Catanzaro Extends Points Lead in AMA Arenacross Lites



RENO, Nev. Night two of Arenacross from the Livestock & Events Center produced another memorable night of racing for the Babbitts Monster Energy/Ti Lube Kawasaki team as AMA Arenacross class points leader Tyler Bowers, of Danville, Ky., won his eighth race of the 2010 AMA Arenacross Series season to extend his advantage over the field. GPF Babbitts Kawasakis A.J. Catanzaro, of Middlefield, Conn., earned his fourth win of 2010 and third in a row to sweep the AMA Arenacross Lites class for the weekend and extend his Western Regional Championship points lead.



As the gates dropped on the 25-lap premier class main event, it was once again Spinechillers/Storm Lake Hondas Nathan Skaggs, of Chillicothe, Ohio, who grabbed the holeshot for the second night in a row. Bowers quickly made his move, taking over the lead and leading the rest of the way. Reigning series champion Jeff Gibson, of Thornville, Ohio, who won his first heat race of the season for Tuf Honda, held down the second position for the majority of the race until night one winner Josh Demuth, of North Richland Hills, Texas, took over the spot just before the finish. Demuths runner-up effort minimized his loss to Bowers in the standings while Gibson posted his third podium of 2010.



AMA Arenacross Series rookie Catanzaro grabbed the holeshot once again on Saturday night and led all 18 laps of the AMA Arenacross Lites main event. The current class points leader led all 36 laps of the weekend and now holds a comfortable lead in the standings with four races remaining. Foremost Insurance Yamahas Jim Neese, of Julian, N.C., finished second while Rockwell KTMs Landen Powell, South Jordan, Utah, finished third.



Bowers lead over Demuth currently sits at 17 points in the premier AMA Arenacross class while Catanzaro extended his advantage to 25 points over Reynard Mods Kawasakis, Cory Green, of Nowata, Okla., in the AMA Arenacross Lites Western Regional Championship.



The 2010 AMA Arenacross Series continues next weekend from the Mid America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa with two nights of action March 12 and 13. The gates drop on each night of action at 7:30 p.m.
