Nex Trax Arenacross Series Weekend Number Two

The team celebrates a successfull weekend.

Well, another weekend is in the books as the team was back in Chiliwack for Rounds 3 and 4 of the Nex-Trax Canadian Arenacross Series. Things went pretty well last weekend at the opening round but this weekend was even better. Teddy won every main event, though he was later docked 5 positions in Friday's Lites main which was unfortunate. Still he swept the rest and proved he was the fastest rider on the track.

Brock had a breakthrough weekend. He's long had the speed to run with the front runners but lacked the confidence to do it. Well that changed this weekend when he was all over Kyle Beaton in the first heat race and then won his Open qualifier. He backed that up with a second in Friday's Open main behind his teammate Maier. Brock still made a few mistakes that held him back from some more top positions but it's great to see his progress.

Kris also looked a lot better this weekend. With another weekend of racing under his belt you could see him getting more comfortable on his new Kawasaki. He even ended up on the podium on Friday when he got third in the Lites Main event(and was bumped to second with Teddy's penalty). Kris is so talented, you know that he'll be going even faster when the series resumes in January.

Here's a few photos from the weekend. The team now takes a break for a month before the series resumes in January.
