Racing's Alex Gillette Finished 6th in
Gillette started off the weekend with some bad
luck on the gate picks, but this was no match
for his RRR/Hoosier/Motowoz Honda. “On Saturday
I actually got horrible gate positions with 16th
in College and 20th in 450A,” explained Gillette.
Despite the challenging gate picks, Gillette persevered
and came out to finish ninth in 450 A, and sixth
The great finishes on Saturday set Gillette up
with some better gate picks for Sunday’s second
motos. “I got the gates I wanted and I was near
the front of the pack in both classes,” said Gillette.
Gillette improved on his first moto finishes with
a seventh in 450 A, and a fourth in College.

good but I always want better, so I continue to

and hopefully move up in the second half of the
season,” explained Gillette.

good use at the sixth round of the season when
