Amsoil-Arenacross-10-10-12LOUISVILLE, 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.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — A formal Discussion Draft entitled, “Enhancing CPSC Authority and Discretion Act of 2011 (ECADA),” will be voted upon tomorrow by the U.S. House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade of the Committee on Energy & Commerce, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.

The AMA disapproves of the process in which this draft bill was scheduled for consideration, and urges off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts to contact their U.S. Representatives immediately to express their concern.

“The revised draft legislation was announced within 36 hours of the actual markup,” said Ed Moreland, AMA senior vice president of government relations. “While this is consistent with the committee rules for announcing meetings, the short notice gives us great concern because the public had very little time to vet the draft bill properly prior to its consideration tomorrow.”

According to the subcommittee, chaired by Representative Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.), the draft legislation would revise the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 and seeks to give the Consumer Product Safety Commission greater authority and flexibility to regulate based on risk.

“We are urging AMA members and all OHV riders to contact their member of Congress immediately and ask them to offer H.R. 412, the Kids Just Want to Ride Act of 2011, as an amendment to ECADA,” Moreland said.

The markup session begins at 9:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, May 12, in Room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building, and votes will occur on amendments and the draft bill.
