The team headed north to Minot Maine for round 8 of the 2012 NEATV Series at Hemonds MX. It was a perfect weekend for racing… besides the traffic headed up 95. Travis still out of the Pro & Pro-Am class healing up after wrist surgery. It was Mark Gehring carrying the flag in the Pro-Am class. In Moto 1 he just narrowly lost the holeshot to Creamer, and was able to settle into 2nd place for a few laps before dropping one spot to 3rd where he would finish. In moto 2 he would finish a solid 6th place giving him 4th overall for the day and moving him into 3rd in the points. Mark along with Jesse Onesti were both in the 4-Stroke A which Mark was currently leading headed into the weekend and he would extend that points lead after a stellar show put on by the two of them. Mark would go 1-1 grabbing both holeshots and leading flag to flag and Jesse would go 3-2 giving Polaris the top 2 spots overall in the premier A class. In Open A, it was only Jesse, but that was all that was needed as he was able to hold off the field and also go 1-1. Jesse currently leads the Open A class. In the B classes, Cody Paolella kept his winning streak going winning all 4 motos and extending his points lead in both the 4-Stroke and Open classes. His Brother Kyle would finish 8th overall in 4-Stroke B posting a 3rd in moto 1 and had a get off in moto 2, but still managed a 12th.
In the C classes, rookie Eddie Bandel would go 1-8 for 5th overall in 4-Stroke C and extend the points lead, and then go 1-1 in Open C and take the points lead in the class, a significant feat since he missed the first round of the season. Kellie Moran holds onto her lead in the Womens class going 1-1, and had a solid showing in the Open C class getting out 2nd in moto 1 behind Eddie before getting stuck on a berm, came back to finish 9th, and then bettered in moto 2 finishing 6th. This coming weekend the team heads to Clifford PA for the second time this season to Hurricane Hills.
