June 10th Recap
Indiana and the surrounding states haves seen a resurgence of flat track racing over the years. There were three tracks scheduled up against our June 10th event. Some paid a higher payout than Mid-America, but we were thrilled when we had 94 riders sign up. Brad Baker set a new six lap heat record with a time of 1:22, versus the previous record set by Barry Benkert at 1:28. Brad Baker continued his winning ways, and put on a clinic in the 25 lap Main Event in the Open Class on his Rotax, lapping up to 8th place in the 16 rider field. Brandan Bergen finished second after making his return to racing afer a two and a half year hiatus. Local Rider Shane O'banion rounded out the podium in third place. Perhaps the most impressive ride of the night, was Kevin Stollings who went down on lap three, bringing out the red flag. Kevin Stollings had to restart from the fourth row, and finished in 5th place.
The 450 class was won by Brandan Bergen, followed by Kevin Stollings, and Shane O'Banion.
The youth riders also put on a great show. Lakoda Leedy was the big winner taking wins in 50cc Chain, 65cc, and a second in the 85cc class

Our next event is July 15th. Please note that we are not doing the fair race this year.
Super Senior 60+ Class Added
It was suggested that due to the growing number of riders and the age range of the Sr. 50+ class, that we offer a 60+ class. We ran this class at the first two events of 2017 and results have been positive. We are going to continue to offer both the 50+ and 60+ classes, with the restriction that a rider can only ride 50+ or 60+, not both. Riders in 60+ are eligible for 30+ and vintage classes.

What is Gonzocross?
We are not completely sure yet but we have one goal: FUN..... How can we go wrong? The riders get to play with their bikes all afternoon while the wife and kids go to the fair. Dirt bikes and Corn Dogs, we are already winning.
So we plan on building some sort of race course, it's going to be a fun easy track. Yes the word "EnduroCross" has been used, but that's not accurate, the GonzoCross course will be much easier and we won't use any big bike eating rocks, safe for you, safe for your bike.
As the racing progresses through the show, we will gradually make the track tougher and tougher. We don't have details yet, but expect a bunch of fun easy riding early and some trickier riding coming at the end.
Grandstand passes are $5, pit passes are $10, and entry fees are $25 per class. Signups are from 4:30-6:30. Everybody will be given one sighting lap at 6:30, and heats will start at 7:00. Everybody will get two heats, and the second heat will be the tie breaker.
