Ryan Earnest Captures 13-17 Win using Outstanding Driving
Ryan Earnest and his team have won a number of rounds in SEJRA competition. Collecting some hardware along the way, Ryan has earned a name for himself at any event. Sunday he added to that list as he was able to take hom the 13-17 Age Group win.
In the finals he met up with fellow Middle Tennessee Race Dylan Webster. Both drivers were good on the tree, but Ryan's nearly perfect .007 light put him out in front. He was able to back into Dylan at the stripe and earn the race win with a pedaling 7.983 on his 7.93 dial.
Congratulations to Ryan and his team on a hard fought victory!

In the finals Lexi brought her Huddleston Performance powered machine to the line against Music City regular Jason Bowman. Lexi was first out of the gate by 6 hundredths of a second and was able to turn that into a win. Her pedaling 9.016 beat out Jason's break-out 8.866.
Congratulations to Lexi and the entire Tanner team on a great win!
Vester Takes Home First SEJRA Victory in 8&9 Year Olds on Sunday
Keaton Vester made his first race with the SEJRA this season a memorable one as he captured the win in the 8&9 Year Old class. He fought through a good size field of 8&9 Year Old Competitors to take home the custom hardware!
In the finals Keaton met up with Nashville local Matthew Brock and his Junior Specialties powered ride. Matthew took a big starting line advantage, but was unable to close up the finish line enough. His break out gave Keaton the win as he ran a nice 11.932 on his 11.90 dial.
Congratulations to Keaton and his team on a great victory!
Devin Isenhower Dominates Saturday Portion of SuperNationals, Collects All-Run and 7.90 Index Wins
It is no secret how good of a racer Devin Isenhower has become over the past few seasons. Collecting wins in nearly every series on the East Coast, Devin again flexed his muscle during Saturday's portion of the Motivatonal Tubing SuperNationals. He not only collected the 7.90 Index victory early in the day, but he also found the Winner's Circle in the $1,000 All-Run class as well!
In the 7.90 Index race Devin met up with local standout Tiffany Snoddy. Both drivers were good on the starting line, but it was Devin taking the lead with a nice .012 light. That would be more than enough for him to pedal his way to victory, as his 7.927 beat out Tiffany's 7.919.
In the $1,000 All-Run class Devin met up with surprise finalist, young Carson Emmett. Carson took his 12.60 car and marched his way through a tough field of older competitors, however Devin would be too much in the finals. Devin took the starting line lead with a nice .038, then in a double break-out he was able to capture the win light. His 7.890 on the 7.90 took home the victory.
Congratulations to Devin and his team on a great weekend.
Mia Schultz Continues Great 2014 Season, Takes Home 8.90 Index Race Win
Mia Schultz and her family have been racking up the round wins in 2014. Not only in the SEJRA, but all over the country, Mia has been tough for anyone to handle. The Motivational Tubing SuperNationals was no different.
In the finals Mia brought her Huddleston Performance Turn-Key car to the starting line to face off with Bryanne Brock and her Junior Specialties powered machine. Mia took a sizeable starting line advantage and carried that all the way through the lights. Mia's dead-on 8.901 left Bryanne no room to capture the win light.
Congratulations to Mia and her team on continuing an outstanding season!
Carson Emmett Stays on a Roll, Collects Second Race Win of 2014 This Time in 11.90 Index

In the finals Carson met a familiar face as he match-uped with Music City native Shelby Thurman. Shelby took the starting line advantage by over 4 hundredths of a second, but was unable to hold on. Her 11.863 pass was just under the 11.90 Index, giving Carson and his great 11.911 the race win.
Congratulations to Carson and his team on a great race win!
