Shakopee, MN (March 7, 2017) – Hentges Racing traveled to Iowa this past weekend to compete in rounds 13 and 14 on the 17-race snocross National schedule. Sundown Mountain Resort near Dubuque, Iowa, played host to this past weekend’s racing and the team was greeted by warm temperatures and pleasant weather both days. The track carved into the ski hill featured one of the toughest downhill sections riders have ever seen, making it one of the most challenging races so far this season.
After running into problems with his machine during Friday night’s racing, Kody Kamm came back Saturday and was perfect all day, winning both his heats and following it up with a win in the final. The win keeps Kamm within easy striking distance of the points championship headed into the final three rounds of racing March 17-19.
“Saturday went excellent,” Kamm said. “Won both heats and got the holeshot in the final on the way to the win. Some bad luck on Friday, but Saturday certainly made up for it.”
Petter Narsa entered Iowa looking to shake a streak of bad luck, and things were going his way in qualifying but a crash in the final resulted in an 11th place finish. A bad start on Saturday capped off his weekend, leaving him looking toward redemption in the final three rounds.
“We had good qualifying all weekend and I got a good start in the final Friday but I made a mistake and crashed,” Narsa said. “Came out late on the start Saturday and got tangled up with three other riders and that ended my night. It’s frustrating, but the team worked hard and we’re looking forward to Lake Geneva.”
With three rounds left Kamm currently sits in 2nd place in Pro Open points, Narsa sits in 5th.
Next up for Hentges Racing is the Ram Trucks Snocross Grand Finale, March 17-19, in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
