After cancelling the first two rounds of this year’s season due to inclement weather, Quadcross Northwest bounced back at Horn Rapids in Richland, Washington to a great turnout and great weather. Several classes are stacked with talent and the new shirts for this year are looking prime as well.

Saturday greeted racers with partially cloudy skies and cooler morning temperatures that moved into the mid-60s for the afternoon motos. Perfect racing weather, though a bit breezy. Saturday’s ProAm gate would hold 17 riders, including 3 from the Pro class. It would be the 02 of Jace Johnson that would make his way out front quickly and begin putting in solid laps with a gap ahead of Pros Rich Moore and Ruby Davis. Eventually Johnson faded and Pit Traffic rider Ruby Davis would take the lead and the win, followed by Rich Moore, Jace Johnson, Bryan Martin and Jesse Milbrath.

EWDRA Spring Hare Scramble

EWDRA_14Spring71The Eastern Washington Dirt Riders Association put on their annual Spring Hare Scramble this past weekend at Horn Rapids Motorsports Complex in Richland, Washington. The race, which has been going on for almost 30 years, is a NW classic for bikes and quads.

Temperatures were in the high 30s and low 40s for most of the day making racers a little chilly for the start. Racers line up their quads, they stand about 30 feet behind them. When the start signal goes off, racers must run to their quads, start them, and take off down the drag strip. This creates a slight advantage for electric start quads. This year’s course utilized most of Horn Rapid’s MX track and much of the complex’s off road trails as well. Racers can opt for 2 or 4 laps of approximately 11 miles.

Quadcross Northwest Opener at Woodland

banner
Thanks to the great companies (and more need to be added), riders, and families, the Quadcross NW series is a go!

In typical Northwest fashion the spring weather was unpredictable but the turnout did not suffer at the opening round of the 2013 season of Quadcross Northwest. Riders braved rain, hail, gusts of wind and muddy conditions to start the season off this year right. After money fell through for the season, there was a last minute four-week scramble to kick the series off. After several companies came through with cash and families and riders donated what they could the series was announced as going forward. Riders from Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Canada came to race, and what racing there was!

Saturday’s racing was a swampy mess and parts of the track were closed after eating several 450s. This shortened lap times to just over a minute for most classes, but riders were frustrated and it took one victim. PitTraffic.com rider Chris Frazier, who moved into the Production A class this year had a stellar first moto Saturday, taking the win over Colton Wehrman and Ben Hottel. Unfortunately Chris crashed in Moto 2 and broke his pelvis in 3 places resulting in an ambulance ride and a hospital stay. This left Wehrman open to take the win followed by Joshua Taylor and Ben Hottel.
