Bostwick, FL         September 15, 2013


Florida Moto News was out at Bostwick Creek Mx Park for the first round of the FL/GA EverRev Fall Classic. This year's event also hosted a Florida Trail Riders motocross race, whose racers lined up at the gate alongside the FGSC motocross racers to compete. Racers could sign up to be counted for points in one or both series, while also having the opportunity to gage their speed against some new competetion. Weather conditions were beautiful, warm, and sunny for the weekend's event. The Bostwick track was groomed to perfection to start off the racing in the Fall series smoothly, but certainly showed riders some challenging race conditions by the day's end.

Riders and spectators were treated to quite an entertaining show by Bo Partin (HON #X) and Johnny Wasco (KAW #379), who battled each other hard in the Mx A and Open $ classes, while staying ahead of the other riders. Wasco was victorious in the first moto of the Open $ class, but a DNF in moto 2 handed the win to Partin. Partin was also the winner in the Mx A class, where he won both motos.

The 65 classes provided some exceptional competition despite riders battling some rough track conditions for their second motos. Kawasaki #155 rider Rowdy Houston went home with the win in the 65 10-11 class, after finishing each moto ahead of the KTM #121 of Jessica Jeffery. In the 65 7-9 class, Donny Smallwood rode his #151 KTM hard and finished first both motos, taking the win! The 65 Open winner was Jared Cannon (KTM #171), and the 65 Beg. win went to KTM #421 rider David Cruce with 1-1 finishes.

In the 105-250cc 12-15 class, Beck's Tech Racing teammates Dawson Stark and Tristan Lane produced a lot of exciting racing as they battled for the win. Both riders rode focused and smooth, but Stark dug deep and got the win. Lane went on to be the victor in the Lites B and Open Am No A classes later in the day. FLMN spoke with Team Beck's Tech Racing (Team BTR) owner Jason Beck, who was quite pleased with both riders' performances.

"It's great to have such talented riders on my team and pushing each other's skills. Team BTR has been blessed with many talented riders, and I am looking forward to seeing each one of them advance in the sport, and helping them accomplish their goals." -Jason Beck

The always competitive C classes were again quite a show to watch. The Lites C class started it's first motos with 25 riders on the gate, but before the day was done, nearly half the field had at least one DNF. This included Team BTR rider Hunter Hawkins, who pulled the holeshot and ran away with the win in the first moto, but DNF'd the second, ending up eleventh at the end of the day. The Lites C win went to yet another successful Beck's Tech Racing rider, Rusty Heggan Jr., who went 4-1 for first overall. Rusty also competed in the Mx C class, where he finished just off the podium in fourth place. The racing in the Mx C class was equally exciting, with #777 Honda rider Mason Middlebrook showing how it's done and taking the win with 1-1 finishes! BAM Racing's Chase Krech (HON #28) and Team BTR's Danny Diciaccio (YAM #515) finished second and third respectively.
