AZOP Rowley White RV Series, Rounds 4 and 5, Payson, AZ

After a seven-month layoff due to COVID-19 and the related permitting issues, AZOP's Rowley White RV Series made a triumphant return to action in 2020 with two races on consecutive weekends at the ever popular rodeo grounds in Payson, AZ. With sponsorship from Nash Powersports, Five18 Designs, and GO AZ Motorcycles both races were able to take advantage of the perfect weather, proximity to town, and ample spectating and racing opportunities provided by the fan-favorite location. The layout of the track was similar to what AZOP did for the Payson event in October of 2019, with a short-course feel that took elements from motocross tracks and featured a majority of man made obstacles. A section of unimproved single-track on the hills above the rodeo arena was included for the Big Bikes to bash through.

While from a distance the double-header may have appeared to be a normal event, the mood in the pits - especially during the first weekend - was one of cautious celebration; a much-needed return to normalcy for many folks who had been cooped up at home much longer than expected. Many competitors wore nervous smiles as they went through tech or warmed up an engine before practice, and it was clear that a large portion hadn't taken to a track in anger since AZOP's season was suspended in early March. The youth classes especially had an air of excitement around them as several regular competitors were riding or driving totally new vehicles or even competing in totally new classes.

The Big Bikes had the honor of being the first major race of the first weekend and it was Drake Hacker taking the wire-to-wire win on his 2-stroke KTM over James Clark and Kyler Heimer on Saturday. Hacker would repeat the feat on Sunday, followed once again by Clark. Austin Alexander put in a good ride to get third overall and win the Open A class.

In the Big Quads/ATV's race it was Nick Helton taking the top podium spot on Saturday, followed closely by Koby Dodson and Sean Johnson. Sunday saw Evan Spooner swoop in for the win, relegating Helton to second. Ron Suor took third.

In the Big UTV race it was Abe Martinez bringing his naturally aspirated Yamaha YXZ across the line first on Saturday, followed by Paul Obrien and Timothy Kern. Kern would return with vengeance in mind on Sunday and get the win, followed by Obrien once again in second and Daniel Hurn rounding out the top three.

For the second weekend of racing a few changes were made to the track with some new obstacles added and - most notably - a different entry point for the big bikes to get into the single track section; something the promoters hoped would help to mitigate a nasty bottlenecking issue from the first weekend. The weather was predictably great with temperatures hovering in the high 70's most of the day and the track had been watered and prepped continuously in the days prior to the race, which helped to mitigate dust and traction issues throughout the weekend.

The Big Bikes were first up once again on Saturday and this time it was Collier Martinez taking the overall win while competing in the 125/250cc A class. Dominic Dugi finished second overall and Dayton Raper took home third. On Sunday it was Kyler Heimer getting the win, followed by Raper in second and Tate Van Voorst in third.

Ron Suor got the Saturday win in the Big Quads/ATV's race, followed by Abe Martinez in second and Ransom Martinez in third. Suor turned in a weekend sweep by taking the overall win again on Sunday. Scott Yarber got second and Ransom Martinez made another appearance on the podium with another third place finish.

The Saturday Big UTV race was exciting with Chris Leaming eventually taking the win by 4 seconds over Paul Obrien. Abe Martinez rounded out the top three. It would have been hard to imagine going into the event, but the final race of the double-header would end up being one of the closest finishes in AZOP history. Starting from the back of the field in the naturally aspirated class, Bo Radavich worked his Polaris RS1 through the field and avoided potential issues all over the course to eventually finish first on elapsed time with a margin of victory of only 0.04 seconds! Jeremiah Scott took home second place honors and Neil Carse took third.

Despite the severely condensed schedule dictated by COVID-19, there are still plenty of racing opportunities left in 2020. AZOP will be holding as many events as possible over the last two months of the year. Head over to www.azopracing.com to look at the official schedule and take note that event dates and details can change due to event restrictions and the concerns of public health officials. AZOP is committed to the health and safety of all racers, spectators, and staff and will continue working to hold events in a manner that encourages fun and competition without compromising anyone's health.

As always AZOP would like to thank all of the sponsors, staff, volunteers, racers, and spectators for making this another successful and fun weekend of racing. For full race results, videos, and photos or to find out about upcoming events go to www.azopracing.com.
