Suzuki City Race Recap New Orleans SX
Goerke and Clarke finish 9th and 10th in SXs return to The Big Easy


Round 5 Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites Series
New Orleans, LA
Louisiana Super-Dome
March 14, 2009

Suzuki Citys Matt Goerke hasnt tried to hide the fact that he needed to improve his starts. In fact, last week in an interview he did with Racer X Online, Goerke said, Its been the same thing all year; Ive got to work on my starts. I have to figure out something, because if I get a start I definitely think I can run up there.

Well somehow, even after getting a bad jump out of the gate, the Suzuki City rider managed to get into the lead in the first heat of the night in New Orleans, finally putting the #34 up front. Unfortunately a mistake cost him the lead, but he did manage to hold on for third. His teammate, Steven Clarke, unfortunately got a bad jump in the heat, forcing him to go to the dreaded Last Chance Qualifier. Fortunately Clarke led from wire-to-wire, ensuring him a spot in the 20-rider field.

In the main event the teammates started 11th and 12th, but Clarke crashed on lap two and fell back to last place. Goerke experienced a few bobbles as well, but both riders charged till the checkered flag and finished 9th and 10th, respectively.

Matt Goerke:
The track was pretty cool, kind of one-lined. I felt like I rode really good in the main. In the heat race I got a bad jump, but then I hugged the inside and came out third. I moved into the lead, but I rode cautious because Im afraid to fall and then have to go the LCQ. In the main I got a bad start, but I start riding awesome. I just pinned it. I passed a lot of fast guys. I even passed [Christophe] Pourcel before I fell, but then I tipped over two turns later when I was trying to pass Wil HahnI fell over in the sand. So I felt like I rode pretty good finally, so Im pretty pumped for this weekend.
