IN THE WIND P52 Groves, Stine Take Home ROC Green T he 45th annual Race of Champions sponsored by Kawasaki ran its course at the Old Bridge Townships, Race- way Park, in Englishtown, New Jersey, October 1-3. This AMA featured event is one of the lon- gest continually running amateur motocross events in the United States. The Best Whip contest was held on Friday night over the track's famous staircase to keep everyone entertained. Andrew Maroney won the best whip, and Nitro Circus star Banksy Hover did the first backflip over this iconic track obstacle. Kawasaki star Axell Hodges was hanging out all day Saturday, signing auto- graphs and taking photos with all of his fans. Team Green Technician Doug Douchette was on hand to sup- port the Kawasaki racers, and four local dealers gave away six motorcycles on Sunday after- noon, including a KLX110, to a lucky spectator. More than 1100 racers from 16 states descended on the North- east for three days of motocross racing. Great weather and fantastic track conditions made for some great battles all week- end. There were two full days of racing on Friday and Saturday for youth and amateurs, as well as vet classes. The big winners dur- ing the amateur portion included Bryce Shelly, Gavin Towers, John Grewe, Carter Grey and Jona- than Getz, each with multiple class overall victories. Sunday's racing was for the Pro Expert classes (250cc and Open) and intermission races for amateur and mini bike riders. Pennsylvania's Bobby Piazza took the first Open A moto with New Jersey's Bryton Carroll in Gage Stine took top honors in the 250A class at the Race of Champions at Englishtown.
