AMSOIL Swapmoto Race Report | State Fair MX
AMSOIL WEST COAST OPEN SERIES | ROUND ONE | STATE FAIR MX
After three months off, we are back racing! The 2020 AMSOIL West Coast Open race series is officially underway, as we kicked off the series this past weekend at State Fair MX. We were fortunate enough to experience a perfect Southern California day for the series kickoff, as the sun shined bright with the temps in the mid-80’s. With exceptional weather, perfectly groomed tracks, and nearly 600 racers anxious to get back to racing, the West Coast Open series kickoff was one for the books!
As for the Pro classes, it was a staked field in both the Pro 450F and Pro Open (125-450) classes. Between Thomas Dunn, Rene Garcia, and Dylan Gaszak, the Pro classes were full of talent and certainly held some of the most exciting racing of the year. However, at the end of the day, Rene Garcia managed to get the overall win in both the Pro 450F and Pro Open (125-450) classes. While others crashed out and made mistakes, Rene stayed consistent lap after lap and ended up taking the top spot when the race day came to an end.
As usual at the Swapmoto Race Series, the vet rider turnout was obvious, as each and every vet class was full of excited racers. Amongst the handful of vet racers, series regular Branden Milstead set some of the fastest laps of the day while leading his competition in each of his four motos. Branden put together four perfect motos in both the 30+ Pro and Vet Expert Open class and walked his way to an overall win in each class. With four moto wins and two overall victories on the day, we’d say Branden had a solid day at the races!
As always, the Supermini classes were packed full of action and exciting moments. Though, consistency was key in the Open 85-150F/Supermini at round one of the West Coast Open. As for moto one, Dustyn Davis was the kid to beat, but come moto two, Riley Ojeda took advantage of a good start and took the moto win. However, the overall Supermini class win went to Myles Monty, with a 2-2 performance. While Myles stayed consistent in both motos, others did the opposite and their overall class scoring hindered by the mistakes. Well done, Myles!
