Valcourt, Quebec, May 9 , 2008 – Team Motoworks / Can-Am TM racer Brandon Smith looked impressive as he passed several ride rs to take the weekend win at the recent ITP Quadcross race near Adalanto, Calif. The rider had a mid-pack start, but quickly caught and passed the race leader in fine fashion. His teammate, Josh Frederick , was able to secure third place , putting two Can-A m DS 450 TM race ATVs on the podium for the weekend.
" The entire Team Motoworks effort continues to look impressive ," said Del Bohlman, Product, Media Relation and Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP . " Each week they prove they are ready to compete and win at any level. "
Team Motoworks / Can-Am amateur racer , Dillon Zimmerman , had a mixed weekend of racing. In the 265-450 Expert class, he took third overall for the weekend. However, in the 91-450 Four-Stroke Expert class, after winning the first race ea sily aboard his DS 450, a second-race crash took away his chances of winning that class.
"I ' m really happy; this is my first Pro Quadcross win. It feels really good to have a win under my belt! I really didn ' t expect the win. I crashed last week and am not quite at 100% yet, but I ' m looking forward to the next round when I will be completely healed and ready to try for another win."
Johnny Leach (team owner)
"The Can-Am bikes ran great all weekend and the guys did a fantastic job out there. We had a really good weekend of racing. This is our third race in a row with zero failures so we are p r etty happy to have all the bugs worked out."
The next ITP Quadcross race is on June 22 , at Speedworld track near Surprise, Ariz . The main races will b e held under the lights Saturday night. Visit www.can-amxteam.com for more details and race results.
