Perfect setting at Walton in the early morning.
The MX2 Juniors had first moto Thursday. It’s always a race to watch because track conditions are always perfect for this moto.
Owen Whelan grabbed the holeshot in the deep tilled dirt. He would get stuck with a flat rear tire for most of the moto and grabbed a 6th. 6-8-6 for 5th overall.
Wyatt Wadell ended up taking the lead early in the moto and he checked out. 1-4-1 moto scores would also land him the championship!
Carter Hucherson, Wyatt Wadell, and Alex Jeffrey were up and around this podium all week long. Carter grabbed 4th overall with 3-5-8 moto scores, and Alex Jeffrey grabbed 2nd overall with 2-3-2 scores.
Charlie Rousseau grabbed the biggest holeshot of the week in 85cc 7-11. Charlie got 4th overall in the mini class.
Bradely Vanleeuwen took a couple of holeshots during the week. Here he is in GP Junior fending off Owen Whelan. Brad took 9th overall in GP, and 4th overall in MX1.
Supermini was a wicked class to watch. The 4 mini riders Joey Crown, Willam Crete, Tanner Ward, and Casey Keast were all very fast and close in speed. Keast would take the overall, Crete second, and Ward would wrap up third.
Nathan Cryer skies out the Scott natural double. Cryer grabbed 6th overall.
Owen Whelan ripped his older brother’s 2-stroke for the week and clearly liked it alot! Whelan capped off his week with a 3rd overall in MX1 Junior.

Kennedy Lutz was consistent in the Ladies class going 2-2-3 for 2nd overall.
Brad Williams skying out the step down.
