Path Valley Names Amateur Northeast Nationals Champions

Spring Run, PA - Two Wheel Promotions awarded Number 1 bike tags to the top riders in the northeast at the conclusion of the AMA Northeast Amateur Nationals Saturday at the Path Valley Speedway Park.

The awards were based on the riders' combined finishes in all three races in the AMA series - the Short Track held May 29, the Tourist Trophy scramble May 30, and the Half-Mile that rained out May 31 and was made up at Path Valley June 12.

Riders were awarded plaques, trophies and national honors for each of the three events and overall Northeast Championships and plates for the best combined finishes in all three.

Based on AMA grand national points, winners of each of the three feature races earned 23 points, with 19 points for second place, 16 for third, 15 for fourth, etc. Riders were permitted to enter up to three class events.

Several riders won all three of their features for perfect points scores of 69. Tops based on the number of competitors and number of wins was John Lewis V of Brandamore who won all three of his races in 250cc Mod 2-Stroke and all three in 450 Mod. He also won two out of three to take home the plate for the 505 Mod. Class. Cassidy Heiser of York won all three features in two classes. He won all the races in the 65 Modified class and then won all three features against stronger competition in the 65cc DTX class.

Joe Dohm of Red Lion bested a total of 9 riders in all three 40-plus Open features. Shayna Texter of Willow Street beat out four others for all three wins in the 85cc Mod. Events. Dylan Winsett of Bainbridge bested three other riders for all three feature wins in the 50cc PeeWee Shaft-drive events. Additional three-race champions included Austin Greenland of Spring Mills in 250 4-Stroke Mod., Cory Texter of Willow Street in 400 Mod., and Tyler Stacey of Akron in the 50cc Senior 7-8 class.

Produced by Two Wheel Promotions, the races for 28 classes of bikes and four-wheelers are recognized as official national amateur championships by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and winners in eight premier classes are awarded travel assistance to the 2004 AMA Progressive Insurance Dirt Track Grand Championships at the Illinois State Fairgrounds June 27 through July 4.
