IB Corp Riders Place 8TH and 13TH, Best Result for the 2017 Supercross Season
PRESS INFORMATION, 02/04/2017
Round 6 at Dallas Texas AT&T Stadium, IB CORP RACING started the event with Cole Martinez 11th place and newly christened rider Justin Hoeft racing his second event in his Supercross career. Heat races were no obstacle for both riders with an immediate qualification for each rider.
The night show also had the same pace as the qualifiers with well timed gate starts for both riders. Cole Martinez would sit in 5th place for several laps until making a mistake and mistiming the rhythm sections and going off track. Martinez would recover to finish in 8th place overall, his best result all year. Justin Hoeft’s second race in Supercross would have a 13th result and confirm his skill in Motocross would bridge to racing in an arena bettering his previous result of 17th in the Main Event.
Good results don’t come without a cost. Justin Hoeft’s bike was torn down at the end of the evening by the AMA to inspect for foul play. The performance of the bikes and pilots has raised flags throughout the industry and IB CORP RACING has began to make a name for themselves and perhaps becoming the top privateer team in Supercross Lites. With the addition of a New Mechanic for #244 Justin Hoeft, Braden, 19, being coached and trained by Brent “China” Myron to work on becoming a top 3 team in the 2018 season.
The team was honored to have team owner Jorge Cherrez enjoy the event and visit the team to see how they have developed. According to Team Manager Ryan “Ryno” Hughes, he believes that the team is progressing quite well for having only two months to put together the riders, team, gear and access credentials to create a documentary. IB CORP RACING will now take a racing hiatus to continue to train and prepare for Seattle in 6 weeks focusing on fitness and racing technique under the direction of Ryno.
