Over the years, whenever our National Series has visited the Sand Del Lee track, we’ve always witnessed great racing in all classes. Well, this past weekend was much of the same as Round 5 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MXTour Series visited this historic track. In the 250 Pro/Am class fans got to see one of their hometown favourites take the overall win. From the moment he arrived at the SDL track Dylan Wright was focused and determined to win in front of his family and friends. After battling from behind in both motos, Wright used a solid 2-2 moto score to take the win over Joey Crown and Shawn Maffenbeier.
In the 450 class, GDR Fox Honda rider Colton Facciotti battled not only his competition, but also some poor health to win the overall. Colton finished second behind Kaven Benoit in the opening 450 moto and then came back and dominated Moto 2 to take his third overall win of the season. He will now carry a seven point lead into Round 6 at his GDR Fox Honda Team’s home track, Gopher Dunes. As he always is, James Lissimore was front and centre at Sand Del Lee and sent us these incredible photos for this week’s Yamaha Motor Canada Behind the Lens.
