San Bernardino, Calif. - June 16, 2011 - The
2011 Yamaha Quad-X Series presented by STI
returns this Saturday, June 18th, for round four
at Speedworld MX in Surprise, AZ. Saturday’s
race marks the mid-point of the 2011 Quad-X
Championship, and will be the first of the
season’s two night races.
Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson has won the first
three rounds of the series, giving him a perfect
score of 75 points in the series standings.
Nelson is looking to extend his points lead as
he attempts to defend his 2010 Pro 450
Production Class title.
After finishing second overall over the past
three rounds, Beau Baron sits only nine points
behind Nelson in the series standings. With the
series nearing the halfway mark, Baron still has
a very realistic chance of winning the 2011
championship if he can find a way to beat
Ethan Thatcher remains third in points with
58, after finishing fifth overall at the
previous round at Cahuilla Creek MX. At round
three, Dirkie Baard and Josh Row battled for
third overall, swapping third and fourth place
moto finishes. Baard’s third in the second moto
earned him the final spot on the overall podium
for the day. With the series well underway,
