Suzuki Inside Line- Houston Supercross

Round Two of Monster Energy AMA Supercross headed east to Houston, check out the Suzuki Inside Line of what happened at NRG Stadium!

Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing -The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team made its presence known at the second round of the 2018 AMA Supercross series in Houston, Texas. Weston Peick scored a second consecutive top-five finish, Malcolm Stewart impressed in his first fill-in race for the team, and Justin Hill remains in the 250 West points chase even after two tough rounds that are not indicative of the reigning champ’s capabilities. Injured Phil Nicoletti used grit and determination to ride to a gutsy 12th place finish with bruised and misplaced ribs caused from last weekend’s crash at A1. The team will regroup and bounce back while heading to Anaheim for Round three this Saturday.

H.E.P. Motorsports -The H.E.P. Motorsports team had reason to celebrate in Houston with Suzuki RM-Z450 rider Henry Miller finishing third in the LCQ and earning his career first trip to the main event!  Joining Miller in the main event was fellow teammate Kyle Cunningham who rode to a season best 14thplace.  With improved performances from the previous round, getting two riders in the 450 main event, H.E.P. Motorsports is poised to continue to improve on its results in Anaheim.

Nut Up/LVN100/Suzuki - Nut Up/LVN100/Suzuki team rider Matt Bisceglia had a challenging night in Houston after a steady main-event appearance at Round One. While running in the top ten during 450SX Heat One, just one spot out of a transfer position, Bisceglia sustained a shoulder injury and wasn’t able to return for the LCQ. After a couple days rest, he looks forward to getting back on his Suzuki RM-Z450 this week to prepare for Anaheim 2. Team owner Josh Hansen looks to make his season debut on his all-new RM-Z450 within the next couple of weeks once fully recovered from injury.
