Cullin Park

Watch Sunday LIVE HERE. Here’s live timing and results.

For reals though, the are so many entires (5200+) that we are going to be rolling deep into Sunday (today) for racing. There wasn’t much they could do about it, with record numbers racing the SX portion coupled with the shorter days, even starting the racing LAST Sunday wasn’t enough to squeeze in 45 2nd motos. We’re hard pressed to name another race that’s had bikes on the track 7 straight days from sun up to sun down. Let’s take the the 51cc (4-6) limited moto last night as an example. Those little tikes needed a dang headlight out there for the final moto.

Anyways, here are some highlights of the handful of Motocross Main Events that went down on Saturday afternoon.

  • Talon Hawkins and Caden Braswell went at it in 450B Heat 2 early in the morning. They were nearly inseparable the entire race but it would be Hawkins grabbing the 2nd and Braswell rounded out the top 3.  This will be an exciting main once we get back to it today.
  • Luke Kalaitzian is a man amongst boys in the Collegeboy class taking the win in convincing fashion.
Drew Adams taking the Championship in 85cc (9-11) Limited

85cc (9-11) Limited would see Drew Adams make his way to front in a hurry after a hell of a pass off the start dropping into the gatorpit leaving Seth Dennis and Klark Robbins to sort out the rest of the podium. Robbins would grab the 2 and Dennis wrapped up the podium. 

Mini-E did not disappoint! Kade Nightingale would get a top 10 start and got to work, but would crash hard in one of the bowl turns on the backside of the track allowing. In the meantime, Gavin McCoy, Levi Leddy, and Jame Gleason set sail. Leddy passed his way into the 2nd place spot setting the fastest lap on the track in traffic. This class will forever be one of my favorites to watch… in silence of course.

When (Mike) “Brownie” shows up to race, we usually know what’s going to happen. It’s usually either a schooling… or a really big schooling. He’s an animal. So far, he’s taken the top honors in Vet 35+ over Brad Smith and Michael Carter.

250C Limited would see Jacob Henry take off and check out for the win, with Dominic Butscher and Blake Grindstaff also on the box. These kids were hauling some serious ass. Don’t sleep on the C class, they are the core of our sport and lay it all out there! 

Jordan Jarvis, Tayler Allred and Jazzmyn Canfield were also hauling some serious ass in the Women’s 12+ class. Jarvis grabbed the holeshot and never really looked back leaving Allred and Canfield to battle it out. They would finish in that order for the overall.

#91 of the Nate Thrasher Taking the W in 250 Prosport

250 Prosport was dominated by Nate Thrasher. He had a subpar showing in the SX portion, but goodness is he hauling outdoors. He checked out on lap one and just kept charging. Levi Kitchen would finish 2nd and Matt LeBlanc would round out the podium. 

Marsalisi vs. Clough
Gage Linville, Your 250B Limited Champion

Gage Linville continues his dominance over the 250B limited class with another title under his belt. Luca Marsalisi would finish 2nd and Brandon *I will also scrub the sh*t out of everything* Ray threw down one of the nastiest scrub passes making the pass for 3rd on the second step-up on the uphill section. Honorable mention is Jayden Clough coming off of superminis and fitting right into the B classes as he grabbed a top 5 right behind Ayden Shive

Jaydin Smart

The last moto of the day was the 51cc (4-6) Limited. This was a little bit of a head scratcher due to the total lack of daylight when these guys took off, but none of the parents complained so they sent ’em! Jaydin Smart took off early and had a big ol’ lead until disaster struck. He got tangled up with a lapper and went down causing the bikes to also get stuck together. It took quite a while for them to get going again which allowed Anderson Waldele and Gavin Welzien to sneak by for 1st and 2nd as Smart rebounded and still landed on the podium. 

Tomorrow is going to be an epic day completely full of mains starting off with the Class of the week, Supermini 1. Gahhhh I can’t wait to see how it plays out with a new riveraly brewing between Casey “Got my swagger back” Cochran, Haiden Deegan, and Krystian Janik, but look for Jordan Miller and Gavin Betts to make it known they are not just going to roll over either. Pissed off teenagers on superminis never disappoint! 

Final day! Let’s do this.

Tiger Wood took the Championship honors in 85cc (12-13) Limited

We met Jeff sleeping in a tent down the street from Loretta Lynn's... with his computer. At that point, we knew he would fit in with us. Then, he then drank all the white claw flavors none of us liked, and that's when we knew it was meant to be. Jeff officially became part of the crew.
We're terrible at asking questions, so we're not exactly sure what Jeff does for a living, but he loves petting his cats and dog, growing his beard, and living in a cornfield in Michigan. Jeff also likes to wear cycling glasses while driving his car and using his cameras. We like Jeff.
