“It was really an incredible day,” said Mike Cafro, MCR Team Manager. “Beau’s original strategy for the final round was to ride smart and consistent. He wanted to finish in the top ten, which was all he needed to take the championship. That strategy was blown out of the water when Beau came down hard in the whoops of the third lap.”

Baron’s bike cut out and would not restart. “I thought it was all over,” said Baron. “I was sitting there on the side of the track and then Mike came and towed me back to the pits so we could fix the bike.”

The team worked hard to get Baron back on the track where he made a charge to 11th place. “We wanted to make sure Beau was secure enough to take the championship, so we pulled rider Josh Row off in the last lap,” said Cafro. “This put Beau in tenth place which gave him a little extra security.”

Baron secured the championship. “After everything that happened out there it was an incredible feeling to win,” said Baron. “The whole team came through for me. I could not have done it without them.”

Even though Row was pulled off in the last lap, he ended his season in fifth place in the series points. “Josh has done a great job and is really an asset to the team,” said Cafro.

MRC Team Rider Julie Russell finished second in the Women’s A Class championship points chase. “She worked hard all year and it showed,” said Cafro. “Her lap times became faster at each race.”

Team MCR uses K&N air and oil filters, part numbers RU-4740, KN-116 and HA-4506-T. “K&N is our biggest defense against dust and dirt,” said Cafro. “K&N is always the one product we don’t have to worry about. K&N performs every time.”

Over the next few weeks the team will take some time off before they begin to prepare for the 2010 season. “We’ll be back in the New Year ready to defend our championship,” said Cafro.
