San Bernardino, Calif. - May 5, 2011 - The third round of the 2011 Yamaha Quad-X Series returns to California this Sunday, May 8th, at Cahuilla Creek MX in Anza, CA. As the series nears the halfway mark, 2010 Quad-X champion Dustin Nelson leads the series standings with two overall victories in as many rounds.
Hot on Nelson's heels are MCR/Maxxis Tire's Beau Baron and Ethan Thatcher, who have taken second and third respectively at each of the previous Quad-X round this season. Baron has been putting plenty of pressure on Nelson so far this season, and with just six points separating the two, Baron is well within striking distance for the championship lead.
The previous round at Arizona Cycle Park saw Dustin Nelson turn a holeshot into an early lead in both motos, while Baron and Thatcher found themselves battling with each other for the chance to make a run on Nelson. Baron managed to get ahead of Thatcher in both motos, and while he closed the gap on Nelson each time, Nelson managed to hold him off and take the win.
