Jason Brown, David Hurtado Each Win a Race at Arroyo Seco Raceway

By Daniel Berger on behalf of ASMA


Experts Jason Brown and David Hurtado both claimed victory last Sunday, April 9 at
Arroyo Seco Raceway near Deming, New Mexico. The second round of racing got
off to a rough start as  two separate incidents resulted in red flags during the early
laps of the day’s first race, the Un-limited Superbike sponsored by Kurveygirl.com.

After re-gridding for the third time, it was series-leader Mikey Shreve and his
Yamaha YZF-R1 who first entered the first corner, followed by Joseph Chasser and
his R1, and last year’s hole-shot-hero Brown onboard a Kawasaki ZX-10R. Had it
not been for gremlins in Chasser’s new and untested clutch that caused his front tire
to hop on the pavement, he might have just edged Shreve to the front, as he was
first to react when the green flag was raised.

Hurtado and his ZX-10R had a typical slow start, and it wasn’t until the fourth lap
that he was able to pester Brown for second place; Hurtado attempted to overtake
Brown inside the Horse-shoe and on the back straight, but Brown had more power
in his Kawasaki machine and fended him off.

With late braking entering the carousel, it was Brown who did the passing when he
overtook Shreve for the lead and race win during the last lap. The lap prior, the two
were side by side in a late-braking showdown into the Horseshoe, but Shreve had
the inside line and remained in front. Hurtado, having suffered issues with his brakes
during the last lap, dropped from third to fifth by the time he rolled past the finish
line. Chasser took advantage of Hurtado’s mishap and claimed the last step on the
podium.

Saturday’s qualifying for the premier Evan Steel Performance Formula Arroyo race
resulted in Hurtado occupying pole position, Brown and Eric Sotomayor gridded
second and third, respec-tively. This time Sotomayor and his Suzuki GSXR1000
nabbed the holeshot with Brown and Chasser just behind.

The top three maintained their positions until the fourth lap when Brown passed
Sotomayor on the back straight. Meanwhile, Hurtado worked his way through the
pack after another disastrous start and clung to Chasser’s tail. But Chasser strove
for mach speed laptimes, one of which was a personal best 1:09.263 for the counter-
clockwise direction, and he kept Hurtado behind until the next lap when he was
overtaken inside the Horseshoe. That very same lap, series leader Shreve suffered
chatter going into the Carousel and was forced off the track, but he refused to
throw in the towel and rejoined at the tail of the pack in an attempt to salvage as
many points as possible.

In the seventh lap, Hurtado caught second-place Sotomayor and the two dashed side
by side into the Horseshoe; Sotomayor lost that drag race and went off into the dirt,
but his race did not end there and he rejoined to finish fifth just in front of Shreve.
Brown had a comfortable lead in front of Hurtado until the eighth lap when shifting
issues sent Brown off just before the Bus Stop. He was able to recover quickly,
though Hurtado took advantage of the opportunity for an easy overtake and sailed on
to meet the checkers first. Brown finished second and Chasser, only his second race
as an expert, rounded out the podium for the second time of the day.

The best race of the day was the UltraLight Grand Prix by JR Cochran Service, as
teenagers CJ Chaparo and Robert Roach Jr brought had everyone in attendance
watching as they battled for the third time of the day on the Heems Racing Kawasaki
Ninja 250’s. The lead changed most laps, with Chaparo, a motocross racer who just
made the switch to pavement strongest on the brakes off the long straights and
Roach smoother and faster in the middle of the turns. Both rid-ers were over a
second and a half under the previous 250 lap record as they traded paint several
times, much to the enjoyment of spectators, with the win going to Chaparo and
Roach right be-hind and Justin Brown in third.  Roach and Chaparo each got two
wins in the largest classes of the weekend setting the stage for a season long battle.

The third round of ASMA racing at Arroyo Seco is scheduled for Sunday, May 7.
Testing will take place the Saturday prior.
