27 Make-Up Race
Time for a make-up race and historically they do not
draw a whole lot of riders. Employing the NBL’s
two moto transfer system for both races seemed to
work out well as 167 riders stayed around for it and
were split into 43 motos.
Moto 1 was mixed with 17-18x and 26-34x bunched together.
A third and a first for Don Hottes was good enough
for him to enjoy an overall win. William Barna was
second and Kyle Strong third.
Moto 2 was another combined class with 14X / 15X and
15N grouped into one 5 rider moto. Austin Cyr was
perfect but it was not easy as Shawn McAuley really
made him work for it and he finished second. Tim Osborne
13 year old Experts were up next and Ryan McCoy started
off great with a win in the first round. A fourth
place finish in the second round killed his chances
for a win but it still was good enough for a second
place overall finish. Dan Delisle would win the class
and Ian Dickinson was third.
As the 14 yr old girls took the track Nicole Milton
(17 & over woman) was thrown in the mix and she
won the first round. She must have backed off in the
next round as she was fourth so when the dust settled
it would be Autumn Classey the winner with Nicole
second with Katie Moody third.
Jess Maher stayed for the second race and she beat
Michele Gamelin in moto #5 for the 13 yr old girls.
Alexus Doty and Isabella Sanchez were the two combatants
in 11 yr old girls racing and it was Doty again in
this race holding off Isabella.
Moto 7 and 8 were the 9-10 girls motos and Kyly Miton
and Helen Elizondo were the two girls who won all
their motos. The Main went to Kyly and Chloe Arnold
snuck into the second spot just ahead of Helen.
What a comeback and vacation send off for Gianna Spina.
Earlier in the day she won the Rider-Of-The-Week award
then came back from a wreck in the first race of the
day to win everything in this race. Rosie Brazee was
second and the third spot went to Ashley Lamont.
The 5-7 girls class (moto #10) had five little ladies
in it. Hope Maher (Looking like a cross between Darth
Vader and an Imperial Storm Trooper) stayed in front
of Rileigh Valliere for the win, Rileigh second and
Chloe Lee (Mirror Polishing and Plating) third.
Moto 11 was for 35-40X / 41 & over Nov and Mike
Sigrist raked up first place points in both rounds.
Second place was Fred Roy while third was up for grabs;
it would go to Enrik Benazic.
Jason Kellogg and Jimmy Ferris battled hard in moto
12 (16-17-18Nov) and the tie breaker went to Kellogg.
Jon Daversa (Dave’s Auto Detailing) seemed to
be out of gas and did not show for the second round.
12X-13N action saw Doug Cable put his colors in the
winner’s circle for the first time this year.
Robbie DesMarais (Bikers Edge) was a close second
while the third spot went to Wes Reel.
Moody, Fox and Lillis was the order all day in 11X-12N
A full gate of 10X-11N riders was the case in moto
#15. Justin Boissonneault put the hex on everyone
as he was perfect. Jake DesMarais edged out Bryan
Basile for the second spot.
Sky Domain put those familiar Stampede colors out
front all day in 10N-9X action with Jon Moura, wearing
the same colors for two and third was Dallas Tuttle.
8x-8N-9N was the mixed bag in moto 17. Lucas Petosa
won the class with Zach Ferris (Tactical Arms) second
and Colin Riggs third.
Moto 18 saw Finny Milton lay claim to fame as he aced
a perfect score keeping Derek Eisenbach and Landon
Richard behind him in a class made up of 6-7 yr old
Butch Feitel and Joey Watley did battle in the 50
& over Cruiser class with Butch coming out the
winner but Joey is getting that old “Eye of
the Tiger” look back in his eyes.
Gina Layman again beat Therese Campbell as she uses
that as a tune up to the upcoming Worlds in South
One of the hardest fought battles of the entire day
was in the 30-34 / 25-39 / 40-44 Cruiser class with
Bob DesMarais, Tom Kuehn and Greg Sloan really goin
hard for the glory. At the end it was Bobby, Greg
and Tom in that order.
While Dan Delisle won every moto in 13-14 Cruiser,
Chris Pannullo (National Mail Service) and Ian Dickinson
were battling hard for the second spot which eventually
would go to Dickinson.
In 12 & under / 12-13 Cruiser action Jayna Roy
was feeling generous and let Hope (Half of Jayna’s
age) take home the first place points.
R.J. Miville topped Pete Franolich in 11-12 Cruiser
Alex Kuehn; Dallas Tuttle and Jon Moura was the order
of finish in the 8 & under / 9-10 cruiser class.
Motos 26 through 42 were the rookies and Matt Bennett,
Ted Faulise and Garrett Gracie all won motos in the
16 – 17 & over class. In the main event
it would be faulise, Haydock and Foster 1-2-3. Bennett,
after finishing 7th, was heard to say “I got
nothing left” as he left the facility.
In 15 Rookie racing it was Mike Castle and Liam Stone
trading moto wins. With the second round being the
tie breaker in a two moto system it would be Castle
the winner, Stone second and John Orlando third.
Dave Lamb got the job done in 14 rookie action as
he was perfect. Dylan Vadney was second and the third
spot went to Darren Zimmerman (David J. Mahoney).
The 13 Rookie class went to Jamie Lamb over Mike Michaelides.
Connor Arnold won his motos and the 12 yr old Rookie
main event. Mark Tully second and Chris Stewart was

Roberge second and Ty Bourgoin third.
William Guido (Big Johnson’s Guitars), Dustin
Petosa and Brandon Galeski (Gold Seal Roofing) all
won 10 yr old Rookie motos. In the main event Galeski
was uncatchable. Guido second and Petosa third.

class right through the main event. Wes Keating was
second and finishing third was Jason Lee (Mirror Polishing
Jonathan Todd aced yet another perfect in the 8 Rookie
class as he won all his motos plus the main. Ethan
Dauphinais was second and solid third place trophy

Just as he did in the first race of the day. Matt
