Team Race FUN

The weather leading up to the annual Stoney Team Race was shaping up to provide a perfect day of fun. Mother nature decided to open up the skies and rain all day on Saturday. Much to everyones surprise, the track conditions were no affected in any way. The Mini Teams started in the cold morning with 9 teams heading into 3.3 mile damp, leaf covered terrain. Vincent Smith and Dawson Dunnuck wasted no time in setting a blistering pace that led them to the overall Mini team race victory. Kayden Young decided to Ironman the event and landed in the second place spot followed by Langdon Feltner and Casey Moore. The Big bike race covered 5.7 miles twisting all throughout the property - into ravines, up the hills and over the logs. The race started out rough for a few top teams with their riders going out with some substantial injuries. This shook up the anticipated show-downs and put a little extra pressure on the other team mates. Nathan Sullivan crashed out early in the second lap which put Jeff Cregg in the position of running the remaining race solo. The 2nd and 3rd place 2012 Series Championship riders (Jesse Parr and Matt Hatchet) experience a similar situation with Parr taking himself out early in the race as well. The Team of Luke and Logan Chilman charged hard all day and came just a minute and a half short of getting their names on the coveted "ROCK" representing the many years of Stoney Team Race Champions. Duel Murphy was a dedicated IRONMAN racer and landed in the third spot overall after the 3 hour adventure. The team of Kent and William Wagner conquered the Father/Son championship.

The PeeWee racers started the day of racing with nine riders looking for a win. In the PreMix class, Garrett Mundy and Austin Hopkins left the field in what would turn out to be a close race to the very end. Hopkins took the lead early and held on to win his second consecutive Stoney victory. Emma Schoolcraft rode a flawless race in the Injector class and secured the win. The mini riders shot into the woods also hoping to secure a class win. Vincent Smith came through in the lead on the first lap, but faced a challenge from Dawson Dunnuck who was in hot pursuit. John Henry Robinson came through in the third place spot. Smith slowly pulled away and took his fifth consecutive win in the super mini class securing the series championship. Langdon Feltner rolled through the check first in the 85CC class and put together consistent laps and took the win ahead of Ryan Sacco. The 65CC class was an exciting race. Colton Beavers was able to pull a slight lead over Lance Maschino and Logan McNeil on the first lap. The three of them drew closer and closer as the race progressed. In the end, Beavers held onto the lead to win his first 65CC race at Stoney Lonesome followed by McNeil and Maschino with four seconds separating the three racers. The big bike field consisted of 86 racers shooting to be the first into the woods. The course covered the majority of the property which created a 6.4 mile loop for the riders. Jeff Cregg and Nathan Sullivan battled through the first four laps, but the consistent riding of Cregg prevailed in the end. With this being the final round of the series, several class championships where on the line. An exciting battled had developed in the Open A class between Jesse Parr, Matt Hatchet and Anthony Wagler. The tree of them raced wheel to wheel changing leaders throughout the first three laps of the race. Hatchet fell from contention, but Wagler and Parr continued the battle until Parr prevailed to take his fifth consecutive victory and his first Stoney Lonesome MC Championship. In addition to winning the Open A championship, Parr secured a second place overall series championship behind Jeff Cregg.

MORE - DUST - DUST - DUST for Round #4

The fourth round of the 2012 Stoney Lonesome Championship Series was held Sunday July 22nd in continued extremely dusty conditions. In the PeeWee race, Austin Hopkins took the lead on the first lap in hopes of stealing a win from the undefeated Garrett Mundy. Mundy had a mishap early in the race and Hopkins maintained his smooth riding style allowing him to continuously extend his lead and take his first victory of the year at Stoney Lonesome. Emma Schoolcraft minimized her mistakes to take another win in the PeeWee Injector class. The mini class riders were sent out on a 4 mile course winding throughout the majority of the property. Vincent Smith was on the gas early coming through with almost a minute lead over second place Dawson Dunnuck. While Smith was sailing along up front, there were changes late in the race for the second through fourth. Dunnuck suffered a flat tire dropping him to a fourth place finish. Young was able to find his groove and take second with a comfortable lead over Aliff in third. John Henry Robinson was trying everything he could to take the fourth place spot away from Dunnuck, but fell 0:01 short. Langdon Felnter was having a great ride today taking a commanding victory in the 85cc class. Kyle McManus was able to hold off Casey Moore to take second by 0:52. Lance Mashino brought home another win in the 65cc class followed by Colton Beavers and Sam Hall. The big bike course covered 5.7 miles, but avoided all of the notorious Stoney Challenges. Jeff Cregg switched from his typical 4 stroke and jumped on to a two stroke - it paid off with a great start in the dust. Nate Sullivan and Luke Chilman were forced to ride in the thick dust while Cregg cruised with clean air. Sullivan maintained second place by about twenty seconds over Chilman until late in the fifth lap when Chilman capitalized on a suspension issue Sullivan was experiencing. Jesse Parr, Matt Hatchet and Anthony Wagler were providing excitement for the spectators with a very tight battle for the Open A class. Parr was able to hang on for his fourth consecutive Open A win at Stoney, but unfortunately, Wagler exited early with a crash related injury. Stoney Lonesome MC would like to extend a special thanks to all those that came out for the fourth round and faced the hot and dusty conditions.

DUST - DUST - DUST for Round #3

The third round of the 2012 Stoney Lonesome Championship Series was held Sunday June 24th in extremely dusty conditions. The PeeWee racers were provided an extra long course allowing them to be spread out more to keep the dust to a minimum. Garrett Mundy wasted no time in gaining the lead and maintaining it throughout the event. Hagan Weiderstaz picked his way through the bigger PeeWee Mix bikes while building his lead against Emma Schoolcraft. Hagan rode a smooth race and landed the victory. The Mini Bike racer faced a little more dust that the PeeWee riders. With the holeshot providing a key advantage, the super mini row was very focused on the Referee as he yelled 10 seconds. Dawson Dunnuck, Kayden Young and Vincent Smith all hit the first corner hoping to edge out each other. Dunnuck made it into the woods first followed by Smith and Young. Smith took over the lead early on and stretched to a one minute lead over Dunnuck. Smith later fell of his pace allowing Dunnuck and Young to close in. Young made the pass on Dunnuck and reeled in Smith. In the end, Smith stepped it back up and landed the win followed by Young and Dunnuck. Langdon Feltner was on a mission in the 85CC class as was Lance Maschino in the 65cc class. They both rode good races and took home the 1st place hardware. The big bike crowd was slightly down given the dusty conditions, but that did not slow down the competition. The dusty simply rose up through the trees and hung like a thick fog. Fortunately, the 6.1 mile course had enough tight and technical turning sections to keep the speed at a reasonable level given the conditions. Nate Sullivan was hoping for the win, but Jeff Cregg as able to make the pass with one and a half laps to go. Sullivan held on as long as he could, but fell 40 seconds short, struggling to see through the dust. Jesse Parr had the hammer down landing a 3rd place overall from the second row. It was quite interesting watching parr switch between the inflatable cast and the riding boot for the race. When you have the urge, you have the urge. A special thanks to all those that came out to Stoney's 3rd round and faced the hot and dusty conditions.

Stoney Round #2: Great weather and fantastic racing

The second round of the 2012 Stoney Lonesome Championship Hare scramble Series was held June 3rd in near perfect racing conditions. The planned Live Scoring experienced some cellular connection issues, but we will have it up and running for our next event. The property was extremely dry and dusty leading up to the event and the rain fell at just the right time. The early part of the race had signs of dust, but by the second lap had gone away. The PeeWee track provided the kids with close racing conditions. Garrett Mundy was challenged early in the race, but eventually pulled away for his second win in a row. In the PW Injector class, Hagan Weiderstats and Emma Schoolcraft changed leads throughout the entire race. At the white flag, it appeared that Hagan was going to take the win, but Emma pulled it out with a late lap pass to take the win and a third place overall. In the Mini race, Vincent Smith put on a very impressive display with a run-a-way victory. The battle for second through fourth was pretty intense between John Henry Robinson, Zach Adams and Dawson Dunnuck. The three of them traded spots with Dawson taking charge mid way through the race. Zach Adams put on a late race charge and opened up a 20 second gap over Dunnuck to take the 2nd place spot. Langdon Feltner and Lance Maschino (part of the Mascatatuck River Bottom Riders) each dominated their classes in impressive fashion. The Big Bike race started with over one hundred riders venturing into the 5+ mile course. The course had quite a bit of tight turns in the initial portion which led to an opened faster section after the climb up Coxy's hill. Ethan Chaille had a glimmer of hope leading the first lap with Jeff Cregg and a train of AA riders following close behind. Cregg took the lead on the 2nd lap and opened up almost a 3 minute gap by the end of the race. In the end, Cregg took the overall followed by Christopher Akaydin and Nathan Sullivan.
