DASA's Brad Riley Wins
Pro ATV Season Finale at Busco Beach
After winning his heat race earlier in the day,
the #038 of DASA / PEP / Fly’s Michael Coburn
would slide his way up to the second place spot
around the first few turns and remain there for
the rest of the race to come away with an impressive
finish to round out the year.
“I was behind Harold, and I was really trying
to challenge him. I actually got passed a couple
of times and was back in fourth for a little while,
but then I worked my way back to second place. It
was super close and we were having a lot of fun.
All of us were riding as fast as we could and we
stayed clean the whole time. It’s great to
end the year on the podium in second. We have plans
for next year and got a good idea of what to expect.
My sponsors have all helped me out a lot and I want
to thank them as well. We are hopeful for a few
more podiums next year and will be looking forward
to that!,” said Coburn after the pro main.
#038 Michael Coburn finished out the season
with a 2nd place finish, which was his best
finish since round 3 in his homestate of
The #25 of TRE / PEP / Fly / Close Encounters
Whitetail Outfitters’ Chuckie Creech would
put his Roberts Racing TRX450R into the second
place spot and would come away with a 3rd place
finish on the pro box for the main event after
an extremely fast paced, hard fought battle.
Chuckie Creech held off #708 Harold Goodman
to secure the final spot on the Podium
“I came off the line in second place right
behind Harold, and I was trying really hard to
come off that outside line but I was just slipping
a bit much and drifted wide. It was chaos on there
with so many guys and pushing as hard as we can
for a full 20 laps! It turned out really good
and I’m really happy to be up here. The
bike setup for this year was all brand-new and
we spent a lot of time figuring everything out.
Wayne from PEP is a genius with these shocks and
after he helped me with the setup my year turned
right around and I feel so much better on the
quad. It was great to come out here and get on
the podium again and take that finish in my home
state!,” said Creech after the race.

The Bumblebee, #708 Harold Goodman would come
off the line swinging and rip the holeshot for
the early lead. He would then continue his pace
around the tight dusty track until later on when
he’d lose a bit of traction.
“I got the tires pretty hot during the
main and just pushed a bit wide is all. I came
off with a 4th but that’s how it goes! I
wrapped up the Pro championship on Friday night,but
I still wanted that win tonight, but I just couldn’t
make it stick. It was really nice to be able to
come out here, take the win Friday night, and
then have a relaxed weekend after that. After
the bobble, I let the boys go and run their own
race. Next year we’re really looking to
bring it right back to the series again and with
help from sponsors we’ll be able to do that
and keep looking forward to the future,”
said Harold after the race.
#338 Brian Ace came on strong in the final
3 rounds of the season & edged out
#53 Kirby Cooke for a Top 5 finish at
the Pro season finale
#338 Hellbound/Roberts Racing/PEP’s Brian
Ace would be able to come away with a 5th place
finish after a tough battle with the top contenders.
Ace would come off the line in about 6th place
leading into the first set of outside-inside option
lanes. Ace would then work his way back up and
would do battle with a few riders until the pack
settled out and he could ride smoothly in 5th
place. Ace would ride on the rear bumpers of the
top 4 and wisely wait for a mistake. Unfortunately
Ace wouldn’t be able to capitalize on any
such occurrence but would nevertheless race to
a clean finish.
