Pure Attitude Racing head to the final three rounds of the MotoAmerica Championship after an emotional and challenging weekend at Brainerd International Raceway in Minnesota.
Looking to build on their successes at The Ridge and Laguna Seca it was an encouraging start to the weekend for team but all thoughts about what happened on track pails into insignificance following the tragic loss of fellow MotoAmerica competitor Scott Briody on Friday afternoon. The entire Pure Attitude team sends its deepest condolences to Scott’s family and friends, his team and the entire MotoAmerica paddock.
On track the team suffered a double DNF in Twins Cup with Liam MacDonald suffering a technical issue moments before lights out and Trevor Standish crashing out of P11 on the final lap. Both riders had shown pace with Liam especially looking as though a top eight challenge was possible. Chase Black qualified on the second row of the grid in Junior Cup.
The team will now regroup ahead of the next event in Pittsburgh in three weeks.
“I made a good start, and the race was going well, and I was really enjoying riding the bike. I was running eleventh but with half a lap to go I went. I am not entirely sure what happened, but I got run over and am a bit second hand. I want to thank the medical staff at the track and at the hospital and everyone who enquired about me. I will be back stronger but right now I want to send my prayers and thoughts to the Scott’s
family. It’s been a tough weekend.”
