Yoshimura's Hahn Extends His Points Lead After Podium in Indy 
AMA Supercross. Indianapolis, IN

Yoshimura backed GIECO Honda's Wil Hahn and his 250SX East title rival Marvin Musquin started their main event at the back of the pack after some first turn madness caused by wayward Tuff Blocks. The chase was on for the series leaders as they made a charge to the front of the pack. After only a third of the race laps had transpired, the duo had made it up to the top ten with Hahn following Musquin's lead to the front. In the last few laps they passed into the top five and on the last lap race leader Blake Warton crashed, shuffling Hahn up to the final podium spot behind Kyle Peters and race winner Musquin. Hahn now has a nine-point series lead over Musquin who moved in to second place in the standings after title contender Dean Wilson crashed out of the night in his heat race.

 

I the 450SX class, Yoshimura Suzuki's James Stewart lead the night with an easy heat race victory - his seventh heat win of the season. The 450SX main was action packed with Stewart moving into the lead on lap two with series leader Ryan Villopoto soon on his tail. A few laps into the race Stewart made a costly mistake by stalling his bike in a rut, which dropped him back before he could restart. Stewart dropped outside the top five, but later passed back Short and Millsaps to finish on the podium in third.

 

The Yoshimura backed GEICO Honda riders had mixed results on the night. Teammates Justin Barcia and Trey Canard made contact in mid air with Canard going down hard. He was bruised but not broken, which was great news for the rider still recovering from last year's big crash.   Eli Tomac finished his East Coast swing with a solid 9th place finish.

 

RCH Suzuki's Broc Tickle recovered strongly from a first turn crash to a 10th place finish and now 10th place in the series points. His RCH teammate Josh Hill also recorded a season best 12th place.

RS9 DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM

The RS-9's parallelogram-shaped muffler body increases muffler volume over the stock system, resulting in better throttle response and improved noise cancellation. Dual setup enables us to position these mufflers closer to the bike's center of gravity (mass centralization) resulting in better handling for the rider. An additional benefit of the mass centralization process is decreasing potential for muffler damage in the event of crash.

RS-9 not only makes more power and torque possible, but does it more quietly than single systems. The uniquely sculpted Carbon Fiber end-caps feature a Tunable Insert System, able to fine-tune power delivery and decibel levels to rider specifications.  AMA Pro and Amateur Sound Legal.
