The Kenda/SRT AMA West Hare Scramble Championship Series presented by MOJO Motosport headed to Quail Canyon MX for the Gorman Hare Scramble hosted by Prospectors MC. The weather could not have been better, with nearly 70 degree temperatures and the sun shining for our racers all weekend – contrary to the previous year. Prospectors MC and the NHHA made sure the racers enjoyed the weekend just as much we did.
The PeeWee class was the first of the racers to take off of the start line Saturday morning per usual. Coming off of the first lap in the lead, Ayden Berry started off his race in the lead.

Shade and Passno battled it out for 2nd OA, Shade taking the lead of this battle, finishing in 2nd OA with Passno in 3rd. The Pee Wee podium saw a win from Ayden Berry with Levi Shade in 2nd and Ian Passno in 3rd.
The next race of the day saw the Micro Mini and Girls classes. The first to take off on the start line was Allison Hall, racing solo in the Girls class. Hall held the leading position up until lap 3 when Lowe Lord gained an 11 second lead on her. Hall wasn’t going to give up her lead easy, though. She stole back her lead on lap 5 and remained in that position to take home the overall win. For the Micro Mini class, Lowe Lord battled out for the lead with Waylon Honnold who led in class until lap 3 when Lord stole the lead in class for the remainder of the race.
