Santa Monica, CA - June 18, 2007 - Ninety degrees and azure skies greeted the competitors at the third round of the NASMOTO SuperMoto Regional Qualifier for the Wheeling Cycle Supply Presents NASMOTO Ohio SuperMoto GP at the famed Circleville Raceway Park in Circleville, Ohio.

The most entertaining and hotly contested battle of the day happened in the ATV Amateur class with the racers running on the knife edge of adhesion. By race time the field was cut in half because of numerous equipment failures as teams attempted to dial-in their ATV racers for the high-speed asphalt sections. Marc Noreuil got his racer set up right and went on to take the win ahead of hard charging John Odenhahl. In the Pro ATV class Zac Willet took the win over Eric Jennings.

The second great battle of the day goes to AMA Racing Sr. Director of Technical Development Kevin Crowther running a Yamaha and competing
with local fast man Mike Jenkins (KTM) in the Amateur +35 Vet class. From the drop of the flag to the checkers the lead was always in hot contention. Jenkins finally took the win by a wheel and the two competitors could be seen shaking hands and giving high-fives after the combat.

AMA SuperMoto Factory Yamaha pro racer, Mark Burkhart, designed the dirt track section that provided a double rhythm section, several table tops and a very fast transition from the dirt to the asphalt. The design allowed the racers to take the conservative line around the jumps or take seconds off their lap times by charging the jumps section.

Local hero, Andrew Hyder, had the SMX Open class well in hand and celebrated with an outstanding wheelie only to find his celebration was a lap early. His mishap opened the door for Dave Arnold of Richmond Hill, Ontario to put his Machine Racing, Troy Lee Design racer on the top of the podium with Hyder in hot pursuit. Bloomington Powersports team has a good day in the SMX 250 class with Paul Allison taking the win over Arnold and teammate Chase Guthrie.

Other items of note include Columbian roadracing class champion, David Gaviria, using his knee dragging style to good advantage and taking the SM1 Open win. Also, Hoosier tire showed up and is looking to make their mark in the ATV Supermoto marketplace.
