FlowVision: Supercross season is here and everyone is amped to have fans back into the stands for 2021!
The Ronnie Prado Company, Jones Powersports, Proverbial Contracting Kawasaki team with 450 SX rider Scotty Wennerstrom is excited to get the season started in their home state of Texas! A great venue with great dirt set the stage for the first opening round outside of California in 20+ years!
“Super excited to have the first 3 rounds in Texas for the start of the season” said Scotty who is a native Texan.
Houston 1 recap:
An easy designed track turned treacherous quickly at round 1 with lots of moisture in the dirt. After struggling with the longest rhythm section on the track, Scotty came up just short of qualifying. But a lot was learned and Scotty went immediately to work the following morning at his home practice track. “Huge benefit to work on my weaknesses being so close to home for these first few Texas races”.
A good day of training had Scotty a bit more dialed in going into the quickly approaching round 2.
Houston 2 recap:
For the first time in history, Supercross took place on a Tuesday! A better flowing track and slightly drier dirt greeted the riders for the 2nd round at NRG STADIUM. Scotty attacked the track immediately in untimed practice by dialing in the rhythm sections quickly and improving on what was his weak point just 3 days prior.
A much more difficult set of whoops ended up being the difference in missing the cut by two-tenths of second. “I never executed the whoops well at the end of my hot laps which was all on me” Scotty remarked on his round 2 performance. “All in all Improvements were made from round 1 and just needing to put it all together is the next step to reaching our goals”
Houston 3 recap:
“Close but no Cigar” is the best way to sum up round 3 for Scotty and the team! While inside qualifying position after the first timed session, Scotty was never able to string together a clean lap on a faster track and got bumped out for the third race in a row. “I felt good on the bike and with my riding today, but just couldn’t get through the other riders cleanly enough to get a lap time near my potential”.
“Definitely frustrated to lose valuable time in key sections of the track from downed riders or riders on a slow lap, but that’s how it is sometimes and we just have to make it happen anyway” Scotty said about a frustrating end to the 3 race run in Houston.
With 14 races to go, Scotty is safe and healthy heading into rounds 4-6 starting next Saturday in Indianapolis, Indiana!
Thanks to all our team partners and supporters who make this all Possible!
