Hurtado Bounces Back
ASMA Championship at Arroyo Seco Raceway
Deming, New Mexico, April 6, 2018
Round 3 of the ASMA Championship saw the return to form of David Hurtado
and the emergence of Dan Dickerman as a legitimate contender in the Evan Steel
Performance Formula Arroyo Championship. Dickerman grabbed the holeshot on
his Yamaha R1 with reigning champion Mikey Shreve, Hurtado and Joe Chasser
close behind. Dickerman did his best to make a break and opened up a small lead
in the first lap and a half, but Shreve quickly closed it back on on lap 2, taking
the lead )))))))). Lap 3 saw Shreve try to make a break on his Law Tigers/Pirelli
sponsored Yamaha R1, turning a 1:08.92, his best lap of the race, but Hurtado
was also upping the pace, closing the gap to Dickerman who matched the times
being laid down by Shreve. On lap 4 Shreve began to slow slightly, allowing
Dickerman to get back past and allowing Hurtado to get close enough to make a
move on the brakes at the start of lap 5 going into the Horseshoe. David was on
fire at that point, also going by Dickerman as the pair headed towards the Bus
Stop. On lap 6, with a clear track in front of him, Hurtado set the fastest lap of
the race at 1:08.441 as he attempted to check out at the front, but Dickerman and
Shreve kept in formation and stayed close for a few laps, Dickerman setting his
best lap of 1:08.608 on lap 9.  Shreve began to drop off the pace  on lap 10 as
the heat began to affect his vision. Hurtado continued to pull out small gains each
lap, crossing the line on his Dunlop sponsored Kawasaki ZX10R two seconds
over Dan Dickerman, with Shreve 9 seconds adrift in 3rd. Chasser, a podium
regular had an off day and finished another 10 seconds down in 4th.
In Middleweight action, for the second month in a row it was Robert Roach Jr.
winning both Middleweight Superbike and Middleweight Superstock on his
Yamaha Yzf-R6. Roach is a recent graduate from our Ninja 250 program as well
as occasionally racing a KTM RC390 and so far has gone undefeated in his
ASMA 600 program. Robert will be racing in Yucatán, Mexico at Autódromo
Yucatán  Mérida, Yucatán on May 27th in the CAMPEONATO NACIONAL
ITALIKA RACING series next.
The Ultrallight classes were once again full of great racing as Nic Swensgard and
Roger Heemsbergen faced off in the 300 Superbike race with Swensgard
breaking Robert Roaches old Counter Clockwise Ultralight lap record of 1:18.7
by a full second riding the same Heems Racing Kawasaki Ninja 250, with
Heemsbergen also under the old lap record running a 1:18.0 on his ESP Honda
CBR250. Swensgard took the win by 6 seconds.
In Ultralight Grand Prix, it was once again Mickey Rupe vs Swensgard, with
Rupe using his experience and the power of his Yamaha R3 to hold off the full
race attack of the 17 year old Swensgard from start to finish.
In Formula 500, which is open to the usual ultralight bikes, plus KTM390’s,
Ninja 400’s and the other new, slightly higher capacity bikes, it was expected to
be a showdown between Rupe, Swensgard, and Heemsbergen with Art Johnson
still nursing an injured thumb sustained in a work related injury. Rupe took the
holeshot followed by Johnson and Swensgard, with Tim Byma 3rd and
Heemsbergen 4th as they exited the first turn. Swensgard passed Johnson in
Yucca, and Byma and Heemsbergen splitting Johnson on the brakes headed into
Bus Stop. Byma had the tight inside line so he had to give way to Heemsbergen
and the top 3 looked like the 3 way battle was going to commence. Swensgard
dove inside of Rupe in 111R and took the lead and opened a small gap in the
Esses before the long back straight, and Heemsbergen was able to get his CBR
tucked in tight behind the R3 of Rupe to draft all the way to the Carousel.
Suddenly Rupe had a slight lockup of his front tire, causing his bike to wiggle
violently, then standing up and he rode off the track at a high rate of speed before
low siding a few hundred feet out in the desert unhurt. Heemsbergen set after
Swensgard, setting a new lap record of 1:17.65 and taking the lead with a pass
going into the Bus Stop on lap 2. Swensgard retaliated by going around the
outside of the carousel on the brakes on lap 3 and holding it until lap 6 when he
went outside of a lapped rider and Heemsbergen went underneath them both.
Swensgard retook the lap record again on lap 7 going 1:17.642, but began to slide
the rear and Heemsbergen took the win by just over half a second.
David Hurtado: “It was hot and greasy out there, but I did what I needed to do. I
want to thank Dunlop, ESP, Speedcell, Cycle Gear Mesa, Az Motorcycle
Dan Dickerman: “I enjoyed mixing it up with Mikey, and wished I had a little
more to give Hurtado a run, but I'm super happy with a second place. That's my
best Formula finish to date!”
Mikey Shreve: “On lap 3 I started seeing spots, I’m not used to this heat because
I live high in the mountains in Ruidoso. I want to thank Law Tigers, Pirelli Tires,
Bobby J’s Yamaha, CT Racing, Evan Steel Performance, and my dad who is
always helping me.”
