Coming into the second stop of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series in Calgary, Alberta, Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing MX1 rider Colton Facciotti held the red plate signifying the series points lead and MX2 team rider Dylan Wright was anxious to make a statement after a disappointing first round.

Both team riders put in strong races during night 1 of the double-header.  Colton Facciotti and Dylan Wright both won their qualifiers and followed it up with an exciting battle over the Clash for Cash.  Facciotti eventually over-took Wright for the win and the extra Triple Crown points.  Facciotti went on to finish 3rd in the MX1 Main Event and Wright went on to finish 2nd in the MX2 Main Event proving that he has contender speed.

Rolling into night 2 of the Double-header, the race adrenaline levels were high and Colton Facciotti looked confident riding into the top MX1 qualifying spot. Dylan Wright was setting fast laps during the MX2 qualifiers, but crashed hard landing on his shoulder and was questionable for the Main Event.  Wright was forced to ride it out on the sidelines to collect any MX2 series points he could. During the MX1 Main Event, Facciotti didn’t back down and raced for the win but could only finish in 2nd place moving him backwards one spot to second overall in the Triple Crown.

The next Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series AX event resumes April 7th in Sarnia, Ontario.
