CYCLE USA, July 2009

From the Back of the Pack By Mike Quinn, D23 Chairman It has been an extremely rainy and wet June for us this season. I hope that we will get back to normal levels of precipitation soon. It has made for some interesting races to say the least. As they say it is wet and muddy for everyone on the track. I have always been amazed at the way some racers can ride in the goo just like it isn’t there. Every time I have tried to ride fast in the mud I have ended up upside down with a helmet full of mud. I’m told the trick is to go fast enough to keep the tires cleaned out. Apparently I have yet to master that technique (along with many others). Having said all this it still can be fun to ride under those conditions. The speeds are reduced, if you go down the ground is certainly much softer, and it takes all of your focus just to keep it upright and moving forward. For us old guys its nice because it takes the jumping factor out of the racing. We can handle slippery, and we grew up with bikes that when clean still weighed more than the new bikes do even after they have a ton of mud stuck to them. The only real downside is cleaning up the bike after the race. I find I can spend more time cleaning it than I did riding it. This is where it would be nice to have a mechanic or a dad to clean it up for you. I’ve tried to enlist my wife’s help but that is even harder than getting any sympathy from her after yet another riding injury. But part of racing outdoors and living in this part of the country is adapting to the weather. The other real positive to mud races is that the spectating is spectacular, when not on the track racing you can watch all the other non mud experts flounder. It really provides some great entertainment. And lastly there is no dust to contend with, it is nice to be able to see where you are going or should I say trying to go. Like all of life, racing throws us an occasional curve ball. Rolling with it and still participating takes commitment. It is nice to see so many of our riders going to the races even when the weather isn’t ideal. It is important to the health of the sport and clubs and promoters that we show up and sign up despite the weather. In these economic times it is important for us hard-core diehards to keep the sport alive, and participation is the best way. It is

Announcements, personal stuff, and....

nice to see a large number of racers still participating through the difficult times. This type of commitment will see us through the crisis with out losing the many gains we have made over the past decade. On behalf of the board and the clubs and promoters I would like to thank all of you for making the necessary sacrifices to continue racing rain or shine good times or bad. On another note the outdoor Nationals have proved to be very interesting this year. The 250 class is certainly up for grabs and the 450 class has lost 2 of its biggest contenders. This should make for an interesting season. I would guess that Chad Reed is really happy that he made the decision to race the outdoor series this year. Prior to this year I have always followed the pro action but I have never really been close to the inside stories and workings of Pro MX. I have really learned a lot about it this year knowing some of the racers well. Talking with them gives you some good insights. The new marketing strategies and television coverage will help but we need to make the playing field even for all racers not just a few factory ones. The factories are pulling out, or drastically cutting their programs due to cost and tight dollars. Yet it is those very factories that have caused the problem that they currently face. In their quest for the championships they have tied themselves into huge contracts, then they make special equipment for just a couple of their racers at a horrendous cost, put together $10,000 motors that are only good for a 3 to 4 hours and wonder why they can’t afford to field a team. Even a private sponsor has a terrible time fielding a competitive team because they cannot get the same bikes and parts that the factories have. If you look at Nascar you do not see a Chevy Team or a Ford Team, all the teams are private and they chose the brand of car and work with a factory to obtain the machines of their choice. GM is not making special parts for only 1 racer or car. After market builders and the teams themselves take care of that. Nascar takes care of keeping an even playing field and their attendance numbers show it. We need to take a page out of their book and make the sport even for all of our races. Right now we take the most talented racers and put them on the best suspended, fastest bikes

that are not obtainable by the mere privateer and then the fans get to watch them run away with the race. Boring racing action. Why not have a horse power limit for each displacement? Why not require suspension that is commercially available to all racers that has to use the stock inner and outer tubes? It would be much easier to find outside sponsors and build independent teams like you see in car racing if we would regulate some of what goes on. There has to be some reasonable means by which we can level the playing field, reduce the huge debt to the manufacturers, attract outside sponsors and improve our racing product. We have the best racing product out there I think and I would like to see us capitalize on that by using some of the lessons learned by other racing organizations. So much for my opinions what do all of you as racers think? How can we improve and grow? The more popular the pro level the healthier we are at the amateur level. That is why this is important to all of us diehards that want to keep grassroots MX alive and growing. Lets see if we can get MX Sports to listen to some of your ideas to improve the package, retain the pro racing program that we already have, and make it so all of our talented racers have an equal shot out there on the track.. Well I have run out of hot air for this month so I hope to see you on the tracks and trails of

MN under better weather conditions for the rest of the season. Mike 2009 Amateur Hill Climb National Championships to be held in New Ulm, MN. The Flying Dutchmen Motorcycle Club has been working hard to get this event for the better part of the last year. The hard work started with their application which included information about the long 60 year history the club has with 100% AMA membership and their 40 years experience hosting Hill Climbs both at their old facility and now at their 41 acre grounds. The new grounds include nicely equipped Club House and plenty of space for pits and camping. Along with their application they included photos of their facility and a long list of signatures they collected from people attending their annual district climb wanting to see the nationals in New Ulm. The application was submitted last fall with the announcement coming early in December that the Dutchmen had been awarded the event, slated for Aug 14-16. The 14th will be for sign in and tech inspection. The rest of the weekend will be all about racing. As a way of welcoming the riders from all over the country to southern Minnesota, the Dutchmen will host a Pork Chop dinner Friday evening after Tech Inspection. The meal will be free for registered riders and only $5

for their families and support crews. After the feast, Club member Chris Smith has put together a band to provide some entertainment for the rest of the evening. Racing will start at 8am Saturday and Sunday with the trophy presentation at the end of competition Sunday afternoon. For more information and updates about this exciting event you can visit the Flying Dutchmen’s website at www.flyingdutchmenmotorcycleclub.com where you can download entry forms, get directions and info about the grounds, and see some pictures from last years events.

Busy Weekend at Hixton Hixton Wisconsin - May 31 By Doug Forstner

H

ave you ever heard the saying, “you meet the nicest people on a motorcycle?” I believe this statement to be very true. It doesn’t matter if you race motocross, hill climb, hare scrambles, are a road rider, old or new school, or just plain into bikes. Well Hixton, WI got a taste of a lot of good people over the weekend. On Saturday, CMJ Raceway hosted its second annual VMX race at the legendary old school motocross facility. 85 ole timers from the Midwest showed up for some of the best old school racing around. I could probably write about 20 pages about this alone, however, if it weren’t enough, the CMJ gang also hosted motocross and a hare scramble on Sunday as well. Throw all these people into the same mixing bowl and what do you get? One great weekend of racing. For once, the Chris and his gang were treated to some excellent weather. It rained earlier in the week putting needed moisture in the ground and then the sun came out and the skies opened up for fabulous racing. Sunday’s racing got under way with the quads first followed by the always exciting 125Jr class. KTM mounted Kurtis Endres took an outside gate thinking he could slingshot himself into a first moto holeshot. Cody A good number of riders came out to enjoy a great day.

It didn’t take Endres a pack. to long though to get around and into the lead where he was able to check out. Brandon Clifford and Cody Fredrick were also in the top five and mixing it up. A good battle ensued with Clifford, Fredrick, Steuck and Joe Gomez. Clifford eventually would hang on to get second ahead of Fredrick. Moto two once again had Endres out front as he was able to secure a perfect 1-1 for the overall ahead of Fredrick’s 3-2 and Clifford’s 2-3. Steuck used Erdmann was able to get around consistent 5-4 motos to take Smage for fourth. After the moto fourth ahead of Chase Varvil. I asked Leum what happened and Open A was another good he simply said, “ I got tired!” race with many lead changes. Moto two was more of the Yamaha mounted Dave Smage same as Smage got out front from Elkorn, WI was able to grab again. This time Olsen got a betthe first moto holeshot ahead of ter start and got into the lead on Marty Leum and Dustin Hofflap two before the highway douman. Eugene Olsen got a bad bles. He never looked back and start, but don’t feel sorry for him finished a clean 1-1. Smage was just yet. Up front Smage was able to take second in the moto working hard trying to keep with Hoffman hot on his heals, Leum and Hoffman at bay. Evenbut Hoffman’s 3-3 beat the 5-2 tually Leum got by. Behind him, for second overall. Jacob OldenOlsen was working through the burg and Erdmann had another pack. Olsen found a good line in good battle with Erdman coming the famous uphill whoop section out ahead with his 4-5 moto and put on a nice pass on Hoffscores. man half way up the mountain. Open C was another good Once Olsen started closing on race on the day as #38 Yamaha Leum, he must have smelled mounted Ryan Cox from Barablood and reeled him in. boo got the holeshot ahead of Olsen won the moto ahead Kail McCormack and Brandon of Leum and Hoffman. Jason Miller. At the beginning of lap two McCormack was out front with Cox in second. Miller and John Weir were battling inside the top five and Miller was gaining ground by doubling after the finish line. Steuck was working hard trying to get around both riders. On the last lap it was McCormack with the win by two bike lengths over Cox. It was a good race. Steuck was able to make the pass and get his Honda into third. Moto two saw

Cox getting revenge by taking the overall with 2-1 moto scores over McCormack’s 1-2. Miller rode hard and finished third in the moto ahead of Steuck and Weir. The top ten in this class has really stepped up since the beginning of the year and all are riding well. Sportsmen B/C had a full gate and the action was hot and crazy. There was plenty of excitement as Justin Broberg from Waukesha took the moto one win ahead of William Barghahn and Cody Ciszewski. Dillon Kau and Richard Tracy rounded out the top five. In moto two though, it was Tracy who put his Yamaha out front to get the win. Broberg rode smart and took second in the moto and his 1-2 moto scores gave him the overall. Barghahn finished third in the moto, good enough for second place overall. One of the best parts of my day was getting waffle cones with the kids to cool off as we left Hixton. The lady at the gas station asked if I raced and I said no, I was just in town for the race to shoot photos and hang out with family and friends. She said it was so nice that everyone was in town, and that all the people were friendly, and it was great to see everyone. See, I told you at the beginning of the story that you meet the nicest people in the world on a motorcycle. If you are still reading this, next time you are at a race, make it a point to go meet a new motorcycle friend.

Vintage racing at Hixton Hixton, Wisconsin - May 30 By Clint Landis

T

he Midwest Vintage Motocross (VMX) outdoor season got off to a great start May 30th at CMJ Raceway in Hixton, Wisconsin with a better than expected turnout to start the year off right. The Midwest VMX series is committed to providing a safe, family friendly racing experience with a full range of vintage bike classes, kids classes and modern classes for everyone who loves to race but could do without the 40 foot doubles. It was great to see all the new Minnesota and Wisconsin riders come up after the race and say how much fun it was to get back on the track with old bikes and friendly people. The Saturday racing was the tale of two race tracks as the previous night’s rain left a slick track for the first set of motos. Certainly a test of skill for those riders that could keep the bike upright and manage to survive the challenging conditions – but that’s motocross, right? The second set of motos was another story. Thanks to the terrific track preparation by the CMJ hosts Chris and Kirsten Halverson, things dried out and the track was tacky, rutted and everything an outdoor motocross track should be. The layout by-passed a few doubles and whoop sections, making it tailor made for the Midwest VMX riders. It was a competitive and fun day of racing with temperatures in the very comfortable mid 60’s. Setting the standard for speed on the day

was John Strangfeld from Deforest, Wisconsin on his beautifully restored KX250. John placed first in the Evolution/Revolution open expert and the Revolution heavweight expert classes. Following an early push from Sean Eisen on a 1980 Suzuki RM125, Strangfled went on to win the Grand National class as well, a new 1- moto class pitting all vintage bikes together in one race. In the modern bike classes, in the 250B class Cody Fredrick took first on his Yamaha followed by Kyle Whysol on a Honda. Fredrick also took the win in the schoolboy class followed by Frank Caballero.

Golberg dominates Mazeppa Weekend Mazeppa, Minnesota - May 25 By Mike Nelson

K

yle Golberg dominated the top classes taking three first place trophies and one second place in two days of A class racing at Hurricane Hills MX Park over Memorial Day weekend. The weather finally cooperated with clear skies and warm temps, and the gang out at Hurricane Hills did a great job providing a full weekend of quality racing and entertainment. Owner Jeff Gray had 20,000 gallons of water brought in to help with track grooming, and as usual offered free camping Friday night for the early birds. Saturday was all about some seat time with a full day of organized practice alternating big with small quads on 15 minute shifts. Golberg started his winning ways right out of the gates taking the holeshot in his first 450A moto Sunday morning, and wishing his father a happy birthday by winning all four of his motos. Not all were as easy as the first as Golberg found himself contending with a little traffic in his afternoon motos. He worked his way through it making passes on Kyle Ryman, Darren Lee, and Chris Plantz in the first couple of laps. Monday morning Golberg jumped right in chalking up another win in the 450A morning moto. When the gates dropped on the Open A moto, Darren Lee took the holeshot but Golberg and Brent Zeien were coming hard inside of him and the three of them got together on the face of the first jump turning Lee sideways and rolling Zeien off of his Honda. By the time they got their machines untangled Jon Diethelm, who had watched all this happen, was so far gone that nobody was going to catch him and Golberg’s hopes of a clean sweep for the weekend were dashed as he settled in with a fourth place finish. Golberg won both his motos in the afternoon earning his second 450A title in two days. Plenty of other riders took home double trophies for the weekend, with half of the twenty-two classes of competition posting re10

he fifth round of the 2009 D15 series and the first race of the 2009 Southern Indiana Series was held at the Midway Motorsports Park in Mitchell, IN. An estimated 80% of the trail was new compared to the last couple of years.

LTM Memorial Day Classic Casey, Illinois - May 24 By James Pinckard

W

hat does former NBA star Rik Smits and our National Arenacross Champion Jeff Gibson do on Memorial Day? They do the same as many other riders, they go to Lincoln Trail Motorsports at Casey, IL to take part in a long time tradition. In fact in Illinois on this holiday you think of two races, the Springfield Mile, and Motocross at LTM! The crew at LTM gave the riders several choices of events. On Saturday they had the grass track race. Sunday they hosted a motocross and hare scrambles and on Monday more of the same. A true Illinois tradition in District 17. Its funny sometimes where the best racing of the day comes from. Today it came from three classes, 50Sr, 250A, and +25. In the 50Sr class the battle was between Cobra rider Larry Smith, Cobra rider Jason Gepford and KTM rider Devin Simonson. During their motos you could throw a blanket on all three they were that close. It was just good racing. In the first moto it was Smith who stole the holeshot and took the moto win with Simonson second and Gepford third. In the second moto Smith again came out swinging taking the moto and well deserved overall win. Behind him, Gepford got tough and took second for the moto and overall. Simonson finished third. Gepford would later try his hand in the 65 class and finished eighth overall. Now the 250A class didn’t look right to

me for some reason. That reason was long time Kawasaki rider Shawn Clark is now riding Yamaha. It looked strange to me to see the #56 on the blue bike, but one thing was for sure, there was no question as to how he is riding. Up against Jeff Gibson, Clark motored that Yamaha to both moto wins leaving Gibson in second. Wow, good to see you back at the track Shawn. The +25 class had one of the greatest races of the day, and the fastest! In the first moto Jeff Gibson was out front with Kawasaki rider Scott Metz second and Honda rider Denny Dooley third. In the second moto Gibson shoved his way to the front for the moto and overall win. Dooley finished second and second overall. Ryan Tracy finished third ahead of Metz, giving Tracy fourth overall and Metz taking the last podium.

Jenner, Fetters tops at Neoga Neoga, Illinois - June 6/7 By Bud Northrup Photos by Gordon Green

C

ody Jenner was the fastest of the fast at the Central Illinois M/C night hill climb near Neoga, Illinois. He had to come from way behind however, as he crashed his CR500 at 66 feet on his first ride in the 600cc class, and Matt Peters took the first round lead with a 2.557 second time on his KX500, also the fast time of the night to that point. In the second round, Jenner kept the rubber side down and flew over the top in a sizzling 2.339 seconds to move into the lead. Peters countered with a good run of his own, but had to settle for second with Butch Fetters claiming third. Peters still had a very good night, taking two wins to go with his second. His first came in the 250cc class, where his first round 2.599 second run on his CR250 held up all night for that win. Danny Schumann claimed second on his YZ250 and Dylan Brady was third on his Honda. Peters also took the 450cc class win on his KTM380. His first round 2.507 second time would have been good for the win, but he beat it himself with a second round run of 2.470 seconds. Danny Schumann was second again, also on a KTM, with Gordon Green third on his Yamaha. Kyle Galloway enjoyed a triple win evening, claiming both stock classes and the 200cc class. Riding a very quick KX250 in 400 stock, Galloway topped the hill in 2.479 seconds on his first ride, and no one could match that time. Mike Pulver was close with a 2.486 second ride in the second round, with Gordon Green carding a good 2.507 seconds for third. Galloway brought his KX500 in for the Open Stock competition and flew it over the top in a blazing 2.354 seconds on his first ride. But this time Pulver put the pressure on with an even faster 2.345 second run on his CR500. Galloway responded with a fistful of Kawasaki power on his second ride and flew high over the top into the landing area 14

CYCLE USA, July 2009

with a new class leading 2.277 second time, which held up for the win. Pulver couldn’t improve on his first ride and had to settle for another second, with Vance Lashley claiming third. Galloway’s third win came in the 200cc class where his 3.375 second time on his KDX was good for the win, with veteran Keith Klett second. In youth class action, Dakota ‘D.J.’ Watson was the fastest, winning the 85Jr class with a quick 2.664 second time on his KX85. That time was also good for the Fast Time award. Jeremiah Lyday was second with Eathen BartenBack third. In other youth action, Reece Hutton claimed the 50cc class win with a 3.358 second time on his KTM. Levi Peters was second on his KTM with Braden Young third. Peters was the best of the 65cc class, winning that with a 3.456 second run on his KX65. Andrew Fortner was second on his Kawasaki. Butch ‘Fearless’ Fetters was the fast guy for the Sunday portion of the doubleheader. Riding a KX500 in the 600cc class, Fetters delivered a very fast 2.365 second time on his first ride. This time would stand up all day for the class win, and also for Fast Time. Fetter’s closest challenger was his brother in law, Matt Peters, also on a Kawasaki. Peters was only 7 thousandths of a second behind Fetters on his first ride, but had to scratch his second round attempt. ‘Fast Andy’ Fortner was third with a 2.389 second time on his Honda. Peters still had a good day as he claimed two class wins, the first in the 250cc class where his 2.460 second run on his first ride on his CR250 was good for the win. Danny Schumann was second with Dylan Brady third. Peters rode his KTM 380 to the win in the 450cc class. Danny Schumann was second again on his KTM with Gordon Green third. Randy Trosper was also a double class winner, taking both the Senior classes. Riding a CR500, the 50 year old ‘Rocketman’ delivered a 2.506 second time on his first ride in +40 to take that win, with Paul Hillard

DJ Watson, here with his father RJ, was the Youth Fast Time winner both days

claiming second on his Kawasaki triple, and Mike Pulver third. Trosper returned to run with +50, and carded a 2.576 second time in the second round for that class win. In Youth class action, Dakota ‘D.J.’ Watson took the 85cc class win and Youth Fast Time for the second straight day, doing it with a fine 2.625 second run on his Kawasaki, with Jeremiah Lyday following. In other youth action, Reece Hutton took the 50cc class win

for the second straight day with Levi Peters and Brodie Bennett second and third. Peters claimed the 65cc class win for the second time of the weekend.

Beaver Cycle kicks off 50th season Atwater, Wisconsin - May 2/ 3 By Hannah Lange

T

he Beaver Cycle Club brings 50 years of flat track racing to the 2009 District 16 season. The Beavers got busy this spring and re-surfaced the track with fresh clay. The Saturday night short track started off with beautiful weather, which stayed with us all weekend. Competing in both the Saturday short track and Sunday TT was rough on a few of the riders. Many left the track a little sore. Beavers were up early that morning working hard trying to smooth out a tolerable track for all the riders to enjoy. Some riders enjoyed the TT more than others. This weekend brought many new youth quad riders, always a good sign. It was very enjoyable to watch these riders. They seemed to be having lots of fun and enjoying themselves. On Saturday, the little XR50 riders had a hard run in their main. Challenging Aaron Jahnke was Keegan Hartgerink. These young boys battled it out the whole race. In the end, Jahnke came out with the win over Hartgerink. Following behind was Lange, Warmka, Mayer, Demaa, and Litvinoff. Also on Saturday, the Open Pro class was a very exciting race to watch. The battle be-

tween Broc Schwarzenbacher and DJ Slosser was a good one as they were each after the big win. At the finish line, Slosser tried to take the lead from Schwarzenbacher but it wasn’t enough as he settled for second.

Wilson masters Millville weekend Millville, Minnesota - May 24/ 25 By Rolfe Otterness

S

pring Creek Motocross Park held a two day event this year as has become tradition on Memorial Weekend. This year the weather was exceptional and there was a great turnout of entries, with over 700 on Sunday and a little less than 600 for Monday’s event. Competition was hot as many out-state riders were entered to get a taste of the track before the upcoming Amateur Regional. SUNDAY: Dean Wilson showed why he is one of the hottest amateur riders in the country as he won every moto he started for a perfect record. Wilson’s address now is in California, but he is really a Canadian, and is one of the hottest prospects to come south from the Great White North in quite some time. Romping in Sunday’s 250A class, Wilson went on to take a win in the first moto over Branden Miller, who was up from Tennessee and Iowa’s Gavin Faith. Local rider Nick Jackson and former arenacross star Chad Pederson rounded out the top five. Brandon Haas launched his YZ250 twosmoker into the lead of the second moto and Wilson quickly slotted into second place.

Bailey Kroone (49) and Dylan Smith control the start in Premix 7-8.

Haas maintained the lead for the first lap. Wilson shot by on lap two and began to edge away from Haas. Faith and Miller were next across the line with Pederson in fifth over Joe Perron. All the riders were running strong but Wilson went on to take a nice win. The 125 two-stroke class is a good class for kids moving up from 85s, and has some

fast riders. The first moto featured Kurtis Endres grabbing the early lead with Riley Kroone latching onto his slipstream. Joh Tate moved into third with Keenan Strom and Brady Rhode close behind. Over the next few laps Kroone pressured Endres closely and another tight battle developed between Tate, Strom and Rhode. Kroone made his move

near the end of the last lap, taking the lead and pulling out a few bike lengths over Endres by the flag. Tate held onto third despite the efforts of Rhode who finished right on his tail. Strom dropped a few seconds off their pace but held for fifth. Endres took the win in the second moto. Strom came through for second over Tate. Fourth place was captured by Rhode once again and the fleet female Kayla Solheid took fifth. MONDAY: Checking out the action on the mini bike track, you can find some tight competition on any given weekend. Action was hot in the 50 Micro Premix 78 class. Bailey Kroone edged out Josh Boaz to win the first moto with Austin Griffin holding on for third. Payton Harrison and Kaleb Carman rounded out the top five. Kroone surged to a good start in moto two but Boaz managed to get out front to take the win. Harrison and Griffin had quite a battle going over third for a few laps. Griffin, Harrison and Carman filled out the top five in that order once again when the checkered flag waved. Wilson led early in the first Open A moto and went on to take the win over Gavin Faith. Brandon Haas had a good ride to take third on his two-stroke, despite giving up a bit of torque for the start. Dalton Carlson came through for fourth with Scott “Scooter” Jendro hammering

the second lap and from there he started to check out. Kress was pressured then by Carlson who finally got by on lap four when Kress had a bit of trouble in the sandwash. At the end of the race, Wilson had about a twelve plus second lead over Carlson. Nick Jackson, Kress and Haas crossed the finish line in tight pack as they battled to the flag and rounded out the top five. Henry Miller jumped out to the early lead in the 85 Mini 9-12 class. Max Royalty and Jerry Robin latched onto his tail and were running in a bunch as the first lap was completed. Adam Maxfield and Josiah Hempen trailed them, through by a bit. Robin went to work on Royalty and made the pass on lap two. He stayed close to Miller and at the checkered was right on him, but Miller took the win by half a bike length. Royalty took third with Maxfield and Hempen still holding the 4-5 positions. The results from this race would stand as the second moto was canceled. Justin Summers had a long trip to Millville as he is from Florida, but he jumped out front early in the 250B moto. Jesse Wentland and Jake Loberg kept pace with him and were grouped together for the whole race. All three riders kept about the same Justin Summers, Jesse Wentland pace and Summers held for the win.

through for fifth. Faith led the pack to take the holeshot in moto two but dropped way back, presumably after trouble in the whoops. Jeremy Kress inherited the lead with Wilson and Carlson in tow. Wilson eased by in the whoops to lead

and Jake Loberg run 1-2-3 in 250B.

Loberg managed to make a desperate late-race move on Wentland as he passed him through the ditch right before the last turn and cut in to take the inside line away. Zach Williams and Luke Peters rounded out the top five. This class also had the second moto canceled. Unfortunately the weekend ended with a tragic event as long-time racer Terry Chumbley passed away after experiencing a hard crash in the +50 class. Chumbley was a long time racer from Iowa who has raced at Millville for many years. He went down hard in his second moto. Despite the best efforts of the medics he could not be revived. The remaining motos of the day were canceled out of respect for Terry and his family. RIP Terry....

Azzie Short Track Racing

The racing can’t get much tighter than it did in the +40 class.

Lake Mills, Wisconsin - June 20 By Dave Hollub

T

he summer we have been waiting for finally arrived just in time for the Aztalan Cycle Club’s short track race June 20th. In the days before the race the track was doused with severe thunderstorms that dropped several inches of rain, but short track referee Al Sumner stayed confident the race would go on. Friday he got a report from members at the track that the surface was so wet they couldn’t move equipment on it. Sumner told them to be out early Saturday as the weather was predicted to be hot and sunny all day. For once the weather report was accurate and the sun quickly dried the track enough that the dedicated crew could prepare it. By race time the surface was packed and Youth XR50 winner Aaron Jahnke.

ready to race. First out on the track were the Youth Quads. When the light turned green Mitchell Bignell blasted out into the lead with Tyler Schrimpf and Jesse Shaudvitis right behind. Payton Hall was able to move up into third and was pushing his way forward when a mechanical problem took him off the track. Schrimpf then moved back into third and held on to the finish. Aaron Jahnke led the XR50 racers out of the gate and held the lead to the finish. Keegan Hartgerink was second off the start with Bradley Warmka right behind. On lap two Hayden Zurn went outside and found the power to slip into third. First big bike class of the night was the Super Seniors and Larry Thompson hit the early lead but Ronald Bean had him in his Dick Mueller in the Classics class.

sites. On lap four Bean finally was able to stick the pass and took over the lead to the checkers. Duwayne Montgomery held third despite challenges from a hard riding Rick Saenz. The Classics class saw John Lovas pull the lead off the start with William Ferguson in second and Shane Sullivan third. Ferguson was charging hard and in every corner all race long shoved a wheel in on Lovas, but just couldn’t stick the pass. On the white flag lap Ferguson pulled alongside Lovas after corner one and looked like he was going to take the lead. Lovas found just enough extra throttle to take the checkers a half a bike length ahead of Ferguson. While the Open Pro class belonged to Jesse Janisch tonight it was not going to be easy. From the start he had constant pressure


from both Kyle Meiers and D.J. Slosser. Both challengers stayed within a bike length of Janisch and despite their constant push he maintained the lead to the finish to take the class win. Jacob Jesko was first to corner one in the 65cc class but Parker Lange and Samuel Wolf were right behind. On the final lap the hard pressing Lange was alongside Jesko in corner two and down the back straight. As the two racers went into corner three Jesko had the inside but Lange twisted the throttle hard and as they left corner four heading for the finish they were bar to bar and the win went to Lange by inches. Lange wasn’t finished. In the 85cc class it was Lange pulling the lead from the start with Charlotte Kainz and Andrew Schleicher right behind. On lap three Schleicher found enough room to slip past Kainz and started pushing Lange in every corner. With two laps to go Schleicher was positioned half a bike length back and in corner one was able to take away the lead from Lange. As both bikes powered down the back straight Lange held the gas on just far enough to come out of corner four back in front. The leaders had to work through lappers in the last lap, but the positions held. Later Lange commented “In 65cc I was going into a corner and Jacob hit a cone and it flew up and hit me on the finger. Then I was able to pass him on the inside on the last lap. In 85cc Andrew came up behind me and I saw him so I ran faster. He kind of got caught up

in lapped traffic a little bit so then Kainz came up a little too.” When asked about the lapper at the end he said “In practice I was going outside and I knew he was going outside too so I knew to go inside of him and I did. I want to thank Murray Salvage, Millennium Technologies, Advanced Land Speed, and my Mom and Dad.” For only two Quads on the track the Open A Quad class was as exciting as any race tonight. Rob Reitz was fast off the light but Jeremy Hunt quickly slipped past and began a tough job of protecting the lead. The challenge by Reitz continued in every corner. Hunt commented “Earlier in the night we had problems with my own quad so I got up on a second one we have here. It is a stock machine and I gave it all I’ve got. I just kept it out front, worked hard. We had a really good race it was a lot of fun. He had a bigger machine, I knew he was there, I just held my line and played it smart.” The night went almost as fast as the racing and was finished by 9:30 so everyone had the chance to do some bench racing while waiting for the results to be finalized. I got a chance to talk to Aztalan Short Track Referee and racer Al Sumner who said “The night went super. The track was fantastic thanks to the Duvall family and a bunch of others. There were no injuries, everything went smoothly, I am very happy and the riders are too. The rider turnout was good, it is

slightly down and we lost some of the Illinois riders because they were nervous because it has been raining constant down there the last few days.” The racing was great and the night could not have been any better. Hopefully the next race will see the riders that skipped tonight in attendance as well. Also be sure when you do make it out to follow Sumner’s advice and check out the grill for the fantastic food Ed Smulders is turning out. See you all in July.

Iowa Championship Series comes to Winterset Winterset, Iowa - May 17 By Mark D. Bonnell

R

iverside Raceway was finally able to get its first round of the 2009 Iowa State Championship Series in the books with a great mid-May race at its Winterset, Iowa facility. Riders from all across Iowa and from several surrounding states were on hand and eager to get their chance to learn the new obstacles at the popular facility. With over three inches of rain at the facility on Thursday and Friday, the decision was made to cancel the Saturday races and put the day’s effort into getting the track ready for Sunday’s races. It turned out to be a great decision for all involved, as the track was still a bit muddy for the practice sessions. It was clear that the track would improve to be challenging, yet fun and multi-lined in all areas. The conditions were something that many younger riders didn’t have much experience with, and it seemed to favor riders who had experience with deep ruts and rough and soft conditions. The 85cc Open class got underway with Brennan Myers, Titan Immel and Mason Kerr working their way out front at the end of the long, fast starting area. As the riders made the sharp turn, headed back towards the crowd and made their way over the new pop-up jump, it was Immel who proved to have the speed to pull into the lead as the rest of the class did their best to stay with him. Zach Tyer and Colton Hildreth had a battle of their own going and were able to move past Kerr by the end of the first lap. At the end of lap one, it was Immel just ahead of Myers. Tyer was in third with Hildreth in a very close fourth place. Zaxston Hans was next over the step-up, looking strong at the end of lap one. Lap two saw Hans and Kerr pass each other back and fourth as they made their way through the ruts and softer areas in the

wooded section of the track. A little further back in the pack, Logan Kentner and Taylor Simons were also running a fast pace and were doing their best to catch the leaders. Kentner ended up having some issues and dropped back a few positions as Simons motored away. When the riders crossed the finish line, Immel had worked himself into the lead by over ten seconds. Myers was next to cross the line with Tyer close behind. Hildreth and Kerr rounded out the top five. Moto two started out very similar to the first moto with Immel, Myers and Hildreth out front. But it was Kerr, Hans and Aaron Sparks who were putting on a show this time as they each rode as fast as they could to stay in the top five of the competitive class. Jacob Falk and Jordan Harnish also had some great moments while they did their best not to get hung up in the ruts, or go down in the deep sand whoops. At the finish, Immel was well ahead of Myers for the day’s win. Myers 2-2 finish gave him second overall. This time it was Hildreth in third and third for the day ahead of Kerr’s fourth place moto and class finish. Hans was able to hang on for fifth for the moto and for the day. The A classes also proved to be great to watch with Devin Reed winning both motos of 250A ahead of Jeremy Kress, but Kress came right back to edge out Reed in the Open A class. Travis Hodges, Colin Hickman and Todd Walton and the rest of the field also all had some great rides in the A classes with many close battles. Even though the week prior to the race brought some of the heaviest rain of the spring, the Riverside Raceway team was yet again able to put on another great race. Be sure and put their next event on your 2009 racing schedule.

Hill Drags come to Red Wing

Class Winners: Zach DeGross, Jared Gitter, Aaron Prebe, Marcus Winch, Brad Cain, and Zach Dierks. Red Wing, Minnesota - June 14 By Mike Nelson

I

f you like big modified dirt bikes going all out up a steep hill, and you also love the thrill of side by side winner take all drag racing, Red Wing was the place to be on what was a gorgeous and sunny Sunday afternoon. The Indianhead MC Club went out and bought a new set of drag lights and put together a great day of racing. Riders got a couple hours of practice time to take some starts and get used to the sensitivity of the staging light. Once staged, riders had to hold almost perfectly still to avoid red lighting. A double elimination bracket system was used. The five classes of double elimination would pay out for the top three finishers, and the top one or two riders from each class would advance into the eight man Top Eliminator bracket, a single elimination with a $1000 winner take all purse. The 250cc class opened up eliminations with Mitch Koester lined up against Aspen Busse. They got a clean start and ran side by side over the first two jumps, but Koester pulled a little extra and edged ahead of Busse up the final part of the hill to take the first win of the day. Other early round winners include Matt Bechel on a 250, and Austin Welch and Travis Rolph in 450cc elimination. Luke Parmeter and Zach DeGross each got first round wins in the 600cc class, and Kaleb Northrup powered his big Kawasaki up the hill ahead of Wally

Krech on his Indian to be among the first round winners in the Open class. The ATVs wrapped up the first round with Eric Barsness among those moving up. Competition tightened through the middle rounds, especially in the loser’s bracket where riders had to win or pack up their gear. Dion Welch had taken a first round loss in the ATV class, but fought back hard all day to stay in competition until the final round where Zach Dierks edged him out to represent the ATVs. Aaron Prebe edged out young gun Mitch Koester to be the only 250 with a shot at the big money. Jared Gitter and Jason Bach topped the 450cc class to advance their day toward the big prize. The 600cc class featured some of the best racing and when it all shook out a couple of young guys found themselves squared off in the finals. Marcus Winch worked his way to the top of the winner’s bracket in the class leaving Zach DeGross needing to beat him twice if he wanted to win the class from the loser’s bracket. DeGross was up for the task as he beat Winch from the right lane and then had to line up and face him again from the left. They got a clean start and tore up the hill virtually dead even. Over the third jump they got a little close in the center of the track but both got straightened out and blasted over the top side by side. Spectators had to wait for the lights to indicate DeGross was advancing. Winch would still advance and have a shot at revenge later.

With class eliminations complete, the top riders drew for positions in the Top Eliminator bracket, the first race saw Winch take his revenge on DeGross and move up. Jason Bach beat Brad Cain in the next race and Aaron Prebe just edged out Jared Gitter in a very close third race. Kirk Mueller, riding an open class Harley Davidson beat Zach Dierks’s ATV to get the last win of the first round. In the second round, Winch topped Bach in the first race and in a surprise finish, Aaron Prebe squeezed everything he could out of his 250 Honda to edge out Mueller’s big Harley. The final race put Prebe in the right lane on his 250 and Winch in the left on his big 600cc Honda. Both gave the starter their nod, the tree lit down the start and both riders got out clean. By the time they flew over the second jump, Winch had a slight advantage, but would need to stay perfect to beat the veteran. Winch’s bigger bike had all the power he needed to stay ahead of Prebe and he took the win. With the win, he took home the $1000 plus his class prize money, and perhaps most important of all, bragging rights.

Stead super at Log Road AHRMA opener Bronson, Michigan - May 24 By Bart Newman

V

intage racing has found a home at Log Road MX, and a strong turn out of AHRMA Great Lakes Regional riders made their way to the track where Vintage MX comes to race on day two of Memorial Day weekend. Judd Stead took the win in the all important second Vintage 50+ Novice class to claim and take the Badbrush Designed 1st place plaque back home to Owosso, MI. In moto one it was the pack rounding turn one in bunch as Dean Greene swung his Kawasaki wide in turn one to carry a ton of speed and the holeshot as the field headed into the whoops. Stead was a close second with Mark Schmalbach and Jim Pasenow in tow. Greene was riding well and had the smooth and sweeping Log Road track dialed in, and was soon stretching his lead as the moto wore on. Stead was within strik-

ing distance most of the moto but couldn’t string two laps together to make a charge at Greene. Pasenow found his way into third after battling with Schmalbach throughout the first couple of laps. In moto two Greene got another good jump of the line but it was Stead that controlled the track and the field as the gang disappeared to the back section of the facility. Stead looked to have found a couple of quick lines in moto one allowing him to hold off each and every attack Greene threw at him. Pasenow once again found himself in third again and was riding well. Stead (2-1) took the second moto win and overall while Greene crossed the finish line second. It seems like at every AHRMA race there is a cool bike or story to write about, and this Regional opener was no different as after 35 years of no motoing Dale Fisher came out to play. Fisher took the win in the Classic 125 Intermediate class on a cherry Chaney framed 125 Sach

Judd Stead had the speed when it counted to win the Vintage +50 Novice overall.

Corman battles back at South Fork Taylorville, Illinois - May 31 By James Pinckard

T

hat race was worth what it cost to get in today! That’s a statement I heard a guy say after the last Four stroke moto between Arenacross Champion Jeff Gibson and Suzuki rider Kyle Corman. When the riders and fans showed up for Round 3 of the Midwest Best Series they knew it had factory support from Suzuki, Kawasaki and Husky. They were hoping for a great day of racing, and got it. During the first set of motos it seemed that no one could match the pace of Jeff Gibson after he won Open A, 250A and the Four stroke class. But when the riders came back to the gate for the second set of motos, Kyle Corman had a different attitude. “I am just having a bad day” is what Kyle said after the first set of motos. After taking some time to re-focus, he went to the line with a new vision, and when the gate dropped for Open A Corman blasted to the front of the pack taking the moto win over Gibson. In the 250A class the focus remained and Corman again took the win and the overall. In Four stroke, Gibson launched to the front with Corman in fourth off the start. Corman had to work his way past Aaron Gulley and Jason Hussey, which proved to be no easy task. Going into the last lap Corman made contact with Gibson and I swear every person at the facility lined the fence to watch. The whole way around the track they were never apart, and coming into the last straight they were side by side! Over the tunnel jump, Corman held it wide open and made a pass but carried to much speed into the last turn, and Gibson used his experience to tuck under and take the moto win by one wheel length! After the race Corman went over to Gibson and told him good race. Gibson then told Corman “I have not had to race that intense since the Arenacross season!” Yamaha rider Alex Rossetto is a former Team Green rider, great motocrosser and as of late a pro flat tracker. When I saw Alex in the morning he told me “I have not done this for a while but I am the two lap champ. For two laps I can still go as fast as anyone here, but after that I’m done.” In the +30A class Aaron Copeland took the first moto win with Rossetto second and Aric Walton third. In the second moto, as I was watching Rossetto lead I could hear his words in my head. Lap five came he was still out front. When the checkered flag flew Rossetto took the moto and overall win! Copeland finished second for the moto and overall. That is how little Alex Rossetto grew up to become “five lap champ”.

Matt Mellott. A battle for third developed between as Mellott made a pass on Ivey as the white flag is waved. Baker took the win ahead of Briney and Mellott. Buffum pushed through the pack to lead early in the second moto, but Baker made the pass for the lead coming over the double after the whoop section. Andrew Briney was third. The third lap had the fans are on their toes as Buffum and Briney went back and fourth, fighting over second. Briney stalled his bike in the fourth lap, and Buffum got a load off his chest no longer having to defend his position. Ivey and Mellott got around Briney as Baker went on to take the win. The Open B riders lined up, and when the gate fell it was Dustin McDonald pulling the pack through the first corner. Ben Damhoff was second, ahead of Ryan Verachtert. Damhoff fell and Verachtert went around him in the back section. Next it was Verachtert sliding out. Into the second lap, as McDonald led. The second spot was being fought over by Kyle Entwistle, Kevin Westart, and Leland Bragg before Westart and Bragg tangled and went down. At the start of the third lap it was McDonald, Entwistle, and Verachtert who had caught back up to third. Entwistle made a nice corner pass to get by

unday arrived without a cloud in the sky, temperatures were warm and rain from the night before made the track prime for what would be a great day of racing. 250C was the fourth moto of the day with fifteen riders. Zachery Zefo out of Galesburg, IL pulled the holeshot to take the lead. Right away there was a battle for second between Nick Stiles and Luke Shafer. Then as they went into back section, Tony Damhoff moved up and passed Shafer for third. The second lap got even more intense as Damhoff got around Stiles. Zefo had a ten second lead, with Damhoff in second, and Stiles third. The riders pushed on, holding their positions for the next couple laps. Zefo took the win with Damhoff second, and Stiles third. Zefo pulled the second moto holeshot, but Damhoff quickly took the lead, with Stiles in third. Flying through the whoops in the second lap, Matt Spears battled with Stiles. Zefo heated up the third lap making a pass around Damhoff for the lead, and then holding on for the win. Stiles also held tough... finishing third. Six riders signed up for the Open A class, and as the gate dropped, Charles Buffum pulled the holeshot. Over the double-double, Justin Baker got around Buffum for the lead while Andrew Briney secured third. Buffum slid out coming around the corner before the back section in the forth lap, and was passed by Briney, Richard Ivey, and Lance McCaw made the trip

from nearby Aledo to race in the +40 class.

McDonald, but then went over the bars, tumbling into the dirt. Entwistle took the win with McDonald second, and Ben Damhoff third. Almost filling the gate, Open B started thier second moto. Entwistle grabbed the holeshot, followed by Damhoff who moved into the lead. Tables almost turned as Entwistle bumped Damhoff in an effort to retake the lead. Flying through the whoops, Entwistle got around Damhoff for the lead. Entwistle took the win. Damhoff finished second ahead of Bragg. Tri-City made some small improvements to the track. As the day went on, riders seemed to adjust to the modifications easily. Race fans had to deal with the heat while watching some intense action.

Wabeno Dual Sport a winner Wabeno, WI - May 30/31 By Gordon Lunde

F

riday May 29th, 6pm, we arrive in beautiful downtown Wabeno, Wisconsin. As the Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders latest t-shirt says, “A quaint northern drinking town with a dual sport problem”. How true that is. We, that is myself and my beautiful bride, Laurel, park the camper and get it set up for the weekend. Our “camp” is located in downtown at the Wabeno Fairgrounds which is also the ride headquarters. With cooperation from a few fellow riders we are quickly ready for the weekend activities. Those activities began with registration and sound check which both went smoothly. The stock exhaust on my DR650 made the sound check an easy pass. With a 91db limit my test result at 88db was good to go. The testers were laughing and commenting that I probably couldn’t hit 91db if I tried… they were right. The next item on the agenda was dinner and a few beverages at a local watering hole just a few blocks away from camp. Several other riders were there planning

The Wabeno rides have become hugely popular.

their trips, and swapping ride stories from years past. The big mud hole, steep, slippery, rocky hill climb and talcum powder dusty trail stories that kept all entertained late into the evening. Since the Saturday portion of this ride was to be 140 miles of asphalt and gravel roads, two track, ATV trail, single track and some places no track I decided to call it an early night and get some rest. Saturday morning arrived with beautiful blue skies and no threat of poor weather in sight.

Rider’s meeting was held and soon we were on the road. Northern Wisconsin provides some great back roads to venture out on and when you mix in the national and state forest roads, private property trails, ATV trails, and single track the ride becomes truly a delight in

dual sport riding. During the days ride we crossed the Wolf and Peshtigo rivers multiple times with beautiful scenery at each crossing. One stop along the Peshtigo provided a chance to wash off some of the days dust and grime with a towel passed among riders, damp with ice cold

water right out of the river. Dust was the rule for this ride. Even though several days of rain preceded the ride, the gravel roads were extremely dry and provided some interesting riding. There were times I had to back off the throttle and drop way back from the rider in front of me because I could not see the road! If you were more than second in line in a group you were pretty much eating the powder. Lunch came at the gorgeous 12 Foot Falls State Park. A great place to relax and grab a little lunch provided by the Wisconsin Off Road Vehicle Association (WOHVA). These folks are allies in the battle to keep, maintain and increase our off road riding opportunities in the state. The afternoon provided a little extra challenge as there was a little trail marking problem and some riders ended up doing “hero” sections that they did not intend to do. Hero sections are mostly single track that should not be ridden by the inexperienced rider. To say they are challenging would be a miscue. At about 142 miles on my odometer we ended up back at the starting point, tired, dusty and ready for the evening’s festivities. This ride is a fund raiser for the Paul W. Carbonne Cancer Research Center at the University of Wisconsin Madison campus. Founder and past president of Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders (WDSR) John Newton started this ride five years ago with the intent of it being a fund raiser. After thinking for awhile

To date WDSR has donated over $40,000 to the Carbonne Research center. Each year the organizers hold a raffle for a new motorcycle, and smaller raffles for rider gear, bike parts and other goods and services. There are also plenty of door prizes to go around. This all follows a nice dinner provide by one of the local churches. It is always a great evening. With those events over, the rest of the evening, and for some the early morning hours are spent reliving the ride and other “war” stories from the trails, hence that new t-shirt I told you about. Sunday morning arrived with the same great weather as Saturday and we were looking at a 120 mile ride. Because of Saturday night’s festival atmosphere, and the possibility some folks may over indulge, Sunday’s ride is usually a bit easier than the day before. I did notice a few less people out on the trails, Woods 200 coming up on September 26/ 27 and definitely fewer on the “long” route. this year. The fall colors, north woods scenery This was my third year riding this spring and the thirty variety chili feed make it a must event and it always makes me want more so do ride.

he final step to Loretta Lynn’s dude ranch filled the gates at RedBud MX as over 760 Amateur National hopefuls went to war for the chance to compete

at America’s motocross vacation destination. Leading the way in the “A” class was the Cincinnati Kid, Justin Weeks, who took the checkered flag first in every “A” moto making the top prize in the 250A, 250A Pro-Sport, 450A and 450A Pro-Sport his. Weeks was on his game all weekend and turned great starts in to moto wins - 12 of them to be exact. In the 250A class it was the Pennsylvania Team Green rider Lowell Spangler in the runner-up spot after battling Shawn Rife, Greg Durivage and Drew Yenerich respectfully. Spangler (4-33) was consistently fast beating second moto runner up Rife (3-2-6) who had a last moto that saw him fight back from a horrible start to fill up the podium. Weeks was on a roll on the little bikes in spite a reputation as a better big bike pilot, and was not to be denied. Sunny Drake (2-4-6) was fast in moto two making a strong start pay off as he chased Weeks all moto in the first go around. With two other moto finishes in the top ten, Drake was the runner up in the 250A Pro-Sport class. Durivage (4-5-4) was once again smack dab in the thick of things and running near the front in all three motos, not once finishing outside of the top five to claim third overall for his efforts. Yenerich (5-9-3) put his Yamaha on the box in moto three, grabbing fourth overall to beat Dustin Pulley, (6-7-5) who was one of the few in the class running a two smoker, by one spot. There is bad news for the Masters +50 class as former Amateur National Champion Craig Pickett turns 50 in June, and the Michigan flyer took three wins in three tries to lock up the overall. Denny Swartz has had success at RedBud in the past and the Ohio Honda rider led the Masters +50 class around turn one in two out of three motos. In both motos Swartz was run down by the energizer bunny-like Pickett who rode off with three


moto wins and his choice of gate picks at Loretta’s place. Swartz (2-2-3) was the runnerup in the first two motos backed up with a third in moto three locking up second overall. Jeff Steinrock (4-3-4) was steady and smooth putting himself in the show. With a big prize up for grabs at the conclusion of the weekend, the racing was tight, the stakes were high and the RedBud crew did an outstanding job providing an even battle field for one and all.

Thomsen grabs Pine Ridge cash Athelstane, Wisconsin - May 24 By Pete Emme

came out fifth or sixth and just tried to be patient because it was a long race and I knew riders would have their problems with it. I got into second behind Dylan and then he made a mistake and I got around him for a second but I made a bad line choice and he’s a good rider and he stayed ahead of me.” DeClerc, “I worked my way up to second early, then got into the lead. When I went down I got lucky, and was up right away. Matt and I changed positions there but I stayed ahead for the win.” Thomsen had it dialed in once again as he took the second moto holeshot. Dylan Martin and Dylan Narel both hit the turf hard

ig money was up for grabs at Pine Ridge Raceway in the quiet north woods of northeast Wisconsin. The Forest County Potawatomi threw in a $3000 purse to the 250A and Open A classes and close to an additional $2500 from the entries were added for a total of almost $5500. That’s a lotta money to be taken but the odds were against each rider as the 250A class had 36 entries, and Open A had forty. Quite high considering an average turnout is normally under 20 at a District 16 points paying event. This was also a Northern Cup event with Kawasaki and Yamaha conMarshall Maas looking tingency options as well. great in 250B1. Being this was a Memorial Day weekend event, the event was held on Sunday so riders could enjoy the day off on Monday to honor the Americans of our armed forces. Hint hint... Pine Ridge, why don’t we make this weekend a double header next year and make a solid two days of racing. Riders from Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota combined for a total of 530 entries to take on the track that carves through pine trees and loamy sands of this beautiful setting. Cody Thomsen out of Nisswa, Minnesota pulled the opening holeshot in 250A with Green Bay, WI’s Dylan DeClerc tucked in tight behind. Top contender as of late, Dustin Pulley had a difficult time after the rhythm section as a rider in front of him checked up before entering the left hand sweeper sending Pulley to the back of the pack. DeClerc took over the lead on the first lap while fellow KTM rider Matt Maier also moved around Thomsen. DeClerc was making some good ground aboard his two stroke while Maier’s 250F was dogging in the thicker sand corners. With two laps two go, DeClerc tipped over in the corner after the finish line, but got going quickly to keep the lead. Maier pulled alongin the first corner, letting the rest of the pack side DeClerc near the powerline section, but go.

gled. He remounted in the 34th position, but was simply faster than everyone on the track as his lap times were blitzing to say the least. Maier worked all the way up to fifth in eight hard laps to finish third overall. An outstanding ride indeed. Although Maier’s ride was impressive, it was Thomsen taking the second moto win. He edged out DeClerc for the overall having went 3-1 for first, beating DeClerc’s 1-3. Peterson put in an impressive ride in the second moto finishing second. “It was pretty gnarly out there, I had a pretty good holeshot. It was eight laps, that’s a long moto. I was close for a little while and I had a good outside line in the powerline section to keep it close. I’m really happy with second as the first moto didn’t go so well as I crashed twice,” said Peterson. Thomsen got the lion’s share of the cash. In the ultra competitive Women’s class it was Elisha Kessel taking home the first moto win. Andrea Walsdorf had a nice holeshot but Kessel moved out to the lead and kept it there while Walsdorf had troubles sending herself to the tenth spot. Brittany Lemke made a charge but it wasn’t enough as Kessel beat everyone to the checkers in moto one. The second moto had Lemke out front with Walsdorf trying her best to get around. Lemke pulled out to a nice lead while Walsdorf and Kessel would swap positions until Kessel twisted the throttle a little harder over the jumps to gain a little ground on Lemke. Walsdorf had troubles in the rhythm section as she stalled it and had a hard time restarting. Kessel made a brilliant pass as she doubled her Honda past the leader Lemke and checked out for the decisive second moto win. Kessel took the overall via 1-1 tallies while Lemke held onto second overall with 2-3 scores. The Open A class was full, actually, overfull. Forty riders were on the line for the first moto and it was Flyin Ryan Gilbert out to the lead with the holeshot. Yamaha rider Dustin Pulley was all over Gilbert during the opening laps of the first moto and finally got around the leader, something that Pulley needed after a disappointing 250A finish. Pulley was absolutely flying when all of a sudden, poof. His motor went sending the gasping rider back to the pits. Gilbert took the lead while Maier was hot on his heels with Dylan DeClerc third. Maier eventually got around Gilbert and stayed there until the end of the moto. Rounding out the top five were Gilbert, DeClerc, Cody Thomsen and Jared Schudel. “I lined up on the inside once again and

came out in sixth or seventh and I had the same plan, and I just wanted to keep my eyes on Gilbert and Pulley. Pulley had some troubles and then I got on Ryan for the next two laps and made the pass on him,” said Maier. “I don’t really think about the money given by the Potawatomi, I just try to come out here and race because the racing is fun. The money is an added bonus, but to race in a large class like this, that’s what makes it fun and that’s why I come,” said Maier when questioned about the large purse. The second moto had Gilbert up front once again, but Maier quickly made a pass to garnish the second moto win and the overall via his 1-1 tallies. Gilbert took an impressive second overall with a 2-2 while DeClerc rode to consistent finishes of 3-3. There were two very impressive riders from northeast Wisconsin that took some big moto victories at Pine Ridge. These two riders cashed in very well with contingency as they took overall wins in the 250B1 and B2 classes. CJ Greaves used his starting prowess in the first 250B1 moto and then just put it on cruise control to get the opening moto win. “I got out of the gate really good and then just tried not to make any mistakes out there, and I got the win,” said Greaves. The second moto went just as well as Greaves pulled the holeshot on his Kawasaki. Greaves went 1-1 on the day, and also backed that up in the

Open B class with two moto wins. Marinette native Adam Reek took a mediocre start and just put his head down in the opening moto of 250B2 to charge his way into the second spot, although it was a ways back to moto winner Kody Kamm who completely demolished the class on his KTM. “I got a bad holeshot, I just got pinched off. I started to move the bikes out of my way in that first moto,” said Reek. The second moto had Reek once again fighting his way up to the front. Kamm had went down and had his work cut out for him. Reek moved up to the second spot behind Josh McCole, and then got by him in the whoops on the final lap to take the win, good enough for the overall. “I got a third place start and then I made some time up in the rough uphill and finally got around him in the whoops, I can’t believe I won,” said Reek. Reek and Greaves are pretty good friends as well as both being only thirteen years old. Remember that, only thirteen, and these kids can already haul the mail!

Just plain fun at South Fork Taylorville, Illinois - June 7 By James Pinckard

R

ound four of the Midwest Best Series swept back through Southfork. With backing from the FCA and others it makes these races great family events. What once was old is new again. One of the fastest growing classes is the 125 twostroke class. It is bringing back some old bikes, some old riders, but more important it is bringing new riders to the races. One rider who just started racing is Honda rider Kyle Baum, “It was a cheap bike, and fun to ride so I am going to stay in this class.” One other thing is the cost to maintain the 125 is only a fraction of what it costs to maintain a four stroke. In the 125 class Suzuki rider Beau Hays was smoking! In the first moto Hays finished second to Yamaha rider David Howard but Howard was unable to make the call for the second moto. Hays took the win and overall. Second overall went to Honda rider Nick Ovington who put in one of the best races I have ever seen him ride with a 4-2 moto score. Third went to Honda rider Bill Akers. Bill has history in our Illinois motocross family as his ran the old MX51 park. The last race we were at Bill said, “are those 125 two strokes? I am going to break mine out and come race it!” That is just what he did and his reward was third overall for the day. How did Kyle Baum do? He raced, he had fun, he had family there to cheer him on. Sounds like a good day. Another two-stroke class for now that has some impressive riders is the 50 classes. The 50Sr class was won by Larry Smith after a battle with Jason Gepford and Devid Si-

monson. Smith is on track to being track champion and last year at the end of the season he had to have a helper or two to pack out all his hardware. In the 50Jr class Brayden Childress took the win with Timothy Lowe second and Josh Franklin third. The real story was that we welcomed another rider at their first race ever. Deagan Eads, welcome to motocross! One class that grew up on two strokes but no longer uses them very often is +45. Hall’s Husky rider Don Large looked great on his new bike and took the moto and overall wins. Honda riders Kevin Jones and Gary Bruner took second and third. The point of the story is old bike or new bike, Old Dude or Young Dude (or lady)... Get out on the track and have some fun!

T

he Goshen Iron Horsemen ran their spring hill climb on May 17th and Chris Huizenga emerged as the top rider with two class wins, and the fastest time of the day. His first win came in the 250cc class where his first round ride of 4.084 on his Honda was the fastest of the round, and actually held up well in to the second when he beat it himself in the 600cc class. Alex Erickson and Justin Ferski claimed second and third. His second win came in the 600cc class where his 4.156 second ride on his KX500 was the best of the first round, but ‘Fast Andy’ Fortner slipped under him with a 3.948 second run in the second round. Huizenga responded with a sizzling 3.795 second high flying ride on his second attempt, retaking the lead and setting a new Fast Time which held up for the rest of the day. Joe McGurer and Jeff Jack also had double class win days, with McGurer also setting the youth fast time of the day. The 14 year old McGurer got his first win the 85Sr class with consistently fast runs of 6.240 and 6.225 on his KX85, the second being the fastest of the day in the youth classes. Amber Fraedrich

was second with Marshall Dillon third. McGurer’s second win came in the 125cc class where he was also consistently fast, carding times of 5.864 and 5.918 seconds. Steve Laughlin claimed second with a 6.381 second run with Jarred Dillon third. Veteran rider Jeff Jack made a long drive from Iowa worthwhile with two wins, his first in the 200cc class. He turned a 5.687 on his KTM, while Kyle Galloway took second in 5.945 seconds on his KDX200. Jack’s second win came in the +50 class with two more good rides on his KX500. Joel Hosko was his closest challenger on his Honda with Randy Dillon claiming third. In other Youth class action, the Garriott brothers had a good day. Clint Garriott took the 65cc class win with rides of 6.851 and 6.929 seconds on his KX65, with Andrew Fortner second and Dylan Dekam third. Clint’s brother Cole claimed the 85Jr class win on his Honda with a 6.960 second run with Eathen Bartenback second. Dylan Hoogenboom was the best of the 50cc class riders with a 141 foot effort, edging Emily Baldwin who went 139 feet. Third place was claimed by yet another Garriott, Cline. In Quad class action, Evan Zimmerman was the best of the 2-Stroke class with a 5.505 second time with Ryan Garriott second by only 1/1000 of a second. Jody Timmins took the win in the 4stroke Quad class with a 5.456 second time, beating Marty Thayer (5.563) by just over a hundredth of a second.

Nuke 4 Outraces Storms Byron Illinois - June 7 By Dave Hollub

A

ll week the weather reports kept getting worse as storms moved towards Illinois, but Aaron Vincer of Motosports Park must have been living right. Saturday brought just enough rain that the crew didn’t need to water the track, but still storms were predicted for overnight. When I checked the track phone message it said the race was on so I left rainy Wisconsin in hopes of drier weather ahead. When I first found Vincer he was studying the latest weather radar and informed me that in about thirty minutes the light rain would stop and there would be a break long enough to get the full schedule in. Sure enough, by the time the riders meeting was called it was cloudy, but no rain was falling. As the day went on the weather stayed dry and eventually the sun even made an appearance. Just watching practice, it was obvious the track prep was perfect and soon lines were developing. Every rider coming off their practice session appeared pleased they decided to make the trip. The 14-24 class took the first gate drop and Derek Whitney grabbed a huge lead before the holeshot line. Jacob Kelsey was in second, but Zach Coons quickly moved past him and began chasing Whitney. By the end of lap one Kelly Brown was in third, but Kelsey wasn’t giving up his position easily. On lap two in the back section Kelsey once again took over third and held it to the finish. Coons was on the pipe as he chased Whitney, eventually cutting an early lead to less than ten bike lengths. In Moto two it was once again Whitney taking the lead, this time Brown was in second followed by Kelsey. Coons quickly moved up from a fifth place start to the back tire on Brown’s bike. Coons made the pass on lap two just before heading into the back section to take over second. On lap three Whitney got a bit cross rutted in the new hairpin corner before the finish straight and this gave Coons a chance to close in. On lap four as they rounded the start straight

Coons was less than three seconds behind. Whitney was able to hold him off and grab the win as well as the overall. As the +30A class headed onto the track it was Adam Martin powering his Kawasaki through the holeshot with Jason Kloptowsky right behind. As they hit the downhill halfway through the first lap Kloptowsky took over the lead. Martin now had his hands full as he protected every line from the challenges brought on by Jeff Curry. On lap two, before they headed into the back section, Curry dove in for the pass and started after Kloptowsky. Curry battled with Kloptowsky the rest of the moto but was unable to find a big enough opening to complete a pass. Moto two once again saw Martin grabbing the holeshot but this time Curry was second around the corner, and ready to move up. By the time everyone returned into view at the halfway point of the first lap Curry was leading with Kloptowsky in third. This order held to the checkers giving Curry the overall. Kloptowsky’s 1-3 was good for second ahead of Martin. Joseph Dalzell jumped into the lead down the first rhythm section as SuperMini hit the track, and Alexander Nagy took up a spot right alongside his rear tire. Cody Williams grabbed third while Jordan Mackiewicz pushed from fourth. By the end of lap one the running order was set and stayed to the finish. Moto two took off and once again Dalzell was out front quickly, but before lap two could begin a red flag came out stopping the moto. On the second gate drop Dalzell took his third holeshot of the day and began stretching out a lead with Nagy once again settled firmly into second. Mackiewicz was running third with a determined Williams looking for a spot to make a pass. Williams found an opening midway through lap one to take over and finish third. When 250B took the gate drop it was Nicholas Latour edging out Zach Coons by less than half a bike length. Coons quickly took over the lead and settled into a comfortable pace ahead Latour. Ryan Verachtert rode out the moto in third.

While the front three were running on open track Travis Ruchti had a battle going to protect fourth from constant challenges from Dale Kathan and Nate Knottnerus. By the end of lap three Kathan was running alongside Ruchti but couldn’t muster the traction to make the pass. Ruchti held on and claimed fourth at the checkers. In moto two Latour once again fired his Kawasaki off to the holeshot with Verachtert right behind. Coons was in fourth before making a quick move to pass Lukas Cobian. Coons made his next pass at the top of the uphill going into the back section as he jumped over Verachtert. Cobian took over third as Verachtert went down. Ruchti was battling with Broc Pagni for fourth and as they fought it out they were able to catch and pass Cobian. Ruchti held third to the finish. On lap three Coons was running on the rear wheel of Latour until just after the start straight where he made the pass for the lead. Coons won the overall with Latour (2-2) second, and Ruchti third. The Nuke series runs the Open A class as the premier race of the day and today was no exception. Derek Whitney pushed his Yamaha across the holeshot just edging out Jason Kloptowsky. Whitney led the pack out of sight to the back of the track, but when they came back out it was Kloptowsky in the lead with Cameron Lansing on his back wheel. Jeff Curry was running in third. Midway through lap two Lansing made the pass and was looking to gain some breathing room, and Kloptowsky now had Curry challenging him. Whitney quickly came back from sixth position, and was looking to get by Curry as soon as he could. In the next lap Whitney saw a crack big enough to slide through to take over third. Now it was Kloptowsky in Whitney’s sites and after sticking a wheel in for most of lap four he finally dug in and made the pass for second. By this time Lansing had pulled away enough that he took the checkers in first. Whitney was determined in moto two to grab and hold the lead. He shot out to the holeshot a bike length in front of Kloptowsky with Daniel Sanders third. Whitney

quickly put about a four second lead on the pack and held the breathing room to the finish. A five bike battle developed for second with Kloptowsky fighting to protect his claim on the position. Sanders was in third, Curry fourth, Lansing fifth, and Kelly Brown sixth. The five riders were running less than two seconds from second to sixth. As lap four began Lansing moved up into fourth. Over the table jump just before the finish Sanders edged out Kloptowsky for second. Whitney (2-1) was first overall, Lansing (1-4) second, and the last second charge earned Sanders a hard fought third overall. Whitney later commented, “The track was really good, they didn’t water much because we were expecting rain. It held off and the track is actually kind of tacky making for some good racing. In 14-24 I got a good start and stayed out front. In Open A I grabbed a start and my

bike was running great, but I ended up stalling it in the fourth or fifth corner. I caught up and almost got Lansing at the checker flag. The second moto was awesome, I got a good start and was able to check out and get some breathing room. It went really good. The last two laps I

tried to not make any mistakes and run a smooth race and it worked out in the end. I need to thank my sponsors SF Performance, Port Yamaha, EVS, DeCal Works, One Shop products, MX Results, Tom Zont, and Smith Optics.” Aaron Vincer couldn’t have been more pleased with how the day turned out. “Everybody survived, it was a long day and I cannot believe we were lucky enough to have a race. When I got up this morning I thought for sure I was going to have to leave the - ‘We cancelled the race message’. We kept at it and got lucky, the track was perfect. We had a very good rider turnout, especially considering the ugly looking radar in the morning. Everybody gets up and looks at the weather radar and could have stayed home. If it was me I probably would have stayed home but luckily these guys are smarter than I am and showed up. The turnout this season has actually

been pretty good, and the Nuke series is alive and well. We aren’t having record numbers but the sport is still healthy and I like seeing that. I can’t say thanks enough to everyone that showed up.” As Aaron said, the riders that turned out enjoyed a perfect track and day. The racing, as always is the case at Nuke races, was exciting to watch with some great battles whether for the lead or fifteenth place, everyone was pushing it to their limits.

Hulser, Wisconsin - June 13 By Doug Forstner

T

he I-94 Supercross Five race series got underway on June 13th in Hustler, WI. The races are District 16 sanctioned, and this has become a nice series with $4,000 in prizes and awards at the end of it. You might not want to miss the remaining rounds. All classes pretty much run and the competition is fierce in just about every class. In typical su-

Chris Staige and #184 Rex Stephenson were this close all day.

percross fashion, practice is run followed by heat races. Points are awarded on the main event finishes only. You only have to race four out of the five races to qualify for the end of the series awards. Anytime you go to a race for the first time, it’s always a good idea to mapquest or google your way to the track. Back in the day, we would stop and ask farmers, or just about anyone who would acknowledge that we were lost. Anyway, once I hit Hustler, WI it was a matter of finding the track. Of course, you know you are in a little Wisconsin town when there is a huge sign right in the middle of the county road pointing to the race track and pit area. Once I got to the track I went to walk it. The track is laid out right in town, next to a cornfield, so it doesn’t look like anything special until you get on it. The soil is awesome, and traction was abundant everywhere. The only starting line that maybe longer is Marshfield, and Sugar Camp. Plenty of room to “stretch the legs” as they put it. The best part is the track flows nicely and offered the huge spectator crowd ample viewing. Rider turnout was on the low side, but the racing action sure wasn’t. The track offers multiple lines and many chances to pass or set up your competition. The 50cc Peewee class had Rylee Schiller taking the win. She had plenty of

FIVE EVENTS YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OUT ON competition but was able to attack the track and hold on for a main event win. 450C action saw local rider Trevor Olson on his Yamaha pretty much lead from start to finish. Kyle Whysol and Charles Streeter rounded out the podium spots. The 85cc action was awesome as ten riders lined up for the main event. Trytan Stewart, Rollin Peterson and Jordan Schiller pulled out front early in the main. Stewart ran with Schiller for a few laps until Schiller was able to put a little distance between himself and the others. Peterson, Cody Graham and Jared Georgeson were trading positions throughout the entire main. Schiller took the win followed by Stewart and Peterson. It was Jason Haugrud in the Quad class who got the holeshot and led “almost” the entire way. Jay Mittelstaedt was on a mission, and making up ground on Haugrud. With two laps to go, Mittelstaedt made the pass for the lead and went on to victory. Haugrud ended up second ahead of Jaden Bailey. The next race in the series will be July 22nd in Portage, WI so you still have time to plan on

it, and qualify for the series awards. The series then will head to Tomah, WI and back to Hustler for a double header Aug 28/ 29th.

Hill Climbers rip thru Mankato Mankato, Minnesota - June 21 By Mike Nelson

With the hill staying tacky and the big bikes running late in the first round, fans watched to see if the hill record would drop to under 6 seconds. Those big 750s and Open bikes just couldn’t quite transfer all that power to the hill and finished their first runs in the low 6 second range, just behind Winch’s record. Then at the beginning of the second round, in an odd turn of events that brought the perfect combination of hill condition, riding skill, power, and just the right amount of crazy, fans watched in shock when Tyler Clark grabbed a big handful of throttle out of the hole on his wheeler, flew over the step up, and used all of the hill to make that big right turn never letting up on the gas he slid all the way across the face of the hill and grazed the left wall rocketing up the middle section. Still full throttle he held on and flew over the last jump breaking the lights at the top on a wild ride with most of the riders running late in the round. a new hill record of 6.047 seconds, and first place in the ATV class.

he Father’s Day hill climb hosted by the Kato Cycle Club has been a long standing tradition in Mankato, Minnesota with great hill climbing action and awesome fan support. This year’s climb was no different despite the light mist and showers that fell on and off for most of the day. Fans didn’t seem to mind and the large crowd was treated to some record breaking action as the periodic drizzle provided just enough moisture to keep the hill tacky and fast most of the day. Riders showed up from all over the Midwest to take on this unique hill with the step up jump out of the hole followed by that big right turn up the hill with a newly reworked jump over the top. The ATVs were first up as usual with the guys from Missouri taking charge in the first round. Stephen Clark found the sweet spot thru the corner and tore up the hill in just over 7 seconds letting the crowd know that the hill would be fast for those who could find the right line. Once the ATVs had things broken in, it was time for the youth classes to get their turn. Olivia Bach made a triumphant return to the micro-mini class after a nasty spill sidelined her over a year ago. She had some trouble on her first run, but found her stride on the second, topping all riders and challenging the top of the hill with a nice run of 238’ on her little KTM. The future of the sport continues to look bright with more new riders taking to the hill again this weekend. Local riders Colton Landwer and Jordan Schmidt ran in the micro-minis along with 5yr old Leigha Grussendorf who surprised everyone, hooking up out of the hole on her second run and getting some serious air, training wheels and all, over the step on the step up and hanging on for a nice run of over 100’. Landwer finished an impressive second for the day taking his little bike beyond the 200’ mark. Local rider and Kato club member Marcus Winch has come out of nowhere this year, and is looking to dominate the middle classes. Winch topped current district champion Aaron Prebe in the 250cc class, and finished a solid second in the 450cc class, just a tenth of a second behind Jared Gitter and again ahead of Prebe. Winch wasn’t done there, and screamed up the hill on his first 600cc class run with a temporary new record time of 6.167 seconds. With a happy Father’s Day to his dad and Kato Club president John Winch, Marcus finished the day with two firsts and a second in class competition, and sec- Tyler Clark holds on around ond in the King of the Hill at the end the corner on his record-breaking run. 44

580 Entries at Aztalan Lake Mills, Wi - June 14 By Dave Hollub

J

ust in time to welcome summer the racing at Aztalan Cycle club heated up big time. As the temperature headed for the first eighty degree day of the season the 580 entries that showed up responded by putting on a show for everyone here. It also appears that the club’s track crew is doing exactly what is needed to provide a great track. Throughout the day the track developed multiple lines in most corners as well as some deep ruts. The unlimited A class started the day off with an exciting battle as Matthew Menzer and Joseph Dretzka exchanged positions out front numerous times. Menzer grabbed a quick lead but Dretzka hunted him down and by lap three was out front. Before the lap ended Menzer was back in front. This exchange continued all the way to the checkers with Dretzka getting the win. Moto two was just as exciting with Dretzka once again taking the win and the overall with Menzer finishing second and Ryan Hughson third. In 125Jr. Brandon Clifford grabbed a big holeshot to start moto one. By the time the class was hitting the plateau Clifford had gained some distance on second place Tyler Elliott. When

positions. Midway through lap two Kraemer passed Elliott. Cody Steuck was fourth until Brandon Marescalco was able to make a pass in the West section. In moto two Kraemer jumped out to a quick lead with Fredrick pushing hard and Elliott in third. On lap four Fredrick dug in and made the pass to take the lead before hitting the plateau and then held on to the checkers. Kraemer (1/2) was the overall winner with Fredrick (6/1) taking a hard fought second as Marescalco (4/3) filled the podium. Stephanie Steuck was first onto the track in the Women’s class for moto one but Kaylen Pellmann quickly took over the lead. By the time everyone headed over the plateau Pellmann was building some breathing room for herself. Jade Wennlund was running in third when she went down in the sand by the barn leaving the position to Cheyenne Vogt. In moto two Pellmann

quickly took the lead and held on while Vogt did her best to hold off a charging Steuck, but went down in the East end and Steuck quickly took control of second. Priscilla Gasch and Tammy Flemming were both charging after Steuck and by midway through lap three Flemming had made her move and passed Gasch for third. Pellmann went 1/1 to win the overall while Steuck (2/2) was second and Flemming (6/3) took a well earned third. Tristin Toney took the moto one holeshot in the 65cc class and was able to quickly distance himself from the pack. Jordan Martz took advantage of his second position around the holeshot corner and was able to hold off Max Steinhorst on lap one. By the first trip over the plateau Stephen Myra was firmly in third place and began hunting Martz down. By the midpoint of lap three Myra had Martz in his sites and began sticking a wheel in every chance he got. Despite the


pressure Martz rode smart and held Myra back to the checkers. In a repeat of the moto one holeshot it was again Toney first out onto the track. Toney put some breathing room between himself and the rest of the class. Martz again had his hands full as he protected second from a determined Myra. As the moto wound down Myra was on Martz’s rear wheel but just couldn’t find an opening to slip through. Twenty-four old guys showed up for the +50 class but once the gate dropped you couldn’t tell them from the kids on the track. Frank Dunn was first to the holeshot and rounded the corner with Tim Boblin alongside of him on the inside. At the plateau it was still Dunn out front but Boblin pushing to pass. Mike Zimmerman was third just ahead of Steve Abt. On lap two in the west end both Boblin and Zimmerman got past Dunn. In the barn section Zimmerman got by Boblin and then Dunn also

moved past Boblin to regain second. Going past the start straight Zimmerman was leading a fast moving train as both challengers were not giving him any chance to rest. On the third trip over the plateau Boblin was again in second. On the final lap Boblin was successful in getting around Zimmerman and held the lead to the checkers. Dunn again grabbed the holeshot in moto two but this time it was Abt trying to use the outside line to get past him. Zimmerman quickly got by Abt and by the time they came over the plateau with Abt holding off the challenges from Allen Brhely. On lap two Brhely made the pass on Abt. As they cleared the tunnel jump Zimmerman dove inside hard and made the pass for the lead and was able to quickly put in a small lead. Dennis Debuhr had been riding through the pack all moto and by the start of lap four he had worked his way into third place which he held to the finish. The hard fought overall went to Zimmerman (2/1), Dunn (3/2) took second,

Wolf grabbed the moto two holeshot but Clifford and James Burd were flanking his rear wheel. While Wolf and Clifford battled for the lead Burd settled into third.

Peters dominates White City, Illinois - May 16 By Bud Northrup Photos by Gordon Green

T

he Cahokia Creek Dirt Riders ran their first night hill climb of 2009, with the Peters family enjoying a great night. Matt Peters won all three classes he entered, while his son Levi, won both his in the youth action. The hill was extremely muddy, and only twenty riders saw the top of it. Matt’s first win came in the 250cc class where his first round ride of 4.404 seconds on his CR250 held up for the win. Danny Schumann was closest to him with a 4.652 second time on his YZ250, with Schuyler Kalaher claiming third. Riding his KTM380 in the 450cc class, Peters flew over the top of the 130 foot hill in 4.345 seconds on his first ride, and that also held up for the win, with Schumann claiming second again with a 4.426 second run. Gordon Green took third. The 600cc class was pretty much a replay for Peters and Schumann, as Peters took the

win on his KX500 in 4.493 seconds, while Schumann took yet another second. Sherman Lemere was third. Matt’s boy, Levi, enjoyed a double win evening with wins in the 50cc and 65cc youth classes. Levi muscled his squirming, screaming KTM50 72 feet up the slippery slope to win the 50cc class, with Chase Banning second after a 55 foot effort on his KTM. In the 65cc class, Levi had to come from behind in the second round for the win, climbing 78 feet to overtake Alissa Harnish, who had carded a 76 foot effort on her first ride. Schuyler Kalaher was also a double class winner. He was the first rider to top the hill, doing it on his YZ125 on both rides in 5.112 and 5.036 seconds, and was the only rider in the class to see the top. Nathan Fry and Carissa Harwell followed him with climbs of 108 and 92 feet respectively. Kalaher was also the only 200cc class rider to top the hill, again doing it twice on his KDX200, his best time a good 5.049 seconds. Jake Chandler

was second with a 94 foot effort on his Honda 150. In other youth action, Jeremiah Lyday took the 85Jr class win with a 98 foot effort on his Yamaha with D.J. Watson second, only 2 feet behind.

Rain plagues Stoney HS again

First row start, #11 Tyler Tischler with the holeshot. Columbus, Indiana - June 14 By David Dunnuck Photos by Cheryl Dunnuck

T

he first round of the Hoosier Hare Scramble Championship Series and the third round of the Stoney Lonesome MC Championship Series of 2009 were held at the Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club. The first two races of the Stoney Series were plagued with significant rain leading up to the events as well as rain on the race day. Round three proved to be no different with heavy rains starting at 4:30am on race day, and returning during the final lap of the big bike event. The PeeWee course remained unchanged from the previous event, providing a well established trail for the youngsters to follow. Langdon Feltner picked up where he left off at the last SLMC race with a victory. While Jacob Stark also won his Injector class, he quickly realized just how slick the conditions were with a first turn slide-out, allowing the entire class to cruise by him while he recovered. Stark not only recovered and won the class, but he finished in the third place PeeWee overall. The mini course was all new and laid out with tight turns, foliage covered ground and as much of the available flat land that exists, which is minimal. Clay Sullivan got the holeshot in the Super Mini class but was unable to maintain his lead. Larry Fruend and Matthew Hatchett swapped positions the entire race with Fruend edging Hatchett for the win. In the 85 class, Taylor Day raced through the trails with Keagen Lee and Luke Chilman applying pressure. Day appeared to 52

have little issue with the greasy conditions landing the victory. Michael Witkowski struggled at the start with a bike that would not start, but picked through the riders one by one eventually taking the lead on the second lap. Eric Douglass once again fell one lap shy of Witkowski, but held off the rest of the charging field for second place. John Henry Robinson had his Cobra running an impressive third place until falling back during the fourth lap. Dawson Dunnuck and Tate Guerrettaz battled to the end with Guerrettaz eventually landing the highly contested third place position. The big bike event started with eighty three riders on the starting line, down from previous D15 events which average over one hundred. Of those who started, nineteen eventually finished all four laps with nine riders failing to complete a lap. The course was significantly longer than previous events in an attempt to preserve the track conditions due to the weather. The lengthened course re-

quired very close proximity of trails resulting in a required increased awareness of course arrows which proved difficult for some. Tyler Tischler was the first rider through the home check followed by Jordan Johns and


Jeff Cregg. Cregg was experiencing bike issues requiring him to pull off for some repair activity. Tischler and Johns missed a key turn in an area were the trails were close together and Logan Chilman to became the new leader at the end of lap two. During the third lap, Cregg took over the lead with Chilman hanging on to the number two spot followed by Nathan Sullivan. At the end, Cregg still had the lead, followed 7:06 later by Chilman. Sullivan finished in third with Aaron Hughes coming in fourth place only 7:03 behind. Senior A rider, Robert Kirchner hammered it all day long, starting in the second row while finishing in the number five spot overall. In the end it was an awesome and challenging race with three different leaders battling to the end, but it was the unsurpassed speed of Cregg that claimed victory.

MC MotoPark Pro-Am Race Mt. Carroll, Illinois - June 21 By Bri Stiles

W

ith some rain in the forecast just days before the beginning of the weekend, it wasn’t enough to stop MC MotoPark from hosting their triple threat event where they hosted a Pro-Am points event, an NMA qualifier to qualify for Ponca City Nationals as well as a bonus points race for District 17 outdoor motocross. With racers from all over the country traveling to this event, practice kicked off with a newly groomed track ready to be torn up. Starting off the day with the first race being the Schoolboy class, Kody Kamm aboard his KTM stole the first moto holeshot followed by Thomas Garrett and Ian Malinowski. As the pack raced toward the top of the hill, Reese Miller moved into second place bumping Garrett into second. Kamm held on tight to his lead but Miller wasn’t about to give up as he charged hard. Kamm and Miller soared over the uphill step-up triple jump with only tire lengths between them. By the fourth lap Miller began to slip back as Kamm pulled a small lead. Miller bobbled and went down after the finish area. Kamm took the checkered flag followed by Garrett, and Miller in third. Just as intermission was coming to an end, mother nature set some showers upon the area as the Schoolboy class lined up for their second moto. Once again, Kamm took the holeshot followed by Garrett in second with the number five of Malinowski third. Kamm set the pace as Garrett charged behind at the same pace. Cameron Monona passed over Malinowski for third. The checkered flag came out as Kamm took another win as well as the overall followed by Garrett and Malinowski. With nine racers signed up in the +45 class, the gates dropped as the number ninetythree of Roy Nafzger took charge of the first moto holeshot followed by Don Beardstown in second and Jeff Patel. Nafzger never let up, leaving the battle up to the rest of the pack.

Zach Coons swept four motos for the overall in both Open and 250B.

CYCLE USA, July 2009

During the first lap, Patel made his way around Beardstown. The checkered flag came out as Nafzger took the first moto win. The +45 class took off the line as it continued to rain with Nafzger taking another holeshot followed by Michael Westbrook in second and Patel third. The track began to get slick as Westbrook removed his goggles. Just then Patel made the move into second passing Westbrook. Nafzger took another moto win followed by Patel and Westbrook. In the 85Sr class ten racers lined up to battle as Alexander Nagy aboard his Jeremy Thurow on the gas in 250B.

Kawasaki took the first moto holeshot followed by Andy Kost and Blake Halstead. With racers making passes left and right, the first lap was on its way as Nagy began to pull a gap. The battle was not so much for the lead in this race but for second place as Jacob Tonica moved through the pack into second place bumping Halstead back to third. The checkered flag came out as Nagy took the first moto win followed by Tonica and Halstead. Nagy pulled another holeshot followed by Tonica to start the second moto. The race

was intense as a steady gap between the top three stayed consistent throughout the entire race. With one lap to go Tonica charged to make up the time on Nagy. The checkered flag came out as Nagy took another moto win followed closely by Tonica. Halstead finished third.

Dutch gets in a great weekend Bloomingdale, Michigan - May 23-24 By Larry Witmer Photos by Kathie Brown

D

utch Sport Park enjoyed beautiful weather all weekend long which was a big treat in itself considering the amount of bad attitude Mother Nature has been giving the facility for the first two race weekends. Dutch had the bingo event Saturday night after the races with some great prizes for the winners. The hay ride also returned to the delight of the young and the young at heart. The ride takes you to the nature trails around the facility. Its a lot of fun. Both the bingo and hay ride were free of charge for the racers and families. In the Open B division Travis Davidson holeshot on his Honda and held off the advances of Chris Morrison and David Compton only to have Morrison pass Davidson on the last lap with a quicker trip through the sandbox area. Morrison took the win closely followed by Davidson and Compton. Second moto, this time Morrison got the shot and Davidson went hunting after him. Davidson passed Morrison on the second lap in the sand rockers, the same place that Morrison passed him for the first moto win. Coming for the white flag Morrison put the Honda in block pass formation, cutting off Davidson’s line, but Davidson kept his cool and cut under the Honda of Morrison to keep the win. Then bad luck struck Davidson with a half a lap to go, going down in one of the switchback areas, giving up his hard fought lead, and Morrison cruised in for the win. Davidson quickly remounted to salvage second, while Compton claimed third. In the 65cc 7-11 division Matt Carpenter

won out after two long moto battles with Tyler Michael and Ethan Gibson. Hunter Braun had machine problems in the opening moto to card a dnf, but came back in the second moto to give Carpenter a run for it to the checkers, carding the runner up slot. I caught up with Matt after the event and He said, “I had fun out there, the track was good, fast and smooth. I love the jumps here at Dutch. I want to thank my Mom and Dad, EVS / MSR and oh yea, My grandpa and Grandma.” Jarred Williams was a winner in the 9-13 85cc division on his trick Suzuki, and returning to victory lane claiming the win in Brayton Gross of Granger, IN leading Chase Hanson and the Supermini diviShane Whitehead in 65cc Beginner. sion. Jarred did this by pulling the holeshot and leaving the competition in his dust. Good job, Jarred!

Sunset welcomes Youth Regional Walnut, Illinois - June 12/13 By Missi Thede

W

ith Saturday’s overcast skies, the threat of more rain and cool conditions, it could only get better from there as the Loretta Lynn’s North Central Youth Regional weekend began without a hitch. This is a huge even, that has very significant meaning to many of the riders that had worked their way through qualifiers to get to this final step in the national qualifying process. From here, some of these young riders will potentially go on setting the stage for future fame and glory in the sport. There may be a few casual riders at an event like this, but most are working hard, and very serious about performing their best. A lot of pressure for the younger side of our sport. Hosting an event like this is a big undertaking, and Sunset Ridge was surely up to the task. Both the facility, and the staff were well prepared, doing an excellent job. All the classes at a Regional are simply fast. That said, one of the crowd’s favorite is often the Schoolboy classes. Here, you will definitely catch a few of tomorrow’s stars as they climb the ladder to the bigger bikes. Schoolboy 1 B/C ran two divisions in the first moto with 29 gated in division one, and 28 in the other. This first moto was used to narrow the field for the final forty rider gate in moto two and three. In the start of the first division Miles Schellenberger picked up the holeshot with Indiana’s Cameron Reas and Connor Olson in pursuit. During the first lap Texas riders made themselves known as Bradley Frace worked his way to second in the pack right before the finish line jump while McCoy Oldenburg followed suit pushing Reas to fourth. Not happy with second, Frace bulleted into the lead while Oldenburg put the pressure on Schellenberger and made his way to second during the third lap. With the Texans finishing out the top two and Schellenberger third, it was time

for division two to breakout. Division two had a tough start with Terre Haute, Indiana’s Cody McMurry losing it on the start. As he was getting back on, four others piled up, Michael Norris, Dakota Blakeney, Sawyer Brownlee and Charlie Dodson. They all picked up, got back on and did their best to catch the rest of the pack. Luke Renzland picked up the holeshot with Joey Hale second. Jake Riggle pursued aggressively and passed Hale in the first lap while Maryland’s Mike Anderson pulled into third. Oklahoma’s Justin Bogle blew through the pack, and took over the lead pushing Renzland to second. Last lap had Bogle and Renzland with solid finishes while Daniel Herrlein pushed Anderson out of the third place finish. The second moto rolled around with the anticipation of the top finishers from both divisions combined for a forty rider gate drop. Right away in the first lap the top five riders established themselves again, and then dominated the moto. Frace, Bogle, Renzland, Oldenburg and Anderson finished in their positions solidly. Sunday’s picture perfect day had everyone’s adrenalin going and anticipating the action from the Schoolboy class again as they took to the track for their third moto. Off the start was Renzland with the holeshot and Schellenberger and Goodson in pursuit. Over the camel hump Goodson made his way into the lead. Goodson had Renzland’s pressure behind him as Bogle also pushed into third with Frace also entering the mix. Renzland attacked and took over the lead with Bogle keeping the pressure on. During the last lap

Iowa’s Travis Prier (#50) works to pass Kody Stricklin in 65 (10-11) stock.

Bogle took over the lead and finished with a heel clicker over the finish line while Renzland claimed second ahead of, Bogle and Oldenburg. Bogle’s 1-2-1 motos took the overall giving the Oklahoma native the momentum he wanted going into the national. Frace’s 11-3 was good for second overall ahead of New Jersey’s Renzland. Kody Kamm (Kenosha, WI) had the best finish in the class for an area rider, going 12-11-6 for ninth overall... a few spots out of a guaranteed position on the line in Tennessee. The Women (14 plus) class was a little more of a regionally dominated class. Missouri’s Jenica Paulsen dominated both days with the holeshots and track leads that eventually led her to a perfect 1-1-1 score. In Saturday’s first moto Paulsen, Mendota, Illinois’ Shelby Miller and Indiana’s Meghan Jordan

among that same group and capable of winning the top prize. Minnesota’s Jerry Robin went 11-1 to dominate the 65cc Modified 7-11 class. Not to be outdone by a fellow MN rider, Jeremy Martin smoked two classes, having perfect tallies in both Super Mini 1 and Super Mini 2. Kody Kamm finished second overall in Super Mini 1 with 2-3-3 scores to top the list of WI riders. Henry Miller of Rochester, MN went 1-2-2 in 85cc 9-11 Stock for the overall. Landon Rapp won all three of his 51 AMA Stock class motos to take the overall for Illinois. Clayton Adams went 1-1-2 for his overall in 51 Stock Shaft Drive to keep another overall trophy from crossing the border out of Illinois at the end of the exciting weekend. Good luck at the National everyone!

pulled out in the front at the start. By the time they made their first trip over the camel hump Miller had dropped back while and Christina Reed was in third. The second lap had more position exchanges as Ohio’s Rebecca Sheets pulled into second, and Minnesota’s Kayla Solheid climber her way into a solid third. Second moto had Paulsen dominating with Jordan and Sheets running 2-3 while Miller held fourth during the opening lap. Sheets took over second

while Solheid was once again working up to take over third near the end of the moto. Sunday had Solheid step it up and finish second to finish second overall. Iowa’s Mackenzie Mcadoo also had a better moto finishing third after very good fifth place finishes in the first two motos. Jordan went 44-4 to earn a gate at the national as well. While this event had fast riders from all over the country in many of the top spots, a few regional riders showed they are

Not the way to start your weekend. Good thing, everyone got up and rode away.

Anderson sharp at Hurricane Mazeppa, Minnesota - May 31 By Mike Nelson

One guy who can’t be overlooked for the day was Jared Anderson out of Stillwater, Minnesota. He was the only rider to pull down a triple for the day, winning the 250A, +25A, and +30A classes. Anderson was unstoppable winning all six of his motos for the kind of day that riders dream of. Riley Rainer, Mateo Johnson, and Cole Harrington each had a great day as well, doubling up wins in the youth classes.

W

hen I pulled into Hurricane Hills MX Park just outside of Mazeppa on this warm and sunny Sunday morning I was pretty sure I was there to see a motocross, but as I started to look around I began to question what type of event I had ended up at. I saw plenty of familiar faces, but they weren’t faces I normally see at Hurricane Hills. These were guys I have watched win District Championships on the hill climb circuit over the past few years. All together, ten prominent hill climbers, most of which are current or past District and National champions, had shown up with their families and supporters camping out in the front row of pits and accounting for sixteen of the registered sign ups for the days motos. Jay Sallstrom performed the best of the climbers, taking home the big cup from two classes. Sallstrom had his hands full as he and Derek Maxson battled each other all day. Both had entered the same classes and ran in close competition virtually every time they got on the track. Sallstrom made late lap passes in both motos of the 14-24B class to get the win. The situation was the same in the Open B class with Sallstrom laying back on his starts and working through the other riders to win both motos. Maxson was able to get a little revenge in the 250B class with Sallstrom unable to catch him in the afternoon moto.

enough to keep Jethro at bay. Exiting turn four on lap twelve, Mees started his charge, diving low under Schnabel to take over third place as they entered turn one. One lap later, Mees repeated the move out of four to take second away from Jethro Halbert as they entered turn one, but Mees could not hold the position as Halbert knifed back underneath as they exited turn two. Mees would not be denied and dove back under Halbert and grabbed second for good. Two laps later, Mees showed Sammy Halbert a wheel exiting turn four but couldn’t make it stick. As they exited turn four to take Mike Vrana's white flag, Mees timed his move to perfection to steal the lead entering turn one. Halbert would not go quietly, however, and the two riders bumped at the apex of turn three. The contact pushed Mees wide, while Halbert dove low as they raced to the checkers.

Steep Competition at Millville Regional

Nick Jackson pulls a massive holeshot in the 450 class

Millville, Minnesota - May 30 & 31 By Rolfe Otterness

R

iders attempting to qualify for the AMA National Amateur Championship made the trek to Spring Creek Park for the North Central Regional, the next step up from the eight area qualifiers held in various locations. The popularity of the Millville track helped draw riders to the North Central region from throughout the country as we had entrants from as far away as California, New Mexico, Florida, New Jersey, Texas and Colorado. Some of the more well known aspirants to fame were Dean Wilson, Jason Anderson, Terran Odell and Eli Tomac. In perhaps a preview of what is to come in Tennessee, Anderson, Odell and Wilson dueled in several classes. Spring Creek regulars like Randy Dibartolo (now in Texas), Brandon Haas and Gavin Faith did a credible job as they pushed hard to keep the pressure on these out of staters. There was even an incident of apparent sabotage as Dean Wilson’s bike would not start and water was found in the fuel tank, causing Wilson to miss the start of one moto. Obviously high stakes are on the line in the amateur motocross world. One of larger classes, the 250B Mods had to be split into two divisions for moto one. Eli Tomac came off the starting gate strongly, holeshotting in his first moto and pulling out a twenty second lead over the battling duo of Tanner Krahenbuhl and Justin

CYCLE USA, July 2009

Summers by the checkered. Luke Renzald ran out front all the way in division 2 to take the win over Killy Rusk and Logan Marzahn. Moto two had the top riders consolidated into one 40-rider field and Summers launched his KX into the lead. Krahenbuhl demoted him to second on the first lap with Beau Hudson, Renzald and Austin Pollitelli in hot pursuit. Tomac took a few laps but eventually worked his way up from around seventh on lap one to put the pressure on leader Krahenbuhl as they received the white flag. Krehenbuhl couldn’t hold off the attack, and Tomac went by for the win. Summers held on for third over Killy Rusk and Hudson. The third moto was solidly Tomac’s as he led all the way. Behind him the top five order settled in by the end of lap two, with Summers leading Rusk, Hudson and Krahenbuhl to the flag. Tomac certainly looked strong in this class but Krahenbuhl and Rusk also had some good results in other classes and will be riders to watch for in the intermediate classes at Loretta’s. Checking out the +40 class, the first moto saw Don Bisceglin of Texas march into the lead. Jack Lambert, Alan Regier and Jamie Miller dueled for second in the early part of the moto, but Lambert pulled a bit on the others to secure the position later in the race. Miller topped Regier and Frank Weiss as they went 3-4-5. Moto two was another clarification of

the dominance of Bisceglin as he ran off for an easy win. Miller had a better time of it and ran a secure second place over Regier and Lambert. Top local boy was David Spizman in this moto as he nailed down fifth. Bisceglin shot out front and started to check out in the third moto while Miller attempted to nail down second. He made it most of the first lap but dumped his bike at the top of collarbone hill. Regier and Lambert then disputed second place for the rest of the moto. Bisceglin ran off for a good fifteen second lead over his rivals and at the flag took a big win. Regier held off Lambert by about the length of a bike at the end. Weiss and Spizman trailed them by a bit to fill the top five. The 250A and 250A/ Prosport classes featured many battles between Wilson, Anderson and Odell, showing them all to be very close in ultimate speed around the rough, rutted Spring Creek track. Anderson and Wilson dueled in the first 250A moto and Wilson eventually took the lead late in the moto to take a win. Anderson holeshotted in moto two over Gavin Faith with Wilson a bit back in the pack. Wilson moved up to pressure Faith by lap three and Faith dropped his bike in the corner after the back triple and fell back. Wilson couldn’t catch Anderson and had to settle for second. In moto three Anderson took over the lead from fast starter Brandon Haas early in lap one. Wilson closed in and soon was in second but Ander-

son held fast to the lead despite everything Wilson could throw at him. In 250 Prosport, Wilson DNF’ed the first moto with the aforementioned bike problems. Anderson went in for the win with Odell second and Dibartolo third. Wilson went on to win the next moto with Anderson and Odell rolling in for second and third - no real need to beat Wilson as his first moto DNF dropped him from contention for the overall. In moto three Odell jumped to the early lead with Anderson and Wilson in tow. Odell and Anderson swapped positions on lap two while Wilson kept in close touch. The three freighttrained around for the next few laps in a very close battle. On the last lap Wilson passed both Odell and Anderson in quick succession after they blasted down the big hill and around the next few turns. Anderson tried to retaliate but screwed up and dropped back to third. Nick Jackson led the pack through turn one as the 450 A/ ProSport class erupted in moto one. Randy Dibartolo quickly took over with Wilson, Odell and Devin Reed behind. Wilson stayed on Dibartolo’s tail for the first

Odell made a charge to lead the pack through the first part of lap one as the third moto got under way. He stalled his bike at the bottom of Collarbone Hill and Wilson inherited the lead, Odell dropping back to seventh. Wilson and Dibartolo ran 1-2 most of the moto while Odell picked his way through the intervening riders. By the white flag he was in third and closing on Dibartolo but couldn’t make the pass stick. Wilson ended up with the moto win giving him the perfect score for the overall. Dibartolo, Odell, Faith and Reed filled the top five.

three laps but finally made his move on the big camelback jump. He started to ease away and built about a four second cushion by the checkered. Odell closed on Dibartolo but couldn’t make a pass stick on the last two laps and settled for third. Reed and Jackson followed a bit back. Wilson fired off a better start in moto two with Faith second. Odell dropped Faith one position when he moved by the end of lap one. From there on the order of the top five held for the rest of the race with Wilson pulling out another win. Odell led Faith, Dibartolo and Reed at the conclusion of the moto.
