Shane McElrath consistent at Glendale Supercross
Troy Lee Designs Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team‰Ûªs Shane McElrath maintained a consistent performance in the 250SX West division as he produced his third podium finish of the season with 2nd place at Round 4 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Glendale, Arizona.

McElrath came into Round 4 tied with Joey Savatgy for the 250SX West points lead and he handled the pressure just fine as he began the night with a convincing heat race win.

In the 250SX West Main Event, McElrath got off to a great start aboard his KTM 250 SX-F as he charged the opening lap in the 2nd place position. McElrath wasted no time putting himself into the lead position with a swift pass on Joey Savatgy for the 1st place position. From there, McElrath battled with Aaron Plessinger for the lead spot ‰ÛÒ with Plessinger overtaking the position just before the halfway point.

McElrath finished out strong in the 17-lap Main Event, ultimately finishing 2nd place behind Plessinger. After four rounds, McElrath sits only one point behind Plessinger for 2nd place in the 250SX West Championship Standings.

"I was going as fast as I could, the track was slippery and the lappers were bad out there," McElrath said. "Aaron was just going really fast ‰ÛÒ he was pulling me each lap and I couldn‰Ûªt do anything. But it‰Ûªs fun battling with these guys, this is what we do. We‰Ûªre moving on, looking ahead and ready to take on Oakland.‰Û
