Captains Quarters Happy Labor Day everybody and this is a big one, isn’t it? It’s an extra day off work, just because we work hard as Americans. And yes, it usually involves hot dogs, hamburgers and all that goes along with that. Sadly, it also signifies the end of summer. From the US Department of Labor: Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Can I get an Amen… Anyhow, I would encourage you all to spread this message. No I’m not talking about the hotdogs or the end of summer. I’m asking you all to encourage those that’s don’t have a job, that aren’t helping create social and economic achievements in our country to go out and do something about it. Now I know sometimes there are circumstances, but in the same token, if everyone would do their share and really go out there and go after it, I believe the world would be a better place. Anyhow I’m done with my preach, pretty soon you all will be calling me preacher man but that’s ok too. I know one more thing however that Labor Day brings, and that’s the annual North South shootout at the beautiful Miles Mountain Motocross facility. Last year saw over 600 entries I believe and this year promises to be just as good. This event offers Saturday practice and night Supercross then Sunday racing on one of the coolest tracks in the northeast. If you don’t know about it, check them out online. In this issue find a few of our Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Champions for 2016 along with a lot of great off road race coverage, some short track, great deals from our advertisers all along with our regular features. Speaking of our advertisers, please shop local if you can. They support what you do and really want to earn your business so please give them the first shot before you go running out of the area.

The 1st Mountaineer Vintage Enduro 7/23/16, Terra Alta, WV

By -Richard Colahan and Glenn Hershey Its a few minutes before the 9:00 am Start (key) time for the enduro and the first bikes are starting to queue up. The usual collection of enduro bikes…Husqvarna’s, Penton’s, Yamaha IT’s, Ossa’s, Suzuki PE’s, some BSA singles and even two Triumph twins. But wait … this isn’t an enduro in the 70’s or 80’s … its 2016! That’s right … the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Assn.) Penton Products LLC Cross Country Series has added a traditional time-keeping enduro to its schedule and 92 Vintage and Post-Vintage entries are set to hit the trail at McKee’s Sky Ranch in Terra Alta, WV. Set in the scenic northern end of WV, Terra Alta is practically a stone’s throw from MD and PA. The enduro is a wish that land owner Tom McKee had for years and after working with Dave Kutskel’s Mid Atlantic XC Series trail crew…and some experienced enduro hands from the Valley

A change to 30 mph for a gravel and paved road section brought them to the final secret check-in just 3 miles from the finish. Back into the woods on some tight single-track trail with 2-track connectors and at the finish check TC, Hoess and Miller are the only 3 riders to drop only 3 points … giving them all 5 late points for the day. However, first time enduro rider Miller had the misfortune to burn the final check-in by about 4 seconds … his only burned check of the day … bumping his score up to 7 and resulting in 3rd place overall. The tie between Fast Freddie and TC was broken by seconds recorded at the 2 emergency checks with the Grand Champion trophy going to 19 time ISDE Gold Medalist Fred Hoess. ISDT Veteran Drew Smith had mechanical issues early on and dropped 9 points for 4th overall. Tim Shephard and Perry Hodges each dropped 10 points to round out the top 6 scores. Ted Atkinson rode his 1973 Honda Elsinore to a 12 point score and was awarded the Vintage Class Champion trophy (for bikes up to 1974). The trail crew was very pleased to take a few points from the fast guys, yet provide a course with a 90% finish rate, including both of the Triumph twins. Perhaps the most impressive ride of the day was by Mark Williams who dropped only 40 points on his 1971 Triumph T100C. As Bill Baird proved back in the day, a 1960’s era Triumph 500 can certainly be set up as a very competent woods bike. However by 1971 the T100C had evolved to basically a street bike with some high mufflers…which is what Mark rode with the only change to some knobby tires. Mark’s comment at the finish line? ... “Never again…on THIS bike!” On the other hand, Joe Zito’s finish on his 1972 Triumph 750 was no surprise…Joe has been riding “the beast” to much success in this year’s Mid Atlantic XC series. But 66 early/ burn points didn’t do his score any favors! I’m sure he will brush up on time-keeping for next year.

Forge Trail Riders (of PA) … the enduro became a reality on July 23rd. Leading the field on row 1-A was 4 time National Enduro Champion Terry Cunningham (TC), the Grand Marshall for the event. The first section was 4.4 miles long using most of the wooded XC course, with a section of the famed McKee’s grass track added. Approaching the first checkpoint the course dipped out of the woods for another short grass track section providing the spectators with some great action, then back into the woods before hitting the check. Most riders dropped from 5 to 12 minutes at the first check but 4 riders blasted in dropping only 2: Cunningham, Fred Hoess, Josh Miller, and Tim Shephard. After a mileage reset that got most riders back on time they departed north on a series of Preston County paved, gravel, and rough jeep trails. With modern enduro computers not allowed good timekeeping skills using a clock, route sheet and odometer were needed to zero the next 2 checks. Check #3 was tucked behind a house and served as a check-in to a tough, rocky, muddy 3.6 mile long jeep trail. At 24 mph only 6 riders were able to maintain the pace and zero the check-out. After a 30 minute gas stop/break at a tiny country store next to nowhere, the riders resumed their ride on a mix of gravel and farm roads. Another secret check-in led to another 3.6 mile long muddy jeep trail, but this one eased up a bit towards the end and as a result more than one rider made up a bit too much time before hitting the check-out a minute early! Ouch! The final reset on the course was not to get riders back on time, but to give them a few minutes to enjoy the view north from Gregg’s Knob, the highest point on the ride at 3,200’ feet.


BRAPP MAGAZINE September 2016

At the awards ceremony TC was gracious enough to autograph all of the award plaques and also spent close to an hour sharing some stories of his days as a factory Husqvarna racer and employee. Plenty of questions from the gathered riders and some secrets revealed … such as Dick Burleson’s belief that leaking fork seals were simply an indication of a properly working fork … and just how TC REALLY got those parts he urgently needed to fix his Husky Auto just minutes before a big race! Special thanks go to the small army of volunteers that worked to make the 1st AHRMA Vintage Enduro a success and especially to Tom and Debbie McKee for not only making their property available but for also persuading the folks of Preston County to share their back roads with some old dirt bikes!

Yamaha Demo Days at Rock Run Summer Blast

August 11-14, 2016 By: Brapp Mag Staff Every year the folks at Rock Run Recreation in Patton, Pa have their four day summer blast that offers attendees 100’s of miles of trails to enjoy, evening entertainment, an obstacle course competition, overnight camping, a vendor row and again this year demo rides from Yamaha Motor Corporation who is the main sponsor of this event. This year Yamaha debuted their new 2017 YXZ1000R SS SE which takes their pure sport platform and offers a Sport Shift 5-Speed Sequential Shift Transmission which in essence removes the need for the manual foot clutch and moves the paddle shifters to the steering wheel. Earlier this year we got to drive the manual clutch model which was a true blast to motor around in however I left that day with the notion that although very cool, this wasn’t the machine for me. I believe that application would be more suited for wider open riding areas that we don’t always have access to here in the woods of Pa. Enter the 2017 Sport Shift model: Yamaha took the best of what they had and added the paddle shifter which allows for quicker shifts and eliminates bogging without the need of double clutching this beast to get between the trees. The SS model also down shifts for you just in case you forget to and this animal will not stall on you adding to your riding enjoyment. The other cool option they’ve added is their exclusive Launch System for coming out of the hole quickly. You can set and rev this baby to around 7000 RPM’s before releasing the paddle shift mechanisms and it’s off to the races so to speak. We had a blast trying out this new machine and we’re betting you’ll love it too. You can go online to get all the specs at: and be sure to hit up your local dealer for a test ride and all the details.

• Unmatched Side-by-Side Performance - The YXZ1000R SS SE is proof that Yamaha is the leader in powersports performance. Featuring a 998cc inline triple engine mated to an all-new Sport Shift 5-speed sequential shift gearbox with On-Command® 4WD, massive industry-first FOX® Racing X2 shocks front and rear, and styling the competition can’t touch, the YXZ® is in a class by itself—the only true pure sport side-by-side ever developed. • Stunning 998cc Three-Cylinder Engine - Featuring a compact DOHC twelve-valve cylinder head, an aggressive 11.3:1 compression ratio and hightech dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R SS SE engine offers jaw-dropping power, fantastic midrange torque and a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline. Built for the pure sport side-by-side enthusiast, there’s nothing else like it. • All-New Terrain Conquering, Industry-Exclusive FOX® Podium X2 Shocks - Huge piggyback twin-wall FOX® 2.5 Podium X2 Shocks bring a whole new level of adjustability by giving you high- and low-speed compression damping adjustments, as well as high- and low-speed rebound, all conveniently mounted to the top of the shock body. All shocks also feature dual springs with crossover adjustment—providing 16.2 inches front and 17.0 inches rear travel. • Ergonomics Built for Performance - The YXZ1000R SS SE cab features plush, high-back seats with extra lateral support and outside shoulder bolsters, and the cockpit is built to provide a balance of driving confidence with comfort. Shaped floorboards provide generous legroom while still giving a planted feel during aggressive driving, and both the driver’s seat and steering wheel are adjustable to ensure a perfect fit. • Special Edition Features - In addition to the industry-first, twin-wall Fox® 2.5 Podium® X2 Shocks and durable color-matched bead-lock wheels, the YXZ1000R SS SE is highlighted by a darkly aggressive Matte Black paint and red graphics package with matching A-arms and ROPS frame for standout style. B

SHIFTY GOOD LOOKS - The YXZ1000R SS SE shifts the pure sport Side-by-Side class to another level with fully adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium X2 shocks, bead lock wheels, eye-catching color scheme and more. Starting at: $22,399*

Top Features • All-New Yamaha Sport Shift 5-Speed Sequential Shift Transmission - Yamaha breaks new ground with Yamaha Sport Shift, a sequential 5-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology. This system combines the power, durability and efficiency of a traditional manual transmission with an advanced automatic clutch system that replaces the foot-operated clutch pedal with sporty paddle shifters mounted to the steering column. Plus, a Launch System provides for thrilling take-offs.

Mayhem On The Mountain

@GEOFFGASKINFMX July 23, 2016 - The Brapp Mag staff headed to the beautiful Miles Mountain Motocross facility in Elkland, Pa for their annual Mayhem on the Mountain event. Track owner Phil Egleston’s roots go back to Freestyle FMX and even though he builds some of the nicest MX tracks around, his heart still loves to jump Freestyle MX. Every year he invites a few of his friends out to put on a show for the locals and this year they again offered a mx practice day, a jet ski demo in the pond put on by Moto Option and some Night Supercross racing to add to the show. Evening entertainment was offered and a good time was had by all. Get more details at: and check out pics and video at: B

Loretta Lynn 2016 Champions See full results at:

Mike Stryker - Junior 25 plus National Champion: This year at Loretta’s I got my first championship that I have dreamed about since I started racing. It seems so crazy after a pro career that coming back to Loretta’s I would be racing many of the same guys. It was so much fun doing it with my friends and family !! Seth Hammaker - Super Mini 1 National Champion and Super Mini 2 second place: This Year at Loretta Lynn’s I came home with a Supermini 1 (12-15) National Championship, and also a second overall in the Supermini 2 (13-16) class. Practice day started off really well for me. Just tried to learn the track and make sure my bike was dialed in. Tuesday I had my first Moto of Supermini 1 and I pulled out a 4th place finish. Wasn’t thrilled with how I rode but took the positives from the Moto. Then on Wednesday, I got a super good start and then passed into the lead on the first lap. I lead about the first half of the race and then I made a mistake and second place passed me. I ended up getting second. Thursday morning a big thunderstorm rolled through making the track super muddy. I end up pulling the holeshot and took a smooth ride to the Moto Win! That one Race changed my confidence for the rest of the week. My Second Moto of the Supermini 2 class did not go as planned. First lap I had a bad get off through the sand sweeper, putting me back as far as 17th place on the first lap. I put my head down and charged my way back to 5th when we crossed the finish. Friday evening was going to be the last race for Supermini 1. I knew I had to put myself in a good position to get the championship. I got off to a great start, passed into first about the second lap and just cruised to the finish safely, earning myself the 2016 AMA Loretta Lynn’s National. Overall, the week was a success. Coming into the week I knew I was going to be competing for a championship and we did what we came there to do. I want to thank everyone who has believed in me and who has helped me get to where I am today! Jordan Jarvis - Girls Sr. and Women 14 plus National Champion: This year at Loretta’s, I had the most memorable year yet! I was excited and nervous as we arrived in TN. I wanted to get through all my motos with little to no mistakes and giving it my best every time I got on the track. In both Girls Sr. and Women’s 14+ I went 1-2-1 for 1st overall. I was so happy with my two championships because I worked hard training and riding all year. I am very happy that it paid off. I had so much fun with my family, friends and sponsors that were there to cheer me on. It made it even better, when I was on the podium and was able to see how happy it made them. I would not have been able to win without them supporting me throughout the years and especially when I needed it the most.... working up to and being at Lorettas! Katie Benson - Girls Jr (9-13) second place: This year at Loretta’s I got two out of three holeshots and finished 2nd in all of my motos. I’m proud of myself but with another year in the same class I’m going to train harder at South Of The Boarder to try to win next year! Kevyn Depinho - 50cc Shaft National Champion: This Year at Loretta’s I was a little nervous because last year was my first year and I ended up in 20th place overall. I already knew that nothing was easy at Loretta’s because there were people from all around

the country, but all my hard work of the year was worth it. I won first place in 4-6 Shaft Drive winning all three motos 1,1,1, and had the time of my life by making my parents the proudest they have ever been of me. I would like to thank my mom, dad, my trainer (Dan) from Callahan MX School, and all of my sponsors.

Luke Fauser - 51cc (7-8) National Champion: This year at Loretta’s I had a great time. I didn’t get the start I wanted in the first moto ended up third, then moto 2 and 3 got out front and kept it on 2 wheels to get the wins had some good battles with Jaden Palmer but not surprising we’ve been racing each other since the beginning Jaden Palmer - 51cc (7-8) second place: This year at Lorettas I had a lot of fun playing in the creek with friends. I had a few tough battles on my Cobra. I went 1-5-2 in my motos but finished strong and got second overall! It was my best year yet even though it was a mud fest! Thanks to all my sponsors. Mason Tucker - 51cc (7-8) third place: This year at Lorettas I loved almost getting the hole shot against the fastest kids. B

JACK LAFFERTY SR. Races on Vee Rubber Tires

Trackside support - Fast Kidz Lucky 7

Congrats to all the riders who race on Vee Rubber!

Vee Rubber VRM-308R The 4.00-18 is the traditional trials competition tire. It has a very light 2-ply tubeless radial structure. Best to use this tire for trials use or very light off-road motorcycles

Vee Rubber VRM-211 A top performer front tire. Available in both Tackee and Standard compounds DOT and FIM marked front and rear tires. Performs very well with foam inserts The front 211 tire is well-matched for all Vee Rubber rear tires. Particularly the V308R trials Excellent choice for FIM, 6-days or dual sport trail usage

Like us on Facebook at: Follow us on Instagram at: Follow us on Twitter at:

The new 4.25 -18, 4.25-19 sizes are for off-road use in extreme trail conditions. These models use a stiffer casing structure for a more stable feel on the trail. The 18” tire is DOT marked for dual sport use. Excellent wear for the rider who wants to get the most value out of their tires. The VRM-211 90/90-21 Tackee front tire is an excellent choice when using the V-308R rear. They both offer a lot of confidence in wet roots, logs and rocky conditions. When using this tire “It’s like cheating”.

Groemm Wins 2016 Shotgun Hare Scramble

HMDR Celebrated 20 Years of the Shotgun

By: Kenny Held - VP ECEA - AMA East HS Coordinator Round 5 of the AMA East was hosted by the High Mountain Dirt Riders just outside of Catawissa PA, part of the ECEA Series. This was a 2 day event with all youth events on Saturday and adults on Sunday. A total of 170 youth converged on the “South Side” Conservation Estate. Rain the day before provided primo conditions for the first two heats, Pee Wee and Juniors. Unfortunately the clouds could be seen rapidly approaching from the West. Minutes before the Youth Main flag dropped, the sky opened up. “10 seconds” was announced in a torrential downpour. What made things even more interesting was that the start had a slight incline mandating much needed throttle control for the hole shots. All lines got off safely and the race was under way. 1st place O/A went to “Mad Max” Fernandez from the 2nd row 12-13 Super Mini. Reece Bruner and Michael Beeler Jr were also in contention but couldn’t keep up with Max’s pace. Unfortunately we later learned that the favorite, Beeler, suffered coolant problems due to mud covered radiators. Determined we later saw Beeler pushing his bike through scoring on the final lap for 4th place points. 2nd place going to Reece Bruner and first time on the O/A podium was Tim Brotherton. In the Pee Wee Heat, it was local favorite Austin Tsakanikas taking 1st place. In the Juniors Heat it was Joseph Rainone. Both Tsakanikas and Rainone ran their own race with substantial leads over 2nd place. At this point it looks like Austin will lock up the AMA East 50cc Championship at round 6. Unfortunately Joey has some catching up to do as he missed 2 Rounds due to injuries. The ECEA Fast Kidz and the Slip N Slide

Sundays’ events had perfect weather. Unfortunately Saturdays visit from Zeus left mud and ruts throughout the course. The club was on it and made some needed course changes. The “C” Event started on time and were treated to 6 miles of single track and grass fields with incredible elevation changes. Trail boss Mike Soudas Jr typically creates a clover leaf design enabling spectators to see their racers several times throughout each lap. Coming through in 1st place on lap 1 was once again “Mad Max” Fernandez from the now “Schoolboy Class” several rows back. Max was hanging it out and just slamming his bike into the turns. Covered in mud from passing the rows ahead of him, Max was turning 26 minute lap times. Although Schoolboy is currently not AMA East HS points paying, the AMA is currently in the process of adding SB 1 and SB 2 for 2017. Max went on to take the O/A with Mike Beeler Jr in 2nd place and Sportsman/Industry Professional Marc Grossman in 3rd. When interviewed at the end of the race Grossman was quoted as saying “OMG those kids are extremely fast. I tried my hardest just to Jesse Groemm center wins the overall.

stay out of their way” The battle between Fernandez and Beeler was a showdown that started the day before in the Supermini class. The top 3 in the AMA East points paying classes went to Brandon Rymarzow 1st place, Matt Brotherton 2nd place and Austin Mclean in 3rd. 1:00 brought us the main event. We had 13 AA racers in attendance and battling for the O/A are Kyle McDonal, Wild Walley Palmer and late to the series, Thorn Devlin. Pre race interviews revealed the Devlin was racing on a borrowed bike as his current race sled blew a motor the day before. Also in attendance was GNCC Racer Jesse Groemm. Groemm also plagued with difficulties as his truck broke down while en route to the event. He was rescued by a passing fellow racer on the side of the road. Groemm barely making it to the start line on time. The flagged dropped on the 8.5 mile course with ECEA favorite Billy Schoenberg taking the hole shot with Kyle McDonal and Jesse Groemm in tow. After the 1st lap at 31:50 it was Jesse Groemm with a 20 second

lead over Devlin. In 3rd place it was McDonal, Current points leader. Hot on his trail was SRT’s Wild Walley Palmer. This was to be a 4 lap race and at the end it was Groemm taking the checkers. 2nd went to McDonal. Battling clutch issues was Devlin rounding out the top 3. In a post race interview with Devlin, we learned that he was unaware the bike was equipped with an Auto Clutch the morning of the event. This was something the racer was not familiar with but motored on for a great finish. In all, 470+ racers converged on the small town of Catawissa with 4x’s as many spectators. We thank ECEA and the HMDR club for hosting a spectacular event. Please view all event results at: B Juniors waiting for the 10 second call

Sonic Offroad - Used Side by Side Dealer 4 x 4’s - Sales, Parts, and Service Easton, Pa

Find your next machine at Sonic Offroad.

At some point the brothers went on their separate business journeys with Andrew founding Sonic Solar Energy with Matt sticking to his roots and building up Sonic Offroad LLC which has become the premier off road dealer we visited today. Sonic sells around 15 used side by sides every month and if they don’t have the machine you are looking for they will go out and find it. Sonic also stocks a large selection of parts that you won’t find elsewhere for both 4 x 4 ATV’s and side by sides. They also are one of the only dealers around that can do frame work and total rebuilds of side by sides without the need to replace entire frames and cages. They specialize in what Matt calls “the internal core” of the machine: motor, tranny, frame and suspension. Sonic also offers dealer services to those who may need to sub contract this type of work. Sonic is found easily in Easton, Pa just 50 miles from both Philadelphia and New York City and they also ship worldwide, both parts and machines.

The side by side craze has been sweeping the country and the world over the last couple of years as many off road riders from both the past and present look for ways to go out on the weekend and have a fun, but safe riding experience. Not only motorcyclists from days gone by, but ATV riders, and even off road truck and jeep enthusiasts are finding their ways to this incredibly awesome way to get out and get the lead out so to speak. Not only are they a great form of off road enjoyment, they also offer basic transportation at off road and entertainment events and many are used as work vehicles on farms, ranches and construction sites. Enter Sonic Offroad, a used equipment powersports dealer located in Easton, Pa that specializes these days in finding late model side by sides for their customers at a fraction of the cost of new. In talking with owner Matt Ciasulli recently, he saves his customers between 20-25% off the cost of a new machine and prides himself in offering the best selection and price available in the entire country.

You can check them out online or give them a call at: (610) 730-6396. They are a full motor vehicle and powersport Pennsylvania Licensed Dealer. So give them a call to see what they have in stock today and please tell them that BrappMag sent you. B

Call Matt today to see what he has in stock.

Who is Sonic you ask? Matt and his brother Andrew first got hooked on riding off road when they were just young boys. One day their dad brought home an old beat up 50cc dirt bike and with a few tools and a little bit of ingenuity and hard work they were off on the trail so to speak. They were hooked immediately and through the years they kept tearing things apart and putting them back together. The two brothers were actually ahead of their time when back in the mid 2000’s they created what was in reality one of the first side by sides with their release of a dune buggy race car and a bolt on independent rear suspension kits for ATV’s that was featured in major magazines that put the Sonic Offroad name on the map.

Sonic Offroad is a full service facility.

Sonic led the way in off road machine development. The largest selection of used equipment with the best prices around.

Joey began picking his way through the crowd with his beater t shirt. By the 3rd lap he was in the lead. Unfortunately both Marsiglia and Grenewicz suffered mechanical issues while Seth gave too much too soon and began to tire. All the while those 7-9’s were creeping up. By the 4th lap, Caleb Baltimore and Kenito Held were sitting in the top 5. Now the battle changed from class leaders to O/A leaders. By the final lap it was Rainone taking the checkers with Baltimore and Held finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively from the 2nd row.

Think about any of the off-road engagements you do on a motorcycle or ATV. Especially when you consider racing; on the trails or on an enclosed course, the demands are always there. Mental awareness needs to be at it’s high, along with the physical aspects that are challenged from start to finish. Take motocross for example, just sitting on the starting gate, a recorded heart rate can be ranging anywhere from 65-75% of your maximal output. That’s serious, mainly because to you, you’ve already engaged in activity just by sitting there, waiting for your gate to drop. This is one of the many unique qualities about our sport. Reason Why Riding and Racing are the Best for a Human Body.

You know what you experience during any amount of time spent on your machine. After several minutes, body temperature rises, muscles are being used more frequent and at a higher intensity, your balance and breathing is tested, and at the end of the day, it’s the most enjoyable experience. All of this leads to an optimal performance of the human machine when certain variables are practiced correctly. Optimal performance can be viewed as having increased strength, endurance, stability of joints, controlled posture, improved cardiorespiratory efficiency, increased speed, agility, and quickness, flexibility, decreased body fat, increased metabolic efficiency, increased tensile strength of ligaments, tendons, and muscles, and overall mental stability. Motocross hits on every aspect I just mentioned above. These are qualities every athlete and functional human being desire to have, all to help maintain or increase their quality of life. This is why I believe Motocross is the best activity for any individual looking to better themselves as a whole. Quality of life is everything, and for those of us who live to ride, quality of riding is our quality of life. Keep Riding and Keep Training! Whether you’re into MX, Enduro, hare scrambles, hill climbs, or just free riding, keep going! You want to progress with each ride and embrace every experience you get while on the machine and around the moto environment. To learn more about correct and effective training strategies, look for the next issue as I will help break down what to do in upcoming months as we enter our “off-season” as this will be an excellent time to review your past training efforts, accomplished and unaccomplished goals, and a good time to implement realistic and proven methods of training that will help increase the quality of your riding.

Saturday`s race day will include, the sure to be hotly contested, KEVIN CRINE DASH FOR CASH. The five lap sprint awards the winner $574 which represents Kevin`s first Pro-number. Awards will be paid to the top eleven finishers as follows: 2nd Place $274, 3rd Place $70, 4th Place $66, 5th Place $63, 6th Place $60, 7th Place $58, 8th Place $52, 9th Place $47, 10th Place $36 and 11th Place $32. These numbers all represent Kevin`s national numbers. There will be no entry fee for this race. First 40 riders to sign up may participate. Last year`s winner for the KEVIN CRINE DASH FOR CASH was Tony Archer. Saturday evening post-race events, with M.A.M.A and the Crine Family, will include good times and dinner donated by Trader’s Restaurant. The evening will include video of Kevin`s racing experiences, reminiscing over some great pictures and stories of Kevin shared by his fellow racers, friends and family. A local band, MX-51, which has two former M.A.M.A. members, will perform from 7–11p.m. Please join us in honoring Kevin. On Sunday, Ty Wallace, former teammate, pro-rider and friend will be riding Kevin`s last bike in a parade lap before racing begins. Kevin was an extremely talented racer from Southern Maryland who started racing in M.A.M.A. at the age of 14 in 1988. In that same year, Kevin became the only M.A.M.A. racer to advance from novice to expert in one year. Five years later, Kevin made his Pro-national debut at Budd’s Creek in the 125cc class. Kevin went on to become one of Maryland`s greatest riders ever by achieving multiple Supercross and Motocross national numbers for 10 consecutive years. A feat that few ever achieve. Kevin`s work ethic and dedication to the sport of motocross turned many heads in the industry. Our local motocross family is very proud to have had Kevin as part of our community. Kevin was not only an outstanding racer; off the track he was a true blessing to be around. Kevin was always a very positive person and was always willing to help anyone. He was, and still is, a true inspiration to his fellow racers and their families. Kevin`s death in 2006 is still fresh in the minds of his family and friends. Kevin was very well-known and remembered in the motocross community and we want to honor his life and legacy by hosting a memorial race in his memory. Hope to see everyone there!

WNYOA Hare Scramble Series By: Tiffany Merritt

Brad Aman finished with a solid 6th place today in AA quads

WNYOA hosted its 10th round this past weekend: Scooters at Blinn Brothers farm, promoted by Scottie Rich and his family. This track was full of surprises with a hill climb they called Gargantuan, an enduro cross section that was definitely a crowd pleaser and even a school bus that you raced through the center of. Due to a drought like conditions, the dust on the track was untamable but the riders pushed through and braved whatever the nine miles of track would throw at them. The race competition was intense for a lot of the classes today. In mini bikes, Benjamin Wright from Gillet, Pa dominated the Super Mini 14-15 year old class taking the overall for the day followed next by Anthony Powers from Van Etten. NY and completing the podium with 3rd overall was Colby Davis from Berkshire NY both riding in the Super Mini 12-13 class. Going into the afternoon races I knew the race day was only going to get better. In the AA line, (expert class) Matthew Keefer grabbed the holeshot and it was not going to be easy to catch him. The first half of the race he was battling with Brett Ward until something happened that caused Ward to pull off the track. Keefer was able to gap himself out between 2nd place and take the win for the day followed by Alex Dzikiewicz of Newfield NY and Mark Fortner of Westfield NY.

Mason Callear age 6 competed in his first race ever and ended up 2nd place!

The Adult quads were up next and Marty Christofferson Jr from Richford NY pulled the hole shot. It was a battle back between Christofferson and Hunter Hart from New Field NY. These two took the battle right to the finish line finishing within a second of each other followed in third by Greg Covert from Ithaca NY. Overall Scooters at Blinn Brothers Farm was an unforgettable race and I can’t wait to see what the Rich family has up their sleeves for next year. B
