Spokane, Wash. (June 10, 2009) – MotoConcepts Racing (MCRMX) completed round three of the AMA Lucas Oil Motocross Championship in Freestone, TX this past weekend with mixed results.  MCRMX placed riders in the top ten, top twenty and top thirty in the 450 class.

Weston Peick (pronounced pike) led the way for MCRMX with his second 9th place overall finish, of the young series.  Peick, who joined MCRMX after a stellar performance at Glen Helen, finished the first moto in 9th.  In moto two the California native rode with the top ten the entire race and finished 11th.  Anyone watching number 631 in Texas was sure to notice Peick’s hard nose riding style and tireless pursuit of anyone he trails.  After three rounds of racing, Peick sits in 14th overall for the season. 

“Weston had another impressive weekend and is quickly getting some attention out there,” stated Team Manager Steve Lamson.

Jeff Alessi, who has moved up from the 250 West Supercross class to the 450 this summer, had a tough first moto injuring his foot and finished 29th.  Number 801 got things turned around in moto two though and finished 15th for a 20th overall on the day.  MCRMX was sad to learn about the injury this week to Jeff’s brother and point’s leader Mike Alessi.  Our thoughts go out to the Alessi family for a speedy recovery.   

Kentucky native Tyler Bowers had a strong start to the day and qualified 16th overall.  Unfortunately the motos were not as kind and Bowers posted a 23rd in moto one and a 30th in moto two, for a 30th overall.  Number 911 will look to get back on track this weekend at High Point.

Vince Friese, the lone 250 rider for MCRMX, also had a tough event and will look to get back in the top 20 this coming weekend at High Point.  Number 719 finished 24th and 28th respectively in the motos, for 28th overall on the day.
