"Elena wins 125GP at Portland International Raceway!!!
12 year old Arclight Racing / UmbrellaGirls USA sponsored rider, Elena Myers, won her very first 125GP race this past weekend at Portland International Raceway in Oregon.
After her 4th place finish at the Streets of Willow track in Southern California this past June, this Northern California phenom was invited up by OMMRA to take their new riders novice school and get her official "Big Track" license. Very excited about this opportunity, Elena didn't take long to impress the powers that be when it came time to hit the track. Immediately she was comfortable with the very fast and very flat circuit by lapping in the 1:17 range on her very first day, times that are considered very competitive. However, her best time of the weekend came on Saturday's practice with a 1:15.8...a time that would have easily put her on pole for last months USGPRU national!
By race day, Elena was very comfortable and wasted no time in winning the first 125GP 4 lap-qualifing race by over 10 seconds to secure pole position for the 10 ap main. Main event time. When the green flag dropped, Myers got a bad start and was in third by turn one behind fast locals Rob Tatom and Mike McDonough. It didn't take long however, as Elena made her move on lap one around the outside of Portland's
back straight to grab the top spot, a spot that she would not relinquish. By the white flag, Myers had built up a lead of over 20 seconds and cruised home to take her first GP win! At the awards ceremony after the race, and as a big bonus, the President of OMMRA granted her Expert status!
Elena has now officially become the youngest rider in OMMRA's 33 year history to be granted "Expert" status. Elena thanked all her great sponsors and was quoted at the ceremony saying "I want to thank OMMRA for giving me this great opportunity and for believing in me, it
was an awesome experience."
