Johnny Girrior Wins Red Fern GP
Round four of the J Day GP series headed north to Chester, NH for the Red Fern GP. The track was located on a stunning 120-acre horse farm featuring rolling pastures and flowing trails. The race was postponed one week due to torrential rain and luckily with dry weekend conditions, the track dried out just enough for a great day of J Day action.
The big surprise of the day was the absence of defending champ Jake Korn. Apparently Jake’s high speed crash at Crow Hill, left him with torn stomach muscles that may have him on the sidelines for the next two races as well.
Moto one started with Beau Viens grabbing the Holeshot only to fall back in the pack in the opening lap. Jon Girrior took over the lead on the opening lap, putting down unbelievably fast laps, finishing 50 seconds ahead of Chase Simone. Simone battled with Josh Cennamo for the majority of the moto, finishing only 2 seconds apart. Fourth place went to Jacob Morrison and fifth went to Derrick Barnaby.
Moto two had Jon Girrior grab the STS Motorsports Holeshot award. Lap after lap, Girrior put in lap times that no one could even come close to and he went on to finish moto two 1:45 minutes ahead of the others. Second place went to Loud Fuels’s Jacob Morrison and Jared Boothroyd would hold on for take third seconds ahead of Josh Cennamo. Dylan Macritchie fought his way from tenth place on the first lap to a strong fifth place finish. Chase Simone would suffer a flat tire half way through the moto ruining his shot at the podium.
The overall went to Jon Girrior with 1-1 moto scores, making this his third overall of the year. Second went to Jacob Morrison with 5-2 moto scores, third place went to Josh Cennamo with a 3-4. Fourth place was Dylan Macritchie with a 7-5 and fifth went to Beau Viens with a 6-6 moto score. In the amateur division, Kevin Lobisser was awarded the $100 Kevin’s Cycle award.
