Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac rode his ARC-equipped rig to the top-of-the-box again at the MXish SX at the Daytona Motor Speedway this weekend, narrowing his deficit to KTM Champion Ryan Dungey. Dungey got a horrific start after his training mate Jason Anderson hit the start gate early, causing teammate Marvin Musquin to jump, pushing the gate forward and discombobulating Dungey's way into the first turn.
Meanwhile, Geico Honda's 250 West rider Jeremy Martin rode ailing Ken Roczen's 450 to a holeshot and nearly 1/2 race in the leaders position. He was later passed by an ARC'ing Eli Tomac, who took the win, followed by Martin. Dungey made his way from almost last up to finish fourth, salvaging his points lead in the series.
Tomac runs ARC's soon-to-be-released Pro Brake Clevis, which replaces the stamped-steel connector between your rear brake pedal and the master cylinder with a precision machined titanium fixing bolt in a machined aluminum body that eliminates the play found on stock bikes in this area. He's also been running our 6-way adjustable PowerLever for his front brake since winning the two GP's that came to America last year... Eli is proving ARC products bring more control, and therefore more speed to the track.
Of course, the rest of the top ten riders are on ARC products as well, either stock production folding levers and more, or custom machined levers as in the case of Dungey, Musquin and Anderson.
In the 250's, Pro Circuit phenom Adam Cianciarulo rode ARC Memlon levers to victory, at the track where he first witnessed SuperCross, and only several miles from the town where he grew up. The rest of the riders down to 5th place were all on ARC Levers as well...
