Alessi Stars At World Vet Nationals H undreds of racers from around the state and coun- try made the trek to Glen Helen Raceway for the 37th running of the Dubya World Vet Nationals, November 6-7. Many motocross and off-road stars from the past took part dur- ing the two-day race, including former Supercross winner and factory Kawasaki star Jeff Matia- sevich, former 500cc Motocross National Champion Chuck Sun, GP legend Kurt Nicoll, former 250 Supercross champ and off- road star Ty Davis, Doug Dubach, Robbie Reynard and Bob Morales, to name a few. But it was Mike Alessi who stole the show by winning some of the headlining 30-Plus Pro and Pa- sha 125cc 30+ Pro classes. In the 30 Plus Pro class, the well- known number-800, Alessi, won both motos over Jason Potter's 2-2, and Sean Lipanovich's 3-3. Another highly competitive class was the 50-Plus Pro divi- sion. World Vet veteran Dubach claimed a moto win but also suf- fered a DNF. Dubach's longtime rival, Kurt Nicoll, ended up taking the overall win via his 2-2 moto finishes. Pete Murray rounded out the top three. Team Guam, made up of Lipanovich, Kris Keefer and Dubach, emerged victorious in the World Cup of Nations race. Lipanovich is native to Guam, and since Guam is an unincorporated territory of the United States, Keefer and Dubach were eligible to ride on the team. CN SATURDAY 50+ PRO 1. Kurt Nicoll (KTM) 1-1 2.
