UtahSBA: Norton Wins Feature Race, Again

UtahSBA: Norton Wins Feature Race, Again

© 2024, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By UtahSBA:

Editorial Note: UtahSBA sent an email after this was originally posted to inform us that they made a factual error and Anthony Norton did not crash during the King of the Mountains race, as stated in their press release.

The Utah SportBike Association (UtahSBA) was pleased to host round three of the Utah Motorcycle Law Masters of the Mountains race series on July 6-7 on the West Course at Utah Motorsports Campus, in Grantsville, Utah.

After posting a sub 1:30 lap time at round two on this configuration, series leader and defending Champion Anthony Norton was brimming with confidence and was the rider to beat. When the dust settled after the qualifying sessions, Norton earned the top spot by posting a qualifying time of 1:29.5.  Former series Champion Brian Childree was able to card a lap time of 1:30.6 to secure second place on the grid. Visiting racer and teammate to Norton, Wyatt Ferguson, qualified third with a fast lap time of 1:31.1.

When the red light went out Norton got the holeshot and led the field into Turn One. Childree, meanwhile, was able to get the jump on Ferguson. Exiting Turn One, the running order was Norton, Childree, with Ferguson in third. The top three remained tip-to-tail for the first five laps of the race and the top three opened a sizable gap to fourth through sixth positions, which were occupied by Chris Mousley, Alex Zinaich, and Steve Marco, respectively. Childree was able to do a 1:29.8 on lap two and Ferguson was able to post a lap time of 1:30.4, also on lap two. With lap times so low Norton was unable to truly break away and open much of a gap. Unfortunately for Childree, a mistake in Turn Five on lap six led to a lowside crash. Later that same lap, Ferguson crashed in Turn 10 and brought out the red flag, meaning the race would have to restart with eight laps remaining.

The order for the restart was Norton, Mousley, Marco, and Zinaich. On the restart, Norton again got the holeshot. Behind Norton, Mousley got a poor launch and it appeared that both Marco and Zinaich would get by him. It was not to be, however, and by Turn Five of the restart Mousley was in second ahead of Marco and Zinaich.

With four laps remaining Norton had opened a sizeable lead and was putting in steady laps on his way to the eventual win. Behind Norton, the race for second between Mousley and Marco was a fierce battle. Marco tried for second no less than three times in Turn Five and even appeared to have a better drive out of Turn 10 but was thwarted by Mousley each time.

Of his race, Mousley commented, “I was hoping Marco would get tired but he just wouldn’t let go. Lap after lap he was still there. I want to thank Crossbeam Builders, JP43 Training, and Outlaw Garage.”

This was the first time on the podium for Marco, who stated, “I want to thank Trever and Adrain at The Weekend Garage, Toxic Moto, and most of all my family for all their support.”

“Awesome weekend of racing!” said Norton. “My Privateer Industries ZX-10 was on rails and the Dunlops just couldn’t be stopped. Brian and my teammate Wyatt Ferguson were on the same rubber and flying too, forcing me to be sharp. Stoked with the results. Four for four wins including the Burt Brothers King of the Mountain race, and even happier with outright pace on track for us right now. Typical racer, always hungry for more and looking forward to the next round! Huge thanks to Trackstar Performance Tire Service, Precision Fab Machinery, Crossbeam Builders, Legal Ride NV, Beast LED, and the USBA title sponsor Utah Motorcycle Law for making this whole season possible.” 

The UtahSBA wants to invite all club racers to come race for a cash purse August 3-4, 2024 at Round Four on the East Course at Utah Motorsports Campus. Last but certainly not least, the UtahSBA wishes to thank our generous sponsors, volunteers, racers, and families. Without your support club racing in Utah would be impossible.

The Utah Sport Bike Association is a Utah non-profit dedicated to promoting education, safe riding, and competition in the Intermountain West. You can find more information about the USBA, upcoming events, and schools at www.utahsba.com or find us on Facebook.
