Last years Memorial
Day Race had a very nice crowd with 180 riders in
attendance. The difference this year was that coupled
with the holiday there was a National event in Pottstown
PA. where we knew a good number of riders who are
regulars at Foothills, were competing. None the less,
138 riders with 34 motos on a beautiful day would
still provide some exciting racing.
Six time State
Champion Shawn McAuley was the Flag-Bearer in a impressive
parade lap before the start of todays action and Chloe
Arnold was selected as last weeks Rider of the Week.
Kyly Milton was named as her favorite rider.
With only four
classes with more then six riders registered, there
were only four main events needed. In as much as none
of those classes had more then eight riders in them,
all would make their main events. (Remember the NBL
rule is that you dont put more then six riders in
the gate for motos. If there are seven riders in a
class they are split into two groups but all transfer
onto the seven rider main event.)
The first main
of the day was for the 10 yr old Rookie class. With
Brandon Galeski (Gold Seal Roofing) and Joe Petrino
Jr. both perfect through their motos, it looked like
it would be a classic shootout between the two in
the main. Galeski won the main but the spunky Dustin
Petosa would make a sweet pass on Petrino to capture
the second spot while Petrino settled into third.
The 9 yr old Rookie
main was just as unpredictable. Garrett Fosbrook was
perfect through his motos as was Nick Piper. Piper
had to work the hardest as he came from behind every
time to win his three motos. In the Main Fosbrook
continued his dominance but Jason Lee proved he was
in it to win it with a solid second. The third spot
went to Wes Keating while Piper settled for a fourth.
The 7 yr old Rookie
Main had the same type of situation with James Cox
and Ian Fosbrook winning all their motos. So the main
went to Cox while A & S Construction’s Carter
Stroh finished in the two spot. Torin Ellis was third.
The 5 & Under
class was dominated by Sam DeGrange (Bertera Chrysler
/ Jeep inc.) as he won everything. Anthony Star-Bennett,
after crashing hard in his third round of motos, came
back to finish second in the main. Third went to Kraig
Geissler in his first race ever.
In other Rookie
action Matt Bennett won the 17 & over group with
Garrett Gracie second and George Haydock third.
The 15 rookie
class went to John Orlando as he stayed in front of
Mike Castle in all three rounds.
A full gate full
of 14 yr old Rookies featured two moto wins for Kevin
Ralvin however, a crash in the second round would
force him to need to win the tie breaking third round
to finish ahead of Dylan Vadney for the overall win
and he did just that. Third place overall went to
Darren Zimmerman (David J. Mahoney Painting).
With four riders
in the 13 rookie class they would finish in the same
order all three rounds. Jake Marconi, John McKay and
Jamie Lamb were 1-2-3.
In 12 rookie action
it would be another full gate with 6 riders going
for the gold. Connor Arnold won all three rounds giving
him the overall title. Mike Wasilonsky was second
with the third spot going to Chris Stewart.
The 11 yr old
Rookie class saw Matt Dillon look like “The
Marshall and his Posse” as he just led everyone
around the track. Finishing second was Nick Bates
while the third spot went to Austin Stoeke.
The 8 yr old Rookie
class saw Jon Todd wreck in the first round then come
back and win the next two. He would have to settle
for second place as Seth Norton was the most consistent
and came out at the overall winner. Third was Dustin
In 6 yr old action
Lucas North, Ian Hayes and Mason Holderman finish
were racing today and Nicole Milton would stay in
front of Autumn Classy in the combined class of 14
girls-17 & over woman.
Alexus Doty did
the same to Michele Gamelin in 11 girls / 12 girls
Lanie Stroh (K
& R Services) was the only 9 yr old and had to
race 5 other 10 yr olds. She would finish 5th but
the win did go to Kyly Milton who had another perfect
day. Second was Chloe Arnold while third went to Helen
Elizondo. Helen had the scariest crash of the day
but would prove to be okay after a little recovery
won the 8 yr old class as she beat second place finisher
Gianna Spina and third place finisher Ashley Lamont.
(X-Treme Marine) won the 5-7 class with second place
going to Chloe Lee and Azra Milton third.
There were only
two class of novices that had enough riders to prevent
combining with experts. In 12 nov action Trevor Fox
would earn a rare move-up for himself by winning all
three motos. Second place went to Aaron Kawalski and
third went to Austin Lillis.
In 11 nov action
is was a full gate but Bryan Basile would still be
the dominate rider winning everything. Even though
he had 3 third place finishes it would prove to be
enough for a second place overall for Scott Thomson.
Third went to Erik Dugan after a nasty crash in the
A lot of combining
would be required for four riders breaking down to
a class like 17-18 nov / 26-34 ex / 41 & over
nov. Mike Greco was the only expert and he dominated.
The second spot went to Jon Daversa (Dave’s
Auto Detailing) while third went to Jay Francis.
15 ex was combined with 15 nov and the results were
nearly a clean sweep by the experts. Zack Andringa
won it while Nate Basile was second and novice rider
Tim Osborne third.
In 14 expert /
14 novice combined class it would be Austin Cyr continuing
his dominate year with another perfect score. Shawn
McAuley was second and Jashua Rivera was third.
12 expert / 13
nov action featured only 1 expert and he was a no-show.
With chance Terpening no where to be found it was
up to the three novices to battle it out. Three novice
riders and three different moto winners would make
this one up for grabs. Wes Reel would be the overall
winner with Drew (Dusty) Scheinost second and Matt
In 9 ex / 10 nov
combined Sky Domain was to only expert racing and
he won the class. Mackenzie Atchison was second with
jon Maura third.
In 8 nov / 9 nov
combined Jagur Layman was unbeatable. Lucas Petosa
was second with Alex Kuehn third.
6 and 7 yr old
noves were also grouped together and Finny Milton
would ace three wins. Derek Eisenbach was second each
time and third overall went to Justin Falasco.
In Cruiser action
the 50 & over class went to Butch Feitel as no
one could beat him. Joey Watley came the closest with
a second while George Cox remained mired in the third
Greg Sloan and
Tom Kuehn would trade wins in the first two rounds
of 30-34 / 35-39 action but tom would win the third
round with Gina Layman finishing behind them both.
and R J Miville had a classic battle in the first
two rounds of 11-12 / 13-14 / 15-16 cruiser action
as they traded wins. In the end it would be Drew Scheinost,
RJ Miville and Brett Geissler the official order of
8 & under
combined with 9-10 cruisers would see Jon Maura winning
it, Alex Kuehn second and Lane Maher just touching
