Jacob Hayes wins Saturday AX Lites main event and Clash for Cash at season opener
Sept 28, 2015(Kamloops, British Columbia) The Monster Energy Thor Kawasaki team kicked off the 2015 Monster Energy Canadian Arenacross Tour with a solid debut weekend, taking a main event win, a Clash for Cash win and five more podiums over the two nights with riders Jacob Hayes and Chris Blose.
For Hayes, he showed the speed that made him an AMA Arenacross title contender by taking all four wins in his heat races over the course of the two nights. On Friday night, he got a bad start in the AX Pro main event before working his way up to fourth and grabbed second in the Lites main event. In the Clash for Cash race, Hayes finished second. On Saturday night, Hayes was running in the third position in the AX Pro main before being taken out and finishing ninth. He bounced back in the Lites main to take the win and followed it up with another win in the Clash for Cash.
Chris Blose was super consistent all weekend, finishing on the podium in all four main events. He grabbed a second and a third place finish in the AX Pro and Lites main events, respectively on Friday night, with a fourth in the Clash for Cash. Saturday saw him finish with a pair of thirds in the main events with a second, behind his teammate, Hayes, in the Clash for Cash.
The series now takes a weekend off before resuming in at Hiawatha Park in Sarnia, Ontario on October 9th.
