For the 250SX East’s first go at the new Triple Crown format in Atlanta, hopes were high for the Decotis camp to break through in one of the night’s three main events. A multi-time heat race winner, Jimmy D’s sprint speed is top notch and everyone knew he’d be a contender in the short form races.
Unfortunately, bad starts plagued the evening for the no. 47 JGR Suzuki. From two back of the pack starts and first turn pile-up, Jimmy was forced to charge through the field in each of the three mains. It was a hectic format and a chaotic race for the 250 East riders experiencing the three sprint mains for the first time. Jimmy plowed his way through back runners to earn two top ten finishes in the three mains, eventually carding 9-14-8 finishes for 10th overall on the evening. Though Jimmy D remains a consistent top 10 rider, he’s looking to repeat his podium performance from the first round of the series. After three rounds, Jimmy sits fifth in 250SX East series points.
