So what do we do in the off-season, you ask? I’d say to keep reading your copies of MRA and to patronize as many of our advertisers as you can. Please remember that most are the ones that not only advertise in our pages to keep us going but are also sponsoring racers and races to keep everything local alive. Why in the world would you ever consider buying something from a large online mail house or from someone from out of the area? Let them know that you appreciate them and their efforts to keep racing alive in our neck of the woods. You can also browse the thousands of race images online at our website. Race photos can be used to show appreciation for sponsors, they work great on resumes, and they are always at the top of a list for any racer as one of their favorite holiday gifts. You can link to just about every photographer’s website from MRA, and one of my favorites is Jim Bull Photo, not that I’m partial or anything. Please, however, check out them all, as these are the guys out on the front lines promoting what you do. We’ll be back with one more issue after this in December to promote the holiday gift giving season and to wrap up the rest of this year’s racing. As always, we look forward to your comments and suggestions. We have some big plans for 2012, so we certainly hope you come along. We’ll see you at the track.

Hello Race Fans

I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers. It’s a special holiday that we can all get together and be thankful for the things we have. I know it’s easy to complain as soon as something doesn’t go quite our way, but I’ve found that there is always somebody that has it worse off than we do. Please remember this holiday season to be kind to your family and friends and to be thankful for what you have. Also, if you have extra, there’s no better feeling in the world than sharing something with those who don’t. So it’s hard to believe that we are here at the end of the season in the great Northeast. I remember a year ago when we were planning the new season. There was much talk about where to race, who’s doing what and is the racing world coming to an end as we know it. Well I’m happy to report that we’ve all made it through, that we’ve all had places to race and that we are already thinking ahead to next year. Coming up we have our year-end award banquets, the MDRA Series in early November and the D7 Series in late November. The PA State Hare Scramble Series also falls in early N o v e m b e r, with the NEOC in early December along with the MAMA Banquet. Champions will be c r ow n e d, and the celebrations will be large. We congratulate all the year-end winners in advance.

november 2011

Cameron Smith #15 holds off Chase Smith #14 in the 85 class.

Dave Smith #60 worked his way to the front in the 40+ class on the new 350 KTM.

Colton Smith #41 took the win in the Open B and 250 B class on his Don’s Kawasaki ride.

BCTRA at Delta Short Track District 7 Dirttrack Series Delta, PA, October 1st, 2011 • Ryan Henderson www.RHDesigns95s.smugmug.com

“Smiths Dominate Delta” After the cancellation of the September race at Delta, we were pleased to be able to get the October race in without the rains. It was a very quick night due to the threat of potential downpours and the worries that we would not get the event in. Things ran very smoothly, and everyone was pleased with the racing. There were many repeat winners for the night, but the one name that seems to jump out the most is the last name Smith. Three different Smiths from three different families claimed double victories. Dave Smith #77 was the first to double, winning both the 40+ and 500 2-valve classes. He walked away from all of the other seniors, showing that the new KTM 350 was a serious weapon on the short track. The second Smith to take home two titles was the #41 of Colton Smith. Colton walked away in the 250B and Open B classes on his Don’s Kawasaki ride, despite his troubles in the 250 Sportsman class. In attempts to take the sportsman lead away from Roy Miller, Colton went down and was unable to fight his way back to the front. The third Smith to take home two wins was the #15 of little Cameron Smith. Cameron was able to hold off Colton’s little brother, Chase Smith, in the 150cc 4-stroke class and take the win. He also held off Chase, Trever Williams, and Douglas Cook in order to win the 85 7-11 class. Tyler Scott #70 impressed everyone with his rides and wins in the 50 (4-8) shaft and 50 chain (4-8) classes. Ethan Stroh was able to take over second in the shaft class followed by Milan Temple, Britney Thomas, Tyler Cunningham, and Dylan Cunningham. Stroh also came in second in the chain class followed by little Matthew Scibek. Scibek held off Nicholas Crone in the 50cc (7-8) class and took home the win. James Chapman #72 represented the older generation with his win in the 50+ class. Perry Phillips #18 got out front and ran Delta Short Track Series10/1/2011 Results 40+ 1) David Smith 2) Brett Friedel 3) Darren Phillips 4) Jack Stedding 5) Billy Young 50+ 1) James Chapman 125 2S / 86-150 4S Wtr (12 up) 1) Jeff Standiford 2) Todd Martin 3) Tyler A.

The 125 class win went to Riding Solutions’ Jeff Standiford #56 followed by Todd Martin, Tyler Rylee, and Josee Stedding. Matt Langrehr #13 rode his Bultaco to victory in the vintage class over John Howell. It was the #25 of Chris Thomas who won the eight-man main in the 65cc class. Trever Williams came in second followed by Karl Wheeler, Robert Wheatley, Damon Ream, Douglas Cook, Melanie Siegel, and Nicholas Crone. Kyle McGrane #3n pulled away from Tyler Rylee in the 85 12-15 class for the win. The Women’s class ended on a bad note when Elizabeth Fitch went down in turn four, where Nicole Henderson ended up on top of Fitch’s head. The race had to be stopped in order to remove the bike, ending the race. Erin Kissinger #32 ended up taking home the win followed by Delaney Cadden, Josee Stedding, Melanie Siegle, and Hailey Marshall. Nicholas Henderson #29 fought his way past Tyler Phillips in the Open A class and then walked away with the win. Henderson also won the Open Sportsman main. Joey Alexander #14 got a bad start in the Adult 100 class, but didn’t let them stop him. He battled his way past Matt Langrehr and then put in a charge to chase down Sam Bergman. With a lap to go, Alexander passed Bergman like she was sitting still and ran away with the win. All in all, it was a great night of racing and lots of fun. We need to thank the BCTRA for the wonderful job that they did.

PA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HARE SCRAMBLE SERIES 2011 SCHEDULE

Motorcycle Racing Action

Jimmy Decotis was the 250 Pro Class overall winner with 1-1 moto scores.

Jesse Pierce was the winner of the Iron Man Classic on Sunday as well as 7 of his 8 motos on Saturday.

Phil Nicoletti returned from a summer in Australia to win the first Open Pro moto.

Kawasaki Race of Champions Raceway Park, NJ • October 1-2, 2011 • By: Scott Lukaitis The motocross world was very different way back in 1976. Two-stroke machines dominated the racing scene, and current champions Ryan Villopoto and Dean Wilson weren’t even born yet. On the East Coast in the State of New Jersey a new track was only a year old. Old Bridge Township’s Raceway Park started racing on what was once an open field next to their drag strip. The Race of Champions was started as a special year-end event, and now 35 years later it is still going strong. Early on, the race was sponsored by a local country club, but when Kawasaki and their Team Green program came along a couple of years later the race took on its current sponsor. Over the years the Race of Champions has  been the site for stellar performances by a multitude of Team Green riders like Billy Liles and Donny Schmidt in the early days and most recently Kyle Chisholm and Ryan Sipes in more recent years. James Stewart and Ryan Villopoto even used the race to make the jump from minis to the full sized classes. Just about every top mini bike rider has at one time raced a Race of Champions event. Despite the current economic conditions and less than stellar weather predictions, more than 800 racers competed at what is known as the one event to attend in the Northeast each fall. Racing action takes place over the weekend, with practice on Friday; Mini, Amateur and Vet Racing on Saturday; and the Pro Expert and special event racing on Sunday. Saturday Racing Torrential rain on Friday drenched the already soft racetrack, and the rough and rutted conditions proved that only the best would succeed when it came to Saturday’s racing action. Mini bike racing was controlled by Kawasaki mounted Austin Forkner. The Loretta Lynn’s class winner won 5 out of 6 motos he entered to show the Northeast crowd how fast kids from the Midwest are. Forkner put on an excellent display of riding skills to take 3 overall victories and the first-place trophies. Novice class racing produced some of the best action on Saturday. Local racers Mike Giovanniello and Richie Trevelise have done battle all season long, and the KROC was no exception. This weekend Giovanniello got the better of Trevelise as he won 3 out of 4 motos and the overall in both the 250C and 450C classes.  Jesse Pierce was perhaps the most dominant racer all day long. The young Suzuki pilot was at the front of the pack when the checkered flag fell in 7 of the 8 motos he entered. The one moto he lost saw him starting from dead last to17th at the end of the first lap and 3rd place by the end of the moto, going by 37 racers in the process. Pierce will be a rider to watch at the

Mini Olympics coming this fall. Vet class racing was dominated by New England Team Green rider Keith Johnson. Kawasaki’s generous contingency for the event made Johnson’s  drive from Massachusetts worthwhile. He won 6 motos and 3 overalls in the 25+, 30+ and 40+ Expert classes. Sunday Racing  Sunday dawned with sunny skies and cool autumn temperatures. In addition to the premier class motos, there were three special intermission motos .The Iron Man Classic event for Amateur Racers was dominated by Saturday’s top racer, Jesse Pierce. He won going away and was rewarded with a new Kawasaki KLX110 for his victory. The Mt. Holly Kawasaki/Fox Mini Cycle Shootout was won by Austin Forkner, with Brandon Hartranft and Tanner Stack rounding out the top 3, and the Kessler Cup for 65cc racers was won by David Milana. The Expert class portion of the event began with the Traxxas Dash for Cash. The top 10 racers in morning qualifying would compete in a one-lap winner-takes-all moto. Connecticut’s Josh Clark was the winner. We would see more of Clark all afternoon. Geico Honda’s Jimmy Decotis has been coming to Raceway Park for the KROC since he raced mini bikes several years ago. Jimmy’s energetic and flashy riding style is a favorite to the fans in the Northeast, and Jimmy didn’t disappoint them this weekend. His 1-1 moto scores gave him the overall in the 250 Expert class. Decotis was followed across the line in moto #1 by Pennsylvania’s Mike McDade and local racer Ronnie Stewart. The second moto had Decotis out front again followed by Dash for Cash winner Josh Clark and McDade. Decotis scored the overall, while McDade’s 2-3 gave him second and Clark’ 4-2 was good for third. 450 class racing wasn’t as secure, as bike problems wiped out two of the top contenders. Back from his stint racing for the Monster Kawasaki team in Australia, Phil Nicoletti returned to Raceway Park. Hailing from New York state, Nicoletti has made several trips to this local track during his career. Nicoletti was the man to beat in moto #1, as he got to the front early and held on for the victory. Clark was 2nd, and 250 winner Decotis was third when the checkered flag fell. Moto 2 saw Nicoletti again battling for the lead with first-year pro Joey Peters. Nicoletti’s bike expired, and Peters had trouble shortly thereafter. Dakota Kessler was virtually born at Raceway Park and has raced there his entire life. Kessler’s hard work paid off with the second moto victory. Following Kessler and Clark was McDade in 3rd. Clark’s consistent 2-2 motos gave him the overall followed by Decotis (3-5) and McDade (7-3) for the overall.  Set your calendar for the first weekend in October next year for the 36th annual KROC.

42nd Annual Blue Gray District 7 Gold Series/Delaware State Championship New Castle, DE, September 24th and 25th • Ryan Henderson

“Kessler and Peters Split Wins in 250 and Open Pro Ams” Blue Diamond Motocross Park and the Baltimore County Trail Riders Association hosted the 42nd Annual Blue Gray, along with the 2011 Delaware State Championship. The crowd was on their feet to watch the 250 and Open Pro Am motos. James Coen #4 led the Open A charge into the first turn followed by Dakota Yohe #578, Joey Peters #535, and Tyler Wozney #760. Yohe was able to take the lead from Coen before the end of lap one, but it was Peters who worked his way out front by lap two. Wozney also made the pass on Yohe to take over the second spot. Peters began to check out, and it looked as though no one would catch him. After being involved in a first turn pile-up, Dakota Kessler #449 put his head down and made a charge through the pack. By the last lap Kessler worked his way up into second and closed the gap on Peters but was unable to make a pass by the finish. Peters wasted no time getting to the front in the start of the second moto. Coen held the second spot followed by Wozney and Kessler. Wozney and Kessler slipped past Coen and battled until Kessler began to pull away from Wozney. With one lap to go, Kessler was able to reel in Peters and take home the win, giving him the overall. Peters ended up with second followed by Wozney, Yohe, and Coen. The first moto of the 250 Pro Am began much like the Open. Coen grabbed the holeshot followed by Daniel Corbin #167, Peters, Wozney, Kessler, and Yohe. Corbin worked his way around Coen on the back of the track to take over the lead. Peters took over second at the end of the first lap and was all over Corbin. Peters took over the lead as Corbin dropped back. Kessler made the charge to the front and eventually took the win in the moto. Peters grabbed the holeshot in the second moto over Coen, Juan Sanchez #994, Yohe, Scott Carpenter #19, and Wozney. Peters checked out and let the competitors battle it out behind him. Yohe worked his way up to the second spot followed by Coen and Carpenter. Kessler had his troubles on the first lap and had to come from the back of the pack to salvage as many positions as he could. At the end of the moto it was Peters, Yohe, Coen, Carpenter, and Kessler. The overall went to Peters with his two - one finishes. We would like to thank the Baltimore County Trail Riders Association, Blue Diamond Motocross Park, members of MAMA, Lucas Oil, Ellicott City Motorsports, and Cycle Effex for all of their help with the event. Thanks to Pete’s Cycle for their generous donation of the KLX110 and for all their support. You can check out photos and articles on my website with updates on races at www.RHDesigns95s.smugmug.com.

Team Green PA State Championship Doublin Gap MX Park • September 24-25, 2011 • By: Jim Bull The AMA Team Green PA State Championship race came to the Doublin Gap MX Park in late September. With it came great weather for racing along with a good turnout of racers to chase the factory contingency money from all four of the Japanese manufacturers. As usual, Saturday offered a practice day for the racers prior to Sunday’s racing activities. This race is always exciting to watch, as it brings the best racers from both the eastern and the western parts of the state to do battle with one another and is always a prelude to the Tri-District Cup race that was held at Pleasure Valley in late October. In 250 A racing action, PAMX racers Dylan Slusser would swap the 3-1 finishes with Mike Mcdade’s 1-3 to take the overall

win. MDRA regular Broc Schmelyun would finish consistent 2-2 between them for second overall. In Open A action, the trio would again battle, with Mcdade taking the top spot followed by Schmelyun and RP Boswell from Boston, VA, in third. Slusser would grab fourth followed by Jeremy Cook in fifth. The day offered great racing action in all classes. You can check the results here, then log onto the MRA website to catch more action shots. A memorial ride was also offered in memory of Brad Kuehne, a former MDRA racer who was lost to a tragic traffic accident just over a year ago. A scholarship fund has been set up in Brad’s memory, and proceeds went to the worthy cause.

15 Element 22 helped entertain at this year’s event.

Annual Fundraiser Fredericksburg Fireman’s Park • September 24, 2011 Foundation 529 is a local organization that supplies protective head and neck gear to youths under 18 that might not otherwise be able to afford the right equipment. Many times the cost of competition can be so extreme that we tend to skimp on the most important part of the process – the protective gear. With bikes costing thousands of dollars, it’s sometimes hard for mom and dad to come up with another $300-400for a good helmet or a few hundred bucks for a neck brace. That’s where 529 steps in. They spend time at the local tracks and try to help out the kids who need it the most. I remember when I was racing way back before they had dinosaurs. Bell was one of the largest helmet suppliers around, and their marketing slogan was, “If you have a $10 head, then buy a $10 helmet.” The same holds true today, even more so with the faster bikes and more challenging tracks.

It was an allyou-can-eat, and this guy lost.

Foundation 529 works with Arai and some of the best quality manufacturers around for protective purposes. They raise money through fundraisers like today and by selling apparel and goods at the local races to raise money to supply these youth riders with the equipment they need to keep the sport both fun and safe. If you see them at a track, first off thank them for their efforts, then, if you can, leave some of your money behind to help protect the future of our sport. You can also make a donation by contacting them at foundation529@verizon.net.

MAMA at Budds Creek October 8-9, 2011 • Photos By: Lamarr Queen The Mid Atlantic Motocross Association held round # 13 of 14 back at their home track at Budds Creek in early October. Again our Budds photographer Lamarr Queen was on hand to catch the action on Sunday. If you can support Lamarr and his efforts, be sure to check out all his images at his website below. Remember race images are great for sponsors, look good on resumes for the upcoming season, and everybody loves a good wall hanger for the holidays. Thanks Lamarr for your efforts this year. Also please see our correction notice on the opposite page. We learned after we printed last month’s issue that we somehow got the wrong results inserted. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please see the results here for today’s event; we certainly hope they are correct. It’s been a great season representing your group, and we look forward to the coming seasons. As you’re reading this, round # 14 at Tomahawk will be in the books, and, of course, the big Maryland des States the last week of the month. We hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage this season, and as always we welcome your comments and suggestions. You can reach us by phone or online, and all of our contact information is in the front of the paper. We hope you all have a great off-season, and we’ll see you at the banquet.

Thunder in the Sand – Wildwood October 8-9, 2011 • By: Scott Lukaitis

The sounds of the ocean waves lapping against the sandy shore weren’t the only sounds you’d hear on the weekend of Oct. 8 and 9. On that weekend, the motorsport friendly town of Wildwood, New Jersey, played host to Thunder in the Sand. The event is held twice a year, once in the spring and once again in the fall, and takes place directly on the beach. That’s correct, any other weekend you’ll find beach towels and umbrellas, but this weekend is for motocross. There is a complete schedule of motocross and ATV racing, but the relaxed pace of one moto per class each day makes the weekend feel like a bit of a moto vacation. The racing action, however, certainly isn’t a vacation, as the generous pro purse brings RESULTS +25A: 1) Jesse Festenstine 2) Ryan Patterson +25B: 1) Joe Devizio 2) Saeed Abbaszadeh 3) Joseph Flazo 4) Frederick Seay, Jr 5) Sean Slattery +25C: 1) Heberton Lima 2) William Zicha 3) Hans Vanhethoen 4) Nick Pielli 5) Kyle Labaw 250 A: 1) Fran Lettieri 2) Dakota Kessler 3) Chris Duymich 4) Adam Blessing 5) Peter Devlin 250 B: 1) Dennis Payne 2) Chad Ciccarelli 3) Christopher Sreckovich 4) Dylan Allen 5) Mark Terpak 250 C (GROUP 1): 1) Donzi Dambrosa 2) Heberton Lima 3) Joshua Watson 4) Matt Cornish 5) Corey Wademan 250 C (GROUP 2): 1) Eric Osmundsen 2) Devon

out intense competition. The challenging track is laid out just feet from the ocean in between two piers of amusement rides. The sand on the beach is constantly shifting under the tires, and the water seeping up through the sand means getting a good start is essential. Local racers Frankie Lettieri and Dakota Kessler did battle all weekend long, with Lettieri taking the overall in the 250 A class and Kessler in second, then Kessler taking the Open A class with Lettieri taking second.

Motorcycle Racing Action

Christ Peace be with you. Greetings, I come to you from the Chaplain’s Corner of this wonderful publication, the MRA Magazine. Motocross for Christ has been blessed this year with all of you. I am proud to say I have met some of the best people through Motocross camps and races and can see great things for the future of our sport. Our wonderful sport relies on families like yours to come out and support the local venues. I have an opportunity next year to be a part of much more racing and support in what I believe God is calling me and my family to do. We will provide chapel services in 2012 at every MDRA 6 and 7 event, as well as Saturday night children’s activities. Motocross for Christ will also have chapel at MAMA and hold two camps again next year in 2012. I often wonder what the message is for God’s people, so I pray, and this is what God has placed on my heart to share with all of you. First, let me explain something. I never give you a message unless it is from God. I was called to deliver messages to God’s people. And yes! You are all God’s people, whether you know it or not. See God chose you, you did not choose God. Funny how that works, so no matter what you do, God has a purpose and a plan for your life. I wonder how many of us have struggles in life and have not reached out to that one person whom we can confide in and count on. I wonder if you are the one who always seems to have something going wrong, like bike breaks every race, tires going flat on the way to the track, a camper leaking, and through all this you do not know who to ask for help. Maybe you are one of the thousands that have been affected by rain this year. What do we do in all this distress; how do we get by and get through? We should be looking to God and praying for his strength and guidance as we may or may not know God provides for the righteous and unrighteous. As it rains too much or too little on one, it affects the others as well. The question is how do we get through these times? Racing is like life. We have good races, and sometimes we have bad races, how we get through is what counts. Sometimes no matter what we do, we cannot keep the bike upright and going. Life is like racing, and what do racers in Motocross do when things fail? We press on because we are built to persevere no matter how long the race is. We train for this, we look to our families, mechanics and trainers and ask them to help and guide us. In life when things get tough, we need to persevere also. I want you to think of this passage from the book of James, chapter 1, verse 12, the

next time you need to keep it going. 12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. What God is telling us here is just like the race we enter each week at the track: we must persevere. We must get up and keep going to get to the finish line and receive the trophy. The trophy has much more meaning in the race of life. The race we need to keep our eyes on is eternity; the things that break and fail us here are little compared to eternity. If we call on God (family), Christ (Mechanic) and Holy Spirit (Trainer), they will guide us and help us. And we can receive the trophy in Heaven and live forever with our Lord and Savior if you will just persevere and finish the race with help from your team. Jesus Christ came to give abundantly, and though we do not always see this abundance in times of life struggles, remember what you do have. You are given each day to live and breathe; you are allowed to continue to race and to have wonderful relationships at the track; you’re allowed to see your son get his first trophy or receive your first trophy. All these are blessings and abundance in our lives. So do not quit, do not give up, live lives that are holy and pleasing to God. He will always be there to help you get through the rough stuff on and off the track if you will just call on his team and let him lead you through. God Bless, Racing Rev. Roy Craig and Family (www.Motocrossforchrist.com)

4th Annual Big Bucks Weekend and Pagoda Motorcycle Club Birdsboro, PA – Oct. 8-9, 2011 • By: Jim Bull Early October took us to the grounds of the Pagoda Motorcycle Club for their annual Big Bucks weekend. This event has always been good and continues to grow with each passing year. The weekend was a Pro Am event, and for the first time ever a special Women’s class program was added to the fray. The weekend started off with the regular Saturday practice session for all bikes; however, the women were treated to a special free day of practice at the track along with a Sunday paid race admission. As a matter of fact, for the women the weekend started Friday at the GPMX compound for some training with some of the local pro racers and local mx trainer Greg “Frenchie” Pamart. Saturday evening back at the track the top finishers in the Mainline Series received their awards and free refreshments courtesy of both Pagoda and Sleepy Hollow. After the awards, there was free entertainment in the famous Pagoda Clubhouse for those that weren’t in bed early preparing for the race day ahead. On Sunday we awoke to beautiful sunny weather with temps in the low 80s, a rare occurrence lately here in our neck of the woods. Most weekends we would have been better off racing Jet Skis, but that’s a story for a different day. Also on Sunday morning I had the pleasure of visiting Pagoda’s future site with a tour from Pagoda ambassador Big Jim Munch. The current goal is to be moved to their new location by late 2012 or early 2013. The new facility is located only a few miles east of their current location and will offer more room for parking plus all the amenities that you currently find on the Pagoda grounds. The Big Bucks weekend showed us some excellent competition in all classes. There was $3,000 plus 120% payout on the line for the expert divisions, and we saw Tony Archer win the lion’s share of that purse. Broc Schmelyun would be the only racer to get a moto win over Archer on the day, but it wouldn’t be enough to top the podium. The amateur, novice and age classes all proved to be worth watching, with some special class structures in the Vet divisions. The biggest story on the day was the first ever Women’s Open MX program run in conjunction with this popular event. We saw 26 female racers come to the gate to battle for over $3,500 in cash and prizes. The Women can’t earn cash obviously because of their amateur status, but gift cards and merchandise were awarded, and the racing was spectacular. We saw a few of the WMX Ladies at Pagoda, and Chelsea Newbold would stand atop the podium at the end of the day. Amanda Brown would best her in the second moto, but Brown’s fourth-place finish in the first moto would keep her in second overall for the day. It was a great weekend of racing with perfect weather and a great crowd on hand. As usual, the Pagoda club members had the place in top notch condition, and with the vendor row atmosphere it was almost like a mini national. Props to the club, the racers and the promoters of this event; what a way to wind down the season at one of the area’s most popular venues.
