Racing saw fierce competition from a trio of South Cariboo riders at the Prince George Blackwater Motocross Track, Sept. 15-16.
It was the last shot for Brad Perron, Patrick Griffin and Brandon Watrich to improve their standings in the Beginner MX-2 division in the North series of the Canadian Kawasaki/BCMA Motocross Championship Series.
Perron showed the confidence he has displayed all season and took first place both days and finished second overall in the North series.
Watrich had a couple of problems on day 1, which left him in ninth place, but he regained his ground on day 2 with a second-place showing. The strong comeback led him to a fifth-place finish in the overall standings.
Griffin finished a solid fourth on the first day of racing, and on day 2, prospects also looked good. He held third place through most of his last race before running into mud and suffering a crash, which knocked him into fourth place for the day and seventh overall in the series.
All three boys have the option to race in the remainder of the South Series events, which includes one race in Kamloops at the end of September and wraps up Oct. 14 in Ashcroft.
