2009 Stoney Lonesome Team Race

The annual Stoney Lonesome Hare scramble team race was held Sunday November 15th. After a year of rainy weather races, mother nature cooperated and provided for a fantastic day and awesome track conditions. The weather and quest for a spot on the coveted "ROCK" brought a wealth of talent lined up on the front row. Brothers Jeff and Andy Cregg barely inched out Jake Fiddler and his partner Koonts with the final ditch crossing being the deciding point in the race. Congratulations to Jeff and Andy for their hard fought victory.

2009 Stoney Series Race #5

The fifth and final round of the 2009 Stoney Lonesome Hare scramble Championship Series was held Sunday August 16th. Unlike the four previous races of the 2009 Stoney Lonesome MC Championship Series, there had been no rain leading up to the event and the conditions were fantastic. With this being the final round of the championship series, there were several class championships that would be decided by this event. One key battle was sure to shape up in the Mini 85CC class between Luke Chilman, Taylor Day and Keagen Lee. These three have all taken the time to be in the spotlight at some point during the series. The points battle was so close that the top rider of these three would win the championship for 2009. Luke Chilman fired off the line with the hole shot and never looked back nor was there a significant challenge. Talyor day and Keagen Lee fought hard, but were unable to reel in Chilman. (85CC top Three in Photo) Michael Witkowski remained untouchable in the 65CC class with Eric Douglass following in second place. The big bike race consisted on 4.9 miles of relatively unused ground with a few established trails thrown in. Jeff Cregg continued his winning ways leading every lap of the race. Nathan Sullivan followed in second place with John Robbins landing the third place overall.

2009 Stoney Series Race #4

The fourth round of the 2009 Stoney Lonesome Hare scramble Championship Series was held Sunday July 12th. All three races of the 2009 Stoney Lonesome MC Championship Series were plagued with significant rain leading up to the events and this would be no different. Amaizingly, the ground conditions seemed to hold up throughout the entire day. In the PeeWee race, both Jacob Stark and Langdon Feltner continued their dominance running away with their class victories. Keagan Lee battled back and forth with Luke Chilman for the lead and eventually the win in the 85CC class and Mini overall victory. Michael Witkowski remained untouchable in the 65CC class with Eric Douglass following in second place. The big bike race challegened riders with slick and established trails, relatively unused ground, rocky hills and steep climbs up the infamous Cox's Hill. Jeff Cregg continued his winning ways but did not take the lead until lap three. Nathan Sullivan followed in second place with John Robbins landing the third place overall. The Heavy B class found a new winner this race with Travis Perry finishing on top for the first time in his bike career.

2009 Stoney Series Race #3

(Full Story)

The first round of the Hoosier Hare scramble Championship Series of 2009 was held at the Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club. The first two races of the 2009 Stoney Lonesome MC Championship Series were plagued with significant rain leading up to the events as well as rain on the race day. Round three proved to be no different with heavy rains starting at 4:30AM on race day. The mini course was laid out with tight turns and as much of the available flat land that exists, which is minimal. The big bike course was significantly lengthened in an attempt to preserve the track conditions during the race. Lengthening the course required very close proximity of trails and an increase required awareness of course arrows. In the PeeWee race, both Jacob Stark and Langdon Feltner picked up where they left off at the last SLMC race. Both Stark and Feltner ran away with their class victories. Taylor Day (pictured) cruised through the trails and the 85CC class appearing to have little issue with the greasy conditions landing both the 85CC class and Mini OVerall victories. Michael Witkowski struggled at the start with a bike that would not start, but picked through the riders one by one eventually taking the lead on the second lap. The big bike race exposed riders to many challenges during the race, primarily brought on by Mother Nature. Jeff Cregg continued his winning ways while struggling with brake issues. Logan Chilman rode hard landing the second place overall.

2009 Stoney Series Race #2

(Full Story)

The 2009 Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club championship series second race was held in the completely saturated southern Indiana terrain. The courses were laid out with the saturation ground taken into consideration, but there is not much that can be done in these conditions. The PeeWee racers faced a shortened course to avoid the slimy off camber sections. Jacob Stark landed his second victory in a row and his career in the PeeWee Injector class. Langdon Feltner made the course look easy with his consistent lap times resulting in his first win in the PeeWee premix class at Stoney Lonesome. The Mini course unfolded with both Witkowski brothers (Alex and Michael) winning the 85CC and 65CC races. The big bike race course was shortened as well with an attempt to avoid sections that typically fall apart in the soaked conditions. Jeff Cregg continued his winning ways followed by the exact top five finish order as we saw in the first race of the series.

2009 Stoney Series Race #1

The 2009 Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club championship series first race of the season kicked off with one hundred Big Bikes and ended with Jeff Cregg picking up where he left off in 2008 landing the overall victory. The course consisted of over 6 miles of classic Stoney terrain which had a good flow and challenging variety. The PeeWee racers blazed into the slick and rain soaked track first thing in the morning with little difficulty. PeeWee Coordinator, John Robbins, provided the kids with a good mix of switch backs with a few higher speed sections needed for tire cleaning. Tanner Guerrettaz and Jacob Stark landed their first wins of the 2009 series. The Mini course provided for some great racing for kids in all classes. A few of the sections also provided an opportunity for them to work on their "body english" in the mud and ruts. For detailed race results, please - Click here
