Colt Brinkerhoff AMA National Hare and Hound Race Report Round 2

AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 2 Checkers 2015

 

Barstow, CA 2/22/2015- Man, I was excited to see this new venue, only racing NHHA for a few years; I never had the chance to race in Barstow. It hosts some of the gnarliest terrain on the west coast with multiple “SCORE” roads, very rocky and not a lot of places to pass on the virgin parts of the course. I had the “Rat Rod” prepped and ready for battle in the high California desert. I had the engine redone after the first race along with changing my Elka Suspension around a bit. The quad was amazing!  As a Massachusetts native would say “My Moto Xperts/Hot Cams/Hot Rod/Cylinder Works/Vertex Piston TRX engine is a rippa!” I also, have to thank Jay at Impact Solutions for dialing in my Elkas, they worked really hard for me to make them the best they can be. Did some shock tuning with Alex and James Ortiz out at their house had a lot of laughs and got my quad working great.

I ended up driving down by myself to pick up some race fuel from RSI and my main man Jay Young of Team True Racing delivering it to Skyler and I. That was a huge help to both of our programs so thanks to them. I had to stop several times on the way as I was having some stomach issues early on, I felt like Harry Dunn (Dumb and Dumber) when Lloyd pours him some “superlax”….Haha! I had finally made it to the race site and settled in. My girlfriend
Rachel and her dad showed up shortly after. We got everything ready and rode a couple times to give the quads a shake down. I did some minor changes to the shocks and they were better than ever. I was Dungey pumped!

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report Final Round of National Hare and Hound

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report
AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 10 100 MC’s

Lucerne, CA – I was really excited to head down to the 7th layer of hell, Lucerne.Skyler and I loaded up from Fasst Company HQ in Washington, UT andjetted to Cali. I always hear that Biggie Smalls song Going back to Cali” thumpin in my head on race weekends, it’s a good feeling. We arrived late, spoke the Blais crew and hit the hay. I stayed on the floor of the van and it felt like I was sharing a bunk in prison cell. My head was in cubby hole, I had about 4×4 of room and I have a big head, so this was really comfy. I woke up around 4AM to take a leak. As I was doing so, I heard a pack of coyote’s to my back howling into the night. It was unsettling like eating a Chipotle burrito so I got back in the van and shut the door. We awoke to a great day for some testing, low winds and great temps reaching into the high 70’s. I got the quad all dialed in with the help of Chris Blais and had a good time chatting it up with everyone. The wind came and it was a disaster for a bit trying to get the kids some candy and hot dogs provided by Patty Blais. Everyone had a great time and we headed for bed. Knowing I had the championship wrapped up, I slept easy.

For Immediate Release: Goldspeed racers dominate at final WORCS round of 2014

WORCS_Primm_2014_Dillon_ZimmermanLas Vegas Nevada 11/1/14
Goldspeed Products backed racers recently wrapped up the 2014 WORCS season and did so in domineering style.  David Flores took the overall in the competitive Pro-Am class and Pro class racer Dillon Zimmerman made a triumphant return after missing several rounds due to injury with a season best second place finish.
After a frustrating crash that resulted in torn ligaments in his elbow, Goldspeed/JRiShocks racer Dillon Zimmerman was sidelined for what appeared to be the remainder of the 2014 season.  After almost three months of rest, Zimmerman was given the green light from doctors to compete at the series finale in Primm, Nevada.

The time off proved beneficial for Zimmerman as he was able to secure his best finish of the season.  Coming off the line in 5th, Zimmerman managed to pick up one position before leaving the offroad truck portion of the track despite heavy pressure from Josh Row.  Holding his position, Zimmerman would eventually pass Robbie Mitchel to take over third place as the pair entered one of the many whoop sections on the brutal Primm course.

Dick Jagow Memorial GP

The Dick Jagow Memorial GP always takes place at the end of September at Washougal MX. Compromising both the MX and the extensive off-road of Washougal, this race is one that you don’t want to miss – so make plans for next year. The Mt. Scott Motorcycle Club puts on an excellent event and is very accommodating to quads. Although quads are the last race of the day it makes for an easy morning travel and maybe getting home a little late depending on where you live. 90 minutes of MX, trails, and shredding around Washougal. It’s worth a late night on Sunday.

GNCC Slightly Bent Race Report – Round 8

sbr-bannerSlightly Bent Racing Report
2014 GNCC – Round 8
Millfield, OH ~ This week the team gathered at the famous Sunday Creek Raceway to once again take on the woods of Ohio.  The Wiseco John Penton has not only become a staple on the GNCC circuit, but a regular stop for team SBR as well.  Although the weather for race day was definitely hot, it was a much more bearable heat than in years past.  The open field sections were plagued with dust but once you reentered the woods you were greeted with some great racing conditions.  I’d say lady luck was on our side when it came to the weather, but she was pretty selective when it came to the results.
So, do you want the good news or the bad news first?  Good news it is!  The Derisi Racing backed Honda of Colton White put on an exciting show this weekend.  Each race that Colton attends he gains a little more experience, acquires a few more skills, and learns from what ever mistakes he made.  Ending the day with a 1st place in the Sport 15+ class, we are looking forward to watching him work again in 2 weeks.  Silver Masters 55+ rider Donnie Pruett finds himself on a four race winning streak.  Donnie has always done well in tough conditions where smart riding is critical, so let’s see if he can put the #920 Quadtech backed Honda on top again at Snowshoe.  Vet B rider Dan Webb once again put in some solid work and wound of taking home a 9th place finish for the day.  Dan is sitting 4th in points which should give him a front row advantage for the in town start coming up.
