Its sure is challenging to keep up with all the racing going on out there! The Lazer Star / Can-Am Factory Race Team season has already proved to be an exciting one.
Lazer Star Lights / Can-Am’s Josh Creamer Second Overall at ATV MX Opener – West Springfield, MA (3/25) – Josh Creamer made an exciting return to the AMA Mtn. Dew ATV MX National Championship Series by going 6-1 and earning second overall. Creamer put his Can-Am to work at the Aonia Pass opener. The race was a wash out; several inches of rain fell prior to the gate drop and turned the Georgia clay in thick, heavy mud.
In the first moto, Creamer was involved in a tangle at the first turn. He was the last racer to recover from the pile up. The former champion put his head down and made passes when he could. He raced his Can-Am from 15th on lap one to sixth position on the final lap. He turned his personal fastest lap time on the tenth lap, a 01:38.747.
The second moto looked like the Josh Creamer show. Creamer used his BCS Performance engine to grab the holeshot. He continued his charge and turned the fastest lap of the moto on lap four, an impressive 01:35.058. Creamer pushed hard, continued to hold the lead and crossed the checkers 08.748 in front of second position. His efforts paid off, giving him second overall for the race.
2013 General Tire, Mint 400 – Las Vegas, NV (3/24) – Lazer Star Lights’ Can-Am / Murray Racing Factory Team took 3rd in UTV 1900 Class at The Great Race Mint “400” out in Las Vegas Nevada, March 23, 2013. They came in close behind second with only .02 second gap, “It was a battle to the finish, for sure” commented Lazer Star Ryan Paine, “The Murray boys put on a great race out there in the new Can-Am Maverick!”
2013 WORCS ATV Racing – Round 3 – Lake Havasu, AZ (3/24) – Can-Am’s Collins Webster earned sixth for the race. Webster was last off the start and soon began to catch the pack and make passes.
“The first half of the first lap went well and then I fell off pace. I was struggling for most of the first hour,” said Webster. He was able to pick up his pace on the brutal track and finish out in sixth. Webster currently holds sixth place in the points chase.
Lazer Star’s Can-Am / Motoworks Josh Frederick had a tragic end to his race. Frederick got off to a mid-pack start and was clocking solid laps as he battled with Haagsma, Mitchell and Dillon Zimmerman. Frederick was on the motocross track on lap three when he landed in a rough hole after a jump. The landing sent him into a wreck leaving him on the track and his Can-Am in the middle of the course.
Frederick was transported to a Las Vegas Hospital and it has been reported that he has a serious back injury. The entire racing community and Lazer Star sends their thoughts and prayers to Josh and his family.
