Day three of the ATV Olympics proved to be another exciting day of racing. The weather was great for the final day of racing. The track conditions were perfect when the race started, but as the day went on the tracx looked more like a paved highway with some nasty pot holes.

There were two motos for the TT Event, but the 1st Moto only determined gate position for the 2nd Moto. Some racers coasted through the 1st Moto to save their energy for the Main.

The Race Report is only going to cover the 2nd Moto!


Pro Race:

The Pro Class only had 7 racers, and John Natalie Jr signed up at the last minute to compete after suffering from severve blisters from the XC event.

Jeremiah Jones grabbed the Holeshot!
