Dicks Racing Team Riders Go 1-2-3 @ Idaho City ISDE Qualifier

June 03rd, 2013

A 120 mile course featuring endless single track whoops done frontwards on day 1 and backwards on day 2 could not stop the freight train known as the Dicks Racing Team. Wherever these guys go, they are trouble for the competition.This weekend was no different.

Day 1 had 6 special tests, of which, Ross Neely won them all. 2nd for the day was World Trophy Team member and ISDE Gold medalist Jordan Brandt, riding a borrowed Husaberg with Dicks suspension. Behind him was Vaughn Wilk, despite doing a big getoff in the 4th specialtest, hung tough to the finish.

Day 2 saw more of the same from Neely, winning all four special tests for the day. Behind him, the order reversed, with Wilk claiming 2nd and Brandt 3rd.

After 2 full days and 240 miles of racing, scores are added together to determine the overall finish positions. Clearly, Neely dominated the action making it 3 big wins in row(see previous news articles). His teamates, Wilk and Brandt claimed 2nd and 3rd Overall respectively. They all had 1 thing in common, great suspension. At a race like this, you can't pretend to have stuff that works, either it does or it doesn't. In this case, the results do the talking. Next up is the National Hare Scrambles in Oregon in July, stay tuned for more race action...

Dicks Racing Team Rider Ross Neely Wins Virginia City GP…. Again

April 29th, 2013

Ross Neely won the VCGP for the forth time of his young career aboard his Mach 1 Motorsports sponsored Yamaha WR450. The machine has proven to be ultra-reliable and very versatile, winning events at Moto tracks, National Hare scrambles and now Virginia Cty. The list of victims featured a stellar cast of riders, including H&H / Baja Champ Kendall Norman, D-36 / Hare Scrambles Champ Brian Garrahan, current D-36 #1 Justin Bonita, and last years winner Rodney Spencer. Once into the lead, Ross piloted his superior suspended machine to a staggering 8 minute victory. This marks his second win in a row and third of the season. His teamate, Vaughn Wilk showed up last minute, started last and blindly worked through the dust to 5th overall at the 3 hour mark. Unfortunately, his foam tubes melted from the abuse and he could continue no further. These two riders head for the Idaho City Qualifier next, so stay tuned for more race action...

Team Rider Ross Neely Wins National Hare Scrambles

April 16th, 2013

At the Shasta Dam GP, a combined event that was round 3 of the National Hare Scrambles series and round 7 of the D-36 X-Country series, Mach 1 / Dicks Racing sponsored Ross Neely won the the battle of off-road supemacy. In the process, he defeated round 1 winner Gary Sutherlin by almost 2 minutes, current D-36 champ Justin Bonita by over 2 minutes and current National #1 Cory Graffunder by almost 3 minutes. His race machine, a 2012 WR450F has a stock motor with Dicks modified suspension, good enough for his 2nd win of the season. His teamate, Vaughn Wilk, had a last place start, but sliced through the pack to catch and pass Graffunder on the second lap. The two waged a war the rest of the way with Wilk coming up just seconds short at the finish. Behind him, the 3rd member of the TEAM, Steven Godman, was also on the move charging to catch Wilk on the last lap but experienced brake problems and had to back off to get to the finish. Another great weekend of racing, next race is May 27th, stay tuned for more exciting race action.... 

Dicks Racing Team Riders Go 2 - 5 - 7 Overall

April 10th, 2013

At round 6 of the D-36 X-Country series, team riders Ross Neely, Vaughn Wilk, and Steven Godman had steady rides to take 3 of the top 7 spots. The AA row went off with a bang, as they rounded the first corner Vaughn Wilk (#8) shot into the lead, with team mate Neely (#246r) just behind. Godman (#14) was still at the line and had to come from last. As the dusty race wore on mistakes were frequent, like the one Wilk made overshooting a corner and flying off a cliff. Luckily, he was ok and went back up the hill and got back on course. Neely was there to capitalize on the miscue and made the pass. Meanwhile, Godman continued his charge through the pack to finish a respectable 7th overall. Back at the front, Neely battled for the win coming up a bit short. Round 7 is this coming weekend, stay tuned...

All 3 riders were racing different models, all Yamaha's from Mach 1 Motorsports. Eventually, Neely moved to the front on his WR 450, passing Godman on his YZ 250, just ahead of Wilk on his YZ450. As the race wore on, Neely pulled away from the other riders until just after halfway when a brake problem slowed him slightly. Still, he soldiered on to the win in dominating fashion, proving the WR 450 can win in MX conditions as well as pure off-road. Of course all 3 bikes have modified suspension which was ultra important at this event. For more info about the bikes, go to the featured bikes section for a breakdown of what was done to the bikes.

November 10th, 2012

Coming off of 2 straight A overall wins, team rider Vaughn Wilk moved up to the AA class for the event at Prarie City, home of the Handtown National MX. Perfect conditions greeted the riders for the start that led directly to the MX track, keeping his holeshot streak alive, Vaughn bolted to the front on his potent Mach 1 Yamaha WR450. From the beginning, Vaughn and current #1 plate holder Ross Neely along with fellow Yamaha rider Justin Sanders quickly seperated themselves from the rest of the pack. The battle raged for the lead for over an hour before Vaughn finally took the lead for 2 consecutive laps. Heading out onto the last lap he noticed the front end pushing in corners, which turned out to be a flat tire, he backed it down which led to another battle at the front for the overall win. In the end, Sanders took the win with Wilk just seconds behind. An exciting race for sure. Heading into the final round, the last 2 races have seen 2 first time winners, will it produce a 3rd different winner? Stay tuned to find out.

Dicks Racing and Mach1 Motorsports Join Forces to Launch NEW YAMAHA WR 450 Racing Effort

May 08th, 2012

With the release of the new Yamaha WR 450, Mach1 / Dicks Racing Team rider Jordan Brandt will switch over from the YZ 450F to race the newest off-road offering from Yamaha. Team rider Vaughn Wilk will also switch from his YZ 250 and move up to the 2012 WR 450F for the remainder of the race season. Jordan loves the new WR, claiming it to be the best true off-road bike he has ridden. His younger teamate agrees and looks forward to winning races on the new off-road platform from Yamaha.

The first race on the ALL NEW WR 450 proved to be a worthy test at round 3 of the National Hare Scrambles series at Lake Shasta in Northern California. Jordan started in 5th place and by the last lap had worked his way into second. A couple miles from the finish while going for the lead, he ran out of gas due to a pit crew error. Bummer! A week later was the D-36 Enduro event where the NEW bike was victoroius with Brandt at the controls. Stay tuned as we develop this bike further which tranlates into even more race wins. 

Many thanks to Mach1 and Yamaha for their support.

Dicks Racing Team Rider Ross Neely Caps Off Great Year By Winning D-36 X-Country Series Finale

November 21st, 2011

Another race, another win. That seems to be the trend. This time the Fall Classic in Wilseyville. At the start, conditions were good with rain the night before. Soon it started to rain again as the course got even slicker. At the end of the first 14 mile loop, Ross was out front by about 30 seconds, same for the seond loop. He stopped for gas and goggles at the end of the 3rd loop with about a minute lead. That margin stayed about the same until the 5th loop when a lapper came accross in front of him, sending him down into a ditch without the bike. The 2nd place rider went by as he was crawling back up the hill but had to stop in the pits before heading out onto the last lap. This got Ross back out front on his Mach1/Dicks Racing sponsored YZF450, a lead that he kept to the finish. This marked his 6th win of the 12 race series and earned him the #1 plate for the year.

Dicks Racing Dominates The Desert

November 14th, 2011

After his overall win in California, current Nevada Desert Champion Ross Neely continued his winning ways by turning in another stellar performance. This time with epic conditions, wet dirt and a great course. The hare and hound style event was 140 miles in length and by the finish Ross was all alone in 1st place. The only changes made to his Mach1/Dicks Racing sponsored YZ 450 were 1 tooth bigger front sprocket and 2 teeth smaller rear, both provided by Dirt Tricks Sprockets, which increased the top speed enough to cruise to the victory.

PRIME NUMBERS…Dicks Racing Team goes 1st, 3rd and 5th overall at round 11 of D-36 X-Country series

November 14th, 2011

The series returned to the home of the Hangtown MX National for the second time this year. The MX track was only part of the 10 mile course that was as always wet, rocky and slippery. Great racing action though, as Ross Neely won a close one over pro flat tracker Rodney Spencer. Behind them was another Dicks Racing Team rider, Steven Godman had his best ride of the year in 3rd overall. Finally, Vaughn Wilk busted through his issues that have plagued his season and rode up to his potential as the top A rider. All three riders agree that they have a "SUSPENSION" advantage over the competition that lets them ride safer and with more confidence. The series concludes on Nov. 20 and should be an epic battle at the front, stay tuned....

Dicks Racing Team Goes 1st and 3rd Overall at D-36 X-Country event

October 10th, 2011
Ross Neely continued his winning ways, this time in San Jose. His team mate Jordan Brandt had bike problems the week before and ended up riding Neely's practice bike. Brandt led early as Ross moved up through the pack. By the end of the first loop which took 28 minutes, the Mach1 Yamaha YZ450's were out front running strong seperated by less than a second. The lead traded hands several times until the 5th and final lap where Ross pulled a modest lead of about 30 seconds at the finish. Jordan ended up 3rd overall just 35 seconds back, not bad considering he had not ridden the bike until the race began. Series points leader Brian Garrahan got injured before the race and DNS, leaving the door open for Neely to possibly claim the #1 plate. Racing continues next week

As Summer Approaches, Dicks Racing Team Members Ross Neely and Jordan Brandt Stay Hot.

June 23rd, 2011

At the Honey Lake WORCS race, Ross Neely showed his versatility by almost winning the PRO-2 class and finishing 9th overall. Not bad considering he was riding a borrowed bike from fellow Dicks Racing rider Todd Winslow who was kind enough to loan Ross a prepped KX450F. The day before, the KTM Ross was riding exploded a clutch basket which made it inoperable. No matter, Ross adapted and rode great in both the 450A qualifier and Pro-2 final. The next weekend, he rode his 04 KX250 at the MRANN race to the overall victory, again proving why he has the #1 plate.

It is GOOD to see Jordan Brandt doing well again. After his podium finish at Funky Chicken and top-5 finish at the last National Hare Scrambles, he backed it up with a solid top-10 finish at the National Enduro in Wyoming. After struggling on BMW and Gas-Gas brands, Jordan is now riding a borrowed Husaberg with Dicks Racing tuned suspension. Stay tuned as both riders look to improve their bike programs heading into the second half of the year.
