Sunny skies greeted the ATV racers at round three of the 2008 WV State HS Championship held at Timberline Ski Resort in Davis, WV. The track was dry and the rocks were exposed as the ATV racers raced through the seven-mile course. Gabe Phillips took the hole shot and never looked back showing no signs of his early summer race injury. By the end of the race it was Phillips, Honda pilot Bryan Channell and in third was John Marmol Jr.

Phillips talked about his race in the post race interview with Roy Dains. “I just pulled the hole shot and took off. The first lap, I just set my own pace. I paced myself and didn’t make any stupid mistakes, like I made in the past. I just tried to keep her on four wheels and just keep moving forward.” Phillips really only stumbled once but it was a quick fix and did not effect his lead. “Last lap, Bunnell was just behind me and I clipped a tree. It went from breaker bumps into a turn and I hit the tree with that tire. I had to get off and move the front end over and it really didn’t take that long.” By the end of the race Phillips was around six minutes ahead of Channell. Channell has consistently been finishing in the top four and won at Pheasant Run. Five minutes behind Channell was Pennsylvania Yamaha rider Marmol.

Marmol was the top B Class rider out of Open B and Richie Nolan took home second in the class and fifth overall. Behind Richie Nolan came a pack of Open C 16-29 riders. They all made six laps on the track and all finished within thirty seconds of each other. Pennsylvania Honda rider Robby Johnston edged out West Virginia Yamaha rider Mark Moore and fellow Pennsylvania Honda rider Nathan Yoder. Behind them finishing ninth overall was the top School Boy rider Josh Dains. He finished with six laps and was over ten minutes ahead of second place in that class Canan Summerfield. In the Open C 30 + Peter Dandrea edged out Ride ‘n’ Dirty Racing’s Kevin Helmick.
