Boaz, Schlegel run strong at Millville Amateur Day

Spring Creek Park wrapped up the National Pro weekend with a great day of amateur racing with Tanner Schlegel and Josh Boaz cleaning up in four of the classes.  Schlegel snicked off four moto wins in the 85cc 9-12 class and Supermini while Boaz won all motos in the 250 A and Open A classes.  Boaz apparently didn’t get quite enough track time on Saturday as he made his pro debut, successfully qualifying for and racing to 30-34 finishes to start his pro career.   These two riders along with the rest accounted for over 650 entries for the day and got to enjoy a nice rain-free weekend at the track, unusual this season.   The track was routed to use the lower section of Mount Martin instead of running straight across hill from the uphill triple section as has been the usual practice this year. 

 

Sampling a few of the classes for the actions contained therein….

Tanner Schlegel, as previously mentioned, was having a great weekend and busted out two wins in the Supermini class.  Brodie Boumeester had some competition from Jeffrey Rinkel and Jaxon Nagel in the early going but took second both times out and was doing a good job to hang with Schlegel in moto two.   Rinkle and Nagel were very consistent to nail down third and fourth with Landon Quandahl snaring fifth.

 

Josh Boaz looked smooth and fast as he controlled both motos of the Open A class.  He had a strong win in moto one over Wisconsin’s Justin Wolf and Californiam Dominc Desimone while Joe Dretzka and Jamison Duclos ran 4-5.   Moto 2 featured an unusually poor start for Boaz as Dylan Smith took off and led the first lap with Nick Schnagl running second.  Boaz was drilling through traffic and by mid-moto was on now-lead Schnagl’s tail and soon to swoop by into the lead.  Boaz pulled ahead to win with a bit of a gap over Schnagl and Disimone recovered from a poor start to take third over Smith and Wolf.

 

Easton Block ripped off a holeshot to lead the Schoolboy 2 class through turn one but somewhere on lap 1 he ran into serious trouble and dropped from contention.  Yankton, South Dakota’s Evan Payer snagged the lead and was looking strong out front as lap one was completed.  Brandon Espe-Tiegs slotted into second with Ethan McMahon and <aspm Grecula giving chase.  Payer had a slight edge on Espe-Tiegs and slowly pulled away as the moto unwound, finally taking the checkered with about a 7 second lead.   Grecula grabbed third after McMahon slipped back to sixth mid moto and Dylan Payer took fourth over Josh Bowman.

 

Espe-Tiegs launched into the lead as moto two was unleashed upon the world with Evan Payer getting buried in the pack.  Dylan Duclos held second by the end of lap one but Payer was third and closing.  Payer slipped into second on lap two and went after the lead, looking like he had the pace to catch the leader and coming up on Espe-Tiegs he made the pass for the lead at the top of Collarbone and led down the hill and over the finish line to sweep both motos.  Duclos held onto third after his disastrous first moto with McMahon and Grecula trailing him in.

 

Andrew Clark jumped off the line to lead the Open C class around turn one in fine fashion but Garret Becker soon demoted him as he stole the lead early on.  Becker was looking pretty strong and maintained his grip on the lead until the checkered brought the moto to an end.  Rodrigo Morales had a good ride and was on pace to take a strong second-place finish over Clark and Riley Renner while Bryce Rauner scooped up fifth.  

 

Moto 2 holeshot was close between Clark and Kyle Sands but the latter snapped up the lead with Morales slotting into second ahead of Clark.   That settled the order for the remainder of the moto and they all crossed the finish line before Becker came by after a trip through the pack after early troubles.  Morales 2-2 finishes gave him the overall with Becker’s 1-4 not quite enough but ahead of Clark for second on the podium.

 

The season wraps up on October 9 so be sure to get some Millville dirt under your knobbies for one last outing in this crazy year.
