BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 27, 2014) - After nearly breaking into the top 10 in the AMA Pro Racing Vance and Hines Harley-Davidson race held at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds AL on June 22nd, Shelina headed straight to Springfield IL for her first attempt at a Springfield Mile dirt track event. Shelina will be competing for Team DGR in the AMA Dirt Track Grand Championship, which is a 4 round event that utilizes the Mile, Half-Mile, and TT courses at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
After switching to Nitron suspension and working on the set-up with Lenny Albin and Paul Diener, Shelina was able to drop her lap times by almost 7 seconds from first practice to final qualifying. Starting 17th on the grid, she was able to immediately move forward and battle for 14th thru 11th until the last lap, at the fourth to last corner, where she came together with a competitor with neither one of them wanting to give an inch. It was a high-speed, hard crash after Shelina tried to save it while in the gravel trap. Shelina was credited with 14th place for the race and is also tied for 14th in the season points standings.
July will be a busy month as Shelina gears up for the Laguna Seca WSBK/AMA round, The Mid-Ohio AMA round, and a new overseas adventure to be announced soon.
Shelina Moreda – AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley Davidson #93:
“This weekend was all about making progress; my speed is improving, I’m able to articulate better what the bike needs, and what I need as a racer. I have to thank ChiliPepper Racing and Vet Motorsports for their support. I'm so thankful for my strong gear from AXO, Arai and Impact Safe-T Armor and the protection they provided. As a Dairy Farmer, I also have to thank Milk for building strong bones. I have to say that the race fans up on that hill were really encouraging, cheering when I got up and waved. Thank you everyone for your constant support and encouragement, it helps me so much. I can't wait to get back on that big ol' pig of mine, we sure were having fun together today.”
Paul Diener- Chili Pepper Racing technical consultant:
"Shelina was passing for 11th place and she crashed – I’m tickled to death because it shows she is pushing. She is going faster, and has almost broken into the top 10! Of course crashing is a bummer but this one shows that she is making progress.”
