Ironman Race Report: WMX, Pro Sport & Pro-Am
CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (May 23, 2022) - As the series reaches the halfway point of the 2022 season, Pro Sport remains to be one of the most intense races of the weekend as up and coming riders battle relentlessly in this premier class that is stocked with many of tomorrows pro’s. Here at Ironman things would remain ultra-competitive offering racing that is on par with any class on the schedule on a track that allowed the spectators an excellent view off the action.
Joseph Chambers has been fairly consistent in Pro Sport finishing off the podium however he remained in the top five.The Ironman must have been to his liking as he ripped to a 1-1 for first overall marking his first overall of the year.
Dane Molander is one of those riders you like to watch race as his style and speed keeps everyones attention when he is on the track. In heat one, Molander would find himself locked into a fight with Brett Musick for the win. Molander would come out on top and then take second in the second moto for second overall.
Lane Baird would probably like to forget the first four rounds of racing as the 2022 season had not shown him any love. Baird turned things around at Highpoint and he would continue his climb in the finishing order here at Ironman taking a well-earned third overall.
The WMX class here at Ironman came into its own as the track played well into the class and offered an exceptional set of moto’s for everyone in attendance.
Andrea Berger put in two great moto’s going 2-1 for the Overall. Berger has only landed off the podium at one round this season as she carries growing momentum heading into the remaining rounds. She currently sits second in WMX points and is only two points behind the class leader.
Kinsey Osborn came out swinging in the first moto, taking the win and would back that up with a solid third in moto two. Osborn currently holds the class points lead and has not finished off the podium this year! The points battle in this class is heating up and every moto counts.
Niamh Shaw would have a good day here at Ironman as she leaves Indiana with third overall after going 3-2. Shaw joins Osborn as she as well has not had a finish off the podium after five rounds behind her.
Then on Sunday, Pro-Am racers took to the course with Dane Molander coming back out with a dominate performance as he battled to go 1-1 in the class. Aaron Salinas would try to put a stop to Molander’s winning ways, but he would finish 2-2 on the day for second overall in the class. Paolo Galizzi made his way onto the podium once again with a 3-4 finish for third overall in Indiana.
Andrew Schadtle and Agostino Abbatiello would round out the top five Pro-Am finishers on the weekend at Ironman Raceway.
The series gets geared up to tackle Sunset Ridge and turn out is expected to remain high. With an epic dual expected in the Pro class, the premier amateur classes will once again keep spectators glued to the fences as these everyday heroes put down the best laps of the weekend.
