IFMA Freestyle Motocross Makes a Stop in Providence
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (March 2, 2002) - The Dunkin' Donuts Center was the home of this weekends IFMA event. Now that Providence will no longer host the Gravity Games, the crowd knew that this could be the last chance this year to see freestyle motocross. Dustin Miller, Drake McElroy and Kenny Bartram are all gunning for the IFMA points lead. Leading into the weekend, only 6 points separated Miller and McElroy. Trevor Vines, Tommy Clowers and Nate Adams who were all here trying to keep the top three from increasing their lead.
Friday night was Cowboy Kenny's 10th win of the season. Bartram put together yet another flawless run to take the "Hot Seat" from Dustin Miller. After qualifying number one, Drake McElroy had the win in his hand. All Drake had to do was beat Kenny Bartram. Easier said than done. Drake did not have enough to overtake Kenny. Kenny walked off stage with his 10th win of the season followed by Drake and Dustin.
"The course was really rough tonight, it was anyone's to win. I was just lucky enough to put together a good run," said Kenny Bartram on Friday night.
Saturday night Beau Bamburg put together the best run of his short career, ending the first round as the number one qualifier with a 93.1. In the end, the weekend ended the same as weeks past.
