Hahn Earns Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Point In Southwick

GEICO Honda rider Wil Hahn can take pride in his performance at Saturday's Moto-X 338 National despite not finishing either of the 250cc motos because he still put some distance on the field in the Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Championship.

Hahn secured his third consecutive holeshot by getting away first in Moto 1, extending his lead to three points over six riders. One of the riders tied for second is Ken Roczen, who scored his first holeshot of the season in Moto 2.

"Another holeshot," Hahn said. "That started off the weekend awesome. It just kind of played out the way it did, and there's not much you can do about it. Sometimes all you can do is put a smile on your face and look forward to the next one."

Hahn dropped out of the first moto after five laps and didn't even get a chance to claim another holeshot when his bike quit on the site lap. Still, he maintains the edge for the Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Championship at the halfway point of the motocross season.

"I've always taken pride in my starts," Hahn said. "Now that there's a pretty big emphasis on it, I think I'm even more focused. I'm going after that 15 grand."

Justin Barcia remains on top in the 450cc class despite not getting a holeshot on Saturday.

Those honors went to James Stewart in Moto 1 and Ryan Dungey in Moto 2. Stewart crashed out of the first moto, and Dungey went on to record a second-place finish and an overall victory.

"That's my first holeshot of the year," Dungey said. "That's pretty cool."

Roczen used a holeshot to run away to a 250cc victory in Moto 2.

"I think that was the first time I had a holeshot in I don't know how long," Roczen said. "That felt really good."

Points for the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship are earned in every moto in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The first moto is worth one point, the second moto awards two points, and any rider who takes both holeshots at the same race receives a bonus point. At the end of the year, the top rider in the 450cc class will be paid $25,000 while the best 250cc rider gets $15,000.

The series resumes next Saturday with the RedBud National in Buchanan, Mich.

Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Championship points after five events:
450 class -- 1. Justin Barcia, 7 points; 2. James Stewart, 5; 3. Mike Alessi, 4; 4t. Ryan Dungey, 2; 4t. Josh Grant, 2; 6. Ryan Villopoto, 1

250 class -- 1. Wil Hahn, 5 points; 2t. Zach Bell, 2; 2t. Jeremy Martin, 2; 2t. Marvin Musquin, 2; 2t. Zach Osborne, 2; 2t. Ken Roczen, 2; 2t. Eli Tomac, 2; 8t. Blake Baggett, 1; 8t. Justin Bogle, 1
