Congrats to Draik Beauchamp
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:51:48 pm »
Last weekend MotoAmerica finished up its season with the final races at the New Jersey Motorsports Park track in Millville NJ near Atlantic City.  Draik Beauchamp ended his season in the KTM RC390 Cup series with strong midfield positions in both races finishing 10th out of a field of 27 racers.  The KTM Cup championship went to Brandon Paasch who will represent the US and MotoAmerica at the KTM Cup world final in Europe. 

Congrats to Draik on a fine result and best wishes for a successful season next year!
CHRIS

Thanks Chris. They were both hard fought 10th place finishes. He has struggled all year with qualifying and as you can imagine in spec racing, a poor starting spot makes it difficult to get with the lead group.

The great news is that he finished 11th in the points even missing two races with a broken wrist and had been offer a ride for the 2017 season on the same team!

Having a seat for the next season is always the litmus test for how the season went.  Congrats again!
