Fire Power Honda will be extremely busy this weekend, as the professional team tackle round three of the 2023 AMA Supercross series and the amateur athletes earn their stripes in the confines of arenacross. The winter months are a distant memory now – the race season is well underway.
With the postponement of Oakland, Dean Wilson used his free weekend to get accustomed to the CRF450R and build on everything that was learned at Anaheim 1. Wilson is currently fourteenth in the premier-class standings and eager to make an impression on the top ten when gates drop in San Diego on Saturday night. Much like his experienced teammate, Wilson Todd made good use of his free weekend and recovered from his fall at round one. Todd is striving to show the same raw pace that he did in his AMA Supercross debut before being taken out.
Elsewhere, Gage Linville and Levi Cambell are competing in another round of AMA Arenacross in Oklahoma. Competing in select rounds with the sole goal of gaining useful expierence that will prepare them to make the leap into the professional scene, both riders will strive to leave with momentum on their side. The Fire Power Honda amateur team has been constructed to nurture rising talent from MTF.
Martin Davalos (Fire Power Honda Team Manager): “It is going to be an extremely busy weekend of on-track action, but I am so excited to see how our athletes progress as they strive to reach personal goals. We have done so much work since Anaheim 1, which feels like a lifetime ago, so it will be brilliant to reap the benefits of that when gates drop on Saturday night.”
