This past Sunday, the SteelCityRiders raced at GopherDunes .
These races are a little different for me; my family races at this club.I have a brother-in-law, two nieces and a nephew that race so I tend to watch more than take pictures.
SCR is not as big as some clubs, which creates a small family atmosphere between riders and families.
I try to help out as much as I can with pictures and flagging when needed.
One thing different about this club is a member must do a work day sometime through the MX season, which could include flagging or working the start gate.
Friends and family usually help if a rider misses a round or two and need to race that day.
I only got to see the first motos because I had to work later.
The 65cc class had a cool race with three riders fighting for first and at one point the first place rider, Zackery Ethridge, looped out and fell to third only to come back on the last lap to win.
The Vet Master class had a good battle between Jamie McCollum and Jason McAlpine. The two were racing hard when Jamie washed out in a corner on the last lap and took Jason down with him.
Jason got first on his KTM and beat Jamie to the finish.
The Pro division had a fast group with Pete Venczel, the #1 guy being chased by a handfull of fast riders.
One of the funny things that happened that didn't looked funny was Dakota Beamer on the ground in pain.
It turned out he might have landed the big table without his foot on the pegs and might be singing soprano the rest of the week lol.
SCR next race is at Grand Bend Motorplex this weekend.
