Spring Creek Super Series marches on and hit the halfway point for the season
as round six results were scribed into the record books. Despite some precip
the day before the track was in fair shape for the day’s event thanks to
John and the crew of happy minions and there were about 400 entries in total to
take advantage. Quite
impressive was the list of riders winning two classes: Don Bonnicksen,
Joseph Dretzka, Levi Geis, Braxton Johnson, Milo Juliar, Wyat McGrath, Steve
Moyle, Ronnie Orres, Jeffrey Rinkel, William VonWald,
Wayne Welzien and Carson Wittman. Whew! Major moto mojo!
Rauner came out flying in the first 14-24 C moto and
hammered down right off to start edging away from his competition. Jayden Wolf settled into second
with Alex Rasmussen just behind in third and the then the top trio was set . Wolf
seemed to find his pace later in the moto and reeled in Rauner
bit by bit only to end up about a second or so behind Rauner
as they crossed the finish line.
Rasmussen lost ground the last couple of laps but maintained third over
Gavin Stoltenberg while Logan Skallet rounded out the
roosted to the front of the pack in moto two and perhaps encouraged by his
strong finish in the first race he held strong to lead all the way to the
held him in sight but just could not close in to challenge for the lead so second
place was it for him this time out.
Rasmussen was a solid third place over Skallet
with Cody Scott in tow for fifth.
Dyekman made the trip from Montana worthwhile as she
pulled the holeshot to lead in the first moto of the Women’s class but Bryanne Wolf kept her in
sight for a couple laps then pulled ahead to go in for the win. Ashley Rasmussen snared third with Liz
Turney and Jersey Graumann crossing the line behind
shot out front to lead early in the second moto but
Wolf managed to move up after early troubles and caught her on the last lap and
in the last turn at the bottom of Collarbone she put on a great pass to take
the win. Rasmussen reprised
her earlier third-place finish with Graumann and
Turney running in for 4-5 finishes this time out.
Boaz ripped a trench down the muddy starting straight to lead in moto one of
the Open A class. Normally such a
start would lead to a massive lead for Boaz by the end of the race but Tyler Lowe latched onto his draft and stayed close
for a couple of laps then dropped off just a bit in pace as the moto
proceeded. Boaz took the
checkers with a decent gap over Lowe and then there was quite a distance back
to third as the two front runners had a blazing pace going for the
duration. Nick Fox secured third
over Zach Harris and Tanner Taylor.
led through turn one as the second moto was unleashed by master gate engineer
Tom Kidd. Unfortunately for Boaz he
sampled dirt shortly into the moto and got up as the rest of the riders roosted
away. Lowe and Fox set off in
first and second while Boaz remounted and took off in pursuit. Lowe was running hot out front and
left Fox alone in second but by the halfway point Boaz managed to catch and
displace Fox for the runner-up spot.
But Lowe was long gone and Boaz just
didn’t have the drive to make up the gap so Lowe gathered in the moto win
and the overall for the day. Fox
stayed strong for third after Boaz with Taylor and Tony Deutsch snapping up the
the Super Series moves on into the critical mid-year juncture with the
dual-race event surrounding the Spring Creek Pro National. Round 7 running on Friday with Round
8 (Pro Track Challenge) scheduled for Sunday. Be there because you know darn
well you can better those pro rider lap times, by gosh! Or at least try.
