Press Release –
Harold “Bumblebee” Goodman is now “Four for Four” in the Pro Lites Class of the 2009 AMA / ATVA Extreme Dirt Track National ATV Racing Series and just shy of that (three out of four) in the Pro Division.
The event was held at Pine Lake Track at Ashtabula, Ohio where Goodman has won races in each of the last three decades.
“The Bee” went into the weekend with the fastest heat time (by five seconds) in the Pro Class. After a restart, Harold actually managed to pull two holeshots in the main.
He was able to stay in front for the win throughout the 20-lap race in spite of having Michael Coburn on his tail. The Pro Lites class was the same story – out in front and not budging.
“My Yoshimura Honda TRX450R is working really well. The whole combination that I’ve go set up right now is giving me great starts both in motocross and dirt track,” Goodman said. “I’m feeling pretty good right now as everything is going as planned.”
The Yoshimura-equipped rider is pretty much walking away with both classes in the series, with only two rounds left to go.
He has a ten-point lead in the Pro Class and a 26 point lead in the Lites.
If he succeeds, this will be his third Extreme Dirt Track Championship in both classes.
