Memorial Day Weekend at Spring Creek MX Park Race Recap

6/10/2021

Spring Creek’s Super Series rounds 3 & 4 squeaked into the record books on the no-traditional Memorial Day weekend.   Nature did its best to dampen the racing crowds spirits and it was a bit of a battle to get motos completed with the track crew battling conditions multiple times.   Sunday dawned with the track looking good after post practice-day  grooming the night before but a light rain began to douse down the track as racing started and continued on throughout the day.   One set of motos was completed as the conditions were deteriorating until finally it was decided to call off the second set of motos and prepare for Monday’s races.   Monday morning the track was prepped pretty well after a heroic session of grooming.   Slick for the early rounds but getting better as the lines wore in, it shaped up nicely and most of the day’s races were completed but heavy rains moved in late in the day and knocked the second motos in a number of classes out of the day.  Another tough round of weather for the Memorial Day weekend at Spring Creek, but that seems to be traditional by now.   The best laid plans of mice and (John) Martin…oft go astray… or something like that..

 

Cooper Abbett swept through turn one to lead the charge of the 125 Two stroke class onto the circuit for moto one.   A spot of trouble for him led to a drop back in the running order before the completion of lap one while Ayden Price took advantage to grab the lead.   Wyatt McGrath and Ronnie Ores  had secured running positions of second and third as they started into lap two.  McGrath took over out front briefly while Orres was pressuring Price for second but McGrath hit a deep rut coming into the jump face right before the tower and his bike made an abrupt right hand turn and he was flung to the ground and had to scramble to recover in time to retain fourth.  Orres took over shortly from Price and led the way on in for the win.  Price scored second with McGrath putting in some good laps to close in but ending up in third.  Zach Crider managed the difficult conditions to hold fourth over Tanner Taylor.

 

Levi Dertien snared the start to lead going into moto two but McGrath was quick to move to the front with Price and Abbett in tow.  McGrath set a good pace and edged away bit by bit as the race proceeded.  Price and Abbett maintained their places in the order to the flag with Brodie Boumeester closing in to make it a three-rider train flashing across the line about 10 seconds after McGrath took the flag.   Crider was a modest gap back from them for fifth.

 

Jake Loberg ripped down the long Spring Creek start to take charge as the 25 Plus A class got the drop for moto one.    Missouri’s Nick Peterson set up a pursuit, but Loberg had the pace to gap the pack.   Marcus Winch and Collin Lund were running close in a dispute over third but stayed in that order to the end.   When the checkered flag concluded the action, it was Loberg with about a 12 second edge over Peterson for the win.  

 

With moto two erupting from the starting line, pesky, old Jimmy Povolny (running 40 Plus class on the same gate drop) was rude enough to run out front of the young pup Loberg for a couple of laps, but Loberg managed to wrest the lead from him at around the halfway point in the moto after letting Povolny have his fun our front.   There was a good tussle over second place (35 Plus class) as Peterson, Lund and Winch were going at it most of the race.   Peterson was ahead of the other two with Lund running directly behind him and Winch on his tail early on.   Then Winch got by and was pressuring Peterson for a few circuits of the track until finally Lund made a strong pass at the bottom of Collarbone, sweeping past Winch on the outside to hit the Holy Schmit jump and retaking third.  Lund made a strong bid for second and closed on Peterson.   Loberg took the win with another decent lead and Peterson managed to just hold off Lund by feet as they hit the finish line.   Winch was back a bit for fourth and Patrick Miller rounded out the top five.

 

Colin Megaw launched his KTM out front in the first (and to be the only) moto of the 65cc 7-11 class.  Cooper Lanning and Ryder Halquist quickly established themselves as contenders by grabbing second and third as they chased Megaw around the track.  After a few laps it looked like everyone had settled into their roles with no changes in the running order, but Lanning had a problem on the last lap and dropped back a bit before he could recover his pace.   Megaw took a nice win despite the gnarly track conditions with Halquist snaring second.  Lanning’s quick recovery was enough to give him third place over Tyler Zebro wile Brayton Wills corralled fifth place at the flag.
