Triple Crown at State Fair MX | AMSOIL Race Report
AMSOIL Fall Classic Triple Crown | Round One | State Fair MX
And we’re off! The final AMSOIL Swapmoto race series of 2020 is officially underway, as the Fall Classic triple crown kicked off this past weekend at State Fair MX. To our surprise, each Swapmoto race series throughout this chaotic year has kicked off with a bang and that once again reigned true at round one of the triple crown, as nearly 600 racers joined us for a day of racing. The track crew at State Fair MX prepped two tracks to perfection, and with perfect weather in the forecast, round one of the Fall Classic triple crown was set to be another one for the books.
As for the fast guys; the pro classes held a strong turnout, which has seemed to become the usual at the AMSOIL Swapmoto race series. However, the fastest laps of the day were clearly logged by Austin Black on his KTM 250 SX-F. Austin has been putting in the work with Broc Tickle on and off of the bike for a while now, so it came as no surprise to see him at the front of the field all day long. Austin lined up in both the Pro 250F and Pro Open (125-450) classes aboard his orange machine and seemed to snag each of his four-individual moto wins with ease, as he finished nearly 30-seconds ahead of the rest of the class in each race. At the end of the day, Austin took home four impressive moto wins and two overall class victories.
No matter the track, the Novice 450F class is always worth a watch at the Swapmoto race series, as it often holds the largest big-bike race of the day and is littered with action. Over 20 riders lined up to do battle in the Novice 450F class at round one of the triple crown and man, was it exciting. Nathan Cadiz and Cole Kline were the guys to beat in moto one, as they both seemed to have an upper-hand on the rest of the competition. And sure enough, when moto two came around, it was again Nathan and Cole at the front of the field. However, the two swapped positions in moto two, giving Nathan Cadiz the overall win with his win in the second moto. Regardless of the position, the Novice 450F class was arguably one of the most exciting races of the day.
