Barcia Wins East Coast Supercross Opener
With Monster Energy Supercross in Houston, Team AMSOIL rider Justin Barcia won a 15-lap duel with Dean Wilson at Reliant Stadium on Saturday night to put his GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda at the top of the podium for the first time this season "How was that race to watch?" Barcia asked after the victory. "It must've been awesome because it was so intense to race in." As glorious as Barcia's night was, the rest of the evening was bittersweet for the GEICO squad. Supercross rider Kevin Windham got the holeshot in his main and led 11 laps before suffering a cartwheeling crash and finished 19th. GEICO Honda's other Lites rider, Blake Wharton, was run off the track while in third place in the Main, but recovered to finish the race sixth. For Barcia it was a grand way to start the season following a 2010 season that had a lot of ups and downs. "The bike was putting the power to the ground," Barcia said. "It was such an intense battle. When I was riding I was saying, 'Woah this is gnarly.' We had to watch our back every corner because we didn't know what each other was going to do. It was crazy." The night was shaping up to be just as stellar for Windham. In the main, he put down a solid start, led for 11 laps, and had as much as a 4.5-second lead over second place (and eventual winner) Trey Canard before disaster struck. Windham was just past the finish line on lap 12 and had just cleared a small jump when he landed cross-ways in a rut on the track. Bike and rider cartwheeled from there with the bike eventually landing on top of a stunned Windham once it all came to a stop. The 17-year veteran was roughed up and suffered a slight concussion from the impact, but had no broken bones. The Monster Energy Supercross Series goes back to the West Coast for a week with a trip to San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium on Feb. 19. Lites West riders Eli Tomac and Jimmy DeCotis will resume their seasons at that venue. Barcia and Wharton won't race again until the Atlanta stop on Feb. 26. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL

Tomac Gets Great Start In L.A.
Round three of Monster Energy Supercross brought the nationwide tour to Dodger Stadium for the first time last Saturday and Team AMSOIL rider Eli Tomac was looking for his first career podium. Tomac, who has been riding fast in his rookie supercross campaign but was besieged by poor starts in the first two rounds, was quick on the throttle in Los Angeles. The former Loretta Lynn's Amateur champion started third in the West Coast Lites main and after a few turns had moved into second. From there he would pressure race leader Cole Seely, while being pressured from a handful of riders behind him. While Seely extended his lead, Tomac fought off the competition and picked up his first pro podium. Tomac's teammate James Decotis finished eighth in the Lites class and Kevin Windham finished sixth in the 450 Supercross class. AMSOIL is the Exclusive Official Oil of Monster Energy Supercross. Round four heads to Oakland, Calif. The Oakland round of racing will air on CBS next Sunday morning. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL
The Four Horsemen of Snocross
If you ever get the chance to attend a 2010-11 AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series race in person, you will walk away with one thing: these guys are fast. Especially those guys up front. You know, the guys with AMSOIL across their chests. Snocross is an extreme racing sport. Heavy machines with lots of horsepower on tracks that change from lap-to-lap. Leading the way in this year's version of the ACSS are the Champion, the Young Gun the Thrasher and the G.O.A.T. All four guys are showing off speeds maybe never witnessed before on a snocross track. Tucker Hibbert is considered the best to ever ride a snowmobile, and he's proving it week-in and week-out. But the other three guys, Ross Martin, Tim Trembley and Robbie Malinoski are going bar-to-bar with Hibbert this season and all three are starting to see cracks in his armor. Martin and Malinoski, (along with Ski Doo's Tim Trembley) are the two to focus on with just three rounds remaining. Martin has already taken down the G.O.A.T. twice this year. Once in Fargo (Pro Super Stock) and again in Detroit in Pro Open. The AMSOIL rider, (Judnick Motorsports), is just three points out of the Pro Super Stock lead. Malinoski, the veteran rider for the AMSOIL/Scheuring Speed Sports team, is back to his old was was and reinvigorating the "Thrasher" mentality that won him two championships a few years ago. In Detroit, Hibbert pressured Malinoski hard for the final five laps, but Malinoski didn't budge and took home the final podium spot in Pro Open. It's been a long time since Hibbert missed a podium, and he won't miss many more over the final three weekends of racing that start in Hayward, Wis. this Saturday-Sunday. But the pack is gaining ground, and these four riders are putting on one heck of a show. One you might want to see in person. Until then, we'll see you at the track, Team AMSOIL

The AMSOIL/Arctic Cat driver will head to Weyauwega, Wis. for the Fire on Ice event this weekend. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL
Tomac Delivers First Career Win in San Diego
Team AMSOIL rider Eli Tomac, of Cortez, Colo., captured his first career Monster Energy Supercross victory in the Western Regional Supercross Lites class in a rainy San Diego over the weekend. As the gates dropped on the Supercross Lites class main event, Tomac grabbed the holeshot and never looked back, leading wire-to-wire with a convincing win. ?The first five laps I just put my head down and pulled away. It was kind of crazy,? said Tomac, who won by more than 10 seconds. ?The track was really tricky and slippery. I got a little nervous out (front), but overall it was really good. I?ve learned a lot this season and I?ve gotten a lot better in recent weeks.? The win moved Tomac closer to the overall points lead as he now sits third overall. Tomac will have to wait a few weeks before racing again as the series heads to Atlanta for round two of the East Coast Lites championship this Saturday. Until then, we'll see you at the races.
Wanderscheid Wins Record Fourth AMSOIL World Championship
Sunday marked the 48th running of the AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River, Wis., and this one will have the industry buzzing for weeks to come. Team AMSOIL racer P. J. Wanderschied now stands alone as the Derby's only four-time champion after a hard-fought battle with another AMSOIL-backed driver, Gary Moyle. Officials at the AMSOIL Derby Track shook things up this year by changing the format of the WC race from a 25-lap race to a 30-lap race split into two sections. Drivers raced 15 laps, had a five-minute pit session to change carbides, add lubricants and fuel and check the sled over. Then the race resumed with a staggered start according to how drivers finished the first 15-lap session. Wanderscheid earned the pole position by winning the Sweet 16 race during Friday Night Thunder, but it was Moyle who jumped out to an early lead on lap one with Wanderscheid following close behind. The Houghton, Mich. native led from flag to flag as the first 15 laps closed with no red flags and Wanderscheid only narrowing the gap slightly around lap 13. The race resumed after the mandatory pit-stop and fans were treated to an epic battle between Moyle and Wanderscheid as the two exchanged the lead a number of times until Wanderscheid finally took the lead for good on lap 29 to solidify his place in snowmobile racing history as the first four-time AMSOIL World Champion. Wanderscheid was followed on his Arctic Cat by Moyle and ice oval racing legend Jacques Villeneuve, both on Ski-Doo. The world championship weekend at the AMSOIL Derby Track also features snocross, where the podium was also dominated by Team AMSOIL drivers. It was an AMSOIL podium sweep in the Pro Stock class during Friday Night Thunder with Scheuring Speed Sports? Robbie Malinoski taking the checkers followed by Ross Martin and Mike Bauer from the Judnick Motorsports trailer. Malinoski also took third in Friday night?s Pro Open final behind young-gun Justin Broberg and third-year pro Brett Turcotte. Sunday?s Pro Stock final saw Marin finish on top, followed by Malinoski and Kaven Benoit. Malinoski?s teammate Darrin Mees finished fourth. The Pro Open final featured a fantastic battle between Marin and Turcotte, culminating with an awe-inspiring charge by Martin from the final turn to the finish line for the win. Martin was followed by Turcotte, Broberg and Malinoski. Mees finished sixth. It was a fantastic weekend for Team AMSOIL with riders on the podium in every final and world championships in snocross and ice ovals. Wanderscheid?s feat is truly special and will solidify his position in history as one of the sport?s best. Congratulations, P.J.
