FERNLEY (Oct. 1) – Round two of the BBMX fall series was held at the Sandbox, which is the Fernley/Wadsworth Lion’s Club Motocross Track. Reno chapter of the Over The Hill Gang was the host and Mother Nature gave the riders great weather for racing.
Although three pros were on hand to contest the 250/450 motos it came down to a two-rider duel between Dylan Galliett and Tony Evans.
When their first moto began and after a short side-by-side duel through the first turn Galliett took the point with Evans in hot pursuit. Then Evans took the lead until the final laps when Galliett took it back and won the race.
When the gate dropped starting the second moto Jesse Gore was briefly in the lead followed by Galliett and Scott Stillmock while Evans, who had a bad start, was fifth. Soon Galliett took over the point and after Evans grabbed second the chase was on.
In the end it was a sweep for Galliett while Evans wound up with a pair of seconds.
“I got two good starts and just pulled away from there,” Galliett said after his second victory. “He (Evans) got me a couple of times in the first moto and it took a little bit to get around him.”
Then he thanked Tech One Designs, Menace Motorsports, Answer and his parents for their support.
It wasn’t all bad for Evans has he ran away with both 30 Plus Pro victories, although the wasn’t in the lead for part of the second moto and Jordan Burroughs wound up second in both of their races.
Asked about the races Evans said, “I just got a bad start in the second race and just rode around him and rode my line. The track is in good shape, I really like it when it’s rougher.”
Evans then gave thanks to his family, Next Generation Dry Wall, RMS, Tech One Designs and everyone that helps him.
Another close race was in 250/450 Junior as the top two swapped places in the first and second moto.
On the first go around Blayne Herrera won the moto with Andy Fahey taking second. After a race long chase they swapped places as Fahey won their second moto and earned the day’s victory.
The 250/450 Intermediate motos also had place swapping as two riders from Sparks switched their finishing order. Victory in the second moto gave Austin W. Johnson the top spot while first moto winner Cole Carmichael wound up second overall.
Several of the races combine two or more classes. A good example was the 18+ Open won by Dylan Galliett, that was combined with Schoolboy, won by DylanThorwaldson, and 25+ Open class.
Up front the duel for overall was between 25+ riders Jordan Burroughs and Tim Stone. In the end Burroughs won the day but it wasn’t by much as Stone ended up a solid second.
“Yes I knew he was close, my friend Tim Stone was coming on me,” Burroughs said. “But I held him and I got it so it gives me a sweep on the 25+. I am 36, I’m not 25, I’m plus.”
Then he thanked his wife, friends and those that got him there. And he gave special thanks to his dad, David Shelton, who is no long with us.
Years ago the Sandbox could have been called the House of Stillmock as brothers Butch and Scott ruled the roost. Well this week both showed why.
During both Club motos each brother won one of them. Butch won the first while Scott the second but Kevin Hargett used his two runner up finishes to claim the big prize for the day’s overall.
In the Women’s A class it was all Shami Potratz as she ran away with both of her motos. Ashtyn Shepard was second in the A class while the B class winner was Jasmyne Herrera, who swept both of her races.
The Women race with the Supermini riders and Chase Cannizzaro swept both of his motos.
At the top of the age ladder, in the 52+ Classes, Rod Rohrbacher won in Intermediate while Chris Ober was the Junior winner.
Going to the bottom of the age ladder where the youngest riders compete there was some great riding and racing. These kids are earning their racing spurs and doing a good job of it.
Probably the closest race came in the Pee Wee Junior second moto where Richard Duncan, after finishing second in the first race took the lead with Pierson S. Potratz giving chase. Their duel lasted until the final laps when Potratz took the lead giving him a sweep.
In the Beginner class Branden Kuhn won while Richard Duncan ran away to sweep both of his motos.
65cc is where young riders learn to shift as they don’t have to when riding a 50cc Pee Wee bike. And it’s the first time these youngsters ride the full course like their older brethren.
Sunday’s winners were Nicholas McGee in Beginners, Rogen Hill in Juniors, K.C. Clinton was the Intermediate winner while Connor Gaarenstrom won the Open class.
Motocross looks healthy for this area as some of the gates had over 20 riders starting motos. And even the Pee Wee classes had a bunch of riders.
OTHG president Layne Kolbet said that almost 200 riders showed up for Saturday’s practice. Not counting those that signed up but weren’t able to start their races there were 302 entries for Sunday and took 19 motos to get all the classes in.
Next up for the BBMX fall series will be anther practice and race at Fernley on the weekend of October 14/15.
REPORTER’S NOTE: There is a photo gallery at the end of the results.
There was a photographer selling prints at the race and I hope you racers gave him your support. Sorry don’t have his link to send you to but I think he’ll be at the next race as well.
