NICOLETTI AND MOSIMAN CLOSE OUT THE SEASON WITH 7TH AND 9TH OVERALL
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team battled rainy and muddy conditions at the Ironman National, the final round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship, held in Crawfordsville, Ind. on Saturday. Despite a deteriorating track, Phil Nicoletti and Michael Mosiman nailed down two top-10 overall finishes to close out the season.
Phil Nicoletti got a great start in the first 450 moto and was second by the second lap. He quickly made his way into the lead after Justin Barcia made a mistake while leading the pack. He led for multiple laps before getting passed by Barcia, but he continued to battle the difficult conditions of the track. He pushed as hard as he could the remainder of the race and eventually finished sixth. He got a top-10 start in the second moto, quickly navigated his way into sixth, then made the pass for fifth in the third lap. He was riding strong but had to pull in for goggles around the halfway mark, then pushed his way back into the top-10. He put in an amazing effort against the extremely deteriorated track and fought his way to a seventh-place finish. The 6-7 finish gave him seventh overall on the day, and he closes the season out sixth overall in 450 rider point standings.
