Claremore, OK - Oklahoma’s notorious Arenacross rider Cory Green has made his appearance to the Arctic Cat Nitro Arenacross Tour to win three out of four pro main events Friday and Saturday night in front of his local screaming fans at the Claremore Expo Center. Zack Williams, of Elko, Minnesota spoiled Green’s perfect weekend by taking the 450 Pro win Saturday night.

250 Pro Main Event – Saturday Night

Chris Thies grabbed the holeshot and secured the lead through the whoop section followed by Tanner Young and Cody Agler. Agler made the pass on Young to takeover second in the turn after the whoops. Cory Green wasted no time with his fourth place start to get around Young and Agler to snatch second and put the pressure on Thies. Thies did his best to hold of Green, but Green was able to get the inside line going through the whoops and made the pass in the corner to take over first in the rhythm section. Green crossed the checkers with a sizeable lead. Sean Hackley spend the majority of the race on the side of the track with his chain tangled around his front sprocket. Hackey said he was hit and bent his sprocket.

“I did not get a great start as I was hoping, but made a couple quick passes and managed to get out in the lead and just rode smart and stayed out of trouble,” said Green.

450 Pro Main Event – Saturday Night

Up to this point, Cory Green had 3 out of 3 main event wins, but this time he had to battle with Zack Williams and Cheyenne Harmon. Williams got the holeshot with Harmon and Green in tow. After they crossed the finish line catapult of lap one, Harmon passed Williams in the turn and had the lead through the rollers. However, Williams was not done and applied the pressure on Harmon for a few laps with Green holding back letting them battle for the top spot. Near the midway point, Harmon tried to protect the inside line after the whoops but Williams cut down and took the inside line away. They were side by side going through the rhythm section with Green lurking just behind. Then Harmon made a mistake in the turn before the catapult and lost momentum allowing Williams and Green to make the double pass. That is how they finished. Green made no attempt to challenge Williams and said it was not worth the risk with the track being so worn out at this point.

 “I knew I had the speed to win as long as I got the holeshot, so this race I came out of the gate good,” said Williams. “I made the pass for the lead and after that I knew if my lines were good we’d be pretty even the rest of the race.”
