As the riders gathered in Sarnia for Round 4 of the 2018 Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series, all were excited to begin their eastern swing. After three very challenging races out west, everyone was ready for the gate to drop inside the tight confines of the Progressive Auto Sales Centre. When all was said and done, the packed house was treated to some intense battles in both the pro classes, as well as the amateur all-star classes.
Kawasaki rider Shawn Maffenbeier was the big winner in the 250 class as he dominated the main event. Behind him, Marco Cannella and Tanner Ward had to battle hard from the back of the pack to eventually finish up in second and third. In the 450 class, it was hometown boy Cole Thompson who took the early lead and never looked back. As Matt Goerke, Tyler Medaglia and Colton Facciotti battled for second, Thompson rode away to what appeared to be a stress-free victory. It was a great night of racing in Sarnia and James Lissimore was there to capture it all for this week’s Atlas Brace Behind the Lens.
