West Hare Scrambles - Silver State Trail Blazers Saw Mill Run

This is a press release from West Hare Scrambles…

(May 15, 2017) The 2017 AMA KENDA/SRT West Hare Scrambles series heads to Pioche, Nevada for the Saw Mill Run: Battle at Boothill. Hosted by Silver State Trail Blazers, the pinnacle terrain of Nevada desert awaits the West Hare Scramble racers of round six.

Complete with tight trails, flowing sand washes and technical terrain; there is something for everyone at the Saw Mill Run. The exciting racing action is set to go down all day Saturday, where fans will get to watch riders from 4-years old, all the way to the Nation’s top professional West Coast hare scramble racers compete. The day begins with the Pee Wee’s, who will race on a 2.5 mile course for 30-minutes. Shortly after, the flag will wave for the Mini classes that includes Girls, Big Wheel, 85cc 7-11 and Jr. Girls who take on an 11-mile course for 1.5 hours. Early in the afternoon, the big bikes take to the starting line where the Women, Masters 60+, Sportsman, and entire Novice line up will go bar to bar.

The feature event of the day begins at 1:30 in the afternoon, where fans can watch the West Coast’s best go head to head. Points leader, and Beta’s very own, Max Gerston looks to further extend his points lead ahead of District 36’s Joey Fiascanaro and 2016 Purvines Yamaha DA8 Champion Nick Burson. Considering there has been a new winner at EVERY round this year, the racing has never been more intense! In the Pro 250 ranks, JT Baker has gone practically undefeated to secure the points lead, except for round three where second points placeholder Cole Conaster took a victory of his own. Dillon Sheppard sits tied with Conaster heading into the sixth round.

Racing is just days away, so don’t miss out on an action-packed weekend of racing in the cool Southern Nevada desert!

WHS Director, Brian Garrahan: “I am excited to visit the state of Nevada to see what challenges the local riders add to the mix! Now that we are at the mid-way point in the season, all cards are on the table and racers are even more focused on championships. Let’s go racing!”
