Pit Bike Junkie/Piranha Team RaceReport

Father/Son Team Makes History in State Series
October 28, 2013 – St. Louis, MO: Round 9 of theSho-Me State Pit Bike Series, the final race of the season, was held at Hwy65mx in Sedalia, MO. Coincidently this was also the final race ever at this facility as the track had been sold and was closing the following week.

Pit Bike Junkie Magazine co-founders, “Fantasy” Jim & James “Professor” Smoot had already won the track championship titles at Midway Speedway (5 rounds of racing) and the Professor had locked in the State Championship 12” Amateur title the previous weekend at Round 8 at Riverbottom MX in Osage Beach, MO.

“Fantasy”Jim had moved into the series lead in the Vet class when his #1 rival Doug“Nick Novice” Scrounce was a no show at Riverbottom, but it would take one more race to determine the State Champion Vet title. When Scrounce was once again a no show for the final race, “Fantasy”Jim, the world’s oldest pit bike racer would win the State Championship title before he even started his engine.

“With the pressure off it was time to just go out and have some fun” said “Fantasy”Jim who would finish the day with a 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] overall and claim two more hole-shots to also win the 2013 Hole-Shot King award with 15 hole-shots out of 18 motos for the season.

The duo, riding their new factory Piranha P190R-4V pit bikes had made history as the only father/son team to win State Championship titles in the same year since the beginning of the Sho-Me State Pit Bike Series in 2008.
