MILLVILLE, MN (July 16, 2012) – The Rockstar Energy Racing teams overcame adversity and turned in solid performances all around at the Spring Creek National in Millville, MN, on Saturday. This weekend’s race was round seven of the 12-round series, and marked the beginning of the second half of an already hard-fought season.
The man of the hour at Millville was Rockstar Energy Racing’s Blake Wharton, who was the picture of consistency this weekend. Wharton put in two impressive 250 motos, finishing sixth in the first and fifth in the second, for an overall result of fifth for the day.
“Today was a real good day for me,” said Wharton. “My starts weren’t where I wanted them to be, but I felt like I was able to ride good. My bike was handling good and I feel one step closer to where I need to be. I’m looking forward to next weekend. I like the track at Washougal and we’ll see if we can do some damage.”
