Upcoming Race – 100’s Hare & Hound
2012 National Hare & Hound Final
This coming Sunday it all comes to a head. The chase for the National Hare and Hound title will be decided between Kurt Caselli and David Pearson. It will also be a mini preview of riders and brands as they get ready to face off in the 2012 SCORE Baja 1000.
Just a week ago at the So Cal MC Hare and Hound, both riders did what they needed to do for the shot at the championship. Kurt Caselli was trailing in points, having missed two rounds due to injury. He took the hole shot and lead nearly the entire race, particularly where it counted, at the finish line.
Points leader Pearson did not need to win, but he put the pressure on Caselli for much of the race. He would ultimately finish a number of minutes back, but securely in second place to keep his points lead.
For the final race, the points picture is tight. Kurt Caselli needs to win and hope for another rider to step up and challenge David Pearson. Leading by 8 points, if David can finish second he will be the champion, regardless of Kurt’s finish. So it should be a good race.
Personally I am hoping for a nice hard course. The last round was very long, but not particularly difficult, just a long day of riding. We will see you out there at Lucerne Valley this coming weekend.
