DERISI RACING RACE REPORT – STEELE CREEK
CASAR, NC, March 29, 2011 – Three rounds are down in the 2011 GNCC schedule and the DeRisi Racing crew is happy with the great start they have had to their season. “I can’t believe three rounds are already finished, we did have a few setbacks but all in all I can’t be happier with the team’s performance” said Santo DeRisi, Owner of DeRisi Racing Inc.
All three DeRisi riders had impressive races this past weekend at Round three of the GNCC Series. XC2 ProAm competitor Eric Hoyland jumped off to a great start. After four laps of racing, Eric’s pace kept him pushing forward and kept him ahead of many of his competitors. Heading into the last lap he was in the second place position behind competitor Walker Fowler. During that lap Hoyland would drop back to third place within a few miles of the finish line. “The Steele Creek track was tough but it was not unbearable; I cannot say enough about the suspension setup Santo has me running right now” said Hoyland “each race it seems like it gets better and better.”
In addition to a strong XC2 ProAm finish, DeRisi rider David Reeves of the Junior A 22+ class was able to have an extremely impressive race. After a good start David was able to capitalize at the end of the day to take home his first win of the 2011 season. Not only did he win but he also secured the top amateur overall for the event. “David truly rode awesome this past weekend. I knew he had it in him and I can only see this happening as we continue to push through the season” said DeRisi.
The good fortune of the weekend did not stop there; fellow Junior A 22+ competitor Luke Reeves had some success of his own. Grabbing the holeshot and leading the race early allowed Luke to push forward and run with the top riders. Luke would make great decisions and put in a great ride which landed him a third place finish, a mere minute behind his teammate and the second place finisher. “It was a good day” said Reeves “I pushed all day and focused on not making any mistakes and it paid off.”
“As it stands right now all of my primary riders are in the top five in the points within their classes and I could not be happier with that. I also want to take a moment to mention the great ride College A racer Braden Henthorn had this past weekend. He is definitely going to be a contender in the College A class this year and someone I am looking forward to continuing a partnership with.” said DeRisi. “As always I am so thankful for the support of the following companies; Rath Racing, Fox Shox, GBC Tires, IMS Products, HMF, HiPer Technology, Power Bar, 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.
