SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Colton Haaker won round three of the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship inside the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. The Rockstar, Lucas Oil JCR Honda rider dominated the day by setting the fastest hot lap, winning his heat race and then passing Beta USA’s Cody Webb to take the main event win.
PRAIRIE CITY SVRA, CA: Thousands of fans weathered the triple digit heat last weekend at the MetalCloak Stampede to watch one of the most exciting ULTRA4 races to date. The main event saw two former and the current King of The Hammers each take a turn at leading throughout the 45 minute race. That is until the final lap, when Tom Wayes worked his way from a rear start to claim the checkered flag, and his first ULTRA4 win.
Wayes had the fastest qualifying lap on Friday morning, however after suffering mechanical issues, he was unable to race in Friday afternoon’s prelim races. The top 3 drivers from prelims moved directly to the main event on Saturday afternoon. Nitto Tire driver Loren Healy won the fastest prelim heat which put him on the pole for the main event with Shannon Campbell starting beside him.

IRVINE, Calif. –Round one of the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship went down in Las Vegas as one of the most exciting races in EnduroCross history. Beta USA’s Cody Webb took the win by riding a nearly flawless race—narrowly missing the on-track carnage and cleanly lapping the challenging course lap-after-lap.
This was the first time the WORCS series had ventured out to the Ridgecrest fairgrounds, but having raced there a few times in the past I had a slight suspicion that the course was going to be fast and full of chop. The track definitely lived up to my impression winding through the surrounding flat, desert terrain providing wide open straightaways and fast, flowing corners, linked together by the motocross course, the bull ring/Endurocross section and some technical piles of a mixture of dirt and asphalt. With the pro race being held at one o’clock on Sunday afternoon, the corners would be well burned in, the chop would be at its sharpest, and the desert winds would be howling; it was very much going to be a hold on and click the gears kind of race.

This weekend I headed out to Nevada for the Best In The Desert Silver State 300. Arguably one of the most enjoyable races on the BITD calendar, the Silver State course winds its way through scenic mountain roads and twisty sand washes of northern Nevada. There’re little whoops to speak of, a few rockier sections, but for the most part the terrain is comprised of high-speed, graded, twisty roads, something everyone enjoys.
With this weekend being one of the busiest of the west coast calendar- there was the Silver State 300, the National Hare & Hound, Endurocross, the Primm Big 6 (and Supercross if you’re in to that kind of thing)- I was going to be riding the race solo. My teammate Ricky Brabec has been excelling at the Hare & Hounds, with a shot at the championship, and since he is the rider of record, his absence mean only one rider can fill in for him.
