Pascarella Rides Riders Discount Triumph 675 To New Track Record At Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Joey Pascarella continued an already solid start to 2013 when he took to the track aboard his Riders Discount sponsored Triumph 675 during the WERA West event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this past weekend. The weekend was his first race outing with the Triumph and it didn't take him long at all to get acclimated to the new bike.

On Saturday, Pascarella started his weekend out with a convincing win in Middleweight Expert. Next, he took his 675 up against a field full of liter bikes in the Heavyweight Expert race, where he put in the fastest lap of the race and ultimately ended up taking second. Sunday brought not only another win, this time in C Superstock Expert, but also a new track record of 1:15.4 for the middleweight class.

"I had a lot of fun on the Riders Discount Triumph 675 this weekend," said Pascarella after the event. "It was my first time racing with it and it took me a lot less time to adapt to it than I thought it would. In the end, I was able to break my previous track record of a 1:15.9 fairly easily when I did a 1:15.4. Overall, it was a great weekend and I can't wait to get the 2013 AMA season started!"

"We were all excited to see what Joey could do on our project Daytona 675 and Joey did not disappoint. It was a great relief for all of us to see Joey gel so well with the Triumph and it was also nice to have him know we can build a great bike for him. Riders Discount, Joey, Triumph and our growing list of sponsors are going to have a great year
