Motocross

Riders hammer on the gas as they jump out of the starting gate at Powder Basin Motocross Track earlier this season during a South Dakota Motocross Association event. Powder Basin Motocross hosted its Triple Crown races this weekend in Gillette.

Powder Basin Motocross hosted its final event of season over the weekend with the Triple Crown races in Gillette.

The two-day event included races for four-wheeler riders, veterans, women and the normal motocross racers. It was a combination between High Plains and South Dakota motocross associations and a Tri-State Dirt Riders event, which drew competitors from Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska and the rest of Wyoming.

Powder Basin Motocross President Wes Hoffman said it was a great weekend, with the only issue being the extreme heat. The track held up well during practice Friday and for the races Saturday, but the staff really struggled to keep moisture on the track after midday Sunday — when temperatures near 100 degrees were recorded.

However, with COVID-19 shutting down events across the country and the region, racers were just happy to get onto the track. Hoffman said there have been some races in South Dakota and Montana, but Gillette has been one of the few options for motocross.

"They came to Gillette just because we were one of the few areas that were holding races," Hoffman said.

Powder Basin Motocross hosted an event in June, before the Triple Crown races over the weekend. Sometimes it holds events until early August, but Hoffman said it was nice to be able to host races at all this summer.

"It was great to be able to host some races and be able to get some in. I know there are other tracks that are struggling here in Wyoming that don't even know if they'll be able to hold their races," Hoffman said. "It's great to have a facility to host the races."

Hoffman also added Powder Basin MX "had tons of help this weekend from the community." From different businesses to all the volunteers working at the track, he said "we're super grateful for all those people."

"It's been a super great year," Hoffman said.

The Triple Crown races began Saturday and finished up Sunday afternoon. Results for both days are listed below.
