Gladstone wins on a Holeshot at the MIROCK Summer Nationals

Joey Gladstone showed up in Maryland for the MIROCK Summer Nationals ready for a win. Gladstone and DME Racing just coming off back to back wins, came prepared to keep hold of their winning streak. The Orient Express Pro street class held a full field of bikes with the nations top riders and fastest bikes ready for battle.

Qualifying #2 with a 7.12 Joey set off on Sunday with one mission, get to the winners circle by any means possible. Round after round Joey’s consistent lights, with the combination of a well prepared bike, did just that. After three round wins with a bike that was getting steadily faster after each round, Joey had to face rookie teammate Terence Angela in the finals. Knowing that Angela’s bike was also consistently getting faster after each round, Joey decided to change up his normal starting line practice and push the tree harder. “Terrance is a great rider and teammate, but I wanted to win. It’s all business once we roll into the lights, and I want this championship at the end of the year. I can’t afford to let my guard down for anyone.” said Gladstone. Turns out Joey was smart to push the tree harder on this pass as he won on a holeshot running a 7.06 to Angela’s 7.03.

Joey’s next race will be at Virginia Motorsports park June 21-23 for the Manufacturers Cup race. Gladstone is currently leading the points in both series and plans to hold those positions all year. Joey would like to thank all his sponsors for their continued support in making these wins possible.


The Team would like to thank the flowing sponsors for their continued support in 2013.
