Althoff Takes Triple Wins at Spring Creek at 2019 Finale

Millville, MN  October 13

Jackson Althoff roosted away to three wins on the Spring Creek Mini track to top off the 2019 race season at Spring Creek Park and jump to the lead in points for those classes as this race counts as next year’s first of the 2020 Super Series.    Althoff rode to six moto wins in Hornets 7-11, 50cc Premix 4-6 and 50cc Open 4-8 on this cold, blustery day showing that the cool temps were not affecting his skills.   About 260 other riders showed they would not be deterred by the nearly-winter temps as they charged around the challenging terrain in slippery conditions for the early motos, but conditions improved throughout the day and the snows of Saturday practice became just a hazy memory. 

 

Checking in on some of the classes on the big track, let’s see what transpired in the 60+ boys.   Wayne Welzien ripped up the start straight to take control in turn one as they initiated battle in moto one.  Welzien has been strong all year and settled into the lead but Jack Parenteau was charging too and kept close for the first couple of laps.   Welzien had a good pace though and Parenteau dropped back bit by bit in the later couple laps.   Lynn Meyer and Jerry Schulze were duking it out over third for most of the race and Schulze got the upper hand on the last lap to follow Welzien and Parenteau across the line for third.   Jerry Dillon rounded out the top five.

 

Moto 2 featured Welzien once again leading the way for the rest of the field as they hit turn one.  Parenteau latched onto second again while Meyer and Schulze battled over third.   Welzien built a lead over Parenteau as the laps rolled by and Schulze displaced Meyer in third about halfway through the race.   The checkered flag brought the race to a close with Welzien holding a safe lead for the win.  Parenteau was clear of the continued battle behind him as Schulze brought his bike across for third despite Meyer’s pressure.  Harold Gooch was next across the line to tie up fifth overall with a 6-5 score.

 

Milo Maas charged out to the early lead in the first 85cc 9-12 moto.   He was on the gas and started to build a nice lead while an intense battle developed over second place with Braxton Williamson, Caleb Wagner and Landon Quandahl as participants.  Maas took the win with a big gap over his competitors.  Williamson snagged second over Quandahl and Wagner despite all their efforts and Chad Schmitt pulled across the line for fifth.

 

Maas surged out ahead in moto two for a repeat win.  Williamson and Wagner ran in second and third for the entirety of the race and were spaced apart a bit back from Maas at the flag.  Carson Lanning came out on top of the battle he had with Quandahl for most of the moto as his fourth-place finish topped the eighth place he had in moto one.  But Quandahl’s more consistent 3-5 score was good for 4th overall.

 

Gavin Tilford motored out to lead the Schoolboy 1 class as the gate was dropped by Tom Kidd for moto one.  Tilford looked strong out front as he set a rapid pace.  Carson Johanningmeier held second at the conclusion of lap one but had Wyatt McGrath on his tail.   McGrath was soon by to take over second place with Brodie Boumeester latching onto third.  McGrath seemed to be catching up a bit on Tilford but had a bobble on the last lap, losing enough time so that Boumeester caught up to him just as he was recovering from his dirt sampling.    Tilford took the win confortably while McGrath managed to hold off Boumeester’s charge.  Johanningmeier grabbed fourth over Evan Hawkins.

 

The battle was on in moto two with Tilford leading the way and McGrath pressuring him for the duration.  It all came down to the last turn and McGrath got a good run down the last hill and went to the outside in a high-intensity move to take the win by half a bike length over Tilford.   Hawkins improved for third this second time out with Boumeester and Johanningmeier rounding out the top five.  Good moto!
