He definitely likes to keep people in suspense

Despite two second place finishes in three years, the track at the Fly Racing ATV Supercross in Daytona definitely keeps Joel Hetrick honest. A massive crash in 2016 resulted in an 18th place finish, which gave him a huge deficit to try and overcome throughout the rest of the year. In 2017, after leading for much of the race, Hetrick bobbled on a turn and caught a banner, ultimately stalling and allowing several racers by. He would recover and eventually land in second place, but it was hard fought. Fortunately this year Hetrick managed to run a clean race all the way to a second place finish but he did have a little bit of excitement during practice.
