good as he charged his way off the start in the first Pro-am Unlimited moto. Moser was in sixth place and charged hard to move into the number three spot by lap three and hold his position all the way to the checkered flag. In moto two, Moser was in fifth off the start and held down his spot until reaching the checkered flag. Moser’s 3-5 finishes gave him fourth overall for the day in the Pro-am Unlimited class.
In the Pro-am Production class, Moser was looking strong again as he claimed a sixth place finish in moto one and finished in fifth in moto two, giving him fifth overall for the day, while Jamen Davidovich took consistent 7-7 finishes for seventh overall.
In the Pro ranks, Travis Moore claimed another top ten finish overall at Steel City, even after a hard hit in moto two. Moore was in mid pack off the start in moto one but worked his way up for a seventh place finish. In the second moto, Moore’s GBC Bomb Squad MX tires hooked up great and allowed Moore to get a good start and move into the number three spot in the first lap. Moore was able to take over second in lap four and was looking solid, but unfortunately he came up short on a jump and fell back. Moore took a hard hit, but kept his composure and continued to race, taking an eighth place finish.
“My GBC tires hooked up great out there and they performed really well. I can’t wait to get to Millville. I did well there last year and I really like that track so I am hoping for a podium finish,” said Moore, who was on the Pro-am Production podium at Spring Creek last year.
Round number seven of the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championships will have the GBC Motorsports racers heading to Spring Creek Motocross in Millville, MN on June 4th – 5th, where they will be racing for the podium.
