Burson Impresses with Prospector Win!
Sharon Mowell Tops the Women’s Podium
March 21, 2017: With the Southern California weather heating up, round three of the AMA West Hare Scrambles in Gorman at the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) and Quail Canyon MX Park provided ideal racing weather. The Prospectors Motorcycle Club of historic District 37 once again hosted a top notch event, ensuring a smooth race weekend to complement the fast paced racing that took place.
In preparing the course, the Prospectors were sure that the Youth Mini and Quad course would enjoy a smooth yet fun 6-mile loop. Bright and early Saturday morning, the Pee Wee 50cc class kicked off with an overall win from Nick Vasquez after a nice battle with 2nd place Waylon Honnold, while Damian Padron rounded off the podium.
The Big Wheel race saw a not at all surprising overall win from Mason Matthies. Meanwhile, Cody Kurtz and Bradley East battled all race long for 2nd and 3rd overall. This race was definitely action packed, and once again proved to be the perfect learning grounds for the future of off-road Hare Scrambles champions.
The main feature of the day would see the Pro, Pro 250 and Experts, with classes full of commendable competition. In the Pro 250 class, Cole Canatser left the weekend with 1st in class, with Jordan Gamboa only a few minutes behind in 2nd. And to fill the final podium spot, JT Baker took home 3rd in class behind Gamboa.
