Korie Richmond Scores Second Victory at High Point MX
Kyler Lenz Motorsports / Amped Apparel ATV MX Race Report

Deforest, WI (5/23/2018) – Kyler Lenz Motorsports/Amped Apparel Honda rider Korie Richmond won the Open B class race during the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship race at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, PA. Pro rider Sam Rowe finished 10th overall. Nick Moser was involved in a crash in the first 25+ moto and sat out the second race, but still holds a commanding lead in the points chase.

Richmond, who also finished second overall in Production B, had two impressive runs in Open B. He took the holeshot in the first moto and led every lap and then finished second in moto two. Richmond enjoyed High Point’s hard packed surface and picturesque location on the side of a mountain.

“The track is one of my favorites because it reminds me of home,” said Richmond. “It’s hard packed with lots of blue groove and it has tons of elevation change. The setup was great for the mud and for the dry and the Maxxis Tires were great. They had bite everywhere. The PEP suspension worked great. Wayne has them set perfectly for each race; we never had to touch them.”

Richmond left retirement to join Kyler Lenz Motorsports this season. He said he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help honor Kyler and he has ridden exceptionally well.

“It’s really exciting to be back racing, especially in memory of Kyler,” said Richmond. “This was an awesome opportunity for us and it’s great to get it on the box for the team.”

Moser came into the race with four consecutive victories in 25+, but unexpected issues kept him from going for another win.

“We ran into some mechanical issues and we made the decision to sit out the race,” said Moser. “Kevin and I agreed it wasn’t safe and we made the right decision. We’ve had such a great season already with four wins. We’re going to regroup after this race. Mark Baldwin will go over the bike and we’ll come out swinging at Muddy Creek.”

Moser looks forward to the next race at Muddy Creek. He has a storied past with the Tennessee track that includes his first Pro Am victory.

“I’ve been going there for years since I was kid and actually ran my second national there,” said Moser. “I have a long history there, and I’m excited about the next race.”

Rowe went 9-11 in the Pro motos to finish 10th overall. He was running in the top five in the second moto when another freak mechanical issue took him out of contention.

“In the first moto, I got a decent start and ended up in a pileup in the second corner,” said Rowe. “I came out dead last and worked my way up through the pack to finish ninth. In the second moto, I was running fifth and my nerf bar fell off. It was another bad luck race, but I was on the verge of a top five. I have the speed and I know our luck has to turn around soon.”

Kyler Lenz Motorsports heads next to Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN. That race is scheduled for June 2-3.
