AMA WEST HARE SCRAMBLE, ROUND 2
The Kenda/SRT AMA West Hare Scrambles (WHS) Regional Championship Series, Presented by MojoMotorsport.com, returned to Prescott Valley, Arizona, for round two. Last year, it was a favorite race because the area is awesome and the group putting it on did an excellent job. This year, the Field Craft Survival Rough Rider 100, the Arizona Off-road State Championship offered even more prize money, drawing more than a few folks who don’t normally compete in the WHS. While rain, wind and snow made things challenging for everyone involved, it contributed to the racing being closer and fiercer than if it had been dry and dusty. In the end, 2017 series champ Max Gerston broke away to win for the first time since round one last year, forcing him to at least consider doing a few more of these, since his contract with Beta USA is only for EnduroCross and extreme enduro . The money also attracted SLR Honda ‘s Ricky Dietrich, the WORCS regular having a great time battling before ending up second with Joe Wasson third. Zane Roberts won the Pro 250 class convincingly, placing 10th overall. On Saturday, Brandy Richards topped the Women Pro race to pick up a fat $1250 from The Rowdy Rose, followed by Shelby Turner Racing. Preston Boespflug came from Washington to try his hand at some off-road racing and ran away with both the Big Wheel and Super Mini Challenge exhibition races. Click here for full results.
