World Mini Grand Prix 2012 – Day Four

After four days of racing, the action has concluded at the 2012 World Mini Grand Prix. The majority of the championships were decided on Saturday with final motos and runoffs beginning at 8AM. A storm front moved through Mesquite late Friday night and early Saturday morning, and added much needed moisture to the hardpacked track. Low clouds covered the snowcapped mountains and made it seem as if more rain was inevitable, but no extra precipitation occurred while the event took place.

The day began with Dillan Epstein and Jeremy Martin’s battle for the 250 A Mod class championship. Martin overcame a week of early issues and claimed second moto wins in both the 450 and 250 class over Epstein, but his sixth place finish in the first moto was not enough to claim the overalls. Martin and Epstein had dueled throughout the week, including accidental contact between the two that ended with Martin on the ground. Epstein would earn both the 250 and 450 Mod titles on Saturday, his second and third championships of the event.

Matt Bisceglia continued his domination of the Intermediate class and clinched the 450 Mod, 250 Stock and Mod, and 250 Four Stroke Non Pro championships. Bisceglia found a new challenger in Brady Kiesel, as the KTM rider kept Biceglia at bay in both the 250 Stock and 250 Four Stroke classes for a number of laps. Kiesel’s strong finish to the week was enough to move him higher in the overall standings and he finished in the top five in each of his five class.

Red Bull KTM racer Dakota Alix’s overcame a dramatic week, one that kept the Intermediate class favorite from battling with Bisceglia for wins, to earn both the 125 Two Stroke and 125-250 Schoolboy championships. Alix’s riding style allowed him to charge to the front of the pack after lackluster starts, but pulled off the track after numerous issues in the 250 Four Stroke Non Pro second moto.

Tyler Enticknap flew under the radar for the majority of the week but his results, including his Collegeboy win, should help make the Californian a well known name in amateur circles. Enticknap finished in the top five in each of his four classes, which included the ultra competitive B class.
