The Rockstar Energy Triple Crown series nears the end of its championship battle and only eight points separated first and second place in the chase for the 100k Triple Crown prize money.  Round 3 of the Championship battle was hosted inside the Videotron Centre in Quebec City.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – SX1:

After a disappointing opening round of the SX Tour in Montreal, Dylan Wright was sidelined for round two and made his return to racing at round three in the SX1 class.  With SX1 teammate in a championship battle, the added competition would prove to be a factor.  Qualifying for the night show in 9th place, speculations that Dylan’s motives for the night’s racing were in question so the GDR Honda team decided to have Dylan sit out from the night’s racing to avoid any discrepancies. 

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – SX1:

The tension around the points battle between Facciotti and Triple Crown Series leader, Cole Thompson was peaking in Quebec City.  The gap was only 8 points with two main events left to go.  With aggressive riding coming into play several times earlier in the Triple Crown series, Facciotti’s strategy was to get the holeshot and check out for the Main Event win and avoid drama.   Getting another Royal Distributing Holeshot, Colton clicked off clean laps while leading the entire main event until disaster struck in the last corner from a charging Cole Thompson. Facciotti was ejected across the finish line, but did not remount and went to the hospital for further evaluation. This now drops Facciotti down 11 points from the Triple Crown title with one main event left.  At this time, it’s unknown if Colton will be recovered to race round 4.
