ECS Round 2 – Fonda, NY

Presented by Ingles Performance

Story and photos by Bruce Gaspardi Jr.

Round 2 of the East Coast SnoCross series rolled into Fonda Speedway, located just off of rt 90 in Fonda, New York.

If you watch the news at night, there is plenty of talk about global warming; one thing is for sure weather played a big role in this weekend’s racing.

On Saturday it started out in the high 20s, the pits were icy and the track hard. By the time racing had started the temperature was in the 30s and climbing with rain starting off light and getting heavier as the day progressed. To top it off, mid afternoon fog started to rise off of the track and it made for some interesting conditions. Rain progressed through the night, however, Sunday was a nice, in the mid 30s, windy, and a light flurry of snow in the air; puddles started to form in some of the deeper holes and it was very challenging for even the most seasoned riders. ECS was on top of their game though, moving snow and water around to make sure the track was as good and safe as possible all weekend long which made for some great racing in front of stands packed with fans both days.
