David Hurtado took his first Formula Arroyo by Evan Steel Performance race
win at round 4 of the Arroyo Seco Motorcyclist Association Championship series. Sun
City Cab Polesitter and 2010 ASMA #1 plate holderThibault Few rode Joe Campbell's
2013 Fast by Few ZX10R to the early lead, but Marios Burgos got a drive out of the
kink that saw the 2011 #1 plateholder pass Few down the front straight to lead the
first lap. Hurtado meanwhile got one of the best starts of his career and finished the
first lap in 3rd place.
Burgos had his head down and rode his Evan Steel Performance prepared
machine to a one second lead over Few by lap 2, and extended it to two seconds by
lap 3 when Few pulled out with brake problems. Hurtado inherited 2nd place but was
unable to make up ground on on the race leader. Unfortunately for Burgos, the main
fuse in his motorcycle fell out and he rolled to a stop in the Esses.
Only 3 seconds off the leader on the beginning of lap 9, Hurtado took over the
lead and had a 9 second gap over Tabor Rossi on his new 2013 ZX636 Kawasaki. The
final spot on the podium was another first, Mickey Rupe, one year after losing his
brakes made his way to the final step of the podium.
Formula Amateur by Speedcell was also action packed, as Jeff Ekstrom
absolutely checked out from the grid and had a 4 second gap over Joe Janiga by the
start of lap 4. Unfortunately, Janiga had one of the strangest crashes ever, grinding
something on the asphault entering the Yucca turn. Joe then lost the front, fell off the
back of the bike, then, somehow, ended up getting tangled up between the rear tire and
the subframe of his bike, which then highsided. Joe was mostly unhurt, but his bike
was in the middle of the turn and the race was red flagged.
In the restart, Ekstrom once again led, but was passed momentarily by El Paso's
Raul Carillo in the Carousel. Jeff got the hint and upped his pace and sped away. Joe
Janiga made the restart and although he started timid, made his way back to second
place by the checkers followed by Carillo.
Alamogordo's Greg Talbot set a new Lightweight lap record of 1:13.2 during the
Formula 40 race while chasing the NT650 of Roger Heemsbergen. The time was 1.4
seconds faster than the Flaming one had ever done before. Ken Murray also dropped
.6 off his fastest ever CCW lap with a 1:14.3 in the same race.
