The Youth and Morning ATV races from the Can-Am Unadilla GNCC in New Berlin, NY are complete. We apologize if the live timing and scoring link did not work, our server has been down since Hurricane Ike ran through Texas a few weeks ago. But we've found a new server and we will have live timing for the rest of the weekend (including out Afternoon ATV race).

Despite rain all day yesterday and today, the track is actually in great shape. This area hasn't seen rain in three weeks, so there's still dry dirt under the wet top layer today. The morning riders said it was a good track, but there will be a swamp section added for the afternoon racers.

Josh Merritt topped JD Welch and Ryan Ratliff for the Youth ATV overall today after a great back and forth battle.

In the Morning race, LTE Can-Am's Bryan Buckhannon won the Open 4x4 Class and the Morning Race Overall. Traci Cecco put together a come from behind win to top the Women's class on her Yamaha, with Stefanie Verkade taking second. Women's points leader Angel Atwell startd in last and was able to work all the way into the lead. She led on the last lap while Cecco was pitting for fresh gloves. Cecco was able to get around and go for the victory.

Afternoon race is about to begin. Stay tuned for live scoring.
