3/11/2015 - Tickle to Lead the Way for RCH at Lucas Oil Stadium

 

CHINO HILLS, Calif. (March 11, 2015) – Broc Tickle will carry the torch for RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing this weekend when Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, returns to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

  
Even though the RCH contingent will be one rider short for the next three weeks, the team knows it can count on Tickle to keep the wheels turning. After missing Round 5 in Anaheim following an injury at the Oakland Supercross, the Holly, Mich., rider has been the model of consistency.
 
Despite getting together with Trey Canard in the first corner and essentially starting dead last in last weekend’s main event, the 2011 Supercross West Coast Lites Champion posted the fastest lap of the night and rallied for an admirable 10th-place finish at Daytona International Speedway. The top-10 effort allowed Tickle to close the points deficit between him and ninth-place Andrew Short to just two points.
 
“I’m pretty pumped with how everything is going,” said Tickle. “The last few races have been really good for us. I know the results don’t show it but I was really happy with Daytona. I had the fastest lap of the race and it’s been awhile since I could say that so it’s a great thing to build off of. On top of that, I felt like my fitness level was really good so that’s another positive.
 
“I’m looking forward to this week and getting back in the groove of racing indoors. I want a podium. I know I’ve been saying it but now I feel like everything is in place. I just need to put the puzzle together and prove to myself that I can do it. I’m going to keep working on the little things that make a big difference. Starts are key and working on that is going to help me the most. Obviously, we’re all bummed for Ken. He’s a huge part of what makes this team so successful. I know how it feels to have to sit out and not race. Believe me, it’s no fun. We’ll stay after it while he gets better and hopefully put a few podiums together.”
  
“I’m really excited to see what Broc does this weekend. He’s been getting better every week. I know the results sheet says he finished 10th last week, but he was last after he and (Trey) Canard got together and still raced his was all the way up to 10th. He was the fastest guy on the track. I think a podium is right around the corner and it wouldn’t surprise me makes it happen in Indy.”  
 
Before the pits open and the gate drops at the track, Tickle will meet fans and sign autographs on Friday, March 13 from 6 – 7 p.m. at Westfield Powersports Supercross Party at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The party is from 4 – 8 p.m. and will take place behind the Pagoda. Just minutes from Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis Motor Speedway is located at 4790 W. 16th Street. 
 
Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, returns to Indianapolis this weekend when the series pays its seventh visit to Lucas Oil Stadium for Round 11 of the 2015 Supercross Championship. Prior to 2009, Supercross raced at the RCA Dome 17 times making the Circle City a traditional and favorite stop for riders, teams and fans alike. The race will be televised live on Fox Sports 2 Saturday, March 14 beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 4 p.m. Pacific.
