Practice Photos from Hamilton SX

By Billy Rainford

We’re here at the final round of the 2018 Rockstar Triple Crown Series here at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. The Santa Parade has gone by and we’re all set for racing here tonight.

Here are a few photos from practice and qualifying.

250 Class

#415 Dario Zecca rounded out the 250 pro class, finishing in 16th spot.

#157 Wyatt Waddell is back in action after a concussion kept him away from Quebec City. He was 11th.

#55 Jack Wright has a new 250 teammate in Cade Clason. Jack was 10th.

#40 Guillaume St Cyr was having some fun over the finish line jump. He was 9th.

#66 Marco Cannella is at the top of most people’s lists for Rookie of the Year. He was 7th.

#725 Richard Jackson will likely move up once the gate drops tonight. He was 6th.

#9 Cade Clason made the 250 2-stroke sing and was up in 4th.

#3 Shawn Maffenbeier matched his number in 3rd.

#471 Logan Karnow is really trying to put himself up on the top spot of the podium. He was 2nd.

#15 Jess Pettis was up on top again this week. Rumours are swirling about where he’ll take his #1 plate in 2019.

450 Class

#93 Zack Zager is in action this week. He rounded out the 450 field in 14th.

Let’s see what #751 Donald “Donny T” Turner has in store for us on the starting line this week. He was 12th.

#645 Cheyenne Harmon qualified in 8th spot.

3-time Canadian champion #2 Matt Goerke could only muster a 7th.

#800 Mike Alessi is back, too. He was in the unseeded group and finished up in 6th.

#54 Phil Nicoletti looked solid out there and qualified in 4th. He’s got a chance at the SX title tonight, but he’ll need some help.

#16 Cole Thompson looked as smooth as ever out there and took 3rd spot. He’s your $100K man.

#393 Daniel Herrlein got squirrelly in a section and then goon rode for a while and still finished up in 2nd spot.

#5 Tyler Medaglia used the strength of his Movember ‘stache and took top spot.

It’s time for the Pit Party, so it’s time to go.
