ECS Racing

POST RACE REPORT FROM HIGH POINT ATVA GNC
Casey Martin and Carrie Auchter Results




Going into the Mount Morris, PA round we were excited that Casey Martin finally had a motor to race. Toby from Moto-Xperts got us the motor back quick after parts arrived from Honda and it was broke in on Thursday evening into Friday morning then raced on Saturday. As always we ran with Klotz race fuel for consistent power. Casey was also running a JB Racing front end and swingarm with linkage for the first time during this event. After some fine tuning and practice he was comfortable enough to run motos. We will finish tuning over the next few weeks.

ProAm Unlimited - 37 Riders

Casey come out of the gate solid around mid pack. In turn one all but three guys were bunched up in a mess. Casey ended up coming out in 10th but picked off two more guys to finish with an 8th. During the LCQ has pulled a solid 2nd place start and held it till the finish. In Moto2 there was a wreck in turn two that pushed Casey back pretty far.

Then on the back rhythm stretch he got into a tussle with another rider and ended up off the track. He got back into the race and finished the race with a severely bent tie- rod this landed him a 12th place spot. His finish class position was 11th. After two motor related DNFs Casey is back in the hunt and sitting in 18th with points.

ProAm Production - 38 Riders

Moto1 of the Production class made the weekend worthwhile. Casey was getting used to the new bike and it proved it had enough power to be a contender. Casey jumped out of the gate and was in a two wide split for 2nd on the holeshot. He held the inside on a downhill sweeper and had to brake a little more and took the third place spot. He held 3rd for five of the eight laps and faded. Lack of seat time due to no bike took its toll during the extended Production class and two minute laps. This pushed him into the LCQ where a wreck in turn two would cost him three spots not making it possible to qualify for the main. With three previous DNFs Casey is sitting in 26th with points.

Overall we are very happy with the weekend! Casey made a solid showing, his bike is finally coming together and his spirit is strong. The new motor runs good and we are now preparing to show a solid season.

Carrie Auchter is still having some back issues and sat this round out to complete a full recovery.
