Team Ti Lube Dominates Arenacross in their Own BackyardTuesday, January 8, 2008 | 6:24 AM
Team Ti Lube’s Teddy Maier wins Saturday night’s main event in Kansas City-the whole team scores several podiums throughout the weekend
In Grand Rapids Teddy Maier finished second on Friday night right behind Brock Sellards. The 25 lap main event seemed like it wasn’t long enough for Teddy as he gradually made ground on the Kawasaki rider that won the race. “I could see I was making up time here and there on Brock. I just didn’t get close enough to take the lead from him.” Teddy said about his second place finish.
After the main event in Grand Rapids, the entire team made the ten- hour journey to Kansas City. “As soon as I saw the schedule I knew we wanted to race in Kansas City, Team Manager, Tony Wenck said about racing the one night event. “It’s only a couple hours from where the team is based and we wanted to be in front of our home town crowd. We basically just went home to race.”
Kansas City was well worth the trip as the Ti Lube Team enjoyed great finishes. Colt Humphrey continued to pull almost every holeshot he lined up for with his Moto XXX Performance Tuned Honda CRF 250R.
In the Arenacross Lites class, Kurt McCabe edged out his teammate Colt Humphrey on the last lap to finish 3rd. Colt finished 4th, his best finish so far this year.
In the premier Arenacross Class Teddy Maier quickly passed Nathan Skaggs for the lead and ran away with the win. In fact he lapped up to 4th place by the time the checkered flag dropped. This places Teddy 4th in points as they head to Baltimore. Kurt McCabe charged his way through the pack to finish 3rd, his best finish in that class.
The next event for Ti Lube Racing is in Baltimore at the 1st Mariner Arena on January 11 and 12.
