Beebe handed it off to young team member Evan Shows (KTM) who impressively fought his way into second place at one point.

We want to stress
that the purpose of this event is to determine the best
race series - not necessarily the best bike
manufacturer or individual rider. Teams will be
asked to choose which series
they're representing when signing up. We know this will
take hard work and time but we'll do our best to grow
this annual event into a true indication of which series
in AMERICA can put together the fastest, toughest, most
consistent 3-rider team! All skill levels are
encouraged to represent their series, not just the top pro
