BIG 6 GRAND PRIX ROUND 5 : PRIMM NEVADA

Buffalo Bills Hotel & Casino played host to round 5 of the District 37 Big 6 GP series put on by the Shamrocks MC. With less than ideal conditions, the fastest riders in the west did battle for a solid hour and a half for bragging rights going into the summer break and a nice chunk of the $2,000 Pro purse money.

DSC_2447Test rider Blayne Thompson was out front early dropped down a couple positions during a pit stop and then charged back to win the overall aboard his FastHouse backed Honda CRF450R.

DSC_2449OX Motorsports backed Zach Bell was in a battle with just about everyone up front for the win. He would have to settle for 2nd overall at round 5

DSC_2456Eric Yorba put his RPM Race Team KTM on the podium in 3rd overall. Yorba ran up front all race and actually took the lead a little past halfway but lost it while pitting for gas.

DSC_2481RPM Racing KTM rider Dante Oliveria dominated the Pro 2 class.

DSC_2482Mitch Anderson is always a player to win the Pro 2 class and in Primm Nevada it was business as usual. He ran up front but would have to settle for second in the Pro 2 class.

Eric Yorba still has a shot at retaining his number one plate, but with three rounds left, the window is closing.
