Stoney Lonesome MC Third Round a Big Success
The third round of five for the 2014 Stoney Lonesome Harescramble Series was held on the club property near Columbus Indiana. The weather forecasts were calling for weekend rain all week, but it never materialized and not a drop fell on the property all week. This created sections of dusty powder, areas of berm build up and late race choppy acceleration and braking bumps. The PeeWee racers kicked off the day at 9:00 a for a thirty minute race taking almost four minutes a lap. Drew Wilkerson pushed hard to take the PeeWee Premix class victory, but fell just short of taking the overall. Van Adams closed the gap early in the race from the second row, fell back due to a few crashes, but recovered well and charge back to take the overall on adjusted time.
The youth bikes hit the two mile trail next with three rows blazing into the rugged Stoney terrain. Dawson Zimmer looked like he was on a mission early, but unknown to him, Chase Terry was burning up the trail and closing the gap from the second row. Later in the race, Terry took the physical lead of the race and held on for the overall win. Landon Lamaster and Lance Maschino rounded out the youth overall top three, all from the 85CC class.
The Adult bikes had a good showing with 129 racers lining up ready to attack the infamous Coxy's hill and the driveway dip. The 5.7 mile course took the riders throughout the entire property including a climb up Coxy's hill, fast flowing trails and a few surprise mud holes thrown in here and there. Jeff Cregg fired his KTM300 and hit the woods first followed by an impressive AA pack. Chris Bach was able to make a pass when Cregg encountered the first mud hole just past the four mile mark. Bach and Cregg settled into the first and second place positions for the remainder of the race. The battle for third was quite exciting and Jake Fiddler and John Maschino hooked up and hammered through the trails. Maschino was able to outlast Fiddler and land himself on the podium after a tough two hour race on a classic Stoney course.
Unfortunately, a minor network glitch prevented the live readouts showing rider placements for the participants and spectators, but the scoring crew put all priority in maintaining the integrity of the data to ensure accurate and fair results.
Stoney Lonesome would like to thank the spectators, all the riders that participated in this event and would like to Thank our Dedicated Sponsors for their support of the 2014 Stoney Lonesome Series !!

MAXC/Stoney Lonesome MC Co-Sanctioned Riley Race a Success
The second round of the 2014 Stoney Lonesome Harescramble Series was held at the Lawrence County Recreation Park as a Co-Sanctioned event with MAXC. Saturdays activities included trail rides, obstacle courses and a mud bog. The ward and dry weather helped bring a large crowd of participants, but made for a long day for the water truck driver.
Sundays race day brought very different conditions. The weather changed overnight and the rain began about midnight creating some very slick and greasy conditions on the course. The day started off with the Youth Mini racers getting the pleasure of the slickest conditions. Jared Polley rode hard and charge to take a commanding overall win followed by Langdon Feltner and Lance Maschino rounding out the top three. The PeeWee racers followed the Mini quad event with Van Adams winning his second consecutive PeeWee Injector race.
The Adult bikes had a good showing with over 200 racers lining up on the starting lines. The race event followed the MAXC starting rows which resulted in a standard Stoney Lonesome class being divided into several rows. This was sure to present some challenges for those racers shooting for a Stoney class win. With a seven mile course and continued slick conditions, the AA class was running at 20 minutes a lap resulting in a 5 lap race. Teddy Mullins took an early and commanding lead and was never challenged by the AA field. Duel Murphy had a rough first lap, but charged hard on the white flag and caught second place Jeff Cregg only to bend his sprocket and break a chain guide ending his day. In the end, Mullins took the win followed by Cregg and Lucas Statom.

Opening round of the 2014 Stoney Lonesome MC Series
The first round of the 2014 Stoney Lonesome Harescramble Series was held at the Club property just west of Columbus Indiana on Sunday June 1st. With a weather forecast calling for rain all week leading up to the event, the Trail Boss and crew prepared the course expecting a mud-fest. Fortunately, the rain never came, and the concerns quickly switched to potential issues with dust. Fortunately, there was enough moisture in the ground that the trails in the woods were perfect, but sections of the open areas did have dust. The PeeWee race was staged and left the line at 9:00 am to kick off the 2014 series. Drew Wilkerson and Gabe Day were setting the pace early on in the Pre-Mixed class and Van Adams was running away in the Injector class. By the end of the third lap, it was clear that Adams was contending for the overall from the second row. Adams eventually made it past the two front runners and started checking out. In the end, Adams landed the overall for the PeeWee race with Wilkerson and Day following close behind.
In the Youth Mini race, Langdon Feltner powered his Honda 150 into the early lead and found himself running all alone out front for the entire hour. behind Feltner, a battle for the 85CC class was as close as they get. Lance Maschino and Chase Terry were putting on a show as they ran wheel to wheel swapping the lead. Going into the white flag lap, Terry had the lead, but Maschino was not giving up. The intensity of their race pushed both riders to the point that they were able to take over the top two spots in the overall by time adjusted with Maschino landing his first Youth Overall at Stoney Lonesome. Garrett Mundy also rode a flawless race landing the 65CC class win.
The Adult race was scheduled to take off at 12:00 with 112 riders lined up in their appropriate rows. With the riders meeting completed, the pre-race prayer finished, the ten second call was given and the race started at 12:00 sharp. Jeff Cregg took an early lead and was able to cruise to an overall victory winning by a five minute margin. Behind Cregg, the racing was very intense. The Open A riders of Eric Douglass, Vince Smith, Dillon Ramey and Anthony Wagler were not going to make it easy for each other. With the race length being extended to two hours, endurance and strategy were clearly going to play a roll. As the race ran on, Smith finally took the lead and was able to hold off Douglass to take the Open A win and the second place Overall with Douglass getting 2nd in Open A and 3rd Overall.
Once again, Stoney Lonesome would like to thank all the riders that participated in this event and would like to Thank our Dedicated Sponsors for their support of the 2014 Stoney Lonesome Series !!
