The boys and girls of summer made their first stop on the IWA tour in Moose Lake over the weekend. Racing seemed to jump right back into the swing of things with riders going all out creating a more mid-season tempo racing atmosphere. Some riders picked up right where they left off , others seemed to let the cobwebs of the first race affect their performances.

Moose Lake proved to be more of a race that set the tone for a few riders while showing others that this season will be tough as ever to make it to the top. In all, the weather was a little gloomy on Saturday, but the racers and IWA crew pulled off yet another successful race weekend.

The next stop is Brainerd International Raceway coming up on June 11-12th. Please visit iwaracing.com for more info.

Brian Kormanik had a good weekend but came up a little short when it came to the finals on Sunday. Even on the ride of shame, he was still in good spirits for next weekend.
