Reddick, FL         April 17, 2016


The 2016 FL/GA Spring Championship & Florida Series Combined races made their latest stop at Motocross of Marion County (Reddick). The combined races again brought in a large number of motocross racers, eager to get on the gate with lots of fast competition. The Reddick track was a picturesque scene, with great moto battles occuring all over the track. Some riders choosing to make a daring high speed pass along the treeline, and others deciding to carefully plot a great corner pass. Then there were the high-flying passes, with riders jumping past each other over the spectator-wowing Reddick jumps.

The 65cc 6-9 and 65cc 6-11 classes saw a field of talented and fast competitors. All these young riders charged hard, showing both speed and style, but it would be Moon Gerrits (KTM #495) who would grasp the win in both classes. Young Emile Lacher (KTM #55) showed his talent, riding very well and taking the win in both the 50cc 4-9 and 50cc 7-9 classes. Gage Gongas (KTM #546) came away with the win in both the 85cc 12-14 and 85 JR Mini 9-13 classes. Spectators seemed to greatly enjoy watching these talented young racers battle it out on the track.

The VET C/NOVICE class has been one of the largest classes at each round so far, and this round was more of the same. Gated alongside the Plus 30 class, the field of 23 racers made for some great racing. Nate Ingram (KTM #50) took the win in the VET C/NOVICE class, giving him his third consecutive win in the class. Ingram is certainly on his way to a championship win in 2016. Joel Gregor (KTM #341) was the winner in the Plus 30 class. Lee Tatham got the holeshot in the Plus 35 class, riding with a commanding lead to the checkers, and taking the win with 1-1 moto scores. In the Plus 45 class, Steve Dumond (KAW #211) showed his speed and skill, taking the win both motos. Dylan Greer (YAM #777) was the winner in the 250B, 450B, and Open Am No A classes, winning every moto.

After three rounds of racing, riders now have a pretty good idea of the competition they will be up against in the battle for the championship wins. The combined series racing gives riders the chance to possibly be champion in TWO series for the price of one, and certainly has everyone trying their best. The combined races head next to WW Ranch Mx on May 1, 2016. The WW Ranch track is a favorite of many, and no doubt will draw huge numbers of racers and spectators. Be sure to make your way to the beautiful WW Ranch to enjoy a great day of motocross racing. FLMN will be there to report on all the racing action!
