2022 J Day - Round 6


Hello, and good day to you. Round 6 of the 2022 J Day season was held in a familiar town but at a new facility. The race was in Cheshire, MA but the track was brand new and at a different farm on the other side of town. The fresh cut track made for some pretty interesting racing conditions. Team Riders: Nate Marr - Pro 125 / A Open - #84 - The first of our casualties at this new track was Nate's rear tire on his 125. After sustaining some damage and a flat in the first moto, he decided to park the bike and focus on his A Open motos. It seemed to be a pretty good choice. Nate rode smooth and consistent and made the slippery new track look like a walk in the park. Nate finished 9-DNF for 9th overall in Pro 125 and 4-5 for 4th overall in A Open. Jon Gagnon - A Vet - #105 - Jon had a good start that quickly turned into a bad start when another rider cleaned out his front tire which caused him to go down and get run over by 3 riders. Undeterred, he got up and took off fighting his way up to 11th. In the second moto Jon played it safe and had a much better start but struggled with the passing lines, or lack there of. He finished 11-8 for 10th overall. Jared Drouin - B Vet - #333 - Jared had another awesome race. In both motos he had to come from the back of the pack because of issues with his bike not wanting to start on the line. He made several passes on a track that was extremely hard to make passes on. He even had a hard crash in one of the faster woods sections mid-way through the second moto. Jared kept his head down and finished 6-7 for 6th overall. Kyle Sackett - C Vet - #253 - It had been a while since I put my body through it's fair share of abuse on a dirt bike, so I decided to race this one. After a bad start I pushed and made my way up to 13th, which is where I was for most of the race. While I was trying to get around 2 lapped riders, I gave another racer the opportunity to use me as a berm and I hit the ground. My start was much better in the second moto and I took the first lap slow and steady to save some energy for the end. Surprisingly, I found myself in 12th. 3 corners later I caught my toe on a stump as a went by and tweaked my knee to the point that it was hard to shift. I decided to call it a race and went back to the truck. I finished 16-21 for 19th overall. Support Riders: Cory Desrochers - B Vet - #556 - Cory had some bike issues throughout the motos and the motor kept stalling. Either way, he kept on fighting and finished 13-13 for 13th overall. Thanks for reading!
