Del's Performance Wheelie Championships 6

Adam Spitaliere was the big winner at the Del's Wheelie Championships 6 at Englishtown Raceway Park. Spitaliere took top honors in the Wheelie Contest and Freestyle Arena Challenge as well as placing second in the Burnout Competition.  At the Del's Wheelie Championships 5 Spitaliere crashed when he bit it on a handlebar rolling stoppie.  He repaired his ZX-9R and came back in striking fashion with the double win.

"It feels great," said Spitaliere. "To have a wipeout the last time and this time go back with three trophies?  You can't beat that!"
