Lange Is The 1

| February 24, 2004

Canadian rider Darcy Lange is the new National Arenacross Champion. Coming into the weekend, Lange had an 85-point lead over second-place Tommy Hofmaster, and after pulling out three main event wins, Lange earned enough points to secure the championship, with a lead of 97 points (there are four main events per weekend with 20 points for winning each).

With just one round left in the 12-round series, the competition continues with the battle for third and fourth place with just 20 points separating current third-place holder John Dowd and fourth-place Justin Brayton. Tommy Hofmaster sits comfortably in the second position with 84 points over Dowd. Next weekend’s final round will take place at Kemper Arena on February 27-29.
