BLOSE WINS DENVER ARENACROSS A fter a two-week break, the Amsoil Arenacross Series resumed in Denver, Colorado, April 22, at the Denver Coliseum with Chris Blose (Rockstar En- ergy OTSFF Yamaha) claiming the overall victory, going 1-4 in the two main events. Blose and Ben Lamay (Team TiLube/Jack's Links/Tuff Racing Honda) actu- ally tied on points when all was said and done, but Blose's vic- tory in the Head-To-Head Chal- lenge earlier in the evening was the tipping point for Blose. The point he earned for the Head-to- Head win tilted things in his favor for the overall, and as a result, he came away with the big win. It was not, however, enough to catch points leader Gavin Faith (Team Babbitt's/Monster Energy/Amsoil Kawasaki) in the 2017 250AX standings, but it did close the gap to just five points with only one round left. Faith didn't quite make the podium on the night, much of which had to do with a second- race bobble that dropped him from fifth in the race to eighth. He finished out the second main in fifth, which, combined with a first-race second, put him in fourth overall at the end of the night. Jace Owen, who led the points race going into the Race for the Ricky Carmichael Cup last month, was third overall and gained a few points on Faith. Owen (Tuff Racing Honda) closed out the night with an ex- citing win in the second final. He passed his Honda teammate, Lamay, on the last lap to take the win by less than a second! Travis Sewell (Kawasaki) was IN THE WIND P28 Chris Blose (2) leads the way in Denver. He held on to take the overall victory. PHOTOGRAPHY BY SHIFTONE PHOTOGRAPHY
