  • MRANN – BLUE WING FLAT VIDEO

    MRANN - Keith Alosi and Wayne Weidemier

    Here is the MRANN video from Blue Wing Flat. Please excuse the error I made in the video title, my fault entirely. Once again I’m indebted to the efforts of Brittany Hutchings as she took care of the video duties. Many thanks to her and hopefully she can continue to help me. Can’t do both the video and stills at the same time. It was great weather and good fields so the promise of a great season is being realized. Good hard racing with only one rider needing much medical attention. Not to mention getting a helicopter ride to Reno.

    Reno Motorsports

    We here at www.nvracingnews.com wish welcome our first advertiser to this site.

  • Austin Serpa – MRANN 2015 CHAMPION

    MRANN - Austin Serpa, 2015 Overall Champion.

    Austin Serpa had a championship year this season as he raced his KTM in area desert races. Winning races is the goal of any racer and while most never accomplish this they have fun trying. However some do win titles and earning an overall championship in their rookie year is an even greater accomplishment. And that’s exactly what one 16-year-old high school racer did this past season.
