When the gate dropped, his Suzuki RM-Z450 rocketed to a third-place start and he kept pace with the early leaders while riding a smart race. Peick crossed the finish line in fifth ‰ÛÒ his second top-five finish in as many tries ‰ÛÒ and currently sits tied for fourth in the point standings.
‰ÛÏThis weekend went well for me," Peick said. "The goal was to back-up my top-five finish from Anaheim 1, and I succeeded. The track was technical and constantly breaking down, with big whoops and lots of ruts. Houston proved that I can handle the ever-changing conditions. I‰Ûªm excited for Anaheim 2. My next target is to get on the podium. With good starts and consistent lap times I should be able to achieve that. I‰Ûªm really gelling with the RM-Z450 and I like the progress that we‰Ûªre making.‰Û
