Here are some pictures from Friday night’s races. Skylar finished 2nd overall for the night.

You’ll notice that all the pictures are of #15, Skylar Petersen, age 13. He’s my grandson.

This is Skylar’s first year of competing in motocross racing.

He competes in the 85cc Beginners Class at Plaza Cycle Motocross Park, Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley, Utah.

He’s currently in first place in the point standings for the season in his class.

Next year he’ll compete in the 85cc 12 to 15 year olds class.

He has led in the point standings since the first race of the season.

As the season enters the home stretch, the points race is starting to tighten up.

The riders who have raced in most of the races have gained a lot of experience, and are no longer really “beginners.”

At the end of the year a nice trophy will be awarded to the rider with the most points, and Skylar wants that trophy.

If he can keep riding clean races and stay out of trouble, I like his chances.

So does he.

Here he is crossing the finish line in 2nd place. He finished 3rd in the first race and the combined result is 2nd place overall for the night. This performance keeps him in first place in the point standings in his class for the season.
