027

May 20, 2013 – St. Louis, MO:

Mudville USA was host to the big Pit Bike Party Weekend event & season opener (round 1) of the ShoMe State Pit Bike Series in Bourbon, MO.

Piranha rider Jake “the Assassin” Payne (2013 Arenacross Series Champion) had an epic Pro-class battle with Josh “the Snake” Garner (2012 ShoMe Series State Champion). Garner was out powered by the Daytona mounted Piranha rider and Payne quickly disposed of his competition finishing nearly ½ lap ahead of the field.

In the always exciting & competitive 12” Am. class…Hank “Hot-Shoe” Cahill (fresh off of his impressive results at the Mini Moto World Finals in Vegas) took the holeshot in both motos and never looked back. Piranha team riders James Smoot & Cody Dempsey battled it out every lap trading places until Dempsey edged out Smoot to finish 2nd & 3rd respectively.

In the popular Vet class…Pit Bike Junkie Publisher ”Fantasy” Jim (the world’s oldest pit bike racer) took the holeshot in both motos but a failed rear brake system after the 1st lap in moto 2 prevented the “old guy” from finishing on the podium, ending up 4th overall.

1st place Pro – Jake “the Assassin” Payne – Holeshot Award (both motos)
1st place 12” Am – Hank “Hot-Shoe” Cahill – Holeshot Award (both motos)
