National Hare and Hound Round 3 Preview
NHHA ROUND 3 in sunny Southern California!
In just three short days, Round 3 of the AMA/Kenda National Hare and Hound Championship Series will be in full swing as this third round of racing makes for the southern most stop on the 2011 circuit. District 38, Roadrunner Off Road Racing along with Threat Racing will play host to their annual “King of the Desert” National Hare and Hound this Sunday in the Superstition OHV area. 100 miles of El Centro terrain have been laid out for racers to enjoy. As always, it’s not just about the pros at the National Hare and Hound Series, as the amateur program will have plenty for all to write home about.
Making his first stop in El Centro in quite some time, FMF/KTM’s Kurt Caselli hopes to return to the top of the box yet again as a break in his San Felipe pre-running will pit him against another Baja ace, JCR Honda’s Kendall Norman. The returning champ will make another quick trip north (in between pre-running for San Felipe) in hopes to land on the podium for the first time this year.
Team Kawasaki’s factory racer, Destry Abbott, and privateer, Jacob Argubright, are both eager to have a good showing here in El Centro and Argubright hopes to make up for his DNF at this round just one year ago in the mud and torrential rain. The talk of the weekend however will be the Purvines Honda Racing Team as David Pearson looks to lead his teammates, Carl Maasberg and new red rider Justin Morrow, to spots on top of the podium.
Add to the mix the local talent of Beta mounted Cameron Corfman, as well as the rest of the District 38 fast guys, and we could have the makings for a big upset when it is all said and done. One thing’s for sure down here in El Centro, RAIN IS NOT IN THE FORCAST! 80-degree days are expected for the weekend and it should be a perfect time in the Superstition Mountains.
District 38 is known for its larger quad presence, and Round 3 should be nothing short of exciting as the largest turnout of ATV racers are expected for the year here at Round 3. The pro support classes are in full swing by this point in the season, and the ATV Pro class will be anyone’s game when the checkered flag is flying. Alpinestars, Works Connection and MadJack Racing/AMSOIL have all stepped up to join Kenda with give-aways here at Round 3.
