The B classes seemed a little more competitive today versus yesterday. So many battles occurred in almost every B class race, mainly for the lead. Bad starts, crashes, and mistakes led these battles. Lead changes, as well as racers charging through the pack throughout the day made for great entertainment and amazement. Dakota Alix and Anthony Rodriguez are just two of the racers that had an amazing battle.

The dirt, almost just like yesterday was phenomenal. Huge ruts continued to form throughout the day, making the track bot brutal and amazing at the same time. Many racers are pretty pumped on how the track has been this week, and we hope to see it stay that way over the last two days.

As always, the A class is exciting to watch. These guys are the fastest here this week, continuously putting down the fast lap times, and the battles that continue to happen are always a plus! Jeremy Martin seems to have this track dialed, and continuously kills it every race. Besides Martin, the other front runners tend to be Mitchell Oldenburg, Vann Martin, Kyle Swanson, and Luke Renzland.

Aside from his spectacular lap times and results that he’s put down all week, Jeremy Martin was running away with 1st place in his pocket, when on the last lap, his bike suddenly died, and he couldn’t get it to start. He continuously kicked, and kicked with no result. As for the Way Martin handled this situation, he was completely calm, which isn’t the norm when things like this happen. Definitely earned more respect from me. Bummed for him, but definitely looking forward to him doing well going into the second motos.

Jennifer Burton, Kayla Solheid, and Brianna DeGray look to be the front-runners in the women’s class this week. Burton left with a 1, followed by Solheid and DeGray.

The 85 12-14 mod class definitely proved to be one of the most competitive classes out here this week. The top 10 racers are from all over the US, and has supplied this class with talent. Hoeft,  Markoff, Purther, Maxey, and Eaton are only a few of the kids in this class. Hoeft left this one with the win, no surprise there, but should be a good race second moto.

The supermini class never disappoints, and is definitely the fastest small bike class. After pierce got a bad start, he continued to battle and move through the pack of racers all looking to gain positions. Pierce got all the way to second, but couldn’t get close enough to completely put the move on Hoeft to come away with 1, instead Pierce will go into the second moto with a 2, and Hoeft with a 1, which should make for some awesome racing in this class!

The first 2 races had second motos today, which presented Cooper Webb and Andrew Pierce titles already this week! Tomorrow will shine the light on the champions as this week begins to come to a close.

Oakley presented the racer with fastest qualifying practice time in each class a watch worth $700, Andrew Pierce and Jeremy Martin both walked away with a total of 4 watches a piece.

It seems that almost every racer has their own little “thing” they do before a race. It appears as though Bisceglia, Webb, and Kiesel all have that in common. Whatever it is, definitely works for them.
