Payson, UT (Jan.25, 2021) –The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season had one last gate drop at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX for round three of the series. Team rider Joey Savatgy put his head down and raced to a 14th in the main event.
Joey Savatgy came into Houston 3 prepared. In the first 450 heat race, Joey used his FMF power to launch out of the gate and found himself fighting in a three-way battle inside the top ten for most of the race. Keeping his cool, the Engine Ice supported rider made the pass on Dylan Ferrandis to take the checkered flag in 8th place. In the main, Joey overcame a mid-pack start, pushing forward on the rutted-up track earning 14th at the finish of the race.
“While my start did not do me any favors in the main, I found some good lines on the track that allowed me to work my way up through the field. We will keep moving forward and building momentum, make a few adjustments to the bike and be prepared in Indianapolis next week.”–Joey Savatgy
Justin Bogle rounded the first turn of his heat race and battled within the top ten in the race. Keeping a good pace throughout the race allowed him to make a pass on the last lap crossing the finish line in 7th earning a spot in the main event. Justin let his Dunlop tires dig for traction at the start of the main event as a good start put him in position to battle within the top ten early in the race. While Justin had an unfortunate issue late in the race, he showed he had the pace to run inside the top ten. Look for him to come back swinging in Indianapolis.
With both riders leaving Houston healthy, the season picks back up on Saturday as the Monster Energy Supercross series visits Indianapolis for the next three rounds.
