Jeffrey Rossier #71 had a good day going 1 for 1 in the +30 amateur class.  Here he is fighting off the charge of Bob Laposnak for the +25 amateur first moto win.  Jeffrey recently traded in his YZ450F for the 250F and is now a major contender.  Here are some other pics:       #71 crowd            #71 and ProRacePhotos

Note:   remember to scroll to the right if you don't see your racing class when the image first appears.  The camera captures 2 result pages at a time (when the pictures are taken).  So they appear "side by side" most of the time.

Erin Sheedy and her fiancee
Erin and her fiancee think I look like Leon Trotsky.  Such compliments!
Erin is getting married on September 6th.  And is going to race Claverack the next day.
And I think we are all invited for a post reception get together on Saturday.  Erin, don't worry, I'll wear my best "bourgeois" riding gear.

Now for the WILDEST move of the day that I want to share with all of you.   I wish I had a movie camera as only it could do justice to what I was witnessing in the backfield. But I did my best with an illustration as to what was going on.  Well, it was Kurt Mcmillen (#28) who was battling with Carlo and Finkle all day in the top expert classes.  But in the backfield Kurt was TRIPLING the rockers (the ones in the distant corner) and using the 4th rocker as a ramp that would jump him up onto the top of the table after it.  A breathtaking move that he was doing lap after lap (traffic willing).  Sometimes he cased the table when he landed on it taking a big impact and blowing dirt out everywhere.  It didn't deter him a bit on the next lap.

People Pics:

Alex Gillespie (202) poses with family while sister hides from me!
There SHE IS and she has a better camera than me (that's why you were hiding!)

Its the little poodle -- cared for by Mrs. Rob Beyer (Ace Treasurer)
"Dreamer", Gary Tucker and his wife were down from Frozen Ocean again
Tom Bruno (our announcer AND top expert rider) under old glory

Sal Benanti (almost 67 years old now) and riding strong in +50 class
And believe me, all of us would have "a sparkle in our eye" too if we could still ride, let alone double jump like Sal when we are that old. 

Kurt Renzland (expert #65) and family went home with gold
ACE vendors ....    Did you buy a candy bar too?
