Warnert Snocross Racing Team heads to ERX Motosports Park For ISOC Ronds 11 and 12
Heavy in the Head That Wears the Crown ISOC headed back to ERX Motor Park for Rounds 11 & 12 of Snocross racing. Teams were met with a clockwise track that would prove to shake up results and provide the full grandstands with plenty of action! The Pro Class would have a unique spin with the introduction of Triple Crown format. The outcome is a new look in the Pro points battle!
Francis Pelletier has been stricken with bad luck throughout the entire season. More than anything, he needed a solid weekend to get himself back on track, and the Triple Crown format was the catalyst to his effort. Friday night, the 220 was a consistent force, being one of the only sleds to consistently make through the first corner. Frank went 2-3-5 and earned himself P2 overall! Saturday night would not be as straightforward. In the first round of the Pro Triple Crown, Francis’s track was sliced by a carbide which would ultimately detonate – resulting in a DNF. With the odds stacked against veteran mechanic Nate McConnell, he was able to get a hot rod back up to the starting line in under 40 mins for round 2. Francis proceeded to notch a P2 finish, and followed up going wire to wire, winning round 3! Frank ended the weekend with a pair of silver medals, putting him only 5 points out of 3rd place!
Jordan Lebel has been surrounded by a tangible pressure since the beginning of the season. A heat two wreck put Jordan in the back row for the Friday night Pro Lite Final. Lebel and the #413 of Evan Daudt had the entire ERX venue on the edge of their seats. After running through the pack, Lebel searched for an opportunity to make a clean pass for the lead, but time had run out. Silver would have to suffice for Round 11. The “streak” was broken, but Lebel was not done for the weekend. As a new day dawned and the pressure washed away, the 511 was taking no prisoners. In the round 12 Pro Lite Final, Jordan Lebel set the stage for a story we have seen many times before. Lebel ripped the holeshot and disappeared, leaving no doubt in his 11th win of the season!
Naeli Lebel has been a model of consistency all season. The 15 year old Pro Women sophomore has drawn a line in the snow between the top 5 and the rest of the field. This weekend, Naeli was great off the line, stacking up some great heat race results. The 518 recorded back to back 5th place finishes in both her finals!
Dylan Lebel had quite the weekend, starting off with wins in both the Jr. 14-15 and Sport Lite finals! On Saturday, the Weapon was able to double dip on his Jr. 14-15 result, sweeping the weekend! In the Sport Lite Final D-Man had a tough off, resulting in P14. All in all, The Weapon had a stout weekend and gained some great momentum heading into the final two weekends of racing!
Thank you to all of our sponsors for their support this season! The team will enjoy an off weekend before finishing off the last stint of racing in Cannonsburg, MI and Dubuque, IA!
