Between the wet ground and the cool weather, conditions were almost perfect in Laughlin Nevada for the Best In The Desert’s U.S. Hare Scrambles, Saturday. Ty Davis and Nick Pearson teamed to win the race in a knock-down-drag-out battle that lasted from the start to the finish. It all boiled down to a finish-line collision between Davis and Destry Abbott, with Davis coming out on top. Prior to that, it was the team of Kurt Caselli and Russ Pearson that led much of the race, with Luca Trussardi and Gorden Ward even taking a turn up front. By the halfway point, those four teams had a huge lead as most of the larger Open class bikes fell behind, unable to keep the pace on the twisty course. One of the noteable attendees was Scott Summers?he rode the entire race solo. Technically his partner was Johnny Campbell. But, Campbell was racing in South America, so the still-injured Summers just kept an even pace to earn a few points. In the official Iron Man class (which gets a checkered flag at the two-thirds point) Greg Zitterkopf was an easy winner over surprise entry Mike Metzger. Official results are still being sorted out–evidently there was some confusion over course markings on the first loop, with the greater majority of the pro teams cutting off a section. Any penalties will be unlikely to affect the top four positions.
