POST RACE REPORT FROM BALLANCE MOTOX ATVA GNC
Casey Martin and Carrie Auchter Results



Due to another engine failure early in the week Casey was once again riding a practice bike. During the Pro Am Unlimited qualifying heat Casey was running behind lap traffic and was pushed into the LCQ. Things were looking up during the LCQ when he came from mid pack to take over the third spot and get into the main event. Despite an in air collision with another rider Casey was able to hold on and finish strong. In the final moto Casey was once again underpowered, he was third out of the gate but was left towards mid pack by the first turn. After that he picked off riders until he was holding the sixth place spot. On the final lap his engine let loose and the weekend was over. Casey’s only statement was “It’s frustrating. The bike felt good, it simply couldn’t handle the demand I was putting on it. Hopefully by the next race I’ll be back on a race bike and salvage a tough season”.

Carrie got an overall 5th in the Women’s class. After missing practice on Friday Carrie continued to pick up speed and finish with better lap times each time around picking off riders where possible. “The track was great! I had a heavy vibration in the bars from the engine for some reason but the Precision dampener helped keep my bars straight when my arms got tired.” remarked Carrie after pulling off the track from moto 2.

We are also pleased to announce two new sponsors. In light of some parts supply issues and engine reliability problems effective immediately we have teamed up with JB Racing (www.jbatvracing.com) and Moto-Xperts (www.moto-xperts.com). As a team we feel like this will help put us and all of our current sponsors in a better position to win on race day.

ECS Racing and both riders want to thank the following sponsors, without them this team would not be a possibility and each sponsor has went above and beyond to help: Cardio Stack Racing, Exposed Clothing, Moto-Xperts, Casey Cycles, JB Racing, GBC Motorsports, Honda of Rockford, RC Motorsports, HMF Engineering, Rath Racing, Klotz Lubricants, Cometic Gaskets, Precision Racing Products, PowerMadd, Fox Racing Shox, Spider Grips, Fullbore Racing, Pro-Taper, RPM, Ogio.

ECS Racing is the sister team to Cardio Stack Racing from the XC world. Exposed Clothing, a subsidiary of ATV Exposed Magazine has formed a joint partnership with Cardio Stack Racing for MX in the 2008 season. The new team will be listed as ‘ECS

Racing’ and will be running under the Cardio Stack Racing colors of orange and black  and act as the sister team to the already well-known XC team.
