He showed up to race for the first two rounds this season at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. He placed second on Saturday and went even faster to take the win on Sunday.

Norra-Day-2-Mexican-1000-4-25-2017
April 25, 2017 (Agua Dulce, Calif.):
Day 2 of the NORRA Mexican 1000 had both the bikes and the cars running south along the coast all the way to El Huerfanito before turning southwest towards highway one at Chapala. They run a transit stage down the highway until El Crucerito and the Mag 7 pit. The shared course then heads farther west in the dirt until it makes a split. The bikes continue southwest until they reach the Pacific coast. From there they head south until another splash of fuel in the Mag 7 pit on the highway. With still more miles to go, they make their way to the finish in Guerrero Negro. The day 2 total mileage for bikes was 270.80 miles.

NORRA-Mexican-1000-Day-Uno-4-25-2017
Day 1 of racing kicked off at the 50th anniversary of the NORRA Mexican 1000. Today’s course that travelled from Ensenada to San Felipe had a little bit of everything. Even before the bikes and cars left the line there was an incredible atmosphere. Watching every type and year of vehicle approach the line was a treat for anyone who loves offroad racing. So many unique vehicles compete in the Mexican 1000. Interesting bikes included the sidecar entry of Chris Kemp with monkey Joe Delucie, and the couple riding double again this year, Kevin and Michelle Busch.
