    What a weekend for racing at the 32nd annual Motorama Arenacross and Speed Show at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa. A few changes to the track from the previous year made for some very exciting battles. The whoop section had three more jumps added. The double after the finish line was a bit smaller, and a small berm was added for the riders to rail their bikes around. The big double of last year was replaced by two smaller doubles. Normally this would make things easier, but with all the snow Central PA has seen this February, the dirt was very wet and difficult for the track crew to prep. Just walking around the arena made it feel like the track was a wet sponge. These track conditions gave even A class riders like Barry Carston and TJ Philips tons of trouble when trying to land the big double along the wall. Riders were casing the landing, and their front tires were driven five inches into the face, and the rider sent out over the handlebars. Luckily, nobody was seriously injured.

    The biggest talk from this year was TJ Philips absolutely flying around the

    arena floor. Even Barry Carston who has had his pro license after 19 years had nothing for him. TJ had a perfect weekend, sweeping both 250cc and Open A classes. In the Open B class, Paul San Felice took the win on Saturday, but he was unable to repeat that performance on Sunday. #3 Ritchie Kastle, who had a 3rd on Saturday, stepped it up and took the main event win. #724 Levi Leatherman and #555 Corey Recla took the wins in the 250 B class. Open 2w, Open C, and 250 2w C had some of the biggest rider entries of the weekend. Taking the gates were 19 riders from the Open class and 25 in the 250s. Ritchie Bunting had a good showing on Saturday in the Open C class by grabbing second place, but on Sunday he was able to take the top spot on the podium, edging out Colby Fisher. In the 250 C class, #121 Thomas Craig had put his head down on both days and took both main event wins.

    #34x Austin Johnson was also able to walk away with multiple wins, taking top honors in both 50cc 2w 4-6yr old classes on Saturday and Sunday. The

    #81 of Bobby Semelsberger stood on the top spot of the podium on both days in the Youth 65cc 7-9. Hot on his wheels all weekend was the #7 of Austin Daniels, taking the second place spots. Semelsberger was also able to win both mains in the 50cc

    7-8. #21 Ryan Clites took wins on both days in the Super Mini class over #941Calvyn Beck.

    Austin Johnson is 100% focused on the fastest lines around the track.

    Corey Recla soars to a win in the 250 B class.
