H&M Motosports' David Haagsma (Yamaha Quad X, Rnd #4)

Bakersfield, Ca:  6/27/11- H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma continued his ways at last weekends Yamaha Quad X race, where he took an impressive 3rd place finish and captured another Pro Holeshot award following last rounds’ WORCS race in Idaho.

In the first moto, Haagsma would have a poor gate pick due to points in the Yamaha Quad X series, but after two laps in, Davi would soon work his way up to the front pack and battle the entire race to finish a solid 4th in Moto one.

After a 4th place in moto 1, Haagsma would get a solid gate choice for the second moto. Davi pulled holeshot and would lead the Pros into the first turn, capturing his second holeshot in the last two consecutive races. Along with the lead in the Pro class, Davi would pull more confidence in this highly competitive field.  Haagsma led the entire race with 2-3 laps to go where he would make a small mistake and let series leader Dustin Nelson by. Haagsma stayed focused and finished second, giving him a 4-2 on the weekend for a 3rd O/A and his first ever Pro podium in both off-road and his only second Pro MX race.

“I had a poor start in Moto 1 as they gate you from your series results and this being my 2nd Quadcross event this year, I had no choice but to pick late on my gate choice. Second moto was much better, I had 4th pick, got a great start and led them into the first turn and most of the race. It felt good to lead those guys for awhile and reassure myself I can run their pace.  I made a small mistake late in the race which allowed Nelson to get around, but I tailed him and finished up with a strong 2nd. I enjoy mixing it up a bit with MX and Off-road and I’m really looking forward to the WORCS Washington event because I feel like I do well in the trees and those conditions. ” David Haagsma.

Our bike was good this weekend, we had a great set-up and our team did awesome”, said Allan McCostlin of H&M Motorsports. Jay Gobel of Elka dialed us in a few weeks back with the new Stage 5 shocks & Curtis Sparks built us a rocket in this new MX engine. We’ll head down to Glen Helen in July for Rnd #5 of the Yamaha Quad X series then take a break and get ready for Washington in a couple of months.”

Haagsma will head into summer break before returning to the WORCS series, Aug. 21st  for round #6 at the famous Washougal facility just outside of Portland, OR in Washougal, Wa.  Haagsma currently sits 5th in points, just 5 shy of DWT/Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson.
