Teixeira Tech riders rack up victories in 2009
Teixeira Tech would like to thank the racers who ran its linkage and A-arms across multiple ATV racing disciplines this season. 2009 was a break out success for many new Teixeira Tech racers with class championships as well as national top ten finishes.
In GNCC racing, Duane Johnson made his strong comeback finishing #8 for the year in Pro class. Kevin Blundell raced in the Junior B Class and racked up three wins, and finished third for year. Mike Husband raced in the Vet A (30+) class and dominated with four victories and finished first in class for the year. Brandon Carter ran Vet A (30+) as well, and finished out the year with fourth in class. These top performing GNCC racers utilized the Teixeira Tech linkage for the TRX450R, which works with the stock swingarm, uses a 17.5” shock, and industry leading great ground clearance. Several of the racers also ran Teixeira Tech +1 Maximum Ground Clearance A-Arms, which held up to the abuse of cross country racing.
In GNC MX racing, a team of sisters carried the flag for Teixeira Tech. Kayle Dyer won the overall championship for the women’s class with six victories, two second place finishes and one third. Her sister, Kelsey Dyer, was able to edge out her sister at the last round of the series with her first win of the season in the women’s class in her first appearance, with Kayle finishing in second.
In a WORCS season that saw record turnouts of over 600 participants at various rounds, Justin Waters came out strong in his rookie season, running the competitive Pro Class with a 10th place for the year. Tim Shelman raced in the Pro class as well, and ended up 13th for year. Cole Fite raced Sport 15-29 B and ended up with four wins and finished second overall for the year. Cole also ran Open B and compiled two wins, two second place finishes, and two third place finishes for second overall for the year. Cole races a 250cc quad against 450 quads because he is legally too young to run a 450, but still is able to stay competitive and take wins on a smaller machine.
In the Best in the Desert (BITD) series, Doug Bergstrom not only took second overall for the year, but also took his Honda TRX450R, decked out with Teixeira Tech products to a Vegas to Reno win in the Expert class. This is a rugged series that tests both man and machine, and Teixeira Tech parts passed with high marks for durability and performance.
In other regional races, Duane Johnson teamed up with fellow Teixeira Team member, Michael Burrows to win the Pro Class at the Heartland Challenge 10 Hour Race. Josh Eaton won the AA and overall title in the Iowa state cross – country Series (IATVHSS) with four overall wins on the year. In the new Missouri state cross – country series, OXC Racing, Michael Burrows took three overall wins, and missed the title by one point. Carson Coffman took one win, and ended up with third place for the year in Pro.
