Sioux Falls was a tight and technical track. This did not disappoint the great number of fans that were in the stands. For being a first year venue, it really pulled off a great weekend of racing.
Travis Kern went 6-2 in his rounds on Friday. A great start found Travis Kern up front, and he was able to hold the 2nd place finish on the box! We are thrilled for the way Travis continues to find his way to the podium. Saturday brought out the LCQ for Travis. Starting in the 13th position for the start of the final, Travis worked his way up to a 6th place finish. This was important, as the points race is close. Consistency is really paying off for Travis, and he left the weekend in 2nd place for pro lite points.
Cole Cottew has been finding some better qualifying rounds but had some tough breaks during the finals. Cole went 3-5 in his rounds on Friday. He was running midpack at the start of the final, but a mechanical issue left Cole watching the remainder of the final from the infield.
Saturday Cole went 3-6 in his rounds, and an off in the corner had him finishing in 12th. Cole is continuing to make gains, and we can’t wait to see what the next weekend will bring for him.
