Orlando, Fla. — Wakeboarding’s elite series will open its 2014 season with the highly-anticipated Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar Energy Drink on April 24-27 at Orlando Watersports Complex. The event, recognized as one of the largest and most prestigious wakeboarding competitions in the world, expects an international field of more than 200 athletes at this year’s contest to compete across 24 divisions.    

With one of the deepest pools of talent in the history of the Pro Men’s division, a who’s who of the world’s top riders will be in Orlando to launch their 2014 King of Wake campaigns. Among the favorites at Wake Games is last year’s Rookie of the Year winner and Team Nautique rider, Mike Dowdy. The 19 year-old prodigy spent the off-season fine tuning his contest runs behind the undisputedly proven Super Air Nautique G23, one of the official tow boats at this year’s Wake Games. With Rookie of the Year honors under his belt, Dowdy now has aspirations of dethroning the 2013 King of Wake Season Title winner Phil Soven. To gain an early points lead on Soven, an Orlando native, Dowdy will have to out-duel the hometown hero on his home turf. A long list of other top pro men will undoubtedly figure into the equation at Wake Games including last year’s Wake Games winner Harley Clifford and fan favorite and Team Nautique rider, Bob Soven.  

“It’s awesome to start the new season again with the Nautique Wake Games at Orlando Watersports Complex,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director at World Sports & Marketing. “The G23 is pumping out one of the most impressive wakes I’ve ever seen, so sky’s the limit for what we’ll be seeing the riders perform off it this year.”

A slew of professional female riders will also be in Orlando to open up the 2014 Queen of Wake season. Among the favorites competing for Wake Games gold are Team Nautique riders Raimi Merritt and Meghan Ethell.

Upping the ante at Wake Games, this year’s event will also include a team competition element. 10 pre-selected pro riders will serve as team captains and host a live draft on Friday, April 25, consisting of the 90 remaining athletes who advanced past the initial qualifying rounds. The captains will form teams from the 24 professional and amateur divisions. Over the course of the final two days of competition, the athletes will compete in their respective divisions, which are separated by age, sex and skill level, while contributing points toward a team score based on their individual placement in that division. The team with the highest collective score will win the overall title. All 24 divisions will crown an individual winner as well.

In addition to the jaw-dropping wakeboarding action, the world’s top wakeskaters will also compete at Wake Games. The competition draws some of the sport’s biggest names including Brian Grubb and Nautique team rider Brandon Thomas, who will be competing behind the all-new G21. 

The Nautique Wake Games is stop number one on the eight-event King of Wake Series. Online adult tickets are available for $7 (46% off the gate price) Gate prices are: $13 (adult); $5 (ages 6-12); free (ages 5 and under).

The Grand Prix of Brazil and the third round of 18 in the FIM Motocross World Championship was a positive one for Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP as Clement Desalle celebrated his second podium result of the season in front of 35,000 spectators at Beto Carrero.

The first of two outings in Brazil this season took place at the facility annexed from the popular theme park for the third year in a row. The small and narrow layout was again surrounded by a noisy and boisterous crowd. The gathering added that typical Brazilian flavour found at motorsports events, all in spite of an overcast sky and some stuffy air (temperatures touching 30 degrees with high humidity).

Desalle flew his RM-Z450 to third position in the opening moto and held-off the attention of Max Nagl in the last two laps for arguably the hottest battle in the race. The Belgian was again at the front of the pack in Moto2 and although he could do little to prevent Antonio Cairoli to demote him to third place, his consistency delivered the runner-up position overall and his second trophy in as many Grands Prix.

Fresh from sealing his second Pole Position in three Grands Prix, Kevin Strijbos endured some drama in the first moto when his goggle lens popped out and he had to pit for a new pair. Towards the end of the race the Belgian suffered some arm-pump and claimed 13th position at the chequered flag. The second moto was better for the 28 year old and although his sixth place was an improvement and better haul of points, Strijbos still felt below par with his performance and potential and ended the day with eighth overall.

Desalle is now fourth in the MXGP standings with a 31 point deficit to Antonio Cairoli at the top of the table. Strijbos holds sixth after three races and is just 38 away from Desalle.

The Belgian operation will pack the travel crates for the last time (until the second visit to Brazil in September for the penultimate round of the series) and head back to Lommel where a free weekend will precede back-to-back trips to Italy (GP of Trentino at Arco di Trento) and Bulgaria.

Clement Desalle:

“I’m on the podium with no crashes or injuries, so these are the positive points. It has taken a lot to come back from my shoulder injury so I am happy with how some things are going. It was hot out there today and easy to make a mistake. It was not difficult to ride but you had to be measured with the 450 out of those corners. I’d like to say thanks to the team because they have worked really hard in the past weeks to try and improve.”

Kevin Strijbos:

“Today was for sure not what I was expecting. The front wheel grabbed too much air out of the gate of the first moto but despite the bad start I had some good lines and could pass a lot of people. After five laps I had some arm-pump and at the same time a rock hit my goggle and the lens popped out. I had to pull into the change because the race was not even half over. In the second race I had a better start but just ended up riding a rhythm that was not that good. I couldn’t push because if I did I knew my arms would flare up. Sixth was better than 13th and I know I can do much better. I need to sort out my arms and I might go to the hospital this week. I’m pretty down at the moment and need to clear my mind for Arco.”

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/jason-anderson-brings-the-red-plate-back-home-from-oakland <![CDATA[Jason Anderson Brings the Red Plate Back Home]]> 2014-10-13T10:44:41-07:00
Jason Anderson was definitely not happy the Saturday night after A2 when he learned of his penalty docking him 2 positions. However not unlike a Professional Quarterback in the NFL, you have to have short memory when adversity strikes and simply move forward. By Monday morning Jason was at the test track, back on his program and preparing for the short trip north to the bay area with the past behind him. It was evident in practice that his focus on the championship was unwavered. Anderson and Dean Wilson were blazing fast in practice. In fact the duo posted lap times quicker than any of the 450's. The stage was clearly set for a battle between them. Jason once again claimed victory in his heat race for the 4th consecutive time this year, in as many attempts. Exiting the first turn in the main event, both were near the front and fell in behind Justin Hill. The three front runners engaged in a fierce battle for the lead with nobody wanting to relinquish any ground. Finally Anderson moved by Hill, but also left the door open for Wilson who suddenly moved straight from 3rd to 1st. JA got in behind him and they began to negotiate lappers. He closed the gap considerably and got right on Wilson's rear tire who then experienced some sort of brief minor hiccup that looked to be mechanical. It was just enough to let Jason by and claim the last lap win again! It has become clear that the #17 can never be counted out of any race.

Jason Anderson: "Weekend was good. I had another last lap pass annndd (laughs) it was awesome. 3 wins on the season so far and you can't beat that. I just need to stay in it and keep doin my thing."

Ivan Tedesco definitely put in a lot of laps on the track in the O.Co Coliseum. 3 practices and 4 races to be exact. For the first time this season he was forced to go to the LCQ. He looked to be qualifying easily out of the semi, until near the end of the qualifier he caught his foot on the face of the finish line double sending him sideways and tumbling to the ground. Fortunately he was unharmed in the incident, but unfortunately he missed getting into the main by one position. He then won the last chance qualifier easily. Tedesco certainly had enough laps to have the track dialed but facing him was the 20 lap main event and he was going to be lined up way on the outside. He squeezed around turn one safely but was near the back. He worked his way up through the field but began to run out of steam in the waning laps. He was able to match his best finish of the season however and through everything overcome on the day, that shows his continued progression to return to form.

Ivan Tedesco: "The day went ok. Practice was a little rough the same as it has been the past few weekends. It's taking me a little while to get used to the tracks. It gets better every time I go out there. I got plenty of track time tonight going to the LCQ. I put it in the main and got another bad start. I just clicked off as many laps as good as I could and I ended up 12th. It's getting better and we'll keep workin at it."

The team will now prepare for the final trip of the year to Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Anderson who now has a 6 point lead will look to extend it, Tedesco will shoot for the top ten once again and also try to cut the gap to 10th in overall points, which he coincidentally sits 10 points out of.

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/dylan-kwasniewski-no-31-nns-post-race-report-las-vegas-motor-speedway <![CDATA[Dylan Kwasniewski No. 31 NNS Post-Race Report: Las Vegas Motor Speedway]]> 2014-10-13T10:44:41-07:00 Kwasniewski Suffers Damage, Leaves Vegas with 24th-Place Finish

LAS VEGAS (March 9, 2014) - Dylan Kwasniewski came to Las Vegas looking to make his first-career NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) a memorable one. Kwasniewski and his No. 31 Rockstar Energy team started the weekend by earning their secondtop-10 qualifying effort of the year, placing the Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) machine eighthon the board after three sessions in NASCAR's new "knock out" qualifying format. Kwasniewski was able to keep his Chevy Camaro in the top 15 during the first third of the race, but suffered a setback and hit the wall on lap 70, resulting in heavy rear-end damage to the Rockstar Camaro. However, Kwasniewski and his crew never gave up and crossed the finish line in the 24th position.

Shortly after the green flag dropped at LVMS, the field quickly jockeyed for position as passing was at premium during the 200-lap race. By lap 10, Kwasniewski had settled into 14th position and was content learning his way around the 1.5-mile oval. After trying several lines, the young rookie was eventually running lap times as quick as the leaders halfway through his first fuel run. The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender was scored in the 13th position, one lap down when he made his first green-flag pit stop on lap 47. During the green-flag pit stop, crew chief Pat Tryson called Kwasniewski down pit road for four tires, fuel and a track-bar adjustment for the No. 31 Rockstar Energy Chevy. As green-flag pit stops were beginning to cycle through, the first caution of the day came out on Lap 56, causing a few competitors to go a lap down. After an extended caution by NASCAR to ensure that scoring was correct, Kwasniewski restarted in the 13th position, one lap down on lap 69.

One lap after the restart, Kwasniewski was battling for position and made contact with another competitor, causing him to hit the wall in Turn 3, bringing out the second caution of the day on Lap 70. After gathering himself, Kwasniewski brought the Rockstar Energy Chevy down pit road to the attention of his crew. After working diligently to ensure Kwasniewski didn't lose another lap, the TSM crew was able to repair the damage suffered during the accident and Kwasniewski restarted in the 21st position, still only one lap down. Three laps after the restart, Kwasniewski radioed to his crew that he had a left-rear tire rub. Not taking any chances, Tryson called the young rookie down pit road to repair the damage. During the pit stop, NASCAR penalized the No. 31 team for speeding entering pit road. After serving a pass-through penalty, Kwasniewski was scored in the 30th position, four laps down. 

Determined not to give up at his hometown track, Kwasniewski continued to learn his way 1.5-mile oval and worked his way into the 23rd position when the third caution of the day came out on lap 144. During the caution, Kwasniewski stayed out on the track, took the wave around and gained one of his laps back, restarting in 23rd. Kwasniewski would continue to battle following the restart and would ultimately bring the Rockstar Energy Chevy home in the 24th position. 

"I have to thank my guys at Turner Scott Motorsports for working so hard this weekend on this Rockstar Energy Chevrolet," Kwasniewski said. "This was not the weekend we were hoping for, but my guys never gave up and we continued to battle all weekend. This was a huge learning experience for me and I think it will only help us as we move along during the season. I appreciate all of my family and friends who came out to support me. It was great being back home in Las Vegas, but I am looking forward to putting this weekend behind me and moving on to Bristol next weekend." 

The NNS next heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Drive To Stop Diabetes 300 on Saturday, March 15 at 1:00 p.m. EDT on ESPN.

Matt Ladley, who had stomped a frontside 180 heading switch into a huge cab 7, followed by a front 12, backside 9, front 9, back 5, and then front double 10, placed 3rd with a score of 93.

Saturday’s Slopestyle Qualifier #5 marked the end of qualifying for the U.S. Snowboard Slopestyle team, and was by far one of the toughest competitions of the year. Kyle Mack took his second podium of the series, putting down a solid 92.4 on his first run. Unfortunately, Mack’s two podium finishes this weekend left him just outside the three Olympic qualifying spots. Chas Guldemond, on the other hand, who had an unusually difficult time making clean runs during this final qualifier, had already accumulated enough points to make the U.S. Olympic team and will compete in the inaugural Olympic slopestyle snowboard event in Sochi.

“This weekend started out as difficult because when I woke up yesterday I had a really bad stomach problem, and I had never really felt that way at a race before. I struggled, especially in the qualification Heat. I had to slow down quite a lot. I had some medicine and tried to have a good night but it was not easy. I wanted to do the best I could today and I’m quite surprised! My feeling on the bike was much better; really good. It was so nice to get two moto wins like I did. It is good for the confidence and the championship. I was really happy about my riding and I enjoyed myself out there. The track was technical and when it is like this – that you need to find a good line to go fast – I like it a lot. I have to say I’m pleased to win in Spain because I appreciate this country. The start was so important and I managed to have two really good ones. I want to say thanks to the team because we have worked a lot so I can feel good on the bike and it is going better and better.”
