2011 4 Aces AMA National Hare & Hound Results
KTM Kurt Has Them Kovered!
Podium finishers talking with "Announcer Dude", George Antill
I did not get out to the race yesterday. I was feeling a little less than perfect and the thought of racing 90 miles of whoops out at Red Mountain just didn’t really do it for me. But it looks like nothing was bothering Kurt Caselli as he pretty much put a whooping on everyone else that showed up. According to the time stamp on Mark Kariya’s camera the margin over David Pearson for the win was just over 7 minutes.
That is a pretty incredible win margin, considering Kurt was lined up against the best riders in the series. It was pretty much a replay of the first race of the season where Kurt lead the entire way, breaking down just in sight of the finish line. The story is that an aftermarket part in the motor had a failure and that has now been cured.
Kendall Norman got out to the early lead in the race. A crash let Kurt get in front. The Kendall got stopped for speeding at the alternate gas stop. The club held him long enough to allow David Pearson to take second position. Kendall would finish in fourth place behind Destry Abbott.

This is where Sarah Kritsch passed Women’s-class leader Shayla Fulfer (in the blue and white gear behind a bush on the left) for the lead and, ultimately, the class win. Her long legs seemed to help here. That brings Kritsch’s record to a perfect two for two.
Skyler Howes broke away from his 250cc A competition at the beginning of the second loop and won the class, finishing 11th overall.
Mike Whitcomb under heavy braking before an off-camber section at the beginning of loop two, en route to second in Super Senior A.
This rocky climb at the beginning of loop two proved to be very challenging for all but the top few, especially when someone in front of you got hung up.
The Pro autograph session on Saturday evening is getting to be a staple at the Nationals.
Johnny Campbell turned 40 on Friday, but his friends threw a small cake-and-presents gathering for him on Saturday evening. The gifts included a care package of necessities for Senior-class-eligible racers.
If you look closely, Skylar Howes (left) is looking at a fellow 250cc A racer who he was dicing with out of the pits at the start of loop two. Unfortunately for the other guy, he crashed hard dropping into this wash which was danger-marked on the main trail Howes is on. The other guy did get up later and seemed okay.
