The Full Throttle "Wild Turkey 100" was held at Plaster City East this year on a windy Saturday morning. There were only 65 sign-ups, but other than that, the race was a huge success. It went off smoothly, without any major problems, and with no serious injuries to anyone.
The course ran east from the gypsum plant, paralleling Evan Hewes Highway for a time, then veered north across some new ground, finding its way to the "Snow Cones", then Tucker's Trench, then breaking out onto several very long stretches of the flattest, fastest places that exist in the area. Of course, all of the flat parts are connected together by ugly, ragged parts, and these were augmented by the recent rains. There were plenty of deep, nasty cross-cuts and other surprises to keep the riders on their toes.
The overall win went to Kenton Prather on a 250. Last year, Kenton was the kid on the 150 Honda who wouldn't go away. Now he's on the bigger bike, you'll see more of him. His win didn't come without competition, though. Carey Lincoln led the race from the start, not surrendering the lead until the second lap around the 25 mile course.
Most of the Full Throttle club was working the race, but some rode. Tyler Henschel (32Q) has been making his mark since moving to the front line, and he beat defending champ Gabe Rascon (1Q) to the line again this time to take the Quad class win. Josh Nichols (55Q) followed with a second in Quad B, and Marc Cruz (78x) picked up 5th in 250 Novice. Steve Penner took a win in the Quad Vet class, too. Congratulations, Steve.
