Motosports Park Delivers Moto Perfection!
Byron, Illinois – April 2
2017 Nuke Series Opener
The 2017 Barone Spinal Care Nuclear Series kicked off in grand fashion during the first weekend of April. While Motosports Park is known for presenting some of the best track prep anywhere, today was even better yet. Rain much of the week had many asking if there would even be a race. Aaron Vincer’s answer was “YES, it was going to be nice out on Saturday… the track would be good to go”. After delaying Saturday’s open riding a bit, riders took to a still pretty wet and sloppy track. The drainage system had done it’s work well considering all the earlier rain. Sunday morning practice saw bikes coming off the track with very little mud under the fenders. The track was already near perfect and it just kept getting better.
Sixty degrees, a little overcast – it was just right for a fantastic opener to the 2017 racing at Motosports Park. The track formed deep lines – awesome traction in the corners and a lot of close racing. It isn’t often you get soil requiring no early morning scraping and then no watering all day… the kind that can be tilled up at half time and be picture perfect. You know, the soft stuff you dream of ripping up. This was one of those special days.
A light drizzle arrived as the last few motos ran off… so mother nature did her part in kicking off the season by letting us get in an awesome day. Aaron Vincer predicated his team would deliver a great track and exciting racing, and they did just that. If you missed the opener, make sure to hit as many of the events as possible this season… the racing will keep getting better and better, and you’ll always be given a 100% effort by the Motosports Park team.
