Round 4 of the 8 round 2020 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships was held this past Sunday at the Guam International Raceway in Yigo.

PRESS RELEASE – Round 4 of the 8 round 2020 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships was held this past Sunday at the Guam International Raceway in Yigo with strict Covid-19 safety protocols still in place. Racing once again kicked off at 11:30am after a morning of warm up practices. Classes ranged from several sized kids minibike classes along with a women’s minibike class up to the larger fuller sized machines of the 250, 450, Open and Over 40 Vet classes. Back on the track for the first time during this seasons championship campaign was the popular Open ATV class. The track was in great condition for some high flying racing with sunny skies and a nice cool breeze blowing off the ocean and the adjacent cliff line. The event was a non-spectator event due to the ongoing Covid-19 precautions, but immediate family members were in attendance and very much a part of the sunny fun day of competition and barbecues.

In the Open Atv class the reigning champ #1 George Santos aboard a blacked-out Kawasaki 450 beast ATV left no doubt that he was the reigning champ by grabbing the lead right off the start. Santos was quickly being followed by #88 Camillo Lorenzo on a loaned for the event Yamaha Raptor and by #4 Robert Bucek aboard the Cycles Plus Suzuki. As Santos surged away Lorenzo and Bucek fought it out early on with Bucek finally sliding by the Raptor of Lorenzo. Once past Lorenzo Bucek began to inch his way closer and closer to the leader Santos. With half the race left Bucek caught Santos and the two began to battle it out banging bumpers and nerfbars as they swapped positions back and forth. At the checkers it was Bucek taking the win with the #75 Raptor piloted by Lorenzo in second. Reigning Guam Open Atv champ Santos after taking a bad cart wheeling spill in the heat of the battle for first was still able to remount and limp in for a third place finish.
