    Another Impressive Win in Greenville Gives Bowers Six In-a-Row
    Tyler Bright Grabs Arenacross Lites Victory

    GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 12, 2011) – The recent dominance of Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLUBE Kawasaki presented by Maxxis rider Tyler Bowers, of Danville, Ky., continued on Saturday night as he raced to his sixth straight AMA Arenacross Series victory from the BI-LO Center. In the Arenacross Lites main event, Jimmy Weinert Racing Honda’s Tyler Bright, of Sumter, S.C., grabbed his first win of the 2011 season.

    As the gates dropped on the Arenacross class main event, TUF Honda’s Jeff Gibson, of Blacklick, Ohio, grabbed the early lead and looked to regain the momentum he had in the early portion of the season. However, Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLUBE Kawasaki’s Chad Johnson, of Rhinelander, Wis., took over the top spot from Gibson after just a handful of laps and looked to gap the field. Behind him, Bowers moved past Gibson as well and set his sights on his teammate. It wasn’t long before Bowers caught Johnson and overtook him for the lead and the eventual win.

    Johnson stayed strong in second, recording his fourth consecutive runner-up finish in a dominant month for the Babbitt’s team. By virtue of his second-place effort, Johnson also moved into a tie for second in the Arenacross class championship with Gibson, who fell to fourth by the conclusion of the main event. Rounding out the podium with his best result of the season was Foremost Insurance/Spinechillers/HondaofFairfield.com’s Zach Ames, of Prospect, Ohio.

    Bowers advantage over Gibson and Johnson in the championship is now at 38 points.

    After a three-week break, the Arenacross Lites Eastern Regional Championship returned to action in Greenville. Series veteran Bright took advantage of the opportunity to compete in front of his hometown crowd and put forth an impressive effort, grabbing his first win of the season. He later moved on to post a commendable 13th-place finish in the Arenacross main event, almost immediately after 18 laps on intense Arenacross Lites action.

    Following Bright on the podium was Foremost Insurance/Spinechillers/HondaofFairfield.com’s Patrick Massie, of Washington Court, Ohio, in second, giving the Spinechillers Racing team a memorable night. Five Star Cycle KTM’s Kenneth Henry, of Ashtabula, Ohio, rounded out the podium in third.

    Massie’s runner-up effort helped increase is lead in the Arenacross Lites Eastern Regional Championship standings to 29 points over Hot Rod MX Racing Honda’s Austin Coon, of Spencer, W.Va.

    The AMA Arenacross Series continues next weekend from the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, beginning at 7 p.m. CT.

    Not bashing on Kenny but the only thing I've ever noticed as being problematic with him are his starts. His lap times are always close within the top 5, so if he can find a way to get out front early every race he's golden for the Podium blocks. Even at OIR this year he was only about a second off Rife but his starts just destroyed him.

    I look forward to reading about a Win in the Star Beacon before the years out...that's the best thing that has come out of ashtabula county since Cara Seymour who got accepted to Juilliard...
