XXX Racing-AthletiCo's John Tomlinson
on Friday earned his second national championship, racing aggressively and intelligently in the 17-18 points race in Trexlertown, Pa. Tomlinson was off the front twice in the race, lapping the field the second time. "I was pretty wiped and trying to stay active," he says. Staying active paid off, and he finished three points ahead of the closest competitor. Tomlinson has been a member of XXX Racing-AthletiCo since joining as a 13-year-old in 2006, and this is his second title, having won the 17-18 scratch race in 2009.
