Warnert Racing: Race Report #4

miranda Team Press

Rounds 7 & 8

After a weekend off the team travelled east to Salamanca New York for round four of the Snocross series. Mother Nature made for some interesting snow conditions as we saw unseasonably warm temperatures plunge overnight. Friday’s practice started off good with both racers posting top times on the compact race course. The first round of qualifying had the 511 machine grappling for traction off the line. Jordan was forced to fight through the field in both rounds of qualifying for a 3-3 finish setting him up on the front row for the final. Pelletier returned to competition after injury and went straight from the pan into the fire scrapping for every track position. Frank ended up qualifying with a 4-5 after an opening lap tip over in the second round.
  The Pro Lite final had Lebel absorbed by the field on the first run down the rhythm section. Lapping fast, he pushed his way up into second by the closing laps, but ran out of time to keep his win streak alive. Pelletier bolted off the line with a good jump found himself swallowed in the first turn crossing the line in sixth. Pushing himself for the whole final found him challenging for forth but settling for fifth.

  Saturday flurries flew to a few adjustments to the race course. Both racers posted respectable times during their practices. The first round of qualifying for 511 started with a win and the second round with a starting mishap. Jordan hesitated when the racer next to him jumped the light yet the officials let the race go. Forced to play catch up he was only able to work his way into fifth place. Qualifying went well for the 220 machine scoring a 3-2 giving him forth pick for the final.
  Lebel lined up mid gate and came away from the green with a decent start. After getting crowded in the first turn he crossed the timing line in seventh position. On the sixth lap is where the wheels came off the cart. High winds and flurries coupled with the snow dust obscured Jordan’s vision at an inopportune time entering the rhythm section. He clipped a double jump with his ski causing him to flip the sled and him to go over the handlebars. Once he remounted and re-entered the race, he was a lap down, racing to the end he finished eleventh. Frank’s final was ferocious, forced back on the first few laps he was able to fight his way forward to finish fifth.

  The schedule takes a break before we are off to the rodeo in Deadwood South Dakota. Good thing there’s a heater in our truck…..
