Byers Motorsports put on a tremendous show in front of a large crowd at the Georgian Cup Snowcross in Barrie, Ontario. Byers Motorsports had many family, friends and fans make the 30 min drive from Orillia to cheer the team on for the 3-day event. The weekend started off with Friday Night racing under the lights, one of the two events having night races this year.
Kyle Byers returned to the racing scene for his first race this year competing in the Sport 600 class. With only one day of practice before coming to Barrie, Kyle came out flying grabbing the holeshot in both qualifying races, finishing 2nd and 5th respectively. Kyle started backrow for the final and ran a great race finishing 10th.
Once again, Kyle had strong qualifying runs in Sundays Sport 600. He didn’t get great starts but picked fast lines and made a hard charge on the final lap placing 4th and 5th in the Moto’s. Struggling with having backrow starts in the final, Kyle rode hard coming across the checkered in 12th.
“It feels good to be back on the sled again and I’m happy to have made the finals; that’s half the battle in a class this big.” Kyle said after Sundays final.
Jamie Byers started the weekend off Friday night on the Mod sled in the Pro-Lite Open class. Jamie started the weekend off right with a 1st and 2nd in the Qualifying races.
In the final, Jamie got a great start coming out in 2nd where he ran the first couple laps before getting tagged from behind coming out of a corner spinning him sideways.
Jamie was able to stay on the sled, keep it upright and come back into the race in 6th with 4 laps to go. With the adrenaline pumping, he charged his way up to 4th for the finish.
In Saturday’s racing action, Jamie pulled the Holeshot in Pro-Lite Stock Moto 1 on his Polaris IQ. Jamie almost came off the sled in the technical back rhythm section falling back to 3rd but came back to 2nd for the finish.
He finished 2nd in Moto 2 as well, qualifying 3rd for the Stock Final. He got a great start pulling out in 2nd out of the first corner and held on for the Podium finish.
With the sun shining, Jamie brought the Mod sled back out for Sunday’s Pro-Lite Open. In Moto 1, Jamie grabbed the holeshot and picked a fast line through the back rhythm section winning the Moto with a good margin over 2nd.
After making a last lap pass, Jamie finished 2nd in Moto 2 and qualified 2nd in final. Jamie was 6th into the 1st corner but had the inside line and charged down the back stretch getting him near the front and once again finished on the Podium in 3rd.
“It was a good points weekend for us and pumped to have made it onto the Podium twice in front of friends and family.” Jamie said following the weekend. “The Polaris sleds worked great and the CSRA was able to build a nice, technical track despite the warm temperatures.”
The next event for Byers Motorsports is in Louisville, Quebec for CSRA National Round 4.
