The Off-Camber Racing Team headed back south to West Point, Tennessee the 4th Round of the National Enduro Series and 2nd ISDE Qualifier. The weather was wet, cold and windy. Everybody at the track was expecting a beautiful, warm weekend, but Saturday was anything but that. It was really cold and had rained most of the night before. The pit area was good at absorbing most of the water, but the woods were not going to dry out any time fast. Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day, perfect for racing. The open areas dried fairly nice, but the woods did have some deep mud holes, especially after a couple hundred riders cruise through them.
This race was the 2nd ISDE Qualifier for Mandi Mastin. Mandi had qualified through the Texas round, but was signed up and expected to ride this event anyway, so she rode LOI anyway. Mandi is qualified for her 10th ISDE and is looking forward to racing Finland on her Husqvarna TXC250. Mandi will begin her fundraising for the event, so if any sponsors want to help, we sure could use any donations or ideas for fundraising! Mandi had a great day, with a great bike and ended up winning her class with a 46:21 for the day. Suzy Moody got 2nd with a 57:18. Suzy has done an ISDE in the past, but Mandi was unsuccessful in talking her into going to Finland. Nicole Bradford is definitely interested in returning and so is Kerrie Swartz, so it looks like the Women’s Team may be the same as last year, but it is not definite at this point. Help support the ISDE, if you don’t understand or have not learned about the event, do it! Mandi is currently 1st in the points for the National Enduros with 120 points. Mandi would again like to thank Jay Hall and all the guys at Hall’s Cycles and Husqvarna Motorcycles for their much appreciated support!
Chase Bishop made the short trip from his home in Tennessee to West Point to defend his Open A Championship in the Series. Chase had a good day in racing, like Mandi, he too was looking to qualify for the ISDE in Finland. Chase has been having some bad luck all year and was hoping to improve his racing. Chase finished with a 40:12 and again was very close to qualifying for the ISDE, depending on how it plays out with other riders and the Trophy Teams. Chase was close to qualifying in Texas and hopefully will get the call that he made the Team. Chase finished 3rd in his class and 21st Overall for the day and is currently in 2nd for the series, with 84 points. Hunter Williams is 1st with 97 points. Chase would like to thank Keith at Obermeyer for all his help and support and is looking forward to giving him a very successful year. Chase is competing in the Open A Class at both the National Enduros and the GNCC Series.
Off Camber rider, Cody Mastin had his first District 14 Series enduro this weekend in Roselawn, Indiana. Cody had a really good day on his Husaberg 450 and finished 2nd overall, only 2 points down from Gas Gas rider, Aaron Wagner. Throughout the entire day Cody and Aaron were really close in scores and it was only in the last section of the day that Aaron was able pull the 2 point gap. Cody is really happy with his results and excited for the rest of the season. His main goal for the 2011 season is the District 14 Enduro Series Championship. So his 2nd overall finish is a good start to the season! Cody would like to thank Championship Powersports for all their help and support and is looking forward to a successful year.
