Mitch Reynolds Racing Update - ATVA EDT - Tri-City





Greenbriar, AR -- Round #5 of the Atva Extreme Dirt Track Nationals got underway this past weekend at Tri City Speedway in Pennsylvania. As with every round so far this year rain played a big part in the weekend. Thursday evening practice was cancelled due to heavy rains pushing practice, qualifying and racing to Friday. The Herrick crew did a spectacular job prepping the track for the rain and with a little work in the morning the track was ready for racing and held up great all day.

Mitch came into the weekend eager to get back on his quad and put the last last few weeks behind him. After the Unadilla round of the MX nationals Mitch was injured in a practice crash leaving him unable to mount a serious charge at round #4 of the EDT series "it was extremely frustrating not to be able to race at Danville, that was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. Just rolling the track for points is something i never want to do again" Reynolds said.

Two weeks prior to this event Mitch re-injured his hip and shoulder at the Muddy Creek MX national and spent very little time on his quad leading up to Fridays race.

As darkness fell over the Tri Cities Speedway the Pro's hit the track for some of the closest racing this year. Mitch would finish 3rd in his Pro heat and 1st in the Pro Am Lites heat race "the track was fast and i was a bit rusty, i haven't been able to ride much lately because of some injuries but i really liked the track layout. I also think it was great that Tim and Daryl came out to race with us and Sage Baker
also ran his first TT this weekend"

When it came time for the mains the air was thick with anticipation. The top pro's were all running comparable times and the track was now perfect for racing. Mitch was struggling with his starts but felt good about the rest of the track and finished with 3rd in both the Pro class and Pro-Am Lites. "I'm happy with my results, it's been a tough year but i think it's coming around"
