Lake Havasu, AZ (November 17, 2019) — For almost all of the classes that race with AZOP, the 2019 Havasu Havik Grand Prix represented the final opportunity to earn points and make moves in the chase for a championship. The ultimate round of the Rowley White RV Series was presented by XTC Motorsports and Moto City and brought racers to a dedicated short course that literally put riders and drivers on the shore of Lake Havasu. The groomed and manicured Grand Prix style circuit was about two miles long and offered plenty of opportunities for riders to pass and be passed while snaking through the dry hills and swampy washes that abut the lake. Highlighted by a huge tabletop immediately after the start line and a step-down to flat jump over water at the tail end of the course, the track provided plenty of excitement for riders and spectators – most of whom also benefited from a great vantage point from the pit area overlooking the track.
With perfect racing weather and a gorgeous backdrop, racers showed up in big numbers, some with the intent of winning a championship and others just looking to get a race trophy for a weekend of hard work. The race stewards had the track watered and bladed to perfection and had managed to follow the natural terrain while still allowing space for plenty of man-made jumps and rhythm sections. After two days of bar-banging, wheel-rubbing racing, the dust settled on the various championship races with the following results:
