Army of Darkness wins the N2/WERA National Endurance Race at Carolina Motorsports Park. 

Media, PA (June 2023) – Army of Darkness wins the Overall and Heavyweight class on a Yamaha YZF-R1 at the 4-Hour N2/WERA National Endurance Race by Dunlop at Carolina Motorsports Park. Army of Darkness was joined on the overall podium by Middleweight class winners Alpha Omega on a Yamaha YZF-R6 and Lightweight class winners Robem Engineering on an Aprilia RS 660. This was the first time the overall podium was occupied by class winners from each of the main classes.

51 teams battled for a lucrative purse and championship bonuses at the 2-hour and 4-Hour N2/WERA National Endurance Race by Dunlop at Carolina Motorsports Park.

Cody Wyman started the race for Army of Darkness and battled with Nature Power Superbike’s Jason Waters for the first 35 minutes until Waters had to pit to exchange bikes with teammate Dan Kruger. Wyman was able to grind out extremely fast laps and put his Dunlop-shod YZF-R1 up by a lap after the first stop. The Army of Darkness had a flawless race and never relinquished the lead with riders Ben Walters and Hunter Dunham winning by three laps over Middleweight winners Alpha Omega and an astounding 40 laps over Heavyweight second place Team 199 Miles and 83 laps over Kustom Cockpits.

Although the Alpha Omega Team won the Middleweight class they had trouble during the first pit stop and almost gave the win away. Fantastic riding by Eziah Davis, Anthony Mazziotto, Emerson Amaya, and Steven Roth kept them in the lead. Second-place TopBox Racing and Trash Panda Racing both crashed into each other on the second restart putting both podium contenders in the dirt. Amazing work by both teams and fantastic riding by Tony Mcknight, Mark Faulkner, and Caleb Odom on TopBox and Chuck Ivey, Matt Burdett, Mark Pisano, and Sean Hopkins on Trash Panda kept them on the podium.

The Lightweight class was dominated by Robem Engineering on an Aprilia RS 660 with riders Gus Rodio and Alessandro Di Mario. Rodio broke the Lightweight track record with a time of 1:34.2 in his first stint and the team was never challenged, winning by six laps. Second place went to Chief’s Racing with riders Chris Parish and Brian Mullins. Third place went to RBoM Racing’s Giacomo Manera and Ryan Wolfe.

The Ultralight 2-Hour Endurance was won by 12-year-old Hank Vossberg who traveled all the way to South Carolina from Wisconsin. Vossberg did not have it all his way as he was involved in a race-long battle with Ryne Snooks and Logan Cunnison. The three riders battled tooth and nail coming together and crashing with 10 minutes left in the race. The race was red-flagged and the results went back a lap giving Vossberg the win with Ready to Ride’s Ryne Snooks in second and RTR Racing’s Logan Cunnison in third.

The Relay Class is an exhibition class run during the 4-Hour event and allows each rider to ride their own bike and only switch transponders at each exchange. This class allows riders and teams to try endurance racing without committing to building a bike and a team. The Relay Class was once again won by Nature Power Superbike with riders Jason Waters and Dan Kruger. RTR Hooligans finished second and A Proper Ding Dong finished third in Relay.
