“Wow! After the last two rounds of wet conditions it has been quite the "Show" at the GNCC's. The JCR/Honda team is working hard on all levels to progress this program to the podium. Chris has been an amazing racer to work with in our young team. I have no doubt we will be hitting the podium soon. Chris is working hard and our Honda CRF450R is developing into a really great weapon for cross-country racing. Stay tuned in as we work hard to build a champion in this young program. Special thanks to Rockstar Energy for providing the Energy we need to compete in these endurance races and the canopies that kept the crew dry and thanks to Lucas Oils for supplying us with the oils and lubricants we needed to race in these wet sloppy conditions. Looking forward to next round in North Carolina.” -- Johnny Campbell

“Tough day on the course, but my Honda CRF450R kept me in the lead pack before rider error kept us from a top finish. Looking forward to refining my race strategy and racing the awesome Honda CRF450R.” -- Chris Bach]]> <![CDATA[Clement Desalle Finishes 2nd in Mantova, Italy]]> 2015-06-17T06:33:06-07:00 <![CDATA[Desalle Races to 3rd MXGP win of 2014]]> 2015-06-17T06:33:06-07:00
Dry, hard, restrictive, challenging and polarising: St Jean d’Angely was this and more for the Grand Prix of France and the ninth MXGP round of the FIM Motocross World Championship where Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle performed superbly to claim both motos and toast his third overall triumph of the season in front of 32,000 spectators.

Back on the calendar after the French fixture had de-camped to Ernee in 2013, St Jean was busy and appreciated by the fans that lapped-up the summer temperatures and generous sunshine close to the west coast. For the riders the tight hillside terrain was either a tricky and demanding prospect or ultimately a frustrating one through the search for lines and overtaking spots.

Desalle came to France after winning three of the last four MXGP motos. He marked the fastest lap on this RM-Z450 in Timed Practice and rode to a confident second position in the qualification heat race on Saturday to set him up nicely for Sunday’s 30 minute and two-lap motos. Race day was all about a duel with World Champion Antonio Cairoli as the two principal rivals for the 2014 title dictated the pace. The ‘#25’ shadowed the Italian in both sprints and bided his time, applying pressure for a mistake. Remarkably Cairoli erred in the closing stages of both outings. Desalle pounced on an awkward line by his peer in Moto1 and then fended off Cairoli’s renewed threat before the chequered flag; less than a second divided them at the line. With two laps to go in Moto2 Cairoli was unsighted by a backmarker and crashed, leaving Desalle with a clear track to extend his run to five moto wins from six and two GP triumphs from the last three.

Never a fan of St Jean, Kevin Strijbos struggled to gel with the circuit on Saturday. The Belgian experimented and tweaked his race set-up and found some improvements and an effective speed and rhythm on race day. His start was not the best in the first moto but he reacted quickly in the opening phases to reach fourth. His luck deserted him in the second affair when he had nowhere to go to avoid the fallen David Philippaerts on the second lap and hit the ground himself. From last place Strijbos reached 13th for sixth overall.

With over half of the season now consigned to stats sheets and results pages Desalle is still second in the MXGP standings with a gap of just 20 points to Cairoli. With 25 points awarded for a moto victory the championship chase is still close. Strijbos remains fourth with a distance of 82 to the top three.

Grands Prix in Italy and Germany will form the next successive stint of the MXGP calendar. The journey to Maggiora will begin in over a week with the race taking place on June 14-15 and Teutschenthal occurring seven days later. Desalle won a moto last year at Maggiora and at Teutschenthal he was part of the victorious Belgian Motocross of Nations team in September.

Clement Desalle:

“It is always great to win! I saw after the qualification moto that it would be very complicated to pass here and the start would be ‘more’ than important. I had a great one in the first moto, made some mistakes and dropped back to fourth but was soon into second and trying to stay with Tony. He is a very good rider so my plan was to stay as close to him as I could until the end of the race and it worked out like this in both motos. It is a really great feeling that the strategy worked. I wasn’t hoping that he [Cairoli] would make a mistake because I never want a rider to crash but to have an opportunity to pass was the goal.

“I try to improve each year and to be better and I’m happy today that it worked out. It was easy to hit stones and make errors. I am disappointed that the landing was not well prepared on the big downhill jump; I took a lot of risks on this part and I think there was time between the motos to flatten it for what was such a critical area. You have to focus so much on a track like this and it is not hard to lose concentration, especially when you are pushing at the front. It was an intense few laps in both motos and I’m definitely very happy. I would like to dedicate this win to my grandfather who passed away two years ago yesterday and there are still some important memories for me.”

Kevin Strijbos:

“This is not my track! I never seem to ride well here but today I had good speed and not much luck. Fourth was OK in the first moto but I don’t know what happened at the start of the second. I shut off too early on the first corner and then the first laps were pretty difficult. I couldn't find my rhythm and Philippaerts lost control in a rut in front of me. The bike went sideways and I hit his spinning rear wheel. I went over the bars and my bike was then stuck on his handlebar! It took a while to get free and I knew the race was finished. I don't know where I was but I tried my best. What more can I say? We have a weekend off now and our schedule is not fixed yet. I’m happy with our set-up for the hard-pack so we’ll see in Italy.”

WOOTTON, UK (May 26, 2014) - Rockstar Energy Drink driver Tanner Foust put on a strong performance at the Lydden Hill Circuit this weekend to finish his first World Rallycross Championship appearance of the year in the top five.

"It's great having the opportunity to race at Lydden Hill, the place where rallycross was invented and a track that gets such huge and enthusiastic crowds," said Foust. "I always have an amazing experience here in the UK."

Driving a new Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Polo, Foust was an early favorite for the podium at the British event. An estimated 15,000 fans packed into the venue this weekend to take in the second stop of the 2014 World RX. In a record field of 37 drivers, the popular American driver finished all but one of his four opening heats near the top of the rankings to earn a spot in the main event.

The Lydden Hill Circuit is the birthplace of rallycross, where the very first races took place more than 40 years ago. It is a challenging track that calls for smooth and tidy driving on the technical road course portions, and full-attack sideways slides through gravel.

Promoted to the six-car Final at the last minute when one of his rivals was unable to come to the line, Foust lined up against championship regulars, including Volkswagen teammate Toomas "Topi" Heikkinen. He battled off the start, fighting a power steering issue, but ultimately had to slow when his car began to run out of fuel and teammate Heikkinen slipped past him at the finish. He crossed the line in fifth, ahead of former World Rally Champion Petter Solberg.

The Volkswagen Polo R that Foust campaigned at Lydden Hill was developed specifically for World RX competition by Marklund Motorsport and was new to the driver this weekend. Although it is under development this season, it has already shown winning potential.

"This new car has more than proven itself at the top of the field," said Foust. "To have two of the team's cars reach the Final in such a competitive field is an accomplishment and I look forward to returning to World RX next month to see what we can do in Finland."

In the United States, Foust will soon debut the all-new Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Beetle, a 560 horsepower turbocharged rallycross car built for Global Rallycross competition.

Rallycross is a blend of circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition. It promises intense crowd-pleasing action in a fan-friendly track environment. As many as 10 drivers line up to start at once, piloting high-horsepower compact cars through race traffic over a challenging short course that features jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions between pavement and gravel.

The two-time Global Rallycross Champion is running a select season of four events in the World RX series this year and will return to Europe in a month's time to contest the Finnish round. Before then, Foust will be back in Global Rallycross competition with the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross squad at X Games in Austin, Tex., on June 7.

Available in over 20 flavors at convenience and grocery outlets in over 30 countries, Rockstar supports the Rockstar lifestyle across the globe through Action Sports, Motor Sports, and Live Music.

Tanner Foust is a versatile and multi-talented driver known for his supreme car control and a proven track record of podium placements, national championships and world records. He is a three-time U.S. rallycross champion (2012, 2011, 2010) who has also won four X Games gold medals (2013, 2010, 2007), and two Formula Drift championships (2008, 2007).

He has also held multiple world records including for the astonishing Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare, which saw Foust drive a car through a 66-foot loop-the-loop. He also scored the indoor speed record for TV's Top Gear USA, and set a distance jump record with Hot Wheels when he made a 332' ramp-to-ramp leap in a truck at the Indy 500.

He has represented the USA in the annual Race of Champions three times, teaming with NASCAR star Carl Edwards in 2008, Travis Pastrana in 2009, and Mick Doohan in 2010.

A year after making his overseas debut in the European Rallycross Championship in 2010 with a select campaign, Foust became the first American driver to win a round of that championship and finished both 2011 and 2012 ranked in the top three; he won two of the three rounds he entered last year. At home, Foust has been a dominant driver in rallycross since it was first introduced to the United States in 2010.

When he isn't racing, the professional driver also performs in films and on television. He is an on-air host for the U.S. version of the seminal BBC auto show Top Gear, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions and airing on the HISTORY channel. Episodes of his online documentary series, Life in the Foust Lane, are available on the Rockstar Energy Drink YouTube channel.

Foust also handles stunt driving in numerous popular films, TV shows and commercials. He is featured as a stunt driver in the upcoming Need 4 Speed film, as well as other major releases including the Bourne Legacy, Bourne Ultimatum, Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Dukes of Hazzard, Red Dawn and Iron Man 2 movies.

Ivan Tedesco has been consistent in his heat races thus far in 2014. In fact he has been one spot out of qualifying in what seems like nearly every round. If he could just find a way to be one position faster, he could make things a lot easier on himself and be less fatigued entering the main, as well as obtain a more preferred gate choice. That's easier said than done however as every rider finishing in front of Ivan each week has either won a professional championship or at the very least 450 main events. That's a testament to the level of talent currently fielded in the premiere class.

Tedesco was able to successfully transfer out of the semi again however, thus skipping the dangerous last chance qualifier. As the gate dropped for the main event, he just didn't get a good jump at all and decided to cut to the inside. The result was not good as he started in the back. He made several passes and moved near the top ten before his progress stalled. He engaged in a battle with Josh Hill and a little game of cat and mouse ensued. IT ended up on the short end of that commotion as he was unable to jump the big triple and lost positions in the process. He was able to recover enough and fight through to regain a couple spots but was certainly displeased with his performance overall.

Ivan Tedesco: "Rough night for me in that main. I got a bad start and was on the outside. I got arm pump like the 5th lap in and I was honestly struggling just to finish the race. I don't know what happened, I just got tight. That's about it, I finished 14th, pretty bad. Just going to move onto the next one which is all we can do."

Cole Thompson had a much better day in Qualifying practice than the inaugural East Coast 250 round a week ago. Then in his heat race he had a good start and was near the front. As the track winded around and crossed back over the start, there was a fairly large double out of an off camber turn. Cole spun coming up to the jump and still went for it. He was not even close and cased it about as bad as physically possible with out going down. In fact it was a miracle the he stayed up after hitting his face on the handlebars and leaving a huge divot in the ground. He recollected himself and went on to qualify anyway.

In the main event he had another good start but unfortunately came together with Blake Bagget going down the straight and ended up near last place exiting the first turn. Sprint speed is very important the first few laps, especially when getting a bad start. Moves need to be made quickly so riders can be picked off in bunches before things spread out. The first few laps is where Cole has been struggling. He was still able to make his way back in the top ten though which is commendable for anyone on that track. After the race Thompson put the blame solely on himself. He stated that everything around him is excellent and that he just didn't perform. Perhaps Cole is being too hard on himself, or maybe that is just what he needs to do to take that next step. He has top 5 speed and it won't be long before he figures it all out.

Cole Thompson: "Not my best night of riding, I finished 8th. Got a bad start and wasn't really aggressive the first few laps. The track was tricky tonight and I just didn't make things happen quick enough."

The series now heads to Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Stadium. Another round that sees 60,000 plus spectators. Tedesco will work on his speed and getting out of the gate better. Thompson will focus on the early laps, aggressiveness and sprints to put himself where he feels he should be.

]]> <![CDATA[DYLAN KWASNIEWSKI WINS NASCAR K&N PRO SERIES EAST]]> 2015-06-17T06:33:05-07:00 Kwasniewski Crowned 2013 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Champion  BRASELTON, Ga. (October 18, 2013) - Dylan Kwasniewski has claimed his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) championship. After graduating from high school and relocating to North Carolina from Las Vegas, Kwasniewski was quick to make himself known out east, becoming the first NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver to win championships in both the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (NKNPSW), achieving the feat in back-to-back years. 

After a tight battle coming into the final weekend of the season, Kwasniewski went on to win his sixth race of the year in the No. 98 Rockstar Energy/Royal Purple Chevrolet, edging out his closest competitor to be crowned the 2013 NKNPSE Champion.  Kwasniewski began racing in the NKNPSW in 2011 for Gene Price Motorsports. Despite having to miss a race, he was still able to end the season with Rookie of the Year honors. He returned to the NKNPSW in 2012 and scored three wins, six poles, 12 top fives, and 15 top 10s en route to his first NASCAR championship at only 17 years old.  

After relocating to the East Coast earlier this year, Kwasniewski ran the full NKNPSE schedule with Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM), a team new to the series. After running away with the points lead earlier in the season, two disappointing finishes in the past two races forced a close points battle, coming down to the final race at Road Atlanta.  After rain washed out qualifying, Kwasniewski started from the pole, with his closest competitor for the title right beside him. In true championship fashion, Kwasniewski got out front of the field and never looked back, leading all 28 laps of the Road Atlanta 115.  This year for Kwasniewski was another one for the record books, as the 18-year-old captured six wins, three poles, eight top fives and 10 top 10s. 

"I entered this season with one goal and that was to win this championship," said Kwasniewski. "To be able to accomplish it is very gratifying and I'm very grateful for everyone that helped make it possible. I really have to thank [crew chief] Marty Lindley and the rest of my Turner Scott Motorsports team. From our very first race out, we were successful. You never would have guessed this was a brand-new team. Through all the ups and downs of our season, I always knew I had the very best team. I also want to thank Rockstar Energy Drink and Royal Purple for having enough faith in me to make the jump from the West to the East. I'm very honored to bring them another championship."
