Cycle Ranch Hosts Texas Two Stroke Spring Cup Championship
Cycle Ranch motocross track in Floresville Texas is known for running a top notch motocross facility. Legends such as Andrew Short and Kent Howerton are regulars…in fact Howerton’s son Derek can be seen regularly, ripping up the sweet MX track at blistering speeds inherited from his father. This weekend “The Ranch” hosted it’s Texas Two Stroke Spring Cup with title sponsor RealMotocross.com stepping up to the plate. As expected the premier MX event was a huge success for both racers and fans alike. This event continues to prove an underground resurgence of two stroke racing across America, providing over 30 classes for two strokes. Promoters offered four additional classes of exciting head to head racing between 2 stroke and 4 stroke dirt bikes. Many classes were run as two stroke only races, offering no shortage of payout and awards from Risk Racing, Scott USA, Red Bull, and more. Probably the classic battle of the day came when up and coming amateur James Chris Morris (#94) somehow managed to beat pro mx racer and respected MX trainer from Florida, Tyler Livesay. It was a head to head battle between the two, mostly for pride since both racers were actually in different classes. Though Morris won, both Livesay and Morris went 1-1 for the win in thier respected classes. The 250 C class was as intense as always, offering some true beginner talent. Christian Eubanks (#189) came out on-top in front of an excited crowd. The young champ recently won Ricky Carmichael’s prestigious Amateur Daytona Supercross 250 C class too and could have a promising future. In the 2 stroke open amateur class, it was the HP Performance backed bike of Colbe Perrenot (#301) whose consistent 2-1 results won him the overall win. ChronicMX’s very own team rider, Eli Kay, once again amazed everyone with a 2nd overall on his Suzuki 250f in a stacked class of 250 two strokes. Eli only recently began racing and has obviously proven that hard work, consistent training a natural talent are a key to good results. Eli’s 2nd place finish was a well deserved one, and Team Chronic MX will continue to support this well mannered mx’er on his way to lorretta’s and beyond. Overall, Cycle Ranch’s two stroke championship was a very well managed event offering lots of exciting racing and killer two stroke scents and sounds to keep everyone smiling. Watch for more championship races to be held at Cycle Ranch’s 5 star track this summer. Congratulations to all the winners. Until next time, this is ‘RD4Ever’ reporting track-side from Cycle Ranch Texas for ChronicMx! Braaaaappp!
