The riders did six runs on the downhill ramp that passes over the stadium’s seats from the concourse to see if adjustments were necessary to the first dirt section. The riders also had the opportunity to try three full dirt Supermoto course runs.

The course is half dirt and half asphalt. The paved section circles around the pit areas in the Qualcomm parking lot. “I jumped at the chance when asked to do the test run with Mark and Brandon,” said Lewis. “That is a super steep downhill ramp leading into the stadium and the technical dirt section.”

The Supermoto final could be determined by the riders who can be perfect on the technical dirt sections and push it on the asphalt. Lewis will campaign the Xbux/AMA Supermoto Championship in the Lites Class along with other races.

Lewis uses K&N Engineering products. “I’ve used K&N filters since I was about 7-years-old,” he said. “K&N air filters help my engines breathe better and run faster. They also keep the dirt out of my engines on and off the track.”
