The inaugural 2007 Indiana XC Racing officially came to an end with the year end banquet this weekend. Around 160 racers and spouses were on hand to receive various awards and prizes. National Guard sponsored GNCC pro William Yokley was in attendance to show his support for the series. William also spoke to the crowd about racing, sponsors and his thoughts on the series. William ended by taking a few questions from the crowd with one getting a cheer from the crowd when he confirmed he would be on a non factory supported Honda this year. After a brief introduction of the IXCR staff the door prizes and awards started to be handed out. Youth riders were up first with two standout racers, Matthew Harris and Derrik Allen taking top honors in their classes along with receiving “rising star” awards. Bike awards were up next with Vet bike class racer Jeff Mote taking the overall #1 plate just head of Bruce Stapleton and Austin Witt. Before quad awards were handed out a variety of awards were given including the “Hard luck” award given to Jeff Rawlings for his “never give up” attitude even after only finishing a few races of the entire schedule. Racers Choice awards were voted on by racers in attendance and went to Todd Demaree for quads and Derrik Allen for bikes. With quads having the most in attendance the awards took a little longer to present. Standouts were Todd Demaree winning the tight Pro class battle along with edging out Nate Beyers for the overall.
