JCR/Honda’s Preston Campbell continues to rise with 4th place finish in Lovelock, NV NHHA Rd 6
Cooler temps and beautiful weather is why October is the beginning of the west coast desert season and it makes you want to get out and RIDE! The Rimbenders MC knows this all too well and gave the AMA National Hare and Hound racers a fantastic racecourse of nearly 100 miles, laid out over seldom used northern Nevada desert.
Preston Campbell ripped a great start on his Honda CRF450X, Landing in 4th OA just after the bomb. At the 35-mile mark, Preston came through alternative Pit 1 for a splash of VP racing fuel. 1 hour and 20 minutes had passed as the racers came through the main pits, Preston maintained a solid grip on 4th. After fuel, and a fresh set of 100% goggles he was on his way for the second and final 40-mile loop. Preston finished just 1 minute off the podium in 4th overall. A season’s best for the young Honda rookie.
The RED RIDER Trackside support was on hand to help support CRF owners. The highlight of the day was when we were pulling out about 1 mile from the main pit we came across a rider pushing his CR250R. We asked if he needed gas? He said no “I lost my fuel line”! Johnny Campbell jumped into action, installed a new fuel-line, replenished his drinking water gave him a Pep Talk, and sent him back in the race!
“I started in 4th off the bomb, no big mistakes, the course was pretty fast but also had some of the best riding we have raced all year. The dry lake beds we were on were fun holding it wide open in 6th gear for 4 miles! My CRF450X worked excellently. Special thanks to Bones and Luke from Pro Circuit.” — Preston Campbell #304
“Preston continues to impress! He is doing all the right things and incrementally gaining knowledge and speed. The future looks bright for him. It’s been fun watching his progress this year. Looking forward to the final round in Lucerne Valley, CA on October 25th.” — Johnny Campbell
