August 6, 2009
Heidi Cooke remains perfect in her quest for a third Women's Motocross Championship in Canada
Riverside, CA (August 4, 2009) - The Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki team entered round seven of the Monster Energy CMRC Motocross Nationals with high expectations. Bobby Kiniry and Jack Carpenter rode their strongest motos of the season and Paul Carpenter fought to stay in the championship points chase with a third overall. Jack Carpenter rode to his highest finish of the year with a fourth overall and Kiniry was dropped to twelfth overall because of a second moto DNF.
Bobby Kiniry and Jack Carpenter secured great starts in the first moto and Kiniry was soon in the lead followed closely by Jack Carpenter in third position. Kiniry had a great battle with the current points leader for quite a few laps until going down. Meanwhile, Paul Carpenter didn't get a very good start and had to battle through the field and eventually caught his two teammates who were battling for third. In the end, it was a Kiniry finishing on the podium in third followed by Paul and Jack Carpenter in fourth and fifth, respectively.
Paul Carpenter led the pack through the first turn in the second moto but fell to third by the end of the first lap. He settled into a consistent pace and rode to an easy third place finish in the moto. Meanwhile, Kiniry was riding very well but a rock damaged his water cooler during the moto forcing him to retire to the pits early. Jack Carpenter rode another solid race and finished in fifth position again.
The Women's Motocross Nationals resumed at the Riverglade MX track and the Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki entry, Heidi Cooke, dominated once again. Cooke has not lost a moto this year and battled to another first place this weekend.
The Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki Racing Team will travel to San Del Lee MX Park in Richmond, ON on Aug 9, 2009 for round eight of the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals.
