We kick off the eastern portion of the Rockstar Triple Crown AX series in Sarnia, Ontario. Unlike the western rounds where the crowd turn out was decent, we saw a sold out arena in Sarnia for Round 4. Well done on the promotion for this event Jetwerx team! It probably helps that it is their home town but here’s hoping this momentum continues for this coming weekend in Barrie.
The track itself was probably a tad more moist than they would have liked. The dirt was nothing like what we saw at Round 1 but it was still quite tacky and it got pretty rutted up. Here’s a look at some of the FXR athletes who raced in Sarnia last weekend.
Team Holeshot member Nolan Booker took 2nd in 65 (10-11) and 3rd in 85 (9-11)
Ayrton Pomeroy claimed top spot in the 65 (10-11) class.
Christian Plasse took 3rd in 65 (10-11) and 4th in 85 (9-11).
