The 2015 MotoSport.com AX Tour hits Mississippi on Saturday for Round 3 in the first of five stops in the Magnolia State.
Heath Harrison looks to keep his "Clash for Cash" winning streak alive and stay atop the standings in the series' highest event payout. Travis Sewell is two-for-two in the AX Pro Lites series, has two Top 3 finishes in the "Clash for Cash" and a win in the AX Pro series. Luke VonLinger is also in the mix with Top 5 finishes in the "Clash" and runner-up spots in both the Ax Pro Lites and AX Pro classes.
In Round 2, Harrison made his win in the "Clash for Cash" round look easy by grabbing the holeshot and never relinquishing the lead. Harrison also grabbed his first win in the AX Pro class last round but needed the LCQ to qualify. Once in though, he dominated that race too. Harrison leads Sewell by eight points in the Clash and Vonlinger is eight behind Sewell in third. Josh Cartwright is also racing well with five Top 5 finishes (combined lasses) on the season and is just two points behind Vonlinger in fourth in the "Clash for Cash" standings.
