Sitting in first place in the MotoVert Pitbike Pro Series, GPS Racing’s Brad Ripple had all the points that he needed to solidify his Championship for the year. The Two Brother’s prepared bike seemed to have all the power necessary to clinch the championship.
Jimmy Nelson definitely wanted to prove that he has all that it takes to run up font in Arenacross. “For his first year on the circuit, Jimmy did an amazing job and showed that he has the speed to run up front” according to Team Manager George Hodkinson.
In the Premier (450) class, Jimmy finished the series in 4’th place posting one event win. In the overall Championship series, Jimmy ended the year in 7th posting two event wins. To close the series on a high note, Nelson jumped out front in the Premier class capturing the $250 MotoSport.com First Lap Dash award. Nelson held-on fighting-off some fierce competition to claim the second position on the podium Saturday night.
