GBC Motorsports’ Travis Moore claimed a top ten finish in the Pro class at round seven of the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championships, giving him a top ten position in points as well.
Spring Creek Motocross Park was hot and humid for this round and the track conditions got quite rough, but Travis Moore was able to get decent starts and excellent traction with his GBC Bomb Squad MX tires.
In the first moto, Moore was in sixth place off the start and was looking strong. Unfortunately a ground wire came loose on his quad, ending his moto early. “It was disappointing for sure because I was feeling really good out there and I think I could have finished well,” stated Moore, who was determined to redeem himself in the second moto.
As the gate dropped for moto two, Moore was in seventh and soon found himself under attack from Jeremy Lawson. Moore battled hard and worked his way into the number six spot behind Josh Upperman.
“I was gaining on Upperman, but the track was so rough out there. I almost crashed twice in the same moto and that kind of took a lot out of me, but I still held on to finish in sixth, so I was pretty happy,” Moore went on to say. “My GBC Tires hooked up great out there and I was able to get good starts. I am going to be practicing over the break and I am hoping to come back strong in Ohio.”
Fellow GBC Motorsports rider Nick DeNoble finished sixth overall at Spring Creek following a seventh place finish in each moto. DeNoble has reached the podium once this year and sits in seventh place in the Pro ATV standings.
GBC’s Nick Moser also finished with a respectable eighth place in round seven’s Pro-Am Unlimited class. The Pro-Am rider is currently in eighth in the standings of both the Pro-Am Production class as well as the Pro-Am Unlimited class despite suffering DNF’s in both classes.
Round #8 of the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross Championships will head to Sunday Creek MX Park in Millfield, OH on July 2-3.
