Spokane, Wash. (June 17, 2009) – MotoConcepts Racing (MCRMX) completed round four of the AMA Lucas Oil Motocross Championship in Mt. Morris, PA this past weekend with two riders finishing in the top 20 overall.

Jeff Alessi led the way for MCRMX with a solid day aboard his CRF450.  After qualifying an impressive 7th overall, number 801 went out and had his best moto of the young season, finishing 9th in moto one.  The California native followed that up with a great start in moto two, where he ran in second place and in the top five for a number of laps.  A broken brake lever prevented Alessi from another top ten and he had to settle for 14th in moto two.  For the day Alessi finished 11th overall and is now in 20th overall.

“Jeff really showed some speed this past weekend,” stated Team Manager Steve Lamson.  “He was strong in qualifying and had a great start in moto two.  We expect him to continue to have these types of races and be in the top ten.”

Teammate Weston Peick did not share in the same fortune as Alessi.  Engine problems kept Peick from the success he has experienced at previous races.  Number 631 finished 36th overall for the day, but still sits in 16th overall for the season.

Tyler Bowers is still looking to make a move toward the front this season and finished 28th in moto one and 25th in moto two, for 26th overall.

In the 250 class, Vince Friese finished the day in 20th overall after a 20th place finish in moto one and an 18th in moto two.  Friese is now 24th overall for the season.
