Bad Boy Jake Marsack Masters The Mud AgainTuesday, March 11, 2008 | 10:36 AM
In what was one of the muddiest, wildest, and most brutal supercross races ever, Team Bad Boy rider Jake Marsack # 66 showed the competition and the fans why he's now considered 'master of the mud'. In a rain-shortened 12-lap main event at the Daytona International Speedway on March 7, 2008, Marsack had a brilliant ride for his first AMA Supercross class podium of his career, finishing an impressive third overall. Earlier this year in similar conditions at San Francisco's AT&T Park, Marsack finished fourth overall.
Marsack, who finished third in heat # 2 to qualify for the main event, was ecstatic after his third place finish in the main event. "I was up on the podium covered in mud from head to toe, and it felt great. The hard work is really starting to pay off. Special thanks to my Dad Jim, to Bad Boy Power Drink and to all my sponsors. "
Team Pirelli, one of Marsack's sponsors, was overjoyed with Jake's third place finish in the muddy main at Daytona. It was the best finish on record in an AMA Supercross event for a Pirelli backed rider.
The next round of the AMA Supercross Series is in the HHH Metrodome in Minneapolis, MN on March 15th.
