Perron back with a vengeance at Spring Creek

Joe Perron stormed back into action at the Spring Creek track after a hiatus of a year or so.  Joe had strong rides to top 25 Plus and Open A as he ran 2-1 in both classes.  Where have you been Joe?  Other riders taking advantage of the decent track conditions to top their rivals in multiple divisions included Eli Bumgardner in two of the 50cc classes, Tanner Schlegel in 85 12-15 and Supermini, Caleb
Wagner in 85cc 9-11 and 85cc 9-12, Pat Donaho in the 40 and 45 plus A classes,  Terry Trout in the 45 and 50 B divsions, plus Brandon Johnson topping 25 Plus and Open B.

The crowd was a decent size considering that rain had threatened to douse down attendees but with over 420 entries there was plenty of knobbies churning up the minor amount of mud left on the surface  by a late afternoon shower on Saturday.  Some slickness was present for the earliest moto or two and some minor shots of precip appeared during the first part of the day but the track was nice for most of the day with watering necessary after the sun came out.   Johnny M and the gang had been busy in the weeks leading up to this race, hauling over 100 truckloads of sandy soil in to perk up the track.  There was pretty good sized triple way up on top of the hill to challenge the faster riders and the corners worked up nicely to produce multiple lines.

The Open A class seems to be the premiere battleground for A class supremacy these days and although the turnout was light on this day with a number of riders absent due to the Amateur national there was good action despite.  Brennan Myers stormed off the line to grab the holeshot money provide this weekend by Feine Tune Motorsports.  Nick Jackson and Phil Maus settled in second and third in the early going and were running well but Myers was gapping them.   Perron was maybe a bit rusty for the first few laps but was definitely picking up the pace about mid-moto.   He sliced and diced his way by first Maus, then reeled in Jackson to take over second.   Myers rode a masterful moto though and won with a decent margin  as the checkers flew.  Jackson, Maus and Kyle Koosman then trailed Perron across the line.

Myers snared the holeshot cash again in moto two but Perron was close behind and just a bit back as they cleared the whoop section.   Coming around to the “Chadapult” jump he pulled alongside and motored up the hill and over the triple at the top to take over the lead.  Myers stayed fairly close after that but Perrron inched away to take the win with a safe margin.  Maus put in some strong laps late in the race and closed in on Myers but couldn’t quite catch him.  Jackson and Koosman had a nice battle on their way in to fourth and fifth.

Ian Miller charged to grab the holeshot as the 14-24B class hit the track for their first moto, but Mitchell Prescott was soon out front and led the pack for the remainder of the moto.  Miller maintained a strong pace to  hold second while Dalton Hein was making headway through the pack with strong riding like the outside pass on Trevor Bonnicksen as they were in the corner at the bottom of Mount Martin.  When the flag dropped on the moto, Prescott took a solid win with Miller, Hein, Levi Dertien and Bonnicksen in the top five.  

Hein and Prescott blasted through turn one as the second moto erupted into action.  Prescott surged ahead and while Hein stayed within sight, Prescott pulled out about a 3 second gap for the moto win.  Dertien and Bonnicksen pulled off third and fourth with Reyden Danner taking fifth.   Miller had some issues and was way off pace for a twelvth place score.

Tanner Schlegel ran strong in the 85cc 12-15 class to take the win in both motos.  Jeff Rinkel ran well with a 4-2  score to take second overall while Chase Chyma and Braxton Kragenbring were in the mix too as they pulled off 5-3 and 3-6  for moto scores respectively.   Rounding out the top five was Gavin Olson on his Kawi with a solid 5-6 day.   This class is always good entertainment with lots of riders and good battles down the line.
