I was all by myself . First few tests I got to look ahead . I got to pick my head up . I ’ m looking down . The turns are quick , too . It was fun once I learned how to ride again and just picked my head and looked to see what was coming .”
Since switching to a four-stroke mid-year , Beta USA ’ s Thorn Devlin has turned in some solid rides . In Indiana , Devlin was eighth overall .
Ansley , who won the first six NE Pro 2 races of the year , was disappointed at having his win streak broken , but his ninth-place finish was good enough to wrap up the NE Pro 2 Championship with two races remaining on the schedule .
“ All winning streaks come to an end ,” said Ansley . “ I didn ’ t really ride my best today . I know where I can make improvements and stuff . This really isn ’ t my best type of riding – slick , hard pack . I ’ m better when the track is faster paced . We got the championship today , so that was really the main goal . It sucks to not win , but I ’ m not too down about it .”
Babbitt ’ s Online / Monster Energy / Team Green Kawasaki ’ s Tanner Whipple rounded out the top 10 .
Whipple also won the AA class .
With just two rounds remaining , Stew Baylor leads the series standings with 181 points , followed by Josh Toth with 150 and Ben Kelley with 146 .
