High Point Results
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (June 15, 2014) – High Point is one of the longest running venues on the tour, with Saturday’s event the 38th annual pro national at the facility. The late Dave Coombs opened the track located in Mt. Morris, Pa. in the fall of 1976. It is fitting that now the entire Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Series is run by the Coombs family. High Point has the distinction of being the first pro national to be featured live on NBC on June 13, 2009. MAVTV aired the first moto from Mt. Morris live, and the second moto was broadcast live by the NBC Sports Network. First motos are always streamed live on promotocross.com and both motos from each round are archived on promotocross.com.
Justin Brayton was expected to race at High Point, but after further evaluating his recovery progress he elected to take advantage of the upcoming weekend off and make his return at Muddy Creek Raceway. Josh Grant and Phil Nicoletti, with support from St. Lawrence Radiology and N-FAB raced for the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team at High Point. Grant did not get a good start when the first moto began, and checked in at 15th at the conclusion of the first lap. Nicoletti was seventh on lap one. Grant charged forward the entire race, ultimately working his way to sixth with Nicoletti eighth when the checkers were out. Grant began the second moto just outside the top-10 with Nicoletti sixth. Grant again began moving forward with Nicoletti controlling fifth place past the halfway mark. Grant again raced his way to sixth place, with Nicoletti 12th. Grant’s 6 – 6 results gave him fifth overall, with Nicoletti’s 8 – 12 finishes earning him 10th at High Point.
After a week off the series resumes at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tenn. on June 28. MAVTV will broadcast the first moto live at 1:00 p.m. (EST). The second moto will air live on NBC at 3:00 p.m. (EST). The first moto will also stream live on promotocross.com.
