Badger State Quad Championship Series Wrap-up Report

Gillett Junior

September 9, 2010 - The 2010 season has had its challenges for racing in general for Wisconsin. We came into the year with 7 events on our calendar. It seemed no matter what, Mother Nature was going to throw a wrench in the form of rain into our plans as most of our events would be cancelled, rescheduled, or cut short. However by the end of the year we will be able to put 6 events under our belts with an average around 100 entries at every round which is a nice improvement of an average of 70 the previous year. Our last round for the year will be in Gillett, WI on September 26th.

On to the race action………..The core of our racers this year have come from the youth classes. Our first race we had at Gillett, WI saw a 20 entry junior class. It was great to see that many entries in one class and with it being a youth class helps to reassure the future of ATV racing. Brian Kinczfogel would pull out the overall win followed by Jacob Appleton and Camden Vistain out of those 20 entries during round #2 of the series.

Round #4 would take us back to Gillett, WI again. Turnout was down slightly from the first time but the track would see some minor improvements over the first round and again a decent showing of 12 entries in the junior class. Brian Kinczfogel would once again stake his claim to the track and beat out the rest of the competition in the class, followed by Jacob Appleton and Dylan Marquardt (see picture). Round #5 in Byron, IL would see the same entry numbers. Jacob Appleton, Evan Clemens, Devon Borski, and Marcus Misfieldt would see some new completion this round though with some local riders from Illinois showing up and national champion Sam Rowe. Sam Rowe would be the fastest guy on the track and take the win for the day. However, there was girl on the track by the name of Catherine Verbeten showing the guys what was up and taking 2nd place and local rider Jeremy Raupp in 3rd. Jacob Appleton would secure the overall win in the class for the series with his 4th place finish on the day giving him a 67 point lead going into the final round.

The youth classes weren’t the only ones to provide a consistent turn out for the series though. The +25 class would provide solid numbers all year and a welcoming 13 rider field at round #5 in Byron, IL. Local riders would end up dominating the class on the day with Neil Hambley, Adam Koehler, and Shawn Long taking the top spots on the day.

As mentioned there will be a final round in Gillett, WI on September 26th. We plan on adding a tag team race and pit bike race between motos for a little extra fun on the day. We will also be adding $100  Production A class and $150 to the Pro-Am Production class for the day as long as there is a minimum of 4 entries per class. Over the next two weekends the Gillett Rail Runners ATV club and the Wisconsin ATV MX club will be making some more changes and additions to the track. We are looking forward to another great race to round out the season. Shortly after this season wraps up, we will have our awards banquet and a club meeting shortly after to plan our 2011 season. Look for us to return to some of the same tracks for 2011 and possibly some new ones. Quad MX racing is alive and well in Wisconsin and we invite everyone to come out and enjoy the fun.
