Fargo, North Dakota- December 14, 2015
Fargo, North Dakota hosted ACSS Rounds 3 and 4 during the Makita Snocross Nationals over the weekend. With virtually no snow in the upper midwest, event organizers had their hands full trying to produce enough man made snow to maintain conditions: even incorporating a flat high-speed corner, a layout not often seen in snocross. The track was slushy, wet, heavy and had minimal snow — making it extremely hard on the equipment. The upside of the warm weather was the packed grandstands, both nights.
On Friday, an injured Marica Renheim (#311) went three for three-taking 1st and 1st in her heat races and finishing out the main atop the podium. Marica rode tentatively—she is still recovering from a separated shoulder and a chipped pelvis; injuries sustained in a crash, while competing in the Duluth Nationals, clearly this did not slow her down.
Adam Renheim (#311) went 3 and 3 in his heat races Friday night, placing him fourth on the grid. He got a good hole-shot, coming out of turn one in second place. Battling third and fourth place riders, Kamm and Pallin. He was passed by both, but after a hard fight he recovered his second place position which he held until the end of the race; putting him squarely on the podium.
On Saturday, track conditions had greatly deteriorated which made it tough for the riders in wet conditions. Adam battled outside picks during his heat races, ending him up in the LCQ. He qualified in the back row of the main, finishing 8th. Adam maintains 5th overall in the ACSS National points, as we head into the Pirtek Snocross Nationals Presented by Jimmy John’s, January 8-9 in Shakopee, MN.
