Houston SX is in the books, DIRT WURX USA moves on to San Diego . . . could be a mudder!

Great racing with plenty of passing highlights the Reliant Stadium event as SX racers bring the 45,859 to their feet in both the Lites & SX main events

MONROE, N.Y. (Feb. 14, 2011) – The city of Houston’s still buzzing after this past Saturday’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, main events on the DIRT WURX USA-built Reliant Stadium track. New winners in each class, including Honda’s Trey Canard, SX class and New York District 34’s own Justin Barcia (Honda) in the SX Lites class, highlighted the night’s action that saw all sorts of passing and lead changes throughout both the support and premier racing programs.

The DIRT WURX USA employee Bob Childers-designed track featured a number of bends, twists, turns and obstacle sequences not normally seen in supercross. “A fresh and innovative approach to a stadium track design, Bob nailed it with Saturday’s track in Houston,” said DIRT WURX USA principal Rich Winkler.

With a crash involving 450 class series points leader James Stewart (Yamaha) and Jason Thomas (Note: DIRT WURX USA sends its well wishes to Thomas), the series points lead moves back to Kawasaki racer Ryan Villopoto. “Along with JT, we’re also hoping K-dub (Honda’s Kevin Windham) is OK after his crash as well,” added Winkler. Windham, always a Houston fan favorite, was leading the race through lap eight and looked to be well on the way to his first victory of the season when he crashed.

imgThe opening round of the ESX Lites class series from Houston hit home with the DIRT WURX USA crew as Barcia literally grew up just a few miles from the DW HQ in upstate New York.

Noteworthy: DIRT WURX USA left a skeleton crew to clean up the dirt at Houston - along with the Feld Motor Sports team - so that they could get started building (and covering) the San Diego SX track before the expected rains hit this Wednesday. As of Sunday night they had 75-percent of the Qualcomm Stadium track built, with an expected finish – and covering – to be completed by this afternoon. “Unbelievable job,” added Winkler. “An entire San Diego build in just two days – an absolutely dry and covered track prior to Wednesday’s rains.”

With five events in five different cities over the next week (dirt bikes & monster trucks), this is DIRT WURX USA’s busiest week yet during the first quarter!
