The CVMA race series at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway witnessed an exciting Round 3 with the brand-new Dunlop Sportmax Slicks setting multiple track records! Racers Edge Performance and Dunlop congratulated Corey Alexander, Bobby Fong, and Jayden Fernandez for their notable performances and new class lap records at the event held on December 16th and 17th.

Starting on Saturday, Corey Alexander set a new track record in the Open SuperSport class with a time of 1:43.917, and then came back on Sunday during CVMA’s Premier class and set a new track record in Open Shootout with a 1:43.666.

“Every race weekend at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway has been a blast, but this one in particular was a great one,” says Corey Alexander. “Dunlop has placed an increased focus on club racing, and with their support along with Dale Kieffer at Racers Edge Performance, we were able to set some new CVMA class records and personal best times for me aboard my Dels Flooring Ride HVMC machine.”

Bobby Fong also set two new track records aboard his Wrench Racing GSX-R over the weekend, with the first in Saturday’s Formula Middleweight class set at 1:44.99 and then on Sunday’s Supersport Middleweight Shootout with a 1:44.856.

“I am really happy with how the weekend ended up, as we set a new lap record for the 600 Shootout,” says Bobby Fong. “We tried several compounds over the weekend but, we settled with the new R8 compound, and it delivered. Overall, I feel Dunlop has made big strides with the new Sportmax Slick. I cannot wait until March to try to make it a Dunlop sweep on the podium at Daytona for the 200.”

Jayden Fernandez also set a new track record on his Ninja 400 during Saturday’s 500 Supersport race with a 1:53.680.

Dunlop riders also swept the top three podium spots during two Premier classes on Sunday, the Supersport Middleweight and Formula Lightweight Twins Shootouts.

“It’s great to see this many records fall in one weekend and to know how hard Dunlop has been working to provide us with the best tires available,” says Dale Kieffer of Racers Edge Performance, Dunlop’s West Coast race tire distributor. “It’s truly a testament to the performance of these new Dunlop Sportmax Slicks.”
