Lake County Fair SX Results

The 26th annual Nielsen Enterprises Lake County Fair Stadium Motocross, just north of Chicago, went off last night without a hitch. Because of the increased Pro purse to $7500, up from $4000 in 2010, the event had 98 riders sign up to race. Some big name Arenacrossers were in attendance and the racing was excellent on the Schaefer Tracks built and promoted course.

Tuf/ Venning Honda's Jeff Gibson was the big winner as he took both the 250 and 450 Pro main event wins. Gibson took a wire to wire win in the 250 Pro class and then later ran down D&S Fox sponsored Josh Demuth to take the 450 win with a last lap pass.

Rock River Yamaha's Drew Yenerich was the big surprise as he finished on the podium in both mains, with a second on the 250 and a third on the 450. Arenacross veteran and local boy Tommy Hofmaster finished third in the 250 Pro class on his Rock River Yamaha and crashed out of the 450 main on the opening lap.

More racing tonight as night two, the final night, will take place with racing starting at 7pm
