ALBUQEURQUE, NM (February 19th, 2008) – The local kid, Kevin Johnson, made good in tonight’s Toyota AMA Arenacross class main event aboard his Team Faith, Fly Racing, Bobby J’s Yamaha. His older brother Keith finished second aboard his Fiberwise Pasta, Rock River Yamaha with Gray Davenport rounding out the top 3 on his Team Triple Effect Kawasaki .

Kevin Johnson said, “It was great to be home and race in front of my friends and family. My wife and I are expecting a child any day and she hasn’t been able to travel with me and it feels great to win with her here.” He went on to thank the crowd for all their support. Keith Johnson said about his brothers win, “I wanted to get a good hole shot so we could have a better battle, but the gate went down real quick and I barely got my bike in gear.”

In the Toyota AMA Arenacross Lites class Team Triple Effect Kawasaki rider Gray Davenport took advantage of a mechanical failure on Travis Bannister’s Race Day Performance Honda to get the win. Justin Berry rode well and finished 2nd on his Team Green Kawasaki . The last step on the box was nailed down by the Team TiLube, MotoXXX Honda rider Colt “45” Humphrey.

After the race Davenport said, “Travis and I are friends and I was sorry to see his bike break, but I’m happy to have the win.”

Racing returns next week at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville , KY.
