The overnight rain greeted the 450+ racers to slimy conditions. It would turn out to be a very slick and sloppy course. These conditions would take patience to navigate.
The Pro wave started with the two favorites last off the line. “I looked over when my bike didnt start, saw him (Chris Douglas) kicking still” explained Chris Bach. The pair cruised to the first turn and began working on getting thru the traffic. About halfway thru lap one Bach on his Carolina KTM, RidePG, WP USA, Fly, 100%, Sidi, FMF, clockwork, DP brakes, USWE, Maxxis, Dirt Tricks, PODmx, Nytro, KR4 performance backed KTM with Douglas hot on his tail. The duo ended the first lap in the lead with Zach Love joining them.
Lap two, the three took turns at the front with Bach finally taking control. Douglas on his Husqvarna supported by Halls Cycles, FAR, Husqvarna, Fly Racing, GDR, PG, Dirt Tricks, Maxxis, Sidi, Motorcycle Superstore, Bell Helmets, EKS, Pro Circuit, USWE, Super B, and DQ Tuned got tangled in some barbed wire and dropped about 5 minutes getting free. Douglas had some work to do to get caught back up to the front after dropping 4 spots.
Bach put in some mistake free laps to open up a gap back to the now charging Douglas who worked back up to second five minutes down. Austin Lee rode a consistent race in third a minute and a half behind Douglas.
The Youth were the first on the course for the day with a good size group of forty seven. Ronnie Beach squeaked out the win by 13 seconds over Tyler Darmon with Riley Walch another two and a half minutes back.
The Peewee class got out before the rain on Saturday put down a lot of laps in their 30 minute race. Zarek Corbett put in sixteen laps and finished just under a minute before Gavin Carman with Nathan McCabe another forty seconds back.
