The final showdown this weekend in Motocross Town

weston_1028

Another national championship season – one of the most dramatic and volatile in years – is drawing to a close with the traditional final showdown at Walton Raceway in Walton, ON, a venue that has been on the CMRC Nationals schedule since 1992.
 
While every event on the calendar makes the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals the great series it is, Walton has more than earned its reputation as the crown jewel of Canadian motocross. Huron East Council declared Walton, which draws the largest motocross spectator crowds in the country, “Motocross Town” in 2008, a moniker that is unique and well placed. Walton is to Canadian motocross what Wimbledon is to tennis, the Super Bowl to football and Indianapolis to auto racing. Winning Walton is about bragging rights. It is a national every serious competitor wants to add to his career highlights.
 
Of the current A-list riders only Colton Facciotti, Bobby Kiniry, Tyler Medaglia, Teddy Maier and Shawn Maffenbeier have won at Walton. Facciotti – holding the record with three victories – and Kiniry recorded MX1 wins while Medaglia, Maier, and Maffenbeier wrote the MX2 beside their names. Rockstar Energy Drink OTSFF Yamaha’s Maffenbeier is the only rider of the group to compete in MX2 this season, a series he is currently ranked third in the points in, just two down from second place, Smartop MotoConcepts Racing’s Vince Friese. A repeat win for Maffenbeier, who claimed the overall last weekend in Ulverton, would more than do the trick for the Saskatchewan native to displace Friese from runner-up. In actuality, Maffenbeier only needs to stay ahead of Friese, regardless where they end in the motos, as long as they end in the points. All he has to do is make up the two-point difference and score an additional one to put him ahead of the Missouri native. MX2 points leader, Royal Distributing KTM’s Kaven Benoit, has a 42-point margin over Friese, and the only way Benoit can lose the championship is if he finishes with zero points this Sunday and Friese scores at least 43 or Maffenbeier picks up 46. It is highly unlikely this scenario will transpire; Benoit just needs to stay on two wheels and pick up a handful of points to call himself the 2014 MX2 National Champion.
 
Without a doubt the biggest battles will be for runner-up and third place in the championship. MX101 Yamaha’s Jesse Wentland is the only rider in the top-five who has a mathematical chance to still claim third, depending on how Maffenbeier and Friese perform. Wentland trails Maffenbeier by 22 points, Friese by 24. The rest of the MX2 top-10 are pretty well in place, although seventh thru 12th is subject to change, as there is only a 29-point gap between them. One thing is almost certain, Monster Energy Thor Kawasaki’s Jeremy Medaglia, currently eighth in the points, will be ousted from the top-10, as his season ended with a broken collarbone at In the premiere class, GDR Honda’s Colton Facciotti, like Benoit in MX2, needs only to stay on two wheels and collect a handful of points to claim his fourth MX1 National Championship. With a 44-point margin over Smartop MotoConcepts Racing’s Mike Alessi, Facciotti is in solid command of the title hunt. While it’s not over till it’s over, Alessi looks more than good to finish the series as runner-up. The American holds a 34-point advantage over third in the rankings, Royal Distributing Fox KTM’s Tyler Medaglia. For his part, Medaglia will need strong finishes if he wants to keep Monster Energy Thor Kawasaki’s Josh Hill behind him in fourth place; only eight points separate the two.
 
The biggest MX1 points battle will centre around third through sixth, with Medaglia, Hill, Rockstar Energy Drink OTSFF Yamaha’s Kyle Chisholm, and Hill’s teammate Teddy Maier as the combatants. Only 26 points separate Medaglia from sixth place.
 
According to the weather forecast, riders and spectators can expect a slight breeze, sunshine mixed with variable cloudiness, and a comfortable temperature of 25C.

Michigan vs Canada at the TransCan

RACE ACROSS THE HURON! Michigan has a long history of winning races at Canada’s biggest motocross event, the Walton TransCan. (No surprise, as Detroit is only 2 hours away from the town of Walton in Southwestern Ontario.) The state has churned out many great racers over the years, including Jeff Stanton, Nick Wey and Josh Woods (the last two have won Pro races at Walton) and in 2014, we’ll see young Joey Crown leading the ‘Michigan Mafia’ during the weeklong amateur portion of the TransCan.

AMERICANS INVADING CANADA. It’s been arguably the best year yet in the Canadian Motocross Nationals, with US riders Mike Alessi, Josh Hill, Kyle Chisholm, Seth Rarick, Teddy Maier, and Bobby Kiniry taking on Canada’s best racers Colton Facciotti, Tyler Medaglia and Kaven Benoit.

Who is going to be crowned MX2 & MX1 National Champions at Walton next Sunday? Will it be the Canadians Facciotti (MX1) and Benoit (MX2), or the Americans Alessi (MX1) and Vince Friese (MX2) taking home the gold?

My region doesn’t run all the classes listed

Due to smaller numbers, a class may not be run at some regional ANQs. If that happens GNC entries will be accepted based on date received up to the number allocated to that region.

When should I enter?

NOW would be a good time. We recommend that you send entries immediately. You do not have to wait until ANQs are completed. Sign up on-line now at www.motoregistry.ca

What qualifier places are automatically given a gate position?

Each region has gate positions allocated based on each regions membership. You are guaranteed a position if your entry is received by June 19 and you placed in the allocated positions in your regional qualifier series. Allocations as follows: Vancouver Island (2), BC Mainland (1), Alberta (7), Saskatchewan (2), Manitoba (3) Northern Ontario (1), Central Ontario (1), South Western Ontario (11), Eastern Ontario(3), Quebec (7), Atlantic (4)

How do I pay?

Use your bank account, MasterCard/Visa/Amex etc cards or PayPal account for payment when you sign up on-line at www.motoregistry.ca. Mailed payments must be accompanied by a cheque or money order payable to Tite Racing Promotions Inc. in Canadian funds to be valid. Cheques post dated are not acceptable. Race entries will be processed when funds are received.  NSF or post dated cheques and improper funds will result in the entry being denied until funds are received.

What else do I need to know?

Confirmations will be emailed out following completion of regional qualifiers and compilation of national results. After that on an as received basis. This will include a complete participants information. The order of preference for first moto gate position, resolution of number conflicts and the order of standby entries are determined by qualifier position and date of entry. Your confirmation email letter should be available at sign in if there are any problems with registration, so hang on to it.

Can I cancel my entry?

What are the entry deadlines?

This is a limited entry event with up to a full gate of 42 in each class.

Pre-­entries for riders who rode their qualifiers must be received no later than June 19. Gate positions allocated to each region (quantity based on regional membership) will be assigned at that time. After June 19 qualified entries will be accepted on a first come basis for standby or open positions. After June 30 all entries will be accepted on a first come basis for standby or open positions.

Do I need to qualify?

In order to pre-enter you must have participated in at least one amateur national qualifier so that you show up on the entry list for the class you are entering from your qualifying region.

I didn’t qualify in the ANQ’s, can I still enter?

If your qualifier series position is lower than your region’s allocated positions, you may still get a starting position based on riders that qualified in your region that did not enter the GNC. If other regions’ entries do not fill their allocated positions, these will be filled based on the date the entry form is received. So your best bet is to Sign up on-line now at www.motoregistry.ca

Can I qualify in another region?

Yes. Not only that, you can ride ANQs in as many regions and in as many classes as you like and then pick the results which give you the best entry position.

What is a standby entry?

When a gate is full, we maintain a list of riders who want to ride in a particular class. If there are cancellations or no-shows, the gate will be filled from the standby list in the order entries are ranked.

Rick Joseph Memorial Award

The Rick Joseph Memorial Award is an annual award presented at the Parts Canada TransCan to recognize the character, achievements and potential of riders in the Intermediate class.

Rick Joseph Jr. first came to our attention during the mid ’80s when he, like most of us was struggling to learn the basic skills required to survive as a beginner. He and his family and friends were regular Saturdays for ‘house league’ motocross events at Hully Gully. His enthusiasm for the sport was obvious despite a normally shy personality.

His commitment became increasingly obvious as he honed his talent to raise his level of achievement. Against a strong contingent which included riders such as Chris Pomeroy and Brad Lockhart, Rick was gaining strength and recognition. To further challenge himself he also competed in the USA and it was at the Mini Olympics at Gainseville Florida that he suffered an injury that ultimately claimed his life in the fall of 1989.

Richard and Ellie Joseph, his parents, have maintained their connections with the sport and can be seen on competing in the +40 and ladies classes. Each year they have posted a $300 cash award for presentation at the Walton event. In addition the recipients receive a plaque embossed with a graphic taken from a picture of Rick which appeared in Motocross Action capturing Rick getting the holeshot at Gainseville Mini O’s in the 250B class. Eligible riders are limited to residents of Canada and cannot repeat. A committee of independent observers submit nominations from their evaluation of a number of criteria looking at the whole season.The criteria recognize the difficulty most riders have in making the transition to pro class racing and attempts to evaluate the strength of character, sportsmanship, self discipline and personality in addition to ability and results which should make this a successful transition
