Springville, IN (6/19/2012) – The 2012 Blingstar AMA MAXC ATV Racing Series headed to Springville, IN for round four of the ten round series. Ryan Lane would take his third win of the season followed by Jay Humphrey and Kevin Cunningham rounding out the AA Quad Class Podium.Round 4 marked a special event for the Blingstar AMA MAXC ATV Racing Series; the second annual Riley Children’s Hospital Miracle Race. All of the proceeds from MAXC round 4 were donated to Riley’s Children’s Hospital, which help children in need.

The race was held at Lawrence County Recreational Park which also played host to GNCC round 6. For MAXC round 4 however, a new course was laid out and incorporated open field sections, woods, a few hill climbs, and a rock jump. The weather forecast called for 60% chance of thunderstorms throughout the day. Luckily the thunderstorms held off only raining for five minutes which cut down on the dust for the Youth ATV race.

DC Motorsports Ryan Lane and Ray Humphrey were side by side off the start heading into the woods. Lane was able to make the pass before heading into the woods to take the lead.

“We were dead even going into the wood line. I knew I had to be up front or I wouldn’t have a chance to win and that’s what I did. The first lap was a little tough because there are so many trails out here. I had to be real careful to watch for the arrows so you knew were to go even without the dust. I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like in the dust.” Said Ryan Lane

“I got in behind my cousin Raymond (Humphrey) off the start. He took kind of a ditch route and I got around him there. I tried to run Lane down but he kinda checked out on us. Then Kevin (Cunningham) caught me on the last lap and I thought I would have a hard time holding him off but I lucked out and kept him behind me.” Explained Jay Humphrey.

Kevin Cunningham didn’t get a great start and had to work his way through the dust from the back of the pack

“After pitting for fuel, I through a CamelBak on because I was dying for water. I started putting the hammer down trying to catch these guys. I finally caught up Jay (Humphrey) and I have him a pretty good run for his money but we will settle for third for the conditions.” Said Kevin Cunningham.
