Round 3 brought clear sunny skies and epic battles across all classes during the December 1-2, 2018 round of CVMA at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.

Bradley Ward won all but one of the Middleweight races over the weekend, with Alejandro Thermiotis taking the win in Saturday’s Supersport Middleweight race. Alejandro finished 2nd in all three of the other Middleweight races. Both Bradley and Alejandro on the Yamaha YZF-R6.

During the club’s premier race, the CVMA Shootout, presented by TrackDaz and SoCal Track Days, “Aussie Dave” Anthony ran away with the win. Noteworthy in this race was 2nd place Michael Gilbert who finished 2nd in the race during his first time racing a 1000cc Kawasaki ZX-10R. Chad Lewin, also aboard a Kawasaki ZX-10R rounded out the top 3 in the class. .

David Catalina aboard his Yamaha FZ07 was able to score wins both days in Formula Twins Racing Action.

In Ultra Lightweight action, Rocco Landers, and Torin Collins were again the stars of the weekend. These two youngsters took their respective motorcycles and mopped the floor with the competition. Rocco taking wins in 500 Supersport and Ultra Lightweight Shootout on his Kawasaki Ninja 400, and wins in Formula 2 aboard his Honda RS125. Collins on his Yamaha YZF-R3 was able to score wins in 350 Supersport both days. Also, while finishing 2nd in Saturday’s Ultra Lightweight Shootout race, Torin was able to set a new lap record for the class of a 1:55.751 aboard his Moriwaki MD250H

In Formula 40 Middleweight, Quinn Swift and Stuart Smith battled it out on their Yamaha YZF-R6’s. Quinn coming out on top both days and setting a new lap record on Sunday of 1:52.212.

More, from a press release issued by Rocco Landers' publicist:

ROCCO LANDERS ROCKETS TO 7 WINS AT CVMA ABOARD JEREMY TOYE'S KAWASAKI NINJA 400R AND A HONDA RS125 OVER THE DECEMBER 1-2, 2018 RACE WEEKEND.

This past weekend, Rocco Landers picked up and improved from where he left off at the previous October CVMA round, this time winning 7 races at the 3rd round of the CVMA Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, California.

Building off of last month's experience on the Jeremy Toye tuned Kawasaki Ninja400R.com machine, combined with new Dunlop tires that are being developed for the MotoAmerica Jr. Cup Class, Rocco lowered his Formula 2 class lap time another 1.5 seconds to a 1:55.066.

Rocco has this to say about the experience, “It was a lot of fun to race the Kawasaki Ninja400R.com machine again and help Jeremy develop it. I learned a lot and was able to go another 1.5 seconds faster. There were a few races where I had to race on some pretty worn out tires as the supply of test tires was understandably limited, yet I was still able to maintain a quick pace which was a good experience. There were some interesting races where I had to push and race against guys with much faster bikes than mine... I had to dig a little bit and get pretty crafty how to pick up the pace. We have started to collect some new sponsors for 2019, so thank you to them, and thanks a lot to all of my current sponsors listed on this press release. FULL GAS!"

Jeremy Toye says, “'Kid Roc' showed me maturity this weekend with tire management when needed and speed when needed as well."

Jeremy Toye’s past racing accolades include a podium and many strong finishes in the Macau Grand Prix, “Fastest Newcomer” in the Isle of Man, multi class wins at Pikes Peak including King of the Mountain, 2x Toyota 200 winner at Willow Springs.

Dale Kieffer with Dunlop had this to say about Rocco, "I'm very impressed with Rocco and his ability to adapt to a variety of different tires that we have thrown at him that Dunop has been developing for those small bikes. In the end, he has prevailed every race weekend with more wins and track records."

Currently, Rocco is looking for sponsors to partner with for his 2019 racing season in the Spanish European Championship racing series. If your company would like to be attached to one of the brightest, fastest kids in the American road racing scene, he can be contacted through his website or social media below.
