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



The New Berlin Unadilla track is known for its big jumps, fast straights and mixture of rock-loomy dirt. Headed into this race we were excited to test out the power provided by Moto-Xperts. In the previous race the machine proved it had what it would take to perform.

Casey practiced on Sat and was dialing in his JB Racing/Fox suspension and felt he finally had the machine headed in the right direction. His comfort level on the new suspension looks promising and we are so far pleased with the performance.

On Saturday Casey made a strong showing in Pro Am Production and set himself up for a good run by placing 5th in heat one and providing a 1:44.836 fast lap time. Things appeared to be heading the right direction, however while sitting in staging for the main event Casey’s bike failed to start and the day was over. After spending a couple hours trouble shooting no clear reason for start-failure was available. Assuming the weekend was over Casey made calls to his family and others explaining his weekend was done.

However on Sunday morning with a single kick the machine fired right up. Casey was able to practice and run in heat 1 of Pro Am Production. Once again Casey made a solid showing and walked away in a 5th place qualifying position. The main event came and we loaded Casey into the gate selecting the same starting spot that was giving him consistent and safe first turn positions. As the 2 min card went up Casey kicked his machine and once again it refused to start. After exhausting time another DNS was all that was available.

After some assistance from other people and some research the CDI box is looking very suspect for this issue and is already in the process of being changed to rule it out. As always we look for a stronger next race.

Carrie Auchter practiced locally this weekend after getting a green light from her doctor and was feeling pretty good after a few hours of practice.
