eventeen year old Joe McGurer had a ‘fast’ weekend at the Pleasure Riders final doubleheader hillclimb of 2012, taking the Overall Fast Time award both days and the coveted King of the Hill award on Sunday. Riding his KX500, Joe took the Fast Time Saturday night with a 3.589 second high flying run on his first ride in the 600cc class. He overtook pro rider Shane Green in the same class. Danny Schumann, also riding in the 600cc class was third fastest with a 3.728 second time on his Kawasaki. On Sunday, McGurer took the first round lead again in the 600cc class with a 3.710 second time, overtaking Cody Jenner (now riding his Honda), who sailed over in 3.724 seconds to take a brief lead. In the second round, Jenner moved back into the lead with a 3.657 second run, only to see McGurer pin his throttle and fly over the top in 3.646 seconds to take his second fast time win of the weekend. Dylan Brady was third with a 3.739 second run. Jon Creek was McGurer’s closest challenger for the Fast Time award, nailing a 3.650 second time to win the Senior class. The King of the Hill class is run once a year by each club in Districts 15/ 17, and features the ten fastest riders of the day, regard-

less of the class, in a one run, winner take all shootout. Matt Peters started this class with a fine 3.658 second run on his KX500, and watched seven riders take their shot without beating his time. But the ninth rider in the shootout was Jammin’ Joe, and he flew his Kawasaki over the top in 3.618 seconds to claim the ‘King for a Day’ award. Jon Creek was third with a 3.709 second time on his Honda. In youth class action, Levi Peters claimed the Youth Fast Time award both days on his KX85. Riding in the 85Jr class, Levi’s 4.304 second time on Saturday was the winner with Andrew Fortner second. On Sunday, Levi turned in a 4.381 second time for the win with Jonathon Brian second. In other youth class action, Brodie Bennett won the 50cc class on Saturday with Jadyn Aliprandini second, with Jadyn taking the win Sunday with Brodie second. Gage Stear claimed the 65cc class win both days with Peters second Saturday and Derick Bell second on Sunday. Jacob Bell was first with Clint Garriott second in the 85Sr riders both days. In the Women’s class action, Lauren Shafer and Lakota ‘Shay’ Ashworth flipped the wins and seconds. An interesting sideline is that fifteen year old Lauren was riding the same KTM525 that her dad, Steve rode in the Senior class, and beat his time both days. Not to be outdone by Lauren, Shay rode the same

CR500 that her stepfather, Mark Peters rode in the Super Senior class, AND – she beat Mark’s times both days! Sorry Steve/ Mark just couldn’t resist pointing that out.

Duquette Enduro Shines Duquette, Minnesota - August 26 By Mike Pohl

T

he Straight Arrow Enduro Rider’s Duquette Enduro was voted Best Enduro of The Year in 2011. If rider feedback is any indication, it looks like it could be a repeat for 2012 as well. The weather, the course, and the trail conditions added up to a very agreeable day in the woods. And finally, we had a 2012 off-road event where we didn’t have to ride in stinking hot weather conditions. Rider turnout equalled that of 2011. Trail Boss Ken Fastner connected just about every piece of single track in the Nemadji State Forest into the course. With the (long) transfer sections to and from the trails, A/B riders got in nearly 80 miles of travel. The competition portion of the course was roughly 60 miles in length. C riders were routed past the A/B loop, which contained some beautiful trails in Douglas County Wisconsin. Stay tuned, as we may be seeing more trail development in the Douglas County section of the Nemadji Trail system. Overall winner was AA rider Nate Ferderer, with Senior A rider Matt Stavish bringing in second place. Kent Schnaith commented that it was a “Great day for riding. Excellent trails, no face slappers. I had some thrills and spills. I remember Matt Stavish passing me in every section, that's what really fast looks like.” Juston Beach thought there were “ideal conditions, good weather, nice trails.” Rider Vito Tomolillo said, “We had perfect weather and the trails were in excellent condition with no dust. Nice fast flowing sections with the odd tight section to throw you off balance. Not too tough, but not too easy either.”

Robert Swift navigating the trial in +50A.

Jay Waalen commented that “the scoring was record fast, thanks!” Could the 2012 Duquette Enduro be enduro of the year again? We’ll have to wait until January 2013 to find out.

State Race at G&S Racing

#413 Keegan Hicks and Shadd Miser in 125cc 2-stroke.

Laotto, Indiana - August 26 By Becky Stichter

R

ound two of the state race series was held at G&S today. A good rider turnout and nice weather set the stage for a great day of racing. There were a lot of talented and fast riders on the track, making the twenty classes exciting to watch. The 250C class was the largest group, with sixteen riders on the gate. In the first moto Levi Johnson, mounted on a Kawasaki, shot out of the gates first. Several riders behind Johnson went down in the first corner and lost some ground. Right away Johnson was getting a lot of pressure from Jacob White. Brandon Schneider, who had gotten a poor start was making up the ground he lost quickly. It wasn't long before Schneider sped past White and was soon on Johnson's back tire. Johnson held Schneider back for a while, but Schneider kept pulling back the throttle on his Suzuki, and worked his way into the lead for the win. In the second moto, Johnson, Schneider, and Mason Brown had a great battle. Brown was out of the gates first, but Johnson and Schneider both rode past to fight for the win. Johnson and Schneider switched positions a few times throughout the moto. Finally Schneider had enough, took the lead, and didn't give it up again. As Johnson continued to focus on the leader, Brown found an opportunity to zip past him late in the race for second. Trevor Colip and Gavin George were the fastest riders in the 50cc (7-8) class today. Both motos these two had a large lead, and a 8 CYCLE USA, October 2012

good battle between each other. In the first moto, George had his KTM humming and was the leader of the pack. Colip, mounted on a Cobra, pressured George the entire time. Behind the leaders, Lucas Grounds and Landyn Iden were having a battle too. Iden rode the track well, finishing ahead of Grounds. In the second moto, Colip was out of the gates first. George gave Colip a good run, but Colip kept his lead. Iden and Grounds were the next in line again behind the two leaders. Connar Troyer of the 250B class was here to take care of business. Troyer didn't waste any time pulling back the throttle on his Yamaha, and taking the lead both motos. There were a lot of fast riders in the group, but Troyer was the fastest. William Patton, Nicholas Craig and Alix Edsall had some great racing going on behind the leader. It was anyone’s race. Patton pulled into second place, and as Patton maintained his position, Edsall moved into third place ahead of Craig. In the second moto, Troyer rode wicked fast and took another win as Patton, Craig, and Edsall fought

it out again. Patton repeated his second place finish. It looked like Craig decided he wasn't going to finish behind Edsall this time, so Craig hit the gas hard on his Kawasaki, and zipped past. Craig didn't let up, and finished third this moto. In moto one of the +30B class, Michael Warmoth, led the way out of the gates. Greg Coda didn't waste any time passing Warmoth. Michael Rice and Adam Neu were next in line and were battling it out too. Neu found an opportunity in the last lap to pass Rice, and Rice wasn't able to regain his position. In the second moto, Warmoth was first out of the gates, but then had some problems and fell way back. Coda and Neu were battled the entire moto! Coda rode ahead of Neu for about half the race, then Neu decided it was time to hit the gas on his Kawasaki and get things done. Neu sped past Coda to take the lead and win. Dana Miller who rode back a little further in the first moto, had a better run this time and worked his way into third position, ahead of Rice. The +50 class had some experienced riders on the track. Mike Farley, mounted on a Honda took the lead out of the gates in moto one. Dan Heingartner and Brad Winstead were bike to bike, and not far behind. As Farley held Heingartner and Winstead back, Connie Fiest, was rapidly devouring the riders ahead of him. Fiest skillfully worked his way into second, and then rode past Farley and on to the checkered flag! In the second moto, Fiest had a much better start and led the pack the entire moto. Farley rode well in second. Heingartner edged out Winstead this moto.

250B class winner Connar Troyer.


Both of the 85cc classes had some great racing. In moto one of the (12-15) class, Austin Griffis, Kraye Loft, Isaiah Shelton, and Joshua Taylor had an intense battle. Loft was out of the gates the fastest, but soon passed by Griffis. Loft stayed right on Griffis' rear tire, and Shelton was on Lofts'. The three held these positions for about half the moto, then Taylor made his move. Taylor opened up the throttle on his Kawasaki and zipped past Shelton. Loft held Taylor back until the last lap. Once Taylor passed Loft, he was after Griffis. Taylor pulled up a bike’s length or less behind Griffis. Griffis had to feel Taylor breathing down his back, but he kept his throttle pulled back and rode flawlessly to the checkered line. In the second moto, Griffis rode in the lead with Taylor pushing him from the start. These two battled the entire moto. It looked like Griffis was going to take another win, but he went down in a corner close to the finish line! Taylor was right there and rode on by. Griffis got up quickly, but the race was already lost at that point. What a race!! In the 85cc (9-11) class, Lane Wienhorst and Evan Faucett were the fastest riders. Wienhorst had the lead briefly in the first moto, but Faucett got a feel for the track and started pulling the throttle on his Suzuki, passing Wienhorst. After several position changes in the first few laps, Nicholas Hunt worked

his way into third, followed by Thaine Boehme. In moto two, Faucett rode even faster, and took the lead from the gates. Wienhorst rode solid again in second, followed by Hunt. The Mini Quad riders put on a good show. In moto one Logan Stanfield, sporting a new Cobra, shot out of the gates and had a decent lead. Drake Edwards and Brogan Guyer were next in line. Stanfield maintained his lead most of the moto before his machine broke. Guyer was there to take the lead, getting a lot of pressure from Edwards and Davison Emery. In the last lap, Edwards pulled ahead of Guyer, but his quad broke down right after the whoops, just before the finish line! In moto two, all the riders were back on the gate. Edwards, still feeling some of the adrenaline from his first William Patton won victory, took the lead. the 125cc 2-stroke class.

Davison Emery, Jordanne Stichter and Brogan Guyer weren't far behind. Guyer broke down in the first lap, and was a DNF. Then Emery's chain came off, giving Edwards some breathing room. Abby Bowyer rode past Stichter late in the race, for second place.

Donald Baker and Connie Fiest of the +40 class were the fastest in their group today. Baker took the lead both motos, and went on to win. Behind the two leaders, Todd White an Matt Maley battled it out for the next position. In the first moto, White out rode Maley. Maley answered back in the second moto, finishing ahead of White. Dian Manns, of the Womens 12+ class set the pace for the group both motos. Madison Johnson did some great racing as well. Addison Clouse, Kristin Henson, and Emily Eubanks were next in line behind the two leaders. The 125cc 2-str B/C group was one of the last races of the day, and had some great racing. William Patton, mounted on a Yamaha, led the way out of the gates in moto one. Elijah Labordus and Jagg Nunez weren't far behind. Labordus held Nunez back for about half the moto, then Nunez stepped it up, and worked his way around. In the second moto, Patton again took the lead, and another win. Nunez pulled into second, but had Keegan Hicks and Josh Workman behind him this time. Nunez rode solid, holding the others back. Hicks finished ahead of Workman. It was a hot and dry day, but a lot of great racing was done today. 10

Beautiful weekend at New Harford New Hartford, Iowa - September 8 By Missi Thede

N

ew Hartford kicked off a great weekend of racing with beautiful sunny weather. The track had received the perfect amount of rain on Friday thanks to Mother Nature, and everyone was in for one of those wonderful double headers. First moto in the 85Jr class started with twelve riders coming off the gate. #231 Ruger Brown took the holeshot with #257 Jacob Dakovich right behind him as Patrick Murphy and Maliq McCaleb followed right on their rear fenders. McCaleb moved up to third and Paxton Jobe slid into fourth by midmoto. It didn’t last for Jobe as he was dropped back a couple spots when Murphy and Brady Hagenstein pushed forward. Finishing off the first moto was Brown, Dakovich, McCaleb, Murphy and Hagenstein. The second moto action had Brown and Dakovich rounding the start corner side by side, both determined to take the second moto win. Murphy and McCaleb were in close pursuit. Brown pulled ahead for the lead with McCaleb in third. McCaleb then moved in on Dakovich and took the second spot. Brown finished first, McCaleb second and Dakovich third with the overall reigning the same. Excitement in the 14-24B/C class had #82 Curt Pfalzgraf with the holeshot followed by #238 Jared Barnes, #912 Marissa Busby

Ruger Brown won the 85Jr class

14-24B/C action between #912 Marissa Busby and Kevin Goette.

and #6 Kevin Goette in a full fledged war on positioning. Busby and Goette flew side by side over the table tops after the start as Goette readied his move on her. Barnes moved to the outside of Pfalzgraf for the lead while Goette pushed forward in third with his sites on Pfalzgraf. In the next lap Goette grabbed the second spot with Pfalzgraf falling back. Through the last lap it was down to the wire as Goette and Barnes were side by side. Barnes got hung on the inside corner right before the finish line taking him down, giving Goette the win. Barnes saved his second place finish before Busby get by. Second moto had a very tight first lap as Barnes led with Pfalzgraf and Goette following. Goette moved into second as Busby held fourth. Barnes secured second moto win plus the overall for the day with Goette taking second, Busby third overall and Pfalzgraf fourth.

I94 Supercross Series finale Hustler Wisconsin - Aug 24/25 By Doug Forstner

Alex Mikelson in the 50cc class with his first trophy ever.

T

he I94 Monster Energy Supercross Series wrapped up its 2012 season with the final rounds in Hustler, Wisconsin. The final races also are in conjunction with the Annual Hustlerfest. Racing, fair rides, bands, games and good times all go hand and hand this weekend. The local community really supports this race with a ton of volunteers willing to come out and make it a success. Even with the hot and dry summer we all have experienced, that didn’t stop the CMJ crew and volunteers from getting ahold of two water trucks, and making sure the track was well prepped for the weekend. All the races went off without a hitch, and everything ran pretty smooth to the delight of the large crowds both days. As usual in this series, the kid’s classes are the biggest, and had the largest turnouts. If you have raced this series, you know that there is a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Friday night under the lights, the heat races were followed by the main events. Not only do the top five in each class get an award for the individual race, but each class pays out big at the end of the series if you are in the top five and went to enough of the races. In the 50cc class Justin Oehlhof rocketed out of the hole, launching his KTM down the long start straight ahead of the charging pack. On lap two, there was a good battle brewing between Erik Mikelson and Jordyn Olver for second place. Just then the long whoop section claimed Olver, and Will Halverson was

50cc class winner Justin Oehlhof.

most passes of any of the classes. Mat Herrington seemed to agree with the layout, and jumped out front early. He had Cullen Lindner and Dylan Kobel in tow. Right behind the leaders, was another battle between Austin Goodwater, Lewis Medearis, and Jared Georgeson. After the backside plateau jump is a long straight that leads into a 180 degree turn which puts the riders right into the whoop section. These three each lap would set each other up coming into this corner and each lap all three seemed to be blitzing the whoops side by side, and every lap the order would change. As the laps wound down, things heated up Goodwater squared both Medearis and Georgeson and took over fourth and right after that Medearis and Georgeson tangled allowing Goodwater to escape and move into third after Kobel went down. Herrington took the win ahead of Lindner. Colton Bentz won 250C and Open C in convincing fashion. In 250C Bentz was able to get out front ahead of Tyler Sawle, who also had a good start. Tyler Parker and Max Annen had a good race and again a lot of opportunities for passing were available. The key to having a good race at this track is to have decent throttle control and limit your mistakes. Some of the track was tilled deep which offered excellent traction and some parts a little #1 Will Halverson and Alex Mikelson in the 50cc class.

able to move into third, and that’s how the main event finished. Ethan Briner took fourth, Madison Mallory rounded out the top five. The 65cc class was also pretty full, and it was Collin Benson and Oehlhof on their KTM’s who blasted out front. Oehlhof was riding well and seemed to have the track dialed in as he stayed right with Benson. Landon Cannon, Nicholas Coplien and Sam Forstner were rounding out the top five in the opening laps. Even though the track is supercross sized, the ten lap mains seem long enough for riders to be able to make moves throughout the race. Toward the end of the race, Forstner was closing on the leaders and made a couple nice passes to get into the lead, and hang on to win ahead of Benson. Oehlhof finished third ahead of Cannon and Mikelson. The 250B main was probably the most exciting of the night with by far the


hard packed. Bentz took the win ahead of Sawle and Derek Medearis. Ryan Phillips slid into fourth place just ahead of Parker. As the racing wound down for the night, the bands and Hustlerfest activities picked up. Saturday, some new faces showed up to join the racing. As soon as the local parade was finished and people could make their way to the track, the racing resumed. Saturday was pretty much a copy of Friday night’s action with a lot of the same winners. Oehlhof won peewee class, Max Steinhorst dominated the 85cc class, Herrington again took control of the B classes although event promoter Chris Halverson gave him a run for his money in the pitbike class. Halverson still led with only a quarter lap to go, but Herrington found an inside line on Halverson and got around for the photo finish. At the end of the day, everyone was leaving with a smile on their face so I guess all the goals were met. There was even talk of making the series bigger next year, so plan now for some good racing and fun times.

Fealy, Allen Ace Cambridge TT Cambridge, MN - September 9 By Tim McBride

F

In Quad racing, Big Lake Minnesota’s Nick Allen scored a pair of victories in the Open Pro and Open Pro-Am classes. A pair of heats set the stage for the Open Pro main event. Allen topped heat one and his long time rival Matt Ernhart won heat two. The main event saw Allen score a narrow victory ahead of a hard charging Ernhart. Jordan Lokken, Ashton Norem and Jeremy Messner rounded out the top five positions of the ten rider field. The two Open Pro-Am Quad class heats saw a repeat performance from winners Allen

irst year AMA Pro Singles contender Cole Fealy had a pretty impressive weekend of racing for sure. In only his third outing on the National level, Fealy qualified for the previous Saturday evening’s race program at the AMA Knoxville National, quite a feat. Fealy then hopped in his van and drove 400 miles overnight back to Minnesota to compete in and win the Open Semi-Pro main event at the Cambridge TT. The event was hosted by the Boehlke family - Kurt and his two daughters Bailey and Shelby Lynn, the Norseman MC and a host of hard working volunteers. The Open-Semi Pro heat race got underway with Randy Thistle out front until Wade Wessels made the pass as they rounded the tricky right hand turn on the one half mile Tourist Trophy style circuit. A slow starting Fealy was just getting up to speed before crashing at the exit turn leading to the finish line jump. Wessels scored the win ahead of Thistle and a host of riders making the jump to the pro class that included Tony Hauer, Elliot Darsow, Dave Darsow, (Elliot’s Dad) Lee Fealy, (Cole’s Dad) a recovered Cole Fealy and Geoff Thistle (Randy’s son). (Flat track racing is indeed a family affair) The main event saw Randy Thistle out front again followed by Wessels, Hauer and the father-son team of Cole and Lee Fealy. While making a bid for the lead over the finish line jump Wessels’ drive chain derailed upon landing knocking him out of contention. Meanwhile Cole Fealy was biding his time as he slid past Hauer and began to stalk Thistle. He finally made his move passing Thistle at the left hand hairpin and proceeded to check out for his first Pro division victory of his career. Thistle maintained second ahead of Hauer, Elliot Darsow, Lee Fealy and Dave Darsow. “I could have made a more aggressive pass on Randy earlier,” explained Cole Fealy. “But I talked him into racing the Pro class in the first place and I didn’t want to do that. I wish Wade didn’t break, I think we would have had a good race.” When asked who his sponsors were, the grassroots racer replied, “JRG PerIowa’s Steve Boggs gets the jump to win the Open formance and my Dad!” Twin Division. #56 Mike Schmidt finished second.

and Ernhart. Once again the main event saw Allen race to the checkers. Ernhart however had to claw his way through heavy traffic to earn second place by race end. The Open A class saw Brock Zychowski score an upset victory over heat race winner Derek Desens. JJ Jaworski finished third ahead of Ben Jenkins, Shannon Logue and Kevin Martin. The Mini 50/70cc Quad class saw Emik Hauer score the win over Jp St James. The battle for third place went to the wire as Ayla Lokken edged Olivia Hauer for the position.

#319 Nick Allen won Open Pro and Open Pro-Am.

tion was a split where you could take the inside and go through the whoops or go outside and take a rhythm section. This made things very interesting as it was the last section before the final turn into the finish line. A lot of races came down to who was faster through their chosen section. Also a new sand sweeper connecting the original track to the new section made for a lot of passing. The A class was large tonight with a big purse on the line. Everyone was out to win. First up in Open A there was eighteen riders lining up for their chance at the pot. Off the gate Justin Kelly took the holeshot with Cameron Lansing and Maxx Malatia in his wake. Coming through the sand Ty Tyrell snuck around the back of the pack moving in behind Kelly, pushing Lansing back to third. Lansing went down moving Tommy Hofmaster to third, making that the final order of the race. 250A came out later that night with a great race in store as well. This time Cameron Lans-

ing grabbed the holeshot with Kevin Markwardt and Jacob Berger, a newcomer to the track rounding out the top three. Coming out of the new section Markwardt went outside over the table top to take over the lead where he started pulling away. Back in fourth place David Gassin, another newcomer to track was battling with Berger and made his was on the inside of the sand section to finally take over third. Coming over the finish line Markwardt held on for the win, with Lansing and Gassin hold their positions. The +25 race tonight was very exciting with so many passes going on; the fight went all the way to the checkered flag. Coming off of the line Justin Kelly rocketed out front with Kevin Markwardt and Chad Johnson right behind him. Jumping in the sand section Markwardt lost his back end going down, moving Johnson and David Gassin up. Coming over the table top Gassin got around Johnson then into the split section Tommy Hofmaster was flying through, passing them both, moving into second place. Gassin went down and did not finish the race pushing Markwardt back up into third. A new class for the series tonight was 14-24A. Coming off the line Maxx Malatia took the holeshot. Kyle Collaltz was right behind him in second and Brandon Pope was third. Malatia was charging hard starting to create a good gap while Collaltz and Pope were going back and forth every lap trying to get around. It came down to a drag race down the split section. Pope took the inside to go for the whoops and Collaltz took the outside rhythm section. Pope took the whoops perfectly and was able to get inside of Collaltz and make the pass. Zach Coons had been in fourth trying to make some ground back when Collaltz went down moving Coons into third and Malachi Messenger into fourth. Chase Sexton was at Stateline MX for the first time this


season. He entered in 85Sr, Supermini, and Pit bike Stk. Up first was 85Sr where Sexton took the holeshot with Jimmy Epifanio and Rj Mackenzie battling for position. Mackenzie was trying hard to get around Epifanio and ended up sliding out. Alex Taylor capitalized moving in third; Mackenzie was able to keep it together and stuck it out for fourth. In SuperMini the launch was identical with Sexton out front, with Epifanio and Mackenzie right behind him. Coming into the sand section Sexton landed with his front tire sideways in order to whip the back end around as he does a lot. This lap didn’t work out so well, he hit the corner a little to square and went over the bars. He was able to get right back on the bike and get out front to keep the lead for the rest of the race. Fourteen riders lined up for 250B. Off the gates Jordan Mackiewicz took the holeshot with Mark Marincic in second and Hailey Larson was in third, stopping by to the race, riding out of California. She was riding fast all night making a run for

second. Coming up on the third lap Larson got around Marincic over the table top. Mackiewicz took the win holding on the lead for the entire race. In Open B Larson took the holeshot with Matt Michelotti and Lucas Hayes on the hunt. Larson started to pull away while Caleb Gilberston made his way inside of Hayes to take over third. Coming over the line Larson took the win with Michelotti and Gilberston rounding out the top three. The Quads had a great showing out there this evening with eight riders lining for Quad A. Coming off the line Devin Krontz took the holeshot having the points leader Ethan Pickard and Jory Dalsanto right on his tail. Over the table top Pickard got the outside line, taking the lead from Krontz. Meanwhile behind them Kory Blake took the inside through the sand to take over third. This left them to cross the line with Pickard in the lead followed by Krontz and Blake. Continued on page 19

Joliet season winding down Wilmington Illinois - Aug. 25th By Josh Rud, More photos at: www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

T

here has been some great racing out at Joliet MX. Tonight, the 25th of August the bonus points race for the Arsenal Series was under way, and the turnout was great! There was some great weather with the incredible summer heat wave subsiding finally. Tonight there was some extra action during intermission, with a special pit bike race, and Jon Williams doing some freestyle to wow the crowd. Everyone was eager to come out and get those extra points, with a lot of the classes having some close battles. 250C had a great race with position changes happening almost every lap. Trevor Hayes took the holeshot with Derek Brueggert in second and Brandon Larson third. Coming into the whoops section Brueggert got inside Hayes and took over the lead. Hayes in a rush to catch back up allowed Larson to take over second. With the white flag waving Hayes put on the charge and went outside to pass Larson in the sweeper, then coming over the table top he passes Brueggert to take over the lead. Open C was another great race tonight with Hayes grabbing the holeshot, Nick Smith in sec-

ond and Larson in third. Michael Bank went inside Larson to take over third. Coming up to the table top Bank passed Smith in the air, moving up to second and heading for Hayes. Smith and Larson both had some trouble moving them back and Cody Meyer took over third place. Over the finish line Hayes held on for the win with Bank in second and Meyer third. 250B left the line with seven riders. Harvey Bushby got out front with the holeshot while Lucas Hayes slid into second and Mark Marincic third. Coming into the second turn Marincic fell, trapping August Miksys in his tire, letting Jordan Mackiewicz move into third. Coming

around the sweeper Mackiewicz got around Hayes with Brian Krohn coming right behind him. Bushby rode hard to create a pretty big gap coming across the line for first, with Mackiewicz second. 85 Open came out in full force with eleven riders packing the gate for an exciting race. Christopher Gallagher took the holeshot leading Shane Reilly and Nick Cutrone. Blasting into the second turn Reilly went hard outside to take over the lead while Ben Ibianskas charged through the whoops passing Cutrone and Gallagher, taking over second place. Ibianskas was charging hard trying to take over the lead and stalled coming

out of a turn, letting Cutrone and Gallagher past. Reilly was making a pretty good gap out front while Ibianskas was flying through traffic, trying to get back up front. When the checker flag came out he had made it all the way back to third place; Reilly took first, and Cutrone held onto second. 85Sr was another great race tonight with Nick Cutrone coming out front to take the holeshot, before going down hard in the whoops. Everyone scattering to avoid the wreck, Kevin Madden came out in the lead with Chase Boykin and Dylan Roesch chasing. The order stayed the same out front with Madden taking the win. In the 65s tonight there was some great racing as always. Up first with 65Sr Scotty Scamen came off the line pulling Nolan Dickinson and Pierce Rogers with him. Coming over the table top, Conner Burger was able to get around Rogers to take over third. Scamen was able to hold off Dickinson to take first, and Burger finished third. In 65Jr Joe Quest grabbed the lead with Hunter Billingsley in second and Connor Mackinnis third. James McDannel came around the outside taking over second passing Billingsley and Mackinnis right away. Mackinnis got the inside line on Billingsley and moved into third, then into second passing McDannel. They crossed the line in the same order with Quest taking the impressive win.


Tonight was a great night for racing at Joliet MX. During intermission they had an open pit bike race that split the pot with the track for the winner. This is becoming a new event every race, with more and more interest. It’s always fun watching the pit bikes out there cruising around, along with Jon Williams coming out during the intermission to put on a freestyle show.

Quad Event at Hangtime Akron, Indiana - September 3 By Becky Stichter

Stone Hullinger. Miller kept pushing the gas on his Honda, holding Ridenour back. Then Miller Jr. had some problems in a corner, and lost a lot of ground. Ridenour was right there to pass and take the lead. Hullinger and Mony Howe were battling it out for second, with Howe pulling ahead this time. Miller was back on the track for the second moto, and found himself chasing Ridenour. Miller pressured the leader, but couldn't get around him. Ridenour went on to win again. It turned out to be a good day of racing for the quad riders, and an open ride was held after the racing was finished to give that little extra to the riders as well.

L

abor Day weekend is generally considered the end of summer, and with this in mind the staff at Reads Racing planned a weekend full of events. Mother nature was not very cooperative, and several events were cancelled due to heavy rain. Round three of the ATV series was scheduled for Monday. After a downpour Sunday night, the track was soaking wet, muddy, and another cancellation seemed likely. The Reads' staff didn't give up. Practice was delayed thirty minutes and a lot of mud was pushed off the track. By the second practice it was shaping up, and by race time, the it was pretty decent. The Quad A class was the first on the track. In the first moto Scott Gluth was out of the gates first. Eric Lapato and Roger Gluth were running quad to quad behind. Near the end of the race, Lapato had a problem in a corner, and lost a lot of ground. Roger Gluth took advantage, and rode by. In the second moto Scott Gluth again took the early lead, followed by Lapato and Roger Gluth. This time Roger Gluth edged out Lapato. Mini Quad riders Brogan Guyer and Logan Stanfield took early leads in the first moto. Behind the leaders Davison Emery, Jordanne Stichter and Drake Edwards had a good race going on. Every time Emery tried to make a move, Stichter shut him down. As Emery was pressuring Stichter, Edwards was right on Emery, pressuring him the entire moto. In moto two, Guyer took the lead out of the gates, followed by Edwards, Stichter and Stanfield. Stanfield worked his way up to second position, getting some pressure from Edwards until Edwards' machine broke down. Guyer and Stanfield had comfortable leads in front of the others. Emery and Stichter had another intense battle. Emery pressured hard again, but Stichter kept giving her KTM the gas and held him back. In the Mini Jr class, Joshua Graham and Bodie Derrer led the group. Graham ran a few quad lengths ahead of Derrer in moto one, but as the race progressed, Derrer closed the gap. Behind the leaders, Kaden Derrer and 20

Dirty Old Blasters Day Lake Mills, Wisconsin – September 8 By Sierra Dortch

T

he weather was great this weekend for the annual Senior Nationals at Aztalan. The sky was clear, and it was around seventy degrees all weekend. With 323 entries, it was a good day of racing. Tom Dretzka started off the day in +50A by grabbing the holeshot with Roy Nafzger right behind. Over the plateau on the first lap, Kurt Andrews passed Michael Westbrook for third. By the second lap, Dretzka and Nafzger had a comfortable gap from the rest of the pack. William Ziesk and Andrews had a good battle going for third and Lonny Brown wasn’t far behind. Andrews couldn’t keep Ziesk behind and moved back to fourth. Dretzka held Nafzger off until the last lap, but once Nafzger got around him, he started to walk away. Ziesk kept a comfortable third place with Brown and Westbrook behind him. The second moto, Nafzger got the holeshot with Dretzka in tow. Brown stayed in third until the last lap when Jeffrey Mclain snuck past. In +50B/C, Jeff Ramsay got through the holeshot first with Ed Smulders following closely. Mark Joseph passed Smulders soon after. Ramsay gained a comfortable distance on second and finished the race that way. Joseph kept second for a lap when Smulders got him back. Smulders put a corner between him and Joseph right away. Brad Garland and

Ed Lovely had a good race going in fourth and fifth. It was starting to look like Garland was gonna take fourth when Lovely snuck around him just before the finish. Smulders pulled the moto two holeshot with Ramsay on his tail. Ramsay didn’t let smulders walk away, he stayed a corner behind him the entire race. Lovely had a solid third place that didn’t need much defending. Dietmar Cobian held up fourth for two laps until Joseph and Edward Mehring took it away. Smulders crashed on the last lap, ending with a sixteenth finish in the second moto. Ramsay took the win with Lovely second and Joseph in third. +30B/C lined up on the gate with thirtynine riders, the largest class of the day. Zeno Molteni took that holeshot by a mile and ran with it. Jim Beckman was second out of the start with Joshua Kiselicka following. Beckman was able to relax a little bit when Kiselicka went down but before long, Martin Mecum was trying to take second away. Kristopher Dubiel got around Robert Manke and started to chase down Mecum and Beckman. He got them both on the third lap and finished in second. Mecum got inspired and followed Dubiel around Beckman. Beckman kept falling back and finished in sixth and on the last lap, Mecum fell back to ninth. Manke took the holeshot second moto when Molteni fell. Eric Hillary followed him with Brad Yde not far off. Molteni started picking off riders

by the third lap and caught the leaders. He made short work of Yde and Hillary, and passed Manke on the third lap. Manke finished in second with Yde in third. Next on the line was +30A. Corey Holman squeaked out of the holeshot in first with Karter Busse chasing him. Busse got around and distanced himself quickly. Jeff Bennett caught up to Holman but stayed behind until the last lap. Peter Ledingham had fourth place until David Smage went around. Holman pulled another holeshot but Busse didn’t let him get far before passing him. Busse gapped the pack again. Smage got around Holman and finished the moto in second. Holman moved back to fourth when Bennett made his pass for third. The Evo Twinshock class lined up on the gate, reminding everybody where this sport originated. Michael Hasek was first through corner one. Cody Behrens went around him soon after and left everybody in his dust. Before the end of the first lap, Brian Martens had second place with Eric Bullard in third and Jade Wennlund fourth. Everybody held their positions until the last lap when something happened and Bullard didn’t finish. Second moto, Behrens pulled a great holeshot with Martens not far off. Behrens quickly put space between the two though, and finished with a 1/1. Martens finished with a strong second with Wennlund in third. CYCLE USA, October 2012

“”I just wanted to have a little fun,” said Behrens. “I really did, too! The bike was so loud, I thought somebody was behind me. It was totally different from riding a modern bike, there was no suspension compared to mine, I had a lot of fun, though.” Wayne Welzien managed to get the first moto holeshot in +55, just to do it again. Pete Degrand and Robert Woldt had a nasty crash in the start and both were unable to restart. Fellow racer Michael Zimmerman pulled off to do what he could to help, showing true sportsmanship. Long time District 16 rider and Aztalan club member Degrand had flight for life called, and is still in the hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Pete. Welzen got the holeshot a second time with Todd White and Zimmerman close behind. On the second lap, Gary Behrens got around Allen Brhely to chase Steven Sorge. Behrens passed him before the end of the lap. White caught up to Zimmerman and the two were going bar to bar. Zimmerman didn’t give in. When they were at the plateau again, White managed to find a way around.

While this was going on, Behrens closed the gap between himself and the others up front. White caught Welzien in first and soon passed him and held onto first. Welzien crashed on the last lap just before the finish. It looked like Zimmerman was going to take second when Behrens snuck around him. Next moto, Brhely got the holeshot. White was right on his tail though. Behrens made short work of the two and took the lead. White and Zimmerman were bar to bar until the last lap when Zimmerman got around and finished second. In the 125cc Sr class, Eric Horcher was first through corner one with John Stewart and Nick Oman behind him. Horcher gapped the pack Marc Ottenad climbed into fourth. Ottenad got around Oman on the second lap and started to chase down Stewart. Frank Weiss caught up to the front after a pretty bad start, and made quick work of Stewart. On the fourth lap, Weiss got Ottenad and finished in second. Ottenad got the second moto holeshot with Stewart in tow. Horcher was right behind, and got around them both by the third lap. Weiss passed Stewart on the third lap. Horcher got the win with

Brian Martens fully participated with retro gear and everything in the EVO Twinshock class.


Ottenad in second, Weiss third, and Stewart in fourth. “My start first moto wasn’t the greatest,” said Weiss. “I guess I thought I was on a big bike and started in second gear. With my 200+ pounds, it didn’t work out so well. I’m really not used to riding a 125, but it is always fun! I would like to thank my wife first of all, for putting up with all we do, then Mike at Rock River Powersports and finally thanks to Karter and Jessica at Ride for all their support.” The track held up well throughout the day. It was a great day of racing and we hope to see everybody back next year.

at Lake County. He lives about twenty minutes away, and is easily considered the local favorite. McCabe took second followed by Hofmaster, Kamm and Kevin Markwardt took fifth. “I finally did it,” Lansing said from the podium. “I’ve been here so many years now and I ride well here every time. It feels great to finally get a win in front of all my family and friends!” Hofmaster took the early lead in the 450 Pro main, Martin, Browning, and McCabe followed. Hofmaster led for a few laps until Martin moved into the lead. Browning and McCabe pressured Hofmaster for second and both eventually moved by. Martin went down again. Browning assumed the lead and McCabe and Hofmaster battled until Hofmaster

he 27th annual Nielsen Enterprises Lake County Fair Stadium Motocross took place once again in front of a packed house over the two-night stretch. An increased purse of $7500, up from $4000 in 2010, brought out many top local riders and a few others from across the nation. Ohio’s Willy Browning made a last minute decision to come out as his usual travel partner Jeff Gibson decided to pass this year after winning three out of four main events last year. Browning and friend cruised out Wednesday morning and barely made it in time for practice. But once he was unloaded, he was committed, and maybe a little too much as you’ll find out in a bit. Browning opted to race the 250 and 450 Pro classes with a help of a borrowed 450 from Sportland2. He also brought out his own YZ125 for the new and resurrected 125 Open class and also suited up for MiniMoto open. After practice and some exciting heat races in front of the faithful Lake County crowd, it was time for the mains. Nielsen Enterprises/ Fly sponsored Ross Martin blasted out of the gate to the lead early in Wednesday’s 250 Pro final. Close behind was Sportland2/ FXR’s Kody Kamm, Rock River Yamaha’s Tommy Hofmaster and local boy Cameron Lansing. Lansing got by Hofmaster a few laps in while Martin and Kamm pulled away. On lap seven of the twelve, Martin lost his front wheel in a bowl turn and hit the deck. With Kamm following closely, he got sucked into the mess and went down too. Lansing inherited the lead and picked it up a notch, pulling away from the field. Storm Lake Honda’s Kurt McCabe had moved by Hofmaster for second a few laps later and Kamm rebounded to get back into the race in fourth. Martin pulled off as did Browning with bike issues. At the finish, it was Lansing with his first ever Pro win Ross Martin came out on Fire

Thursday winning both Pro classes.

went down in the rhythm section with a spectacular crash. Kamm came out of nowhere on his 250F to get by McCabe for second before the checkers flew. Browning took his first win of the night with Kamm, McCabe, California’s Daniel Blair and Maxx Malatia rounding out the top five. Central Illinois’ Nate Mclesse took both amateur wins on Wednesday in front of Brandon Nordmeyer and Logan Skaggs in the 250 final, and Logan Skaggs and Nielsen’s Brice Lorenz in the 450 main. He crashed out of practice on Thursday and did not compete. Kamm also crashed in practice on Thursday and did not compete and Hofmaster did not show up after his lackluster first night problems. Wisconsin’s Martin came out swinging on Thursday, after all, he led both finals on Wednesday and crashed out in both. He was determined not to let that happen again. He grabbed the start in 250 Pro and took off. Behind him was heat winner Daniel Blair, Wednesday’s winner Lansing, McCabe, Markwardt and Browning. McCabe and Lansing got by Blair early as Markwardt and Browning battled for fifth. Midway through the final, Browning’s right hand came off the throttle in the whoops and he took a hard left into Markwardt and went down violently. Markwardt barely saved it from crashing but he got passed by most of the field during the incident. Browning was out cold off the side of the track while the race continued. Martin ran away for his first win of the event while McCabe cruised across second for his third straight podium. Lansing finished on the podium again in third with Blair and Brandon Pope rounding out the top five. After four practices, heats and mains on Wednesday and four practices, heats and one main in the 90 degree heat on Thursday, it was determined that Browning just physically ran out of gas and was exhausted. He suffered a concussion from the crash and was definitely out for the remainder of the event. Martin came back to win a wire to wire victory in the 450


Pro final too. McCabe came across second with his fourth podium and was the most consistent over the two days with a 2-3-2-2. Blair came across third with Malatia and Lansing rounding out the top five. “I missed the event last year as I was busy with moving houses and stuff, but it sure feels good to be back here,” Martin explained. “I was mad about last night, but I just took what I learned and used it tonight for two big wins, so it feels good. I want to thank Ted Nielsen and Fly for taking care of me.” Sportland2’s Justin Wolf took the 250 amateur win over Austin Das and Nordmeyer, while Logan Skaggs took the 450 win over Lorenz and Nordmeyer. Alexander Nagy took the 125 Open win over Wolf and Molena, Illinois’ Brian Krohn. As always, the Schaefer Tracks crew did an excellent job and the huge Lake County crowd showed up as usual. The weather was great and rider turnout was good. We raised $670 for injured rider Matt Hopkins over the two nights and the after party at Austins Saloon down the road treated all in attendance with good times. The rumor of a mega-purse

Fox Valley Hare Scrambles Wedron, Illinois - Sept. 16 Photos by Jen & Don McDonald. Story help from Dan Siener

T

alk about an excellent day to race a Hare Scrambles. Fox Valley Off Road's last hare scramble of the season was just right. With the heat all summer it was fitting that the last race would be clear skies, rain on Thursday to make the trails good, and well 70's never hurts either. 65 Beginner class was bumped up to 45 minutes instead of the normal 30. The riders seemed to enjoy this and with a longer course it kept the racing tight and challenging. Many turns, even a few well placed small logs to get them accustomed to what is in store for their racing next year. Dead engine start to keep the first corner less congested and they were off with Jay Pelka (150) grabbing the holeshot, Blake Phelps (121) and Conner Mabus (109) were hot on Pelka's heals and they continued to dog him for half the race. Lap times came down as the kids burned in a line and figured out the fast way around the course. Pelka had a issue in a corner and fell which promptly gave Phelps and Mabus the open door, Robert Bland didn't hesitate to take advantage of the mishap either. Mabus and Phelps battled to end of the race, tired and sweaty Mabus pulled a fifteen second lead for the win. This same process was used in the 50cc classes, which running them 40 minutes was likely just a little to much. A couple Cobra's didn't like that extended time and started to do that "clutch slip routine". Nathan Young (12) got an "early jump" on the flag start. Young got to the check point first but it was all about the CRF Honda 50cc mounted Andrew Voegtle (94) taking control from that point on. New to the HS scene was mx rider Lucas Geistler, he and Young the only two Cobra riders out there battled most of the race... as they heated up it got interesting to see which one would have enough clutch left to finish the race... it was a 50cc high 26 CYCLE USA, October 2012

revving affair at the end! Jaycie Olson and Jason Bahnik rounded out the top five. Jason being on the dependable and bullet proof Pdub 50cc Yamaha. A couple of new 4-6 aged riders came out to

try their hand at racing. Comical to see the little guys come up to the scoring barrel and when asked "what is your number" they stop, lean forward and call it out, then take off and make another lap! We give that humor award to Landon Lee (92), in his first race ever!

Schuhler is twelve years old, Mika, sixty. Coming through the barrels on the first lap, Schuhler came through twenty-third, Mika second. Schuhler worked his way through all the 30C and +50 riders to get up to the front of that pack. Once he got on Mika's tail he and Mika passed each other

back several times and in the end the young gun prevailed. Schuhler will be a force to reckon with, along with his two older brothers Riley and Nolan who did very well in the Big B class in the afternoon race. Nolan won 201Open B. Riley finished fourth after shearing off his rear brake lever on a tree root in rock creek. The +50 group was huge today with sixteen riders, Wally Mika (619) did what he always does and dominated the field, but it looks like DJ Ryan and Rick Marht, Kevin Finefield along with Dave Moose have been picking up the speed and keeping him more in check lately. Tanner Whipple (129) rocked the 65cc class again. He has been pretty much unbeatable this season in the class. Garrett Ward found a nice size stick and went flipping down one of the downhills by the mx track making his day a little rough but recovered to second with Eli Otterbach third. Matt McDonald, Nick Blacklaw, AJ Waggoner, and John Conely locked into fierce but friendly battle for the first lap of the thumper class. Conely being a little chipper on the starting line was speaking of green machines and dependability.... Oh was that not the thing to do!!! 2/3rd's of the first lap is in, Conely crests one of the many steep hills on the course and catches the edge of a downed tree limb. Sheering off his chain guide and derailing his chain. No hope of getting it back to racing condition, and being on the complete other side of the property he had quite a push ahead of him. AA and A were much bigger then normal. Today twelve riders filled the line, and even though that isn't a huge amount, all are quality riders and when the up and coming A rider like Hall's Alec Perry pulls the holeshot, with AA riders Cody Bollinger, Ryan Length and the old man of the field Ryan Moss, the race was on! Lots of bangin and dicing as the pace of the afternoon big bike race is ex-


tremely fast early. Matt Dissell and Jeremy Smith put more excitement into the mix with their big four strokes, hammering through the woods. Travis Ward came through the barrels top ten, but off the pace somewhat. As the race wore on, Dissell did what he always does. He rode smooth and kept a good pace, but didn't show his hand til the start of the last fifteen minutes. Bollinger had pulled a pretty good lead but knows how Dissell rides and had to be thinking when is the push coming. The race was on, he could hear that big four stroke coming through the trees as he and Dissell fought for the lead. Quietly Ward was still running strong this race and started picking off AA riders towards the end of the race. As they came into the barrels ready hit it hard for that last lap and go for the gold, they were greeted with a checkered flag! Boy that was some upset boys right there, evidently the score girls and flag people didn't convey the start time correctly and the race was short six minutes! Now you would think that isn't a long time, but with 8-9 minute laps, these guys would have passed and raced each other hard for that last lap. In the end Bollinger won by eight seconds over Dissell. Ward took third overall and top A class

rider for the day, just edging out Jeremy Smith in the last section before the barrels. AA rider Austin Wells, "I got a terrible start. I wasn't really ready for the way Wardy used the flag. It also didn't help that my bike didn't fire on the first kick. I was stuck behind an A rider for the whole first section, letting the leaders get away. I finally got by him and blew a corner, letting Jeremy Smith by me. I followed him for a while but he irked away. A lap or so later, I reeled in Chris Huffman and made a quick pass, putting me in fifth. I charged as hard as I could without making any major mistakes. I eventually caught Ryan Moss, but as we caught lappers, he got away. I reeled him back in and finally got by with a lap and a half to go. I rode hard enough to stay ahead of him for the rest of the race, finishing fourth. Now that I think about it, I feel like it was a good ride, coming from where I did." The Quads lined up and after the flag dropped, Kevin Johnson jumped out and stole the holeshot. Right behind him was Tim Volski and Bryan Wittersheim. As they attacked the first downhill on the track, they started to see an extra challenge. The rock hard trails had been turned to a fine powder, and in some places six inches deep.

AA rider Chris Huffman with A class winner Travis Ward behind.

Wittersheim fell victim to a hidden rock in the dust and was treated to a trip over the bars ending his day. Johnson was still leading when his quad stopped, taking him out. This opened up the race for Brad Holder and Doug Yunker. The powder and dust made it hard on a few more of the riders as the hills were very slick and gave them a lot to deal with. Tim Volski made it to the top of the hills only to get stuck in the powder. This forced Volski to turn and go back down

for another try and caused him to lose valuable time on more than one lap. In the end Yunker, Holder, and Chase Pavelonis were the top three riders. Jim Swinson, Randy Harper, Ken Loews, and Frank Broll also in the race were having a blast, this group never ceases to show us how much fun racing can be, and still be not too competitive to get along all the rest of the time. Fun times for sure! Don't forget the last point paying event for the season is

Friebel wins Sugar Maple HS Hillpoint, Wisconsin - Sept. 16 By Dave Hollub

O

nce again the Madison Motorcycle Club stepped up and organized a District 16 Hare Scrambles at Sugar Maple MX. This year in addition to using the moto track and woods, they carved a huge maze into the surrounding cornfields. The terrain once again proved to be both technical and fun. Mother Nature also did her part by providing a perfect day. In Women Kimberly Kaczmarowski jumped out into the lead at the beginning and stayed in front of Amy Fischer to the finish. In 65cc Hunter Fischer was out front at the end of lap one and cruised to an easy vic-

tory, finishing four laps. Mark Backus was second and Tyler Lueschow third. In 85cc Sean Wolf was out front at the first corner, but by the time they came into the north woods section Collin Jahns was leading Dalton Peterson. Jahns lost traction in a powdery corner, leaving enough room for Peterson to jump out front. Peterson was able to knock off his next three laps in the fourteen minute range to stay out front and grab the win. After his win Peterson commented, “This was my first time racing a Hare Scrambles and it was fun. Some of the course was pretty hard. I want to thank my Mom and Dad for bringing me out to race.”

Kim Kaczmarowski won the Women’s class.

Brock Lueschow finished his first lap in 50cc just two seconds ahead of Erik Mikelson. Rex Valek was running third just ahead of Emily Backus. After three laps Mikelson got ahead of Lueschow but was only able to hold on for that lap before Mikelson came right back. As they came through scoring on lap fourteen Lueschow was once again leading. In a heartbreaker for Lueschow, he let off just enough on the final lap to let Mikelson slip by and cross the finish just two seconds ahead. In the +50 class Dennis Oakes moved up from a last

place start to the front by the end of lap one. Oakes stayed out front for the entire race. Charles Buse ran second and on lap two managed to put down the fast lap for the class with a 12:48. Jorge Caballero and Mike Jazwiecki finished 3-4. When C class fired up their bikes and headed down the start George Busse was out front with Matthew Sather and Stanley Ward close behind. Collin Buth didn’t waste any time as he quickly moved out front, then held onto the lead to the finish. Buth’s first three laps were the class fast laps with a 12:06 the

best. Busse was running second just ahead of Jay Mittelstaedt. Karl Lueschow knocked six seconds off his time on lap three and then followed up with another fast time on lap to move him ahead of Mittelstaedt and rounding the scoring tent on Busse’s rear fender. When Busse got caught up behind riders stuck in a narrow corner, Lueschow found a clean line and slipped into second. Buth after the race, “The race went really good. The track had a lot of variety and my bike was working great. I really loved the track, the moto track is fast and the fields were also. I picked quite a bit of corn it was hanging from the handlebars and the sprockets, just about everywhere. A couple of the hills were collecting a lot of people, and I just tried to pick a smart line. I just got ProAction as a sponsor and Southeast Sales has really been helping me a lot with the bike and bike set up. So thanks to both of them.” As the +40 class fired off the line Carl Jahns was first out and continued leading all race, finishing seven laps with a cumulative time over three minutes faster then the next bike. Joe Vadeboncoeur finished lap one in second, but was forced out on lap two when he flattened his front tire. Bryan Dixon slid into sec-

ond. Erik Adelsen was holding onto third until he got caught on lap four by William Ries. Then on lap five Buck Benson swept in

from the back of the pack and grabbed third to the finish line. Ries finished fourth and Adelsen was fifth. James Williams was out front of the B class at the start, but slipped back. Lucas Agnew finished out front on lap one and held on until on the final lap when Rory Agnew slipped past him and finished the race in first, only five seconds ahead of Lucas Agnew. Meanwhile Williams started his charge back through the pack managing to pick off four positions before lap four was over. Next up for Williams was getting by Steve Kaczmarowski on lap five and then he settled into third to the finish. Dylan Narel led the A class down the start, but before they headed off the moto track Jason Erdmann had blasted past and settled into the lead. John Buechner also slipped ahead of Narel on the first lap while Frank Caballero pressured him from behind. Caballero capitalized on Narel going down on lap two and then set his sights on chasing Buechner down. On lap four Caballero saw the opening and grabbed second then kept ahead of Buechner to the finish. Mat Herrington and Robert Kau were bar to bar around the holeshot corner in AA, but Jd Friebel was out front at the end of the first lap. Herrington was second while Mike Gilbertson (116) Pete Laubmeier held onto third. Both Eric

and Rick Kaczmarowski.


Mischler and Kau got past Laubmeier on lap two as they battled for position. Laubmeier seemed to be off his pace until he was able to capitalize on Kau having a problem on lap six that added almost five minutes to his lap. A re-energized Laubmeier chased down Mischler and by the end of lap seven he had re-taken third where he stayed to the finish. Friebel, “The day went pretty good. Once we got off the moto track I was sitting in second. Bobby Kau and Mischler got by me but then they slowed down because of Mat’s dust and I was able to get back in front of them. I just tried to ride smart and put my head down to put on a bit of a gap. I was just trying not to make any mistakes. We have run in the corn like that a couple of times but I was surprised it was pretty narrow, they didn’t knock as many rows down as usual. In the back section there was one tree root that sticks in my mind. It got dug out pretty bad and a lot of guys really had problems there, but otherwise it was a pretty fun track, a little faster than I like, but it was good. I’d like to thank Moose Racing, FMF, GPR, Vesra,

IMS, G2, Bell-Ray, Husky, Klim Helmets, UFO Plastics, Enduro Engineering, and Keytime Motorsports that I ride out of all the time.” The course layout by Madison Cycle Club had a diversity that all the riders enjoyed. Thanks to everyone that came out to race and especially a huge thanks to Brian Terry for cutting in the course.

Pleasure Riders Illini Series Event Cayuga Indiana - August 11/12 By Dave Henry, Photos by Phyllis Blume More photos at www.phyllisblume.com

A

ugust 11/12th marked rounds six and seven of the 2012 Championship Points Series presented by Apparel Unlimited at the Pleasure Riders facility near Cayuga, IN, and Sunday marked round two of the Illini Super Series with Kawasaki and Yamaha contingency. The weather was great, and the racing action was even better. In the Open and 250A classes, there were great battles between Copeland Trucking rider Blake Copeland and KTM mounted David Howard. In Open A, Howard kept Copeland in his sights, but it was Copeland taking the overall with the 1-1 sweep. In 250A, the battle was even better, as Howard’s 250cc 2 stroke KTM was a little better match for Copeland’s Honda CRF250R. Copeland won moto one, but Howard came back after a

#173 Kerber Paxton won the 250C class. #374 Lucky Favre and #451 Lonnie Estes work to beat him to the first corner.

Copeland fall to take the win. Keeze Carver came home in third with a 3-3. Open B and 250B saw new winners for the first time this year at Pleasure Riders as local hotshot Dakota Blakeney suffered bike problems. Moto one in each of the classes saw Blakeney put on a clinic and run away with the wins. However, moto two saw Blakeney pushing his broken Honda off of the track. In Open B, local Austin Shelton was ready to pounce on the opportunity and take the win. Shelton went on to score a 2-1 for the overall. In 250B it was newly married, Ryan Padgett on is YZ250 two stroke going for the overall. The C classes delivered great racing as always as three riders stood out in 250C. At the end of the day we had a three-way tie for the overall between the Husky of Paxton Kerber, the shop bigwheel.com Honda of Chance Trigalet and Indiana’s Jared Keller. Kerber

and Keller shared moto wins, with third place finishes in the opposite motos. Trigalet was consistent on the day with seconds, but that would guarantee him no better than second overall. The second moto told the tale and it was Kerber bringing home the win. In Open C, it was again Kerber taking the overall with a 2-1. The first moto saw a great start by Robert Moody on his YZ450, and he motor on for five consistent laps and take the win. Moto two was a different story as he went down and could only manage to come back up to a fourth place finish. Finishing behind Kerber was Indiana’s Torrey Wallace with a 3-2. Moody dominated +30B/C with a moto sweep, followed by Jason Gerling. In 14-24 it was a battle between Open B winner Austin Shelton and 250B winner Ryan Padgett. The two swapped moto wins with the nod going to Shelton with a 2-1 score. In +25 and +30A, Martinsville, IL rider Kirk Monk put on a show and ran away with the wins. Monk was styling over the big finish line jump with nice whips and really feeling it. In the upper age classes the man to beat was Halls Husky rider, Don Largewho scored wins in +45 and +50. Schoolboy and 125 was dominated by Honda mounted Parker Smith. Smith went on to score all four motos. In the second moto of the 125 class, Trigalet kept Smith honest, but it was Smith taking the win. The Mini classes are often just as exciting to watch as the big bikes at Pleasure Riders. In 50Jr, Colson Crouch took the win with a 1-1 sweep. In 50Sr, it was Cobra mounted Caiden Gerling dominating both motos. Gerling, known to be an exciting rider to watch, was the only 50 rider to land the big finish line step-up table top jump. However, in the second moto Gerling went down hard attempting to clear it, but had a large enough lead to not lose the moto.


In 65Jr, KTM mounted Braiden Walters came out on top with a 1-1 performance over Caiden Gerling. In 65S, it was local boy Jacob McGee on his KTM taking the sweep with a 1-1 over Landon Noggle on a Kawasaki. In 85Sr, the battle was a great one as we witnessed four riders battling it out for the win. In the first moto, it was Kawasaki mounted Hunter Wilson taking the win, with Taiga Judd, Gage Noblitt, and Noah Watts behind. Watts was definitely not pleased with his first moto results, and he looked for redemption in moto two. Watts came out on fire and went on to take the win. Coming home again in second was Judd, with Wilson in third. With his consistent finishes, Judd took the overall with a 2-2. It was a great weekend of racing at Pleasure Riders. It all started on Friday with the 8th annual Georgetown Fair, continued here Saturday and then wrapped up with today’s great race. Several families hung out all weekend, and their riders who raced all three days will be treated to a Free race at the club’s upcoming October 20/ 21 weekend. These October dates will mark the end of the season for Pleasure Riders, and the 21st will be the final round of the Illini Super Series. On January 19th all of the class champions will be crowned at the awards banquet to be held in Danville, IL.

Great racing at Fun Valley Montezuma - September 2 By Missi Thede

F

ollowing an overcast morning practice, the sun broke out for the beginning of an exciting race day at Fun Valley. With the new black dirt well groomed into the track, it was sure to be a great event. In the Quad C class #171 Josh Beukema took the holeshot with #529 Cole Borowiak in second and McCain Richards third. Beukema had a setback in which Borowiak stepped into the lead with Richards in second and finished off moto one. In the second moto Richards led the pack with Borowiak and Beukema giving chase. Beukema made his way past Borowiak and tried to catch Richards for the lead but Heated racing in 250B. #808 Nick Ryan, #411 Cole Hood and #114 Chase Conis.

couldn’t get it done. Overall for the day was Richards taking the big win ahead of Borowiak and Beukema. In the 14-24B/C class #921 Dylan Busby took the holeshot with #215 Drew Peterson, Kevin Goette and Marissa Busby flying over the double-doubles behind him. Dylan dropped behind the others soon after and had some ground to make up. Peterson had the lead and didn’t want to give it up to anyone. By the third lap Dylan Busby made it up to Goette through the double-doubles and got the edge he needed to make it past him making it up to second with Peterson left to contend with. During the last lap Peterson had a problem dropping back to fourth as Dylan Busby succeeded to pull off the first moto win with Goette taking second and Marissa Busby third. In the second moto Dylan Busby led the pack ahead of Peterson, Marissa Busby and Goette through the uphill whoops section. Busby kept a healthy lead along with Peterson. Goette pulled away from Marissa Busby, leaving her in fourth for the second moto finish. Overall in was Dylan Busby, Goette, Peterson and Marissa Busby.

Excitement in the 250B class had #411 Cole Hood in the lead with #114 Chase Conis and Nick Ryan side by side after the start as Logan Kentner held onto fourth. Conis pulled ahead of Ryan and passed Hood for the lead and finished off the first moto still ahead of Hood and Ryan. In the second moto Ryan had a narrow lead on Hood with Conis right on Hood’s tail going through the uphill whoops. Josh Crawford was also tight in the mix. Hood kept the heat on Ryan with Ryan feeling the pressure with each corner and jump. Side by side up the uphill triple, Hood pulled away from Ryan going toward the downhill tabletop. Conis also made it past Ryan. Hood stretched out his lead and took the second moto win, taking the overall for the day as well. Overall finishes were Hood, Conis, Ryan and Kentner. With a fantastic weekend and getting closer to the end of the season, things are just getting more exciting at Fun Valley!

Perfect night in Cedar Rapids Cedar Rapids, Iowa - September 1 By Tracy Petrak Photos by Missi Thede

A

s everyone entered the pit gates on for another “Night Under the Lights” race, everyone could feel the excitement all around. The weather was still warm, and the racing was hot all night. It was another great evening in Cedar Rapids. The gate dropped and off the line were the 50cc riders. This upcoming class was led by Wyatt Gibson from start to finish, and everyone seemed to drop into line and hold their spots to the end. After another great moto, first across the line was Wyatt Gibson followed by Brayden Baars and Taylor Lee. Carter Capper finished fourth as Kaden Leichty grabbed fifth and Dawson Roskop was sixth. With seven Quad 50’s on the gate, the motors revved and they moved like the recess

#411 Cole Hood and Taylor Simons put on a great race in Open B.

bell rang at school. The quads went scooting and soon the leader was known. #8 Nate Thompson took to the front of the pack and kept it through the night. Not far behind were Cody Spiegelhalter and Camden Buffington pushing them both. Again, we should mention some of the best racing doesn’t happen for just the first place positions. In fourth Lauren Wilson pushed as Logan Rathbun came in fifth. Chase Richards secured sixth ahead of Austin Kemp. It was a great night to watch the young talent and all should be recognized. Hawkeye Downs final race of the season will be Oct. 13, awards night.

Wyatt Gibson took first overall in the 50 Mini class.

Carlson crushes the Clash Millville, Minnesota - Aug. 26 By Rolfe Otterness

T

he season at Spring Creek is starting to wind down, but before summer went away, the Viking Clash took place once again to put an exclamation point on the season. Big winner of the day had to be Dalton Carlson who grabbed the glory in the Open A class, topping a very tough field to grab the cash. Zach Williams had a great day also, topping the 250A class as well as 14-24A. Other riders not in it for the money but snaring big trophies were guys like Cole Marsolek, who mastered the smaller mini classes with three wins, Gage Fisher who took similar control in the larger mini classes and Henry Miller who was flying in the B classes. The lure of cash brought in a lot of riders in the A classes and the chance of humungous trophies drew riders in for the other classes, totaling over 500 entries for the day. The track shaped up nicely with decent weather. The field of riders entered in the Open A class included: Dalton Carlson-a top local rider who has moved on the competing on the National circuit, Zach Williams- fresh off an A-class win at Lorretta Lynn’s, Jesse Wentland- another winner at LL, Monster Energy’s Tucker Hibbert and a bunch of other riders looking for some glory and cash.

Carlson’s reflexes served him well as he flung his YZ from the gate into the lead of the first moto. Williams and Wentland also gated well. Carlson inched away to about a four second lead over Williams after about the second lap, then maintained it to the checkered. Wentland stayed within a second or two of Williams for most of the moto. Devin Reed from Iowa ran a nice moto to take fourth and Jeremy Ledin held fifth under pressure from Ty Tyrrell. Tucker Hibbert dropped out early in the moto with bike problems. Carlson once again blitzed the start in moto two which was lucky for him as he missed out on a massive crash that collected a bunch of riders. Wentland was one of the riders who was out of contention. Tyrrell slotted into second as Carlson focused on stretching out his lead. Mitch Gaylord and Brendan Grgurich were running 3-4 in the early going, but Williams was on the move after a troubled start and by lap three he had dispatched both of them. Williams had to work on Tyrrell for a couple of laps, but he did get by to secure second. The moto ended with Carlson nearly fifteen seconds ahead of Williams and Tyrrell. Gaylord captured fourth over Luke Peters and Grgurich. Tyrrell roosted to the front of the first 250A moto with his two stroke YZ pulling strongly. He led until nearly the end of the

second lap with Clarion Chapiewski and Williams in close pursuit. Unfortunately Tyrrell’s bike gave out with a huge cloud of smoke billowing out of the exhaust. Williams took charge of the moto, knifing inside Chapiewski near the finish line to grab the lead, and held strong to win the moto. A good battle to the checkered featured Jeremy Ledin, Nick Jackson and Luke Peters jamming right up to the end over third place. Chapiewski shot out front for the early lead in moto two, ahead of Ledin, Williams, Peters and Jackson. Williams got down to work and knifed to the lead on the next lap, then began to surge away from the pack. Chapiewski had to deal with pressure from Jackson and David Gassin for a couple of laps, with Gassin finally coming out on top to grasp second at the flag. Chapiewski, Jackson and Peters trailed him across the line in short order. Nolan Heppner launched into the lead of the first 14-24C moto and left the field behind. Chase Becker made a couple of passes and moved into second by

the end of lap two. Behind him a battle developed over third with Devin Donaho, David Fischer and Austin Kienast involved. When the flagman finally waved the moto to an end, Kienast secured third with Donaho, Collin Reinhart and Fischer right on his rear fender as they ended the moto. Kienast grabbed the holey in the second moto but Heppner got by shortly. Heppner took off to “win” the moto, but grabbed a DSQ for riding the wrong bike. Becker led the way across the finish line leading a three way battle between himself, Kienast and Fischer. That gave Becker the overall win for the day. Isaac Geiger and Reinhart wrapped up fourth and fifth just a bit off the pace. Josh Fedder jumped to the lead in the first moto of the 65cc 7-9 class. Gavin Janovsky and Dillon Nelson provided pursuit. Janovsky put strong pressure on Fedder and it became apparent that one of those two would take the win. Janovsky grabbed the lead for a bit but Fedder came back to secure the win. Nelson

Pine Ridge Pro-Am A Winner Athelstane, Wisconsin - September 2 By Cody Wills

I

t’s not often you get to see full gates in A classes at local races. This the case, I’m always excited to go to a ProAm and fortunately Pine Ridge has been having two a year for the last couple years. It’s always nice to see how the local riders do when the gates are full. I’m sure a lot of riders get excited about these events when pulling through the gates. Cool thing is most of the other classes have a bunch of extra riders as well. Moto one of Vet B had Pete Emme break in his brand new 2013 Sportland 2 KX450 by coming around the first turn first, followed by Shawn Tovar and all the other riders. Tovar worked his way into the lead after lap one followed by the very quick Nicholas Hanson. Hanson made his move to the lead on lap two, and checked out. Tovar ran into some trouble and fell back to sixth by the end of the moto. Skip Schneider quietly worked his way into second with Seth Galler picking up third. Moto two saw some new faces up front and also another familiar one, Emme again picked up the holeshot, but right alongside was Jon Wilson on his Donahue YZ450. Shawn Tovar was up front to but went down hard in the second corner. Wilson had a bad start in moto one, but made sure he put this

awesome start to work! He checked out to a pretty comfortable lead early. Two guys who didn’t get a good start, Nick Hanson and Skip

Schneider, were coming through the pack, swapping spots as they did. As the laps were coming to a end so was Wilson’s stamina, he

Nate Laporte was on it in the Pro-Am classes.


came across the white flag with Hanson and Schneider on his heels. Wilson held the lead till they went down the back section. When they came back out Hanson was in the lead followed by Schneider. “I just ran out of juice on that last lap, and almost went over the bars in the back section, and they just got by me” Wilson said after the race. Hanson went 1-1 for the overall ahead of Schneider. The consistant 5-4 finishes by Jake Gervais got him third overall and Wilson’s 9-3 score was good for fourth overall. The first ProAm class of the day was 250A, and Jeremiah Lemke got out front early with Andy Lieders. Those two had a couple laps to themselves out front. Nate Laporte got tied up with riders in the first turn and started mid-pack, but it didn’t take long for him to start making quick work of riders, making his way inside the top five with three laps to go. Lemke and Lieders started to slip back as the old trusty riders like Laporte, Dustin Pulley, and Vaughn Mays moved in. Cody Vanbuskirk was also in the top five. By the last lap Laporte found himself in the lead with Pulley second and Lemke holding onto and impressive third, Vanbuskirk fourth, and Mays picked up fifth. “I got caught up in the pile up and worked my way up from there trying to make passes quick cause I knew I only had eight laps. Before I knew it I was in the lead,” said Laporte about his moto. In moto two Laporte found himself with the lead and checking out. Sam Long, Kevin Markwardt, and David Gassen from California were in the lead pack this time. Pulley and Mays were up there again as well. It became a three rider battle for second as Mays went down leaving Markwardt, Pulley, and Long in the battle that ended up turning into a fight for the lead! Laporte had bike troubles in the downhill section. It seemed as if the bike just shut down. Within the last two laps the lead went from Long to Pulley to Markwardt. By the end it looked as if Pulley did the math in his head and backed off a bit

Pine Ridge crew kept up the to coast in for the Overall with a changing conditions. The track 2-4. Markwardt won the moto, stayed just rough enough to but his sixteenth in moto one make different lines and create only gave him ninth overall. great racing to suit all the riders Cody Vanbuskirk’s 4-5 got him in every class.

At the halfway point, Laporte had pulled a four second lead with Maier making the pass on Pulley. Mays was into fifth behind Vanbuskirk. White flag lap saw Mays in fourth. Pulley hold on for third. Moto two had Maier get out front quick, riding a borrowed Southeast Sales KTM 350. Laporte was close behind. They both had to make quick work of Ryan Gilbert who had grabbed the holeshot. Also making his way to the front was Dylan Ziolkowski, getting around Gilbert. By lap three Laporte had made it to the lead, as Maier was keeping him honest. Ziolkowski fell victim to David Gassin who again quietly moved his way up to third. Gassin’s 6-3 was good enough for third overall. Vaughn Mays picked up fourth overall. The weekend came to close Southeast Sales KTM rider Nate Laporte leaving with another weekend of high confidence, and with people talking about his winning all but one moto. With the huge turnout the track got rough and the Pete Emme had excellent starts in +30B.

D22 Racing back at Sully Sully, Iowa - August 25 By Missi Thede

D

istrict 22 racing was back at Sully this year promoted by Riverside Raceway. It was an exciting day being back at Moto-X Raceway! You could sense the anticipation of all the riders during practice, waiting to hit the track. The first race on the gate lined up for the +30B/C riders, and as the gate dropped they bulleted toward the first corner. Mark Busby took the early lead with Jason Byers in second as Michael Tremmel and Craig Dostal were right there as well. Throughout the first lap Tim Mohror gained on Dostal and made the pass for fourth, setting his sites on Tremmel. With the last lap Byers had a setback to fourth, which moved Tremmel to second and Mohror to third. Second moto Byers took the lead with Tremmel second and Mohror in third. Mohror took over the second spot. Tremmel dropped back a couple spots with Busby and Dostal moving up. Mohror was closing in the gap on Byers and on the last lap Byers was feeling the heat. Mohror made the move on Byers and wasn’t going to let him get back the lead before the finish. Tremmel got past Dostal and was on a mission, moving into third past Busby to re-assume his lost positioning for the finish. Overall finishes for the day were Mohror, Tremmel, Busby and Byers. Getting the opening lead in +40A was Robbie Palmer and

Quad A and Quad B/C Production start.

Daniel Breeden. Breeden was on a mission to get past Palmer. With each corner approach it was close – side-by-side action until Breeden managed to get past him. Breeden tried to pull away but Palmer was right back on him for the challenge. Palmer got past him again for the lead as neither one let up keeping the gap tight until the end when Palmer held on. Second moto Breeden took the opening lead with Palmer not far behind. Again, the great competition between the two made for an exciting race. Palmer continued on Breeden’s tail doing his best to close the gap between them, with rain now adding to the challenge. With persistence, Palmer made it past around and finished with the win. Overall it was Palmer, Breeden, Robin Graham and Mark Baumert. Eleven riders in +40B/C were led by Nicole Weis early. Then Jeffrey Fisher led with Weis for part of the first lap be-

fore Weis retook the lead. Lauren Vanwyk worked into third with Gary Schultz in fourth. Fisher moved up again, then pulled away from Weis, picking up the pace. Weis now had to deal with Schultz on her tail. Schultz and Vanwyk made their way past Weis to take the second and third spot finishes for the first moto. Second moto had Fisher in the lead with Weis in second and Jerry Denniston in third. Fisher
