Rain, Mud and etc. Slows Down Wey at Daytona

3/9/2008

 

 

Daytona Beach, FL - The highly anticipated Daytona Supercross provided fans the action-packed racing they’ve come to expect from this one-of-a-kind sandy, outdoor style based track. The MDK KTM riders were on hand to contribute to the nights exciting action.

 

Although riders practiced on a dry course all would change by 2:00pm in the afternoon when rain poured down causing a cancellation of second practice and evoking an earlier start to the evening.

 
MDK KTM Factory Team rider, Nick Wey, was up next in Supercross class Heat #1. He began near the end of the pack after getting caught behind a few riders having trouble in the first mud-packed turn. He quickly charged up and was able to finish 9th by the end of the heat to transfer to the main.

As the rain poured down the gate dropped a final time as the Supercross main event took off. Wey was near last on the start and by the end of lap 1 had moved himself into the top fifteen. Wey continued to charge forward lap by lap of the 12 lap main event. He eventually moved into 10th and was gaining ground on a few riders ahead when too much water got sucked in the airbox and caused his bike to hydro-lock. This occurred on lap 10 causing him to DNF with two laps to go. Despite his mechanical problems due to the horrendous track conditions, including mud puddles deep enough to cover half the bike, Wey finished 16th for the night and remains 9th in overall points.

Next Event: Minneapolis Supercross, Saturday March 15, 2008
