(September 26, 2012) - David Gaviria is gaining some serious momentum. As the 2011 AMA Pro Western SuperSport Champion, David joined the Kneedraggers.com/Triplecrown team half way through the season and it’s obvious to see that the machine, rider and crew are really starting to come together. In the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike race 2 at Mid-Ohio Gaviria finished 22nd, at Laguna Seca he finished 12th, in New Jersey he placed 12th in race 1 and worked his way inside the top 10 for a 9th place finish in race 2. At the Homestead Miami Big Kahuna he qualified 12th but improved a spot when he finished 11th on Saturday. On Sunday, David Gaviria delivered his best performance of the year with a top 5 finish.
It’s been quite a journey for Gaviria who found himself searching for a team half way through the season. What’s unique about David is that he has to fly back and forth from Medellin, Columbia to the states to attend the AMA Pro Racing rounds. Thanks to an extensive group of fans and supporters, along with the Kneedraggers.com/Triplecrown Industries team, Gaviria has been able to improve round after round after round and has no plans of stopping any time soon.
David Gaviria is not the only Kneedraggers.com/Triplecrown Industries team member that has recently been gaining momentum. Austin Dehaven who returned to racing at Homestead Miami after a motorcross accident broke bones in his foot thought he had delivered his best finish of the year on Saturday in the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike class. Dehaven was able to top his performance on Saturday with an even better finish on Sunday when he came well inside the top 10 with an 8th place finish.
Tommy Aquino had a solid 7th place finish on Saturday, but ran into some bad luck on Sunday when the aluminum shifter bolt snapped off. When he ran into a couple issues with his bike on Saturday, Benny Solis did not run on Sunday.
After a 2nd place podium finish on Saturday, Stefano Mesa sat down with the Kneedraggers.com/Triplecrown team to come up with a winning strategy for Sunday. When it came to tire choice they knew that most teams would run the soft and went with the hard tire to finish strong. Everything was going according to plan, in lap 7 Mesa was in 6th, lap 8 he moved up to 5th. In lap 9 Stefano move up another spot to 4th and continued to charge. As Mesa worked his way through the field and quickly closed in on the leaders a red flag came out in lap 10 that ended the race. Stefano Mesa had the 2nd fastest lap time of the race, Dustin Dominguez laid down a 1:26.195 with Stefano about a tenth behind him with a 1:26.231. Sometimes the red flag goes your way and sometimes it doesn’t but it doesn’t take away from an incredible performance by Stefano Mesa and the entire Kneedraggers.com/Triplecrown Industries team.
