Garret Becker took
advantage of day two of the Spring Creek Labor Day double header to go for the
triple win, 14-24C,
250 C and Open C. Not a bad way to wrap
up the weekend! The track was in pretty
good shape to start the day but some light rain managed to mess it up for later
motos and even necessitated rerouting to avoid Collarbone. But all motos were completed and a good time
was had by all! Except for moto-moms
cleaning up afterward. But they enjoy
Wyatt McGrath pulled a holshot as the Schoolboy 1 class hit the track but Luke Geis
displaced him out front within a short while.
McGrath kept it close for a lap but Geis started to pull away a bit as
the race proceeded to wind down. At the
flag it was Geis about 6 seconds up on McGrath who was safely ahead of Beau
Engstrom. Tyler Otterdahl
and James Orres snapped up the 4-5 spots.
Moto 2 was all Geis from
start to finish. McGrath made a valiant
attempt to stay with him and was closer this time out, but Geis maintained his
lead to win with a few seconds over McGrath.
Engstrom and Otterdahl reprised their first
moto finishes as they went 3-4 while Jeff Rinkel moved up one position to take
fifth over Orres.
Brian McCarthy led for
some time in the 35+B class with Steven Hanks and Wade Hasse
seeming to be interested in taking charge out front. Hanks finally pulled the trigger and took
over out front on the last lap with McCarthy hanging in there for second over Hasse. Scott Ophoven took fourth over Travis Holst.
McCarthy started strong
in moto two but Hanks was soon to take charge and swept by. Hasse put in his
own bid for supremacy and took second away from McCarthy shortly
thereafter. McCarthy settled in for third with Ophoven once again running fourth.
