|Round 7 - Race Report|
|When the sun rose on Sunday in Cowpens, it did not
compare to the smiles on the faces of the ten PeeWee and Super PeeWee
riders waiting for the start of the race. Colby Howard was running wheel
to wheel with Brody Johnson when he had the misfortune of colliding with
a red four wheeler driven by the landowner. Colby escaped injury, which
we are all thankful for, but Brody was able to get out front and
maintain the lead until the checkered flag came out. Colby took second
followed by Carson Smith in third place.
Colby Burks was able to hold Brianna May off to take the win in the Super PeeWee Class.
After a brief riders meeting with Ricky Towery at 9:00 a.m., the Mini Quads went to the starting line. Ashleigh Davis was the winner in the Modified Class with Matthew Shepherd and Eric Bayne finishing out the top three positions. Colton White was the 90cc winner, followed by Jon-Michael Rainey and Deanna Canipe. Cassie Rudisill was able to finish the race after having an encounter with a tree, thankfully she was ok.
When 10:00 o’clock rolled around, the Youth Bikes were ready to go into the woods and show off their skills. For the first time ever, these riders got the experience of a creek jump and 90% of them chose to jump instead of going around! Benjamin Hughes took the win in the Senior Mini’s, followed by Cody Jeffers and Damon Oakes. Jordan Smith led the Intermediate Mini’s with Jon-Michael Rainey and Grant Baylor right behind. Jonathon Johnson, Nick Vassey and Brandon Chapman were the top three in Junior Mini’s. Congratulations also to 65cc winners, Taylor Johnson, Dalton Hall and Tucker Hamrick.
By the start of the Bike race at 12:00 o’clock, the temperature was rising, the sun was beaming down and the crowd was ready to see a wheel to wheel race. They were not disappointed. Steward Baylor got into the woods first but he definitely was not alone. It was a hard fought race; but Jesse Robinson was able to hold Steward Baylor off and take his first win of the year.
The Quad race at 3:00 was one that started with Taylor Kiser hitting the woods first with Bryan Cook close behind. This race was a wheel to wheel race the entire time. Kiser held the lead but Cook, Santo Derisi, and Dustin Canipe kept him in their sights. When the day ended, Kiser took home the win. Angela Horn led the Women’s class with Kari Woody and Breanna Seagle right behind. Jerry "Wildman" Ledford was the winner for the Masters class as well as the Quad rider on the plaque.
Congratulations to every Mid East Rider!! Enjoy the break!!
