Our last Tuesday race of August saw a great turn out. 117 Full Track Riders and an amazing group of 26 half trackers sprung up on us and made for an exciting night of racing. Motos 2 and especially 3, were run under the lights adding to the intensity.
5 and Under Novice male running a main with brothers Darion Kennedy and Tyson Kennedy going one-two to the line.
Our Cruiser open saw the same craziness.
In the 'A' main we had Dustin Pospolita edge out a hard charging Daniel Pellikan and Nico Richard.
Ladies Cruiser main winner McKenzi Mc-Hale-Boulter edged out Alanah Lewis for the one.
The girls continued their domination on the track with Karsen Tielen walking away with wins in all 3 motos of 12 Expert male, Reighan Hill grabbing 3 and taking the One in 10 Expert Female, Bryn Harvey going for 3 and taking the one, in 9 Novice Female, Cayden Libby hanging on and taking the one in 7 Novice female, and Payton Elliott bringing out the power for one in 6 and Under Novice Female.
Have you looked at our Track standings lately? We have 4 fast girls in the top 5 spots and 6 in the top 10. Incredible, I don't think we have ever seen that. Watch out boys, these up and coming girls are FASSSST!
Race results and Track standings are updated.
