The Victory Sports Pizza Plus Hot Summer Nights Supercross Series is back, and several local racers are at the front of the pack.
After six weeks off, the circuit returned to the Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray the past two Saturdays. Last weekend, Elizabethton’s Chance Markland won the 65cc D Beginner division on his KTM.
He crossed second and first place in the twin motos. Also on that evening, Markland came in third in the 65cc (10-11-year-olds), placing third in each moto.
In 85-150cc 4-Stroke Air-Cooled, Markland was fourth. He finishes second in the first moto.
The previous Saturday, Markland was fourth in the 65cc (10-11s) and fifth in the 65cc D Beginner.
