Race Report from Houston, Texas.
Coming off his second podium in the last three races, Jimmy D brought the JGR Suzuki into the Houston triple crown with some much coveted momentum. But the challenge of the three main event format had given Decotis trouble earlier in the season, so the night was an opportunity for redemption in Houston.
Off the gate in the first main event, Jimmy got into second quickly behind the eventual winner Adam Cianciarulo. It appeared that Decotis was going to latch onto Cianciarulo and even mount a challenge for the lead but that race did not pan out for the no. 64 Suzuki. Jimmy ran into some issues, running off track at one point and losing a few positions to eventually come home in sixth.
The second main event was basically the exact opposite: a miscue off the line left Jimmy buried in the field, and with a lot of work to do. But he moved quickly through the field during what turned out to be a chaotic main event with frontrunners hitting the ground left and right. Jimmy made his way into fifth by the checkered flag.
With a 6-5 going into the third and final main, Jimmy had put himself in solid position for a top five finish. Feeling the effects of two 10-minute sprint mains, Jimmy managed the race to make it across the line with another sixth. The 6-5-6 scores were good for a fifth overall on the night.
