Unbound Energy/MDK Motorsports’ Nick Wey Rolls on After Having Put Up Season-Best Numbers @ Millvill

8/20/2005

 

 

From reconstructive ACL surgery in March to top ten in overall 250 class point standings by August, Wey continues to impress and inspire at series heads to Broome-Tioga Sports Center

 

CARLSBAD, Calif., (Aug. 18, 2005) – The modern day leader of the legendary “Michigan Mafia,” Unbound Energy/MDK Motorsports’ Nick Wey put up his best numbers of the season this past weekend at Millville, going 5-5 for fifth overall while strengthening his top ten position in the overall 250 class standings of the 2005 AMA Motocross Championship, presented by FMF.

 

The fan-favorite Wey, who’d won at Millville in ’99, closed the first moto in spectacular fashion with a blitzing downhill airborne pass over factory Honda racer Ernesto Fonseca. The two friendly rivals had battled for several laps before Wey put the “Whooaa!” pass on Fonseca late in the moto to take 5th place (over Fonseca’s 6th).

 

“Yeah, it got to a point where I had to do something like that to get by Ernie (Fonseca),” said Wey. “It was a bit risky, but highly calculated. The end result must have looked pretty cool to the fans because every time I came off that hill in the second moto they’d be going wild.”

 

Wey’s efforts now give him a 58-point lead over Ryan Clark for ninth place overall. “There’s no doubt I’d be even higher in the standings if I didn’t miss the first two races,” said Wey. “I’m 20 points behind Byrner (Kawasaki factory rider Michael Byrne) for 8th overall, so I’ll work to catch him. Beyond that there’s not much I can do with three races left outside work to keep up the consistent results I’ve had since Southwick.”

 

Last year at Binghamton’s Broome-Tioga Sports Center Wey finished 8th overall, rallying from a 9th place finish in the first moto to score a 6th place finish in the second moto.

 

“Binghamton’s a difficult track if you get behind early,” said Wey. “I need to come out of the start in the top 5-7 places in order to finish highly. If not, and I’m forced to play catch up, it’s going to be tough to duplicate my finish at Millville.”
