San Francisco Supercross: Jake Weimer
Takes Fourth Podium In Four Races
San Francisco, CA: As fans amped up for Round 4 of the 2010 Supercross series, the Monster Energy/Pro-Circuit/Kawasaki Lites team rolled into AT&T park as the dominant force in AMA Supercross racing. Jake Weimer (#12) entered the race with three consecutive wins, and won his Round 4 heat race handily. In the night’s other Lites heat race, Jake’s teammate Josh Hansen (#100) was also fast, and gave up only one position to take second place behind the hard-charging Trey Canard.
As the gate dropped on the Lites Main Event, Canard sprinted to the front with the holeshot, with Jake Weimer close behind. Hansen also got an excellent start, but was pushed off the first turn and exited the race course as the 20-rider field motored past. Another rider might have quit right there, but Hansen never quits—he tore into the track like he was lining up for the win! Meanwhile, Jake Weimer and his KX™250F put a gap on the field as he chased leader Trey Canard. Weimer steadily improved his lap times despite a bent shift lever, but could not catch Canard before the checkers. A true professional, Weimer gave full credit to Canard for a well-ridden race. “He was the better rider tonight,” said Wiemer. “I hate losing and I lost tonight, but I have the points lead and am thankful for everyone that has helped me get here,” said Weimer. Josh Hansen missed the podium, but had an epic ride as he rocketed from the back of the field to finish in a very respectable seventh place, and maintained his position in series points.
As the Supercross series heads for San Diego, Jake Weimer remains the Lites points leader with 97 points. Traxxas congratulates Jake Weimer and Josh Hansen on their excellent performances in San Francisco. Next stop, Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego!
