Kyle Partridge and Josh Hansen look back on round four in Oakland.
JOSH HANSEN (No. 100 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki) Finished 10th “A solid finish on the No. 100 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki tonight.The race went good for the results that we got. We struggled all day and could never get the bike right. I just didn’t have the comfort level that I needed today. I didn’t ride the best, but we managed to get another 10th-place ride and that’s good for the points. We’re still in the points running. (It’s) a long season. We’re looking for better results. My guys worked hard all day. We’ll take the finish and head down to Anaheim next weekend.”
KYLE PARTRIDGE (No. 83 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki) Finished 20th “Not a good night for us on the No. 83 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki. I crashed in the first practice and didn’t ride in the second (practice). I had a good Heat race and ran sixth. I went into the Main Event and crashed really hard on the first lap. I bent the bike up pretty hard and I thought that I broke my leg. Luckily, everything is OK and we’ll try to get ready for Anaheim next weekend.”
