Team Babbitt’s Monster Energy/Amsoil Kawasaki Leaves Round 1 of Arenacross with the Points Lead
Irvine, Calif. (January 7, 2014) – Two nights of racing kicked off the 2014 AMA Arenacross season from the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., as Kawasaki went undefeated over the weekend. Friday night saw Team Babbitt’s Monster Energy/Amsoil Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers, the three-time defending champion, win both main events making some aggressive moves along the way. On Saturday night it was Bowers teammate Zach Ames who took the first main event win followed by Kawasaki rider Michael McDade taking the second main event win and the overall for the night with a 2-1 score. Ames’ consistency over the two nights of racing allowed him to leave with the points lead and the red plates. Arenacross rookie and Team Green graduate Colt Nichols had a great introduction to the series by finishing within the top-10 both nights and finished as high as fourth in one of the four main events.
