Chad McKay #33 Press Releases
Chad McKay was sitting in 7th place in the WA series leading into this round so he new he had to put together some good results to improve his position after missing round 2 due to injury. The conditions were very wet and the race was in fact nearly cancelled because it was considered too dangerous because of how wet the track was. The riders were called to vote wether they wanted to cotinue the day after practice and McKay knew this would be a good opportunity to make up some points so he voted yes.
Race One saw Chad and Ryan Lancaster side by side in turn one but Lancaster grabbed the holeshot. He and Chad battled for the first few laps and pulled away from the rest of the field Chad was getting drilled with the wet muddy roost and dropped back about 10 seconds to cross the line behind Lancaster.
Race 2 wasnt as good for the Can-Am rider as he was pushed wide in turn 2 and dropped back ro 5th where he stayed the whole race.
Race 3 Chad was 5th out of turn one but moved up to 3rd behind Lancaster and Glen Ashworth. Ryan and Chad both passed Glen and battled for a couple of laps until Ryan pulled a lead. Luke Gaisford also made his way around Asworth and pressured McKay all the way to the finish line to take 3rd behind Chad and Ryan.
McKay finished 2nd overall which moved him up to 6th in the series but is only 12 points behind Ashworth who is now holding 3rd position. Chad looks to improve his position and get enough points to make his way up to 3rd, considering there is 2 rounds left and they are both hard pack McKay is feeling confident he can do so.
