Bostrom and Jendro battle at District 23 Opener

Grantsburg, Wisconsin, April 4, 2004

Jacob Bostrom and Scott Jendro saw a lot of each other at the District 23 opener, dicing for the lead for a better part of all their motos. Jendro took two overalls, winning the 250 A and 16-24 A classes, while Bostrom took both motos in 125 A.

Jacob Bostrom (407) shreds the Parking Lot Berm in front of Scott Jendro (302) and James Easler (8).

The Straight Arrows had the sandy track looking deceptively smooth and easy prior to practice. With nearly 500 riders signed up to race, the track got rough early and it quickly became apparent who knew how to go fast in the sand. The track held a warm-up race the previous week, but this week it was for keeps and the turn-outs of each event reflected that.

The first 250 A moto saw John Dehn take the eary lead while Bostrom went down in the first corner. Jendro moved his Excel Motorsports/ Factory Connection / MXPrivateer.Net / Honda 450 into the lead and pulled away. Despite a fall, Dehn held onto a comfortable second. Quite a ways back, there was a good race for third with James Easler taking the spot over Kyle Love and Bill Medek. Bostrom was only able to make it back to 16th.

In the second moto, Bostrom and Jendro got off the line together and checked out. They stayed close to each other until the third lap, when Jendro began to pull away. Dehn was third most of the race, quite a ways back, but comfortably ahead of the fight for fourth. Rick Amatuzio held fourth until falling in the back section and taking a very long time to get going. With the two moto sweep, Jendro took the overall, followed by Dehn (3-2), Medek (5-4), Love (4-6) and Ryan Greening (7-5).

Another double winner on the day was B class rider, Chad Koenig. Koenig swept the 16-24 B and the 250 B classes. Koenig got out front early in the first 16-24 B race and was never headed. Ryan Toulouse held second early, but eventually fell back to fourth behind Wesley Von De Linde and James Lorr. The second moto was a bit more processional as Koenig took the holeshot and gapped the field. Von De Linde held off Lorr for second in the moto and overall, while Toulose was again fourth. A consistent 6-7 score landed Chas Kadlec fifth overall.

Wesley Von De Linde (412) wheelies through a Grantsburg whoop, on his way to second in the 16-24 B class.

The 85cc classes also saw a rider sweep two classes. Gannon Audette won the 85cc 7-11 and 85cc 9-12. Audette was comfortably out front in both of the 7-11 motos, but Eric Johnson pressured for a while in the 9-12 class, before falling back to a comfortable second. The other riders to win two classes covered quite a wide age range. Eric Anderson won the 50cc Chain 7-8 and 65cc 7-9 classes, Bruce Dehn won Schoolboy and 125B, and Jerry Dillon doubled up in the 40+ B and 45+ B/C.
