Red Bud Moto 2 – 32nd

Sorry it took so long to check in. I got cought up with packing and getting on the road. Tucker had another good start in the second moto. He ended up 19th on the first lap and by the eighth lap, he had moved up to 15th. He was riding strong and consistantly moving forward. The track was rough. Tucker said it was the roughest he’s ever seen it at Red Bud. The changed the format this year so the 250 class runs after the 450 class. On the ninth lap, Tucker got out of rythem in a sand section – his front wheel jack-knifed and he got thrown over the bars. Uninjured, he jumped up but couldn’t get his bike started. He pushed his bike off the track with the help of his buddy and Asterisk medic, Eddie. Once he got his bike started, he pulled over to the mechanic’s area for fresh goggles an gloves and jumped back in the race. He slavaged a 32nd finish for 19th overall for the day.
Tucker said he’s disappointed in his second moto results but still felt like he rode well.
Thanks for checking in and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
