Race Report August 29th, 2010
With a beautiful weather report, two
races scheduled and the last race for some of our
long time volunteers, this race was something special.
In the opening of race #1, Autumn Classey was named
the Rider of The Week for her efforts on August 15th,
our last race prior to last week’s race out.
She named Nicole Milton as her favorite. Due to an
injury her mom accepted the award on her behalf.
With 171 riders split into 51 motos there were a lot
of early motos where the number of riders in them
was somewhat low but, none-the less, the action was
fun-tastic! This would be a two moto system so the
best of your two motos is counted again as a score
in the imaginary moto not run.
Andrew Cox, rarely seen in anything but jeans, was
decked out in a full uniform and, if anything, it
made him even faster. He had no problem acing a perfect
in the 17 & over expert class. Stampede’s
Chris Giacomazzo was second with Pauley Maher third.
In 13 Expert action Chance Terpening won the first
moto but was M.I.A. for the next round. By default
Dan Delisle would capture the win with Chris Pannullo
(Fusco’s Used Auto Parts) second and Ian Dickinson
In 14 Expert action Chris Therriault showed he can
race as well as jump as he was unbeatable. Doug Cable
and Jon Zeiner had a great battle for the second spot
which eventually went to Jon.
The scariest race of the day was in the second round
of racing in the 7-8x / 8 nov class. As Carter Stroh
(A & S Construction) was racing over the camel
jump by the tower, his bike totally broke in half
sending him crashing to the hard clay. He walked away
uninjured but the bike is definitely terminal. WOW.
Hunter Zeiner won the class with Derek Fantano second.
In 17 & over woman’s action it would be
only Christine Grysbek and Nicole Milton competing.
Nicole would be the winner this day.
In 14 Girls racing Jess Maher had it all her way as
she scored a perfect with Jayna Roy and Carlie Arnold
in tow behind her.
Ashley Oshiro, joining us from Levittown New York
ran into maybe the most determined rider in the house
as Michaela Groves returned after being sidelined
with an injury since the third week in May. Michaela
was not going to be denied and she was today’s
Alexus Doty had it all her way in the 12 Girls class
as Samantha Lumbra could only touch the gate virtually
handing today’s win to Alexus.
Isabella Sanchez beat Helen Elizondo in the two rider
11 yr old Girls class.
With 7 riders in the 10 girls class the group was
split into two motos. Chloe Arnold won her grouping
while Kyly Milton did the same in hers. At the main
event showdown, it would be Kyly edging out Chloe
for the win. Chloe Bourgoin was a solid third.
Gianna Spina topped Ashley Anderson in the 9 Girls
Hope Maher did the same to Ashley Jasensky (X-Treme
Marine) in the 8 Girls class.
Chloe Lee (Mirror Polishing and Plating) edged out
Azra Milton in 5-7 Girls action.
In 16x / 17-18 Novice action Austin Cyr put another
win in the record books with a perfect score. Jason
Kellogg finished second with the third spot going
to Roberto Elizondo.
Shawn McAuley, Dave Lamb and Chris Pfeffer (George’s
Music Center) was the order in 14X / 15N racing.
In 14 Novice racing Drew Scheinost beat out Samir
Licul and Dylan Vadney in some of the best racing
of the afternoon.
Wes Reel, in the 13 Novice class, took care of business
by finishing ahead of Trevor Fox (Wild Side tattoo)
and Russ Campbell.
A nice turnout in the 11X / 12N class with 5 rider
going for the gold. Connor Arnold made short order
of the competition with yet another perfect. Dave
Moody was second with the third spot going to Erik
It would be the same rider count in the 10X / 11n
class and Jon Moura would be the most consistent rider
and would capture the overall win thanks to a 4th
place finish in the first round by Nick Cote’.
Nick would win the second round but settle for second
place overall. The third spot went to Matt Dillon.
The 10 yr old Novice class had a rare main event and
the win went to Brandon Galeski (Gold Seal Roofing)
as the only race he won but he sure picked the right
one. Nick Oshiro was second and Steve Hull, after
winning all his motos, had to settle for third.
In the 9 Novice class, Craig Lumbra was our winner.
Zach Ferris was second with Garrett Fosbrook third.
Fin Milton, Landon Richard and Matt Webb finished
1-2-3 in the 6X / 7N class. This was Landon’s
first race as an Expert and he will do just fine.
Joey Watley had to work hard to beat Len Ferris in
the 50 & over class. About as hard work as it
takes to get out of bed in the morning. For Len, that’s
probably a tough one also.
William Scheinost and Greg Fantano rode hard in battle
all day with Scheinost earning the win.
Gina Layman had it her way in the 35 & over Woman’s
Cruiser class as she topped Denise Classey and Therese
Campbell for the win.
In the combined class of 30-34 / 35-39 Cruisers it
would be Greg Sloan just edging out Garrick Yanosky
for the win. The third spot went to Alex Rivera. Yanosky
looked to be going at about 65% of capacity after
the injury a few weeks ago at another track.
A rack of six riders was the feature in the 13-14
/ 15-16 Cruiser class and it would be Dan Delisle
the winner with a perfect. Chris Pannullo (National
Mail Service) enjoyed a solid second while Drew Scheinost
Jayne Roy and Hope Maher were the two ladies in the
12 & under (Hope) and 13-14 class. Both would
R.J. Miville ad Pete Franolich finished 1-2 in the
9-10 cruiser class.
A large turnout in the 17 & over Rookie class
is always scary. This race had ten riders entered
and believe it or not the whole thing went off without
an incident. The main was exciting and was won by
Matt Bennett with Ted Faulise in close pursuit. Sam
Colon finished third.
The 16 Rookie class had 4 riders in it and, at the
end of the race it was Alex Molon winning it with
Gian Gonzelez second and the third spot went to Trevor
Liam Stone finished 1-2 in 15 Rookies.
Farren Zimmerman (David J. Mohoney Painting) came
back to win the 14 Rookie class just edging Ty Mowrey.
Third went to Kyle Brock.
Brandon Hulin, in his first trip here ever from Schenectady
New York, won the 13 Rookie class. Jamie Lamb was
second anf the third spot was filled by Evan Benis.
Austin Andrews got the best of Jeff Vadney and Mike
Cattey in 12 Rookie action.
The full gate of 11 yr old Rookie riders saw Julien
Roberge win it with Nick Bates second each moto and
third was Ty Bourgoin.
Dale Doty (Connecticut Wells) grabbed the checkered
flag in the 10 Rookie class as he managed to keep
Connor Calarco and Frankie Buckley behind him.
Ethan Russell-Ward, here for two weeks in a row, was
the one to beat in the 9 rookie class which featurd
a main event to sort through the 7 riders in the house.
Well, no one was able to pull it off so Ethan won
it with a perfect score. Second in the main was Jason
Lee (Mirror Polishing and plating) with third going
to Jordon Benis.
Another main was required in the 8 Rookie class. Danny
Osanitsch and Dustin Souza were perfect in their motos
so the showdown in the main was set to be a classic
and it was all of that. Danny pulled off the win with
Dustin a close second while the third position belonged
to Seth Norton.
Only two riders in the 7 Rookie class and Ian Fosbrook
got the best of Ryan Hayes in this one.
Another full gate, this time in the 6 Rookie class
saw Aman Egan claim the fame as he won every moto.
Lucas North was second with Jacob Morello third.
The last main of the day was for the ankle biters.
5 & Under Rookies saw Sam Degrange (Bertera Chrysler
/ Jeep Inc.) take home the win. Robbie Webb, after
a wreck in the second round, came back for a solid
second in the main whith the third position belonging
to Kraig Geisler.
