Daytona, FL (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
BTO Sports, a leader in motocross gear, parts and more, has announced the results of the KTM team at the Daytona International Speedway Supercross event.
EVENT RECAP - The BTO Sports – KTM team rolled in to the Daytona International Speedway for round ten of the Monster Energy Supercross Series. Team riders Andrew Short and Matt Goerke were prepared to take on the tough outdoor style track Saturday night.
Andrew Short is making progress on the BTO Sports – KTM dirt bike as he posted the 10th fastest time of the day in qualifying. In his heat, Short pushed his FMF Racing exhaust to its limits allowing him to get a great start and lead early on. He would eventually finish 7th, after a mistake on the rough Daytona track while battling with Ken Roczen for the lead. In the main event, Short started outside the top ten and from there he jockeyed for position until eventually ending up with his 12th place finish. Short still secures 8th in points going in to Indianapolis this weekend.
Matt Goerke felt at home on the Daytona track, as he would post the 15th fastest time of the day in qualifying. As the gate dropped for his heat race, the Pirelli Scorpion MX tires would propel Matt to a 6th place finish. In the main, Matt would get a good start and run inside the top ten in 7th until midway where a misstep in a corner would stop his progress. After taking a bit to get going he put his head down and caught back up to finish 11th. Going in to Indianapolis, Matt is 11th in points.
“Daytona wasn't what we were hoping, but the positive is everyone is healthy” said team manager Forrest Butler “We are looking forward to Indy and putting the BTO Sports – KTM bikes up front.”
