Press Release –
KTM’s Tim Farr extended his win streak with his fifth win in a row at round 7 of the ATVA Extreme Dirt Track Series at the Tri-City Speedway this past weekend.
Tim Farr, reigning Pro ATV Champion, received the last pick on the line for his heat race. Farr decided to start on the far inside from which he was able to pull out into fourth position from the start. He quickly made a pass in the sweeper for third.
The Tri-City Speedway track included two technical option lanes which fed the riders into the infield for several high-speed pass options. On the next lap, Farr took one of the option lanes and was able to steal second position.
He then set his sights on leader Aaron Reisig but was unable to make the pass before time ran out. Farr finished second in his heat.
With the weather report calling for rain showers the Pro Show was moved forward in an attempt to beat the arrival of the rain. As Farr headed to the staging area for his main event, the rain began to fall causing a slight delay.
As the lights turned green Farr came out third around the first turn following closely behind Darin Ogden and Bryon Partee. As the light rain continued to fall on the track Farr continued to follow behind Partee until he made a solid pass coming out of the first option lane.
Meanwhile, Ogden had built up quite a lead with a gap that the crowd thought might be too hard to overcome. Farr didn’t give up hope and continued to charge on the wet soil.
To everyone’s surprise Farr cut Ogden’s lead in half after one lap. On the following lap, Farr moved up on Ogden’s rear bumper. The two remained close as Farr continued to pressure Ogden.
With five laps remaining, Farr took the option lane coming out of turn two and made his move. The two were side by side as the lanes narrowed back into one, but Farr was able to hold on the gas longer and grabbed the inside line to take over the lead.
In the remaining laps Farr stretched out his lead to take home the win and his second Pro ATV title in two weeks.
This win secured the ATVA EDT Championship one round early for Farr. Congratulations to Farr and KTM for a successful season and their second championship of the year aboard the new KTM Sport ATV!
