Kale Hunt finished first in both heats of the 65cc-B class.

Locals sweep top spots in motocross event

Contributor J.R. Rardon on local success at a Campbell River motocross event

Kale Hunt, Mason Northey and Maxtin Northey of Port Hardy swept the top three spots in the 65cc B division to highlight the Tri-Port Motocross & ATV Club showing in the Vancouver Island Motocross spring series race at Campbell River track June 28.

Michael MacDonald, another Port Hardy rider, powered to a runner-up finish in a competitive Super Mini field.

The riders were part of a small delegation of five North Island riders on a hot, dry day that kept overall turnout at the track low.

Hunt finished first in both motos, or heats, in the 65cc-B class, with Mason Northey second each time. Mason’s younger brother, Maxtin, raced up a class to finish third in both motos.

Earlier, he placed third in the 50cc class among riders 7-8 years old.

Ryler Smith added a sixth-place overall showing in the 50cc division, finishing fifth in the first moto and sixth in the second.

MacDonald raced to second-place finishes in both his motos, behind division winner Joey Parkes of Nanaimo.

The Campbell River races wrapped up the VIMX Spring Series. The Island Club Series will kick off Aug. 28-30 with Round 1 and 2 racing at Tri-Port Track. The facility is located off Highway 19, across from Seven Mile Landfill between Port Hardy and Port McNeill.

Meanwhile, Campbell River will host Round 2 of the BC Championship series Aug. 1-2. More info is available at vancouverislandmx.com.
