Blount/Washbon Memorial event highlights Crusaders Motorcycle Club’s racing season
The Crusader’s Motorcycle Club’s feature competition of the season, the Pat Blount/Les Washbon Memorial event, was held this past Sunday at the Culvert Road track.
Over 180 riders took part in the day’s competition including racers from Washington state, Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Maryland and Australia.
However, it was local rider Ryan Wells who led the parade of winners as he scored a big sweep winning the 450 Expert Premier, Open Expert and Grand Prix classes.
“It’s nice to see him back at his hometown track,” said event sponsor Rhonda Waters. “He’s a front runner and the former 2016 champion in the AFT series and has years of racing at the Crusaders track and many Western New York venues to thank for his talent and skill level. We have a little gold mine in Medina and have some fast kids racing here coming up through the ranks, The talent that comes from this track is helping fuel the resurgence of Motorcycle Flat Track racing to a national and international spotlight.”
The event was co-sponsored by Waters Autobody and Paint, the Blount Family and Karen Washbon to memorial two individuals who had a great impact on motorcycle racing in this area, Pat Blount and Les Washbon.
The top three finishers in each class were as follows:
