Round Two Report
Hughes, who missed the first round while still
getting settled after making the move into a new
home, was glad to be back in RMURA competition.
After missing qualifying, Hughes drove through
the field to finish second in the first moto,
but an overheating problem slowed his charge in
the second moto and he finished third.
made his debut at Round 2 & finished
“I missed the qualifying, so I started at the
very back in the first moto,” said Hughes. “That
was quite a battle going through from the back.
There are some really good drivers out here. In
the second moto, I got the holeshot. It was fun
battling with Chris and Dillon, but on the sixth
lap, the car went into limp mode due to overheating.
The series has grown huge from last year. Dillon
was fun to battle with and Chris and I have always
battled. I like the two-moto format. I hope they
stick with it.”
In the SXS Youth races, Jacob Goodrich beat out
Dwight Hughes’ son Connor to take the victory.
Hayden Defeyter was third.
