Free Racing Opportunity for youth riders. In an attempt to invest in the future of youth off-road racing, the Norsemen club has decided to make their July 20th "Woodland" youth only event, "Free class Entry" for all the youth races. The Woodland event features a layout specifically designed for mini riders fun, with a harescramble scoring format, you won't be disappointed. For more info see www.norsemenmc.org From the Back of the Pack By Mike Quinn, D23 Chairman Hard to believe we are already into July. This year is flying by even with all the bad weather. Our events are finally taking off with far fewer cancellations. Participation numbers are still down but slowly getting better. Our local off-road races have had very good participation to date and the Theilman trailride was another major rider draw in mid May. The Hillclimb and Flat Track events are doing well. At this point we are not looking at any major legislative issues which is nice. Our government relations officers Tom and Karen Umphress made a trip to Washington DC in early June to be honored with another award. These two are without a doubt the hardest working, most effective pair in government relations in the area. We are lucky to have them as part of D23. The Pro Motocross series will be in Millville on July 17th, so even if you are not a MX racer you owe it to yourself to come see these guys race. We will also have a host of racers competing at Lorretta Lynn’s Ranch in the National Amateur Championship MX races in August. One of the most notable is Jerry Robin. He qualified on a 1985 Honda CR250. That’s right, a 28 year old bike will be making the trek to the Ranch and the racer is 16. If you haven’t seen the videos on this kid, check them out on facebook. It was fun watching him beat the big bucks boys. That is about it for this month, I hope you all get out and race and ride, and don’t forget to enjoy an occasional road trip if you have access to a road bike. See you on the MN tracks and trails. Mike

Gregory Moss of Loves Park IL passed away June 19th, at 67 years of age. Over the years I've had the unfortunate experience of announcing friends being sick or worse yet their passing. But nothing compares to having to announce my father’s passing. Last week he had a heart attack and had three stints put in. He came home on Father’s Day and seemed to be doing well. In fact last night Alex, Jen and I were over and he was laughing and joking and all seemed good. But during the night it appears he suffered another heart attack and passed in his sleep. There's so much I could post about the old man, but many of you that knew him knew how much he loved the being at the races, helping anyone and everyone, and felt that the racing community was truly family. I am truly glad that Alex and I had the opportunity to ride one last enduro with him, and I’m sure he’s up there trying to figure out how to help someone fix a bike, find a gas stop, or a great spot to take pictures at. Godspeed old man, you’ll be missed. Ryan Moss

25 Years Celebrated in Hixton

Phil Smage provided some of the night’s entertainment with his excellent trials riding skills.

Hixton, Wisconsin - June 2 By Doug Forstner

T

he now well known CMJ Raceway started hosting races in 1989, after the dreams of brothers Chris and Matt Halverson became a reality. This year marks the track’s 25th anniversary, and CMJ celebrated the anniversary during the June District 16 MX race. “My brother Matt and I were both racing at other locations and felt we could put on an good event of our own,”

Mike Bottolfson topped +25A and Open A, sweeping all four motos.

shared Chris. “We were both living in the area at the time, but never had intentions of doing this for 25 years.” With the help of local businesses and a lot of friends, the brothers hosted their first race in June of 1989, and have been at it ever since. Over the years hare scrambles and hillclimbs have become regular events at the beautiful facility as well. “In the early years, we were attracting just over 100 entries per race,” recalled Chris. “By the mid-90s, that number had grown to almost 400. We saw a big decline with the recession of ’08, but as of last year, the numbers are finally getting better again.” So to celebrate the 25th anniversary, the CMJ crew hosted free food and beverage on Saturday night with a DJ. Trials specialist and long time racer of Hixton motocross races Phil Smage from Smagical Adventures also came out to put on a show for the racers and fans. The evening was topped off with bench racing around the campfires, followed by a sweet fireworks show sponsored by the fine folks at the Lake Wisconsin ATV Association. Of course the weather treated the area to over four inches of rain the week prior to the race. Good news was the racers awoke to cool, but nice conditions on Sunday morning. However, with all the rain, there was plenty of mud for practice and the early motos. Nothing terrible.... but tricky. The crew did a great job to make racing conditions above par, and as the day wore on the track really shaped up... lap times and conditions improved with every passing moto. The best race tracks are often

those that start out a little muddy... Hixton is perfect proof of this, don’t let mid-week rain scare you away. The 125Jr class was the first bike class out on the track. As the racers tore down the start straight it was Mason Persha from Mayville taking the holeshot followed by Jakob Passineau, Trevor Deedon and Brady Bill. Persha was able to run up front, setting a pretty good pace. Behind him, battles ensued through the pack. By mid-race the action heated up with Passineau and Logan Telfer as well. At moto’s end, it was Persha taking the win ahead of Bill, and Telfer who managed to snag third ahead of Passineau and Deedon. In moto two, again it was Persha who got to the front quickly. He was on a mission and it showed as he didn’t seem to have any problems navigating the tricky and rutted up course. Deedon was also putting in a solid ride and wanted to improve on his first moto. The racing action was intense early with Deedon, Bill, Passineau, Telfer and Austin Nelson behind the leader. But as the moto wore on, it was Deedon who came away with a solid second place finish, just ahead of Bill. Bill’s 2-3 moto scores were good enough for second overall ahead of Deedon (5-2). Passineau went 4-4 ahead of Telfer’s 3-5. From the youngster’s to the old savvy vets, everyone took their turn trying to master the technical track. In moto one of the +50 class it was Mike Barta with the holeshot, but he was soon passed by Gary Behrens. Barta kept up with Behrens, and had pressure from Wayne Welzien through the first lap. On lap two, Barta lost his rhythm in the famous uphill whoop section allowing a few riders to get


by. Welzien got into second, but he didn’t have anything for Behrens who was running smooth up front. At the checkers it was Behrens, Welzien, and Barta who managed to get back into third ahead of Wayne Slagle and Tim Riemer. Moto two was a good race to see who would come out in front off the start, and it was too close to call until they went up the whooped hill, where Behrens took over. Welzien and Ed Smulders were trying their best to keep pace. Barta was making a charge through the moto, and at the checkers got by Smulders for third behind Welzien. Slagle rounded out the top five, giving him fourth on the day. I was out on the track for one of my son’s motos and found that the drop downhill section before the highway had become a pretty rutted. I with a couple other dads and track workers were on hand helping get some of the younger riders through the tough rutty section. Keep in mind; 65cc bikes have a 14” front wheel and a 12” back. These kids were having a heck of time getting down this section, as some of the deepest ruts were 20” deep. Needless to say, all the racers did a great job getting

through. It wasn’t the usual pin it to win track. Line selection was key to a good mistake free race. Open A had a decent turnout and it was Mike Bottolfson who made the trek down from Hudson, WI who put on a clinic. Bottolfson turned in some of the fastest lap times on the day according to my stop watch. In moto one Jason Erdman was doing a good job trying to keep Bottolfson in sight throughout the moto because Dylan Narel and Colton Karl were giving chase as well. David Smage was also in the mix for top five honors. In moto two, Bottolfson again got out front and stayed there. This time it was Karl who had a solid ride and put his Honda in the number two position for the moto, also giving him second overall ahead of Narel’s 3-4 scores. Erdman went 2-5 for fourth, just beating out Smage who turned it up in moto two with his third place finish. One of the other classes that caught my attention was Sportsmen B/C. It was Tyler Skrodas going 1-1 on the day. Taylor Strauss and Troy Neault were mixing it up both motos behind Skrodas. Colton Bentz and Shawn Gilman were also trying to get in the mix. Neault was

At the end of the day, talking to Chris Halverson, the only word that came to mind was unique. “After 25 years of racing, we’ve been rained out, dealt with tornados and high winds, and had the driest of dry but with the early rain in the week and nice race day conditions it just made for one unique track. It wasn’t the best, but it was pretty good... a racer’s track for sure.” As I headed out and down the hillside to I-94 to go home, I thought to myself what will the next anniversary race bring? Surely a lot more great memories from each and every season!

Fortner, Peters Light-Up Neoga Neoga, Illinois - May 25 By Kevin Northrup Photos by Martha Peters

evi Peters had a perfect night, and Andy Fortner was a double class winner with the overall Fast Time at the Central Illinois Motorcycle Club on May 25th. Young Peters got his first win the 85Sr class with a 3.485 second time on his second round ride on his KX85. That time was also good for the Youth Fast Time award, edging Derick Bell who posted a 3.515 second time in the Jr class. Dalton Johnson and Jonathon Brian claimed second and third. Riding in the 125cc class, Peters crashed at 125 feet on his first ride, and Jacob Bell took the class lead with a 4.605 second time. Levi recovered nicely, flying his KTM over the top in 4.070 seconds to claim the win on his second ride. Clayton Hirsch was third.

Levi jumped out in front in the 200cc class with an excellent 4.259 second first round time which held up for that class win, with Morgan Wheelwright second. That gave Levi a perfect night with three class wins and the fast time. Fortner’s excellent night started in the always fast 600cc class where his first round 3.453 second ride held up for the win. Wade Schultz was his closest challenger in the class with a 3.712 second time, while Dan Groth claimed third. Fortner brought his CR500 to the +40 class and found himself in third place at the end of the first round, behind Eric Wheelwright and Steve Kuhl. In the second round action, Matt Peters, after crashing on his first ride, posted a fine 3.445 second time to take the lead, and a new fast time. But Fortner was up to the challenge, flying his Honda over in a an even faster 3.359 seconds to claim both the class win and fast time of the night. Wheelwright bettered his first ride also, but had to settle for third. Derick Bell and Steve Shafer also enjoyed double wins. Bell’s first win came in the 65cc class with a good 3.767 second first round ride. ‘Little’ Fast Andy Fortner was his closest competitor with a 3.915 second time with Mitch Moran third. Bell’s first round ride would have been good enough to win the 85Jr class, but he rode even faster on his second run, posting a 3.515 second time. Fortner was second again with Brodie Bennett third.

Clayton Hirsch finished third in the 125cc class, here with the Fast Time trophy won at the April event.

Mud, Mud, Everywhere in Carver Carver, Minnesota - June 9 By Keith McKenna

W

ith the forecast calling for an 80% chance of rain the night before the hare scrambles race to be held at the beautiful 200 acre River Bluffs Horse Ranch in Carver MN, the volunteers and Motokazie race staff were going to have their hands full. With steady rain falling as racers and spectators pulled onto the grounds, the first daunting task was to get vehicles into the parking area without getting stuck in the mud. As I was unsuccessful at this first task and needed a push to get moving again, I could see what we all were up for on this race day. Mud, mud, everywhere. The first race of the day was the Premier/ Juniors class. As the riders left the line and charged to the first turn, a 180 degree right hander on the grass track, it was apparent that kids still love to play in the mud. #4 Colin Maynard from Hopkins MN, on a KTM took the victory in the Premier class, then later stood atop the podium in the Junior class, all in slick muddy conditions. Up next were the little gals and guys in the Macro/ Micro and PeeWee classes. With plenty of sweep riders out on the track to make sure no one got swallowed up by the mud, all of the little lions raced their hearts out. The first place finisher in the Pee Wee class was KTM mounted Brady Kittock from nearby Farmington MN. Girls 9-15 #71 Miranda Tweeton from Big Lake came home first in her class. In the Macro class Charlie Siebenaler emerged as the winner, and in the Micro class, victory was indeed sweet for Lileeana O’Neil. As the C class left the line and charged into the first turn under rainy skies, a flurry of bikes and bodies slid into the turn and each other, clawing for the elusive traction needed to propel them to the lead. Series point leader

Luke Wilder through the river bottoms, racing to a seventh place in the AA class.

in the Women’s class #911 Mary Schreiner must have eaten her wheaties for breakfast which allowed her to take a hard fought win in a battle with Kristi Grote in the hotly contested class. Exiting the first turn in the 200C class was rider #1 Darrin Froemming from Garfield MN on a Yamaha, holding the extremely tight line to emerge in first place in Victory Circle. Midway through the race with rain falling at a pretty fair rate, conditions everywhere were becoming increasingly difficult as any low spots (of which there were many) were filling with water, and concealing boulders or ruts that the riders would have to contend with. The afternoon race with the AA, A and B class racers started out in pretty abysmal conditions, but the rain stopped just beRandy Imholte racing in Open-A. fore the start and midway through the event the sun came out. In the AA race, #11 Dylan Debel emerged from the pack on his CheckPoint Off-Road prepared Honda CRF-450 in the lead after the group arrived at the first turn like they were tied together. Considering the early race conditions, the pace of the leaders was truly im-

pressive with Debel holding the front and the Husqvarna of Nate Ferderer in tow. The two circulated for two thirds of the race with Debel leading Ferderer by around ten seconds on the seven mile loop. With about thirty minutes left in the race, Ferderer found a way past on his Husqvarna and held on for the win. Taking the number three spot was Suzuki mounted Robert Lane followed by Dennis Lau, Mitch Craven, Jake Hinkemeyer, Luke Wilder and finally Daniel Robin. Other winners in the A class were Ryan Sand on his Yamaha YZ in 200A, Kevin Plzak from Loretto MN on a KTM in 250A, Robert Newport in Open A, Vet-A rider Carey Daku, Senior A Pat Adrian all the way down from Roseau, MN on a KTM, with KTM mounted Dave Schreiner taking top +50 honors after a race long battle against Kraig Anderson. At the end of the day everyone was happy with just being able to ride, no matter what the conditions, and the bikes were about 50 lbs, heavier than when they arrived due to mud. Attendance was high, with racers competing from Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Canada. Big, Big Thanks to the crew at Motokazie for all of their hard work leading up to and including the day of the event. They were busy all day, hustling to make sure everyone got what they needed to have a great experience.

Fast Paced Action in Mendota Mendota, Illinois - June 22 By Josh Rud www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

S

aturday June 22nd kicked off round four of Megacross with the Fun Days going on at the fairgrounds, and free grandstands, the race was the place to be! Mother Nature didn’t agree, but the crew at Megacross got the track unflooded and scraped down to what turned out to be a great track! The weather in the Midwest has been a complete 360 from last year, going from 100 degree temps and a drought to rain every week. Saturday was no different with inches of rain falling the night before, flooding the track. Come race time after much work the track was ready for action. So many great races went on tonight, kicking things off was 14-24 with Colton Beard taking the holeshot followed by Nate Hornung and Skyler Harkless. Coming through the chaos of the second turn Travis Ward railed the outside to take third from Harkless, heading into the whoops. Down the long straight Jordan Mackiewicz was gaining

ground after getting choked off in the start, passing Ward for third. Keeping the momentum going he went high on the bowl turn to pass Hornung, then over the finish line flew past Beard for the lead, all in the opening lap! Coming around on the second lap Mackiewicz was starting to pull away as Ward was still fighting, and got around Hornung to take back third place. After a lot of back and forth, the checkers came out giving Mackiewicz the win followed by Beard and Ward. Open B was next with a stacked gate of fourteen riders charging into the first turn. Damon Thomas nudged his way to the front for the lead with Ricki Williams and Nate Hornung right behind him. Coming around the second turn Jesse Keith came into the whoops with a head of steam to take over third place. Over the table tops, Thomas was on a mission to run away from the pack as the battle waged behind him. Williams was holding off Keith as Hornung got a grip on the inside rut and got back around Keith to reclaim third. Hornung was on Williams the rest of the race, certainly putting him to work, but was unable to get by. Thomas held out front the entire race, tak-

ing the win with Williams and Hornung rounding out the top three. 125cc was out on the gates next with Robbie Hyson snagging the holeshot followed by Ben Ibianskas and Travis Ward. Ward snuck in on the inside of Ibianskas to take over second with his sights now set on the leader. Matt Mellott on his Yamaha got around the outside of Ibianskas to take over third while the battle continued up front. Charging down the straight in a drag race, Ward went high through the bowl turn to take over the lead, but Hyson wasn’t going to give up. The two started pulling away from the pack, running smooth lines as Hyson got sideby-side only to get left back in second through the next turn. Coming over the finish line Ward took the win with Hyson and Mellott rounding out the top three in yet another exciting race. 65Sr was another great race tonight, with the lead up for grabs the entire time. The gates fell and Conner Burger took ownership of the lead followed closely by Dakota Washburn and Tommy Fortune. The pack was bunched up coming through the second turn as Washburn emerged from the chaos in the lead with Burger chasing him and Garrett Ward moving up to third. Drag racing down the straight, Burger took back the lead and Fortune returned to third. Over the finish line area, into the first table top Ward kept the momentum going, re-taking third back as Burger got passed back by Washburn moving him up to the lead once again. Going around the hairpin before the finish line Washburn washed


out letting Burger, Fortune and Ward by. On the third lap Fortune was charging hard, looking for the lead and went down before the table tops, advancing Ward into second, and Washburn back to third. Fortune got back on the gas and was able to make it into the group of leaders and on the last lap, passing Washburn on the inside of the bowl turn. Coming across the finish line after the hectic battle, Burger took the win with Ward and Fortune right behind him. Never seen a 65cc moto with this much passing and action, it was simply, impressive. Open A came off the line with twelve riders going full blast into the first turn. Maxx Malatia edged out an early lead with Kyle White and Cory Deadmond in the chase. Coming over the first jump into the whoops, Tom Hofmaster was on the throttle hard moving up to third, bar to bar with White. Hofmaster slid out before the tables letting Nate Mcleese by as Malatia got his Honda flying to build a decent lead. Hofmaster got up in the back of the pack, and started

charging. He made it to fourth before time ran out. Malatia crossed the checkers for the win with his teammate White close behind. Mcleese held on for third. 85Sr was another great race tonight keeping, the action going and the crowd entertained. Anthony Wallace took the holeshot with Shane Reilly and Chase Sexton right in the mix. Coming around the second turn Wallace was holding onto the lead as Sexton launched into the whoops section to take over second, with Joshua Taylor following closely for third. Moving into the table top section Sexton turned on the heat, passing Wallace and flying down the straight. Going into the S curve before the finish Sexton got loose and washed out, stalling his Yamaha and letting Wallace and Taylor slip by. Sexton got the bike started and went to work, charging hard like nothing ever happened. Over the finish line area into the second lap Sexton went by Taylor to hunt down Wallace who had put a good amount of distance in. As the laps ticked by Sexton kept

Karolevitz triples in Cambridge

#42 Jeremiah Lindberg won the Open B main event.

Cambridge, Minnesota - June 6 By Tim McBride

T

he North Central Dirt Track Association held their second AMA District 23 dirt track event of the season at the Norseman MC club grounds in Cambridge MN, home of their infamous Tourist Trophy race track. Mini class sensation Brady Karolevitz recorded his first hat-trick today. The diminutive hometown favorite Karolevitz, topped the 65cc Mini class via a flag to flag win, Lucas Logue and the Larson’s Cycle entry of Ty Valland filled the podium. Amelia Hauer, Nate Minster and Ginger Downey rounded out the field. Karolevitz went on to win the 50Sr class ahead of Emik Hauer and Ross Monson. He then recorded the three-peat by topping the 50Jr class as well. After recently returning from a Hawaii honeymoon with his lovely better half Brenna, AMA GNC #68 Josh Koch appeared tanned, rested and obviously ready, by entering and winning the 450 Pro and Open Pro classes. The 450 main event saw Koch out front from start to finish with the M3 Racing entry of Pro Single contender Mac McGrew finishing in second place by race’s end. Wisconsin Pro Singles racer Kevin Walter was running in third until he crashed in turn one of the second lap forcing Cole Fealy off the track, and bounding for control of his bike along “Rhubarb Ridge.” Cale Langland avoided the fallen Walter and saved third place. The Open Pro main saw Koch in front 16

again, this time he was chased closely by Walter for the first couple laps. McGrew was on the move however as he performed a dicey first turn inside pass on Walter, and the after effects saw Walter bounding off the track. The melee allowed Langland yet another top three finish on the day. Walter recovered in time to finish fourth. Fealy, Wade Wessels, Rich Delak, Zach Zemanovic and Elliot Darsow rounded out the field.

Hawkeye Downs D22 MX Cedar Rapids, Iowa - June 1 By Tracy Petrak Photos courtesy of Bill Stevens

T

he first District 22 race at Hawkeye Downs for 2013 was on June 1st, setting the stage for some awesome racing. It was also the third event in the Cedar Valley Trail Rider’s summer series. The track was revamped and with a lot of hard work and effort of the volunteers, it proved to be somewhat of a challenge, and a great change to conquer. Rain had hampered many festivities in the area through the week, so when the weather cooperated with us, it just seemed like it was meant to be. One of the busy classes tonight was the 85Jr’s. With eleven racers at the start, this is the group where you need to work hard to claim your spot. Throughout the first moto we had three strong riders take off and stay ahead of the pack. Maliq Mccaleb took the lead with Tristan Bell and Linkin Sarauer right behind him. Just inside the third lap, Bell found his opportunity, and took the pass to take the lead and eventual win with Mccaleb and Sarauer on his

back tire. In the second moto the battle heated up. Mccaleb took off from the gate and kept that lead this time. Sarauer earned her keep by running steady behind him with Isaac Moyle worked up to the top three, and dropping Bell out of contention. It was great watching the contest of these riders and seeing the will to win. Mccaleb took the overall victory as Linkin Sarauer worked hard, and earned her way to second place. Tristan Bell proudly claimed third overall (1-4). The yellow lights flash and the green light shines now for the 250A class. A total of ten high charged contenders were ancy and ready to race. Right from the start in the first moto Jordan Harnish grabbed the lead and kept it throughout each lap. Bobby Hanson kept him in check by making sure he knew not to get too comfortable. Brennan Meyers and Brett Mclaud were there to advance at any chance that was made available. They kept this order throughout the moto. The second moto of the night was now under the lights, and seemed to make a change in the lineup. Out of the gate on this one three racers went down.

Meyers took the lead this time and wasn’t looking back. Bobby Hanson was on his rear fender and this time Chase Conis wanted a piece of the pie. He battled with Brett Mclaud for that third place position and took it. Brennan Meyers took first for the night with Bobby Hanson securing his second place spot and

Jordan Harnish holding in the top group with third place. It was a great night for the fans and riders alike. The next race for the Cedar Valley Trail Riders will take place on Saturday, June 15th. Don’t take peoples word for how good they think the track is, come on out and race it for yourselves.

his past weekend Saturday kicked off the arsenal series round three. This weekend was also run in memorial of a rider local to the track, Greg Pollak. Greg’s family and friends were in attendance as well as his bike which led a memorial lap around the track in remembrance. The racing was great tonight with impending rain sure to come at any time, everything sailed by to try to get racing finished up before the rain made its presence known. It did actually start to rain at the end of the night during the last race The race itself almost didn’t happen due to all the rain during the week. This of course made for some great riding condition with the track in perfect shape. The night kicked off with 250C up for battle. Twenty riders packed into the gates for a very close start with Brandon Larson getting out front followed by Eddie Lengwin and Alec Lea-

Rounding into the turn before the finish line, Leasure grabbed the inside rut hard and made the pass up into second while Bank was fighting back hard. The three stayed extremely close, pulling away from the pack. Coming up to the white flag they were three wide through the turn before Leasure spun out, letting Bank by for second. Larson was able to power through the table and rhythm section to cross the finish for the win with Bank and Leasure rounding out the top three. 85 Open was out for action next with Christopher Gallagher taking the early lead, as Nolan Dickinson and Scotty Scamen were right behind him. Gallagher was on a mission tonight, riding smooth as ever. The laps were ticking by as the top three battled for position, leaving it all to the final lap. Coming into the turn before the white flag, Dickinson stalled out, giving Scamen his chance to move up into sec-

Gallagher came across the line for the win. 250A had Chad Jeralds take the holeshot with Zach Martino and Bryan White already trying to fins a way around as the lap started. Railing the outside of the next turn White went by Martino through the whoops stopping short of Jeralds before the hairpin. Jeralds was keeping a good pace, but White was right one him with Martino close as they headed through the rhythm section. Coming around the corner into the infield triple White went hard inside, going down as Martino went by. White was able to get right up and hold on for third with Joe Smutny closing in fast. Jeralds had some great lines and crossed the checkers for the win with Martino right behind on his Husqvarna. 250B was out next with Mitch Cerda grabbing the holeshot, now back from a broken wrist. Kelsey Rogers and Ricki Williams quickly dropped

into second and third. Cerda was looking great for his first race back, holding smooth lines as Rogers and Williams battled back and forth for several laps. On the third lap Williams was able to make it stick going inside through the sweeper to take over second and pushing towards Cerda. With the white flag flying, Williams made a final push, but wasn’t able to make it stick for a close finish leaving Cerda up front for the win. Supermini was out on the track next with Anthony Wallace taking the holeshot followed by Gage Pace and Ben Ibianskas. Wallace showed some great speed out there, giving Pace a good run for the first two laps. Coming through the sweeper Pace railed the inside to get around Wallace for the lead. Wallace fought back and forth with Pace for the next two laps but wasn’t able to make anything stick.

Guffey out of Indiana took the early lead. Following right behind him was AJ Miksys and Ricki Williams. Guffey already coming off of a win in 125 2-stroke, was pumped up and riding hard. Miksys made a hard charge, but was riding a borrowed bike tonight and still working out the kinks. Coming around on the third lap Williams was able to get the inside line coming across the finish line jump to take over second. As the laps wore down Williams was unable to close the gap and Guffey and settled in for second ahead of Miksys.

Pleasure Riders MX Kick-off Cayuga Indiana - June 2 By Dave Henry Photos by Phyllis Blume Photography

M

any say the best way to predict the future is to look at the past. This must be true when it comes to predicting the weather at Pleasure Riders. Just as the 2012 season went with pounding rain the day before or night before a motocross, the 2013 season kicked off the same way. Friday night the skies opened up and drenched Pleasure Riders. The track crew was prepared for that rain, but nothing could help the other rain in the radar for Saturday. Not risking the possibility of needing to cancel Sunday’s event, the crew decided to give the track an extra day on Saturday to run off as much water as possible and dry prior to Sunday’s event. This glimpse of hope was short lived as Saturday night, the skies opened up again. Since the crew had not opened up the track on Saturday, the water continued to run off and everyone woke up to great skies on Sunday. The track was pretty soft in practice, but by the time the motos started it was in great shape. This event was round three of the 2013 ShopBigwheel.com Illini Super Series with double points and Yamaha contingency. The event also featured over $1000 in Fly bucks. The motos started with the group featuring 250A, 250B, +40, +50 and Schoolboy. Gate drop 1 was for 250A, 250B with Blake Copeland on his Copeland Honda grabbing

the holeshot. Cope was out front looking smooth as he consistently reeled off fast laps on the very tacky and rutted track. 250B saw tight racing between Trey Clark, Giancario Clouser and Nick Lasecki. Lasecki was off the Suzuki 2 stroke and now on a 4 stroke Yamaha and looking good. Out front all the way in both motos was Clark on the two stroke Kawasaki with Clouser and Lasecki swapping spots in motos 1 and 2. The overall finishing order was Clark,

Indiana’s Hunter Wilson in SuperMini.

Clouser and Lasecki. In +40 racing it was the Coffman’s Truck Service; ShopBigwheel.com backed Eric Trigalet making a mid race pass on Greg Derickson for the win. Trigalet was uncontested in moto two. Derickson went 2-2 on the day for second overall. Finishing third was Nick Daniels with a 3-3. Schoolboy saw the KTM of Gage Noblitt take the win with a 1-1 over Hunter Wilson with a 2-2. In 85Sr, checking out in both motos was recent Junior to Senior graduate, Jason Gepford. Gepford, on his Hall’s backed KTM was on the gas and making it look easy over some of the class veterans. Moto one saw the Kawasaki of Brody Beck finish a strong second with the Kawasaki of Noah Watts bringing home third. Second moto had a bit of a mix up in the results behind Gepford. Beck, after that strong moto one finish came home eighth for a fifth overall. Finishing a strong second was Noah Watts on his Kawasaki. The 3-2 gave him second overall. Landen Noggle is also a recent graduate from the Jr class, and his 4-3 landed him the final spot on the podium with an impressive third overall. In the +30A class Ashmore’s Shawn Kelley cruised home for the win over Jason Straight. In +45 it was the Suzuki of Brad Adams bringing home the win over the Husky of Don Large. 250C class was essentially the Chance Trigalet show as the TZR rider CYCLE USA, July 2013

gapped the field on his way to a 1-1 sweep. Finishing second on the day was Mooresville, IN’s Kevin Knox (22). Third overall went to Bryce Cox ahead of Kenner Shutt. Shutt pulled a nice holeshot in moto two. Shutt hung on to a strong fourth place and his 5-4 on the day was good for fourth overall. Supermini had Jason Gepford out front and flying on his KTM 105, going 1-1. Moto two wasn’t as easy as the first moto as Hunter Wilson pulled a nice holeshot on his Honda 4 stroke, and was looking good out front for a while. A couple of miscues dropped Wilson back to second by the end of the moto. Open B had Paris, IL rider Aaron Carter take home the win with a 1-1 on the day over the Honda of Lance Patchett. +30B/C saw local racer Jason Gerling on his Honda bring home his first win at his home track. Gerling went 2-1 on the day over Brad Adams. Adams went 1-2 on the day. Finishing third overall was the Kawasaki of Steve Bell (3-3). Our Women’s overall winner was Honda rider Megan Moan. Overall, the day turned out great with a very smooth program and a great track. Motocross will be back at

love going to a race that you can make a weekend out of, it makes it feel like a nice camping get away. That’s why I always look forward to the Arkansaw race weekends because I know every time I go the Richardson Family will have an open practice the day before the race, and a lineup of things to keep everyone busy and entertained for the week-

end. Oh and I forgot to mention an awesome track that is always prepped perfectly and always changing to mix it up. Let’s go racing! The +50 class seems to be getting bigger and faster every year, which means it is getting more and more interesting to watch. The battles are becoming more and more like the battles you find in the +25 and 30 classes. Today was the same. Getting the holeshot was Jeff Ramsey who is becoming a regular front runner in +40 and +50. Ramsey pulled a little gap over the rest of the field and the real battle ended up being for second between Richard Becker and Mike McNeil. Becker was giving it his all to stay ahead of McNeil who would continuously try to stick a wheel to the inside of Becker in just about every corner. At times he would get alongside Becker, but he couldn’t make the pass stick. Their battle would help them drive towards Ramsey, but it was too late as Ramsey took the win. Moto two looked to be a repeat as Ramsey was out front, Becker in second and McNeil trying in every corner. Just when I thought this was going to be the same as the first moto, McNeil pinned it in the last corner and made it to the checkered flag before Becker. That’s all it took after hanging in third for a total of eight laps straight, it was the last corner that mattered giving McNeil second and Becker third in the moto and overall. The +40 class saw a dominate performance by Richard Ziebell in both motos. One of the most impressive rides though was of Doug Forstner who started deep in the field in moto one,

and carved his way through the pack lap by lap, making it into second by the end of the last lap. Moto two Forstner stayed much closer to the leader, but the 450 power of Ziebell was just a little too much for Forstner’s 250F. Ziebell got the overall and Forstner settled into second once again. Open B had a good battle for the lead in both motos Jordan Schiller was challenged hard by Alex Bresina. Schiller and Bresina showed here potential to be future A class hopefuls, displaying much style and flawless riding as they did battle. It was awesome to watch them hit the massive uphill triples and still have focus on the race at hand. Bresina got close in each moto, but Schiller had just enough speed to stay a head going 1-1 in the end. The inconsistences were behind them as Aaron Bechel did end up picking up third overall with 7-3 scores. Bechel looked fast all weekend, but mistakes kept him from battling with the front two riders. Zach McNeil and Jake Smith rounded out your top five. Smith scored a third in moto one. Hunter Sayles absolutely crushed the field in the 250B class on a borrowed YZ125, and found himself looking for the rest of the field to catch up in the Supermini class. Hunter looked like a pro out there on his Rock River Supermini Yamaha, laying it flat on the huge jumps that some of the big bike riders were not even attempting. Hunter has the

speed to become one of the best Wisconsin has seen. In the 18 years of my racing, I can confidently say that I think he has the raw talent to do what others haven’t if he can get the right support. You couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better track this weekend. The Richardson family always puts on amazing event. Their July race is the best one of the year with a fireworks show that will most likely blow away any local fshow, a plane fly over dropping balls for door prizes, and a pig roast! DON’T MISS IT!

Spring Creek AMA Regional Millville, Minnesota - June 15/16 By Rolfe Otterness

J

eff Walker of Michigan ruled the roost at the North Central Regional qualifier for the Amateur Championships, held tat the premier midwest motocross track, Spring Creek Park. Walker drove off after the weekend with three overall wins, topping 450B Limited, 450B and College B/C. It wasn’t a total runaway as he had some tough competition from Indiana’s Josh Osby and Idaho’s Ryan Breece, among others. It is always interesting to see how riders from various locations compare when you get them all in one place to duke it out. Other riders of note were Jim Povolny, who smoked the troops in Vet 35+ and Junior 25+, and Cody Wilson who doubled up Benny Bloss and Kyle Durham shared a holeshot moment in College B/C class. wins in the C classes.

ley grabbed second overall with Kadlec, Nick Jackson and Ward trailing. Norris was looking good at this point but did not start the third moto after some trouble in another class. Myers once again had a good start and led early. Jackson was closing in bit by bit after getting by Hanson, then overtook Myers on the last lap for the win. Myers maintained second just a couple of bike lengths behind. A gaggle of riders were disputing third at the end with Ward getting the best of it over Chas Braden and Josh Struebig. Ward’s somewhat consistent 2-5-3 score was good for the overall with Kadlec taking his 4-3-6 total to the bank for second overall. Jarred Williams, from Michigan grabbed an early lead in the 450B Limited class. He held on for a couple laps but Ryan Breece was on the move and pulled off a pass on the last lap to take the victory. Walker displaced Williams with about a lap to go and Josh Osby got by Williams late in the race for third. Wisconsin’s Tylor Skodras grabbed a fifth. Osby charged to the lead early in moto two but Breece soon surged to the lead and held on all the way in. Osmy and Walker had a long battle over second with Walker gaining the advantage late in the moto. Osby kept it close to the flag for third. Fourth went to Jarred Williams who got by Cody Williams near the end of the race. Moto three was a Walker win as he led every round of the circuit. Osby held a pretty strong second for the duration with Breece taking over third at about the halfway mark when Jarred Williams fell at the bottom of the pro hill. Breece held on for third over Sam Wise and Jared Williams. In 250B, Josh Osby surged into the lead and went on for a win in the division 1 qualifier while Bryson Taylor won the other. The top riders from each qualifier as well a some riders from the last chance qualifier went on to moto two. Local favorite Jerry Robin was forced into the LCQ after going down in the qualifier and ending up 17th, but after an LCQ win charged out front in moto two on his 1985 CR250 to lead every lap. Brandon Gourley slotted into second just a bit behind Robin and stayed there to the flag with Eric Grondahl, Osby and Sam Wise rounding out the top five. Osby came out charging in moto three, leading the first few laps but had some trouble mid-race and went off-line at the top of the big downhill. He had to detour around the outside of the track to reenter safely and lost a few positions. Jacob Williamson inherited the lead and went on to take the win. Osby recovered well to get back into second which wrapped up the overall win for him. Taylor topped his second moto sixth with third in the last moto to secure the second overall place. Fourth in the moto went to Jamison Duclos with fifth going to Grondahl. Robin was charging up after falling and rallied for seventh at the flag.

Fun in the Mud at Sunset Walnut, Illinois - June 23 By Josh Rud www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

T

his past Sunday Sunset Ridge MX was off and running, with the heat finally finding its way to the area. With the heat comes humidity, this is the Midwest after all. The heat was followed up by some crazy storms, making for a very interesting end to the day. It rained hard for about 20 minutes, and the track was certainly saturated. The call was made to go for it, and the races continued while some elected not to rough it out, the ones that did sure looked like they had some fun in mud. Just trying to walk out on the track I thought I was going to be a mud victim several times, but luckily kept it on two feet. Earlier in the day when it was just hot outside, +25 was out on the track ready to go. In the first moto Greg Braet took the win followed by Cory Deadmond and James Garrett. The second moto was on the line when the oven was on high. As they came off the line Deadmond got out front with the lead followed by Jeff Schuck and Braet. While coming up the hill everything shook up as Braet moved into the lead and Garrett slid to third behind Deadmond. The second lap start with Garrett taking over second. The fight continued for third when the third lap started in the

exact corner, Schuck on his drive back to the front took over third digging into the inside and exiting hard to hold the position. Coming over the finish line Braet held on to his lead with Garrett and Schuck behind. This gave

Braet the overall for the day with Garrett in second and Deadmond third overall. Out next was 14-24 with seventeen riders lining up to battle. In the first moto Chris Antolak took the win with Nick Inman and Damon Tatar rounding out the top three. The gates dropped on moto two with Inman jumping out front with the holeshot followed by Antolak and Arick Abraham. Inman was in an interesting situation, I spoke with him earlier about his injured ankle and blown up bike, “the ankle is still hurt, but I’m making it. I blew up my bike at the regional in Millville so I’m out today on a stock Kawasaki I just picked up so I could ride.” He was certainly making the best of things leading the race while Antolak battled it out with him for position. Meanwhile, in third, Tatar was moving back up from a bad start and taking on Abraham, looking for a way around. He finally sealed the deal on an inside line before the finish area to move into third. The laps ticked by and Inman stayed out front taking the win with Antolak and Tatar behind him. 250C was packed today with thirty-two riders filling the starting line. In the first moto Ian Pistole took the win followed by Brett Guffey and Colton Burk. The second moto got underway with Pistole getting out in front of the large group followed by Dalton Hancher and Guffey. Bar to bar into the second turn, Guffey snuck around the outside taking over the lead with Hancher as Pistole held third. Charging down the hill Pistole was on the throttle hard moving, back to second.


Coming around the sweeper Burk made his move up through the pack taking over third from Hancher. Through the rhythm section Pistole had taken over the lead with Guffey still in second and Hancher moving back to third. The third lap brought the battle for third back as Phillip Stevens got around Hancher with Burk right behind him. Pistole was starting to make a good gap out front as Burk secured third just before coming down the hill on the last lap. Hitting the finish line Pistole took the win as well as the overall for the day. Guffey took second overall and Burk third. 85Sr was out with the track extra slippery, being the second moto to run in the mud. In the first moto Chase Sexton took the win followed by Anthony Wallace and Zach Tatar. The second moto got underway, losing several riders and Sexton flying into the lead. Ben Ibianskas and Mason Hulsey were battling for position, and to stay on two wheels while sliding through the first turn. Moving up the hill Hulsey got around Ibianskas on the outside as he cautiously hit the next turn to move down the hill. Sexton was on rails, unfazed by the mud and making a large lead. On the third lap Aiden Krisch made his way around Ibianskas for third, but it was short lived as Ibianskas took it back four turns later. Sexton took the win and overall. Hulsey took second overall with a fifth and second place finish while Krisch held third overall (4-4). Open A started out with seventeen riders, and in the first moto Ty Tyrrell took the win followed by Zach Coons and Greg Braet. Moto two came up to the line after the storm and eleven riders decided to pack it up and not go for the mud race, some may have even left before the decision was made to continue. Never the less the resulting race was great to

watch. Coming off the line Tyrrell took the holeshot with Coons and Chris Antolak behind him. Coming up the hill Antolak flew off the face of the jump and somehow managed to land it in the middle of the lanes, moving Nick Neys up to third. Coming down the hill Tyrrell was on the gas like it wasn’t even muddy, with Coons on his tail. Kenny Felgar into the mix, moving into third through the sweeper as the group flew through the puddles. Coming around for the second lap Dalton Abbott had slid his way into third. After a rough four laps, coming up to the checkers Tyrrell came away with the win and overall,

Ty Tyrrell won both Open A motos. A nice dry track, or in the mud, he was un-stoppable.

Coons crossing in second and Neys moving back into third. He had some trouble in the first moto not finishing so third overall went to Antolak. 250B was more of the same story with twenty-eight riders starting out the day and only nine left for the mud fest. In the first moto Bryson Taylor out of Florida took the win with Mark Marincic and Travis Prier behind him. The second moto got underway with Taylor taking off out front with the

The pack came into the sweeper with Dakin Coons making his move on the inside to take over third. The stage was set for the finish from this point with Taylor crossing the line for the win and overall for the day. Smith came through in second for second place overall, and Coons, after a sixth in the first moto, his third was good for third overall. The day out at Sunset Ridge was great as always with the heat wave and watering going on through-out the afternoon to keep the track in perfect shape. Then moving on into the afternoon with a nice cold breeze, rain and mud, it was like being two completely different events in one day, or maybe just the living in the Midwest. There is a lot planned for the summer out at Sunset Ridge MX be sure to check out their website for all practice and race schedules.

Riders tackle excellent Oakford HS Oakford, Illinois - June 6 By Kylie Kelsall

W

FO hosted yet another great race last Sunday, in Oakford Illinois. This was a bikes only race, so the day was relatively short. Oakford had a lot to offer riders this weekend, some of the challenges the riders had included a tall hill full of ruts, large logs, a tight track making it harder for passes, and even a creek crossing for larger bikes. The 50cc class started off the day well. In the 4-6 group Cole Morgan got a good start and stayed in first the entire race. His closest competitor Jhak Walker wasn’t far behind, making sure he challenged Morgan, forcing him to work for the number one spot. In the 7-8 age group Elijah Berryman was in first most of the race with Lake Plowman close behind. In the thirteenth lap Plowman slid into first. Plowman stayed

Logan Nelson finished second in Open B.

consistent to take the win. The 65 Beginner class held a lot of young racers. At the start of the race the #118 of Easton Morgan was in first, but in the third lap he lost some time, dropping back to third. He quickly bumped Parker Townsend out of second while Patrick Wessels held the lead to the end. Townsend got fourth after a brutal battle with Carson Tippie. Garret Ward dominated the 65cc class, after a good battle with Conner Mabus during the first two laps. By the third lap, Ward had pulled ahead and in the last lap Ward finished a minute and four seconds ahead. Nolan Blaesing (289) was the only Supermini rider to make four laps in under fifty minutes. Even though this race didn’t have as many battles between riders, everyone made great lap times and had a fun time in Oakford. TJ Nees rode well against his competitors Colten Zuidema and Tanner Whipple.

Nees placed first while Zuidema and Whipple battled for second. The two has tied lap times during the first two laps, but in the third Zuidema pulled ahead by a minute and at the end finished two minutes ahead of Whipple. In the Women’s class Autumn Franklin and Gretchen Orme had a nice battle for first. Orme started off in the lead with Franklin a minute behind, but on the last lap Franklin passed Orme and came in twenty seconds before Orme. The C classes had a good day racing as well. Open C had a battle for third between Adam Hosick and Jodan White. White started off out front, but Hosick matched his lap time and by the third lap Hosick was out front and gaining time on White. At the end of the race Hosick stole third as they finished behind Tyler Lauts and Brad Schroeder. Matt McDonald dominated 98-200C again this weekend. His speed and consistency keeps him on top week after week. When Matt was asked how he stays keeps fighting for first every

weekend he said, “I always go out and try my hardest. I try not to think about it if people are right behind me, and try to stay calm.” Open B’s battle was between Cody Toal and Logan Nelson. Nelson was out front during the first lap but in the second and third Toal matched his lap times. By the forth Nelson and Toal were fender to fender until the end. Toal came in seven seconds before Nelson. Dalton Brough won the 250B class in front of Wyatt Barnet and Ethan Olson who held up a great fight until the end.


Zac Downey #146 in the 98-200C class at the logs.


Drake Lineback and Matt Westlake battled for first in Open A. The riders lap times stayed consistent and close the entire race, until the last lap where Lineback conquered Westlake with thirty seconds to spare. Ryan Lenth dominated the AA class. Lenth battled the entire race with Austin Wells. Lenth and Wells had the same lap times throughout the race and on the last lap Lenth pushed ahead and took first. Oakford’s many challenges captivated riders and always makes for a good turn out at the races. WFO would like to thank the land owner of Trial Blazers, Dave Ayers, Dirt Riders for helping put on a great race, and all of the riders for coming out.

Meiers, Cunningham, Kainz Top Half Mile Beaver Dam, Wisconsin - June 8 By Bruce Currie Photos by Gordon Lunde

I

t wasn’t advertised on the posters or on the billboard at the entrance to the Dodge County Fairgrounds, but it quickly became apparent it was “Ladies Night” at the Beaver Dam Half Mile on Saturday night June 8th. With four of the fastest ladies on dirt in attendance (Alexia Hoffman, Morgan Monroe, Tiffany Sloan and Charlotte Kainz) it was obvious the fireworks were about to fly. When the dust finally settled after midnight, it was recent Dairyland Classic feature winner Charlotte Kainz continuing her win streak, topping all her male and female competitors to take both the 250 and Open class wins. Thirteen of the Midwest’s pros were also in attendance, and put on a knockdown, barn burning show in both the 450 and Open Pro finals. Adam Bushman, piloted the Southeast Sales 990 KTM to the first Open Pro heat win and Jake Cunningham used a 650 Kawasaki twin to top the second heat. It looked like a big twin feature was shaping up, but it was a pack of 450 Honda singles at the front as the Open Pro final launched. Ion Stear was up front with the Wiese brothers Kyle and Karlin hounding him. As the pack powered off turn four for the first time Michigan’s Kyle Meiers drove around the outside and put his Honda in the top slot. Dan Mischler quickly joined the dispute with Stear and Kyle Wiese. Meier gradually opened a gap on Stear and it looked like the running order was set, but Wiese got around Stear on the final circuit and Mischler’s bid for third came up short. It looked like Morgen Mischler intended

to spoil Ladies Night as he was packing a big gun in the shape of a 1000 V-Twin Suzuki for the Open Amateur final. Mischler quickly opened a lead, but trouble was coming. By lap four Charlotte Kainz had worked her way up to second and was hunting down the big twin. Kainz made her move with her 450 Honda around the big Suzuki coming off turn four on lap five, and then turned in a flawless final lap to break the draft and grab her first win of the night. Kainz wasn’t done, as she immediately moved to the front of the 250 final and looked set to dominate. Indiana’s Morgan Monroe had other ideas and closed the gap by lap four. Monroe had towed Christian Johnson along in her wake on her move to the front, and suddenly it was a three way battle for supremacy. Kainz dug down and mustered up two more fast laps to hold on up front, as Monroe had to draft back past Johnson at the line to maintain the 1-2 “Fast Ladies Up Front” finish. Sherwood Wisconsin’s Jake Cunningham got the jump as the 450 Pro final launched, only to have Kyle Weise draft past for the lead as they came to the line for the first time. Cunningham wasn’t allowing it as he retook the front on lap two and began to

open a lead. Ion Stear and Dan Mischler quickly moved up to contest second with Weise. It looked like Weise had the slot sewed up as the race wound down, but he slid off on the final circuit and Stear and Mischler grabbed the final podium spots. Half Mile racing dead? Not in Wisconsin thanks to the Beaver Cycle Club who have kept the annual Dodge County Fairgrounds event churning along for over 50 years. The 150 plus entries in attendance rewarded their perseverance with yet another top notch show.

Hayes Does the Double Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin - June 3 By Gordon Lunde

T

he second round of AMA road racing competition came three months after the opening round at Daytona, leaving some riders feeling a bit nervous and edgy like it was the first weekend of racing. This was especially true for Josh Hayes. Hayes had a crash and a mechanical DNF at Daytona leaving him with no series points. This weekend though, he came back to nab both wins in the AMA Superbike Doubleheader at Road America. That put him only 14 points in arrears of leader Martin Cardenas. Cardenas on the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 charged out front at the start of race one with Hayes in close pursuit. Hayes Wisconsinite Ben Carlson made a last second pass to finish second in the XR1200 race on Sunday. pulled alongside Cardenas entering turn three chase to Cardenas. just 0.818 seconds. and the pair rubbed bodies.

maybe that’s why they call it the “National Park of Speed.” The food vendors are also some of the best in the series. The Fan Walk is a nice family event for all to attend. The racers and teams all set up on pit road for autograph signing and handing out goodies from their sponsors. Fans love being able to get up close and talk with their favorite racers and maybe get a cherished item signed. People were bringing fuel tanks and other parts off their street bikes for racers to autograph as well as shirts, hats and posters. Camping is available at the track for tents or large RVs. There is even a family campground with early quiet times. The perimeter and connecting roads will get you all around the four plus mile track by car, bike, bicycle or walking. Taking in several areas for viewing is a great way to see the race track and helps you choose a favorite spot for your next visit. My friends have claimed the patio at the Turn 3 Café as their favorite. The entire weekend was filled with exciting racing, there’s the Sportbike class, Supersport races, and a crowd favorite, the Vance & Hines/ Harley Davidson Sportster XR1200 races. They are usually tooth and nail, drag out races to the finish. Steve Rapp changed that at Road America. The airline pilot took a day off work to race the Suburban H-D XR1200 on a one time

ride for the local dealership. Rapp arrived Sunday morning, did one practice, then qualified on the front row in the second qualifying session. At the race start Rapp jumped out front and pulled away, taking any mystery out of who was the fastest Harley rider on the day. The battle for second was a bit closer as Rapp’s teammate Benny Carlson of nearby West Bend, WI and Michael Barnes on the Rossmeyers H-D had a good race for the runner-up spot. On the last lap, coming up the

big hill to the finish line, Carlson got in Barne’s draft and pulled out the perfect draft pass for the position. Carlson got the spot by a 0.001 second margin putting Suburban H-D machines first and second on the podium. With the 2013 edition of AMA Pro Road racing at Road America in the books, it’s time to think of next year’s trip to this great track. Where should I camp? What corner should I watch from? Where should I eat? So many questions and only a year to make all these decisions…


Stateline MX Sees Big Changes Pecatonica, Illinois - June 1st By Josh Rud, More photos at www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

S

tateline MX underwent a complete track overhaul since I was last there, wiping the ground down to nothing and starting fresh. The new layout is great, with a little longer lap time, some technical spots, some sand turns and a nice long row of table tops. This certainly puts everyone on an even field with the track being new. The action was great with the new layout as well as bonus points motivating everyone a little more. It certainly made for some interesting and exciting racing! The Women’s class delivered a great race tonight. The start now comes straight and hits a sharp U-Turn then a quick right into the rhythm section that was making for some exciting starts. When the gate dropped Sammy Mandelke came out front followed by Brittany Lemke out of Wisconsin and Alyssa Haling. The battle ensued on the second lap, Haling got around Lemke to take over second place and started to make up ground on Mandelke. With two laps left the gap wasn’t able to be cleared with Mandelke came away with the win. Haling held on to second with Lemke third. 250B had some battles going on tonight with it anyone’s race out there. The gate dropped and thirteen riders rushed into the first turn with Rockford’s Kody Smith taking the early lead. Right on his tail was Brian Krohn and Talan Hansen, pushing their way through into the rhythm section. Coming down into the sand turn Krohn took the inside and got around Smith for the lead. Over the next table jump Nick Wallace came in hot, making up some time from getting bunched

up in the start to take over third. Coming into the table top section Krohn was still out front as Wallace went side-by-side with Smith, and came out ahead to take over second. After the very eventful first lap coming into the sweeper section Jordan Mackiewicz took the inside on Smith to secure third as Krohn started to pull away from the pack to take the win followed by Wallace and Mackiewicz. Open C came out next, charging hard to first turn with Kallob Kite taking the holeshot just ahead of Justin Peterson and Sean Jergens. Kite rode strong, holding off Peterson who was trying all angles to get around him. Coming into the third lap Peterson finally found his line through the sand section to take over the lead. The battle for third was heating up as well with Mike Nechvatal taking over as Juan Wonders followed him past Jergens. Coming through the tables Wonders was able to get the momentum he needed to get by Nechvatal on the inside before the finish line rollers. Coming across the line Peterson took the win followed by Kite and Wonders. 85Sr had some great racing in store has they came flying off the line, with Anthony Wallace getting out front for the holeshot. Shane Reilly and Ben Ibianskas were right on him around the first turn as they headed into the rhythm section. Wallace had been going fast all night, winning 85 Open and Supermini. This wasn’t holding anyone back as Ibianskas made his way around Reilly in the table tops and was giving Wallace a run for his money. The battle for third was also on as

Nolan Dickinson was going back and forth several times with Reilly. Going into the sand section Dickinson took the inside rut hard, and got a solid lead on Reilly. Coming down the sand rollers to the finish line Wallace held on for his third win of the night followed by Ibianskas and Dickinson. Open A tonight was a crazy battle with everyone out looking for the win. Coming off the gates riders rushed the first corner leaving Nate Mcleese out of Bloomington in an early lead followed by Maxx Malatia and Cameron Lansing. Going through the rhythm section Malatia and Lansing both shot by Mcleese as they dove hard into the sand section. Kyle White came up fighting from the back to take over third and start a charge to the front. Malatia was riding smooth, and started to pull away as White was trying to catch Lansing. On the third lap coming through the sand section White finally made is move around Lansing. The battle for third was still going on as Malachi Messenger was putting the pressure on Lansing through the sweeper but wasn’t able to make it stick. Coming across the line for the win was Malatia followed by White and Lansing, after a very tight race and a highlight of the night. Brian Krohn was at it again as 14-24B/C dropped next, taking the holeshot followed by Nate Hornung and Ricki Williams. The three of them battled through the rhythm section as the entire group was packed in tight. Tyler Lowe out of Wisconsin was able to sneak in through the chaos and take over second and


Chad Shaultz was trying to get around Williams. Krohn was able to pull away and stay out of the mess as Shaultz took a hard run through the table tops to get around Williams, and settle in for third. Shaultz, riding smooth as ever caught up to Lowe, but ran out of laps as Krohn crossed the line for the win leaving Lowe in second. The racing was action packed all night. The new track brought its challenges to everyone, and overall it is a very nice layout. Lots of action throughout the night with everyone finding new lines, and putting the track through its paces.

Perfect day in Mankato Mankato, Minnesota - June 2 By Dusty Rose & Keith McKenna

A

cloudy and cool morning greeted racers and spectators as they rolled in to the Kato Cycle Club’s race track on Sunday. The clouds quickly parted and the golden sun shone through to reveal a perfectly prepared racing surface, ready to provide excellent traction in the soft loamy little slice of racing heaven thanks to Lee Theis and the MotoKazie crew. I had never attended a race at the grounds, and I must say that the beauty of the track and surrounding area, with the bikes hooking up in the turns like they were on rails, had me thinking that I should put the camera gear up for sale, to reinvest in a motocross bike to put to the test, myself. The first race of the day saw riders in the 250A class winding their way through the undulating track that snaked it’s way up, down, and through the beautiful old growth forest, and then back into the clearing of the supercross section/ spectator viewing area where #730 Blake Raskovich eventually went 1/1 in to take the overall with Honda mounted Connor Ahlers from

Duluth taking the middle step of the podium with his 2/2 finish, and Kawasaki mounted Adam Koch round out the top three. In the 250Jr 14-16 class, Yamaha mounted Sam Kemp from W St Paul blazed his way to the top step of the podium with his 1/1 finishes. Girls Jr 9-12 racing saw Kourtney Trautner wheel her Kawasaki to a second place in the first moto, and a first place in moto two to take the overall, ahead of hard charging Paige Carlson from New Prague MN. In +55 racing action, Dave (Hollywood) Hencir from St Paul piloted his #17 Honda to a 1/1 finish for the overall. Six young warriors straddled their voracious steeds; lining the gates for battle in the Schoolboy class. The gates dropped and Walker Kruse was the first to reach the holeshot corner. The machines raced up and off into the hillside. Kruse emerged the leader, after one lap, with Kyle Lawler and Tom Flintrop hot on his tail. As the battle progressed, Flintrop passed Lawler. Kruse was first to capture the checkered flag. Flintrop hung on for second. With two turns to go Lawler spun out and went down and watched

Blake Raskovich swept both 250A motos for the victory.

Tom Flintrop rode really well for the Schoolboy class overall.

as Cody Wroe seized third place. The gates dropped for moto two, and Flintrop grabbed the holeshot as Kruse and Lawler banged bars for second. Flintrop gained precious seconds as Kruse and Lawler scuffled. With one lap to go; Lawler collided with Kruse, Kruse shifted, found the throttle, and broke away. Flintrop apprehended the first place position with Kruse and Lawler placing second and third. Thirty-one combatants loaded the gates for the 250C class. The valiant, red Honda, ridden by Stephan Kassel from Grand Meadow, MN, pulled the holeshot as Brandon Beranek snuck out to second. Brady Pyburn and Jorgen Dahl were fighting for third. As the leaders held their own, Dahl surpassed Pyburn and crossed the checkered flag in third place. In moto two, Kassel finished first followed by Jordan Fredicks and Levi Buckley. Six youthful riders loaded the gate for the 85cc 12-15 class. A lad from Farmington, MN, Kole Lemcke, broke free to grab the holeshot and ride off into the woods. Austin Nelson, Seth Car-

penter and Brandon Marsh quick to give chase. Nelson and Carpenter fought for second and third, but as they started the second lap Lemcke had bike trouble and fell back to third, and then eventually couldn’t finish. Nelson crossed the finish line first, followed by Carpenter and March. With his Kawasaki repaired, Lemcke won moto two. Austin Nelson riding his Yamaha placed second, all he needed for the overall.

All LaPorte at Pine Ridge ProAm

Nate Laporte slicing through the pack in the final of Open A.

Athelstane, Wisconsin - May 26 By Cody Wills

T

out while Kamm took over second. Running in fouth was Zach Coons, having a good battle with Calvin Knoll. Things change just after the halfway point when Laporte took a trip over the bars handing the lead Kamm. Laporte pushed his way to the rear tire of Martin in second, and made the pass just before the white flag and held on to second till the checkered. Knoll settled the battle with Coons taking fouth. Moto two wasn’t as action filled, as Laporte made it out front early and checked out.

he first ProAm at Pine Ridge Raceway presented by Southeast Sales started out with the remembering of two individuals close to the northern racing community. One was Sgt. Andrew Steiner who lost his life assisting someone on the side of the road. Andrew was a close family member to the Lacount family, and had just returned from Afghanistan last fall after serving our country. The other remembered was Luke Sanville, who was a long time racer in Northern Wisconsin. Most of the riders at the track knew Luke and his family. Luke lost his life in a car accident this past winter. The Zambon family had organized a slow lap. With Jesse Zambon the leading the lap on Luke’s bike. The first ProAm class of the day was 250A, and grabbing the early lead in moto one was Nate Laporte. Nate drove eighteen plus hours from the pro national in Lakewood Co. to make it to Pine Ridge. So with little sleep he put his Southeast Sales KTM out front early followed by snowcross star Ross Martin and another snowcross star Kody Kamm in third. It didn’t take long for Laporte to check Jesse Zambon leads the Luke Sanville slow lap. 52 CYCLE USA, July 2013

Martin kept it tucked in second while Kamm had to work his way up to third. Matt Maier didn’t have a good first moto, but worked hard to pick up fouth. The overall went to Laporte. Kamm’s 1-3 was good enough for second overall ahead of Martin’s 3-2 and Calvin Knoll (4-6). The Open A class was big enough they had to run qualifiers. Matt Maier and Ross Martin had a good battle in the first qualifier before Maier by the end took the win with Ty Tyrrell in third. Qualifier two saw Laporte and Kamm work on the field, putting a pretty big gap on everyone. Vaughn Mays picked up third. The final moto for Open A had Ross Martin jump our front early with Matt Maier in tow. Jake Vaness tucked into third after a good start. Laporte was way back in tenth with Kody Kamm in eleventh. This made for some great spectating as Martin and Maier used their skills to chug along and put in some smooth laps, distancing themselves from the pack. Meanwhile Laporte set fire to the field, blasting through, you could hear his 250 was in panic mode to make up time and get back up front. As the track got beat down it was cool to see Martin and Maier switch up their lines looking for the smooth way around the track. Meanwhile Laporte didn’t care where he was on the track, he was going for it. By the final lap he just made it past Maier and feel just short of winning the moto. LaPorte’s 1-2 scores were good enough for the overall, an impressive run for sure. Ty Tyrrell picked up fourth overall. The 16-24 class had some exciting racing as well. Brady Schernick was strong in both motos, leading for a while in each before


Kyle Ahola got by and eventually got the overall (1-1), coming from behind. The weekend came to a close for the Pine Ridge Pro Am with lots of great stories from the day, from Nate Laporte driving all night from the national to dominate, to the old veterans of Matt Maier and Ross Martin running up front and getting moto wins, and of course the remembering of two great people close to the moto community. The weather couldn’t have been better and the day couldn’t have been run smoother, so if you missed this race make sure not to miss the next one, you won’t regret the trip north!

O

kay, so the “fun� is over, spring has ended, and mother nature can knock off the raining every weekend thing. Riders again this weekend were blessed with radar showing green blobs and heavy rains. This was already a rain date from early May, and add to that a joint race sanction with District 16 and District 17 riders doing battle at the Fathers Day Hare Scrambles. Trying something new, running a GP the day before the Hare Scramble seemed to be a great idea. Riders from all types of racing have found GP to be a great change in the normal paces of racing. Woods, motocross, and grass track type layouts have been real popular, as it was again this weekend. Saturday started out at 1pm for practice, eleven classes and good racing time in each of the two motos. The average lap time was just over five minutes, and depending on the class, most ran four or five laps. Scored like a motocross using two moto format, dead engine start like a Hare Scramble kept it all interesting for everyone. Eighteen riders lined up for the 122-250 class and it was Travis Ward (131) and Ryan Moss (24) banging around in the lead. The Housenga brothers had a dual of their own. Logan had a little bad luck and got a sixth in moto one, while Brandin held strong for third. Zeno Molteni had a first moto hiccup as well but rebounded for a fourth in moto two. In the 65cc class, Garrett Ward (153) decided he was going to ride his 85 and left the 65 in the trailer. Sitting on the starting line he holds his hand up and states “it won’t start’ it’s flooded�. Instructed that he wasn’t suppose to be racing it yet, he was told to walk back to the trailer and get his 65. The race was started without him. After throwing a little temper tantrum he decided to ride and with a good deficit, he caught Conner Mabus, who was running a good race of his own, on the last lap. Logan Marshall go hung up on the hill for a little while but fought back to take a third. Carter Mabus, sporting a solid ride on his CRF70 Honda, never riding the bigger course before had a solid race for fourth. The “effort of the day� award went out to Travis Roberts, this is Wylie Roberts’ dad. Wylie has never ridden hills much before, like ever. Travis hoofed it around the whole moto, helping on the hills. Travis is a young man but he found out the hills at Fox Valley get steep quick, pushing a 65 up them every lap! Travis was looking for oxygen when we talked. The new Trailrider class had some great battles going on. Casey Shatters, Kris Hamilton, and Alex Parks were dueling hard all motos. Casey had a little more towards the 54

hurtin on the hills and valleys with un-needed moisture. Hare Scramble Sunday, the 65 beginner class sporting fourteen riders was greeted by some snotty slick trails. Thirty minutes was more than enough for these hard chargers. Jaret Zoellner and Noah Lee ran hard to fight for the lead. Allison Roland and Travis Wilkinson battled early with Elijah Berryman squeaking by in the end. The morning big bike class was going to be equally interesting, as around a ninety of them were slated to hit the trail. The hills were still nasty, so the plan was to take them out as there is nothing worse to deal with then forty C class riders trying to get up a hill, and no one getting it done. With seventeen +50 riders taking off first, some old wiley vet riders were thankful that those hills were gone as well. Greg Gourly rocked as he is the “new +50 kid”, kicking it against the older guys. Rick Marht ran him hard, but in the end Gourly had the upper hand. Greg Birkland back from a layoff and Steve Bland made the long drive north to join with DJ Ryan and Kevin Finefield, for an hour and half battle. Many of these riders rode both days, and got a good dose of cramps, aches and pains before they were done. Matt Mcdonald won the little C class with Blake Ryan and Brett Bolek in tow. With Mason Schuhler moving himself to the B class, they had a three way battle this day. Mcdonald pulled a fairly good lead late in the race. Looks like Bolek is moving to the B class as well after this event. A good bunch in this C class will be right up there soon, lots of history with these names. We always talk about the top riders of the day, and well this was another Matt Dissell, Ryan Moss, Alec Perry, Travis Ward

FVOR AA race. This time Dissell got out good, pulling in the lead on lap one. Today he decided after being sick all week that he needed to get after it and not give the young pups a chance to see any weakness. Ward and Perry both bobbled in the new endurocross section, allowing Moss to use some of his Trials experience, and ride the rail past them both! Later in the race Perry had a miscue and Tman passed him for third. Moss at the ripe old age of 38 had Ward hot on his heals, running second and third. Running a good portion of the moto track this day and running the “whoops” section gave those young legs an advantage as Ward jumped five deep for the pass on this mentor. Late in the race Moss and Perry battled before Perry locked down the position. Good racing for over an hour in this class made for a lot of conversation that night. Mason Schuhler, at just thirteen, and in his first race on a “big bike” not a super mini but a real motorcycle, not only moved from C to B class in two months, his lap times showed that the other top dogs better make room, because he’s coming their way. Schuhler’s fastest lap time 9:42 was only three seconds slower then the fastest lap time of the winner of the Open A class Tim Reid. Eleven Atv’s blasted off the line on this wet day, Kevin Johnson from the +30 class led through the barrels on lap one with Jerrod Thomas, and Chris Breitwieser hot on his heals. Johnson rode hard and came away with a 2nd overall, Thomas took the A class win and the overall. Breitwieser got close to Johnson, but late in the race got into a couple lappers and lost a chance to challenge for second overall. The first ever double header got some rave reviews. Riders got to race twice in a weekend, with two different style events, it keeps it interesting. GP on a Saturday afternoon with a HS on Sunday was a Ron Whipple from WFO idea, and it was well received! Next up, by the time you get done reading this article, July 21st will be the next round at Fox Valley Off Road, this being another District 16-17 event. Mother nature will be a factor as always, and as usual the off-road bunch will take it in stride and make a great race day out of it.

Kadlec mows over Cambridge Cambridge, MN - May 27 By Keith McKenna

A

fter a late start to the 2013 season due to the winter not willing to break it’s grip on the Upper Midwest, the season finally got into full swing at the Norsemen MC Motocross facility with the Memorial weekend racing festivities being produced by the crew from Moto City Raceway, with on course flagging duties being handled by the MN chapter of the Christian Motorcycle Club, many thanks for all their help. Sunday, race day dawned cloudy with a slight chance of rain and temps around 50 degrees. Conditions that would insure the sandy track would stay in great racing shape. Many time Snowcross Winter X-Games winner Tucker Hibbert made his way south from his home in Pelican Rapids for some racing on two wheels on Monday of the long weekend, and took home a win in the Open A class with a 2-1 finish, and second place hardware after finishing 22 in +25 behind Cambridge local Scott Jendro.

Big day at Motorsports Park Byron, Illinois - May 26th By Josh Rud, more photos at: www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

O

n Sunday May 26th the stage was set for Nuke round 4 to get underway. The track was in great shape as always. There was some weather moving through the area and a little rain here and there, but nothing to worry about, free water makes for a great track! With the regional approaching the track was in its final setup to give everyone a chance to get used to the changes before the race, and the classes were stacked as riders wanted to test everything out. In the first +30B/C moto Dustin Noble took the win followed by Eran Salzmann and Martin Mecum. Coming off the line for the second moto Salzmann got out front early with Noble and Marcus Hefty right behind him. The three battled it out for a couple laps before Noble made his move into the lead and started to pull away. Meanwhile in the back, Mecum had been recovering from getting bunched up at the start and made his way up to third. Coming across the checkered flag it was

Noble, Salzmann and Mecum making the overall the same. 14-24 was another of the early classes, and in the first moto Brandon Marescalco took the win followed by Justin Hager and Logan Skaggs. In the second moto Marescalco took the

holeshot with Skaggs and Matthew Meyers tight to his rear wheel. Coming through the sand whoops Skaggs made his charge and took over the lead, hitting the

inside of the next turn and started pulling away right away. Brian Krohn on his KTM was charging hard, and coming up on the white flag got around Meyers to take over third. Marescalco was starting to catch back up with Skaggs, but the checkers flew leaving Skaggs up front for the win. Marescalco still took the impressive overall. 85sr came out strong today with Dawson Ryker taking the win in the first moto followed by Mason Hulsey and Devin Stang. Charging hard off the line in the second moto Stang barely edged out Ryker for the lead, with Hulsey close behind them. Right away Jimmy Weber started pushing Hulsey. Coming down the hill after the first lap Hulsey had went down and was left in the back as Weber was holding onto third. Up front Ryker was all over Stang and finally able to make a move through the sweeper to take over the lead. They came across the finish with Ryker taking the win and the overall. Stang was second overall and Dylan Denson grabbed

third overall with a 4-5 finish. Open C riders were out in full force today with nineteen entrants packing in for action. In the first moto Nathan Lange took the win followed by Colten Burk and Steven Freund. Coming off the line in the second moto, Roland Gomez Jr got out front off the line followed Freund and Lange. Lange was on the pipe and flew around the outside of everyone in the first turn taking over the lead. Coming through the sand on the second lap Burk had made his way up to second, chasing Lange. The laps ran out with Lange taking the win after the heated battle followed up by Burk and Freund, leaving the overall Lange, Burk and Freund. 250B delivered a great race today. In the first moto Mark Marincic took the win followed by Brian Krohn and Ricki Williams. The gates dropped on the second moto with Jacob Wever jumping out front for the lead, but Marincic and Drew Jackson were right behind him. Coming down the hill the order had shook up with Wever still in the lead, Krohn and Williams right behind him. Marincic had some bad luck on the back of the track putting him at the back of the pack. Coming to the white flag Jackson had moved into third, leaving Wever up front the next final lap to take the win followed by Krohn. Krohn took the overall with two seconds. +25 came out racing hard today, in the first moto Justin Kelly took the win followed by

Andrew Tyrrell and Brad Behrens out of Wisconsin. The gates dropped on the second moto with Tyrrell taking the holeshot followed by F T. Kutzler and Kelly. Coming down the hill Kelly had made his way into second with his sights set on Tyrrell. With the white flag waving Kelly made his move blasting through the sand getting around Tyrrell for the lead. Meanwhile in third Behrens had been charging from the back of the pack, and passed Kutzler to secure third for the final lap. Coming across the finish Kelly took the win as well as the overall with Tyrrell second and Behrens in for third. The day was great out at Motorsports Park today, regardless of the weather which got pretty heavy towards the end of the day. The track held up really well with everyone working hard as always. The Nuke Series is flowing great with the action intensifying as every race passes. Be sure to make your way out to Byron, if you’ve never seen the track, it’s a very well put together facility and an amazing track.

Berm Benders’ Fathers Day MX Brook Park, Minnesota - June 16 By Keith McKenna

S

unny, Sixty-two degrees as practice got underway with perfect conditions for a day with friends, family, motorcycles and lets not forget, Fathers, on Fathers Day. Parents lined their little racers up, as the PeeWees and Minis were the first out onto an impeccably prepared race course situated on the edge of the great north woods of MN. Standing at the line, it was hard to tell who was more excited and nervous, the little racers or their parents. A couple riders got a little over exuberant with the throttle coming off of the line and performed text book loops, but were quick to re-mount. McCoy Leger from just down the road (literally), was a big winner taking victory in both 50cc oil injected 4-8 and 50cc 4-8 with three first and a second place finishes in his motos. Tanner Schlegel won in 50cc premix 4-6 with 1-1 motos in class and standing on the middle step of the podium in three other classes on the day (busy boy). Soon after, the Girls 9-12 lined up for some great action and astounding air time. The Girls winners were #571 Kourtney Trautner from Watertown SD going 1-1 for the overall ahead #145 Kiara Wittwer and Piper Romfo. The young girls are evidently getting some pretty serious coaching from some of their veteran racing friends. They were leaving nothing on the table. The front runners on the 85cc 9-12 bikes were bustin out some very impressive triple jumps that had Mama shakin in her shoes! #452 on a Yamaha, Aaron Boatman was on a hot streak today scoring wins in all his motos for the overall in two classes, while showing all comers the way home. You always hear the Vet and Senior riders say that they take it easy, because they have to get up for work on Monday. I guess that may be true if they show up on Monday at the poker table for work. They were going “all in” on Sunday, not averse to assuming some risk I guess. They were putting on a great show, laying down some fast laps over the huge supply of doubles, triples and the flat sweeping high speed corners, that make up the championship caliber track that Kurt and Kelly Caswell and a whole host of loyal volunteers have built up. In +30A racing, Sheldon Fratzke brought home the gold with 1-1 finishes, while in VetB, Courtney Sampson went 1-1 to stand atop the podium and Jay Kangas sweeping Vet-C. Mike Mineheine climbed to the top step of the victory stand in both +45A and +50 racing with a perfect score on the day. You always know when the A riders are 62

at the gate, the fence is lined with spectators, and as always they put on a great show. It is amazing, the amount of abuse that the bikes can withstand, and these riders show their rides no mercy when the spoils of victory are at stake. Historically, Minnesota motocross talent runs deep and this season’s talent pool is no different. Jared Trepanier from way up to the north, in Bemidji, stood on the top step in 250A and 14-24A racing with an almost perfect score while setting a blistering pace. Jake Bostrom applied some pain to the track

to capture the gold in the +25A sprints. If that guy flies any higher in a race, he may seek sponsorship from NASA to get heat absorbing tiles for the bottom of his bike. In the Women’s class Marissa Polencheck went 1-1 on the day for the overall with Trisha Hoover going 3-2 for second overall as Mariah Braastad rounded out the podium. The motos ran like clockwork with one race starting as the previous race was finishing their last half lap, and the watering truck

430 Entries at Perfect Azzie Lake Mills, Wisconsin - June 9 By Dave Hollub

F

inally summer weather has arrived and over 430 entries made the most of the weekend at Aztalan Cycle Club. Saturday was another chance for everyone to come out and practice before the race on Sunday. Once again the club members had the track in top notch condition. Owen Haseleu launched out as the 50Sr gate dropped in moto one to grab the holeshot with a hard charging Noah Bindas close behind. Bindas went down in the scoring area as he was starting to stick a wheel in on Haseleu. Bindas continued on to finish second with Cole Godfrey and Nathaniel Froemming rounding of the top four. Moto two turned into a running battle between Haseleu and Bindas, with Haseleu successfully defending his lead several times to take the win. Once again Godfrey and Froemming mixed it up for third, with Godfrey having the edge as they passed the checkers. Wyatt Liebeck grabbed a big holeshot when 85cc 9-11 took their gate drop, but he couldn’t hold back Mitchell Nooyen. Nooyen

Dustin Hafenstein (317) and Scotty Whitthun in 250C.

Owen Haseleu won the 50Sr overall.

was out front as he hit the plateau and he continued opening a bigger gap all moto. Bailey Otis and DJ Gritzmacher got by Liebeck before lap two started. Gritzmacher got a good jump out of the gate in moto two and rounded the holeshot in the lead, but once again Nooyen was already stretching a lead by the time he hit the plateau and Gritzmacher was busy defending against Liebeck. Gritzmacher went down on the East end and by the time he finished lap one he was running mid pack. Otis and Liebeck mixed it up the rest of the moto with Liebeck finally gaining the edge in time to cross the finish in second for the moto. Marco Gravedoni finished fourth with Gritzmacher close behind. The overall went to Nooyen with Otis (2/3) second and Liebeck (4/2) third. Nooyen, “I got a couple holeshots and won two classes. I finally hit the big plateau. I cased it the first time but then I got it pretty good, it’s really fun to do it. The second moto I pulled the

holeshot and then just rode pretty good. Thanks to Doc360, my Mom and Dad, Southeast Sales, Team2, Jim Vaness, and my mechanic Heise” Forty-one riders lined up for Open C and by the time they rounded the holeshot Eli Walters was out front with Mason Persha, Bryce Telfer, and Kristopher Korn close behind. Walters began opening up a gap on the rest. Persha had a battle going until the white flag lap when Telfer pushed his way through and finished in second. Persha and Dillon Riemann were rubbing shoulders around the holeshot in moto two with Walters a couple spots back. Persha was out front, but by the time they hit the scoring tower Walters was in the lead and held on to the finish. Persha held second the rest of the moto while Riemann and Korn battled for third. Later in the day after Walters also clinched the 250C overall with two moto wins he told me, “ I still have 125Jr to race, and hopefully I can get the moto win to go 2/1 for the overall in that class also (he ended up getting second for a second overall). In 250C Mason and I had some pretty good battles but we both seemed to make some mistakes, hopefully next time I don’t make the mistakes and get it done right. In the first moto I had to get by some people. A couple people crashed and I almost got hit by a bike on the first lap but I worked as hard as I could to get out front. Once I got there I just rode hard and tried to stay there. Second moto I got a better CYCLE USA, July 2013

start and made my passes in the first couple of corners and then just checked out. I would like to thank Jett Boots, ProTaper, Fly Racing, WPS, Speed Graphics, Amsoil, and my Mom and Dad.” +45 again was a Frank Weiss/ Tom Dretzka battle. When the gate dropped on moto one Dretzka was out front but before the lap was complete Weiss had slipped into the lead, and despite pressure from Dretzka and Paul Marescalco, he held on for the win. Patrick Boyden and Mike Boyden were mixing it up for fourth with Patrick finishing ahead. Kevin Yde led everyone onto the track in moto two but once again Weiss was on the move and midway through lap one was out front with Dretzka right on his rear wheel. Midway through lap two Marescalco slipped into third. Weiss went 1/1 to take the overall while Dretzka was second with his 2/2 day. When Open A took their gate drop Brandon Marescalco rounded the holeshot out front. Joseph Dretzka was not going to sit in second long and by the time he hit the plateau he was out front followed by Jacob Vaness and Ryan Hughson. All three held their positions to the finish with Dillon Kau close behind when the checkers flew. Dretzka got the jump in moto two and led from gate drop to checkers. Vaness ran second and held off pressure from Hughson to the finish. Justin Hall blasted down the start straight in +25B/C to grab the holeshot ahead of eighteen others. By the beginning of lap two Jake Smith was sticking a wheel in on Hall, looking for an opening to get out front. Midway through the lap Smith jumped the plateau in the lead, but couldn’t shake Hall. Nate White had settled into third and managed to keep some breathing room between himself and Lucas Padrutt who was battling with Greg Niles for fourth. Hall was able to get back by Smith a couple laps later to take the moto one win. In moto two it looked like Smith had the holeshot wrapped up but when he swept wide in the corner Kevin Yde slipped inside and stole the lead. Smith wasn’t wasting any time this moto and quickly got out by. Smith stayed out front and held off Hall to the finish while Padrutt and Niles continued their first moto battle for the third slot. Padrutt finished third. Smith, “I had a battle going on all day with Hall and actually had battled him last month also. Last time he won going 1/1, so it was good to take him this time. In moto one I got by for a lap or so but he got past me before the end. Second moto I got out front right away and was able to run away with it. It was a good day and I had a lot of fun. The track this month and last was probably the best condition I have ever rode at Azzie. The track maintenance they have been doing lately has really shows.

tography for all their help.” John Stewart ran away with the Non-Current class as he led every lap. In moto one Cody Richter was running second for the first two laps but began to fade (3 years away from racing will have that effect) leaving room for Ian Malinowski and Jon Natzke to slip by. Stewart was out front in moto two with Malinowski running second, just ahead of Richter and Jacob Price when the checkers flew. The 250B class belonged to Justin Wolf as he grabbed the moto one holeshot and stayed out front to the finish. Jamison Duclos was firmly set in second and Maxwell Malkmus third. By the time the white flag came out Taylor Strauss had slipped past Malkmus for third. Moto two was a repeat for Wolf as he got out front and proceeded to open up a gap on the class. Malkmus was holding on in second but had Duclos all over his rear fender, looking to make a pass which he did on lap two. When the checkers flew Malkmus was still in third with a small gap before Travis Schaefer crossed in fourth. By the time the final moto was over it was obvious that everyone that came out had a great time on a perfect

Wyatt Liebeck finished second in 65cc.

Fathers Day MX at Kellogg

Jay Ignaszewski finished third in +40C.

Kellogg, Minnesota - June 16 By Dusty Rose

O

n a bright, sun shining, (rain free) Father’s Day, Motokazie held Round four of their 2013 MX Series. “Boogity, Boogity, Boogity! Let’s go racing, boys!” Six young men loaded the gated for the 85cc 9-11 class. Kaleb Carmen, out of Rochester, MN sped out and grabbed the holeshot with Austin Kristiansen and Cade Marten were hot on his tail. In the second lap Nolan Rommel gave it some throttle and passed Marten before the rest of the moto wound down and Carmen and Kristiansen finished in the top two spots. Carmen jumped out to a lead in moto two as Kristiansen, Rommel and Marten held down the next three positions. Kristiansen dropped his bike in the first lap, losing three positions. Marten got held up in the situation and lost a position as well, to RJ DeVaan. A lap later Marten and Kristiansen pinned it, finding the extra momentum to slip past DeVaan, then late in the moto, Marten picked off one more position as he made it by Rommel for second. Carmen took the win, and overall ahead of Rommel. It was a fun class to watch as the youngsters really gave it their all. In the Women 12+ class, Jacqueline Riess ripped a holeshot, leading Katie Vanderwerf, Sophie Johnson and Lafayette Dillon as they made their way around the track. 68

CYCLE USA, July 2013

Riess was on the gas, and opened up a huge lead. Vanderwerf encountered some trouble and watched Johnson and Dillon pass by for the final order. Moto two saw a flawless victory for Riess, completing her two moto sweep for the easy overall. Johnson, riding her Honda placed second as Vanderwerf redeemed herself and finished third. The +40 class had five youthful gentlemen roar out of the gates. New Market, MN’s Tony Carver led the pack as Marc Mikkleson, John Hamilton, Jeremy Peak and Jay Ignaszewski battled for the runner-up spot. After four laps, Carver crossed the finish line to take the win. Hamilton fought his way to finish second. In the second moto Carver “Got-RDone” again and crossed the finish line for another win. Hamilton, Ignaszewski, Mikkleson and Peak respectively followed him across. Thanks much to The Hitching Post, whom presented gift cards to the first moto, first lap winners. To celebrate Father’s Day, Motokazie organized a father/son or daughter, relay race. I’m glad to announce that Women’s class winner Jacqueline Riess.

D22’s Rambling Wheels deliver New Hartford, Iowa - June 8th

T

here are times when you pull into a race, and just know it’s going to be great. This was one of those days, and it all started with the inviting group of club members at the front gate. Smiles, and a group of women having a nice time, making

sure everyone’s day was starting right. The New Hartford Racing program is held on the longtime club grounds of the Rambling Wheels Motorcycle Club, and there was no shortage of club members working the event. From parking, to tending to everything on the track... it was great seeing so many people involved, and enjoying the fact that there was a race to be held. A week earlier, ninety percent of the track was under water. Statewide flooding effected this area in a big way, but that was a week ago. Today, the track was mint... a little shorter, but in great shape due to the hard work of the club, and

some “right” weather from mom nature. New this year, the track was running in reverse, and all the jumps and such were adjusted well for the new direction. After rider’s meeting and practice, it was finally time to go racing! With a dozen entries in the 250C class, Aaron Cox worked hard through the first two corners to hit the long straight in the lead. Adam Yarlott was in the mix early, but a mistake dropped him back to fifth as Matthew Waltz and Waterloo’s Cody Rust took over second and third. Right away the leaders started opening up gaps on each other. Yarlott took a shot at Dustin Ellingson for fourth. It held up for a couple corners before Yarlott made another mistake and slipped back to fifth, and then to the back of the pack. Jon Wilson made a late moto pass on Austin Wise

Plenty of helpful club members were on hand making it a great event.

Riders gather for the morning meeting before practice.

Jordan Harnish had a good day for second overall in 250A.

for fifth and they finished in that order. The second moto was a near repeat for the two front runners. Cox led as Waltz waited for the mistake that just never came. Yarlott was in the hunt again, but this time had a far more consistent ride and wrapped up third in the moto. Wilson and Ellingson were fighting for fourth, and this time Wilson got the nod (5-4) for fourth overall. Cody Rust fought tooth and nail for the early Schoolboy lead. It took half a lap before eventual winner Keanan Tinkey broke free of his efforts. Meanwhile, Cedar Rapids’ Lucas Rundle grabbed third to finish ahead of Jeremy Dietch on his Honda. Tinkey ran off with the second moto win as Rundle finished second ahead of Matthew Vargrt. Rust didn’t make the moto. The 50Sr class had fourteen riders, most of them on little KTM’s. Off the start in the first moto it was anyone’s guess who had the holeshot. It wasn’t until a half lap later before Tye Bradley actually had the lead, and with James Orres all over him still. Add to that, Harrison Gibson was putting his LEM to the test, wide open anywhere possible to try and move up. He pushed a little too hard before the end of the first lap, falling back to fifth. He would climb ahead into third again, only to spin out on a jump and eventually finish back in fifth. Meanwhile, up front Bradley eventually got a little breathing room. Orres, “I slid out in one of the corners out there, but it was ok. I had fun, and really liked the track The jumps are the best” Clay Fishback and Ronnie Orres finished 34, as Bradley was happy with the win. Bradley after the moto, “I tried really hard to get the holeshot and stay out front. James and I battled pretty good for a while, and it was fun.” Bradley was back out front in the second moto, and right there behind him was the Orres brother team, in second and third. James Orres was ready to improve on his first moto second place, and used a sweeping outside line in the second lap to get around Bradley for the lead. Later in the moto, and after a much longer effort, Ronnie Orres also made a pass, into second. They finished in that order with James Orres taking the overall ahead of Bradley (1-3) and Ronnie Orres (42). Donavan Hanson rode well (6-4) for a nice fourth overall. Kaiden Knaack finished the moto in fifth. Open C also had a good turnout. Exiting the first turn, 250C class winner Aaron Cox had a two bike length lead. He held it through the first couple sections before Kyle Gaston went to the inside over a small double that Cox wasn’t jumping. Gaston was able to still catch the inside line in the following corner and take the lead. Colin Weber, Dustin Ellingson and Trevor Nichols were swapping positions, each trying to control third. It was two laps of constant efforts by Cox, and deCYCLE USA, July 2013

spite never jumping that double, he made his way past Gaston as the white flag came out, and then ran with it for another moto win. Nichols took his time, making a last lap pass to finally get to third ahead of Ellingson. Cox, “It was good out there. I had to work for it, to get back past him (Gaston) after he passed me on the first lap. I stayed close, then he tripped-up in a tight back corner and I was there to get around.” Ellingson, “there was already getting to be a lot of bumps, and the rut back there just finally got to me. The track is all switched around from last year, I actually like it a lot better this way. I wish the woods section in back was open, but it is still flooded.” Gaston made Cox work for it again in the second moto, leading early and then keeping him in check after getting passed. Nichols put in another great ride for third, this time ahead of Weber and Ellingson. Cox came back on Sunday and won the first two motos in the two C classes before the day was cut short. This gave him four overalls, and a win each time out. Open A had some of Iowa’s heavy hitters for sure. Off the start, Justin Reed had the best jump on his KTM, and hit the first two corners perfecly to lead everyone through the

first half lap. He wasn’t alone though, with Bobby Hanson and Dalton Brandel rubbing fenders in the tight corners. Hanson is one of those riders you know is never content following anyone, and he used a nice outside-inside move to just slip under Reed. From there, Hanson rode hard, and kept Reed at bay

for the win. Brandel slipped back a couple spots as Jordan Harnish and then Chase Conis caught momentum after being in the back off the start. Conrad Shipper took over fifth in the final laps to set the final order. Storm Lake Honda’s Hanson repeated his winning in the second moto. Hanson after the

moto, “I had a good day; no falls, good starts, and I won three A class motos. The track is getting a little dry now, but it held up well. I hope to hit a bunch of D22 events this season, as well as chase some ProAms, and go after some of those bigger events. It will hopefully be a great season.” Justin Reed put in another solid moto for second place as Conis improved his first moto finish to third, for third overall on his Kawasaki. Rick Retterath led almost the entire first moto of the +40B/C class. “I didn’t quite get the holeshot out of the first turn, but I got into the lead in the second turn and then just kept pushing forward. The track is a little one lined, but there are some ruts out there to keep it interesting, and you have to pay attention. Considering it was under water, it is real good and dry in a lot of sections already. I’d really like to thank Rambling Wheels for all the work they did to get this place going, particularly with the flood. It was a big job, and we’re lucky to be here racing right now.” Behind Retterath, Mark Busby held second until Kevin Reed passed on the second lap. As Reed pulled away in an effort to catch the leader, Nicole Weiss did all she could to push Busby and move up to fourth. Busby had different ideals, and rode clean to finish third. Gary Schultz from Tiffin, IA finished fifth on his Kawasaki. Retterath led all the way in the second moto, while Reed finished second, after a moto-long battle with Weiss. Cole Seip fin-

ished sixth in the first moto, but fought to fourth ahead of Gary Schultz this time. It was good for fourth overall also. The 65Jr class ended up being a Fort Dodge, IA battle over the top spots. It took Gage Steburg almost a full lap to shake Malig Mccaleb for the lead. Just then, Mccaleb slid out and dropped to fourth. He quickly went back to work, passing Ronnie Orres and Harrison Gibson to re-take second, half way through the moto. In the second moto Steburg repeated his winning ways for a 1-1 sweep to the overall. Mccaleb finished second, as Donavan Hanson turned it up for third ahead of Braxton Steberg. Steburg (1-1), Mccaleb (2-2), Ronnie Orres (4-5) and Braxton Steberg (6-4) filled the top four spots overall, all living in Fort Dodge. Must be something in the water over there. Donavan Hanson (8-3) was fifth overall in the sixteen rider class. Having been my first time at the facility, I went away with a great impression. Great people working the track, concessions and all... and a really friendly bunch of racers and their families. There’s something about a good old midwest motocross race held by a well established club that is hard to beat. Everyone had a good day, and even with rain on the way, were looking forward to a second chance on the track come Sunday. If you get the opportunity to attend one of the club’s events later this season, make sure to do it!
