Round 1 Race Report
Racing got underway at Orange County Fair Motocross on April 15th, 2018 for Round 1 of the MSC Championship Motocross Series presented by Honda.
The temperature all day never got above 37F Degrees, but that didn’t stop MSC’s hard core riders from braving the brisk air and banging bars forthe top spot on the podium.
Some top news from this event, MSC’s rider rep Walt Decker earned the top spot in the Plus 40C class for the first time ever. Congratulations Walt! To celebrate his win, his son Jack also won his class abord the #44 Kawasaki Sponsored by Big Boyz Toys Kawasaki.
Amateur riders Jack Brining #827 battled hard with newly turned Amatuer rider Robert Everhart #270 for the top spot in 250B. Aaron Lampi had a fight on his hands early in both Open A motos with Alex Lewis #31. At one point, Alex made a move passing Lampi briefly over the finishline on lap one, but Lampi #813 wicked up the throttle and pulled away for the remainder of both motos.
Plus 50 riders and Ace MX Club Officers Mike Hoensch #58, Rob Angot #665, and Long Time MSC Rider Tom Hall #51 got tangled up resulting in a 30 minute delay. All riders were able to get off the track with Hoensch sustaining a few injuries. In good spirits Hoensch is on the mend and will return to racing as soon as he can. For now, he will help his son Benny #51 stay fast in PeeWee 7-8 and PeeWee Open. We wish Mike and all our riders who crashed this weekend a speedy recovery.
