Winning Streak | Big 6 Taft Grand Prix

Round two of the District 37 Big 6 Grand Prix Series presented by MSR hit Honolulu Hills Raceway in Taft, California, this past weekend, and the Fasthouse riders cleaned up. The course was a mixture of high-speed and motocross, offering an excellent mix of conditions to challenge the racers. And thanks to the amazingly warm weather that California has right now, the conditions were nothing short of epic.

Fresh off his big win at the opening round in Adelanto, Yamaha-mounted Blayne Thompson took home his second consecutive victory in the premiere pro class, besting defending Champion Colton Udall. Thompson got off to a third-place start and after settling into that position, he put his head down to make a couple passes into the lead. “The track was for sure high speed,” Blayne said. “And all the rain that has fallen over the past couple of weeks caused the soil to get really soft and rutted everywhere. I won the first round, and I knew I could do it again. I just kept telling myself that and I tried to keep it up front the whole time. I didn’t think it was going to be this hard, but we still got it done.”

Fellow Fasthouse rider Trevor Stewart also had an amazing ride. Aboard a fresh new Gasper Racing supported TM250, Stewart topped the Pro II class, finishing inside the top-10 overall with a solid ninth. Trevor plans to continue racing the TM in future rounds.
