Vince Smith lands back on top at Stoney Round #4

Round #4 of the 2017 Stoney Championship Hare scramble Series was held on Sunday August 6th at the club grounds. Given the uncertainty of Indiana summer weather, a trail was laid out that would be fit for either the mud or the possible dusty conditions. The forecasts called for rain most of the week, but to everyones surprise, not drop fell at the property - Dust it would be.

Twenty seven PeeWee racers rolled to the power line to start the day off with the first playing of the national anthem and some great racing. The green flag flew right on time and Jack Wilkerson took an early lead and led the pack through the home check at the end of the first lap. Doc Smith, however, was in hot pursuit and wasted no time capitalizing on a mistake by Wilkerson and assumed the lead. Smith would stay smooth and consistent throughout the race and cruised to another overall win. Wilkerson maintained his second place position with Max Perry having his best ride this year rounding out the top three. In the Injector class, Tegan Thompson put on a clinic as he quickly started interacting with some of the Pre-Mix racers from the front row. Thompson went on to take the win with Chase Wilkerson and Deegan Caplinger rounding out the podium.

The Mini racers were presented with a flowing trail the was sure to provide great racing. Robert Thomas led the pack through the first lap with Garrett Mundy right on his rear tire. The winner of the first three rounds, Kenton Coleman, was significantly off pace due to an injury, but he stayed consistent and focused on salvaging precious points. It was obvious that the racers were getting around the course with minimal issues as we saw the 85cc riders come in with an overall lead on time adjusted scoring. At the end of the second lap, Jack Joy (85cc), was physically in the lead and looking like it would be a run-away. Meanwhile, Mundy and Thomas were wheel to wheel until late in the race where Mundy was able to break away and look to chase down Joy. By the end of the race, Mundy had regained the physical lead, but was unable to get back the lost time and ended up 1st in class, but second overall. Back in the 85cc class, we were seeing an intense battle for the second place position between Alec Sadler and Lane Smith with back and forth racing the entire time. In the end, Sadler was able to hold off Smith by a mere 0:04 seconds. Grayson Fischer rode a flawless race and took the 65cc class victory.

The adult course ended up at 5.2 miles while avoiding most challenging hills and deep ravines in the case of rain. In addition, the use of older trails helped keep the dust to a minimum. We saw a stacked AA class with eight riders looking to cash in. The green flag flew at high noon and Vince Smith shot into the woods looking to find clean air. The excitement started to rise as we heard the roar of the bikes approaching the home check, clearly indicating there was a large group coming all together. Eric Douglass was leading the pack, followed by Jake Fiddler, Vince Smith and Sam Mattingly all separated by 0:04 seconds. fifteen seconds later, we had several more riders stacked from to back coming through. As the other classes were completing their first lap, we were seeing a pattern. A pattern of many riders only separated by 1 second in several groups. We were all starting to realize we were in for a great show. By the 4th of 8 laps, Douglass, Fiddler ad Smith had broke away and were freight training around the course going through each woods check and home check within a second apart. As the 2 lap board came out, Douglass and Smith kicked it into another gear and were able to break away from Fiddler, who just had nothing to offer. At the white flag, we saw Smith had taken the lead and that was all the encouragement he needed to make that lat lap push and taking the overall over Douglass by 0:18 seconds. Fiddler closed out the podium coming in 0:39 later.

Chris Douglas tops the box at Stoney's Round #3




Round #3 of the 2017 Stoney Championship Hare scramble Series was held on Sunday June 25th at the club grounds. Years ago, one of the seasoned club members once said "All June races are Mud Fests", and he had been proven right for the last 8 years or so. This years seems to be changing the theory as the 2nd round (June 11th) was quite dusty and this 3rd round was near perfect conditions, even with heavy rains on Friday.

As we have seen for the first two rounds, Doc Smith once again charged to the lead of the PeeWee race and set a blistering pace that would prove to be a challenge for anyone to consider matching. As we see with almost every race, an exciting battle develops and captures other attention. In todays event, Garrett Ferguson and Madilyn Nelson were is a back and forth, wheel to wheel race for third place. It was exciting watching each youngster navigate through lapped riders and finding opportunities to take and advantage. Unfortunately for Nelson, her bike suffered a race ending failure in which she had to push the quiet machine through the trails and across the finish line allowing Ferguson to take the third place spot, just behind Jack Wilkerson.

The Youth Mini riders lined up for the second event of the day which was scheduled to last for one hour and cover a 2.2 mile course winding through the north eastern end of the property. Kenton Coleman shot out to an early lead and was able to slowly extend it through the race. Garrett Mundy challenged early on, but settled into his own pace as he was riding a borrowed bike. Mundy had a creek crossing issue the previous day which rendered his bike useless for Sunday's event. That is the great thing about this sport as people are always willing to lend a helping hand to another rider. In the 85CC class, Jackson Fischer and Alec Sadler were the two to watch as they were looking for that coveted win. Fischer put his head down and started to gap Sadler and soon, set his sights on the Super Mini riders that started a minute ahead. In the end, Fischer would prove simply too much for Sadler to challenge late in the race. In the 65CC class, Van Adams was back to his true form as he simply walked away with the class win. Grayson Fischer had big plans for taking the win, but a few mistakes early on in the race proved to be too much to overcome.

The adult race course was mapped out to be 55 miles with a very unique layout which criss crossed back and forth throughout the property. Many riders were expecting very slick and muddy conditions given the heavy rains Indiana had experienced on Friday, but they were pleasantly surprised with near perfect track conditions. The property had seen less than an inch of rain while the rest of Indiana received several inches. This track flowed well, was very tight and technical with several very slick spot surprises that caught many off guard. Vince Smith grabbed the early hole shot, but soon realized the difficulty he would have pushing that pace when his rear brakes failed. That opened the door for Sam Mattingly, Jake Fiddler and Chris Douglas to set the scene for the race to the overall podium. Not only was it quite exciting see the wheel to wheel racing not only in the front AA row, we saw this level of action in almost every class on the track. About mid-way through the race, Douglas was able to find his way around Fiddler and Mattingly and start to develop a comfortable gap. This allowed Douglas to cruise to the overall win with Fiddler and Mattingly rounding out the overall.

Vince Smith Takes his second in a row at Round #2




The 2nd round of the 2017 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series was held June 11th after a need to reschedule due to a National Event schedule change. Dry weather leading up to the weekend event would become a factor in the course layout as plans for dust and reduced speeds would be a main factor. Fortunately, we had a nice breeze to help with both the heat and the dust.

Twenty Five PeeWee racers started the days events with the National Anthem, the ten second call and thirty minutes of intense racing through the tight woods trail th club provides. As we saw in the first round, Doc Smith wasted no time charging out to a first lap lead. Smith would ride a smooth and consistent race with a comfortable margin back to his nearest competitor, last years PeeWee Champion, Jack Wilkerson. Tucker McCrary finished out the top three with Max Perry a mere 0:19 seconds back in fourth. In the Injector class, Chase Wilkerson stood out as the rider to beat as he cruised to the class win and topped the podium.

Keeping a similar plan as the first round, the track crew set up the Youth Mini race track a little on the shorter side of length allowing the parents more opportunities to enjoy the racing and the completion. The track strategy involved the racers navigating through untamed areas and older sections that have not been used for several years. The fresh ground cover helped to keep the dust down, but required more discipline in following arrows. Kenton Coleman and Garrett Mundy were once again locked in a tight battle for the Super mini class as well as the Youth overall. Unfortunately for Mundy, he found himself in a position of riding in Coleman's dust trace as he was unable to make a pass and ride in clean air. Coleman eventually took the win with Mundy a close second followed by Cody Eby who rounded out the class podium. In the 85CC class, the front runners, all following each other, followed the lead rider right off the course and into an area of no trail and no arrows. It did not take long to realize and get themselves corrected, but it did allow for some of the top 65CC riders to get around early on in the race. Elijah Sullivan lead the group at the end of the first lap, but Jackson Fischer and Alec Sadler soon got around and separated from the pack. Fischer would go on to take the class win followed by Sadler and Sullivan. In the 65CC class, Van Adams and Grayson Fischer were charging hard with Gavin Pederson looking to be in the mix. Adams had the lead early on, but gave way to Fischer on the fourth lap. A late race crash by Adams secured the win for Fischer.

The adult race course was right at 5.5 miles consisting of rolling up and down trail with strategically placed challenges throughout. As was done with the Youth Mini track, several new areas were utilized following extensive chain saw work by the Stoney crew. We saw 9 AA riders line up looking for the top spot and bragging rights for the day. Vince Smith took the early lead and was looking to take advantage of no dust and put some early race pressure of the group behind him. Given the new sections and the need to closely watch arrows, it wasn't long before the group had tightened up and were battling for positions. At the end of the first lap, Smith had opened his lead back up over 2nd place Jake Fiddler, followed closely behind by Preston Weiler and Anthony Wagler. Smith gave way to Fiddler as the race progressed, but finally managed to get back around later in the race. We saw the top five overall change quite a bit through the race as riders would drop out due to tire issues by two top contenders. In the end, Smith was able to hold off Fiddler for the win and last year Overall Champion, John Maschino, rounded out the top three overall.

Vince Smith Takes a close fought overall at Round #1




The 2017 Stoney Lonesome Championship Harescramble Series kicked of on a beautiful Spring day in April. Weather forecasts had been calling for significant rain all week long with heavy chances the day before the event. Fortunately, the rain stayed south of the property which provided for great racing conditions for all involved. The great weather and opening round of the series brought a large crowd spectators and near record number of racers looking for a chance to take an early points lead for the year.

The PeeWee racers lined up this race out on the famous powerline opening with a long sweeping corner leading them into the tight single track woods. With 24 entries, a good start would be critical for the early positioning and advantage. Doc Smith wasted no time charging to the front and setting a pace that other would struggle to maintain. Last year's champion, Jack Wilkerson, was giving it his all in an attempt to take the lead and the win. Smith, however, rode a flawless and smooth race which allowed him to take an early points lead in his attempt to win the championship. Tucker McCrary rounded out the podium position for the Overall.

The Youth Mini race track was set up a little on the shorter side of length in anticipation of the rain. The club wanted to make sure the youth riders all had a chance of enjoying the trails and competition in the event is was very muddy. The great conditions and the track layout provided for some extremely exciting racing for the racers as well as those watching. Kayden Hardin, Kenton Coleman and Garrett Mundy were all locked in a tight race for the overall early on in the race. Coleman and Hardin started to break away from Mundy, but were locked wheel to wheel in the mid stretch of the hour long race. Coleman eventually took the lead and maintained it for the Supermini and Overall win with Hardin only edging Mundy by 0:25 seconds. In the 85cc class, Jackson Fischer and Alec Sadler where clearly in a heated battle with neither rider giving way. Fischer would eventually pull away and stay on the lead lap with the flying supermini's and take the class win. In the 65cc class, Grayson Fischer appeared to be in a different league and looked as if he really enjoyed the trail. Tucker Chitwood road a smooth race and landed in the second place position followed by Elliot Porter.

The adult race course was just under 5 miles and was laid out with the same thought as was used on the Youth track. Make sure everyone can get around if the rains come and prevent all opportunities for bottlenecks. With one of the larger rider entry counts and a short track, fast and furious action was guaranteed. The seven AA class racers headed into the woods at a blistering pace with last years overall champion, John Maschino, eating the most roost. At the end of the opening lap, it became obvious that we were in for a full day of intense battling and positioning. Colton Wilkes was leading the pack of the top four which were separated by 11 seconds. As the race progressed, it was anybodies guess who would be leading as they came into the home check. With Wilkes, Vincent Smith, Anthony Wagler and David Quillen still only seconds apart just after the midway point, fuel strategies would start to play a role. Smith, battling for the lead, had to stop and lose precious time knowing he would have lapped traffic to work through in catching back to the pack. It appeared that was not a problem as the pack once again came barreling through. Wilkes would suffer a mechanical issue that set him back in the pack and take him out of contention. In the end, Smith was able to reach the finish line first with Wagler right on his back wheel and Quillen rounding out the top three overall.

Due to an increase in interest, Stoney Lonesome Added a Womens class for this year and we would like to congratulate Sarah Redel for taking the win at the opening round.
