Our riders battled to the very end with their ITP tires and we’re proud of all their efforts and the titles,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support. “Our racers had a bit of bad luck at the WORCS event in California, but we still came away with a couple podium finishes, including John Pacheco’s third-place run in the challenging SxS Pro Production class.”

AMA-Amateur-Nationals-8-1-13HURRICANE MILLS, Tenn. – Wednesday’s weather conditions added a slight turn of events for day two of racing from the 2013 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by AMSOIL. Heavy rainfall filled the grounds overnight at the Loretta Lynn Ranch but it wasn’t enough to stop the first few of the day’s scheduled motos. However, the in-climate weather continued through the first three motos, where the racing was eventually brought to a halt by 9 a.m. in order to allow the storm to pass.

All hands were on deck as the track crew worked tirelessly to provide optimum track conditions for the racers. The moto order resumed at 3 p.m. with a modified racetrack as the Senior (40+) division kicked off the second half of the day.

The first moto of the morning was the Two-Stroke B/C (16+) and despite the muddy track conditions, underdog Jerry Robin (85) took the Moto 1 win on a borrowed 2007 CR 250 after his 1985 CR 250 broke down during practice. Robin then raced his ’85 in the 250 B class where he captured an impressive ninth place on his vintage machine.

Additionally, the rest of the top 10 finishers in the class earned their 250SX Class endorsement, making them eligible for competition for the 2014 season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.

Another class with a lot on the line was the Supermini Junior (9-15), which was won on Sunday afternoon by Texas rider Justin Cooper aboard a Yamaha. In addition to national titleholder Cooper, the remaining two podium finishers, Hunter Budd and Wesley Banks, punched their ticket to October’s Monster Energy Cup, for its Supermini competition on Saturday, October 20, from Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium.

A total of 540 riders took a chance at victory at ANAC in 2013, featuring one of the most talented fields of competitors in history. Following a full slate of Main Events, a total of 19 different riders earned championships, 18 of which were crowned AMA National Champions. Cooper had the most successful weekend, taking home a total of four national titles, while his younger brother, Reed, also earned a pair of championships.

Between the three, there are combined 13 Monster Energy Supercross and AMSOIL Arenacross titles that have been won.
