250cc race results: AMA National RD1 – Pala – Deegan wins!

Race One: 

Haiden Deegan caught and passed Tom Vialle and then Levi Kitchen to take opening moto win, showing a dangerous combination of calmness and speed! Kitchen got a track marker caught in his boot allowing Deegan to make the move with two laps to go as Vialle holeshot but dropped off the pace citing arm pump to finish third just ahead of Hymas and Savatgy.

*Vialle then got penalized one spot for track cutting by the AMA

Haiden Deegan led wire to wire in race two but Levi Kitchen kept him honest all moto despite never getting close enough to male the pass. Tom Vialle took third after crashing early while fourth trying to pass Swoll and go with Kitchen and Deegan. Vialke dropped to fifth before passing Thrasher and then finally getting the pass laten on Swoll to secure third overall.

*Results were again delayed after Deegan had an off track excursion but unlike Vialle he wasn’t penalized a spot – that would have given Kitchen the overall win!

Deegan said: “I’m done with people talking sh1t. I put my heart into this, I grind. To go 1-1 is a big statement.”
