West Coast Open at Glen Helen Raceway | AMSOIL DBK Race Report
West Coast Open | Round Two | Glen Helen Raceway
Round two of the AMSOIL DBK West Coast Open race series is officially over, as racing went off this past weekend at Glen Helen Raceway and man, it was fun one! The wind let up just before gates dropped and the perfect temperatures seemed to appeal Southern Californian racers, as hundreds of riders joined us at the iconic San Bernardino, CA facility. The track crew prepped both of the fast and fun courses to perfection, which included a new layout on the main track and a new starting line on the vet track. As the dust settled, hundreds of riders left Glen Helen Raceway with smiles on their faces, as they were able to enjoy a day throwing down laps and doing battle.
Long-time Swapmoto Race Series attendee JP Alvarez came out to Glen Helen Raceway for the second round of the West Coast Open. The Fasthouse backed off-road racer got it done in both the 250cc Pro and Pro Open classes, as he held off Josiah Natzke and Jason Fichera in each of the four motos. JP left Glen Helen Raceway having swept the fastest classes of the day and laid down arguably the fastest lap times on the challenging course.
We are just a few short days away from the 2022 Mini Major West, as action kicks off this Thursday at State Fair MX. That said, the youngsters were out in full force at the second round of the West Coast Open, as they logged one last day at the races before heading to the biggest mini exclusive race of the year. Yamaha Factory Amateur Team’s Wyatt Thurman made an appearance at Glen Helen Raceway this past weekend and spun some of the fastest lap times aboard an 85cc. The kid out of Texas managed to earn three individual moto wins and take the overall victory in both the Supermini and 85 8-12yrs Open classes. We’re excited to see how the Yamaha backed youngster does this weekend at Mini Major West!
