After being dark for several years a popular motocross park reopens with a special race.
MILFORD, CALIF. (June 19) – MRANN (Motorcycle Racing Association of Northern Nevada) made its return to the newly reopened Honey Lake MX Park this weekend. It was the annual Corey Herring Memorial “Go Big or Go Home!” race. The event honors the young rider lost eight years ago and helps fund scholarships created in his name. It also marks the end of MRANN’s spring racing season.
Due to the length of the course each class, Expert, Amateur and Novice got a separate timed event on Sunday.
“I really got a bad start so after that I just tried passing as many people as right away. The dust and the silt was super bad but I stayed up, never crashed and made it happen Ty Tremaine said after winning the Expert race. “I got some clear air for a while then we ran into some lappers and it got pretty bad. The hill was really fun, there were some pockets but overall it was a really good race.”
Then he thanked his father Bill Tremaine for taking the family out there, the team, FMF, RPM, KTM Racing Team, Maxxis, Natures Bakery, and his cousin Tanner, who only raced that day but is his mechanic.
The start was when a banner was dropped this sent the 55 riders up a wide hill that narrows then makes a sharp right turn. Joeb Fiascoraro led the charge up the hill and into a sharp right.
Back in the pack Tremaine was on a tear and it took a bit less than two laps to catch and pass leader Fisacoraro. After that everyone was eating the leader’s dust.
Honey Lake can be configured in several ways. This time the riders raced through a rocky wash then go over and back a ridge that lead them to the hill.
This time they didn’t use the full length of the hill as the course wound around the area. And the expert race was two hours before the checkered flag waved.
In the end Tremaine posted a time of 2:04:34.973, while runner up Fiascoraro posted a time of 2:09:25.515. They were the only two riders that passed the finish line just before the checkered came out so it took third place Nathan Gibson only 2:01:07:321 to complete the race.
Next up was the Amateur class and they ran a 90-minute timed race.
When the banner dropped and sent the riders off it was 40+ rider Tom Chattin that led them up the hill. Soon however young Dallas Serpa swept past him and roared away ito the lead.
Lap after lap Serpa kept extending and would end up by putting almost a lap on the entire field. He also passed the finish line just before the checkered flag waved so his elapsed time was 1:35:23:151.
Runner up Jake Himphill also had to do an extra lap and his elapes time was 1:38:47.953 while third place Tyler Toline was 1:30.27.339.
After winning the race Serpa said, “It was fun, it was a bit slick out but it was a good track. Once I got into the lappers the dust got pretty bad but just had to try and stay out of their dust and get around them as quick as I could.”
Serpa explained both he and his brother are off to the Mammoth Motocross this weekend. He’s racing 250 C and Schoolboy 2 while Serpa thought his brother Austin will at least race 250 B.
Then he thanked his father Keith Serpa, Carson Motorsports, X-Brand goggles, Bell Helmets and everyone that has been supporting him so he can keep riding at the level he’s riding at.
One problem the new owners are facing is that apparently they don’t have a pump as the previous owner might have sold off the water rights. So the truck has to go to a nearby farm to fill up.
And the tanks that used to be on the hill aren’t there any more as they’ve broken down.
All this and reopening the track is a challenging experience.
Finally it was time for the 46 Novice riders to line up for their hour and 15 minute race. On the launch Ian Prince took off with the pack hot pursuit.
Once he established the lead Prince was in command although Kody Gray was somewhat close to him for a couple of laps.
At the end the first four riders were within less than five minutes from each other. But this time dust actually helped the winner.
He explained that a due from a couple of lappers slowed him down on the final circuit. The result was arriving at the finish just as the checkered flag was displayed so his time was 1:15:10:931.
Coming home second was Kody Gray with a time of 1:16:22.715 followed by Alex Carpineta at 1:17:23.785 and Prince’s cousin Colton Scudder, who had a time of 1:18:45.846.
At the end Prince was a bit overcome by all the dust and heat. And yes it was a warm day so it took him a couple of minutes to recover .
“My dad’s my number one fan. Got the hole shot, wanted to stay up front and kick up as much dust as I could,” he said. “I got two clean laps in before I started seeing any dust I think that’s really what got me ahead. Wasn’t too many lappers but getting behind them was kind of rough.”
He too said the rock wash was his favorite part of the track. It was also special that Prince was celebrating the win with his dad on Father’s Day.
Asked about the time of arriving to the checkered flag, Prince said, “I was hoping it was on the last lap. I’m happy I just barley got in there.”
Then he thanked his parents, his dirt bike as, “it did all the work,” his KTM 300 and Jesus Christ.
Then Prince joined his cousin Scudder, who finished fourth, for more celebration.
• Saturday also had a full program for the other classes. Draven Cleveland was the Pee Wee winner as he riders in the 65cc Novice classs while third place Jacob Engelke was the first 50cc rider to finish.
In the Mini Bike race Casey Cormichael was the winner on a 100cc bike while 15th place Austin Hough was the first 65cc rider to reach the checkered flag.
The Saturday Women and Bombers had a combined race and Drew Chattin won the overall on his Bomber. Heather Pickering was the women’s winner and she was fifth overall.
Team races ended the day and there were 108 riders in 54 teams during a 90 minute event. Team Berenditt Hones won with a time of 1:31:01.633 a bit more than a minute ahead of runner up Team Stone Serpa.
During the two days eight riders, four on Saturday and four on Sunday, needed the attention of the medics. However only one had to be transported for further checks.
