2018 Sprint Hero Round 2 Iron Mine Race Park

Justin Jones Wins Sprint Hero Race, Takes Points Lead

Cedar City, UT (3/11/2018) – Justin Jones won the Sprint Hero Racing Series held at Iron Mine Raceway. Jones, riding his Monster Energy Honda, beat out Cole Shondeck and Destry Abbott for the victory and took the points lead in the process. The event was the second of three being held this season.

Weather was dry on Saturday with slick and dusty conditions. Rain overnight brought the track surface around nicely on Sunday with perfect racing conditions. Jones, who finished second in the first race at Glen Helen, had to play catch up after a hard tumble during Saturday’s race. He came back on Sunday and took the win.

“On Saturday, Destry and Cole Shondeck were really going fast and I didn’t make it easy on myself,” said Jones. “I made a lot of mistakes and went down hard once. I rebounded on Sunday and conditions couldn’t have been better. We had a decent amount of rain last night and I came out on top.”

Jones enjoys the new series as it offers something for everyone. Not only does it feature 22 classes, the format also allows people of all fitness and experience levels to challenge themselves on the different tests.

“This is favorite type of racing because you have competition in your class, but you’re really racing against yourself and the clock,” said Jones. “You can really turn yourself inside out in minutes and it shows raw speed off road.”

After finishing fifth in the opener, Shondeck decided to run the whole series and was rewarded with a runner-up finish, just behind Jones. A veteran motocross racer, Shondeck said the format has helped him really come up to speed in off-road racing.

“It was an awesome weekend. The Enduro Test was super cool. The single-track section was tight and completely different than the rest of it. The GP sections were fast, but they were fun. You get a little bit of everything out here. I grew up doing motocross and I’m a little bit new to the off road stuff,” said Shondeck.

Forty-five-year-old Destry Abbott finished third on the weekend, just ahead of his son Cooper. Despite fitness levels challenged by chemotherapy, Abbott was able to put in competitive runs both days. He said the new format allows him to continue racing.

“This series is for everybody,” said Abbott. “My fitness isn’t all there. I’m still dealing with chemo and being 45 isn’t the best, so this style is really the best for me right now. You can be young or old and this is a great style of racing. This series is really going to take off. You come in, talk to your buddies and have a good time. Then you go out and do another test.”

The Sprint Hero Racing Series finishes its season at Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ. That event is scheduled for April 14-15.

JAN 07, 2018

The first ever Sprint Hero Enduro saw two days of intense racing at Glen Helen Raceway this weekend. At the end of 14 special tests, 3 Bros/STI Husqvarna rider Zach Bell was the overall winner thanks to his perfect sweep of day two. Zach came into the day behind Honda rider Justin Jones, who had very good scores in the enduro-oriented sections on day one. But Bell learned quickly, improving his times with every effort. He won by 25 seconds when it was all over, with Gas Gas rider Travis Coy third.

Dirt Bike Race Report Round 1 2018 Sprint Hero Racing

WORCS director Sean Reddish came up with the idea of a west coast Sprint Enduro series after visiting one round of the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro series back east. He brought the format out west, giving full credit to the Full Gas organizers. This season, part of the proceeds will go to the DA8 Strong Foundation. He also used former WORCS Champion Robby Bell for help in construction the course, which consisted of two separate loops; one enduro based and the other MX oriented. The riders started off each day with a single loop of the enduro section, departing in 20 second intervals. They rode that section twice more, with a short break between each run. Then they switched to the MX loop, which was run three times in the same fashion. At the start of each of these tests, the riders were queued up according to their times from the previous test, with faster riders up front. Despite it being a completely unfamiliar format to most of the riders, they seemed to under stand immediately what was going on and what to do.

Each day started off started off with a Youth Program. That was highlighted by an impressive race match up between Honda mounted Wyatt Cameron and TM rider Bradley East–Cameron came out on top. The first test of the Adult show had an unexpected twist. Ty Tremaine had the best score on an Alta Redshift electric bike. Tremaine will be riding the Alta in EuduroCross this year and was experimenting to see what else the bike was capable of doing. Unfortunately, the whole program is so new that the details of trackside recharging haven’t quite been worked out, so Ty was forced to deal with dwindling power reserves for the rest of the day. Jones was second ahead of Bell in that test, but all of the remaining tests for the weekend were won by Jones or Bell.

Eventually, Tremaine retired and that left third place up for grabs. Some riders favored the enduro tests and other excelled in the MX tests. Travis Coy and Vet A rider Brad Goolsby were outstanding on the enduro loop, while Cole Shondeck was up front in the MX sections. Kacy Martinez was also fast on the enduro loop, usually finishing in the top 10. As it turned out, the Enduro section was longer, and that was the deciding factor. Coy finished third in the end with ISDE rider Nick Stover in fourth and Shondeck fifth. Both Nic Garvin and Brandon Krause returned from injury, finishing sixth and seventh, respectively. Goolsby was the first non-pro in eighth and Martinez was top woman in 16th. For results and more info on Sprint Hero Racing, click here.

Sprint Hero Racing Featured Header DA8 Strong Announcement

BE A HERO. RACE. LOGOBeing a Sprint Hero means helping out others so we partnered with Destry Abbott’s new foundation DA8 Strong.

A portion of each entry will go to the DA8 Strong Foundation. “Improving the quality of life for cancer patients and their families.”

DA8 STRONG FOUNDATION

BE A HERO. RACE.

 

The DA8 Strong Foundation Story:

DA8 STRONG FOUNDATIONDA8 Strong, a 501(c)3 non profit cancer foundation, was created after my wife and I were both diagnosed with cancer in 2016. As you can imagine, it was a major shock for both of us and had a huge impact on our quality of life. Cancer honestly enters your life like a whirlwind and everything “normal” that previously existed in your life gets pushed to the side due to treatments, money, time, and illness. However due to our amazing family, friends and the motorcycle community we were actually given back our quality of life through donations, meal deliveries, transportation assistance, house cleaning, recreation, making sure our kids had food/groceries, etc. We were truly blessed with everyone’s support and it made us realize that not everyone dealing with cancer is as lucky. Knowing what a huge impact this support had on our battle with cancer, we wanted to pay it forward and help other cancer patients reclaim their quality of life!

 

DA8 STRONG MISSION STATEMENT:

DA8 Strong’s mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families through charitable support, recreation and services.

DA8 STRONG AIMS TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING SUPPORT FOR CANCER PATIENTS & THEIR FAMILIES:

meal delivery
groceries
household bills
handyman services
house cleaning
transportation assistance
fitness
wigs
family recreation
youth recreation
youth & family sx/mx experience (semi tours, track walk, meet the team, tickets, etc)
youth & family pro sport experience
mini vacations
& more…
