Weekend Race Report - Virginia Motorsports Park

Fall like temps filled the air for another great weekend of motocross racing in Southern Va. This time the racers from MAMA and AMA District 13 lined up at the Virginia Motorsports Park. This again would be our only trip to this facility this year, but it is always worth it.

It would be another great turnout as MAMA and D 13 came together to race.

Hanging Out at Hemlock Acres Campground

There are a couple things that we love in life, and right at the top of that list is peace and quiet in the great outdoors. The wilds of Penns Woods or the area better known as the state of Pennsylvania offers great opportunities for the camping and outdoor enthusiast alike.

This past week we took the time to mix some business with pleasure and ended up at Hemlock Acres Campground located just a short distance from State College of Pa. You would never know that this little piece of heaven on earth is so close to one of the biggest college sports phenoms in the nation (the Penn State Nittany Lions). As you drive up the mountain and into this outdoor haven, the peace and serenity of mother nature kicks in and your troubles seem to get left behind.


Our hosts, Rudy and Ann Schock, who just happen to be clients of ours welcomed us to their property to get a feel for what camping at Hemlock Acres is like. Keep in mind that Hemlock is filled with mostly seasonal campers that return year in and year out for not only the hospitality offered here, but also the atmosphere and amenities the Schock's have to offer. They park their RV's and travel trailers on the close to 150 acre complex to forget about life for a while.

If your not a regular however, this campground offers a number of transient sites both back in and pull through along with a number of rental cabins that sleep anywhere from two to eight people. Some are rustic and some have bathrooms but all are well equipped for your stay. Two bath houses and a game room and playground with pool are onsite to keep you comfortable while there.

We've stayed at a lot of different facilities over the years and we loved the cabins at Hemlock. They were in great condition, were well equipped and the best part, were bright and clean inside.

Tent sites for individuals and groups are also available here. Nestled under the Hemlocks on the very back of the property, this area offers picnic tables and fire rings and a peaceful nights sleep. (no traffic noise to worry about here) and lots of area to explore.

To top it all off, an in ground pool and play area lie near the entrance to the campground and are centrally located for all guests to enjoy.

Below find some information from their website:

Fishing, Hiking, Sightseeing: 

There is so much to do in the area around Hemlock Acres. You'll discover world-class trout streams, lakes for swimming or canoeing, trails for hiking or biking and caves to explore. Plus we are near the campus of Penn State University and world-famous Woodward Camp of X-Game fame. Perhaps you prefer antiquing or visiting galleries with works by local artists and craftsmen or touring wineries. It's all in our neighborhood!

SRT AMA East Hare Scramble Rd 6

Story: Kenny Held
Photos: Stacey Sigety

08/11/19 Battle Creek MI. SRT-AMA East HS Round 6 was co hosted by District 14’s Battle Creek MC. Voted the best HS of the year unanimously by racers and spectators alike every year they host. The BC MX track has the perfect combination of MX, technical trails and challenging enduro x sections. 

The course is always well marked and flowing. The 8 mile main event would include all levels. AA, A, B and C. Slated for 2.5 hour event resulted in 100’s of hours of individual entertainment. Spectating is absolutely off the charts. You are guaranteed to see the racers throughout several sections of the track due to the clover leaf design. 

Byron Kibee and his crew never disappoint. 10 AA/Experts would line up to do battle. Local favorite Tyler Vore Gas Gas and visiting Kyle McDonal Beta were the 2 to watch. Vore is preparing for the 2019 ISDE and McDonal is maintaining his points lead for the EHS. When the flag dropped, it was more like the 1st turn at the Anaheim SX.  10 wide and elbow to elbow.  When the group hit the MX section it was Vore out front with Talon Soenksen YAM giving chase. Shane Spangler KTM was sitting in 3rd. 

East Coast racers McDonal and Bush were getting off to a not so great start but were carving their way through the pack. At the midway point Vore, with almost a minute lead would put it on cruise control. Unfortunately Spangler, Bush and McDonal entered the passing lane and began to close the gap. Now we had pitting strategy and lappers thrown into the mix. Before we knew it Vore and Spangler were bar to bar turn to turn. A brief mistake for Spangler allowed McDonal to move into 2nd. McDonal would then have a get-off on the MX track allowing  Spangler to regain 2nd. Hunter Bush would secure 4th position   It stayed this way to the end.

In the C class which actually ran on the back rows of the main event, would have some pretty interesting results. Not what you would expect on a track of this size. Three Teenage racers from row 10 on small bore 125’s would immediately get out front and begin a battle that lasted for 6 laps. Team Perfect Storm’s  Kenito Held - SUZ, Bode Meylan KTM and Jacob Mohnke YAM would pass most of the A’s and B’s by mid way through the event. Held and Melan would exchange the lead no less the 5 times. On the white flag lap, Held would make a daring pass on the final MX section Over Jumping the landing areas and would establish a 4 second lead in the final turns to the checkers. This was Kenito Helds’ day as earlier in the morning he would Overall the Youth Event. Mohnke would secure 3rd about a minute back.

In the Morning Youth event Kenito Held would lead from start to finish aboard his Team Perfect Storm prepped RM85 Big Wheel. 2nd place was local favorite Patrick McMillen aboard his KTM and 3rd Would go to Ryder Sigety aboard a dad prepped YZ65. This kid will be one to watch now and in the future. Kudos to his mom Stacey for providing the attached photos.

In the Pee Wee  50 class Enzo Zaccaria would make a last minute appearance. Enzo didnt immediately take the lead but was 3rd into the 1st turn. By the 2nd lap he had moved into 1st passing local talent Benton Richardson and Aiden Campbell. The 2 tried frantically to keep Enzo on the radar but it was not to be. Enzo, turning out 20 second faster lap times separated himself from the rest and would take the checkers. AMA East 50cc points leader Camryn Popek was in attendance but a mechanical issue prevented him from making the gate. Camryn would later redeem himself by taking 4th OA in the Jrs class.
