The Final Round Of Press Releases From Last Weekend's Various Motorcycle Road Races

The Why We Ride - Minimoto USA Championship completed their fifth race of the 2014 series this past weekend at Shasta Kart Track in Redding, CA this past weekend.


In the Minimoto Beginner class, Mid-South Minimoto’s Bandit Landers from La Crescenta, CA took the win in the first and second Minimoto Beginner races with Lorenzo Gargenese coming in second place.


In all of the practice sessions prior to the races, Beverly Hills Ducati sponsored rider, Errol Sullivan showed some very impressive speed and it looked like he was going to run away from the grid in the races, but a highside in the first race on the first lap and a tip over in the back straight chicane worked against him.

Instead it was Bruce Racing's factory rider, Troy Bruce who stepped up, got even faster for his Sunday races and won both legs of Minimoto Junior on his IAME powered, PMT shod, DM machine.

The rider leading the Minimoto Junior championship, Texas Devil Racing’s Evan Alexander (Bay area) got second in both legs on his BZM powered GRC with Tide Mark's Emi Van Cleave rounding out the podium on her SG powered DM.

All of the kids in the Minimoto Junior class showed much improved speed this weekend of racing and all are acknowledged for improving very much.


In the Minimoto Pro race, Mid-South Minimoto sponsored racer Rocco Landers aboard his SG powered DM ran away with the win with Errol Sullivan taking second place.


In the Minimoto Unlimited race Jason Bruce and Kyle Brown got together at the start with Kyle Brown getting the raw end of the deal and crashing out. Jason cruised to an easy victory.


Jon Amico and Jason Bruce squared off in the Vet race and it was a great battle until Jason Bruce ran out of gas and Jon Amico wheelied to the win.


In the Mini GP Mod Pro race, Rocco Landers, riding his KTM 50 took the win over Paul Van Cleave, Emi Van cleave and Errol Sullivan who was borrowing an underpowered bike to get some points after his KTM had a mechanical before the race.
