Riders Win in IN and WV
CASAR, NC, May 30, 2012 – For round 6 of the
GNCC series, Team DeRisi made its way into
Springville, IN for the Limestone 100.
This venue was a new addition to the schedule,
so the riders were anxious to see what would
await them in the Indiana woods. Carter
Kerens started the morning off by rocketing his
Raptor 125 to a second place finish in 90 Open
(8-11). With his second podium in a row,
Carter is gaining momentum and the consistency
needed to be a championship contender.
Kylie Ahart put in another solid ride amongst a
stacked group of racers in the Women’s class.
Kylie finished the race with a hard-earned 4th
position, which only increases her desire to get
back on the podium.

Eric Hoyland Limestone 100 Holeshot
James Reeves Mountaineer Run GNCC
The XC2 ProAm race
started off great for Eric Hoyland, as he
grabbed the holeshot and set the early pace.
Eric looked to be on track for another class
win, but a mechanical failure brought his Honda
to a halt on lap 3. This opened the door
for teammate Braden Henthorn to mount a charge
for the win. Braden came all the way from
13th at the end of lap one to ultimately finish
in 2nd, which bumped him into the championship
Junior A riders, David and James
Reeves, once again put their DeRisi Hondas
inside the top 5. James has been inching
closer to landing his first podium finish, but
came up just short finishing 4th. David
was able to recover from a poor start and made
his way into 2nd by the halfway mark. The
leader, however, was too far out front for David
to reel in. With his 2nd place finish,
David holds the points lead in Junior A.
Brycen Neal put in yet another amazing ride by
winning College A and placing 17th overall.
Round 7 brought the racers into
another new venue for the Mountaineer Run GNCC.
The Masontown, WV track was littered with rocks
and gave the racers the challenge of an “old
school” GNCC track. Bryan Cook returned
for his fourth race of the year in XC1 Pro.
Bryan used his veteran knowledge and riding
style to secure a 9th place finish. The
most impressive feat of the day was accomplished
by 16 year-old Brycen Neal. Brycen once
again took 1st in College A, but he also charged
to 13th overall and earned the Top Amateur Award
for the race.
Eric Hoyland had a
bittersweet day in XC2 ProAm. Eric got a
good jump off the line, but had an unfortunate
crash early on which sent him near the back of
the class. Eric rode his heart out and
rebounded for a 4th place finish, which salvaged
enough points to keep him 3rd in championship
standings. Braden Henthorn was in the
process of working towards the front after a bad
start, but a freak mechanical failure ended his
day on lap 3. Braden hangs on to 2nd in
James Reeves once again displayed his
fitness and determination by overtaking his
teammate and brother, David Reeves, on the last
lap in Junior A. For the second race in a
row, James finished 4th, and he also sits
securely in 4th in points. David was able
to hold on to the 5th position, which earned him
just enough points to continue his lead in the
In the Youth ATV race,
Carter Kerens once again blasted to the front on
his DeRisi supported machine. Carter
gained another win in 90 Open (8-11) and
finished an impressive 4th overall among older
and more experienced competition. “Be sure
to keep an eye on Carter, as we believe that he
will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in
years to come”, said team owner, Santo DeRisi.
