Nick Wey Battles Through Anaheim #3

2/17/2010

 

 

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Nick Wey earned his third straight top-10 finish with the team at Anaheim 3.

 

Best Race

Though Wey didn’t get the finish he was looking for, he felt he rode his best race of the season finishing 10th. On the start, Wey stalled his bike just after the first turn in Anaheim and had to work his way up from last place. Over the 20 laps he slowly worked his way up to 10th on a mostly one-lined track that made it difficult to pass.

“I didn’t get a good start,” said Wey. “I even made a mistake and stalled the bike on the first lap and was last. Even though I finished tenth, I feel like this was my best race. Once I got going I started making some good passes and I moved up through the field. I just need to take last week’s start, combine it with how I rode tonight and it would be awesome.”

 

Green Goes Pink

With the third Anaheim event slated to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer, the Monster Energy Kawasaki team used a special One Industries graphic’s package, changing most of the green elements in the graphics to pink. Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. also joined in the fundraising by hosting a 24-hour Moto Marathon for the Cure, training 75 new dirt bike riders and raising $2,500 for the Susan G. Komen For the Cure®.

 

Faux Home

With the supercross season moving East, Wey is looking forward to his home race. The Dewitt, Michigan native will have lots of family and friends watching next weekend in Indianapolis and he is hoping to put on a show for them.

“I’m looking forward to next weekend,” said Wey. “Indy is as close as we come to my hometown, so the Michigan Mafia will be coming out in droves along with the Mandingo Mafia because it’s their home race too. I’m looking to step my game up and get a good finish for them.”
