Congrats to Stevie Bonsey for Winning the Opening Rounds of the Gene Romero West Coast Flat Track Series in Vegas!
Round 12 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com season saw the guys and gals of The Rolling Thunder Show hit the track at the Multipurpose Arena at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in what would be the final National short track at the Springfield facility for the foreseeable future.
One of those stars on-hand from his home in Salinas, CA. was Stevie Bonsey on his #80 Confused Clothing/Alpinestars/Arai/Mack Daddy Racing-sponsored Honda CRF450R. The fine young man that hails from the same area as past legends Doug Chandler, Ricky Graham and a handful of other greats in the greatest racing series on wheels in the world, had a tough night and just missed the field after working his way through his semi race.
Missing the field was not part of the program this last weekend as Bonsey took his Honda mount and magic to Las Vegas for the opening doubleheader rounds of the Gene Romero West Coast Flat Track Series, and promptly cleaned house in winning both nights over a host of National caliber riders including Brad Baker, Jake Johnson, Kayl Kolkman and Jethro Halbert, just to name a few.
This is the Californian's second year in-a-row to leave Vegas with some winning hardware after winning one of the opening rounds last year while riding for Dave Zanotti of Zanotti Racing fame. This year, Bonsey took his Confused Clothing-backed CRF450R along for the ride and came out on top for both nights.
Great job and a big congratulations to Steve Bonsey for putting on a winning clinic this past weekend. Great to hear it for you man, and can't wait to see you tearing 'em up some more this season!
