Big weekend on the Pro/Am side of racing with the Wisconsin Tangent Pro/Am going down alongside Pro/Ams in Salt Lake and Molalla, Oregon.
In Wisconsin, Daylight Cycles’s Corben Sharah took the win and a check for $3500 with Anthony Dean grabbing 2nd ($2000) and Nic Long 3rd ($1200) to round off the podium. On the women’s side, Haro’s Brooke Crain took the $1750 check for the win. Both Corben and Brooke also took the extra $100 Answer Holeshot checks for the day’s work.
Over in Salt Lake, Legacy Raceway BMX had a $4000 purse with Jake Peebles taking $1100 for the the win and over in Oregon Jeff Upshaw took the win and $1200 plus another $200 for the Holeshot Award.
Not a bad pay weekend for the Pros. Will Pro/Ams be the future for Pro racing in the US? Maybe it’s the way forward? The Pros can make some money while promoting and interacting at the local and state programs around the country.
