STEEL CITY MAY 26, 2013 - PAMX SPRING SERIES
What a day, it started out very chilly but that didn't keep the riders off the track for practice or the spectators around the fence.
With the Memorial Day weekend and a few Regionals around the classes were much smaller than usual. The numbers may have been down but the action was as always some of the best racing around.
The 250A Class had Joey Deneen, Jason McConnell and Alex Odell, sporting his new national number #579 taking the track as if there were another 30 riders chasing them around the Steel City track. In the 250B Class Jared Lesher and Timmy Crosby held the top positions in front of riders like Jarrett Thompson, Garrett Smith and Brock Bell. By the way there were some exciting changes to the track. The smaller hill heading in front of the bleachers and concession stand has been changed. It now comes off the rhythm section coming from down from the table tops and has a couple of doubles that lead to the Pro National Table top finish line. Also the section that has been closed off for the amateurs over the past year after the big uphill double was open to the riders to ride the sky coaster once again. Was so beautiful watching riders sail over that technical part of Steel City with a pass or two on their competitors.
In the Open A & B class there were more A riders going at it. Alex Odell and Broc Streit were going head to head most of the 10 minute moto. Broc took the early lead with Alex getting around him mid moto. Joey Deneen and Jason McDonnell were not too far behind the leaders.
In the 85 class it was very good to see Jacob Posey back out racing. Seth Andres was up in front. In the +45 Classes Ralph Bentley secured both 1st place wins with Todd Streit and Rick Barrett keeping in close positions. The women shared this moto with the men which had Taylor Levic out in front with Tiffany Palacki and Jessica Coombs in the mix.
Mimi and I spent a good many moto's down toward the pond where the table top sends the rider into the air. What a show our talented riders put on down there. The riders were sailing, whipping, giving look overs and many waves. Of course this all takes my breathe away; I continue pressing the button on the camera as fast as I can to pick up the VERY quick action. Be sure that you check out the pBase Gallery of these riders. FLYERS!
The day moved along even with track maintenance with moisture and disking done often. I think the 10 minute motos had more than a few wishing that their motos were over. Those bikes looked pretty darn heavy going over the Pro finish line table top. I know I am always talking about the talent that we have here to watch and there was none less there on the Steel City track. You riders are awesome to take pictures of. THANK YOU!!!
