MDK Motorsports’ Nick Wey 4th @ Third Anaheim Supercross

2/7/2007

 

 

CARLSBAD, Calif., (Feb. 6, 2007) – MDK Motorsports-backed Nick Wey blew everybody out of the water in the start of the AMA Supercross class main event, pulling off the line gunfighter style and leading the entire field into the first turn of the third Anaheim (Calif.) round of the 2007 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series.

 

The effort by Wey, coming on the heels of a questionable AMA decision to penalize Wey and the MDK Motorsports team for allegedly using improper fuel (a decision that is being vehemently challenged), was seen as vindication for the he and the entire MDK team.

 

“We needed that,” said Wey of his privateer holeshot effort.

 

Wey let it be known early on Saturday that he’d be challenging for the podium. Posting the fifth-fastest time in practice, Wey cruised through his qualifier (5th) to make the main. At the end of the first lap and sitting in fourth place, Wey would keep factory racer Tim Ferry in sight for the overall final spot on the podium, but wouldn’t be able to make the pass, settling on a well-deserved 4th place overall.

 

“Timmy rode really good tonight,” said Wey. “I was right there with him, but kept making small mistakes every lap.”

 

Wey, who should be in 4th place overall with 80 points is tied for 7th with 60 points due to a controversial AMA sanction over alleged improper fuel.

 

This weekend Wey remains in California for Round Six of the 2007 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, set for Houston’s Reliant Stadium (Feb. 10th). Last year at Houston Wey finished 9th overall.

 

Companies that have Wey’s back on this year’s supercross tours include: MSR,  Scott, Bell Helmets, Oxtar, Etnies, Xyience, Honda, MDK Speed Equipment, , Works Connection, Face Lift Unlimited/FLU Designs, FMF, Motosport.com, ProTaper, RG3, Hinson Clutch Components, Twin Air, Bridgestone, Acerbis, VP Fuels, NewFren Brakes, and Mechanics Wear.
