Race Report for Florida & Georgia
CASAR, NC, March 16, 2011 – Rounds one and two of the GNCC series were good to the DeRisi Racing crew. The new pit setup, wrapped trailer, and the overall running of the DeRisi Racing Team has turned some heads over the past two weeks. “Being able to show our sponsors how dedicated we are and how much it means to promote their products means a ton to me. If nothing else, our sponsors will be supported to the best of my ability” said Santo DeRisi, owner of DeRisi Racing Inc.
DeRisi rider Eric Hoyland has had his own share of success, grabbing the hole shot in Florida which led him to a third place podium finish. He currently holds down fourth in the XC2 ProAm point standing’s which is a great start to the season in such a highly competitive class. “I am proud of Eric; he has shown he has the capability to run up front. We had a mishap in Georgia on the start but he was able to regroup and charge forward which allowed him to come away with a solid finish” says DeRisi.
In addition, DeRisi rider David Reeves of the Junior A class was able to have an extremely strong race in Florida, earning second. Georgia was not as kind; he unfortunately ran into trouble with his axle bearings which forced him to end his day early. All in all, David currently sits in eighth place in the Junior A class. “David had a great race in Florida and unfortunately we had issues with his axle in Georgia, but I am confident he will be back up front in round three” said DeRisi.
The second Junior A rider of DeRisi Racing, Luke Reeves, also had an impressive start to the 2011 GNCC season nailing a sixth place finish in the sands of Florida followed by a fourth place finish in Georgia. This gives Luke the third place spot in the Junior A points standing’s. “Luke really rode consistent the past two rounds and it paid off for him. I foresee him being a contender for a top five finish in each event this year” said DeRisi.
“We are truly looking forward to the rest of the year; we are excited about a few things we are working on such as an addition of a flat screen which will be mounted on our trailer. It will allow us to watch racing video’s, and break out the Xbox. Look for a press release in the near future on DeRisi Racing sponsored Xbox tournaments. It is going to be a fun year!” said DeRisi “I honestly cannot thank our supporters enough; Rath Racing, Fox Shox, GBC Tires, IMS Products, HMF, HiPer Technology, GPR, Fasst Co, DC Cycle, Wiseco, Maier, Twin Air, DP Brakes, G4 Graphics, PowerMadd, Motion Pro, Quad Tech, Albright Motorsports, Spider Grips, Silkolene, Hilltop Motorsports, Fly Racing, Scott Goggles and Liquid Performance.
