“It felt good to finally get that, I have been
chasing it all year so far. I just felt solid
all weekend. My bike worked really well on that
demanding track. I was able to just ride my own
race and put two solid motos together for the
first time all year,” explained Rowe.
Rowe dedicated his overall win to a fallen youth
rider, Kyler Lenz, who suffered a tragic crash
over the weekend. Kyler’s father, Kevin Lenz,
celebrated with Rowe on the podium in his son’s
honor. “With every thing that happened, he needs
all the love and support he can get from the ATV
community right now. It was a really tragic thing
that happened. I was just getting to know Kyler
and his family. It’s really sad what happened,”
The Pro Am class leader for the national championship
points, Parker Wewerka, stayed consistent with
a second place overall finish. Wewerka won the
first moto by an incredible 17-second gap to second
place. In moto two, Wewerka was again dominating

to a fifth place moto finish for second overall.

Am podium with third place overall. “I managed
to get up on the box in Pro Am for the first time

behind him, Kaczmarzyk will be one to watch for
in the final three rounds this season.
