FERNLEY (NOV. 12.) – BATTL BORN MX fall series ended today with great weather and some hard racing. Hosting the event was the Reno Chapter of the Old Timers and there were 206 riders on hand that signed up for 309 racing slots.
And on this day there were two pro races with the 30 Plus being the first.
“Yea it was really close, I’m tired, worn out, had a long workweek,” Jordan Burroughs said after winning. “Started to push but just wanted to take it easy as I’ve got one more moto to go and I’m worn out.”
Then he thanked is dad as well as wife, friends and family.
When his second moto began Burroughs was in the lead with James Swain in hot pursuit. Soon second place was taken over by Manha, who kept the pressure on for the remainder of the moto.
After pulling a gap over second in the last lap Manha began to reel the leader in and they crossed the finish line almost side-by-side.
Since it both motos were a mixed class event there were other winners as well. Swain was the 30+ Intermediate winner while the 38+ victor was Dana Belton. In 45+ Expert Tony P. Fagundes won while the only 38+ Master was Kevin Decarli.
The other pro race was in the 250/450 division. When that second moto began Aaron Siminoe was on point but not far behind was desert racer Austin Serpa.
All during the race Siminoe was able to hold a gap a bit over 1 second on his determined rival. They ripped around the course leaving everyone in their dust and the gap between them stayed constant until the final lap when it increased slightly.
While Siminoe was the pro winner Serpa’s second place earned him the 250/450 Intermediate victory while further back, Tim P. Stone topped the 25+ Open class.
After the race Siminoe said, “It was close for a while and I was making a ton of mistakes out there, the bike’s not dialed so going back to the drawing board Monday. Hands are a little numb right now, can’t really feel them definitely got to practice more and just get the bike dialed.”
Then he thanked his sponsors, Broken Clothing, Fly Racing, X-Brand Goggles, Number Tech Graphics, his grandfather, father, mother and girl friend.
During the day a couple of the classes were split and another close race was the second 250 Intermediate moto. During that moto Julian Domingo was pressed by Alec Green as they turned the contest into their own private battle.
In the end Domingo scored the victory with Green close behind in second while Kyle Brink wasn’t too far behind and ready to pounce if either leader made a major mistake.
After after taking the checkered flag Domingo said, “On the last lap I made a mistake in one of these corners and he was right there but I made no mistakes on the last lap so it was good. I want to thank my dad, Testa Motorsports, they help me out with everything. I like rough tracks, it’s definitely my type of track right now.”
Later he added sponsors Pro Taper, Blue Crew, Yamaha, Oakley Goggles, Bell Helmets and everybody that has helped him.
This time there were only seven women and unlike past events their motos they raced with the older riders in the 45+ Junior, 52+ Junior and 52+ Intermediate classes.
The older folks were launched first then after a brief time the women. During the race women’s winner Potratz caught and passed several of the men.
Potratz won the Women’s A class followed by Ashtyn Shepard and Ashleigh Trapanese. The Women’s B group was won by Jasmyne Herrera followed by Hayden Losey, Amanda Ross and Denise Schwartz.
At the top of the age ladder the winners were Mark Laye, the only 52+ Intermediate rider and Chris Ober, who won the 52+ Junior class. Dropping down to the 45+ group Ty Reilly was the Junior winner while Tony Fagundes won the Expert class.
At the bottom of the age ladder are the Pee Wee riders, youngsters just earning their racing spurs. And since they are so little they race on a shorter track where a by pass is used to make it a bit better for them.
The Beginner winner was Branden Kuhn while Pierson Potratz won the Junior division. Joseph Mitchell was the Intermediate winner and Jesse Miller won the Open race.
The 65cc Beginners run with the Pee Wees as those riders are learning how to shift and also use the short track. Doug Pena was the winner there while Rogen Hill topped the 65 Junior class, which races on the big track.
One of the younger riders scored the most victories of the weekend and that was K.C. Clinton. This youngster won the 65cc Intermediate and Open races when went on to earn victories in 85cc Junior and Open races.
The 85cc Beginner winner was Jett Lloyd an Nakana Domingo won the Supermini division.
Julian Domingo won two races topping the 125/250 and Schoolboy motos.
After almost disappearing from our area the sport of Motocross is appears healthy once again. Several classes had many riders on the gates like 85cc Beginner that had 21 riders start those motos.
Another sign of things to come was the 65cc Beginner class as there were 20 of those youngsters in the gate for their motos. There were so many 125/250 Beginner riders that class was broken into two divisions to get all 33 riders into the gate slots.
With the hard racing some riders did go down but most didn’t need the medics to check on them although a few did. Fortunately no one earned an ambulance rider to the Hospital.
Now motocross racing is over for the year and won’t resume until next spring. Until then those that won trophies and bragging rights will enjoy that until the Sandbox calls them back to Fernley in the new year for the 2018 sprint series.
