Team Absolutely Dominates Unadilla With Seven Overall Wins After enduring their fair share of bad luck and misfortune (AKA: Millville & Sunday Creek), it seemed that the stars aligned just right for Team Media Allstars. With a roster loaded with talent it was just a matter of time before it showed on the results page. A race season has its ups and downs; sometimes it’s hard to remember the good times as you get frustrated with your current situation. Rounds seven and eight of the 2011 ATVA MX Championship saw Team Media Allstars put up solid finishes as Josh Holley took his first national win at Sunday Creek and Calen McGinty took home two podium finishes in the same weekend at Spring Creek, but the rest of the team couldn’t buy a break or so it seemed. Jake McGraw had to borrow bikes to ride, Chase Cunningham found his motor looked more at home on a work bench than on the quad, even Mr. Consistency Dylan Tremellen scored a 9th place, his worst finish in over two years. Strange how in just one race weekend everything can fall into place. World famous Unadilla Valley Raceway was the site of round nine of the ATV MX National Championship Series, known for it’s fast straightaways, massive elevation changes, rocky soil and of course….the Sky Shot! Team Media Allstars took right too the tricky Unadilla race course and showed their competition the fast way around it for most of the weekend. The Team MVP for the 2nd race in a row was Josh Holley #7. Josh has found his stride, and is riding a wave of momentum and confidence that should keep him out front. After winning the 70 single speed class at Sunday Creek Josh’s confidence was at an all time high. He showed his competition that he plans to continue his hot streak. Josh won both the 70 Single Speed and 70 CVT classes at Unadilla, and he did it very convincingly. In fact Josh won every moto he entered going 1-1 in both classes. Dan Hoisington #71 and Calen McGinty #33 both earned their first national wins of the season. Dan got great holeshots and rode smart in the 450B class to go 2-1 and take the overall, while Calen made the best of a bad start in his second moto of Production B, charged to the front and never looked back as he went 1-1 for the win. Nick Lepkoski #28 won the award for longest drive, but the Georgia rider made it worth the trip with a dominating performance in the Open C class as he went 1-1 for a win as well. Nick may have had a shot at two overalls, but a minor mechanical issue in the second moto of the 450-C class cost him any hopes of a decent finish. Mark #636 and Dale Batson #671 represented the team well in the Vet 30+ class over the weekend. Dale went 8-6 for 6th overall and Mark rode his way to 11-7 scores for 9th. Matthew Holley #9 (Josh’s little brother) keeps steadily improving from race to race, and scored 5-8 moto finishes earning him 6th overall in the 50 Sr. (6-8) class. One rider who just can’t seem to catch a break is Team Manager Chase Cunningham #419, Unadilla made it four races this year that the #419 machine has had major OEM engine part failures. This time the Crankshaft let go, sending the piston rod through the engine cases. Chase’s weekend looked all but done, but thanks to an all night effort from Pat, Donnie and Toby at MotoXperts Chase was able hit the track Saturday morning. Despite piecing a motor together, Chase still only missed a win by two turns as he held off former Pro Class Champion Travis Spader til the checkers were in sight, in what may have been the best race of the weekend. The 2-2 scores earned him 2nd overall in the 25+ class and moves him back into the points lead. Jake McGraw #83 got back to his winning ways at round nine. Jake used his MotoXperts engine to pull four massive holeshots and take home the win in 4-stroke A as he went 1-1. Jake finished up 2nd overall in the Open A class giving him two solid performances, and after his recent string of bad luck, it was a welcomed relief. Dylan Tremellen #940 showed us all that he’s extremely hungry for another national championship; Dylan is bound and determined to claim the 4-stroke B class title in 2011. The #940 put his machine out front early and never looked back going 1-1 and earning his fifth overall Win of the season. With the win it gives Dylan a comfortable point’s lead going into round ten at Red Bud. We’ve been primed all season long to issue a statement of complete domination at the ATVA MX Nationals, and at Unadilla that statement was finally made. With Seven overall wins and another Four second place overall finishes, it’s safe to say Team LSR, Morehead Motorsports, Media Allstars turned heads. This is the Team’s best weekend showing since their 2005 “High Point Massacre” we Won every class we entered. Coincidentally, it was while on Lonestar & Maxima products both times. With the series heading to Red Bud and Loretta’s it’s safe to say we might just have a repeat performance.
