ROEBLING RODEO TIGHTENS UP THE CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS

It could have been anyone’s win at the closest race yet of the NATC.

SAVANNAH, GA, July 18, 2022 – Round four of the North America Talent Cup (NATC) produced the closest racing of the season so far, with the top eight riders finishing within .5 second of each other in race one. Race two was even closer, with the top four within a tenth of a second.

His first win of the season, Alex Enriquez was able to work through the pack and finish first—just over a tenth of a second ahead of Aiden Sneed. Chris Clark rounded out the top three, with four other riders in the lead pack. It came down to race craft and patience to earn a podium among many worthy contenders.

In race two, it was a photo finish with Chris Clark beating Logan Monk to the finish line by .008. It was an incredibly close race. On the last lap, a pack of seven riders had a chance at the win all the way to the finish line.

After four rounds, the championship has tightened up. Alessandor DiMario leads with 145 points to Jesse James Shedden’s 141 points. Aiden Sneed sits in third with 100 points after a podium in race one.

The new North America Talent Cup aims to provide riders across the continent with a vital link to professional road racing. The NATC is considered a stepping-stone between the FIM MiniGP North America Series and professional series such as MotoAmerica’s™ Junior Cup or international feeder series like the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup or FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship.

The North America Talent Cup is proud to partner have partnered with WERA for round four at Roebling Road Raceway.
