Terry Cunningham and Tim Shephard led an impressive group of Ohio’s and West Virginia’s greatest riders, as they crushed the competition at round one of the 2013 AMA Vintage Motocross and Vintage Hare Scrambles National Championship Series, presented by JT Racing.

The weekend’s most exciting race was the Post-Vintage Hare Scrambles National on Sunday. Four-time National Enduro Champion Terry Cunningham, southeastern Ohio’s greatest woods rider, put together an awesome charge to take the overall win by a bikelength over Ryan Persinger. T.C. trailed Persinger by 30 seconds at one point in the hour-long race, but when the pair took the white flag, Cunningham was on Persinger’s rear wheel, ready to strike.

The last lap featured intense action, as each rider dug deep, and after a bar-banging collision on the big downhill, Cunningham grabbed the lead. Persinger quickly recovered and had one more move to try. As they blasted down the short straight leading into the right-hander before the final turn, Persinger’s Honda tapped Cunningham’s rear wheel coming out of the turn. Then the two had to split to get around a lapper, and T.C. held the inside at the last turn to snare the win.

In 2011, the Action Sports Moto Park hosted a Vintage event, and Tim Shephard dominated the motocross and the hare scrambles. Last year, Shephard struggled to overcome bike issues and bad starts, and though he ran near the front, he still wasn’t the force he had been in 2011. But Shephard was fit and ready in 2013, and he took control early on in Saturday’s hare scrambles. After a convincing win, Shephard wheeled the Lancaster Sport Cycles-backed 1974 Yamaha YZ360 to a pair of wins on the motocross track, finishing off his perfect day.

Denny Swartz and Mike Bias also put on a great show on Sunday. Bias, from Ona, West Virginia, near Huntington, was blazingly fast, and he won the first moto in both the Evolution Super Senior Over 50 A class and the Decade A class, but a terrible start and a locked-up motor ended his charge in the Evolution class.

Big 4 Motorsports-backed Denny Swartz took the overall win in the class, and then the duo put on a great race in the final race of the day. Though they were running in different classes, first to the checkers was all that mattered to these two longtime competitors. After his win earlier in the afternoon, Swartz was on the charge, and the former Trans Am winner wore Bias down to take the overall win.

“It was a fun day,” Denny said after the win.

Bias, who hadn’t raced in 10 years, enjoyed the chance to race with one of his boyhood heroes.

“I have always looked up to Denny,” Bias said, “and to get a chance to race him and to beat him in the first moto is awesome! Finishing second to him – I’m happy with it.”

For the Vintage (1974 and earlier) Hare Scrambles, promoter Drew Wolfe and his sons Kyle and Ryan expanded the facilities’ Grand Prix track, adding miles of woods, which challenged the riders and made for great racing. The Action Sports Staff watered the course for days to combat the dry conditions, and the course was in perfect shape as the hare scrambles got under way.

“The Vintage bikes start with the motors running, in neutral, with the rider holding his clutch hand in the air,” explained AMA official Alex Hunter.

When the green flag dropped, Elmar Kruza blasted his beautiful CZ to the front, with the Penton of Belpre’s Gary Roach chasing him. Tim Shephard was right behind the leaders, but his first lap did not go well.

“I just rebuilt the motor and wanted to take it easy, to make sure it wouldn’t seize,” Shephard said. “Then I made a couple of little mistakes and dropped back to fourth or fifth.”

Roach’s Penton took over the top spot early on.

“I got a good start and then made a pass on Elmar Kruza for the lead,” said Roach, who then had a bike problem. “There is something wrong with the carb. It won’t take fuel on the main jet; it just bogs if I snap the throttle open.”

With Roach out front, Shephard was hammering his YZ360 toward the front.

“The track was good,” Roach said, “and once I got the pace going, I was able to ride a smooth race. I was able to hold Tim behind me for a couple of laps, but I went wide in a turn and he passed me.”

Shephard dived under Roach in the hairpin turn at the bottom of the big downhill, and Shephard’s YZ won the drag race up the biggest hill on the course .

“Tim was roosting me bad going up the hill,” Roach said, “and that was the last I saw of him.”

“I figured there must be something wrong with Gary’s bike, because he dropped back fast,” said Shephard, who rolled on to a solid win, although Roach actually cut into his lead on the last two laps.

“I figured out if I rolled the throttle on instead of pinning it, the bike would go, but it never got up on the main jet completely,” Roach said after his second-place finish.

Kruza claimed third overall with an excellent ride.

Tim Shephard’s fiftysomething knees were sore, but he decided to go motocrossing anyway.

“I started out a little slow, then just picked up the pace,” Shephard recounted. “I was trying to stay smooth and steady and forge my way forward.”

Eric Muffley led the race, and though he and Shephard were contesting different classes, racers only have one approach.

“If there is someone in front of me, I am not winning,” said Shephard. “Eric made a mistake, and I happened to be right there to take advantage of it, and took the win.”

Old rivalries never die: CZ vs. Husky.

Between motos Tim and his brother Greg needed to do some quick repairs.

“See the fork oil all over the front wheel?” Shephard asked. “We thought it was a blown seal, but they are okay. Then we checked the drain bolt on the bottom, and it wasn’t that. The bolt that holds the fork leg to the dampening rod had backed out. Luckily, it hadn’t separated during the race. Ray Dunaway of Ohio Moto Sports made us a tool to tighten it back up, and we should be good for the next moto.”

Riding 30- and 40-year-old motorcycles this hard puts a lot of stress on the equipment. After his win in the hare scrambles, Shephard found that his swingarm pivot bolt had loosened, but luckily it did not throw the chain.

When the second moto left the line, a 360cc Yamaha held the lead – but it was OMS-backed Tony Robinson, on a 1970 RT360. Robinson had suffered bike problems near the end of moto one.

“I had to pull off on the last lap,” Robinson reported. “The motor started to tie up.”

But Robinson wasn’t having any bike problems in moto two.

“We changed the jets, and it ran a lot better,” he noted.

Shephard was blowing up the berms, trying to catch Robinson, but he wasn’t gaining on him.

“Man, he was riding the wheels off that thing!” Shephard said. “You have to give him credit – he was flying!”

As the duo sped away from the field, the white flag waved, signaling one lap to go.

“I felt pretty good, but I figured Shephard was getting close, and I was just trying to hold him off and not beat up the bike too bad,” said Robinson, whose great ride ended short of the finish line, though, when the motor seized. “Just not enough at the end.”

Shephard claimed the win, but he appreciated Robinson’s efforts.

“I think it would have been a hard gig to get him on the last lap,” Shephard admitted.. “He surprised me. His bike has a fast motor, and he rode it hard.”

Tim Shephard never gives up, though.

“I started pushing hard near the end,” Shephard said, “and I would have tried some moves before the finish, though.”

Though he didn’t have his legendary Automatic Husky on hand, Terry Cunningham was sure to be fast in the Post-Vintage Hare Scrambles. The former National Enduro Champion got a good start, behind a pair of 1996 Honda CR250s.

Tim Shephard also started near the front, but he had an eventful first lap.

“When I saw the Hondas come out of the hole, I thought, ‘Oh boy, there they go,’ so I tried to make a move on T.C. back there in the woods, but couldn’t get by,” Shephard said. “Then I saw a big mudhole coming up and ducked my head to block T.C.’s roost, and the next thing I knew, I was up and over the bars.”

Out front, Ryan Persinger and Doneth Allan were swapping paint.

“He led me in the beginning,” said Persinger. “Then I got around him but he passed me back.”

For Allan, things were going well on the Honda-Suzuki of Warren/ 839 Racing/ Michigan Vintage Motocross-backed CR – but it didn’t last.

“About the midway point, I had a little run-in with a lapper, and I hit a tree,” Allan reported. “We were going pretty good, and when we caught the lapper, he went around the left side of the lapper; I tried to go around on the right. The lapper went right and pinched me off.”

Persinger has experience racing in the woods, including GNCC races, and he took control of the race after Allan’s fall. Persinger had a 30-second lead on T.C., who had passed Allan for second with about four laps to go, but T.C. was giving it everything he had.

“I fell in the trees on the start of the second lap,” Cunningham said. “I was having a hard time getting used to the track and was pushing too hard. After I fell, I told myself to just slow down. Then I started riding smooth. The new sections that Drew [Wolfe] added helped a lot; it tightened things up just enough.”

Cunningham gained a little on each lap. Then Persinger crashed.

“I was in the back section of the woods and was trying to go around a lapper,” Persinger recounted, “and my left hand caught a tree. I whiskey-throttled into another tree, and it knocked the wind out of me.”

While Persinger recovered, T.C. kept gaining on him.

“The woods gave me a little bit of an advantage,” Cunningham said. “He was going good through there, but he was going down in the dips, whereas I was wheeleying over them. I was making up a little time each lap.”

Cunningham was totally focused on the race, but he still took a second each lap to give his wife, Trini, a high-five as he blasted through the turn after the big hill, Wide open in a turn, and he takes his left hand off the handlebar to gently give his wife a high-five while cranked over in a turn? That kind of bike control is why Terry Cunningham is a better rider than just about anyone you or I know!

When Persinger took the white flag on the Barsracing.com/ Cycle Tech/ One Industries Honda, T.C. was right behind him, and the crowd starting running for the best viewing spots to follow the action. T.C. has won many races on the last lap, and he had a plan for if and when he caught Persinger – and it worked out pretty well for him.

“I had planned to try and get him over the uphill double before the big downhill and big uphill. I was hoping to outrun him up the hill. He goes good on the MX track, and the woods are pretty wide open, so that was the only plan I had,” Terry said with a laugh after the race.

As the riders approached the last third of a lap, with the win on the line, they reached the uphill double.

“I tried to go inside at the bottom of the uphill double and spun a little, and he went by me,” Persinger said.

“I figured he would push me outside into the little berm by the trees, so I backed off a little going into the turn and let him go by; then I cut under him as we got to the start of the downhill,” Cunningham explained.

The two riders were side by side going down the hill.

“I couldn’t get it stopped and ran into him,” Cunningham said. “I was doing everything I could to keep from wrecking him, turning my wheel inside and everything. When we separated, he went inside, and I was able to outpower him up the hill.”

Persinger kept the throttle pinned, and after they launched off the top jump, they blasted toward the 90-degree right-hander two turns from the finish line. T.C. held the inside line, and Persinger followed, and when they came out of the turn, Persinger’s front tire was bumping T.C.’s rear tire, setting up for the short straight before the last turn.

“I thought I could make a run on him right before the finish line,” Persinger explained.

A lapped rider was right in front of them, and Cunningham cut under the lapper and reached the checkered flag first – and then stopped to apologize to Persinger for running into him.

“Honestly, I kind of cut him off; it wasn’t his fault at all that he hit me,” Persinger said afterward. “I think Terry was faster than me pretty much through the whole woods section. If I had just gotten out of his way, he would have left me. It was a great race!.”

Shephard also charged hard all race long and was able to push the Lancaster Sport Cycles/ Sport Cycles Racing-backed YZ into third at the end.

“I kept pushing and pushing, but it looked like T.C. and I were riding about the same pace,” Shephard said. “I made one mistake too many, and he was riding good, so I couldn’t make up time.”

Tim Shephard placed third in the Post-Vintage Hare Scrambles.

Allan claimed fourth, despite another fall near the end.

“I don’t ride a whole lot of woods, but I enjoyed this race,” Allan said.

Cunningham and his family enjoyed the win, but the fans may have enjoyed it even more.

“It was a good race,” T.C. said with a smile.

Denny Swartz is the most successful motocrosser from southeastern Ohio, and he and Mike Bias put on a great show after the epic hare scrambles battle. They first tangled in the Evolution Super Senior Over 50 A division. Bias has always been unbelievable on a 125, and he grabbed a great holeshot on his YZ and ran away from the rest of the field.

“I give away a lot of horsepower to the big bikes,” Bias said, “but I try to make up for it with corner speed.”

Denny Swartz moved into second but wasn’t able to match Bias’ pace in the moto. “I struggled,” Swartz confessed. “I was missing shifts and things. Trying too hard to catch him. Mikey is awfully talented.”

For Bias, it was a great return to motorcycle racing.

“I tried to race once last year and blew my bike up, and it just sat around, torn apart,” he said. “Then Drew [Wolfe] kept calling me and giving me a hard time about it, so I finally got off my butt and put it back together, and here I am, ‘living the dream.”

After his win, Bias sported a smile a mile wide.

“I haven’t raced or ridden in a decade, and I am having a blast, man!” he said. “Racing gets in your blood and you can’t get it out.”

Later in the day, Swartz and Bias were in different classes but in the same moto, and again Bias nailed the holeshot, while Denny had to battle his way through traffic. Swartz had to use a lot of energy reaching second while Bias rolled out front.

“Yeah, those guys made me work hard to get up to second,” Swartz said. “I finally slowed down a little bit and was able to go faster; sometimes you rush and make mistakes.”

Bias kept an eye on Denny’s Yamaha for the rest of the moto.

“I was trying to pace myself to see where Denny was gaining on me,” Bias said. “He was catching me, and I was trying to see what lines he was using so I could change if I had to. I get more arm pump with the 250, so I was trying to conserve energy and still keep a lead.”

Bias took the win, with Swartz closing in, though Denny had a different view on the end.

“I was trying hard to catch Mikey, but I just didn’t have it,” he admitted. “I think he might have slowed down on the last lap. Still, it was a fun race.”

As perfect as things went for Bias in the first moto, the second moto was a different story. As the field tore through the first turn, Bias’ 125 was nowhere to be found.

“I had been timing the starting gate all day, and it worked out in the first set of motos,” Bias said. “I think they caught on to me. They held the gate longer and I bumped the gate hard. I don’t think I ever hit a gate so hard in all my years of racing. It took two of us to get the front wheel out from under the gate.”

Bias cranked it “up to 11” and was ripping his way through the field, but after two laps, his bike locked up.

“I think it might have spun the impeller shaft,” he conjectured. “The motor is super hot.”

Mike Bias (777) briefly leads Denny Swartz (54) in moto two before his bike stalled.

Denny Swartz always seems to ride even faster in the second moto, and he was pounding out laps that were some of the fastest of the day on his way to the win.

“I started feeling better, hitting my lines,” Swartz said. “I hadn’t ridden in a week or so, and it took me a little while to get going, but that moto, I felt pretty good.”

Swartz was dialed in for the final race of the day, and after a short battle with Bias, Denny was able to pull ahead.

“I stalled it and then I was gaining on Denny,” Bias said, “but I made about three big mistakes and got out of control and stalled it again. I was starting to get tired at that point, so I decided to take it easy and not crash so I can load my bike by myself and not need help getting home. Denny is so fast and so smooth. It was a great day, racing hard against one of my heroes.”

Mike Wheeler (850) drove all night to get back to Ohio in time to race on Sunday. He topped the Post-Vintage Motocross E2 201-250 B/C and E2 251-Open B/C classes.

Denny also enjoyed the battles.

“Today was a good day,” he said. “The track was really good, and it got better as the day went on. In the first motos, I really wanted to catch Mikey. I had my head down and was charging, but reality set in. In the second set of motos, I just rode smoother and calmer and was able to go faster. Sometimes it’s like that: Slow down to go faster.”

One rider who didn’t slow down all weekend was Brett Gatrell. He was untouchable on his JT Racing/ OMS Racing/Barsracing.com RM125. The only problem he had all weekend was a fouled plug on the starting line for the second moto on Sunday.

“Sometimes you have that with these old bikes,” Gatrell noted. “I wasn’t sure if we were going to get it changed in time.”

Brett Gatrell (1) leads Ryan Wolfe (11) in the E2 88-125cc A class on Sunday.

Gatrell didn’t get the holeshot, but he was right behind Ryan Wolfe’s Honda, and the pair battled hard for two laps before Gatrell was able to pull away for the E2 88-125cc A win – his fourth moto win of the weekend.

“The track was good,” he said. “It got rough, but there weren’t too many ruts, and it turned out perfect.”

Brett Gatrell (1) also won the E1 88-125cc A class in Saturday’s Vintage Motocross.
