IXCR ROUND 6 THE BADLANDS
ATTICA, INDIANA
7/22/2007

Once again the big man upstairs greeted us with picture perfect conditions. Although a rain storm may have been nice to calm the dust it was a b-e-a-utiful day! With lots in store for this race the workers started early Saturday morning laying out the track and getting ready for the big day. Yamaha was there and was kind enough to loan Weigold Photography a new Grizzly and the course workers a Rhino. We had 30 bikes for the morning race and they put on a good show. Chris Bach lead from wire to wire and proved he had what it takes to tame the badlands. Chris was awarded the Yamaha Holeshot award and also took home the Fatheadz.com $1000 check.

Between the bike and quad races Troy and the boys from the Badlands put on a great show in the side by side race. I must say those guys are crazy and the passengers are even crazier! I just can’t imagine launching one of those beasts into the air but they had no problem with hang time and even spending some time on their top sides! Great show guys!

For the quad race we had our largest turn out of the year with 136 racers. Everyone started heading down to line up in the massive sand bowl where the starts would take place. And right on time the flag dropped for the pro row. Todd Demaree pulled the holeshot and was awarded the Yamaha check. Todd came by me on my fourth lap and that boy was moving! He had big $$$$ floating above his helmet as he had a $1000 check from fatheadz.com waiting for him when crossed the finish line first. Nate Beyers had the lead for a while but found a tree that he didn’t like so he decided to cut it down with his quad and that cost him some time. Brent Howell took third and they all seemed to be enjoying the seven mile course. With this being a new location for the series there where several who did not know what to expect from the new terrain. The course had a nice mix of creek runnings, rock sections, mud holes, hills, and sand whoops and sand whoops and sand whoops and then some more sand whoops!!!! I heard a lot of the GNCC racers say it reminded them of the Florida race. With several new faces at this race I had trouble remembering everyone’s name so I’ll tell you what I do remember. Jeff Seelig continued his win streak, Jason Meek showed everyone he is alive and well and can still move on a quad! The Marshall brothers took 1st & 2nd in the Vet class. And Kyrie Brafford got seventh in the 16-25 class meaning she passed a lot of guys!

A big THANK YOU goes out to Jim “Corn” Cobb as he gave up his day of racing to help make this race happen. If you raced on Sunday then you saw Jim riding that Grizzly around retaping caution tape and helping downed racers. He is in a very tight point’s battle but gave up his chance to race to better our series!

The series takes a few weeks off and will visit the Lawrence County Recreational Park on August the 19th. We hope to see everyone again there!
