LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The 2014 AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, season continued on Saturday night with the third round of action from Louisville, Ky., inside Freedom Hall. The championship’s first visit to Louisville since 2011 featured a dominant performance from its hometown rider as Kentucky native Tyler Bowers swept both Arenacross Class Main Events aboard his Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki presented by Maxxis to capture his second win of the season. In the Eastern Regional Arenacross Lites Class, Frontier Lubricants KTM’s Daniel Blair broke through for his first win of the year.
Bowers established his position at the front of the field as soon as the gate dropped on the first Arenacross Class Main Event, grabbing the holeshot and pulling away from the field. Triangle Cycles Yamaha’s Keith Tucker and Motosport.com/MJM Express/Spinechillers Racing KTM’s Nathan Skaggs followed in second and third, while points leader Zach Ames, who rides for Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki, and Motosport.com/MJM Express/Spinechillers Racing Kawasaki’s Michael McDade both started outside the top 10. Last week’s Saturday night winner and Road to Supercross competitor, Aaron Plessinger, also started outside the top 10 aboard his Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha.
