|Round 5 - Race Report|
|The overcast skies and misty rain did not stop the
PeeWee and Super PeeWees from being on the starting line at 8:00 a.m.
ready to race. The starting line had familiar faces and news ones as
well. Hunter Chapman made his racing debut in the PeeWee class showing
the Chapman skill at racing. When the checkered flag dropped, Colby
Howard, Michael Overstreet and Brody Johnson were the first three riders
to cross the finish line. Cole Bates, Brianna May and Johnathon McBee
led the Super PeeWee class.
At 9:00 a.m. the mud was getting slicker and the mist heavier. However, there were 19 youth quad riders ready to tackle the track. Ashleigh Davis was the winner in the Modified class, followed by Eric Bayne and Britton Vitolo. Colton White won the 90cc class with Deanna Canipe finishing in second followed by Hagan Shumate.
Youth Bike riders were ready to try their skills in the mud at 10:00 o’clock. Those who ride in this class are the ones that we will be watching in the 12:00 noon race before long and there is a lot of talent in these young riders! Benjamin Hughes won the Senior Mini class with Trey Hicks and Lincoln Lynn finishing second and third. Grant Baylor was on the move to win his class followed by Jon-Michael Rainey and Casey Leatherman. The Junior Mini class was won by Mack Jones followed by Jack Reep and Nick Vassey. Taylor Johnson, Hunter Bradshaw and Conner Smith were the top three winners in the 65cc class.
By 12:00 we had gotten more rain and the mud was now slick as glass and thick. That 20-30% chance of rain was now 100%! When the checkered flag dropped the pro riders took to the woods with Yamaha leading the way. The bikes battled the mud and rain as well as each other. When the final lap was made, Corey McDonald took the checker flag followed by Charles Huegel and Matthew Nix.
By the time the quads went to the starting line, the rain had stopped but the damage was already done. Bryan Cook and Dustin Canipe were wheel to wheel from beginning to end. The rain may have stopped, but the mud was still there clinging to everything and everyone possible. Cook was able to hold Canipe off and he took his 4th win of the season. Dustin Canipe placed second followed by Norm Cornell.
