ROUND 2 OF THE AME AMATEUR MX

The second round of AME Amatuer MX started to see things heat up in a few classes.

The stars of the big bike classes clashed with a heated battle between KTM support rider, Josh Varize and Fly Racing’s Degan Palmer with a very intense fight in both 250 Open Non Pro and Amateur All Stars classes. In the end it was a split decision with Palmer fighting his way to the win in the 250 Non Pro and Varize taking it wire to wire in the All Stars. Nor Cal’s Tyler Ducray gets an honorable mention for mixing it up with leaders in the All Star main event under guidance from Eric Ducray.

Lawson Dye’s starts were on point today with 5 out of 6 holeshots in the 85cc 7-11 , 85 Novice and 85 Open classes. In the end, Lawson won the 85 Novice main and came to within half a lap of winning his second class the 85cc 7-11 class, but an aggressive pass by Alvin Hillan dropped him to second place in front of hard charging ASV rider, Dane Morales.

Next came the battles in the 65cc ranks as top ranked mini pilot from Bali Kelana Humphrey took on Nor Cal mini star, Alvin Hillan.

Kelana scored the 10-11 years old main win after a slide out by Hillan late in the main event. Hillan returned in the 65cc Open showdown where each of the two future stars ran it in on each other in one heck of an exciting main event. In the end, Hillan proved stronger and took the gold in front of Humphrey and Jaxson Butte.

Wyatt Thurman owned the 51cc division with wins in both 6-8 year old and 51cc Open classes with out a hitch, but found Jesse Shedden to be a little too tough in the 65cc 7-9 year old class where the high desert kid laid the hammer down for an undisputed victory.

In all it was a very exciting Round 2 with some epic rivalry’s starting to take form. Round 3 is next Saturday at Glen Helen where all racers will face a brand new Amatuer SX track.
