    Yea he was in bad shape for a while. Sad. Good kid at heart. Many days spent with him riding. He was a great mini rider and had a big heart. He just went down the wrong path following our youth. He will be missed.

    Laney Loves DirtWorld
    AMA District 12 Fall Series, Rnd 3
    DirtWorld Motocross Park
    Dorset, Ohio Sept. 23
    By: John Kreps
    www.pitracer.com

    Round Three of the District 12 Fall Series rolled into Dirtworld Motocross Park, with local dealer Yamaha of Warren as the title sponsor of the event. Not only did they erect a fine dealer display of 2002 model bikes, quads, and gear, but they also awarded the top five in each class with Yamaha of Warren gift certificates that could be spent on the spot at their display.

    It was only fitting that the dealers' top rider, Warren Laney, put on a great show on his way to taking the victories in both the Schoolboy and 125B classes. While the first round of motos came relatively easily to the young rider, his second 125b moto would prove the heart this young man carries with him. Though his start was near the front in fifth place, Laney slid out on the first lap and was down a long way in the back before remounting his FCR-suspended YZ125. Once remounted however, Laney set a blistering pace and worked through the pack with a steady fortitude that saw him catch leader Mike Camilly Jr. with one lap remaining. Camilly was not about to give up the lead easily, and wringed his YZ250f for all it was worth down the long straights. This was Laney's day though, and he found his way around the thumper and soldiered on to the checkered flag, a mere bike length in front of the persistent Camilly. The two riders knew this race was a spectacle to observe as they congradulated each other happily.

    Also winning two classes in come from behind fashion was Stongsville's Carl Schlact, who put his UFO backed KX250 on top of both the 16-24 Collegeboy and 250B classes, besting Rich Hudak in Collegeboy and the KTM thumper of arch rival "Rocket" Robin McClain in the 250B. McClain took his share of Yamaha of Warren Bucks as well, winning both the Plus 25 and the Vet Plus 30 divisions.

    In staying with the Yamaha trend of the title sponsor, the top five places in both the Senior 85cc and SuperMini classes were Yamaha mounted. Andy Sczypta's YZ80 was the one in front of both of these hotly contested classes, with Sam Isabel, the Duma brothers, and John Householder rounding out the top five in both classes in varying spots. In the smaller mini action, rivals Michael Blaumann and Kyle Ditcher went one-two in both the 65cc and Junior 85cc classes, each taking one of the classes. Zachary Knotts continued stepping to the top of the podium in District 12 with a win in the Junior 50cc class, and Todd Krieg put his Polini 50cc racer on top of the Senior division.

    In Quad action, Tyler Sarai put his Blaster in front of Josh Peachy for a hometown win, and Denny Kirkland and Ryan Ogram won the 2-stroke and 4-stroke classes, respectively. Mike Reiser took home the win in the Novice class on his yellow Honda thumper, and put on a great jumping show for the crowd, clearing many of Dirtworld's large double and triples.
