Kyler Lenz Motorsports / Amped Apparel ATV MX Race Report

Deforest, WI (7/25/2018) – Kyler Lenz Motorsports/Amped Apparel Honda rider Korie Richmond scored a pair of victories during the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship races at RedBud MX in Buchanan, MI. Pro rider Sam Rowe finished sixth and cracked the top 10 in points. Nick Moser, having clinched the 25+ title at the last race, sat out this weekend.

#23 Korie Richmond scored wins in both the Production B & Open B at Red Bud MX

Richmond won both the Production B and Open B events finishing 1-2 in both class motos. In the Production B races he started fifth in the first moto before finishing second and led every lap from the holeshot in the second moto. In Open B, he came back from 13th to finish second in the first moto, and again led wire to wire in the second moto. He now leads the Production B Championship by seven points and is third in Open B points. Not bad for a guy who wasn’t even sure he was going to race this season!

“This is my first time getting on the podium twice in one weekend,” exclaimed Richmond. “The rough conditions played in my favor. I found a lot of smooth lines around the track that no one else saw and the Honda was handling great. The Baldwin engine gave me plenty of power and the Maxxis tires hooked up on the start, for sure. I didn’t even think I’d be racing this season and now I’m contending for two championships. I am truly blessed.”

The rough conditions were even worse in the Pro motos. After getting a good handle on the track in qualifying, Rowe finished sixth in the first moto. At the beginning of the second moto, heavy rains inundated the track and Rowe survived the chaos to finish seventh. The sixth-place overall finish places him 10th in points.

“The track was rough, but it was also tacky and wanted to pull you everywhere,” said Rowe. “It was really sloppy for the second moto, and I spun in the first turn. I was second to last and everyone was having problems; they were stuck and sliding, but my bike was on point. My JH motor and shocks worked great in the mud and the tough conditions. SSI Decals hooked me up with a sweet American Flag graphic to support Team USA. It was a good weekend.”

Kyler Lenz Motorsports will finish off its exciting and successful inaugural season at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN. That race is scheduled for August 11-12.
