NGPC Rd.4 – 29 Palms – 04/10-04/11 2021 – Purvines Racing

Justin Seeds – VET Pro – 1st place

Justin took the lead and ran away with it. He rode good the entire race and kept it consistent to the finish. Another valuable day for him in the points. 
In his words: “NGPC started off well, came out with a second place start after starting on technically the second row because I got there late I was able to make the pass fairly early due to Tilley crashing unfortunately, but I was able to kind of pull away and get comfortable lead and pretty much rode comfortably to the win it was nice to rebound after a couple bad weekends.”

Mason Ottersberg – Pro 250 – 4th place

Mason put it down in the 3rd turn on the start having to come back from last place(23rd). He fought hard working up to 12th on the first lap and from there earning his 4th place position by the end. Obviously less than ideal, but he salvaged solid points putting him in the fight for a championship still. 
 In his words: “I am happy with my recovery after the start I had. It has been a tuff streak of being off the podium, but my pace was there during the race, just some bad luck. Looking forward to the next round.”

Ava Silvestri – Womens Pro – 4th place

It was Ava’s first time in 29 palms and if anyone knows how unique this track is, knows how intimidating it can be. She pushed her comfort zone and was close to finishing on the box, but settled for 4th. Another great round for her as she shows more growth and potential to be successful in her long career she has ahead of her. 
In her words: “Super fast track this weekend out in 29 Palms. Still trying to get used to all this highspeed stuff which really isn’t my style of racing at all, but I’m still having a lot of fun getting better every race. For me a 4th was all I had this weekend. Was about 20 seconds off 3rd the whole race but couldn’t get myself to push past what pace I was going at. That’s racing and all we can do is look forward to the next round.”

Caitlyn Kurtz – Womens Open A – 2nd place

Caitlyn rode extremely well during Sundays race. Pushing through the pro section and putting solid laps together to finish 2nd in women’s 4 stroke open A. 
In her words: “I had a mid pack start and a steady race on Saturday and finished 5th in the Women’s Expert class. Sunday I got a great start but crashed in the pro section on the first lap. I got up and going as quick as I could and managed to be steady and consistent the rest of the race, and because of that, I was able to take second in the Women’s Four-Stroke Open A class!”
