ARC-equipped riders once again dominated all aspects of the main events and standings at the Seattle round of the 2017 SX Series.
Rockstar Husky’s Jason Anderson holeshotted the 450’s using his ARC-built levers, followed by KTM’s Musquin with the same, and fellow ARC riders Millsaps and Webb. Mayhem resulted behind, with a tuff block getting clipped and knocking down Bogle, taking out series champ KTM’s Ryan Dungey. ARC star and runner up so far in the series Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac got a bad start and moved up to 10th, before charging towards the front with his ARC PowerLevers (6-way adjustable ratios).
Behind them, Dungey was moving up from the back on his ARC-equipped KTM. At the end, Musquin pulled off the win, followed by fellow ARC riders Tomac, Anderson, Dungey and Millsaps. Tomac is now tied in points with Dungey, and will run the red plate at the next race in two weeks in Salt Lake City.
In the 250’s, it was another ARC holeshot with Geico-Honda’s Jimmy DeCotis getting out front, only to have the race red-flagged. Upon the restart, Martin Davalos got out on his Husky, while behind him TLD-KTM’s Shane McElrath, Decotis, Pro-Cicuit Kawasaki’s Justin Hill and Yamaha’s Aaron Plessinger ARCing behind him for position. In the end, Plessinger got his first win of the season, followed by Hill, Oldenburg, Davalos and McElrath.
Next up is a week-long break, with the action starting up again the following weekend in Salt Lake City. ARC ON!
