Matias Podboj set the tone at round one for the Phil Giebler Racing S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto division, sweeping the action in Buttonwillow. While it was not a complete sweep, Podboj extended his point lead once again with another strong performance in round two. Qualifying at the top of the order as the only S2 driver under the 43-second mark, his pace was evenly matched by Hawaiian Alex Gumpfer. Making his first start of the season, Gumpfer trailed close in the opening heat race. In the second moto, Gumpfer got the better start and led the entire 12 laps to end Podboj’s perfect streak. Matias, however, would strike back in the final. Trailing Gumpfer for the first half of the race, he retook the lead on lap 11 and drove away to a 2.659-second victory.
