Kelsey Sweeps the Grids: Five Races and Five Wins at Eagles Canyon Raceway

Danny Kelsey swept his races, entering five and taking all five wins with his two Pirelli-shod Suzuki GSX-R's during CMRA's round three sprint event on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at Eagles Canyon Raceway. Another weekend of huge sprint grids had sunny skies, 80-degree temperatures, and a steady breeze, but drainage areas on the track from rain earlier in the week still left some very slick spots, creating challenging riding conditions.

Kelsey rode his Suzuki GSX-R1000 to the win in the Breast Cancer Research Foundation/P1 Racing Formula 1 Expert, RaceworX A Superstock Expert, and HighPerformanceCrew.com A Superbike Expert classes. He took the wins in B Superbike Expert and TrackTactics Track Days B Superstock Expert on his GSX-R750.

Noble, Oklahoma rider, Conner Blevins onboard his Kawasaki ZX-6R took four podiums home as well, with the win in C Superbike Expert, second in South Central Race Center C Superstock Expert, B Superbike Expert, and third place in B Superstock Expert.

Jesse Davis grabbed three wins in Formula 2 Expert, Lightweight Twins Expert, and D Superbike Expert with his Ducati 992R.

Danny Kelsey on his Suzuki GSX-R1000 bested Ty Howard on his Dunlop-shod KTM RC8 to win the day's headline race, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation/P1 Racing Formula 1 Expert. Interesting track conditions caused by drainage issues made for tricky and fast paced action. Kelsey and Howard were at it from the moment the start light went out. Howard turned the fastest lap of the race at 1:47.857, but couldn't hold off Kelsey. Howard also had Ryan Andrews astride his Ducati 1198R breathing down his neck from third place. Kelsey got by Howard, made a run for the checkers, taking the win by 3.5 seconds, putting Howard in second place. Howard gapped Andrews, leaving him with third place.

Derek Wagnon, William Guthrie, Eddie Thornton, Hayden Schultz, Ted Phillips, Eric Williams, and Will Zamora rounded out the top 10 on a 19-bike grid. Hayden Schultz won the $100 P1 Racing cash purse again for riding the first 600 to cross the finish line during the Formula 1 race. Bringing awareness to finding a cure for Breast Cancer is an important aspect of this race and a donation is made by the CMRA to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each entry in the race. Qualifying for the race is sponsored by 212Decals.com and Howard, Kelsey and Thornton all received a share of the $150 cash purse.

The next match up between the powerhouses of Kelsey and Howard took place in HighPerformanceCrew.com A Superbike Expert. Howard and Kelsey battled it out again, with Howard turning a blazing fastest lap of 1:47.846. Kelsey answered with equally devastating fastest lap of 1:48.005. As they ran each other down, Kelsey just edged by Howard for the win and both crossed the line over 11-seconds ahead of third place.

There was even more action on the Novice grids with 14-year-old Jay Newton taking seven podium finishes. The up-and-comer rode his Yamaha YZF-R6 to wins in Moto Liberty C Superstock Novice, Road & Track Suspension Formula 1 Novice, second place in Lone Star Track Days B Superstock Novice, House of Paint Designs C Superbike Novice, and third in North Texas Superbikes A Superbike Novice, OnRoad OffRoad Suspension A Superstock Novice, and North Texas Superbikes B Superbike Novice.

Nancy Selleck, CMRA Administrator, had this to add, "Round Three was challenging in part due to a combination of wind and water, but exciting nonetheless. Saturday is always special with our K&N Junior Motard race for 8-12 year olds, but the brand-new Team 60 race at the end of the day really kicked it up a notch. The 60-minute, two-rider format had the whole paddock buzzing with anticipation all day and the LeMans start was a real hoot to watch! Sunday brought some fantastic racing and while we didn’t set another all-time record for overall entries, we did set a record for Eagles Canyon Raceway…a very healthy 728. We have a very special club made all the more special by the support of our racers, sponsors, track vendors, crew, corner workers and staff. We truly appreciate each and every one of them. Can’t wait for the next round at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in May!"
