Davalos Charges Through the Pack at
San Diego Supercross
Traxxas' Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki riders Martin Davalos and Tyla Rattray battled it out at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium this past Saturday for the sixth round of the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross series. San Diego was the last stop for Davalos, Rattray, and the rest of the 250SX West riders before embarking on an eight-race hiatus
Davalos started the night off strong by claiming an early victory in his heat race. He got a great start in the 250SX West Main Event, but was forced to the very back of the pack after an incident early in the race. He remounted, charged through the pack, and put on a show as he navigated from last place to ninth. He is currently sixth overall in 250SX West point standings – only 13 points out of the top-three.
Teammate Tyla Rattray kept it steady all night as he moved his way through the field on the tight San Diego track. After a decent start in the 250SX West Main Event, he crossed the finish line in eighth place and moved up to 11th overall in 250SX West point standings.
As always, Traxxas brought its exciting radio controlled stunt demonstrations to wow the fans in the pit party AND on the Oakland track’s Monster Triple. The Traxxas E-Revo Brushless Edition was easily clearing the big double and was nearly able to land the triple! Fans got to interact with the pro RC drivers and the Traxxas Girls in the Pit Party. And two lucky fans won Traxxas Slash radio controlled short course truck to take home with them!
Davalos, Rattray, and the rest of the 250SX West riders will now go on an eight-race break while the 250SX East riders get their 2013 season underway. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson, Justin Hill, and Darryn Durham will make their first appearances this Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Tex.
