Precision Concepts/THR rider Robby Bell came from behind to  top a very competitive Big 6 GP at Ridgecrest, California this weekend. It was  put together by the Viewfinders MC, which puts together the oldest continuously-running Grand Prix in Southern California, and was round six of the eight-race series,. This was the first race after the summer break, and temperatures were moderate for the first time in weeks, making for a very big turnout. The Pro class of the So Cal GP saw Ryan Reina put his Kawasaki in front with a howling pack of very fast riders on his heels. Zip-Ty Husqvarna rider rider Blayne Thompson took over on the first lap and then built up a small lead. Bell and points leader Colton Udall were buried back in pack in the early laps, while Big Six newcomer Sean Collier worked his way into second on a borrowed Ox Motorsports Honda.

Eric Yorba, the 2015 Big Six Champion, was second in Ridgecrest.

The race began to tighten up in the late laps. After his pit stop, Thompson still had a fair lead and looked good to take his first Big Six win, while Collier faded back and both Bell and Udall moved forward to race with 2015 Champion Eric Yorba and his RPM Racing KTM for second. On the last lap, the results were scrambled when Thompson ran out of gas. He handed Bell the overall win, while Yorba shook off a run of bad lock to finish second. Udall was third ahead of Collier.

The next round of the series will take place on October 31 in Hungry Valley, and will be organized by the Prospectors MC.
