Theresa Borja continues to dominate the Mini ATV Class while also strengthening her hold on the top spot of the Marianas Racing Association’s 2021 Point Series Race held at the Cowtown Raceway Park in Marpi.

Borja, who holds a pristine record throughout the last four series races, continues to conquer her foes, placing first during the fifth series race last May 30 to gain her another 50 points, bringing her score up to a perfect 250.

Coming in at second place last May 30 was Jesus Borja, earning him 44 points to bring him up to a 218. He also holds second place overall and still has a good chance of possibly overpowering Borja at just 32 points behind.

Melvin Reyes was third overall despite placing fourth place during the fifth series race, earning him 18 points to bring his score up to 174.

Like Borja, Michael Camacho also remains undefeated in the Mini 2 Class of the MRA series after placing first during its fifth leg to earn him 50 points. He also currently holds an overall score of 250.

Ethan Yumul has narrowed the gap but is still in second after placing runner-up two Sundays ago to earn him 50 points, putting him just 30 points behind Camacho at 220.

Audiescott Iakopo completed the Top 3 during the fifth series race to earn him 38 points. The win bumped him up to a 131 but he still holds seventh place overall.

Devin Yumul continues to hold the lead in the class after earning 47 points to bump him up to a 237. Even though Yumul gained the same amount of points as Iakopo, Yumul placed second in the second heat, costing him first place.
