AMA Pro Supersport Champ to race Knoxville Half Mile

Pittsburgh, PA ( Sept 9 , 2011) –  2011 AMA Pro Supersport Champion and Young Gun Award recipient James "the Rocket" Rispoli will race his newly prepared RL (Ronnie Jewell Racing) powered  ANT Racing/STAR School/NationalGuard.com CRF 450 on the Knoxville, Iowa half mile and Peoria, Illinois TT this weekend. 


James “the Rocket” Rispoli;   After a long road racing season where I clinched the AMA Pro SuperSport titles, I am excited to get back in the saddle of my dirttracker and get sideways again.  My mechanic Dustin with the help of RLJ Racing of Medina, NY prepared me a fire-breathing 450 motor to race.  I heard Knoxville should be fast and I can't wait to get on the track and let it all hang out ."

Short Track - 3 Sep 2011
Dave Hoenig; Over the years the Short Track has always been pretty tough for me.  Going into this weekend I knew it could be almost make or break.  The two-day racing could really pack away some points.  If you get some momentum rolling you can just carry it on.  The May Springfield race was almost picture perfect. 
 This short track was smaller than it has ever been.  Flat, which I liked and made for better racing, but very tight in turns 3 and 4.  Qualifying did not go that well for me, but what else is new!!   We made some changes and at least I was in the front row for the Heat.  I got a good jump and was up to 2nd but Brad Baker got around me, pushing me back to 3rd.  I really wanted to be in the Dash for Cash because the points race is getting tight.  So we made some more changes for the Main Event... hoping to take us to the next step.  Well, sometimes you go forward and sometimes you go backwards.
