The Series is split in half during the summer. Marshall was awarded the trophy on the first day of the second half of the series. “The day started out really well,” said Chris Roberts, Marshall’s father. “He was really excited and jumped up and down with his trophy. It is almost as big as he is.”

“We use K&N Filters exclusively on Marshall’s Motorcycle,” said Roberts. “With the dry and dusty conditions at the track, we need engine protection as much as good air flow. K&N’s KA-8088 provides what we need.”

Marshall has been racing for three years and is known for his consistent finishes. In the second half of the Summer Cross Series Marshall started with a rebuilt Kawasaki. “I jetted the bike wrong and practice one ended quickly for Marshall,” said Roberts. “After a quick adjustment Marshall was flying in practice two,” said Roberts. “He had to get used to the new power in his Kawasaki 65.”

Unfortunately, two laps into the race, Marshall’s 64 went down and he was pinned under the bike. “He experienced his first ride in the EMT Mule,” said Roberts. “My son had a bruised ankle. They gave him an ice pack, and an ace bandage and Marshall went back to the track to cheer on his competition.”

Marshall’s father works for K&N Engineering as a National Accounts Manager. He also uses K&N products on his tow vehicle. “We travel back and forth between races all the time,” he said. “I haul a trailer, bikes and parts and my Nissan Titan needs extra power. With K&N’s 63-6012 on my Titan I gain an additional 11 horsepower. It makes getting to the track that much easier.”

Marshall will be back next week to continue the series.
