“Pala 2 was really good for me,” said Max Ansite, “I missed the last race due to Covid-19 protocols. I was happy to get over that. The team did a great job with the bike, and we put on two solid races together going 6-5 for 6th overall. I’m happy with the performance I’m going to regroup and head into Hangtown firing on all cylinders.”

“Solid day at Pala for the team,” said Team Manager Dustin Pipes. “Max rode great all day and ended with a 5th place moto result. He battled toward the front all day and that was great to see. Brandon took another step in the right direction with his 8th place finish. His suspension set up didn’t translate to this track, so he did well to adapt and put his best foot forward. We’ll come up with a new setting for the final round and come out swinging.”
