Barcia Now Focuses Completely on Retaining the Championship Title

During the eleventh match of the 2012 AMA Supercross Series, a part of the FIM World Championship at Indianapolis, Justin Barcia’s winning streak in this season of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Series finally came to an end. The ace rider of team GEICO Honda previously registered four consecutive victories and was eyeing at the fifth one at the Lucas Oil Stadium of Indianapolis last Saturday. He could only manage to secure the third spot and appeared at the podium while Blake Wharton of team Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki came first. Darryn Durham of team Kawasaki finished second in the race.

With the winning streak of Barcia finally getting snapped, GEICO Honda's defending champion can now solely concentrate on defending the championship and register second consecutive title win. The most easy and comfortable way to do this would be to win more matches and gain more points. Currently, Barcia tops the points table of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Series and has a healthy lead of 22 points over Darryn Durham who resides at the second position. He will definitely be aiming to win the upcoming twelfth race of this season at the Rogers Center of Toronto this weekend. The dirt present on the race track at the Rogers Center of Toronto is pretty unique in its nature and is known to offer surprising features. It would be better for Barcia if he doesn’t relax too much and focus on practicing instead.

This Saturday’s match will be full of records and milestones for Justin Bogle, the Lites teammate of Barcia. Not only is it his birthday this coming weekend, but also will be the first time that he will race outside USA. Hopefully, all these factors would be enough to make him deliver a spectacular performance at Toronto and claim an appearance at the podium. Bogle resides at the seventh position in the points table with eleven points behind the sixth position holder Jake Canada.

Justin BarciaKevin Windham, another ace rider of GEICO Honda, will head towards Toronto and race there in spite of a very poor performance during the eleventh match at Indianapolis. In the Supercross standings, Windham resides at the fourth position with a lead of only five points over Davi Millsaps who is at the fifth position. Windham is under great threat of losing the fourth position to Millsaps. The match will be broadcasted LIVE from Toronto on SPEED TV channel commencing from 7:30 p.m. EDT.
