Stemper wins first Minute man of the yearApril 3, 2012 · 0 Comments
HOUSTON, Tx. April 3, 2012: Casey Stemper may be one of the youngest racers in the ADRL, but he quickly earned his place as a valid contender in the Pro Extreme Motorcycle ranks in a short amount of time. At the ADRL season opener Stemper put any questions as to his abilities to rest with the triumphant capture of his first Minute Man.
“We were really looking forward to the 2012 ADRL season,” told Stemper, “and to start the year off this way just adds to our excitement. We are shooting for the Championship, and having the ADRL season opener win under our belt will certainly help us achieve that goal.”
Stemper was one of the frontrunners throughout the weekend, qualifying second with a 4.123, and then dominating on both ends of the track on race day. In round one Stemper took out Curtis Nichols with a .035 light and a 4.127. In round two, Dave Vantine matched Stemper’s .020 light, but couldn’t stand up to Stemper’s 4.109 elapsed time. The semis brought Stemper one of the toughest competitors in PXM in Billy Vose. Vose slowed on top end and Stemper found his way into the money round with a 4.086. The final round matchup was another good one as Stemper lined up against Eric McKinney. Both entries had posted impressive numbers all day long. However, Stemper made his first win look easy as he left first and never looked back to pick up his first ADRL victory [.026, 4.084 at 171.88]
