WHERE TO RIDE & RACE YOUR UTV: KING OF THE ELEMENTS AT 141 SPEEDWAY
OVAL RACING WITH A TWIST SEPTEMBER 18-19 2020
SxS Sports’ King of the Elements is invading 141 Speedway in Francis Creek near Maribel, Wisconsin, September 18th and 19th. This dirt-track oval will be transformed into sort of a Supermoto track with added turns, a jump or more, and a Joker Lane to test UTV racers’ cornering skills and line selection. Pro Mod, Pro Stock, Sportsman and Mini UTVs will take to this unique course, most already testing their ice-racing and short-course skills at the first two rounds of four.
At the Dirt City short-course round, Jimmy Henderson (Yam) topped the Pro Mod field over the Can-Ams of Scottie Lawrence and Tyler Livingston. In Pro Stock, Rodney VanEperen took the win ahead of John Holtger and Scott Wasz for an all-Yamaha podium. In fact, Yamaha YXZs took the top seven spots and nine of the top ten positions. Dylan Marquardt handed Yamaha another win in the Sportsman A Main, and Reid Votis (Pol) topped the Mini UTV class.
At the halfway point of the KOE series, Rodney VanEperen leads the Pro Stock main/qualifying points race over Scott Wasz 50-44, with Gabe Johnson third and Holtger fourth. All are in Yamahas. In Pro Mods, Jimmy Henderson leads Scottie Lawrence, 44-40, with Rodney VanEperen third with 34 points. Sportsman points are led by Trevor Bushmaker (Yam) with 48, while Jake Kosmecki (Yam) is send with 38 and Dylan Marquardt (Yam) is third with 36.
