The fourth and final race of the Rockstar Energy AX Tour was held at the Molson Center in Barrie, Ontario. Home of the Barrie Colts Hockey Club, the arena has a strong hockey presence with a rich heritage of winning. On this night, two Canadian Arenacross Championships would be awarded and the first of three Triple Crown Tours would be in the books.

 

Racing with the series leading Red Plate for the third weekend in a row, Honda/GDR rider Dylan Wright had the momentum and confidence to secure this seasons AX Tour Championship. Debuting the all-new v3 helmet in Canada for the first time, and wearing it with matching Limited Edition Heritage Zebra gear, Wright had a proper ‘Beast from the East’ flash.

 

Starting strong in the heat race, Wright was mistakenly taken out while making his pass on the falling race leader.  Remounting to finish 4th, Wright advanced to the Main Event but didn’t earn a spot in the “clash for cash” to earn extra points on this valuable night.

 

With a poor gate pick in the Main Event and unable to get the holeshot, Wright was stuck in sixth place but passed his way up to third place by lap 8/15.  Knowing the title was well secured at this point of the race, Wright stayed comfortable in that position for the remainder and brought home the 2019 AX Tour MX2 Title.

 

Starting the 2019 Triple Crown series with an MX2 AX title under their belt, the Honda/GDR team will now shift all focus to the Motocross program with expectations of repeating their MX1 title as well as adding their first MX2 MX title to the resume.
