Stoney Team Race and Banquet ends a great season

The Stoney Lonesome annual team race capped off a great weekend of SLMC activities. The 2011 Stoney Banquet was held at the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds on Saturday evens with almost 300 people in attendance. The great support of our sponsors provided the riders with many prizes and awards for their efforts. The annual team race was held at the club on Sunday November 6th with almost perfect conditions. The track flowed through the more subtle terrain avoiding the hills and creeks allowing riders at all skill levels a chance to enjoy the race. The Mini class started the days activities with only 8 teams and one Ironman rider. The team of Eric Douglass and Keagen Lee were challenged all morning by Vince Smith and Colton Wilkes, but were able to hold on for the overall youth win. The Big Bike team race was very impressing with 35 teams lining up on the front row for the heavy class. The rest of the field was also loaded with teams consisting of the 86-200cc class, Senior 40+, Father/son and Ironman riders. Jeff and Andy Cregg appeared to be the dominant force in the team race, up until the point that Jeff Cregg suffered a rear tire malfunction forcing him to return and transfer the team tag to his brother Andy This allowed Logan and Luke Chilman the change to take the lead and extend the margin to 3:31 at one point. Jeff was able to switch out the rear tire with a spare and take over for Andy and chip away at Chilmans lead. Jeff would remain on the bike for the last 6 laps taking the lead and white flag simultaneously. Cregg held on for the win by a margin of less than 1 minute for this years overall at the team race.

Mother Nature wins at Stoney

The sixth and final round of the 2011 Stoney Lonesome Championship Hare scramble Series was held September 25th in extremely wet conditions. The PeeWee track was changed up from the previous race including a slight increase in track length. Louden Feltner came into this race knowing he had to win the race in order to win the PeeWee Pre Mix Stoney Championship. Feltner wasted no time in charging to the front and holding on for the win. Emma Schoolcraft was looking for a repeat victory at Stoney Lonesome, but Hagan Wiedersatz had different plans. Wiedersatz rode smooth and steady throughout the race and landed the PeeWee Injector class victory. In the Mini race, Johnny Schoolcraft was on a mission to claim the super mini victory, but Max Seacrest and Vince Smith had other plans. Schoolcraft led the first four laps with Smith hanging about 30 seconds back. On the fifth and final lap, Smith was able to make the pass and take the overall victory. Eric Douglass cruised to an easy win in the 85CC class with Tate Guerrettaz taking second. Langdon Feltner and Cameron Lee took the top two spots in the 65cc class. The Big Bike race started about the same time the heavy rains started. The course was routed backwards from the August race with about 20% changed by adding some new trails. In addition to a few challenging hills, a new log pile enduro cross section was added near the spectator region. It was very passable, but required patience and good throttle/clutch control. Jeff Cregg led the race from green to checkered flags taking the overall victory and the Series championship. Jesse Parr was riding exceptionally well taking 2nd place overall starting from the fourth row. Evan Chaille, Andy Cregg and Luke Chilman rounded out the top 5.

Stoney escapes the severe weather, great conditions

The fifth round of the 2011 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series was held August 14th in almost perfect conditions. This was a special event considering it was held in conjunction with MAXC and the Southern Indiana Series. The club grounds were cleaned and cleared into the traditional PeeWee track to allow and accommodate additional parking. The PeeWee track was moved into the more dense woods which allowed the faithful riders to see a completely new part of the property that they typically do not ride on during the races. Louden Feltner and Ethan Sowder had a back and forth race with Feltner hanging on for the win. Emma Schoolcraft finally conquered the Stoney terrain to take her first win in the Injector class at Stoney Lonesome. In the Mini race, an intense battle between Austin Lee and Mike Witkowski was expected by many. Mike Witkoski wasted no time in charging out front, but Lee clung to his rear wheel the entire race. The two leaders came into home check with one lap to go, but the scoring crew failed to get the white flag out in time for the riders to know it was the final lap. Realizing this, a parent ran to a point in the track and informed them as the came through. Witkowski was able to hold on to the win in a bar to bar banging battle with Austin Lee. Tate Guerrettaz has been trying all year to overcome the dominance which Eric Douglass has displayed in the 85cc class. Guerrettaz made his way past Douglass mid way through the race and held him off for the final few laps to lap his first win. In the 65cc class, Kalub Hagan made the journey up from Kentucky to take his shot at the D15 and regular MAXC riders. Hagan, ran away with the 65cc class win and picked off several of the larger 85cc bikes which started 1 minute ahead of the 65cc class. The Big Bike field started with almost 135 riders heading into a 5.5 mile course which consisted of a good flow, tight singlet rack, technical hills and creeks. Chris Bach took the lead early on with Jeff Cregg maintaining his distance just a few seconds back. Unfortunately, Bach suffered a fuel line issue on the 5th lap eliminating his pursuit of a Stoney/MAXC/SIS victory. Cregg assumed the lead with Adam Bonneur bring in second place and Nathan Sullivan rounding out the top 5.

Cregg holds off Bonneur

The fourth round of the 2011 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series was held July 17th in very hot, humid and dusty conditions. The PeeWee riders tackled a new course with a field of 13 riders. Louden Feltner and Garrett Mundy fought hard for the win with Feltner taking the victory in the end. Brody Smith looked like he was on his way to another Stoney win in the injector class until a late race crash wiped out his chances for a season sweep. Austin Hopkins was ready to capitalize on Smith's mistake and take the Injector class win. In the Mini race, Mike Witkoski wasted no time in charging out front to a very impressive lead. the battle for the remaining spots in the super mini class was about as close as it can get. Vince Smith outlasted the field to take the second place spot. In the 85cc class, Eric Douglass once again ran away with the class win with Tate Guerrettaz taking second. The 65cc class came down to the wire with Cameron Lee (pictured) taking the win over Langdon Feltner. The Big Bike field consisted of 116 riders heading into very dry conditions. The course was turned around backwards from the previous week with additional terrain added in to lengthen the track. A descent down the clubhouse hill and a climb up Coxy's hill drew big crowds of spectators. Several new AA riders joined the ranks along with Adam Bonneur from Illinois shooting for that overall victory. Bonneur had the early lead mid way through the first lap until he blew through a corner allowing Jeff Cregg to make the pass going into a ravine. Bonneur would hang within 30 seconds throughout the race, but was unable to close the gap and mount a significant challenge. Cregg rode hard and consistent and earned the overall victory for the Stoney Lonesome MC Round 4.

Mike Witkowski cruised along in the pack of Super Mini riders for the first lap before pouring it on and running away with the overall Mini Victory. Eric Douglass once again put on an impressive showing from the 85CC row finishing 2nd overall. The Big Bike race consisted of 117 riders, all excited about the lack of Mud. Jeff Cregg was the last off the starting line, but took over the lead shortly there after and rode to another victory. Meanwhile, Luke Chilman (pictured) pushed hard throughout the race starting from the fourth row. Chilman worked his way up near the 2nd place overall before running out of fuel near the home check. after a frantic search for a splash, he pushed toward the checkered, only to fall 2 seconds shy (adjusted time) from the 2nd place overall.

Consistency balanced with Survival

The second round of the 2011 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series was plagued with severe weather the evening before the event as well as the morning. Lightening strikes delayed the start of the PeeWee race and even caused it to be red flagged. Once the storms passed, the PeeWee race was restarted and the days events were progressing. Ethan Sowder put on a good show and ran away with the PeeWee Premix victory over Louden Feltner. Brody Smith took the PeeWee Injector class victory in a dominating fashion. Colton Wilkes nailed the holeshot in the Supermini class and never looked back and avoided any significant challenge. Vincent Smith rode hard and took home the second place plaque. The 85CC class started with a scare when a rider was injured on the start. Fortunately there were no serious injuries, but he will be sore for quite some time. Eric Douglass charged hard in the 85CC class and fell 11 seconds short of taking the overall Mini victory finishing in 2nd overall. Cameron Lee put on an impressive show in the 65CC class and took the win. The Big Bike riders face the return of the rainfall. While the trail was laid out in every effort of sustaining the rain, mother nature prevailed and the conditions deteriorated rapidly. Jeff Cregg maintained a consistent pace and won the overall with Nathan Sullivan and Daniel Sims rounding out the top three. Anthony Wagler won the Open A class and finished fourth overall with Chris Jewel taking both Vet A and 5th Overall.

Smith Brothers On TOP

The first round of the 2011 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series was shaping up to be a potential disaster with the forecasted weather and several competing races occurring at the same time. While the rain did arrive as forecasted, it did not appear to impact the loyal riders from tackling the southern Indiana terrain. In the PeeWee ranks, Ethan Sowder and Louden Feltner had a big race which came down to the wire with Sowder edging out Feltner at the finish. In the Injector class, Brody Smith took his first ever win at Stoney Lonesome MC. In the Mini race, Smith's older brother, Jaden W Smith, completely ran away with the overall Mini win in an impressive fashion. Vince Smith fought hard and came from behind to take second place overall in the Mini race. The Big Bike race was shaping up to be a good battle between some some very talented and fast riders. The trail was starting to tack up with minimal mud holes for the riders to avoid. The first two laps were very exciting with Chris Bach and Jeff Cregg running tire to tire and coming through the gate almost two minutes ahead of third place. Unfortunately for Cregg, mechanical problems eliminated his shot at the overall win allowing Bach to cruise through the rest of the race at a comfortable pace.
