RACE RECAP

HAMILTON SUPERCROSS FINALE

A Final Victory lap for Facciotti

The final round of the Rockstar Energy Supercross Tour was hosted in Hamilton, Ontario and marked the end of the 2019 Triple Crown Tour.  As the curtain closed on the season, it was also the official retirement for the six-time Canadian National Champion, Colton Facciotti.  After a dominant career, Facciotti was in attendance to do his final victory lap to say farewell to his fans.  Although Colton will be done racing professionally, he will remain a full-time GDR Honda team member and help assist off the track with the team as they prepare their next generation of champions.

Coming into Round 3 of the SX Tour, Dylan Wright was in a seven-point deficit for the SX championship but had already clinched his 250cc Triple Crown title.  Always in it to win it, Wright was the top qualifier in Hamilton and looked to be back on track after an uncharacteristically difficult weekend prior in Quebec City where he finished 9th.

 

Asserting himself with the Heat race win, Wright was riding comfortable and having fun on the tight technical Hamilton track.  Getting a second place start in the Main Event, Wright patiently waited for his opportunity to execute the pass for the lead and then began to check out from the other riders and comfortably increased his lead each lap until the checkers dropped.  This earned Wright his eighth Victory of this season.

 

The Honda Canada GDR Fox Racing team ended their outstanding season on the top step of the podium and have set the bar high for their upcoming 2020 season.  Stay tuned for some exciting announcements regarding the upcoming season.
