BUBBA PAULI

After lots of time off and the emotional and physical stress of wielding your own race team, Bubba Pauli rolled into Houston, Texas ready to get the season started. The work had been done and it was time to put it all to the test. Bubba’s day started off great as he charged on to the Texas soil. He learned the track quickly and was able to put down some impressive times. Bubba Was only a few seconds off the fastest time of the day and was ready to go racing. His night began well and his valiant effort in the Heat gave him confidence going into the LCQ. Bubba and his teammate launched off the gate and we're running near the front. A slight mishap caused him to shuffle back just a bit, but the confidence he gained will help going into round 2.

CADE CLASON

Cade Clason has been a household name in American Supercross for many years. He has made a name for himself and is continuing to show he has what it takes year after year. Cade started his 2021 Supercross season eagerly and was excited to find his flow inside NRG stadium. He did just that and posted some solid times early on. When the gate dropped for his heat, Cade launched to a great start and was battling to maintain qualifying position. He ended up just a few spots outside of qualifying position and was ready to go for the LCQ. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned when the final gate dropped for Cade, but he will have something to build off for the next round.

DEVIN SIMONSON

Devin Simonson, our promising young rookie, made his pro debut in Houston on Saturday. Full of excitement and confidence, Devin couldn’t wait to get on that Texas soil. As he launched into the first practice ahead of all of his fellow competitors, heads were being turned all around the stadium. He continued to show flashes of brilliance all day and it didn’t stop when the gate dropped for his Heat. Unfortunately, he was shuffled back quickly against the veterans of the 250 class but this did not slow him down. When the gate dropped for the LCQ, he was determined to lead them to the first corner, and he did just that. Devin got himself into the lead but a mishap kept him from finishing there. He clawed his way back into the top ten and will be a sight to see at the next round.
