Canard Crowned Champion at MX Finale

Pala Raceway proved a perfect spot to crown an new champion in the AMA Outdoor Nationals 250 class and just about everything went right for Team AMSOIL rider Trey Canard.

After gaining ground all season long, Canard needed to make up seven points on rival Chris Pourcel of in the final two moto to bring home his second career points championship.

A strong day of riding and a little bit of luck, (good for Canard, bad for Pourcel), put the championship talk to rest in the first moto. Even though Canard crashed, so did Pourcel and the Frenchman's was much worse than Canards. A dislocated shoulder took Pourcelout of first race, and caused him to miss the second.

After finishing fourth in moto one, Canard ran with race leader Dean Wilson for much of the second moto before going on cruise control and enjoying his first outdoor championship and finishing third overall on the day.
