Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Chris Blose Finishes a Rain-Soaked Tampa Supercross in 13th

Tampa Highlights:

  • Chris Blose started 12th in qualifying
  • Blose came from last to ninth in his heat race
  • Blose crossed main event finish line of the rain-soaked race in 13th

TAMPA, Fla. (February 12, 2023) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Chris Blose endured a challenging track and even more demanding stormy conditions to finish 13th at Round 2 of the Eastern Regional 250SX class inside Raymond James Stadium. He faced uphill battles in his heat race and the main event, but Blose showcased a never-quit spirit.

The day got off to a solid start with Blose qualifying 12th overall after completing both timed practice sessions. When the gate dropped for his heat race, he was in a good position to make it through the first turn but was hit from behind and went down. With the whole field in front of him, Blose pushed the entire race to make it back into qualifying position, finishing ninth.

While there was still moisture from rain earlier in the day, the main event started out dry. This time Blose made it safely around the first turn, but a ways back outside the top-15. He was making up ground and climbed up to 11th, but had an issue and went back to 16th. With eight minutes left, the skies opened and made things slippery and challenging. Even with the elements, Blose never gave up and made it back up to 13th.

“It was a challenging day for me, but we left everything out there on the track in that main event,” said Blose. “The track was technical and my mistakes didn’t help me put us where I know we can be. We’ll keep putting in the work over the next two weeks and think we can be much more aggressive when we show up in Arlington.”
