McThoughts: Toronto 250 East SX

McThoughts: Toronto 250 East SX By Jeff McConkey The 250 East riders came to Toronto this past weekend, and it was anyone’s game. Current points leader, #49 Martin Davalos, was not in Toronto due to personal “family reasons.” That meant that the red plate was going to a different rider for the first time this season.

Dave Blanchet Update By Billy Rainford He was all set to perform in front of his home country this past weekend at the Rogers Centre in Toronto when he got out of shape in the tricky whoops section.

The track wasn’t great and kind of looked like a game of follow the leader, but that didn’t stop the top 4 guys from putting on a great race. I, honestly, don’t think I’ve ever seen the top 4 that close for the entire race, especially at Daytona. 250
