Heat races have wrapped up here at 2021 Thor Mini O’s at Gatorback, which leaves around 69 LCQ’s to roll though leaving us just enough time to grill up some wieners and catch you up to speed!
Supermini Produces Super Racing
As mentioned previously, Supermini is one hell of a class to watch and this year is no different. We are searching for the next stand out in the class and the real slim shady has stood up. Tiger Wood and Drew Adams would secure heat race wins but it wasn’t so easy as Jude Smerlick gave Adams everything he could handle in Division 2. Carter Malcolm, Tyler Mollet and Kristin Janik will be there to capitalize on any misstep by the hitters. Janik is looking to bounce back after a tough heat race, where he went down on the first lap.
Romano Strikes Back
Nick Romano grabbed the win in 450 Pro Sport as he continues to establish his place in the class. Talon Hawkins and Chance Hymas would get mid-pack starts and were a non-factor at the front as Romano, Gavin Towers and Kimble Jett checked out up front. Matt Leblanc would come through for a fourth.
450 B is V Fast
All of the hitters lined up for 450 B and holy smokes were they going very very fast. Like sub 1 min lap times fast. Evan Ferry would grab the win, but Nate Mason, Daxton Bennick, Ben Garib, Haiden Deegan and company were all running the same 1 minute lap times. There wasn’t a lot of moving around as everyone found their grove and stayed put.
125cc Need I Say More?
Schoolboy 1 and 125cc B/C went off this morning as well giving us our first look at Casey Cochran aboard his new Husky 125. He would go to battle with Logan Best in their division giving us a look at what the main could look like. Mix in Ivan Aldama, Luke Fauser, Noah Stevens, Dilon Blecha, Collin Allen, Jordan Renfro, Landin Pepperd and Adler Caudle andwe will be in for one hell of a show.
There is always talk of the biggest race ever, blah blah blah, but with 30ish LCQ’s running today I’d say that it is an accurate statement here this week in Florida. 114 kids just in 51 (4-8) Limited, 103 in 85 (9-11) Limited and 106 in 250 C. The vibes are all time through the pits but when it comes to the racing these kids are as locked in as every as all eyes are on them for the next few days and everyone looks to make their mark before we roll into Supercross Futures in 6-9 weeks.
Here are some epic from photos from @BlakeKeith_ today during the second day of Supercross racing.
