Duncansville, PA --The American Suzuki ATV Regional championship series was forced to make a mid season track change for Round #3, the owners at R&D Raceway welcome racers with open arms. While it seems the weather man is never right, his rain forecasts for the first three rounds have been right on. A storm system rolling through Saturday morning forced the track crew to cancel practice, but did not take the day off. The crew immediately began to scrap the track, to prepare the best possible track for Sundays racing.

The R&D Raceway stretches just over a mile long and features everything from triples to hill climbs. An uphill start dropped riders into a short series of elevation changes. Following a series of jumps, riders began their assent up the large hill climb. A left hand hair pin turn sent riders right back down the hill. When sun rose Sunday morning and riders began rolling in, as did the rain. Although short lived, the track became soaked creating conditions similar to round #1 at Doublin Gap.

Despite the conditions, the Pro-Am class fielded riders all in the hunt of a championship. Kyle Dammann took his first win at round #1 and following a holeshot, he would mark up his second win for the season. Along with the win, Dammann would propel himself 19 points ahead of second place in the points race. East Coast ATV Rider, Kale Witmer, would put on a hard charge from a mid pack start, turning a narrowed track into his own domain. Although he would be within striking range of a moto win, he would fall a few feet short for a solid second place finish. Christopher Walls of North Hampton, PA brought home a third place finish, sealing him second place in points. While Bobby Ross was absent, he would retain his third place points. Sharing fourth place in points is; Trevor Borger, Drew Gilbert, and Josh Deemer. Only 3 rounds down, and the points race is already heating up.

Kyle Dammann not only holds the points lead in the Pro-Am class, but an 11 point lead in the 450A class as well. Christopher Walls would take home a win in the A class this weekend, propelling him into second place in points. Trevor Borger's 6th place finish dropped him back 3 points into third in points. In the largest class of the day, Josh Deemer would push his Honda hard and snag a second place finish. Matthew Aldinger would round out the podium on his Suzuki LTR.

Charlie Mcvay was well prepared for the conditions and would dominate the 450B class from start to finish in the single moto format day of racing. His win pushed him into second place in points, just behind the #114 machine of Peter Rio. Landon Herbst has been riding solid all year and proved his ability to overcome poor conditions with a second place finish. Sitting in 4th place in points, he is just two points behind Trvor Coots of Bath, NY.

Once again, racing proved to be strong throughout the remaining classes. Surely the rescheduling of round #4, brought smiles to some, others welcomed another round of mud racing. PAMX resumes on May 23-25 at the High Point Raceway in conjunction with the ATVA National Series.
