Chris Douglas Dominates Round #2 at Saddleback




Stoney Lonesome MC and Saddleback MC have a long history dating back to some of the original introduction of transponder scoring. In an effort to renew and strengthen the relationship, the two clubs decided to host a Stoney Lonesome race on the hilly and very rocky land near Bedford Kentucky. Mother Nature once again played a significant role in the track conditions with quite a bit of rain leading up to the Saturday event.

The PeeWee racers were presented with a rather short track simply due to the rugged terrain, but were given more grass track course than they are used to racing at Stoney Lonesome. With all the rain, the woods can be described as nothing short of greasy and slick. Grayson Fischer had the early lead in the race, but Van Adams eventually made the pass and held on for a tough win. Many of the little racers struggled with the build up of mud and grass which bogged and overheated the 50cc machines.

The Youth Mini riders faced a tough track which included several challenging off-camber maneuvers, a rocky creek bed and a tough and rock covered hill climb leading up to the grass track. Lance Maschino was once again on fire leading the race in commanding fashion. Colton Beavers held on for a tough earned second in the Super Mini class. Garrett Mundy and Coleman had another tight race similar to what we saw during round #1. Coleman had the lead at the white flag, but Mundy was able to make the pass on the last lap and tie the series points with a win. Jackson Fischer was showing quite a bit of style on the grass track jumps and took the win in the 65cc class.

For the Adult race, the track crews worked all morning re-routing a lot of the challenging hills in an attempt to make sure it was passable and doable by all involved. This resulted in over a two mile creek bottom run leading to several steep up and down hill sections. Unfortunately, reports were coming in during the race of several riders struggling on a couple of the hills. The track crews worked very hard in trying to help and re-direct racers to more passable areas throughout the race.
Chris Douglas took the early lead with Jeff Cregg and Vince Smith following close behind. The riders were getting spaced out by the end of the second lap with some of the Open A riders and even local Senior riders making their way up in the overall standings.
In the AA class, Douglas held on for an impressive win, with Cregg taking second and John Maschino rounding out the top 3.

For the Overall, Josh Keys physically worked his way into the 2nd place position passing both Cregg and Maschino as they fell victim to lapped riders and challenging hill climbs. Cregg held on for the 3rd place in the overall standings. In the end it was a great experince rekindling the Stoney/Saddleback relationship and providing riders exposure to the beautiful Saddleback property

2015 Series opener comes down to the last corner




The opening round of the 2015 Stoney Lonesome MC Series was held on Sunday May 31st on the club property near Columbus Indiana. The club members worked all week preparing the property and the modified starting area with the forecast of rain in mind. The property was actually starting to dry out nicely, but mother nature changed all of that with heavy downpours Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

The PeeWee racers felt the brunt of that rain with extremely slick and slimy conditions. Van Adams and Grayson Fischer di not seem to mind as they ripped away from the pack and proceeded to have a great battle. Adams eventually pulled away and held on for the overall win.

The Youth Mini riders faced a 2.4 mile course weaving through the high ground portions of the property. Unfortunately, the high grounds remained slick and challenging. Landon LaMaster struck first leading the first lap, followed closely by Lance Maschino and Ethan Sowder. As the race hit the mid way point and beyond, it was apparent that Maschino was completely in tune with the bike and the track as he gapped the field and won in an impressive fashion followed by LaMaster and Sowder.

In the afternoon adult bike race, 121 different riders headed into the newly created start chicane all fighting for a holeshot. In their respective class.
Jeff Cregg lead the first lap turning a 18:18 lap time. With Vince Smith abd Eric Douglass right on his rear tire. The top five was rounded out by Nathan Sullivan and John Maschino.
The conditions were clearly tough considering we only had 53 of the 121 complete 3 laps of the 5 lap event.
John Maschino assumed the lead on the third lap after Jeff Cregg experienced a significant crash and fell almost two minutes back. Nathan Sullivan and Eric Douglass rounded out the top three.
John Maschino maintained the lead and received the white flag at the end of the 4th lap with Eric Douglass and Sullivan battling for 2nd place.

During the final lap, Maschino, feeling slightly worn out, allowed Sullivan and Douglass to close the gap. It was an exciting wheel to wheel finish at the checker with Maschino edging Sullivan by a mere 1 second. Douglass, David (DQ) Quillen and Vince Smith rounded out the top five.

In the end it was a great race with only 2 different leaders, but it was John Maschino taking the win, able to hold off Sullivan, proving to be a just a bit stronger, and a bit faster - with an average speed of 16.57 MPH.
