Road America Expands Vintage Motorcycle Weekend. Elkhart Lake, WI., Road America is adding new event features to its annual vintage motorcycle weekend. The Road America Vintage Motorcycle Classic, June 11-13, 2010, will mark the return of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) with the addition of motocross, cross country and trials on courses built specifically for vintage racing. “Road America is acknowledged as a world-class road racing facility. When we discovered that the property had hundreds of acres of prime off-road terrain, we were pleased to add AHRMA National Off-Road events to the traditional schedule of road racing,” said AHRMA Executive Director David Lamberth. Road America has a large motorcycle racing fan base and always encourages vintage motorsports enthusiasm. Track president George Bruggenthies is pleased with the expanded event, “The world of vintage motorcycling is a vibrant, diverse family that includes, collectors, restorers and enthusiasts who just love to ride old bikes, as well as racers. Road America is a great place to celebrate that spirit,” he stated. Other race-weekend features are being added through a partnership with longtime motorcycle events producer Will Stoner. Stoner is coordinating a swap meet, club corrals and a moving bike show. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to do a swap meet and bike show in such a fantastic location. The swap meet area is one of the best I’ve seen, the roads are fantastic and Wisconsin hospitality is great,” Stoner said. The swap meet is open to all brands of motorcycles, but is limited to bikes, parts, memorabilia and tools. The on-site bike show will include judging with awards presented in 13 classes and a leisurely 40-mile ride through the scenic Wisconsin countryside. Club Corrals will be open to all vintage motorcycle clubs and organizations wishing to have a corral spot on Club Row. The spaces will be free to any club that registers by June 2. Clubs will be able to park their bikes, sell memberships and club regalia, as well as have a On The Cover: Joe Perron at MotoKazie’s Kellogg, MN D23 season opening MX. Photo by Michael Anderson

All motorcycles using the Jackson County trails are required to purchase a County use sticker prior to operating on the trail system. ATV trails are limited to street legal motorcycles, while the Crawford Hill Single track trails and associated ATV trail are open to both street legal and off-road motorcycles.

Over 600 Rock Azzie Lake Mills, Wisconsin - April 11 By Dave Hollub

E

very year the first race of the season is full of anticipation as everyone wonders who is in what class, on what bike, and what new riders are going to be the ones to beat. The one constant in the past was that Aztalan would be the same old Aztalan as every past season. This year that statement turned out to be completely wrong as the Aztalan track crew had spent the past month redesigning a large part of the layout. The talk around the pits Saturday night centered on the changes, especially the new start. Once the first gate dropped on the day it was obvious the hard work had paid off and everyone seemed to enjoy the changes. The first gate drop went to the 50Sr class and Carter Biese powered his KTM off the line with DJ Gritzmacher close behind. By the time the first lap was over it was Bryce Hansen out front with Gritzmacher and Max Earley chasing him. Biese had gone down and was now back in sixth, but twisting the throttle even harder and by the time lap two was over he had moved up to third. For the next two laps Biese was all over Gritzmacher’s rear tire but he couldn’t find a spot to pass. On lap five Biese finally slipped by but got tangled up with a lapper, and Gritzmacher was able to power past to re-take second behind Hansen. Biese put his head down chasing Gritzmacher. The two were jumping bar to bar down the highway rhythm section and Biese found a slit big enough to grab second place just feet from the checker flag. The moto two holeshot went to Biese. Gritzmacher was running second with Earley third. By lap four Hansen was pressuring Ear-

ley looking for him to leave any opening. As they went through the finish area Hansen pushed his way in and Earley got caught in a rut and went down. Biese took the overall with a 2/1 finish while Hansen (1/3) was second and Gritzmacher (3/2) was third.

Later Biese told me about his race, “I’ve been racing two years now. In the first moto I went down twice, I got cross rutted in the back in that big corner where we cut the sand whoops. The track is pretty great, it’s awesome. I’m going to try to go to Loretta Lynn’s again this year. Thank you to my 6

Brandon Pope edged out Tylor Skodras for the holeshot and set about putting some breathing room behind him. Skodras was second over the plateau with Thomas Garrett and James Burd close behind. Pope went on to win the moto while Skodras protected second and Garrett finished third. Pope again grabbed the holeshot in moto two with Garrett close.

Later Stambolic told me “The race went really well for me and I was happy with what I got for overall. I rode pretty hard, it was a good day of racing. The track has changed a lot since the last time I rode on it last year, and I like it better. I would like to thank Ride Extreme Sports, Karter Busse, my mom and dad.” The Super Mini class is new to the district schedule and thirteen riders came out to run it. Alexander Nagy was out front leading the class both motos from start to finish while Dakin Coons ran second and Riley Telfer held third. The class looks to be one that will develop some exciting racing quickly as the season goes on and more riders get equipped for it. Nagy commented on his day, “I haven’t

been here in a while but the track is really nice now. It was really fun running the track today”. Overall it couldn’t have been a more perfect day of racing and everyone left happy with the new track look. Hopefully when everyone comes back in May more changes will be ready. Remember there is a Saturday open practice to give everyone a chance to fine tune their race lines. Hope to see you then.

Saddleback’s Spring Fling HS Bedford, Kentucky - April 11 By David Dunnuck Photos by Cheryl Dunnuck

H

istorically, the Saddleback East Hare scramble event is held in late August during the dry, dusty and hard packed conditions. The typical August weather allows the club to include many of the infamous hill climbs that go on for ever. Hosting the race in April presented David Durkee with significant challenges for laying out the courses. Remember the phase “April showers bring May flowers”? The youth courses were cut short and limited to a relatively flat section of the property. The Big bike course consisted of 8.2 miles of mixed terrain including existing trails as well as unused off camber sections. As it turned out, the sunny skies and dry conditions proved to the icing on the cake for the club and event participants. The PeeWee racers were presented with the challenge of previous year’s big bike ruts in the woods, but had the pleasure of wide

open grass fields leading them back to the home check. Premix Cobra rider, Jared Herbert, led the pack through the deep ruts and open field ditches. Lance Maschino, Injector winner, was able to maintain his speed throughout the event and stay on the lead lap with the faster PeeWee Premix riders. The Mini racers lined up facing a short 1.5 mile track which half of it included the fun grass field sections. Super mini riders Luke Chilman and Zach Dubois battled for the top spot until Chilman suffered a mechanical failure eliminating his chances of the win. The 85cc battle for the top spot between Mike Witkowski and Keagen Lee was intense enough to propel them past the front row Super mini riders. Unfortunately,

Lee suffered a late race front flat tire causing him to fade from Witkowski. 85cc racer, Jaden Smith, continued to charge resulting in a much deserved third place spot in the highly talented class. Vincent Smith landed his second dominating victory in a row in the 65cc class. Dawson Dunnuck failed to start at the drop of the flag landing him the last place spot heading into the woods. Dunnuck worked through the class making it to the second place spot at the end of the first lap. Unfortunately for Dunnuck, Smith’s smooth riding style allowed him to extend his lead throughout the race. Langdon Feltner held on for third. The big bike front row was stacked with talented riders looking for a victory. Johnny Robbins claimed the holeshot at the drop of the green flag. Due to the course layout, the riders were passed through the home check but not scored shortly after the start of the race. Robbins had maintained his lead up to the pass through, but dropped slightly off the pace by the end of the first complete lap. Heavy B rider, Taylor Day, slid out and was hurt during the first turn around the old barn.


Day was hit hard by a close following rider resulting in a ‘funny bone’ injury and severe tingling throughout his arm. The race consisted of five laps on the 8.2 mile course with Jake Fiddler leading each lap. John Maschino made a run at Fiddler late in the race, but fell short of closing the gap. At the end of the day, all participants and involved club members were delighted with the course, event, turnout and weather. Special thanks go out to David Durkee and his crew for providing a fun, yet challenging course on the hilly terrain just south of the Ohio River banks.

400 Plus at Hawkeye Downs Cedar Rapids, Iowa - April 10 By Michael Sierens

A

s the sun set and the lights went on in the stadium, the racers were anxiously getting ready for the first main events of the Hawkeye Downs season. The members of Cedar Valley Trail Riders put in countless hours, and created a totally redesigned track again this year. The temperatures dropped to a very comfortable 60 degrees, and the 400 plus entries were ready to hit the track. Kurt McCabe just edged out Chad Leidigh for the holeshot in the +25A race, with Yamaha mounted Reese Lauritzen and Nick Bass just behind. McCabe put his head down and quickly began to pull away from Leidigh and the rest of the pack. By the end of lap two, McCabe had a four second lead. Lauritzen cut a corner a little to sharp and got hung up on a tuff block allowing Bass to draw to within striking distance for third place. The two battled closely for the next two laps but Bass wasn’t able to find the speed to pass. Up front it was McCabe with a wire-to-wire win, his first of the season at Hawkeye Downs. Leidigh rode a strong race to finish second. Nikki Weis put her Honda out front in the +25B/C main event. She was quickly overtaken in the second turn by Rochelle Charnowski who was making her debut in the +25 class. Austin Krebill from Burlington, IA was a couple of bike lengths behind Charnowski in second place on the opening lap. Krebill made the pass through the whoop section putting Charnowski back to second at the end of the eventful lap. By the end of lap four, both Dustin Roskop and Troy Pflughaupt moved around Weis for third and fourth. Up front Krebill and Charnowski pulled away from the rest of the pack by the

midway point of the race. A great race for third developed on the final lap as Pflughaupt made his way around Roskop, beating him by a just a few feet at the finish line. One of the very competitive classes that normally has a ton of riders is Quad C Open. The first race of the year brought some new faces, and fifteen riders to the gate. Austin Voorhees put his quad first into turn one in front of a huge pack of riders. Behind Voorhees was Jason Collins on his Yamaha, Shawn Walker and Lucas Pfeller on his Suzuki. Voorhees quickly put some distance on second place Aaron Bunch and Collins. Clausen moved around Pfeller in the infield section for second. The

pack started to sort itself out by the end of the second lap, and the riders rode in single file for the next two laps. A great race back to the finish line for third place between Bunch and Pfeller with Bunch taking the last spot on the podium. Sean Taylor got a great jump off the gate and rocketed his Honda into the lead position in the Quad A Production main event. Sitting in second place was Dalton Hicks with Cameron Reimers third. Jesse Barnes with a poor start was back in fourth place on the opening lap. Taylor opened up a gap quickly while a great battle started between Hicks, Reimers and Barnes. Along the road, Reimers held on the gas a little longer and drove his quad into second to try to reel in the leader. Barnes finally made his way around Hicks

Tyrrell started to reel in the pack of riders battling for second place by moving into third and set his sights on Hanson. McCabe easily won the main event but the race on the track was for second. Ty Tyrrell and Hanson were sideby-side heading into the back section. Tyrrell shoved his bike into the inside and into second. The two continued to battle for the rest of the final lap but it was Tyrrell who managed to keep Hanson behind him.

Wallace, Kelsey perfect at Byron Opener Byron, Illinois - April 11 By Jennifer Kenyon Photos by Jennifer Scaia

M

otosports Park was full of familiar faces as it kicked off the outdoor racing season with excitement and anticipation, along with some new changes made to the facility. Owner Aaron Vincer states, “We have had a busy spring at MSP; with the help of the Kelsey and Ziesk families we were able to make some great changes to the park such as cutting down trees in the parking area and terracing parking spaces that are level and RV friendly”. Not only did they revamp the pit area, but they also did some extensive track work. Vincer adds, “We spent a lot of time changing the first turn; it’s much safer, flows really well and opens up more prime starting gate choices. We also changed

a few sections in front of the finish line area”. Jacob Kelsey proved to be the man to beat, sweeping both 14-24 and 250B classes. Kelsey said, “I like the (track) changes a lot”. In 250B moto one, Kelsey jetted off to an early lead and never looked back. Lukas Cobian was close behind Kelsey, and by the third lap they had pulled away from the rest of the pack. Cory Catalini got off to a slow start but fought his way back up, battling with Mason Flatness for the third position. Catalini grabbed the third spot, followed by Flatness and Ceithamer to round out the top five.

Nick Wallace won both motos in 85cc 9-11.

Cory Catalani had a good day finishing second in both 250B and Open B.

Moto two saw Flatness get off to a great start over Kelsey, followed by Catalini, and Cobian. It didn’t take long for Kelsey to make his way out front on his TZR Honda. Catalini and Cobian battled for the second spot heading to the woods, and Flatness dropped to the fourth position. On the last lap, Ceithamer got around Flatness in the back section for fourth. Kelsey went 1-1 for the overall, “Big thanks to Tom Zont Racing, Club 57, Barone Spinal Care and Performance, Fox, Scott, Gearne, Decal Works, EVS, MSP and Mom/Dad”. Nick Wallace was on top of his game all weekend, claiming two victories at Megacross the previous night, and an additional four the following day at Motosports Park. Wallace said, “It was really fun because they changed the track this year”. Wallace claimed the holeshot in both 85Jr motos and rode the wheels off his brand new KTM 85. Jono Mandelke gave Wallace some competition, showing his tire in the corners, but Mandelke couldn’t quite find a way around him. Suzuki rider Jarred Berggren rode a consistent third in both motos, giving him the third place overall. RJ Mackenzie pressured Berggren throughout moto one, putting in a solid fourth place ride. In the second moto, though, CYCLE USA, May 2010 15


Mackenzie didn’t get a good holeshot and battled through the back for a ninth place finish, giving him a seventh overall. Brandon Allen of Wisconsin edged out Jackson Jeffrey for the fourth place overall finishing with a 54. The +25 class was one of the most action-packed of the day. Chad Johnson grabbed the holeshot of moto one followed closely by Joe Roberts and Tim White. Johnson held off Roberts for the first two laps of the race, and then Roberts put the attack on Johnson by passing him coming out of the woods. There was some carnage going on between Johnson and Roberts coming into the new section before the finish, ultimately resulting in Roberts stalling his bike. Johnson began to pull away, with White in second and Roberts now in third. With one lap to go, Johnson went down in the back section, moving White into first, Johnson to second and Roberts keeping his third spot. Moto two brought some changes, as moto one winner Tim White had an unknown

DNS. Roberts grabbed the holeshot with Johnson hot on his tail, followed by Brian Kooistra, Ian Lindahl, and Adam White. Tension was high as Johnson and Roberts came out of the back section into the spectators’ view, Johnson bumping Robert’s real wheel in every corner. However, by the third lap Johnson had gone down in the back somewhere giving Roberts a nice cushion. “I had real bad arm pump at the end of the race. I missed the rut a bit and just went down”. Roberts went 3-1 for the overall, Johnson 2-2 for the second, and Kooistra with a 4-3 for the last podium spot. 250C was one of the biggest classes of the day with fifteen riders lined up on the gates. The first corner is always an interesting spot in C classes, and today was no exception. Connor Robinson had a quick jump off the gate, capturing the moto one holeshot until he washed out and took a couple of riders with him. It took Robinson a while to get his bike going again, allowing the rest of the pack to get away. Jeremy Barone took advantage

of the first turn carnage and rode his Kawasaki into the lead, followed by Yamaha riders Matt Hefel, Cody Gunnel, Travis Symmonds, and Austin Teer. It wasn’t long before Hefel put the pass on Barone and checked out. Symmonds went down somewhere in the back, moving Daniel Keefe and Teer into fourth and fifth. After some bad luck in the first moto, Logan Skaggs puts his Honda out front, grabbing the holeshot in moto two. Skaggs brought his A game for this one, checking out on the rest of the pack. Hefel and Barone kept close company with one another, with Robinson on the hunt. Robinson caught some more bad luck and went down once again, causing him to pull off shortly after. Barone, Keefe and Gunnel got after each other in hopes of claiming a podium finish, but Barone held strong to keep third. 16

CYCLE USA, May 2010

Hefel closed the gap and gave Skaggs a run for his money at the end, finishing a close second. Hefel got the overall with a 1-2, Barone kept consistent, awarding him with second overall, Gunnel taking third. Keefe also with consistency took the fourth spot with a 5-4. If you happened to be up at the concessions enjoying an infamous “Bear Burger”, you may have noticed a few guys riding behind the sign-up trailer. Well, they aren’t exactly pit riding. They’re actually taking part in a Club 57 MX riding school, offered by Motosports Park for riders who may choose to take the weekend off and work on improving their skills. Brad Jerominski, owner of Club 57 says, “Our schools offer a different lesson plan for every level of rider, creating goal specific obstacles based on individual riders’ needs”.

Annual D23 Banquet a Success Morton, Minnesota - December 5, 2009

J

ackpot Junction Hotel and Casino hosted the 2009 District 23 Awards Banquet. The over 400 riders and family in attendance were treated to a large banquet room, good meal and as usual a bevy of awards and prizes that Jim Nelson somehow managed to obtain in this tight economy. With the large number of awards that are handed out we used the same format as last year with the youth awards being given out in the afternoon prior to the meal. Attendance at the ceremony for the youth awards was high as was the energy level of our younger racers. It is worth the price of admission to see the sparkle in their eyes, and smiles on the faces of the kids as they receive their awards and picked out prizes. After a short happy hour and a good meal the evening presentation commenced. It started with the awarding of the new lifetime achievement awards. This award was instituted in 2009 in recognition of the Fortieth Anniversary of D23. There was a total of nine people that received the award including the founder of our organization. Criteria for the award included 30 years of continuous membership in D23, and 15 of those years spent working for the sport or on the board in some capacity. Dale Greenwald was the driving force that started D23 back in 1969. A member since that time, he still serves on the board of directors today as a congressman emeritus. Dale has been a district congressmen for well over 25 years now. In addition to organizing the district Dale is an accomplished enduro rider, and has worked more events over the years than most of us will ever be able to ride. Al Mathwig, another longstanding member of the district, goes almost as far back as Dale. Al has served as our congressman for over 25 years. The two have been a tireless and dedicated team promoting D23, off-road events, and motorcycling all of their adult lives. Al is also an accomplished racer, having earned a national number as professional Dirt track racer in the past. Al is one of the driving forces behind the Mora Enduro, which has been held for over 50 years. Barney Larson is another longstanding member, supporter, promoter of District 23 and off-road events along with motocross races at the Cambridge track. Most of us know Barney from his days as owner of Larson Cycle in Cambridge MN, he sold me my first competition bike back in ‘77. Like many

in the racing community, I have been going to Larsons ever since. Barney has supported and worked almost ever y Norsemen off-road event held in the last twenty years. In addition to working events supporting the district and the sport, Barney, Al and Dale have all been members of the Norsemen Motorcycle Club throughout the decades. Even

though retired, you will still find them at the events working behind the scenes to insure a fun time is had by all of us. Don Youngdahl was also honored as a lifetime member of ARMCA for his work in government relations for over two decades. Don was our first government relations officer and is responsible for setting up the system we have today. Don had the foresight to know we would need a lobbyist years ago. We have since been able to defeat some really harmful and foolish legislation that would have crippled our sport. Don spent more hours at the state capital and in DNR meetings than many

of us work in a week. He was tireless and exceptionally effective in his role as a government relations person. Dale Broughton was first a member on the district as an off-road rider back in the seventies. As his sons got older they took up racing and Dale turned into a full time mechanic for his boys. During most of those years he and his wife Karla have served on the board in some capacity. He is currently one of our off-road AMA congressmen. Chip Donaho has been a rider/ racer and pit dad since the seventies. He raced in his younger years and went on to pit for his son Pat, and work at many of the tracks in the district. He has been on the board for better than 20 years serving in many capacities, most currently that of MX vice chairman. He can still be found at the races today talking with our racers and giving advice. Scott Cripps in another worker that first joined the district as youth racer. That was in the seventies. You will find Scott and his entire family at any of our tracks along with son RJ and daughter Claire, both of them actively racing. Scott is an A level racer that won the +45 class in 2008, and he was also one of the five people to be awarded the Donny Schmit Sportsmanship Award. Scott helps at most of the tracks he goes to and has served on the board for over fifteen years. Continued on page 21 CYCLE USA, May 2010

Log Road Opens ‘10 with a bang Bronson, Michigan - April 3 By Bart Newman

T

he 2010 Great Lakes Motocross season opener brought nearly 300 entries to Log Road MX in hopes of kicking off the season with a win. In the mini ranks it was Jacob Williamson who led the season opener winning five of six motos on his way to overalls in the Super Mini, 85 9-13 and 85Sr. classes. In the 50ss class it was a battle up front between a couple of fast Hoosier riders as Kaden Parmley and Greg Stewart locked horns in a couple great motos on the Log Road MX little track. In the 85cc 9-13 class it was Team Green rider Mitchell Harrison that chased Williamson unsuccessfully in both motos as two of the top GLMX mini riders lined up for some early season drama. Williamson was the king of the holeshot and led both motos from the drop of the gate to the checkered flag. Harrison was second in both motos, well ahead of third place Hunter Burnham. Tristen Mcdonald (4-6) had a solid day as he and Tyler Jorgenson (7-5) both had a moto in the top five matching their day’s overall finish. Quads will run at all Log Road events in 2010, and it was speed and consistently that paid off in the Quad C class. Justin Vanarman was to strong for the field all day long winning both motos in the dry and wet conditions out running Dustin Dihle (2-2) and fellow podium pilot Jimmy Otis (3-3). In the 50ss motos it was Parmley who nailed the holeshot with Stewart, Clyde Miller, Jacob Bibler and Dagan Emert in tow. Parmley had great lines and his KTM was dialed in as he took the wins in both motos on his way to the overall. Stewart was way fast as well and locked down a pair of runner-up finishes. Miller (4-3) out-gunned Emert (3-5) in moto two to lock up the last spot on the podium while Bartley (6-4) was the last rider in the top five. The biggest class of the day was 250C with over thirty riders lined up on the gate for battle. Between the class size and Mother Nature’s antics with a strong down pour in between motos, the running order was as mixed up as Aunt Emily’s cake mix. In moto one it was Honda rider Jacob Miller (1-21) who grabbed the early lead and took the win. Second moto winner Tyler Grewe (5-1) found a grove in the rain, and stretched the throttle cable on his Kawasaki to take the second moto win which also lined him up for the day’s overall with a total score of six. Travis Winter (3-3) jumped up to the big bikes in 2010 and came out grabbing two thirds and second overall for his efforts. The final man on the podium was Elkhart’s own Mitchell 20

Highbaugh (6-2). Making up the balance of the top five was local ace Austin Morris (2-6) and Angola’s Scott Hantz (7-4) respectfully. The next event at Log Road comes to you on Memorial Day Weekend offering up two great days of racing with the Three Man team race of Saturday and round two of the Log Road “C” Class Shootout Series on Sunday where C riders will be guaranteed larger than normal trophies for the top ten.

After the award ceremony most of the recipients retired to the lounge for a very long session of bench racing among other things. This is were the facility as a choice for the awards really shined. It provided us a place to complete the evening while enjoying the company of the people we race with all season long. We all stayed up way too late and had way too much fun. It has been quite awhile since the awards banquet has been held at a venue that offers this much after banquet fun. I would like to thank all of our 2009 sponsors for stepping up to the plate and providing so many wonderful prizes to go with the hardearned awards for our racers. I would also like to thank Mark Becker for doing another great job in putting the event together. I would be remiss not to mention the efforts of Jim Nelson in getting the banquet book together, and in obtaining so many sponsorship prizes. These two men spend many hours making this the highlight of our racing season.

Kaden Parmley won the 50ss class.

D23 Banquet continued from page 19 John Martin needs no introduction to most of us. In the seventies and eighties he was a national level competitor in both enduro and hare scrambles, taking the National Hare Scrambles title in ‘85. He and his wife Greta bought Spring Creek MX Park in 1987 and they have worked extremely hard to improve the sport of MX. To say the Martins have raised the bar for quality of events and facilities in that time would be an understatement. They have also served on the board since 1988. Currently they can be found splitting their time between the track they run and keeping their two sons in bikes and racing. One at the pro level the other as a top amateur. Mike Quinn first joined the district in 1975 as a rider and member of a promoting club. He then went on to spend many years racing Hare Scrambles and Enduros. He is a member of the Golden Eagles MC club in Rochester and helped in the promotion of six National Hare Scrambles races in the eighties, along with many other events. He went back to MX in the mid nineties and can be found circulating many of

D23 Quad Opener at Motocity Staples, Minnesota - April 11 By Sally Anderson

Y

ou could feel the excitement in the air as the first quad race of season kicked off. It was great to see all the returning riders as well as the newcomers that came out to enjoy the day of racing hosted by the Kadlecs at Motocity Raceway. National rider Jeremy Tulenchik showed the crowd the ease of riding as he grabbed the podium wins in the Production 450A, Open A and Quad 16-24 classes. Mark Olejnichak, Mike Barnhart, Randy Larson and Travis Goor kept the crowds on the edge of their seats as they competed in the Production 450A class. These four riders had to be on their best game as each wanted the position the one in front of them held. It wasn’t an easy five laps to say the least. Both motos were fast paced with Olejnichak, Barnhart, Larson and Gorr making great passes in the corners and air in their battle to place in the top five. The newest class to the Quad motocross venue is the Girls Youth Sport. This class was developed to encourage youth girls ages 13-17 to compete in the series. With four riders on the starting gate and a close holeshot victory, rider Remington Guthman prevailed in both motos riding her Yamaha Raptor 250. Open A and Open B were large and provided plenty of excitement. The double drop proved to be interesting with a large pile up in the holeshot corner with the Open B riders. This didn’t discourage any of them from getting back out there and riding their machines to the fullest. Parker Wewerka was able to clinch the win with Jonathan Stumpf taking second, but not without a battle to the end. One of the crowd favorites is the 50cc class. These little riders, ages 4-8, 22

are simply amazing to watch. They take their racing just as serious as anyone else on the track. For them, the small bumps or ruts become hills and gullies, but this doesn’t stop them from showing all ages that it can be done if you put your mind to it. Isaac Teigen was the first to cross the finish line in moto-one with Alex Sleyster right behind, giving little room for any errors. Moto-two wasn’t so kind to Teigen who made it to the first corner first to then lead the race until the last lap when he had machine problems. This allowed Sleyster to make his move, take the lead and overall win for the day.

Full steam ahead for Northern Cup Tigerton, Wisconsin - April 24 By Pete Emme

W

ith nearly everyone being affected by the flailing economy, racing each weekend has been tough for Midwest families. Scott Biese of Fantasy Moto Off-Road Motorsports Promotions has taken huge steps to ensure racers and their families are taken care of for the 2010 racing season. Biese has rejuvenated the Northern Cup Motocross Series for 2010 with many announcements that include incentives from Fly Racing, AMSOil, many top manufacturer contingencies and most of all, good ‘ol fun. I had a chance to attend the 2009 Northern Cup awards ceremony which was held right at the track on a open ride day at Tigerton. Biese wanted to ensure that the participants in the 2009 series were rewarded for their efforts by handing out some nice prizes and awards. The top three finishers in each class were awarded Fly Racing jerseys, sized perfectly for each rider and Biese also had their name and number screened on the back. A nice gesture for sure. In addition, riders collected some nice bronze plaques and numerous awards were handed out during the day. Although it was quite chilly during the day, Tigerton also had open riding for anyone, FREE to 2009 Northern Cup card holders. For the 2010 season, there is no membership or fee required, and you can register online at north-

erncupmx.com or at any Northern Cup event. Probably the biggest reward for 2010 will be the Fly Racing program. Fly Racing announces the most aggressive contingency package to date. Get paid to race and receive $75 in practice/ racing coupons with the purchase of a 2010 set of gear of Fly Racing. Purchase your gear from a listed dealer and get 15% off. All participating racers will also receive contingency for each point earned in the 2010 Fantasy Moto run series. I got a chance to ask Biese what else was on tap for the 2010 season. “The biggest thing today was to recognize the riders from last season for their race efforts,” said Biese. “It took a while to put together and as you can see, I think the racers are happy with what we are doing for them. FantasyMoto put this all on for the riders, and with all the sponsors involved it really turned into a great thing. We have a few sponsors that are jumping on board for the 2010 season and they include AMSOil, Yamaha and Kawasaki contingency and especially Fly Racing.” In addition to the contingency programs, racers will have a chance to race in only 7 points races, making 5 to be eligible for season ending awards for registered riders. Tracks that are included in the 2010 series are The MotoZone at Tigerton and Wittenberg. They are only a few miles apart from each other. NAPA Auto Parts will ex-

tend a 20-40% discount to all Northern Cup members. Not from the area? No worries-they will deliver the parts right to the track for you. And AMSOil, they will pay contingency to three randomly selected places in each class at all events through August.

I know I will be attending FantasyMoto promoted races in 2010, not only because of what it has to offer, but knowing how good the tracks are, especially Tigerton. Good job to Biese stepping up for 2010 and best of luck to all the riders this season

Trials season kicks-off at Byron Byron, Illinois - March 28 By Kathy Haselton

I

t was a great start to the riding season for the riders of the Northern Illinois Trials Riders Organization (NITRO). During the weeks leading up to the first competition of the season, there was up to a foot of snow in the woods at Motosports Park in Byron, Illinois. This made set-up for the first Trials of the year challenging and difficult. Thankfully a burst of warmer weather melted the snow and allowed the ground to firm up nicely in time for the March 28th competition. The skies were clear and the temperature was perfect for a day of riding in the woods. Riders turned out in big numbers to shake off the rust from a long winter’s hibernation. There were forty-three riders, including eight first time riders. Some came from as far as Iowa and Wisconsin. Several riders confessed that this was their first time on their bikes since last fall. While many riders felt a little shaky at first, it didn’t take long for them to find their riding touch. The loop through the woods at Byron consisted of nine sections that posed a variety of challenges. There were hills to climb, rocks and logs to get over or around, and even a few sections riding through a creek. Each section Ray Pranskunas finished second in Intermediate.

was appropriately challenging for each class of riders that passed through. The Expert class was won by David Rohrschneider, followed closely by Mike Tinkham and Alain Vandewalle. Ralph Littlefield led a strong group of riders in the Sportsman class. Andrew Gore, Tony Meo, and Charlie Shanks also had strong days. The Advanced class had six riders testing the loop with Eric Cunningham coming out on top. Mike Brent and Dan Cotter rounded out the top three in the class. The Intermediate class had a large group of riders at seven. After all was done for the day, there was a tie for first place between Tim Pickett and Ray Pranskunas. Tim was the first place winner as a result of the tiebreaker, more cleans. Tim had twenty-two cleans while Ray had twenty-one. Sarah Pranskunas moved up from riding the Novice line to finish fifth. Luke Littlefield, who had ridden the novice line for the Youth last year also moved up and did an outstanding job of meeting the challenges. The Novice class had six riders, with five of them being new. This group also saw a tie at the end of the day between new riders Scott McKay and Mike Mauritz. Because they both scored a one, the tie-breaker was who “dabbed” first. With that, Scott was the winner and Mike came in second. Chris Key was a close third with only two points. There was some great riding in this group with all of the riders scoring eleven points or under for the three loops. The Senior class put on a fine display of riding from Alan Evans and Dan Maupin, with Alan coming out on top in points. Some great older bikes were put to the test in the Vintage class. This class was also one of the larger groups riding. The riders in the Vintage class rode the Intermediate line at each section. Brian Runyard came out on top in first place followed closely by Clark Runyard. Newcomer Scott Niewiadonski had a good day, coming in fifth. Jennifer Maupin didn’t let the winter rust show in the Women’s class. She picked up right were she left off as last year’s champion by riding a near perfect one through the nine sections. She was followed by Kathy Haselton and Patti Meo. It is always great to have

the younger riders at any NITRO event. Ryan Rohrschneider finished first with new rider Elliot Key coming in second. Mitchell Littlefield had some mechanical difficulties with his bike, learning that electric motorcycles and creeks don’t always go well together. NITRO is looking forward to an awesome riding season. There are competitions throughout the spring and summer at some of the most beautiful areas to ride in Illinois. New riders are always welcome.

Hangtime MX Area Qualifier Akron, Indiana - March 27/ 28 By Bobby Elkins Photos by Phyllis Blume

A

new first in Reads Racing history came on Saturday when practice was then cancelled almost as soon as it had begun. The early morning temperatures were freezing, making any small chunk of clay as hard as granite making the surface more of a obstacle course than the groomed race track. The Reads Staff immediately recognized something wasn't right and a quick decision was made to wait one hour for temperatures to rise before they would let 'em loose again. It was a key decision which went a long way in helping provide a fantastic track to race for the very early area qualifier. The track ended up being a real treat for those prepared to ride plastic to plastic. I think Saturday’s adrenaline junkies had the best surface for racing that I've seen at Hangtime. That's what comes when you have a family of racers who playing with bikes and tractors and dozers for over a quarter of a century. A marvelous job - well done! The first race on Saturday was the twenty-four rider 250B Stock class. For a moment it looked like Theodore Pauli was going to grab the holeshot, but Kyle Biggins of Spencerville, IN slung around the outside to begin the race. At the second corner the entire pack got bunched up. There were just too many riders all wanting for the same lines IL’s Theodore Pauli won both the 250B and 450B Stock classes on Saturday.

Allen Kirkpatrick survived Sunday’s mud and rain to win +45.

which caused a pile up. Biggins would suffer the worst, and stay planted there until the race went around him. Pauli struggled to get out of the mess quickly, but it was Logan Pfleiderer from OH who got away with the lead. Pauli

didn't wait long before he was breathing down Pfleiderer's neck though. This moto was jammed with passes everywhere in the pack. Soon Pfleiderer fell victim to Pauli who had established himself in second in front of Sam Miller. As the moto kept developing, it was clear Pauli rides hard, and that second was not an option. Josh Philbrick was on the move too. He got around Miller sending him back to fourth. Then Miller began gettin' pressure from Carter Luck of PA, and eventually let him go to finish fifth. Pauli went on to win both motos ahead of Pfleiderer. Miller got his mind set early in the second outing and finished third in moto two for third overall. Great ride Sammy! Race two was a combined 250C Stock and Women 14+. Chad Kelly of SC grabbed the holeshot. Indiana born Caleb Warner, riding out of his new digs in Kingsville, MO chose a smart line to start second. Niko Giancana of MI took the outside and started behind Warner. As they came past me for the first time headed for the 120' tabletop, it was still Kelly with a lead and then a fearless Warner who went real big. This was gonna be good. Then disaster struck Niko Giancana as he landed on the front tire and went down, ending his day. Jacob Wisnieski was bar to bar with Logan Dubbs. Dubbs had seen enough nonsense, and went after Warner. Warner had to act soon, and after three laps of trying, he got around Kelly. Then it was Dubbs turn, and CYCLE USA, May 2010

he found his way around Kelly next. Dubbs kept the turbines to speed and got around Warner at the end. Warner second, Wisnieski third and then Kelly and Pressler? Pressler, who's,.... what the,... you've got to be kiddin' me. Cady "The Lady" Pressler riding out of Columbia City, IN started the race on the second gate drop, smoked her competition and then raced thru nineteen riders to finish the moto fifth overall with the 250C riders. Dubb'zee did go 1-1, Warner 2-3 for second overall. Kelly went 4-2 for third and Wisnieski went 3-4 for fourth. At halftime I was near sign-up when I overheard some of the 250C iders talking. They were chatting and poking fun at each other and about how some dudes had been passed by a girl in their moto. One rider laughed at his friend and said "I ain't gettin' passed by a girl!". His buddy laughed at him and said "Fool, she beat you too. "#64 on the Suzuki, yeah that was her!". She finished fifth overall from a double-drop. The fact is she passed that scoffer twice. She finished up 1-1 by the widest of margins. Another great race was the sixth group on the track. In race six the School Boy One (12-16) B/C, Dakota Robins of Denver, Indiana grabbed the holeshot while Aaron Plessinger of Hamilton, OH and Cameron Reas of IN did their best to catch him. When the race began I thought Robins was in trouble. Plessinger and Reas were both fast and they were working on him hard. As I mentoned earlier, the track was 30 feet wide everywhere. You couldn't slow them down. They were both working as hard as I've ever seen, and keeping with right with Robins but

unable to show him a wheel. Both Plessinger and Reas were both riding over their head and a bit out of control, but making it huge fun for spectators. the Plessinger and Reas stayed directly behind him for five laps. As hard as they tried, both did finish up less than one second behind him at the checkers. I got a chance to speak with Robins at intermission and he said he knew they were both right there. "I just rode as fast as I could!". Robins did mention that if he could holeshot moto two, he may have a chance to win again. He wasn't sure! In moto two, once again all they could do was stay with him and repeat the same exciting race. Robins snagged the lead and never looked back. I finally found the words to describe Robins' style and how to explain it.... balanced while using it all. That's it! He's just that good! The other changes from moto one to two was that Plessinger and Reas reversed positions at the stripe while once again being right there. Robins also went out in the Super Mini 1 (1215) and scored another 1-1, with a bit more space between his competition. Day two of the qualifier weekend - Sunday, was more of a mud wrestling contest than a race. Reads immediately went to work on the track after the racing Saturday, knowing every moment mattered. With nasty weather moving in, they prepared the surface for Sunday and parked the equipment like they were ready to clear snow off a

Logan Dubbs took the big win in the 250C Stock class.

Dakota Robbins continued his great riding to win SchoolBoy 1 and SuperMini.

runway and waited. Another key decision was made to run them from the gate to the flag and calling it a race for all of them. One lap, and how you finished after one was how you did. The Reads were awfully disappointed and it seemed they were more so than the riders. It was a great qualifier for many riders who race Reads events. Giving them a qualifier on Reads Racing soil annually means so much to so many of them. Probably why Caleb Warner drove nine hours to come and qualify here when he could have easily done the same in Missouri. These are special events and mean so much to the families who will remember this race for the rest of their lives. I know I will.

Kellogg’s Perfect Start for 2010 Kellogg, Minnesota - April 11 By Michael Anderson

K

ellogg hosted the 2010 motocross opener with not only great weather, but also a lot of great racing. Motokazie’s Lee and Jamie Theis and the crew put together a great track, and flawless first race of the year. Motokazie took over running races at Kellogg at the start of 2009, and everything has been improving ever since. Lee and his crew hold a lot of races every year at different locations around the Midwest, and the experience shows. This all said, a few things haven’t changed at the Kellogg track. The dirty dozen is still in the same place it was in the 70s. The 1976 Yamaha YZ125 is still hanging from the pole as you enter the driveway. I know it’s been there since 1981 when I first raced the track. My first race at this great track was a mud fest. Back then they didn’t cancel races too often. You raced at least one moto no mater what the conditions were. This race took its toll on the 125C class. Most racers didn’t finish three laps. There were bikes with blown motors or fried clutches everywhere. I pulled into the pits to quit. Changed my mind, went back out and still took third place out of twenty-five racers. It was that bad. The Kellogg race was also the first time I was in a magazine, Cycle USA. Times sure have changed in what conditions we are willing to ride in.... good thing, nothing like that was at all an issue or consideration this weekend. Added Labor Day weekend 2009 was the Kong jump. This is the safest 120ft fly away jump I have ever seen. There were just a few riders who cleared the 100’ mark and came real close to 120’. One of them being Joe Perron who landed between 100 and the 120 ft mark on every launch. The morning started off with Lean Rymes singing the National Anthem so crisp and clear you would have thought she was in

a recording studio. Then the gate dropped for the Open C class. The first holeshot of the season went to #461 Shane Page of LeSueur, MN. Page finished the day fifth with a 3-5 moto finish. Pretty good way to start the year... but he will most likely remember the fact that he grabbed the first holeshot of the new season. The Open C class win went to Iowa’s Jimmy Heidebrink (2-3). Both Chris Vogel (1-4) and John Weir (5-1) grabbed moto wins, but neither were able to beat Heidebrink’s two moto results. One of the most competitive classes of the day was the 85cc 912 age group. The first Alex Ingalls finished second in 65cc 7-11. moto holeshot went to #110 Tyler Willing of son pulled the holeshot with Steinle not far Menomonee Falls, WI. Nick Schnagl of MN behind. Thompson held Steinle off for two didn’t fare so well around the first corner but laps before letting him slip by for the lead. worked hard every lap to take over the lead After that Steinle pulled away for the win. with one lap to go. Same Wise from Ramsey, Steinle was the only old guy well over 45 MN finished third. Moto two mixed things years of age clearing the 100ft mark on the up. This time Willing held the lead all the way Kong jump almost every lap. to the end for the win and overall. Schnagl Moto two didn’t go as well for Steinle. had more trouble working through the pack Making more than one mistake. Steinle let this time, finishing a strong third for second Thompson take the win and the overall. Brad overall with Sam Wise finishing moto two in Cunningham of Hastings, MN rode two solid second for third overall. You’ll see more of motos for third overall. The high flying Seinle these three as they get older, move up to larger did take two moto wins in the +45A class. bikes and race faster classes. Next up was the 65cc 7-9 class. #233 The races went from the young guns to Josh Boaz, #40 Peirce Knight and #264 the old greasers.

ing like Knight would take the moto win, but somewhere in the back section Knight messed up in a corner and let Boaz back by for the win. Peirce took second and Griffin finished third.

Moto two started out better for Knight as he pulled the holeshot and led for a lap. Knight had a bit to much speed heading into the woop section, cased his bike on a woop, went over the bars. He shook himself off, started his bike and raced from 17th to 7th. Boaz ran away with the moto and overall as Griffin finished second. Seth Carpenter raced consistent all day for third overall. There were many great races this Sunday. A fewe of the other racers needing to be noted for strong rides were #501 Jackson Exner of Red Wing. His winter racing paid off with two moto wins in the 14-24C class. #709 Joe Perron was one of the fastest, if not fastest racers of the day. Joe took the overall win in the Open A class. #525 Jared An-

Muddy Waters Season Opener East Moline, Illinois - May 11 By Jordyn Minnaert

Chad Rogers finished second in the +25 class.

M

uddy Waters Motorsports Park held their opener for the 2010 race season May 11th. It all came together on a beautiful morning with fans and riders waking up early for a fun day of racing highlighted by strong competition in a number of classes. With summer just around the corner, this was a wonderful chance to start honing those skills and get ready for another full season. The first +25 start was a real eye opener with Lucas Smith (#38) grabbing the holeshot. Smith kept the lead as Greg Braet, on a new KTM held second with Chad Rogers in third. After approaching the back section of the track, Braet got

around Smith for the lead as Rogers was still charging hard in third. The battle quickly begun for second half way through the opening lap. Before the finish, Rogers went down, but did manage to get back up after dropping back a few positions. Flying high over the downhill quad jump, Braet led as Smith followed, along with Jeff Patel now in third. Braet had a substantial lead by the finish of the next lap as Rogers already up and pushing for third place. With the right moment to pass, Rogers made his move getting back to where he was before the mistake. The last two laps of the moto had Braet extending his lead while Smith and Rogers held their positions. Braet grabbed the second moto holeshot and kept the lead to the end. Smith and Rogers found themselves behind Braet when coming over the double double. Charging hard in the back section, Smith took a tumble to the dirt. When the checkered flag

waved, the riders positions stayed the same. As the gates drop for the Open B class in the first moto, Mark Seeforth struck into the lead. Rushing fast to the back section of the track, Travis Ruchti made his way to the lead. As Seeforth fell back to third place, Ryan Verachtert took over second. The heat rolls on as the race continues. Fans stayed on their toes as Ruchti and Verachtert fought for the lead. Following close behind in third, Levi Kipp made a needed pass to get around Seeforth in the second lap. The third lap had fierce anticipation coming its way. The battle had begun again as Ruchti and Verachtert were charging for the lead. Verachtert closed in on Ruchti. Within the next few seconds, the race had a new leader. The competition of the Open B class was over. Through the last laps of the moto, Verachtert held the first place spot, Ruchti second, and Kipp finished in third place. The second moto gate dropped with rider after rider plunging towards the first corner, as Verachtert took the holeshot to shoot over the downhill quad. Ruchti was second with Suzuki rider Dakota Cox trying to make CYCLE USA, May 2010

his way through the pack. The next two laps of this moto, you could see riders pacing themselves around berms and over doubles, waiting for the final laps to make any big moves. As the white flag came out, Cox got side by side with Kipp. As the moto really heated up, Cox was pushing himself to hold third. Kipp went for a great pass in the back straight away section, taking a slight edge for third. When the checkered flag waved, Verachtert was still our leader ahead of Ruchti. Kipp and Cox were still tire to tire, and surely enough, Kipp still held the number three spot. It was a great day for racing, and a very good season opener. As the season really kicks into high gear, we should see a lot more intense racing as everyone looks to make the most of yet another fun filled motocross season.

Stoney opens 25th season Columbus, Indiana - April 18 By David Dunnuck Photos by Cheryl Dunnuck

S

toney Lonesome MC held their first Championship Hare scramble Series 25 years ago. Many old timers recall the famous power line starts were there was no class separation. All riders lined up together and the statement of “run what you Brung” prevailed. There have been many changes in AMA Hare Scramble racing since that time, but one thing remains the same – Stoney can bring extreme thrill and anguish all within a single lap around the property. As most D15 Hare Scramble racers know, an April race at Stoney is going to be muddy and challenging at the very least. This year proved to be the exact opposite. Limited rain fall, sunny skies and a slight breeze throughout the week leading up to the first round of the 25th anniversary series resulted in perfect track conditions with the exception of some slight dust in areas. Premix racer, Hunter Huser opened the event with an impressive win in the morning PeeWee race. The PeeWee track consisted of a typical three minute lap time allowing the kids at least ten laps around the course. Their course presented riders with good single track, wide open cross over sections and rolling ridge and valley transitions. Huser moved up to a Pro Senior KTM this year

which proved to be a good move. Huser put on an impressive show completing thirteen laps, one more than second place rider, Camden Feltner. Lance Maschino continued his D15 Injector class win streak to three with his victory. The Mini race was loaded with 45 riders heading into the 2.6 mile course. The Super Mini class was loaded with talented racers from all over the state of Indiana. Luke Chilman jumped out to a significant lead after one lap only to be delayed with carburetor issues. While the issues were quickly resolved, the delay prevented Chilman from landing his first victory of the year. Tyler Vore was ready and waiting to step into the top spot of the Mini race following Chilman’s delay. 85cc riders, Michael Witkowski and Keagen Lee, once again ran wheel to wheel for the majority of the race.

Hofmaster, Six Score Big Mendota, Illinois - April 10 By Jennifer Kenyon Photos by Jennifer Sacia

R

iders making up more than 300 entries gathered in Mendota, Illinois, for round one of the Megacross Shootout Series. A little rain and snow early in the early made no difference in track conditions as the wind was blowing strong enough to allow for additional water to go down just before practice. The first Megacross of the year, or “M1” as it has been popularly deemed, is the most highly anticipated race of the season. Whether riders relocated down south or became a regular an indoor facility, this is where they get to finally showcase the hard work put in over the winter months, this is judgment day. It’s not unusual to see some of the fastest A riders in the Midwest line the Megacross gates, with two things on their mind: pride and cash. Riders like Hofmaster, Poulter, Six, Markwardt, Kelly and Whitney have owned the A class for years, but is it time for the new generation to step up? Seventeen year old rookie Maxx Malatia, riding only his third A race ever, has proven that these veterans are in for an awakening this season with a stellar ride in Open A, finishing an impressive third

Tommy Hofmaster won both +25A and Open A.

place behind Hofmaster and Poulter. “It’s just an honor to be riding out there with these guys, I remember being on 65s and watching them ride, never thinking one day I’d be out there with them” Maxx modestly says. The rookie grabbed the holeshot in the Open A main event aboard his DGY/4PR/No Fear Kawasaki, with Kelly and Hofmaster on his tail. Hofmaster quickly got around Kelly and began chasing down Malatia, finally making a clean pass on lap three and securing the lead. Poulter didn’t get a very good holeshot but moved his way up, really putting the pressure on Kelly for third. Poulter made the pass on Kelly, setting his sights on Malatia. On the last lap, Poulter 40

CYCLE USA, May 2010

made the pass and held strong for the second place finish. Behind Kelly was a battle for fifth between Scott Zont and Markwardt, where Zont edged out Markwardt at the end. Another A class rookie, Daniel Sanders, jumped out front with the holeshot in the 250A main event followed closely by Zont and Hofmaster. Zont wasted no time getting out front and created a good sized gap for himself. Not long after Hofmaster passed Sanders, he lost traction and slid out in the corner and Six rolled past to capture the second spot. By this time Zont had pretty much checked out into his own race… that is until he tipped over in the corner after the whoops. Zont explained, “After about three laps Tommy slid out and that gave me a bunch of room to relax, but I got a little crazy with the front brake and just lost the front end”. Patience is a virtue and TZR/Decal Works rider Jonny Six was the prime example as he waited and capitalized on both Hofmaster and Zont’s mistakes. “After a fourth place start I worked my way past Sanders and then Tommy went down giving me second. The next lap Zont went down and I took home the win from there” Six said. Tough luck for Zont at the end of the moto, he’d like to thank his family, Club57mx, Decal Works, Barone Spinal Care and Performance, Williams Motowerx, EVS, AGV, One Shot Productions and FMF.


KTM rider Logan Skaggs put in a successful night with a first place finish in 85Sr and second place finishes in 250C and Super Mini. Skaggs won his heat race in 85Sr, placing a target on his back for the main event. However, the pressure didn’t get to Skaggs as he grabbed the holeshot over Kawi rider Alex Nagy who beat Skaggs in the Super Mini class just a few races before. Behind Nagy was another Kawi rider Jordan Mackiewicz, followed by Joey Fortune and Brian Krohn battling it out for the third place position. Skaggs and Nagy pulled away from the rest of the pack, securing first and second. Mackiewicz fought hard for the final podium position, while Fortune captured fourth and Krohn rounded off the top five. NXS/EVS/Norstar/Ki Tracks sponsored rider Nick Wallace got the holeshot in the 85Jr main event, followed closely by Dylan Boyd aboard his Kawasaki. Cody Barnes was in the mix for a few laps until Troy Mead made the pass for third. Wallace and Boyd got tight in some of the corners, but Wallace came out on top. Wallace said, “The race was fun, I got the holeshot and battled with Dylan (Boyd) the whole time”. Barnes held onto a strong fourth place finish while Noah Taylor claimed fifth after a rough twelfth place finish in the heat race. 250B was one of the larger classes of the night with twenty-two riders signed up. Moto one winner Reese Miller took a hard fall in a previous race, causing him to have to sit out for the rest of his main events for the night. Tough luck for Miller, but a prime opportunity for the rest of the riders because Miller had previously swept all three of the B

class/14-24 heat races. Cory Catalani grabbed the holeshot in the 250B main, followed by Kawi rider Stephen Stocklen and the Yamaha of Zack Scott. Catalani immediately created a gap on the rest of the pack while Stocklen and Scott went back and forth for second. Abraham closed in on the action of Stocklen and Scott and it came down to the last corner. All three riders could have claimed second place at this point, but Stocklen refused to let that happen. Scott grabs a spot on the podium, while Abraham takes fourth, and Kyler Hyde rounded out the top five.

Riders come out swinging at RedBud Buchanan, Michigan - April 10 By Bart Newman

R

edBud MX is a special place to many and the 2010 season opening weekend was a special treat as riders from five states and Canada made the trek for some early season racing. The 250B class was loaded Saturday with talent as thirty-four riders lined the gate to do battle. In the end it was Nick Velie who came out on top with a pair of wins on the way to the day’s 250B overall. In the first 250B moto it was a hard charging Ed Halper that pulled the pack around turn one as Michael Kluga, Tyler Burdin, Ryan Hastings and Will Reader gave chase. Velie didn’t get the start he wanted but a never quit riding style and some good luck had his YZ250 moving forward. Burdin came around lap one in first place but bad luck dropped him from contention lining up Velie, Austin Wagner and Dakota Blakeney to fight for the win. Velie is blue collar all the way and wore down his fellow competitors grabbing the win. Wagner was the runner up holding off Blakeney. Reader was fourth but not by much as Rui Azevedo and Marshall Weltin fought over the last spot in the top five. Velie (1-1) got a better start in moto two allowing him to plow through for another win stealing of the day’s overall in the process. Blakeney (3-2) kept Velie honest, bettering his first moto score by one which was good for second overall, while Reader (4-3) nabbed the last step of the podium out riding Travis Richards (12-4) and Weltin (6-5). In Vet class action it was Scott Kirkpatrick who dominated the +40 racing, coming out of semi-retirement to give it another go. Kirkpatrick (1-1) led both motos as soon as the gate hit the dirt, and then never looked back. Rob Talbott (2-2) was the runner-up bettering Robert Kedik (3-3) who rounded out the top three.

MC Motopark Area Qualifier Mount Carroll, Illinois - April 17/18

T

he opening event of the 2010 season for Mount Carroll’s MC Motopark was destined to be an exciting race. Good weather, most of the racers already had a chance to get a few events in, getting rid of the winter rust, and maybe the biggest factor, this was a qualifier for the Amateur Nationals. Two days of racing with riders from eight states, and couple from Canada. One of the first classes to hit the well prepped track on Sunday was Shoolboy 2 B/C. Yamaha rider Brandon Pope pulled the early lead with Michigan’s Timmy Badour looking for a way around. Early in the first lap Badour pulled next to Pope as they hit the next three corners side by side before Pope could pull away again. Pope then made a costly mistake. Sliding over a berm, he found the edge of one of the few ponds at the track. He kept the bike dry, but lost almost a full lap getting help to re-start the race. Badour took over out front, but coming from fourth on his KTM, Jarrett Pesci grabbed the lead in the third lap and went away for the win. Minnesota’s Ryan Fetzer ran well for third, just ahead of Iowa’s Cody Breeden. Pesci proved to be the real deal in the second moto, as he took yet another win. Pope worked to redeem himself, and finished second. Badour fought all moto to move up, first getting around Breeden, then going after Fetzer to no avail. Badour ended in second overall ahead of Fetzer and Breeden. In the 450C class first moto, IL’s Rick Nichol was on fire. Pulling a holeshot, and then leading every lap, Nichol left room for no one to consider anything but a runner-up position. Dalton Abbott started the moto in second, but lost a lot of time in one of the deep corners, dropping to fifth in the first lap. From there, he was on a mission. Adam Petnuck fell back, and Randy Mclaughlin found himself in second, with Abbott all over his rear wheel as they started the third lap. Abbott quickly slipped by to keep pace with the leader, but a ways behind. Also coming up through the pack was Nicholas Inman, climbing to third by the last lap as Luke Shafer made a late pass on Mclaughlin for fourth. Nichol ran out front with Abbott in second the entire second moto, but was bumped back to fourth after the moto by the officials... still netting second overall. Abbott went 2-2 for the overall. Inman once again climbed his way past riders, included a last lap pass on Stiles and Bainter for third in the moto and overall. Always fun, and exciting to see on the track, the 250B Modified class had twenty riders representing six states, and plenty of

potential winners. Off the start, and through the first half a lap the riders were three wide taking full advantage of the track width to try and move up. Eventually Honda rider Jacob Kelsey found clear sailing in the lead with Michael Bugg and Joseph Dalzell sliding past Zach Scott and Travis Ruchti for second and third, just behind Kelsey. By the third lap everyone was just as tight, and Dalzell had moved up to second. Pope was fighting hard to advance as well, and in the final lap he passed Ruchti for fourth to finish behind Bugg as Kelsey kept a safe lead for the win. Nick Neys finished fifth. Dalzell owned the second moto as Kelsey had a harder time climbing his way out of a fifth place start. Ryan Fetzer ran strong in second the first half of the moto while taking every move Pope and Kelsey tried to put on him. Going into the third lap, Kelsey made a pass in the long back section on Pope, and then quickly got around Fetzer for second. Pope took a while, but also moved up before the moto ended. Kelsey finished second overall ahead of Pope. Overall winner FMF/ Rock River/ Factory Connection/ Thor backed Dalzell, “This weekend the track has had a variety of conditions and I’ve had a good run so far. I put in a lot of work this winter to stay in shape. I want to run Ponca and some of the other nationals this year. We’re here to get to Loretta’s just like many others and then I hope to have a good season”. If his performance was any indication of the rest of his season, he is surely off to a good start. Minnesota’s Henry Miller came out of the first turn in second behind Iowa’s Travis Prier in the thirteen-rider 85cc 12-14 Mod class. Miller went right after Prier and made a pass stick in the third corner to take over the lead. Keenan Tinkey was in third early, but succumbed to the pace of Jacob Vaness and then Koby Conrad. Miller set a blistering pace out front and went untouched through the rest of the moto. By the third lap Michigan’s Conrad was up to second and pulling a little lead over Vaness who was dealing with Prier. Vaness never got a break, but held on for third as Jordan Mackiewicz eventually worked up to fifth behind Prier. 46

and went for it. I think I was making up time in some of the corners. The track is pretty nice and the hills and everything is kind of like Millville, with different dirt.” Miller made his pass and led the last lap for the overall. Conrad finished second while Vaness and Prier went 3-4. When the 250A Pro Sport class hit the track, the pits were pretty much empty as everyone expected a great race, and lined the fence for a good view. The first moto was dominated by Illinois riders with Scott Zont leading the way on his Honda. Jonathan Six slid into second around the third turn and Ty Tyrell was third. Iowa’s Luke Peters was fourth with Louisiana’s Caleb Bertrand forcing his way to fifth. While the top three stayed almost tire to tire for the first four laps, positions stayed the same. Tyrrell got the best of Six at one point on the up hill jump, but shortly after Six closed the door moving back into second. As the last lap began everything changed as Bertrand moved up to fourth. Out of sight, Zont had fallen back to second and Six took the moto win after one of the closest races of the day. In the second moto, Six led from start to finish. Six after the moto, “It has been a good day having gotten two moto wins. I had to work my way up in the first one. This time I was out front and just rode smooth. At the end I could tell someone was closing on me Nick Neys going to but I still got the checkered. The track got third overall in 450B Mod. pretty rough for this moto and I liked the ruts that developed”. Scott Zont ran in second ahead of Tyrrell all the way to the final laps before Bertrand worked up from fourth. Once in second, Bertrand ran down some of the gap Six had built before the moto ended. Decal Works/Tom Zont backed Six spent the winter in Texas, and has been on a roll ever since getting back. He scored wins at Mendota the week before, and another pair of moto wins yesterday at the first day of LL qualifying. Bertrand definitely had his groove working in the 450A Pro Sport class as he worked his way to the front to win both motos. Tyrrell put in another set of great rides (3-2) to finish an impressive second overall in the stacked class. Justin Kelly (2-4), Tommy Hofmaster (4-3) and Billy Larsen (6-5) rounded out the top five. The Collegeboy (17-24) class overall ended up in the hands of Michigan rider Michale Bugg. Joseph Dalzell rode very well in the first moto to lead from start to finish, ahead of Bugg all the way. Jacob Henry Miller was fast in Kelsey worked his way up to third by

Miller took the second moto win, but it wasn’t as clean cut as the first moto. Conrad gave him a run for the first couple laps. Miller, “I started on the outside and they just pushed me out.

mid moto, leaving Travis Ruchti and Cody Breeden entangled in quite the battle. Breeden was all over Ruchti in the final laps, and just before the finish it became too much, and Ruchti dropped his bike in a corner, just long enough lose a spot and finish fifth. In the second moto, Dalzell ran into problems and rode around a lap down to just finish and hope for an overall that would get him a spot at the regional. Bugg didn’t mind having an open track, and took the win for the overall while Kelsey finished second ahead of Breeden and Ruchti. Brandon Brill finished the moto in fifth on his Honda. Kelsey made the jump to Hondas this season, and said he really likes the bikes. Decal Works/ Fox/ Scott supported Kelsey, “I got really bad starts today and had to work my way up through the riders every time. The track was really good though, and had a lot of passing lines, and it was rough so that helped. Tom Zont has my suspension really set up right, so the bike was working great. I just need to get my starts down so I can get up with those guys right from the beginning.” Layton Jones won +40 and +35, sweeping all four motos.

Bugg also went 1-1 for the overall in the 450B Modified class ahead of Kelsey and Kawasaki rider Nick Neys. Layton Jones is back and racing in the Vet classes, and took home four moto wins today on his way to the overalls in both +40 and +35. Jones, “I haven’t raced since Loretta’s in ‘06, and I just turned forty last fall so this is my year to go back to the national. I’m trying to get myself back into shape. Just want to ride smooth and have a good time. If I make it to the national great, if not I’m having a lot of fun any way. I’ve been riding, but just getting back to racing. The track was awesome, and if you pick your lines you can really get around out there. The insides got real rough, but there’s super smooth and fast lines on the outsides.

Fratzke, Medek Rule grantsburg Grantsburg, Wisconsin - April 11 By Bob Chase Photos courtesy of WholeShotMX

Dan Holmes was second overall in 14-24A and third in Open A.

T

he District 23 motocross season opened up in the deep sand of Grantsburg Motocross Park. Sheldon Fratzke and Bill Medek proved to be ready for the season start, both taking wins in competitive A classes. Weather more often associated with May or June greeted the over 200 entries that showed up to take on the whoop-filled playground. The promoting Straight Arrow Enduro Riders club was still mourning the loss of long-time member Ross Thompson, who passed away unexpectedly last July at the age of 39. The club had stickers made with his familiar 66 on it, and made them available to his family members that were attending the event, and to anyone else that wanted something to remember him by. District 23 had earlier declared the champion of the 125cc class to be given an award in his honor. Ross was running strong in the class’ inaugural season at the time of his passing. The unusually warm spring this year allowed the club to hold their late-March Sand Blast event in decent weather two weeks earlier, but also left the track dry enough to necessitate quite a bit or watering during the days leading to the event. Their efforts, and the 60-degree day, resulted in ideal conditions for the race. The first premier class on the docket was Open A. In moto one Cody Thomsen and Dan Holmes were running one-two early on, until Holmes went down on lap two. By the fourth of seven laps, Josh Patzoldt had worked his way into the lead, followed by Medek. Though Medek got close a few times, the order remained unchanged to the finish. They were followed by Cody Breitbach, Holmes, and Korey Beach. Tackling a much rougher track in the second moto, Holmes took the early lead and never looked back, taking the win. Medek was again second, his hard-charging pair of seconds giving him the overall. He was followed by Patzoldt (1-3), Holmes (41), Breitbach (3-4), and Beach (5-5). Medek again fought with Patzoldt in the +30A class, as the two traded moto wins. Medek’s 1-2 topped Patzoldt’s 4-1 score. Fratzke led all laps of both +25A motos, except in moto one when another Grantsburg regular, Rick Amatuzio, rode out front for the first lap. The top five finishers 50 CYCLE USA, May 2010

all finished both motos in the same position. After Fratzke, it was Kyle Love, Michael Mikrot, new A rider, Chas Kadlec, and quite a bit past 25, Norman Miesen. Since Medek elected to ride only three classes on this day, skipping +25, he only faced off against Fratzke in 250A. Both riders elected to take advantage of the rule change that was made last year and rode two-strokes; Medek on a Yamaha and Fratzke on a Suzuki. They did not get much of chance to battle, as Fratzke had the better starts and ran out front both motos. Medek had to fight from quite a ways back to get to second in the first moto, but stayed close to Fratzke with a better start in moto two. The rest of the top five also finished both motos the same. The overall was Fratzke, Medek, Breitbach, Nathan Rosso, and Mikrot.

Other double class winners included Noah McPherson, who topped 85cc 9-11 and 9-12 (it’s a long story why there are 2 similar classes), defending Ross Thompson memorial winner, Shane Rhode, who won 125cc and Schoolboy, Tanner Anderson showing good form in sweeping 250C and 14-24C, and club member and part-time Brazilian, Craig Cherrington, who rode to victory in +40B and +45. This was the only race scheduled for the track in 2010. The club now turns their efforts towards the July 11th Stone Lake Hare Scrambles and the August enduro.

Race one for the Hoosier Hilltoppers Seymour, Indiana - April 18 By Don Browning

B

oth club members and the riders wondered what kind of day this was going to be after the temperatures dropped into the 30 degree area Saturday night, but by 8am we were greeted with perfect weather to open Hoosier Hilltoppers thirty-ninth year of racing. The members of Hoosier Hilltoppers did some minor tweaking of the race track over the winter by widening and re-facing all the major jumps. They even added a couple of step-up jumps. A large majority of the riders liked the improvements and by the end of the day a lot of positive comments came from the riders. After a brief rider’s meeting, twelve 250C riders lined up for the first moto. With the drop of the gate four riders contested into the first turn and by the second turn Shane Schroughan from Trafalgar, Indiana had moved his Kawasaki to the front followed closely by Honda rider Kyle Richardson, and Jason Kovacs from Bedord, IN following closely in third. By the halfway mark the top three had settled in with only the fourth place being contested by Joseph Turnbloom mounted on a Kawasaki closing in on Adam

Parker. At the checkers it was Schroughan first followed by Richardson and Kovacs with Turnbloom passing Parker on the double jump at the finish. Unfortunately,Turnbloom lost control and ended up crashing after earning a fourth relegating his day done and a trip to the hospital with a possible shoulder injury. Moto two, Kovacs got the lead that held only to the first set of doubles when Schroughan passed on the inside for the lead and the eventual win. Kovacs held on for second place. Some of the best racing of the day happened with the combined Open A/250B class. Open A was an all Yamaha show and went on the first drop with Scott Craven of Kentucky pushing to the front followed by Mitchel Corbin, Pendelton, and Lucas Hannons. Their positions held to the finish. At the second drop, Tommy Meiers from Ohio grabbed the holeshot on his YZ250F. Second place was Dillon Ramey from Bloomington, Indiana riding a Honda followed closely by Kawasaki rider, Steven McNeelly. While Meirs checked out for the win, McNeely worked his way by Ramey to claim second with Bobby Jacobs following on his Yamaha in fourth. In the second moto Corbin took control

of the lead in the Open A class leaving Craven and Hannons to battle it out for runner-up. On the white flag lap just after the finish line, Craven and Hannons got together while contesting a line that both thought was theirs. The bad news was Cravens was closing on Corbin but any thought of the winning the overall was done and all Cravens could do was salvage a second and second overall to Corbin’s combined 2-1 score.

Masch Mashes ‘em at Denmark Denmark, Wisconsin - April 18 By Pete Emme

A

huge effort by the club members at Sports and Competition put on the first points race of the season for District 16 in Denmark, WI. Nearly 375 entries were in attendance for a cool spring day in northeast Wisconsin, with nice track conditions. It was just good to get back into the swing of things after a long and snowy winter. It’s not too often that Denmark has hosted a race this early in spring, but Mother Nature was definitely on our side on this Sunday. In Open B it was Vince Tomasini getting the holeshot just ahead of fellow Yamaha rider Jacob Luginbuhl and twenty-two other fierce competitors. Tomasini led the pack through the s-turns and onto the back section of the track. Luginbuhl fell back a ways and was then hounded by Kyle Sharkey and new to the B class, Zack Masch. By the next lap, Masch had meticulously worked his way into the runner-up spot behind Tomasini. Masch had Tomasini in the crosshairs as they entered the final stretch of the race. Soon after, Masch made his way around Tomasini for the lead and checked out for the first moto win. Tomasini then battled with Sharkey for the second spot and as they came down the final hill to the checkers. Sharkey went to the outside while Tomasini dumped it on the inside handing second to Sharkey. “I got about a fifth place start and then I was passing people through the first two laps. After I moved into first I pulled away,” said the thirteen year old Masch. “I felt the track was really nice in that first moto, things seemed to flow really well”. In the second moto, it was Kyle Sharkey getting the nod around the fast first

In the second moto it was Masch getting the holeshot from the outside as he carried his momentum high through the first corner, getting a wheel on Cameron Cochran and Tylor Skodras. Masch pulled into a nice lead while Lukas Cobian worked his way into third behind Skodras. Masch would end up taking the second moto win. In 250A action, it was the white knight Yamaha of Brian Collins starting on the inside to almost snag the holeshot as he was cut short by Nathen LaPorte in the first corner. Following closely behind LaPorte was Matt Menzer and Matt Maier. LaPorte rode strong through the first lap as Maier started to pick off the fourth and third place riders. Kody Kamm didn’t get the greatest of starts and was now in third with one lap remaining. Maier kept very close to LaPorte, pressuring the young A rider, but would settle for second. Kamm third, Menzer and Ben Peterson rounded out the top five. “I just lined up on the start and was hoping that everything was going to go well,” said LaPorte. “The gate dropped and I had a good start and things were going well and then I felt Matt Maier behind me and he started to pressure me hard, and I never gave up, it #725 Zack Masch getting the nod in the 250B second moto start. was a really good moto”. The gate dropped for the second moto and it was LaPorte out to the five were Sharkey 2-4, Ciszewski 6-3 and lead followed by Menzer, Maier, and Kamm. Luginbuhl 4-5. Maier then moved into the second spot while 250B action was hot and heavy as the Kamm got around Menzer for third. Within first corner claimed ten riders in a massive another lap, Kamm moved around Maier and pile-up, taking out front runner Adam Reek on the way back down the hill into the chiaboard his mangled Yamaha. Other riders takcane, it was Kamm in the lead.

Tomasini and Cody Ciszewski battled it out for the second spot while Masch was in about fifteenth as they headed to the big double behind the pond. Once the riders returned back down the hill to complete the first lap Masch had put on a charge to move into the fifth spot, in one lap. Masch got around Tomasini as Lukas Cobian had moved into the lead on his Suzuki. Masch got around Ciszewski and Sharkey, but it was too late at Cobian. Cobian’s second moto win left him with 5-1 tallies, good enough for second overall while Warren Industries rider Masch took the overall with 1-2 scores. Rounding out the top

In the Open C class it was nearby Mishicot resident Joshua Mueller taking the come from behind win over Alex Williams. Williams led the first moto until he hit the soil handing the lead over to a hard charging Mueller. Williams remounted and worked his way back into the second while Mueller ran away with the first moto. The second moto, Williams was once again in contention and washed out, and had to work his way back to third. Mueller ended up taking the second moto win as well. In other competition on the day, it was Dustin Pulley getting the nod in the Open A and +25A divisions. Pulley jumped off his favorite two stroke in favor of the YZ450F and garnished four moto wins in the process. I kind of wished he still had his two stroke for the 250A class, that definitely would’ve made things even more interesting. Dwight Ingalls had his new 2010 YZ450F in the lead in both +40 motos. Tom Neilsen hung a close second but literally ran out of steam in the second moto as he settled for second. Ingalls won back to back motos.

Tom Hinze made a return to racing in the +45 division, and won back to back motos, and it was good to see The Ride’s Karter Busse cleaning up in the +30A division. Andrea Walsdorf was on fire in the Women’s class taking back to back wins aboard her KTM. Walsdorf was obviously working out during the winter and it showed on the track as she was hauling the mail in the thirteen rider field. It was a very successful day at Sports and Competition, and I’m looking forward to many more events this year in District 16.

Jeremiah Lemke made the move to the 250B class.

Forrest, Parmley Win at D&D

Rochester, Indiana- April 10 by Becky Stichter

W

hen people know you race, they don't ask what you'll be doing for the weekend. They just want to know what track you'll be at. For those running with Reads Racing, the action was at D&D. For a change, the race on Saturday was a three moto format, instead of the usual two. They had run three moto races in the past and wanted to try it again. By the third moto, some of the riders were starting to look a little tired. Mike Klinger noticed that some of the riders, even experienced ones, were starting to make mistakes that

and Forrest and Kintner were able to pass him as he fell back to fourth place. In the third moto Terry was back and came out of the woods in the lead. It wasn't long until he and Forrest were running quad to quad again. Forrest threatened to take the lead at different times, but Terry was right there with him. The end of the race was approaching and Forrest took the lead. Going into the turn before the back straight, he went wide and got stuck Matthew Forrest and Clayton Terry of the Quad A class. on the berm.

first the entire moto. Roberts stepped it up in moto two and came out with the lead, and held it until the third lap. Parmley passed him on a jump and never slowed down after that. In the third moto Roberts was the leader again, followed by Kaleb Mcdonald and then Parmley. Parmley was able to pass Mcdonald before the end of the first lap. Roberts was holding his lead until he fell in the corner going into the back straight. Parmley was able to get through and took the lead. Parmley finished first overall, and first for his class. There weren't a lot of 50cc riders today, but one young rider who really pushed himself was Paden Hudson. He got a little more aggressive each time he was on the track. By his third moto he was clearing some of the jumps. It looked like he might pass Preston Barngrover that third moto, but Barngrover opened up his Cobra on the longer stretches and held Hudson off. In the Mini Quad class Jacob Clingamen was the pace setter all three motos with Kyle Brewster not far behind. Chris


Stanton was running in third. In the third moto Brewster got stuck on the berm of the turn going into the back straight-away and lost ground, bumping him back to a fourth place finish that moto. The day ended with an open ride. Reads Racing is offering more open ride sessions this year. It gives the racers more track time, and gives people who want to ride, but not race, a chance to get on the track. I got on my bike and went out for the open ride. The track was more challenging and sandier than I expected it to be. It's a great chance to see what conditions the racers face each time they are out there. It makes me appreciate their talent and skills even more. So I'm out there riding and come to this one jump and roll over the peak SLOWLY....and I think to myself, "that Paden Hudson on the 50cc was clearing this, that is really impressive!" Good job to all who competed today.

St. Louis podium with Short, Dungey, and Windham.

very year when the Supercross schedule comes out the first thing I check is when the St. Louis event is. Being a Cycle USA reporter is great and nothing will ever replace the look of a kid when he or she sees their picture in print for the first time... but I love covering this event as well. The only down side of this event is by round 14 of the Supercross class and the last round of the lights, some of the riders are hurt, tired and the racing is just average. WRONG! I don’t know what it is but there is always something crazy and wild coming out of this event. I don’t know if it is the fact that many top riders say the Edward Jones Dome has the best dirt of the series, but there’s something to this event. The first race here Missouri rider Jeff Emig beat Jeremy McGrath. McGrath’s only loss all season! Last year Travis Pastrana rocked the house, so this year looked to be should I say “normal”.

On lap nine, almost have way through the main Dungey only had a one second lead over Villopoto and as they worked through lappers coming into the finish line Villopoto hammered the gas and made a very aggressive move taking both riders to the ground! Wow what a move was it a takeout, or attempt to pass? I can tell you from what the crowd was yelling they saw it both ways. Both riders struggled to get up, and somehow keeping their bikes running. Villopoto was the first to get under way with Dungey on the move, but making adjustments. They were surrounded by the red bikes of Short and a charging Windham. With Villopoto out front, Dungey made an aggressive pass on Short and set out after Villopoto... the crowd was going crazy, screaming and yelling. On lap eleven Villopoto entered into the section Reed was complaining about earlier, and came up way short on the triple, bailing off the bike. It was later learned he had broken his leg, ending his Supercross title chance. The crowd had some air let out of it for sure, wishing Villopoto the best. Dungey was out front but Windham moved past Short and set out after Dungey and closed the gap to two seconds only to make a small mistake with two laps to go. Tedesco then went down in the same place as

Villopoto and didn’t move until he was carted off the track. While he was down Dungey took the win with Windham second and Short third.

First moto gave Sloan Pittman the win, but Jenna Hagemann and newcomer Dawnson Penner didn’t let him have an easy ride. Both gave pressure to Pittman and each other as they battled the bumps, hills and ruts on the track. In the second mot, it was Penner that was determined to finish his first race in first place. Penner battled with Hagemann and Pittman and by lap two, Penner had succeed in being the new leader. It was on his final lap that Penner experienced machine troubles as his chain came off, leaving him stranded in the back portion of the track. This gave way to Pittman and Hagemann who finished 1st and 2nd respectively. The 70cc Production class was just as hot. With Caden Anderson and Ethan Aune battling in moto-one they pulled from the field and were neck and neck. It was Anderson that crossed the finish line first in moto-one. Moto-two, Aune was ready to take on Anderson. They fought into the first corner, bumping and rubbing and through the whoops section. As Anderson pulled ahead, you could hear Aune still staying on the gas, just waiting for his chance to make his move. By lap two, Aune had dropped back and 70cc mod rider Ryan Anderson had caught the pack and split the competition of Caden and Ethan. It was Caden Anderson that took the podium win today with Ethan Aune finishing in a close second place. In the meantime, Austin Nevala and Even Teigen were having a battle of their own. For much of the final lap, these two were side by side. It wasn’t until the last double that Nevala was able to keep his speed up and get into the last corner ahead of Teigen for third, earning third place overall for the day as well. If you thought the first two youth classes had some great racing, certainly don’t exclude 50cc class start.

the 90cc modified riders. Jake Hagemann was fast out of the start gates. He held off Luke Tyler and Ryan Trout for a good portion of the race. But it was Tyler that got around Hagemann first and then Trout battled Hagemann and soon was able to get into second. Trout ran into some machine problems on the white flag lap and Hagemann regained second. Remington Guthman also was able to get past Trout and take over third. Trout eventually got his machined back running and crossed the finish line in fourth. The second moto was just as action packed. With Trout and Tyler fighting for first, it was Trout that finally was able to cushion his lead. Guthman and Hagemann had their own action packed, side by side racing and it was Guthman that stayed ahead of Hagemann as they crossed the finish line. The champion today was Tyler, with Trout, Guthman and Hagemann finishing respectively.

Riverside Area Qualifier Winterset, IA - April 24/ 25 By Jeff DeBower Photos by Missi Thede

Conditions on Saturday helped make for some great racing.

L

ike a good mud race? Under normal circumstances heavy amounts of rain would lead a track to postpone or cancel a race, but that's just not an option when qualifying spots for the Loretta Lynn's Amateur Nationals are on the line. That was the case in Winterset, Iowa this weekend. As difficult as the conditions were, Riverside Raceway ran their area qualifier and did an outstanding job despite the uncooperative weather. With a heavy rain hitting the area on Friday night, the hardest working people were the track crew who worked from 4 a.m. until a pushed back Saturday practice to get the track to a raceable condition. First off the gate was 450 stock, and with the A and B classes running together it was one of the biggest gates of the weekend. As the fired up riders charged off the gate into the left hand sweeper, bars tangled and the result was a large pileup and red flag. Two racers unfortunately could not make the restart and were

done for the weekend. The restart saw B rider Conner Olson of Colorado grab the holeshot, followed by 450A rider Colin Hickman. Iowa's Hickman soon moved to the point on his two stroke Suzuki and stayed there to the

end to grab the class win. Ronnie Morgan followed Olson to the finish to take second in 450A. Oklahoma rider Derek Ledbetter moved past Kelly Brown to finish the combined moto in the fourth position, and second in the B class. Minnesota's Joe Perron rounded out the top five. The second moto saw some new players enter the fray at the front. Storm Lake Honda rider Zach Wallace, fourth in the first B moto grabbed the holeshot. He was soon overtaken by John Pauk, who had recorded a DNF in the first race. Hickman sat in fourth off the start, but made it to second by the end of the race after some spirited racing with Wallace. At the finish it was Pauk, Hickman, Wallace, Minnesota's Zack Williams, and Morgan. Overall in 450A was Hickman, Morgan, Perron, Brown, and Logan Marzahn. Overall in 450B stock was Olson, Wallace, Williams, Ledbetter, and Bryan Jones. The local rider Hickman was impressive all weekend as he also took the win in both of the 250A motos on the two stroke 250. "I thought the track crew did a great job of making the track raceable, but it was still muddy, and I love to ride in the mud. It was a good weekend for me. I would like to thank my sponsors Country Cycle, Hickman Racing, Scott, Atomic 22, Thede Photography, and my mechanic Breck Bonnell for all of


their help". Sunday’s conditions got worse in a hurry. Mansfield, Texas Team Green rider Zeb Smith made the trip to Iowa and showed why he came away with two titles, and three more podiums from the Nationals at Oak Hill and Lake Whitney this year. Smith won all of his motos in strong fashion in 250B stock, 250B mod, and the 450B mod classes. Smith didn’t race at all in 2009 after suffering a neck injury in the fall of 2008. "I've actually raced in Iowa once before and it was muddy then so this is Norman Welter finished not unfamiliar to me. I second overall in 65 7-8 Stock. also stayed at Teddy ready dog tired Maier’s place for a week once, so that experitrack crew was ence was good to." excelled on Sunday.

250C class on the line.

Under the lights at Joliet Wilmington, Illinois - April 17 By Samantha K. Brent

I

t was action packed at Joliet MX all day and into the evening Saturday April 17th. Despite the fact that there were qualifiers going on for the Loretta Lynns at other tracks, there was still a decent turnout. The weather was a bit cool at 63, but the sun was shining and the skies were clear, and of course racers those conditions! Pro motocross rider Chad Johnson was here this morning to give a School to riders. Johnson also did a meet/greet and autograph signing, the riders were stoked to see him and to have a rare opportunity to learn from a pro! Practice kicked off at 5:00pm and went very well on the impeccably groomed track .The riders were a buzz about the track’s condition and the loamy quality. Despite having such a tough season in 2009, Joliet MX started out the Arsenal Series season for 2010 with many improvements, including lots of saw dust and sand added to the tracks, particularly on the Supercross track, and the addition of many new lights. A brief shout out to rider #94 Steven Page on his KTM, as the Arsenal Series season began on April 3rd, JMX welcomed Page back after the recent loss of his father. It was good to see Page continuing on and striving to stick with the sport that he and his father were involved in together. Bryan White crashed in Thursday’s practice on his Yamaha but came back tonight to pull off the win in the +25A class. In 65 Beginner, young Jason Stricklin was excited to pull off a fourth place finish. Stricklin was surprised to see that he hadn’t come in last being that it was his first race ever. JolietMX sends out a big “way to go kid” to Stricklin. In the Pit Bike main the static was crackling as a very heated battle for the win ensued. Brian Krohn on the #9 KTM got the holeshot right from the start but Zach Martino was charging hard on his Kawasaki to challenge for the win. Krohn said, “I really thought he

was going to catch me.” Krohn and Martino put on a great show as they battled each other throughout the race ratcheting the stands into a delighted raucous! “When Zach fell in the second to last lap, I knew I had it,” Krohn said recalling the moment that cemented his win. The crowd really went wild when just before heading for the finish line jump, Krohn stopped and waited for Martino to catch up to him just long enough for Martino to then see Krohn throttle it and take the checkered flag! Krohn got a jab in saying with a smirk, “I wanted to rub it in his face that I was at Zach’s own track and I beat at him at it!” Martino’s equally tongue & cheek response to Krohn was, “I’m going to protest the win!” It’s all good fun though folks, these two are actually buddies, Martino and Krohn playfully spar with each other off track all the time just as if Martino was Krohn’s older brother. Don’t feel too bad for Martino though, because he still had a great night on his with the win in 14-24, 250A, and a second place finish in Open A. For the 250B class #66 Kyle Polska on his KTM claimed the win, followed by Cody Siler and Matthew Akers. Tonight’s race was a personal triumph story for Akers being that this was only the second motocross race he has ever been in, and he nailed a podium position. Akers said his favorite part of the track is the sweeper before the finish line jump, and the most difficult part for him were the two table tops on the back straight. Akers passed four riders and battled with Polska for a bit before Polska pulled away eventually getting the win. Akers said he was, “pumped about getting a podium place, I want to thank my dad & Brandy, and Jon Williams for teaching me so much”. The 250C class had the biggest starting gate of the night and a few very exciting factors. Thirteen year-old Logan Skaggs, in his first race ever in 250C on his KTM, came out of the gates with a fire under him pulling off the holeshot! Skaggs took the win, followed by Justin Hove, August Miksys, and Timmy Hensley.

Skaggs said, “The track was mostly pretty easy for me,” adding that the only part that gave him the slightest difficulty was, “the ruts in the corners, the corners were loose and sandy. I’m happy to get this win (his first in this class) out of the way and try to do the same the rest of the year. I’d like to thank my mom and dad, they’ve helped me all the way.” Open B class winner Cody Siler came out second from the gate and beat four 450 4strokes for the win on his 125! It was a great night for everyone at the track tonight.
