Lena Double-Header Trials Lena, Illinois - August 11-12 By Kathy Haselton Photos by Nancy Littlefield

T

he weeks leading up to the annual trial in Lena saw the temperatures hovering in the 90’s and even 100’s. Thankfully, the heat wave subsided in time for the two day trials event. The temperature on both days of riding stayed comfortably in the 70’s. A perfect weekend for riding! An added bonus was the fantastic meteor shower that many riders were able to see as they camped under the stars between days of riding. Landowner Gary Lingbeck welcomed 35 riders on day one of riding and 33 riders on the second. The beautiful rolling hills are one of the most picturesque places to ride in all of Northern Illinois. Gary has hosted the NITRO sponsored event for many years, and it is a

favorite amongst riders. The two day event featured eight sections each day, completely different each day. The sections were laid out throughout twenty acres of land. The loop itself was expansive, at two miles. Riding the loop gave riders a challenge while moving from section to section, as well as the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful landscape. Each of the sixteen sections offered a multitude of challenges that tested even the most skilled riders. Rocks, logs, creeks, hills, and tight turns kept the rider’s attention at all times. But the challenge of riding the well laid out sections is what keeps riders coming back year after year to Lena. NITRO is very fortunate to have an influx of young and talented riders making their way up though the classes. Brothers Luke and Mitchell Littlefield, brother and sister Ryan and

Intermediate rider Brandon Prouty.

Kailey Rivenburgh, Ryan Rohrschneider, Greg Sassi, and Sean Mullarkey are already making a name for themselves in trials. First year rider Kaily Rivenburgh has quickly moved up from Novice to the Intermediate class, and is doing an outstanding job there. Kailey finds riding nerve-wracking at times, but says riding with the guys gives her great motivation to keep working hard. For additional information on trials riding, please visit our club website at nitrotrials.com.

DeGross Tops Red Wing Red Wing, MN - July 14 & 15 By Mike Nelson

Z

ach DeGross put together an awesome weekend of climbing at the Indianhead Motorcycle Club’s double header hillclimb on their newly reworked hill in Red Wing Minnesota. Being a border town, points were awarded for both Districts 16 and 23 each day. The new configuration of the hill stretched the length to 370 feet with three quick jumps in the first 100 feet, followed by a long steep run split with two more jumps to get over the top. Over 250 entries showed up from all over the Midwest to enjoy the two days of competition. DeGross absolutely dominated the weekend, taking a total of seven first place trophies over the two days. His real strength was on his Honda in the 600cc class where he topped the class

of over twenty riders, and set the fastest time both days with times of 8.793 seconds on Saturday over Steve Cain and Luke Parmeter, and 8.205 seconds on Sunday, edging out national champion Logan Cipala. At the end of each day he hopped on it one more time for the King of the Hill challenge, earning more big hardware ahead of Marcus Winch Saturday, and Jacob Prebe on Sunday. All of that was backed up with a sweep in the Open Stock class and a win Sunday with his first run in the Open class. DeGross took his worst finish in the 4-Stroke class on Saturday ending up fourth but pulled that up to a second place for Sunday behind Luke Parmeter who won the class both days on his big KTM. In the youth classes there were three riders that swept their classes. Kyren Sunken took the Micro-Mini title both days on

footage with a bit of excitement on his first run Sunday morning. Sunken was nearly at the final jump when he got turned sideways and then things got a little wild as he ended up turned down the hill. With the brakes applied, the young man was accelerating straight down the hill toward certain disaster. Mitch on the hill crew ran out across the hill and stood in front of this young man and his machine and made a saving tackle just before he would have slammed into the top of the fourth jump which would have almost certainly sent him for a painful tumble the full length of the rest of the hill. Sunken was shaken up a bit, but uninjured, and like a trooper came back and made his second run and completed his sweep of the class over Bodee O’Neil. In the 65cc class riders started to make their way over the top with Braiden Henry leading the way both days with times of just over sixteen seconds on Saturday. Casey Paider was the third rider to double up wins in the youth classes. With only about half of the riders in the Mini Jr. class making it over the


top, Paider led the way getting over the top on all four of his runs and turning in a best time of 13.860 seconds on his final run Sunday. There were several other riders that swept their classes over the weekend including Luke Parmeter who rode his big KTM to wins in the 4-Stroke and 750cc classes. Also, in true family sporting tradition, Mike Wood and his daughter, Casey each topped a class for both days. Mike won the Senior class, needing only one run each day to beat the other fourteen riders. Casey took the Women’s class both days with her fastest time of 10.798 seconds coming on her second run Saturday to top the Prebe cousins, Jessica and Gabrielle. Casey also had a little

fun knocking around the boys in the 125cc class on Saturday. After having some trouble on her first run she found a smooth line for her second run and edged out Luke Cipala with a time of 11.799 seconds for the win. All the riders did a great job of being ready and the club worked hard to move things along to get all the riders up the hill twice each day and still finish in time for supper both days. Thanks go out to all for putting on a great show and a really fun and safe event.

D15 State Series Kicks-off

#60 Brandon Schneider went on to win both motos as #47 Mason Brown went 3-2 for second overall in the thirty-one rider 250C class.

North Webster, Indiana - August 12 By Becky Stichter

eads Racing Unlimited hosted round one of the D15 State Races at the Trojan track this weekend. With a well groomed track, and perfect weather, the 220 plus entries couldn't have asked for better conditions. The 250C riders, with thirty-one on the gate, were the first group on the track. In moto one, Mason Brown grabbed a bike’s length advantage by going tight to the inside of the first corner. Brown set the pace, but had Levi Johnson, Elijah Labordus, and Brandon Schneider pressuring hard from behind. Johnson, mounted on a Kawasaki, passed Brown in the first lap. Brown stayed right on Johnson's back tire as Labordus and Schneider were battling hard for third place. Schneider was relentless, and worked his way around Labordus and set his eyes on Brown. Schneider got around Brown and then Johnson only had a small lead ahead of the others, and had to feel the pressure. Riding nearly bike to bike, Johnson and Schneider headed into the woods section. When the two came out of the woods, Schneider was the new leader, and then went on for the win. In the second moto Brown again took the lead out of the gates. Schneider was feeling hungry again and started eating up the track, eventually passing Brown. Johnson and Jacob White were riding bike to bike behind Brown. White made a move in the corner after the tank step-down, and got past Johnson. Schneider went on to win again, followed by Brown. There were some fast Open A riders today, and they had some great races. Michael Bender was out of the gates first, closely followed by Taylor Routh, James Thompson, 8

Schneider stepped it up and worked his way into second place and pressured Robins hard the entire moto, but Robins maintained his lead and took another win. Elijah Labordus, of the 125cc 2-stroke class had his Yamaha humming as he came out of the gates with the lead in moto one. Willie Patton and Jagg Nunez came out of the gates next. Patton kept riding faster and worked his way around Labordus. Labordus and Nunez were bike to bike battling for second, while Jordan Parmley, Even Foster, and Chris Kirkendall fought hard for fourth overall.

It wasn't long before George and Gibson were riding bike to bike, with Iden and Trevor Colip right behind. Gibson passed George, then sped away. While George pursued Gibson, Colip and Kaden Polito were coming up fast from behind; coming after George. Polito was just starting to make his move, when he crashed. Colip went on to pass George, but wasn't able to catch Gibson. In the second moto George, Polito, and Colip were the leaders out of the gate. Colip took the lead, getting a lot of pressure from Polito and Gibson. As Gibson worked his way to the lead, Polito had some difficulties again, and fell back. George stepped it up, and rode past Colip as Gibson took another win. In moto one of the 250B class, Dalton Packard, Nicholas Craig, and Alix Edsall led the way out of the gates. Willie Pat-

ton, who had been riding in fourth place, decided he was done following people, and started passing riders. Patton successfully passed everyone to take the lead... finally getting around Packard after a close battle. Behind the two leaders, Craig and Scott Swinford had a good run going on for third that went right to moto’s end. In moto two, Patton, Packard, Swinford, and Edsall were the fastest off the start. Edsall quickly grabbed the lead and on his Yamaha. Patton and Packard battled it out again for second place as the order held all the way to the finish. Kraye Loft, mounted on a Suzuki, took the holeshot in moto one of the 85cc (12-15) class. Joshua Taylor and Isaiah Shelton were only a few bike lengths behind. Taylor pressured Loft most of the moto, but then went down, and lost several positions. Shelton moved into second, but wasn't able to catch the speeding Loft. In moto two, Austin Griffis took the holeshot closely followed by Shelton. Taylor and

Willie Patton swept both motos of 125cc 2-stroke.

Jake Haney were next in line. Griffis rode solid knowing that Shelton wasn't far behind. Taylor, who had been riding in third,

worked his way past Shelton, then put a lot of pressure on Griffis. Behind the three leaders, Loft, was passing riders one by

In the Women's 12+ class, Dian Manns and Madison Johnson battled for the win. Manns led early, but Johnson worked her way around to take the win. Manns rode in second, with Megan Moan coming up strong from behind. In the second moto, Manns seemed to have a better feel for the track, and rode even better. Johnson challenged Manns, but couldn't get past her this time. There were a lot of good races today that were exciting to watch.

Parmeter Wins Big at Hixton Hixton, Wisconsin – July 29 By Rose Dorcey

C

ompeting on a hill that was slightly different than the hillclimb held at CMJ Raceway in June, Luke Parmeter came away a big winner as he took home wins in the 250, 600, and 750cc classes, as well as the prestigious King of the Hill crown. The top half of the 280-foot hill had been recently groomed, with tall grass removed to allow competitors to see every bump, rut, and rock, and what they had to contend with to make it to the top. Much needed rain as the event got under way altered the hill conditions further. Parmeter noted that the right side

seemed as if it would be faster this time, and it was just the insight he needed to take home the wins. His 250 class, first-round run of 7.87 was the best of the twenty riders in the class, edging out Marcus Winch’s second place time of 7.96. In the 600 class Parmeter stopped at the 100-foot mark after his KTM 560 was running roughly, putting him near last after the first round. Corey Oneil led the class after round one at 7.68. Looking his bike over between rides, Parmeter could find

nothing wrong, the bike ran perfectly on his second run, and he came from behind to win the class with a 7.44. Jared Gitter, who won this class at the June event, finished second at 7.56, while Oneil’s first round time was good for third. Parmeter faced stiff competition in the 4stroke class from a viable Illinois opponent Eric Wheelwright. “Eric and I went back and forth quite a bit today,” Parmeter said. “He’s fast everywhere, but he has this hill dialed.” Wheelwright’s ride in the 4-stroke class was so dialed that he beat out Parmeter by two-one thousandths of a second, at 7.637 compared to Parmeter’s 7.639. Wheelwright went on to take more share of the gold, with wins in the 200, 450, and Senior classes. Wheelwright’s blazing ride of 7.403 on his CRF450 secured not just the 450 class win, but also the Fastest Time of the Day award. Zach DeGross took the Open class win with his first round time of 7.61, but not without a scare from Jared Gitter. DeGross’ time looked like it would hold through both rounds of competition until Gitter set a 7.64 in round two. With a look of relief when Gitter’s time was announced, DeGross was happy to claim the win. Dave Jelinek was third. Mini class racing is always exciting where we see glimpses of our hillclimbing future. Times in the nine-second range proved that these kids have been practicing, and their parents have the bikes finely tuned. In Mini Sr., all of the riders bettered their times in round two, making for good back-and-forth racing. Luke Cipala held the lead after round one. In round two, three riders bettered his time, Morgan Wheelwright (9.22), Nathan CYCLE USA, September 2012 11


Zach DeGross won both of his Open classes.

Prebe (9.33), and Jason Laven (9.45), so Cipala had some work to do. He topped the hill in 8.66 seconds to come back for the win, the only rider in the class to clock a time in the eights. Familiar family hillclimb names like Prebe, Cipala, Piontek, and Wood, among others, competed in the 125 class and provided excellent competition and thrills for the spectators, but it was Andy Eichinger of Wisconsin Rapids who came out on top. His 8.75 edged out Nathan Prebe’s 8.82 for the win. Morgan Wheelwright was third at 8.86. The end-of-the-day King of the Hill runoff, for the event’s ten fastest riders, provided more heated, but friendly competition between Eric Wheelwright and Parmeter. Going into the King of the Hill, the middle line wasn’t fast enough for many riders. “After watching Eric pull another 7.4 on the right side, I decided to try the same line,” Parmeter explained. “I knew he would be tough to beat but I hoped for the best.” Parmeter’s best was a 7.44 to Wheelwright’s 7.48. “I didn’t have the best ride,

but somehow it was quick enough,” Parmeter said, “it didn’t feel that fast.” Results: 50cc: 1.Cody Paider 2.Bodee Oneil 3.Mason Sullivan 65cc: 1.Casey Paider 2.Davis Sunken 3.Braiden Henry Mini Jr: 1.Davis Sunken 2.Casey Paider 3.Braiden Henry Mini Sr: 1.Luke Cipala 2.Morgan Wheelwright 3.Nathan Prebe 125: 1.Andy Eichinger 2.Nathan Prebe 3.Morgan Wheelwright 200: 1.Eric Wheelwright 2.Bradley Marking 3.Jeff Jack 250: 1.Luke Parmeter 2.Marcus Winch 3.Andy Eichinger 450: 1.Eric Wheelwright 2.Zach DeGross 3.Marcus Winch 600: 1.Luke Parmeter 2.Jared Gitter 3.Corey Oneil 750: 1.Luke Parmeter 2.Charlie Cain 3.Nate Simenec Open: 1.Zach DeGross 2.Jared Gitter 3.Dave Jelinek 4-Stroke: 1.Eric Wheelwright 2.Luke Parmeter 3.Aaron Prebe Women: 1.Jessica Prebe 2.Gabrielle Prebe 3.Casey Wood Senior: 1.Eric Wheelwright 2.Mike Wood 3.Corey Oneil Super Sr: 1.Brian Kinney 2.Tim Cain 3.Jeff Jack 400 Stk: 1.Colton Pohl 2.Jeff Jack 3.Daniel Shaha Open Stk: 1.Zach DeGross 2.Lemar Hines 3.Kurt Hause ATV: 1.Zach Diercks 2.Steve Atherton, Sr. 3.Joel Diercks King of the Hill: 1.Luke Parmeter 2.Eric Wheelwright 3.Marcus Winch

The large Open C class through the first turn.

Byron, Illinois - August 5 By Josh Rud More photos at www.ShiftOnePhoto.com

T

his Sunday the fifth of August marked the eighth round of the Nuclear Series at Motosports Park in Byron, Illinois. We had some amazing weather and everyone was just getting back from Loretta’s, there was a great turnout as always! Lining up early was 85Jr, and right off the line Eddie Norred took the holeshot trailed by Lucas Filips, Kaleb Fulscher and the rest of the young speed demons. Right away Noah Taylor came around the outside to take over third from Fulscher. Coming down the hill Talyor found his way around Filips to take over second to set the final order for the top three as it held to the end. After a little juggling, the second moto finished with the same top three riders. 85Sr was up next as Jesse Aitchison took the holeshot. Karson Kokotan was right on Aitchison’s heels trying to find a line around, meanwhile behind them Joren Walthers took third going up the hill to the back of the track. Chase Boykin was now in fourth. After two laps of fighting Kokotan got by Aitchison through the sand section, which has been transformed into a rhythm section from the whoops it was earlier in the season. Kokotan was able to hold onto the lead while Aitchison took second and Taiga Judd got around Walthers on the last lap to grab third. In the second moto Kokotan won again taking the overall, Judd came in second for second overall and Walthers finished third. 250A delivered some great action as always. Joseph Dalzell took the lead off the line in the first moto as Vaughn Mays and Zach

Coons were already fighting to move up. Coons was going back and forth with Mays the entire race, trying to get in front of him. Coming down the hill on the white flag he made his way into second and held it to the checkered flag. In the second moto Dazell took another win to lock up the overall. Coons once again finished second as Daniel Sanders beat out Mays for third, taking third overall as well (43). The biggest gate I have seen at Byron in a while was Open C. Thirty-four riders lined up, packing every gate for one crazy start.

The gates dropped and they all flooded into the first turn, bar to bar. Billy Mccauley got out in front of the mob to take the holeshot with Paxton Kerber and Bryce Olson making the most of the clear track. Jake Peterson wasn’t impressed and quickly moved made up a lot of ground, moving all the way into second place. Coming down the hill to the finish line Peterson and Kerber had gotten around Mccauley. Coming through the straight Kerber took the inside and got by Peterson to take the lead and was able to hold on for the remaining laps to cross the line for the win. Peterson took second and Mccauley held on for

a third place finish. In the second moto everything got shook up with so many riders flying into the first turn, its anyone’s race. Paxton Kerber took the win to take first overall, Bryce Olsen came in second taking second overall with a fourth place in the first moto, and Eran Peterson crossed in third, taking third overall with an eighth place finish in the first moto. Up next was Supermini with Jarred Berggren coming out front with the holeshot. Close behind was Chad Saultz and Jesse Atichison. Steven Freund got around Atichison to take over third while Saultz was battling with Berggren up front. Going up the hill to the back section of the track, Saultz was able to 85cc riders Chase Boykin and Noah Taylor. get to the inside of Berggren to take over the the win. Berggren took second, lead. They battled back and and Freund third. In the second forth, but Saultz turned on the moto the results were exactly the heat and started to create a lead same giving Saultz the overall before coming over the line for win at topping them all in both

motos. Out in 250B today there was a great turnout of fourteen riders lining up at the gate. At the gate’s drop, Christopher An-

tolak on the Tuf Performance Honda took the holeshot with Austin Das and James Hermes clearing the first turn side by side. Honda mounted Logan Skaggs came around the outside of the second turn to gain some ground, moving into third place. They held those spots until late in the race, still super tight. Coming into the sand section taking the white flag, Das was able to get past Antolak to take over the lead. Antolak held onto second crossing the line with Skaggs third. In the second moto Das took the win to secure first place overall, Skaggs came in second to wrap up second overall and Wisconsin’s Brandon Marescalco took third, grabbing third overall following a fifth place finish in the first moto on his Yamaha. The 65cc classes put on another great show for all the spectators. In 65Jr Kash Schnowske took the holeshot with Isaac


Joseph Dalzell, Vaughn Mays and Zach Coons tearing it up in 250A.

Moyle in second and Brennan Wages third. Coming down the hill on the first lap Wages got around Moyle to take over second, as Schnowske stayed up front, riding smooth the entire race to take the win. Moyle held off Brandon Martyniak to secure third place. In the second moto Schnowske bounced out front right away and simply owned the track for yet another moto win. Martyniak improved on his first moto fourth place, mailing second in the moto for second overall. Moyle came in seventh place in the moto, but third overall while Wages did not finish the second moto. 65Sr was up next and Eddie Norred swept both motos for the overall. Conner Burger started the first moto in second, ahead of Gunner Schmidgall. Ruger Brown got to the inside of Schmidgall early to take over third. In the second moto they finished in the same order. Today was a great day of racing out at Motorsports Park as always! The track was in great shape all day, and the tempera-

tures were gorgeous after dealing with 100 degree heat all July. The Nuclear series will be coming to a close at the beginning of September and it has been some great racing all season, the summer has flown by so fast.

he stage was set for a great night of racing under the lights. The weather was perfect and as racers and spectators alike streamed through the gates, the track was prepped and ready to take on anyone willing. 270 plus entries and a good number of spectators had a lot to like about the evening. The first race consisted of the 250A class, and it started the evening off with excitement. There was a total of thirteen competitors in this class, and needless to say they gave everyone the show they came to see. #504 Jeremy Kress took first place honors in both motos with Kurtis McCabe in the second spot. Ty Tyrell from Illinois stayed up in the pack securing the third place position in both motos. There was a large group of riders in the 65Jr class - sixteen bikes on the line, ready to claim their shot at a trophy. The gate dropped and it was Fort Dodge, IA’s Gage Steburg jumping to the lead in both motos for the night’s overall win. Maliq McCaleb gave chase in both motos to eventually finish second. Jada Murphy finished third in the first moto, just edging out Isaac Moyle. Moyle didn’t finish the second moto, and Jarrett Robinson stepped up from a first moto fifth to beat Murphy in moto two. Murphy’s 3-4 was still good for third overall ahead of Robinson. At intermission there was the 85cc Buddy Race which was a great time. There

were a total of ten teams competing in this special event and all finished, so all said and done - everyone was a winner having taken part in the fun class with friends and family members. Vocal spectators made plenty of noise for the Quad 90 Open riders as ten riders hit the track. With great racing, the first place trophy went to Sky Volkamer after winning both motos. Zachary Lindley beat Taron Liebe across the line for second in each moto as Tristen Liebe went 5-4 for fourth overall ahead of Cedar Rapids’ own Luke White (45).

Loberg crushes Spring Creek Millville, Minnesota - August 5 By Rolfe Otterness

J

ake Loberg had a weekend free from his schedule campaigning the national pro circuit, and took advantage of it by hanging out at his old stomping grounds - the Spring Creek track and round nine of the 2012 Super Series. He showed some serious speed as he circulated at the front of every moto he entered on his way to six straight wins in 1424A, 250A and Open A. Henry Miller accomplished similar domination in the B class version of the same classes. The real master of the day with eight straight moto wins was Gage Fisher, who tore up the competition in the mini classes. The weather was much better (cooler) than the early summer heat we have been subjected to this year, and rider turnout delivered over 450 entries. Track prep was excellent as usual and the motos went off quickly as the Spring Creek crew sliced through the race order. Iowan Luke Peters has been appearing regularly at the track this year, and jumped out front as the first Open A moto cleared the gate. Peters held on to first to complete the initial Jake Loberg (#62) aced the 250A class with starts like this.

lap, but Loberg demoted him to second shortly thereafter. Loberg began to edge away while Ryan Orres and Nathan Kohnke waged battle over third. Kohnke slipped by Orres in a lap or so and Orres found Bruce Gates on his tail. Gates motored by in the sandwash and set off after Kohnke, catching and picking him off again in the whoops on the next lap. Gates had a spot of trouble and dropped back behind Kohnke shortly. Loberg took the win with a decent lead over Peter, Kohnke back a ways for third then Gates and Orres to fill the top five. Loberg headed out strongly in moto two and began to surge away from the pack. Bryce Craig held onto second leading Gates and Kohnke. A tight battle developed over second with those three riders and also Clarion Chapiewski getting into the mix. Gates took control of second with Chapiewski pressuring him and Kohnke close too. Loberg established a large lead for the win with Gates maintaining second. Kohnke demoted Chapiewski, crossing the line shortly behind the amazing ageless Gates (Minnesota’s version of John Dowd) and Craig wrapping up fifth. Henry Miller jumped out front early in the 250B class to set the pace with Mitch Koester in pursuit. Conner Cunningham, Cody Steuck, Travis Muller and Jordan

Kasper were in a dispute over third. Miller had the throttled twisted to the max and held on for the moto win. Koester stalled out late in the moto and fell back, allowing Cunningham to inherit second with third and fourth allocated to Steuck and Muller. Miller pulled the holey in moto two to lead the way. Cunningham and Koester wrangled over second with Koester seeming to gain the edge only to have late moto trouble again. Cunningham secured second well back of Miller as the checkered brought and end to the race. Kasper topped his first moto fifth as he took third over Muller and Logan Lewis. Jaxon Opitz made his bid for glory as he stole the start in Mini 65cc 7-9, running out front for the first two laps ahead of Gavin Janovsky. The two were skirmishing fiercely with Dillon Nelson and Gage Krech providing pursuit. Janovsky eventually made the move on lap three to grab the lead and take a narrow win over Opitz. Dillon Nelson, Krech and Trevin Nelson were next to cross the line. Opitz led the way again in moto two while his adversary, Janovsky fell early in the race and lost a lot of ground. Dillon Nelson was on the move and dispatched with Opitz to take the win and tie up the overall. Opitz held on for second and Janovsky recovered for third over Weston Milas and Conner Klemenhagen. Chase Stevenson roosted to the front of


the first moto in the 125 Two Stroke 12+ class with Kyle Lawler and Thomas Flintrop slotting into the 2-3 spots. Stevenson had the mojo flowing and began to edge away from the field. Lawler maintained a decent pace in second while Sam Tinkey challenged and dispatched with Flintrop to grab third about halfway into the moto. Logan Hegna trailed Flintrop at the checkered for fifth. Moto two was again a Stevenson show as he jetted off to the win. Lawler looked solid for second over Tinkey with Lucas Hegna and Logan Hegna pulling 4-5 finishes this time out.

Azzie Double Header DT Lake Mills, WI - August 18-19 By Dave Hollub

I

s there a better way to spend two days than at Aztalan to either race or watch some flat track action? Unfortunately I missed the first day and when I arrived Sunday, all I heard was how great the Saturday night racing was. Most lines were double rows as over 135 entries showed up on a track that was described by everyone as perfect. The heat races went off smoothly and after a quick touch-up by the crew the mains were ready to start. When Quad A got the green light Jake Foti launched into the lead with Chuck Calvert and Cory Mahlum looking for any opening to slip past. Foti and Calvert held their positions as they separated from the class. Mahlum had his hands full with challenges by Brett Durant. When they came out of turn four it was an almost even race but Mahlum hooked up sooner and took the position by less than half a bike.

After winning both her classes Saturday night, 50cc rider Sutton Skodras looked like a favorite today but when 50cc Four Stroke rounded the holeshot she was stuck back in third. Xander Figliuzzi jumped out front with Trevor Infalt right behind him. Skodras charged hard and by the end of lap one she was all over Infalt’s rear wheel. Infalt couldn’t shake her, but seemed to have a bit more throttle down the straight. As the crossed flags came out they had rolled their battle right up to Figliuzzi’s rear wheel and now he had to defend his position as well. As all three rounded corner four they were within a couple bike lengths but Figliuzzi was still out front when the checkers flew just barely edging out both Infalt and Skodras. After the race a smiling Figliuzzi told me, “My race was good. I was in front at the start and held the gas open. I kept going and won. My Mom and Dad help me race and so does Figs Racing Products.” When Vet 30+ got the green

Michael Hunter was out front in the +40 heat race.

light Chris Baker jumped out front with Sergius Figliuzzi on his tail. As the two battled it out

Aaron Miller settled into third with a running battle between Chris Foskett and Todd Lefeber


right behind him. By lap five Baker and Figliuzzi had separated from the pack and Lefeber slipped ahead of Miller to claim third at the checkers. Mike Yogerst got out front in Super Senior right away and began putting a gap on the class. Kurt Seeman was second but had Al Sumner and Tim Miller ready to take advantage of any opening. As they hit corner three on lap three Sumner dove hard inside and made the pass on Seeman to take away second. Chuck Dickenson was on the move all moto as he fought back from a fifth place start. By lap five he was running third, just a short gap behind Sumner. In the Open class the start went to Lucas Fox leading DJ Slosser and Ian Steen into the first corner. Lexi Hoffmann went to work letting Steen know she was right on is rear tire, looking for any opening and finally on lap four, Mike Yogerst (#12) and Chris Baker battle in +40. going into turn two, Steen got caught good all weekend for this track. In Open I in the loose dirt and had to slow just enough could have gotten a better start. DJ was in for Hoffmann to get to work on Slosser. Hofffront of me and when I tried to pass him he mann was all over Slosser, but Slosser won kind of stuffed me a bit and forced me to go the drag race to the finish to hold onto second. up on top. That is when the other kid hit my Hoffmann finished her night off in the back tire and he went down which was kind of 251-505cc class by grabbing the lead at the a bummer. We did a complete restart and I holeshot and never looking back. Parker ended up third. I almost got DJ at the line. In Lange had a running battle with Ian Steen all 505 I got a really good holeshot and just took moto but was able to hold him off to claim off and never looked back. Last night in Open second at the checkers. class I led for six out of eight laps which I was Hoffmann later told me, “I went out in pretty proud of. Ion told me it was tough getpractice and the bike was hooking up really ting around me but I knew he was going to well. I just really felt good. Then in the heats pass me eventually. Just being able to lead I was able to win. That was really a great ego him six laps and finishing second is almost as boost for me. My bike has really been set up

good as a win. I definitely have to thank LaGrange Salvage, ProMotorsports, MT Wallet Racing, and my Mom and my Dad. Today is my Dad’s birthday and this is my first time winning first in a while so it is a good birthday present for him and all his hard work.” As always the flat track action at Aztalan lived up to it’s billing as the best in the midwest, thanks to all the racers and fans that came out. If you haven’t been to a flat track yet there is one last chance when the club hosts another Saturday/Sunday double header on September 15 and 16.

Twenty-one +30C riders were on the line for their start. Their course went directly to the scoring barrels as running it clock wise one week and counter clock wise the next time dictates. What this meant is all these C class guys heading for the double logs in a bunch, all at one time. Not to mention Big C and Little C were mixed in right ahead of them. Jack Hansen led the field into the barrels with John Ceasar and Lee Orme hot on his heels. Daren Buffo was giving chase. Ceasar had mechanical issues and fell out of the hunt and finally the race while Casey Rick was coming from a distant nineteenth place, picking of riders every lap. The carnage at the logs was amazing as these guys will do what it takes to get over those logs til they are so tired they simply take the “sally” trail. Orme and Rick battled the last couple laps before Rick took the win. Jack Hansen took third yet again. Micah Austin beat out Darren Buffo who rode a consistent race with to fifth. Little C class has seen some major numbers increase in the last year or so as the new crop of riders transition over to the big bikes. Mason Schuhler did what he always does, goes over the big logs, runs down his competition, and simply takes care of business. This twelve year old is going to be a rider to reckon with as the years progress. Again this race he came from a few lines back to pass everyone in the group, 50A, all the C riders... were seeing his dust this day. He just got off the 85cc bike for the first hour, and then rode this event at 1.5 hours. Braden Housenga, and Logan Housenga came to check out this race for the first time. They ran excellent laps and kept Mason honest for a majority of the race. Luke Kelly fought hard with Brett Bolek and edged him out for the fourth. The 50cc classes have been running the

fter weeks of hoping for rain, the riding park got just enough. Riders were greeted with a much longer course than normal, including a little more mx track which helped in connecting the trails to get the distance. All year long the beginner and kids course has been excellent. They have had many races with new trails cut the week before the event, and not all chewed up by big bikes. The AA and A classes were small, and started together today. Alec Perry (124) edged out Travis Ward (131) in the first turn and the two were motoring in the early laps. Veteran riders like Steve Willis (33), Ryan Moss (24), and Matt Dissell (90) held good lap times early, and know it’s a long race, and a lot can happen. Early into lap two Perry had some trouble in rock creek and went down. Unfortunately he fell at least two more times this day. Ward put a minute or so lead on the AA riders Dissell and Moss and looked be on his way to an easy day, that was until he got into traffic. This race had much more single track, and riders not moving over can make things difficult. Ward may not have Matt Dissel took the day’s overall win. managed that part of the race well, area had these guys slipping around for a few and Dissell seized the opportunity and passed laps til they burned in a line. Phelps domifor the lead on a knarly off camber, passing nated again but not as strong as the last time. Ward and two lappers in one clean move. Mabus, Pelka and Bland raced hard. In a Now the race was on. For another lap or so great come from behind ride Mabus crossed Ward and Dissell, went back and forth until a in third with Bland second. Pelka missed the rattled Ward hit the ground on the mx portion podium by one spot. of the course. Later the race crud got into the main jet and for three laps Ward limped the bike around. Moss took second overall and Steve Willis retired early with a flat tire. Pretty intense times with the afternoon race as it was the first time in a long time that a couple kids in the A class had something for the AA guys. Chris Hoffman was fourth overall as ole man Travis Held (30A) was fifth. 65 Beginner has become a very competitive class with riders chasing points and attending many events this year. Blake Phelps (121) has been the dominate rider lately, and today was no exception. Riders at this age get their speed in spurts, and Blake has taken well to his KX65, and is a force to reckon with. Robert Bland (134) and Conner Mabus (109), along with Jay Pelka (150) have been duking it out all summer with results that have kept Mason French leads Tanner Whipple (129), Garrett Ward them close. (153) and Autumn Torres of the 65cc class off the start. A little too much watering on the start 24 CYCLE USA, September 2012

same course as 65 beginner with some motocross types trying out HS races. Looks like there are a few young guns out there taking a liking to a little different type for racing. Eli Berryman, Ian Murphy and Will Swango battled the one mile course. Eli put some time on the other two but Murph and Will know how to battle as they have on the mx tracks in northern IL. These top three banged out eight full laps, and did a great job. Notable mentions Cole Morgan, Darrin Herman, Grayson Plowman. Grayson had a slow start but got into the swing of things and managed a great ride. Looks like FVOR will be extending the race times for the last race this fall. 65 Beginner riders and 50cc riders will get longer race times. Stay tuned for that little tid bit of information coming soon. 65cc class this day seen Tanner Whipple (129), Mason French (192) and Garrett Ward (153) dice for much of the early part of thier

race. Watching these three was pretty amazing. Picking different lines, passing each other, in fact five - six times in the first lap, they took turns in the lead spot. Mason went down first and played catchup then it was another flat tire for Ward. Tanner got away clean and dominated like he has much of the season! As the Quads lined up for the start of their race, there was no complaints about the weather as this was the first race at Fox Valley this year that the weather was perfect. The spirits were high, and everyone was looking forward to the start of the race. At the drop of the flag Tim Volski jumped off the line for the holeshot followed by Scott Burkitt and Bryan Wittersheim. Volski didn’t hold the lead very long as he was passed by Burkitt and Kevin Johnson. The rest of the race was led by Burkitt followed by Johnson as he was never able to close the gap. The best battle of the day was between the Wittersheim and Volski. At the end of the day it was the Burkitt with the overall followed by Johnson and Wittersheim. It was a very nice day to race today. The big course was a little over four miles long, and many riders commented it was one of the best they have ridden at the park. Next up is the September 16th free t-shirt event, and the final event on Oct 21st, where it’s GP time!

Cram Memorial Race Joliet, Illinois - July 21 By Hanna Miller

O

n Saturday July 21st Joliet MX held their fifth annual Jordan Cram Memorial Race. Jordan died four years ago doing the thing he loved most… motocross. Each year after practice all the racers gather, pray, then participate in a parade lap led by one of Jordan’s #88 bikes, as the racers approach the top of the finish line each would pause and twist the throttle in Jordan’s honor. This year the parade lap was led by Jordan’s friend Austin Kukula. New for the event this year was the Jordan Cram Heart Award which was given to a rider sixteen or younger that showed the qualities of Jordan; family, friends, faith, fun, and going fast. The award was given to Christopher Gallagher with the first runner-ups being Juan Wonders and Jimmy Lee.

Gallagher was picked by the staff of Joliet MX and the Cram family. There were also many other items given away that were donated by Willy World, Razor Image, Extreme Life Ministries and The Tool Store. Ridge Ambulance donated all their services for the evening free. Also new this year was the share & care event in which riders were encouraged to place unused or outgrown gear onto tables, and help themselves to something else they might need. This was a big hit, and made for some very grateful riders! Of course it’s always a pleasure to have the Cram family; Deon, Jenny & Makayla in attendance. While it was a hot day and attendance seemed to be down, the battles sure heated up! In the 65Jr class James McDannel, Hunter Billingsly, and Noah Miller stayed together for most of the race. On the second to last lap when Miller was gaining Christopher Gallagher was the Jordan Cram Heart Award winner.

on McDannel, but then crashed. Then as McDannel went to pass Billingsly, Billingsly fell and McDannel took the win. Mark Marincic took the wins in both the 250B and 1424 classes. He was riding hard every lap and never let up. Another notable racer of the night was Ben Ibianskas, winning both 85Jr and 85 Open, and he to get faster every lap. From the previous year the racing was intense, a great time was had by all and an amazing boy remembered.

Arkansaw MX - A Mini Vacation Arkansaw, WI - July 27/28 By Cody Wills

I

had heard all this talk of a “Big Arkansaw Weekend”. I had heard of the cool fireworks shows, giveaways and plane flyovers they did. I had to personally make sure to check it out this year and see what all the hype was about. With the Friday open practice they offer before thier race weekends I planned a mini mid-summer vacation, heading over Thursday night for a fun camping/ race weekend with good friends. When I pulled in on Thursday afternoon it was as packed as if it was race day morning, making me think it’s going to be a good fun weekend, and it was! When the racing kicked off on Saturday Aj Meidl was out front early in 125Jr on his Yamaha YZ125, followed by Mason Persha. After a lap or two Meidl pulled out a decent lead. Persha fell into the clutches of Collin Reinhart who had worked through the pack from a bad start, but the laps winded down and Persha was able to hold off Reinhart and pickup second. Second moto had Meidl again with a good start and Reinhart was up there. This time it was Persha making his way through the pack. Meidl again dominated the moto. Reinhart kept it in second to picked up second overall. Persha made it up to third, salvaging a third overall. In the Sportsman class Ty Hennessy put his KX450 out front early in moto one, riding really well. Tanner Anderson was hot on his heels. Hennessy held his lines to make sure and stay ahead of Anderson. Hennessy was diving to the insides, and even going out of his way to take the inside before the triple to cut off Anderson. Shortly after Anderson tried again to stick a wheel in at the top of the hill, and ended his chance for the lead as he went down. Anderson fell 30

Aj Meidl dominated 125Jr Saturday.

back to fifth as Matt Meyers scooped up second. In the second moto Anderson had something to prove, and got out front right away. Hennessy had the overall in the bag with a second and he was comfortable with that. Jordan Orr was in third. Hennessy picked up the overall

and Anderson’s 5-1 was good for second. Matt Meyers rounded out the top three (2-4). The Supermini class saw Brady Bill dominate the class both days, sweeping each moto ahead of Max Steinhorst. Steinhorst had some trouble in the first moto Saturday, but consistently

got second each moto after that. Clayton Rankin used his consistant scores to rally to third each day as well. After the Saturday Night festivities the rain started to come down after mid night and it never seemed to stop. It rained pretty late into the morning. Some riders opted out of going out for practice. My moto was early in the order and it was a muddy one. There was one class before me and I would be lying if I wasn’t a bit dreading the mud, but once I got out there it was a blast. The Arkansaw crew had taken out most of the really deep, unridable sections. By the second set of motos I don’t think you could asked for better traction conditions. Perfect fun ruts in every corner, and tons of traction everywhere. With the prep that was done between motos the track was fantastic. I overheard more than one rider regretting the decision to pull out for the day after being scared off by the rain. The A classes were dominated both days by Nate Laporte, winning every moto he entered. He opted out of the Open A on Sunday after the down pours. Colton Karl was fast all weekend, getting second in both Open A and 250A on Saturday. With Laporte leaving the door open for a new winner on Sunday in Open A Dylan Narel rode through the mud to go 1-2, picking up that win.

The SuperMini class.


Lot of times when people tell you “yeah they have fireworks” you think just of some roman candles or smoke bombs. Normally the only place to see a real fireworks show is at your local Fourth of July fest. The firework show the Arkansaw crew put on Saturday night was one of the best I have ever seen. The Richardson family really puts some serious time and organization and money into putting on a good show for the fans. Before the fireworks they offered a pig roast that they cooked underground since the day before. They also provide everyone with an event t-shirt and other door prizes. Nolan Rommel was a lucky winner of pit bike presented by Xtreme Motorsports of Chippewa Falls. Hands down a perfect weekend provided by the Richardson family at Arkansaw Cycle Park!

Kato Cycle Club’s Night Hillclimb Mankato, Minnesota - July 21 By Mike Nelson

O

n the tail end of a mid summer heat wave it was a relief to be at the Kato Cycle Club, and enjoy the cool of the evening at their annual night hillclimb. The club has been busy since their June climb, changing their hill back to it’s straight run format, and they also changed up the first jump to make it a tricky double. The new look on the first jump had the first ATV riders of the day taking a conservative approach to getting it figured out. Then, the top five all put up very fast runs under six seconds in their opening runs led by Zach Diercks out of Hager City, Wisconsin with a run of 5.609 seconds. With the lights turned on in the twilight hours of the evening, the second round got started with the ATVs again leading the way, and Tyler Clark from Missouri absolutely screamed up the hill, breaking the five second mark with a run of 4.992 seconds. Clark was the only ATV in the four second range, and was one of only four riders to break into that range from any class all night. On the 4-Stroke side of ATV competition, Emily Dosdall chalked up her first ever win in just her second year of competing after joining her husband Mike and son Isaiah Thomas on the hill last year. In the youth classes Bodee O’Neil wowed the crowd on his second run in the Micro-Mini class as he put his little Cobra over the top in 9.107 seconds to take the win over Haley Bach. Braiden Henry and Casey Paider traded firsts and seconds in the 65cc and Mini Jr. classes, with Paider coming out on top in the 65s. Local rider Jason Laven had a comfortable half second lead in the Mini Sr. class after the first round, but Nathan Prebe came back from a disappointing fourth place run his first time up the hill and put together a smooth run of 7.136 seconds to edge out Laven for the win by just 26 thousandths of a second. The tightest racing of the night was in the 600cc class. This class of twenty-six entries finished with less than a second separating first from twentieth at the end of the night, and just a half a second split the top ten. Local rider and club member Marcus Winch took the top spot away from first round leader Zach DeGross with a time of 5.012 on his second run. Steve Cain improved his fifth place first run making his second trip up the hill in less than five and a quarter seconds to round out the top three in the class for the night. The fastest runs of the night came when the Open bikes took to the hill. Ryan Stevermer was the first Open rider to flirt with the 5 second mark. A couple rides later Zach DeGross took to the hill on his big Kawi and 32 CYCLE USA, September 2012

flew over the top with a time of 4.991 to be the first rider of the night to break in to the four second range. Next on the hill was reigning District 23 champion in the class, Jared Gitter, and he delivered a 4.905 that held for the win, and fast time of the night through regular competition. In the second round Local vet rider Brent Stevenson joined Gitter and Degross in the four second range, splitting their times for second place. Stevenson also won the +40 class. When the fastest riders of the day were running for the King of the Hill, it looked like Gitter’s time of the day would be safe with times holding around the mid five second range until the final three riders came up. With only the two fastest riders of the day to follow him, Marcus Winch reopened the crowd’s eyes when he sailed over the top on his 600cc class machine to take the KOTH lead with a 5.064 second run. Stevenson pulled into the start next and cracked the throttle open on his big custom built open ride, screaming over the top with a time of 4.985 to move into the lead. Last up the hill was Jared Gitter. Having already won the Open class and setting fast time of the day, Gitter wasn’t ready to call it a night just yet. Looking for more, Gitter wound up his big Honda and let it fly, laying down a sweet run of 4.877 seconds to break his own fast time and win the King of the Hill. The Kato Cycle Club, their crew, and all the riders did an excellent job of keeping things going to get the 220+ entries all up the hill twice and still wrap up not too far past midnight on this unique night time event. Thanks to all for putting on another great show.

Peters second win came in the Senior class where he had to work a little to get it.

Pecatonica Going Strong

Sunset at the track.

Pecatonica, Illinois - July 21 By Josh Rud More photos at www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

S

aturday the 21st of July was round six of the Battle at the Border Series in Pecatonica. It was cloudy most of the day, keeping the summer heat away and the race had a great turn out! The fairgrounds also had events going on for breast cancer awareness this evening. The track was in great shape, having been overhauled a bit since the race last month, and was looking amazing. The races were tight and the A class was out in full swing with Tommy Hofmaster giving everyone a run

for their money. The first race of the night was 250B, it set the tone for a great evening of racing with a lot of lead changes. Off the line Logan Skaggs took the holeshot with Lucas Hayes in second and Ricki Williams third. Heading into the whoops section Skaggs slid out and Hayes took over with Jordan Mackiewicz moving into second. Williams passed Mackiewicz moving into second, then after the whoops Mackiewicz nailed the throttle to pass Williams right back. Hayes was next to falter, sliding out. Mackiewicz, Williams and Nick Wallace all moved up. After the sweeper Williams lost control and fell. Travis Schaefer slid

into third, while Skaggs had been charging back hard and was up to fourth. Coming to the white flag Skaggs went inside through the sweeper taking over third, then inside of Wallace before the whoops section to take second. Mackiewicz took the win with Wallace third. Tommy Hofmaster was dominating all night, with a win in Open A and +25. When 250A lined up he got off the gates with a huge holeshot. Cameron Lansing was behind him with Kevin Markwardt third. Coming into the corner right after the whoops Lansing lost his back end and went down, putting Markwardt up to second and Maxx Malatia into third. Markwardt and Hof-

master have been battling all year and they are great friends off the track. Hofmaster and Markwardt both have great speed through the whoops with all the arenacross riding they have done, so the battles were always in the turns. Markwardt starting closed the gap on Hofmaster, but was unable to get by him before the checkered flag. Hofmaster took the win, sweeping the A classes. The action carried right over to 250C with seventeen riders packing into the gates tonight. Off the line Jono Mandelke took the holeshot with his first time at the track this year. Trevor Hayes, the pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader was right behind him as Nick Blumer was hanging onto third, holding off the large pack chasing them all. On the third lap Hayes made a move to take over the lead. Mandelke charged back, trying to get back out front, but was un-successful after several close attempts. Coming over the finish line Hayes took the win with Nick Blumer in third. The Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class came out fast tonight with a lot of battling going on. Off the line Kaylen Pellmann took the holeshot with Alyssa Haling and Sammy Mandelke tailing her. Coming through the sweeper Mandelke was able to get on the inside of Haling, taking over sec-


ond place, but then Mandelke stalled, letting Hailing by. Mandelke got the bike started right in time to hold onto third. Pellmann took the big win. The 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where looking great out there tonight. 80 Open started off the night with Alex Taylor coming out with the holeshot. Battling for position was Shawn Thompson and Austin Link. Taylor was riding smooth, and created a gap over everyone while Alex Oerkfitz was making a charge through the pack, passing Link to take over third. Coming into the rhythm section Thompson lost control letting Oerkfitz and Link by. Oerkfitz started to reel in Taylor, but the laps ran out leaving Taylor out front with the win, Oerkfitz in second and Link third.

Excitement at Fun Valley Montezuma, Iowa - August 11 By Missi Thede

S

aturday, August 11th was a beautiful day at Fun Valley, with some awesome updates to the track. Fun Valley added over 100 loads of black dirt to the track for improvements that made for great racing throughout the day. This added 6-12 inches of new top soil across the entire track and it was in the best condition it has ever been. The 250C class first moto had #270 Nicholas Tracy take the win with Dillon Nail second, Stone Schildroth third and Justin Ross fourth. With a turn of events second moto Ross took first placing Tracy in second. Drew Peterson with a ninth place finish first moto happily finished third ahead of Nail. Overall kept Tracy in first, Ross second, Nail third and Schildroth fourth. Quad A and Quad A Production stayed consistent with #4 Adam Jaspering taking the overall win in both classes with John Benda second and Kyle Burnham third in Quad A, while swapping overalls in the Production class. In the 50Sr class Gage Steburg took the overall win with consistent finishes ahead of Isaac Moyle, Ronnie Orres, and Ethan McMahon. With a fifteen rider gate of 85Jr racers, Dylan Smith locked in the overall. Open C had an exciting second moto of trying to guess who was going to take the overall finishes for the day. Justin Ross set the pace for the rest of the riders by taking the overall win after sweeping both motos. First moto Nicholas Tracy took second with Brandon Teeple in third and Cody Barnes fourth. For the second moto Zakary Kraft finished second, coming back from a sixth place finish first moto and took second overall. Stone Schildroth finished third. Barnes finished fourth again for the second moto but gladly took third for the overall for the day. With Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event ending after the first moto due to rain, 36 CYCLE USA, September 2012

Jamison Duclos holeshots moto two of 125Jr.

Lake Mills, WI - August 12 By Dave Hollub

A

fter lackluster attendance in July, cooler weather came for this race, and the crowds returned. A total of 540 entries were ready to put on a day of hot racing to entertain the spectators enjoying a perfect August day. As an added bonus the Monster Energy Freestyle demo team was here to put on three shows during the day, and Southeast Sales had a special promo for their wining riders. Aidan McCormack grabbed the 50 Senior holeshot in moto one to get the day going. Before they hit the barn section Mitchell Malaney was out front. Elijah Tetzlaff stayed close, then on lap three he slipped into second. Sam Mayer grabbed the moto two holeshot with Justin Oehlhof right on his rear wheel. By lap three Malaney was out front put-

ting a gap behind him. Mayer held on in second despite pressure from Tetzlaff. A perfect 1/1 day put Malaney on top of the overall while Tetzlaff (2/3) edged out Mayer (4/2) for second. Thirty-four riders lined up for Sportsman B/C, and when the gate dropped Kail McCormack was out front. Tylor Skodras and Andy Kost were bar to bar, out front as they flew over the plateau on lap one. McCormack settled into third while Ricky Liederbach and Justin Hall battled for fourth. On lap two Matthew Meyers fought his way into fourth after a mid-pack start with Jason Bernhardt following right behind him. Kost dropped out. By the time the checkers flew Hall had dropped out of contention leaving McCormack with a second place finish, just ahead of Meyers and Bernhardt. Skodras barely edged out Meyers for the moto two

holeshot. On their first trip over the plateau Andy Kost had moved ahead of Meyers which set up a battle with Skodras for the next two laps. As the white flag came out Kost powered into the lead with Skodras still looking for a chance to get back out front. As they came back from the west end Skodras was no where to be seen and Meyers cruised to the finish in second

with Taylor Strauss holding off Bernhardt for third at the finish. Meyers claimed the overall with his 3/2 finish while Bernhardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4/4 was good for second and McCormack (2/7) was third. Thomas Dretzka was out front by three bike lengths as the +50 class rounded the holeshot with Tim Boblin and Phil Berndt next in line. By the time half a lap was over Kurt Andrews had

moved into second and was now drafting Dretzka. Andrews pushed a wheel in on Dretzka several times until he was finally able to pull into the lead on lap three. Dretzka retook the lead in the barn section, and then pulled a small gap on the final lap. Wayne Welzien cruised the entire moto in third with Boblin close behind. In moto two Jeff Ramsay followed Dretzka around the holeshot, but Andrews quickly moved up into second. Boblin was able to hold off Bob Behrens for the first half of the moto, but as the white flag came out Behrens took over fourth. Andy Kost was out front when 125Jr took their moto one gate drop, and he immediately put some ground between him and the rest of the class. Hunter Sayles rounded the first corner in second with Jamison Duclos and Bubba Ponton close behind. The running order held to the checkers. In moto two it

looked like Kost was going to holeshot until just before the corner Duclos dove inside and edged him out. On their first trip over the plateau Duclos was still out front. Kost quickly moved into the lead and proceeded to put some breathing room in front of Duclos. By the end of lap two Sayles was pushing Duclos, and by the third time over the plateau had moved into second. There were enough riders in 250C to fill two gates, and when 250C/1 hit the track Michael Vanlangen got the holeshot. Mason Persha was quick to move out front and as he came over the plateau on lap one he was followed by Nathan Lange, Austen Madison, and Shane Cooper. Cooper was on a mission, having already moved up from a tenth place start as he also picked off both Lange and Madison before the first lap was over. Midway through lap three Persha dropped out with a mechanical. Cooper cruised to the

moto win as Madison got past Lange. Vanlangen looked like a holeshot machine as he pulled away at the corner in moto two with Nickolas Anderson and Jon Loesche flanking him. Anderson pulled out front but as he came over the plateau, but Cooper was closing in. Cooper took over the lead before the lap was scored and began putting some breathing room behind him. Madison got around Kyle Whysol on lap two to set up a battle for second with Anderson. By the white flag both Madison and Lange had gotten past Anderson, but neither had time to put a challenge on Cooper before the finish. Cooper, “I have been getting bad starts all day, but I was able to move up pretty fast. In moto one of 250C I was able to pass a bunch of guys and then when I got behind Mason he just pulled off. In moto two I got a

50Jr. winner Deegan Cooley.

little better start, but just rode my butt off. I was able to get out front and then pull away. The track is great, a little rocky in a couple areas, but all that sand they added is awesome. I obviously want to thank my Dad and Mom as well as all the rest of my family for coming and supporting me. Also Motosports Factory, those guys have helped me out a ton, Throttle Jockey, and UFO as well.” Nathen LaPorte was out to collect an added bonus offered by Southeast Sales to riders running their graphics, as he took the overalls in both 250A and Open A. In 250A moto one Vaughn Mays grabbed the holeshot while LaPorte rounded the corner in fifth behind a wall formed by Jacob Boss, Sam Long, and Josh Philbrick. As lap two began LaPorte had moved up into third right behind Boss. LaPorte was able to work his way past Boss on lap two and

immediately went to work chasing down Mays. By the end of lap three LaPorte was out front and Mays now had Aztalan regular Joe Dretzka all over his rear looking for a chance to get by. Mays held Dretzka off, leaving LaPorte a chance to finish out front. LaPorte grabbed the lead in moto two at the holeshot and led to the checkers. Philbrick was running second ahead of Mays. Long put on a hard charge from his fifth place start passing Dretzka in the late part of lap two. Next up was Mays and by the end of lap three Long had moved into third. Long was able to catch Philbrick and after a couple laps pressuring him, finally forced his way past into second before the checkers. Later LaPorte talked about his day, “It was definitely a fun day and it was really great Southeast Sales could put something like this together for us. It really pulled a lot of A riders out and made for some great racing. It was a good race and in 250A I was able to get the holeshot and then got a good lead all the way. In 450A I had a good battle with Matty Maier. He made a mistake in back and I passed him when he made it, but it was a close race and really a lot of fun. The track is beautiful. I haven’t been here

since early in the spring and it wasn’t in the best shape then but today it is great. This is the best I have ever seen the track, it was amazing and I had a lot of fun. Hopefully I’ll get one more try at the outdoor Nationals if the budget holds up, otherwise I’ll race locally to stay strong and be ready for next year. Southeast Sales, ProAction, KTM, Acerbis, Motorex, LB Flooring, One Industies, and everyone else that has helped me out... THANKS it has been fun.” The track responded perfectly to the cooler temperature and overcast skies as it stayed moist, and formed lines all day. Everyone got their fill of racing action as well as seeing some freestyle riders giving great shows over on the flat track.

Picture-perfect day in Mankato Mankato, Minnesota - July 29 By Dusty Rose

C

lose your eyes and imagine this… The smell of exhaust, sounds like; yang, yang, yang and braaaaaap, the sight of the grounds filled with trucks, trailers, motor homes, fifth wheelers and many motorcycles. The Kato Cycle Club had all this on July 29th as District 23 riders gathered, ready to rip some holeshots, clear some triples and fly up and down the hills. As the gates dropped and the 250Jr. 14-16 racers zipped out onto the track, Wyatt Krampitz from Waseca, MN slipped through for the holeshot. Colton Neuharth, Cameron Langerman and the rest of the pack vanished up into the woods. Krampitz held on, and led the group throughout the race. Myles Kraganbring passed Neuharth and Langerman to take over second. After three laps, Bryce Barney worked some magic and also moved up to claim third. Barney wasn’t out of tricks; he pulled another gear out of his hat and slithered by Kraganbring late in the race to finish second. Krampitz jumped out to the lead in moto two, with the Kawasaki of Neuharth and the Honda of Langerman hot on his tail. Iowa’s Cameron Langerman gave it some gas and maneuvered past Neuharth. A nice battle for the third spot took place between Neuharth and Barney. After three laps Barney showed some razzle dazzle and snuck into the third. The engines roared, the gates dropped and #108, Devin Stang from Shakopee, MN soared out and led the 85cc 9-12 riders onto the track. Kole Lemcke, Farmington, MN held on to the second position as Aaron Boatman and Seth Carpenter were right there as well. Stang was at the top of his game, kept it pinned and opened up a huge lead. Lemcke kept an air of calm and cool and settled into second. Both motos ended with Stang, 42

Lemcke and Boatman finishing off in the top three positions. In the 65cc 7-11 class Austin Kristiansen from LeCenter, MN throttled through the start area for the lead. Austin Stewart, Zack Sherman and Brennen Berends followed close, as they took the step-up and disappeared into the tree line. Sherman made some nifty moves, passed Stewart and Kristiansen and led after lap one. The two Kawasaki’s ridden by Sherman and Kristiansen led the race as Stewart and Berends fell back. With a quarter of a lap to go Kristiansen showed some speed, took the jumps a little longer and tried his hardest to catch Sherman. Sherman kept his head and snatched the checkered flag. Moto two, Kristiansen ripped a holeshot and never looked back. Stewart and Sherman followed respectively in second and third. #440, Zack Sherman caught a fast line and sped by Stewart, and then shadowed Kristiansen through four laps. Kristiansen fought off the attack and captured the checkered flag, giving him the big win. Sherman hung on for second and Brennen Berends battled past Austin Stewart for third. KEYC-TV from Mankato was at the track and broadcasted a small story about motocross. Motokazie had pulled it all together once again and supplied us with a great day of racing at the Kato Cycle Club. The sights, sounds and smells had settled but will appear again at the next racing event, and like everyone else, I can’t wait.

Mega-Moto Showdown Akron, Indiana - August 4 By Becky Stichter

A

mega-moto showdown, offering a lot of seat time, was held at Hangtime this weekend. With summer vacation coming to an end, the staff at Reads Racing wanted to have a full weekend of riding events and family fun. An open ride was held Thursday afternoon. With two tracks on site now, racing was offered on both tracks this weekend. Friday night’s race was held on the new track, also known as H2. Following the evening race, there was a hillbilly slip & slide for all to enjoy. Racing action Saturday morning was done on a megamoto track. H1 and H2 were combined. It was kind of like a motocross/ grass race/ grand prix all in one, with each moto lasting fifteen minutes. The huge track, and changes from hard packed clay on H1, to softer sandy dirt on H2 challenged the riders stamina and skills.

had room to spread out on the track, Johnson moved into the lead, followed by Hicks and Hagemeier. Johnson finished 1-1, ahead of Hicks. Hagemeier finished third in the first moto. In the second moto Meranda and Hagemeier battled again, with Meranda pulling ahead this time. In Quad A, Roger Gluth was out of the gates first, followed closely by Mike Bekel and Scott Gluth.

ishes. Miser pulled ahead of Wilmington, and was able to finish second. In the Women's 12+ class, Kristin Henson, mounted on her new Honda, was out of the gates first. Madison Johnson and Emily Eubanks weren't far behind. It didn't take too long for Johnson to find her groove and ride past Henson. Eubanks also got around Henson. Johnson won both motos, followed by Eubanks. There were some fast riders in the 14/24 class. In the first moto, Jeffrey Thode Jr. was out of the gates first, followed closely by Logan Dubbs and Levi Johnson. Thode had a small lead ahead of the other two riders. Dubbs and Johnson were battling hard for second place. Johnson rode ahead of Dubbs for a lap, then Dubbs found an opportunity to pass him back. Thode won moto one, followed by Dubbs. Johnson won moto two, as Thode and Dubbs were DNF’s. In the 65cc (7-9) class Spencer Paxson was the fastest out of the gates in moto one. Paxson maintained the lead, followed by Addison Wilmington and Colton Camp. Paxson took the win, with Wilmington finishing second. The riders mixed it up in moto two as Paxson didn’t finish. Wilmington took the win this time, followed by Rylan Keller and Camp. By the end of the showdown, a lot of the riders were looking pretty tired, yet some riders did sign up to race in the mx style TT rac-

ing. Only one round of the TT racing was done, as a storm came through and the races were called. The race for Sunday was also cancelled due to weather.

Changes continue at Sugar Maple Hillpoint, WI - August 5 By Dave Hollub

S

ugar Maple is one of those tracks where you should plan to show up the day before a race to get the track dialed in. It seems Jason Erdmann is never satisfied with his layout, and continuously makes changes as he reaches for perfection. For the 70 or so riders that took advantage of Saturday’s open practice, it was a chance to figure out the fast lines in the new sections. The Quads took the first gate drops and when Quad B/C rounded the holeshot corner Josh Beukema was leading with Bret Beier close behind. While the leaders held their positions to the checkers Derek Roller had pressure from Mat Herrington and Loren Libbey. On lap two Roller began having a mechanical issue. Herrington slipped into third and by the time lap three began he had Nick Kvigne on his rear

wheels. Kvigne dropped off the pace on lap three as Libbey and Jamie Lehman moved past. Beier grabbed the moto two holeshot and in a reversal of moto one it was Beukema chasing from second to the finish. Herrington settled into third and once again had Kvigne right on him, this time all the way to the checkers. A 2/1 day was the winning edge for Beier to take the overall with Beukema (1/2) second and Herrington (3/3) third. Brian Kinczfogel led Quad A from the gate drop to the finish in moto one. Kory Blake put pressure on Kinczfogel in the early laps. Thomas Staver held a solid third place all moto while Jay Mittelstaedt edged out Matt Manske at the finish. Kinczfogel was out front at the holeshot in moto two but when he lost traction after the Daytona corner he was looking at the rear-end of Blake's machine. Kinczfogel put on a hard charge and before lap

three had found enough room to retake the lead. Staver had a solid third place going until the white flag lap when he lost power in the rollers and Mittelstaedt took over. Kinczfogel, “This is my first year racing A class full time after getting off the youth bikes last season. I did the first two races this year and decided to move up to push my career a bit harder, racing with the adults. My season so far has been going real well and today I don’t think I could go any better. Thanks to Janssen Motorsports, they do all my motor work and I think they set me up with the best motor possible. Also Elka Suspension, Calgaard Oil, Moto Concepts, Brent Cahoon, EVS, and O’Neil Race Gear.” Despite being under the

weather from allergies, Mitchell Malaney was out front of 50Sr in moto one. Justin Oehlhof held onto second and Elijah Tetzlaff was right behind. Luke Vanlyssel recovered from a bad start and by the time lap one was half over he slipped past Tetzlaff. In moto two Malaney and Oehlhof were back out front running one/ two with a pretty good gap ahead of the rest of the class. Tetzlaff was third and this time it was Vanlyssel’s moto to chase and look for an opening. Midway through lap three Vanlyssel made a charge in the roller section but Tetzlaff slammed the door shut. Then on the white flag lap Vanlyssel got a handful of throttle going into the rollers and went into the corner at the end bar to bar with Tetzlaff. Vanlyssel held the inside of the


corner and slipped past over the next jump to take over third. Malaney later, “I had a good time, it was really fun today. I got the holeshot both motos and was able to stay in front. I like everything about this track, the jumps are really fun. Thank you to my dad for bringing me to the races and taking care of my bikes.” 125Jr always has some exciting racing and today was no exception. When the gate dropped Bryce Telfer was out front of Dustin Sikorski and Tyler Willing. Midway through the first lap Willing moved to the lead. Telfer now had a battle on his hands as Sikorski started putting a wheel in on him in the corners. Sikorski found the opening he needed as they were in the first valley on lap two, but his hold on second only lasted another half lap. Once Telfer slipped ahead in the holeshot corner he was able to hold on to the finish. Sikorski pulled a big holeshot in moto two and by the time he hit the Daytona corner already had a comfortable lead. While Sikorski cruised to the moto win Willing settled into second and Telfer held onto third for the entire moto. Willing got the overall with a 1/2 day while Sikorski (3/1) was second. Jason Bernhardt grabbed the holeshot in Sportsman B/C with Jordan Orr pushing him hard. Tyler Willing was in third and Trevor Orr had his sites set on getting past. On lap two it looked like Bernhardt was starting to pull away from Jordan Orr but this only lasted until lap three. As the two came around the Daytona corner they were side by side and at the next jump Orr carried enough momentum to move out front. They swapped positions twice before Jordan Orr took over. Trevor Orr also moved up into third on lap three and pulled a gap on Willing before the checkers. Bernhardt was out front right away in moto two but this time he had pressure from both Orr’s. By the end of lap one Willing had pulled into fourth and by now all of them were close enough to cover with an EZ-Up. On lap three Jordan Orr

Josh Philbrick overalled in both 250 and Open A.

went down, but this didn’t give Bernhardt a chance to relax as Trevor Orr just slipped into position on his rear wheel. Bernhardt held on for the moto win and overall with his 2/1 day while Trevor Orr was second 3/2 and Jordan Orr finished third with a 1/5. Josh Philbrick had a great day in the A classes despite start-

ing 250A in second around the holeshot behind Dale Kathan. Philbrick was all over Kathan looking for any opening to get into the lead and as lap two was closing he slipped by. Carlton Karl slipped past Kathan at the end of lap three, and this order stood to the checkers. In moto two Philbrick was out front at the start but Kathan was looking to

redeem his first moto position slide. By the time he went into valley one he was out front. Dylan Narel recovered from a bad start and by the midway point on lap two was right behind Clayton Vonmoos. Narel quickly wore Vonmoos down and made the move up into third on lap three. Narel rode hard but couldn’t get close enough to the top two before the checkers flew to put on a challenge. Later Dale Kathan on his day, “I got the holeshot first moto but Philbrick got around me pretty quick. I was running second most of the race but got passed at the end so I finished third. In the second moto I got a pretty good start. Philbrick got the holeshot but I got around him on the first lap and never looked back. He pushed me pretty hard most of the moto but then on the last couple of laps he let up and I was able to finish out front. I was pretty pumped that I went 3/1 for a second overall. I’d like to thank Kyle Kilday for letting me use his bikes this week, SF Performance, and my Grandma and Grandpa for helping me out and getting me started.” In Open A Philbrick powered down the start straight and settled into the lead. While Philbrick ran out front all moto he never got a chance to relax as both Matt Maier and Jason Erdmann were right on him. Erdmann was able to slip past to take second on the final lap. In moto two Philbrick again rounded the CYCLE USA, September 2012

holeshot in front this time with Kathan and Karl drafting off of him. Maier was battling with Erdmann and midway through lap two Erdmann slipped past to begin a charge after Karl. Erdmann bobbled just enough on lap four to let Maier slip back in front of him and by lap five Maier had gone past Karl. Maier made his move on Kathan at the Daytona corner and Erdmann out jumped Kathan at the next jump. Maier held on in second while Erdmann settled for third at the checkers. In 250C moto one Timothy Fischer and Jason Lucht rounded the holeshot together. Before the first lap was over Fischer had gone to the back of the pack and Lucht soon had pressure from Daniel Kraemer and Shane Cooper. Lucht went down and as Kraemer passed him Cooper saw his chance to start setting up a pass. As they hit the holeshot corner Cooper pulled along side Kraemer and then jumped into the lead over the triple. Cooper held onto the lead to the checkers with Kraemer chasing him and Colton Bentz finished third. Lucht grabbed the moto two holeshot and stayed out front to the checkers. Fischer settled into second while Bentz had his hands full holding third as Cooper put pressure on. In the end a 1/4 day took the overall for Cooper edging out Bentz with a 3/3.

Great Racing at Brown County Fair New Ulm, Minnesota - August 10 By Dusty Rose

F

riday night, August 10th, at the Brown County Fair in New Ulm, MN, the ferris wheel rose high into the sky, the merry-go-round went round and round the grand stands filled with spectators as the supercross riders tweaked their motorcycles. The weatherman gave us a great forecast for racing. Nine KTMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s packed the gates for the 50cc Premix class. Carter Anderson ripped the holeshot. Nolan Hempel and Noah Miesen sat in second and third. #154, Timmy Kristiansen pinned it, gained two positions and took over third. Anderson booked it through the rhythm sections, held steady over the jumps and swooped around the track fighting to hold his lead. Hempel maintained second place with Kristiansen third. The last lap, Anderson got some big air through the rhythms, had a shaky landing but hung on and reached the checkered flag first. In moto two Anderson grabbed the holeshot followed by Kristiansen and Jacob Berg from New Ulm, MN. After the first lap Nolan Hempel moved past Berg to take over third. At the end of lap three, the leader, Anderson, spun out and went down. He quickly recovered and held onto the lead as the three held their positions to the end. The gates dropped for the 450C class, and birthday boy Zach Anderson from Hanska, MN popped out for the holeshot. Jeremy Wall held onto second, with Jeff Doegge third. The crowd at the Brown County Fair witnessed a nice tight race between the first three riders. Doegge made a slick move and passed Wall. At the end of the race, Anderson seized the checkered flag followed by Doegge and Wall. In moto two,Jeremy Wall snatched the holeshot, close behind were Doegge and Anderson, with Trevor Archibauld in fourth. Wall managed some breathing room as Doegge and Anderson battled it out for second. After three laps Anderson ran into some trouble on the back side of the track, and Archibauld took over third. Wall flew through the finish line first, followed by Jeff Doegge and Trevor Archibauld. In the 250B class Walker

Zach Anderson charging in 450C.

Kruse pulled the holeshot. Tom Flintrop, riding his Honda, kept close in second with Colton Neuharth from Eden Prairie, MN hanging onto third. The leaders kept the race tight. The SX track was speedy and quick,

leaving no room for mistakes. Kruse rode a flawless race, giving Flintrop no room to make a move. Kruse took hold of first place, Flintrop second and Neuharth third. Moto two began with Flintrop getting a great start and early lead. Early on the first lap Kruse flew over the double, banked off the right hand berm and maneuvered by Flintrop. Both riders hopped across the rhythms section, Kruse pinned it and sailed over the grandstand double, gained a second or two but Flintrop stayed hot on his tail. Neuharth clutched onto the third position. Flintrop shadowed Kruse throughout the race, tried to make some moves, but Kruse was seized the checkered flag followed by Flintrop and Neuharth. Kruse also won the Open 80cc-105cc class. The skyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stayed clear, the races had proved exciting, the spectators had been thrilled and the riders collected their trophies. Happy racing as it should be!!! Results on page 52
