MotoAmerica Round 6 Recap

MotoAmerica rolled into the Pacific Northwest over the weekend at the Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, WA. The event brought out a great crowd to watch top notch motorcycle racing across six classes.

Round 6 on the MotoAmerica circuit saw it’s share of ups and downs with multiple riders crashing out of races and causing challenges and heartbreak throughout the weekend. We saw some great stories play out from local riders (Mallory Dobbs) making their debut, to (Andy Dibrino) reaching the podium in front of the home crowd. There were battles back and forth throughout the track that made for exciting races, and an exciting weekend.

There was history to be made on many fronts. From Jake Gagne breaking his own record with a dialed in lap of 1:39:145 in Saturday’s qualifying to Corey Alexander’s pole setting lap of 1:41:531; and many others from fastest lap to top speed records from the weekend. Fans also got to witness Kayla Yaakov win her first ever MotoAmerica race in Sunday’s Junior Cup making her the first woman to win a MotoAmerica race. It was a weekend to remember.

One of the unique races of the weekend was the 2022 Mini Cup by Motul USA Championship, which returned to action on the kart track at the Ridge Motorsports Park. These are the youngest road racers competing in MotoAmerica. Riders competed in three different race classes on minibikes. Given where the go-kart track and main track are located you could look one direction and watch the Mini-Cup riders race, and look in another direction and be right in the action on the main track. It made for a full immersive fan experience.

Hopefully we’ll see more excitement in the future from MotoAmerica races.
