ASMA: Dickerman Wins Feature Race At Arroyo Seco

Dan Dickerman Victorious Again at Arroyo Seco Raceway

This past Sunday [October 10] at Arroyo Seco Raceway, located near Deming, New Mexico, twists and turns were aplenty, both literally and figuratively. Last round was held at Inde Motorsports Ranch in Wilcox, Arizona, and the Arroyo Seco Motorcycle Association (ASMA) is proud to add the sprawling 2.75-mile track to its race series.

Entering the penultimate round of contention, Dan Dickerman was looking to cut Corey Jones’ 13-point lead in the Formula Arroyo, ASMA’s feature race series sponsored by Evan Steel Performance. With the green flag raised, Dickerman and his Yamaha YZF-R1 stole the holeshot while Jones and his Kawasaki ZX-10R slotted into the two spot from his second row start. The top two left the rest of the pack behind and Dickerson pried open a slight gap with every lap. Before the white flag was waved, it appeared that Dickerson might overtake Jones for the top step in the standings when Jones went wide and off the track in the Carousel, but he kept his bike upright and squeezed in front of Thibault Few. Second position now in reach, Few pushed his Suzuki GSX-R1000 to close in on Jones on the back straight and threaten an overtake with late braking into the Carousel one last time, but Jones defended the inside line and saw the checkers second with Few only a bike length behind.

Jared Kapoor swept the lightweight categories last year and was on track for the repeat this year until a black cat must have pissed on his moto’s tire. During Saturday’s testing, his Kawasaki Ninja 400 suffered a blown engine and Kapoor had no other option but to drive 230 miles out to Tucson and back for another and later spend the wee hours swapping them. A few hours of sleep weren’t enough as fatigue got the best of Kapoor and sent him off track in three races, though he never did spill and suffer damage or injury and was able to turn his luck around with a win in the feature lightweight race, the Formula 500 sponsored by Law Tigers.

Kapoor had the holeshot but his lead was short-lived as second-in-the-series Justin Rutledge was keen to take advantage of Kapoor’s ailing form and passed him on the inside of the Horseshoe just seconds later. But this time it was Rutledge’s turn to suffer mechanical issues, specifically relating to his electric gear shifter, and Kapoor reclaimed the top spot at the exit of the Esses and held on for the win.

This season being his last, Kapoor hopes to seize the Formula 500 throne for the hattrick. After a major crash last March, he had to practically rebuild an entire bike, the wheels included, all but for the frame that required straightening. Physical injuries included ten broken vertebrae, as well as a broken neck and skull, both in three places. To say that all of this was hard on his family is an understatement, and Kapoor who began back in ’96 on middleweight machines and mixed it up in the nationals will put his Kawasaki out to pasture after next month’s final round.

The highlight reel for the amateur ranks will no doubt be focused on Qudymm Scarbrough as he and his YZF-R1 enjoyed a perfect day. His last win was back in 2016 just before shipping off for training with the U.S. Marines, and this time one wasn’t enough as he swept both unlimited series sponsored by Kurveygirl.com and New Mexico Orthopaedics, along with the premier Formula Amateur sponsored by Arizona Sportbike Development. Kudos were made to his family’s tremendous support, along with track owner and racer Roger Heemsbergen who assisted with suspension set up and tire choice.

The next and final round of racing is scheduled to take place November 6 and 7. A track day will be held Saturday, November 6, and racing Sunday, November 7. Signups and information can be found at the asmaracing.com website.
