BTOSports.com/BBMX/Palmetto Suzuki’s Thomas Suffers Tough Luck in Oak-Town
The BTOSports.com/BBMX/Palmetto Suzuki team rider Jason Thomas can be accused of a lot of things like bring vertically challenged, liking Rocky IV too much and being a little serious on race day but one of the things that no one can say about him is that he doesn’t give it his all out on the track. The long-time privateer is a favorite of many fans and fellow racers because of the honest effort he gives out on the track.
This past weekend at round four of the AMA Supercross series in Oakland, California, Thomas went out there and just missed out on a direct transfer to the main in his heat by placing tenth. Being one spot out of making it to the main meant the dreaded Last Chance Qualifier where only the top two made it in.
“I was feeling pretty good out there really and I’ve dominated the LCQ’s in the past so I know I could win” said JT after the race “But unfortunately, I got a bad jump off the gate and in that race, the start is everything.”
And with that bad start went any chance of a main event on this week for Thomas (who has made two out of the four so far this year) and he’ll go to Anaheim this weekend with one thing on his mind-revenge. Kind of what Rocky was going after the death of Apollo in Jason’s favorite movie.
