Youth was served in the Intermediate Class of the 2022 Monster Energy Point Series Race last Sunday at the Cowtown Race Track after 17-year-old Corry Pangelinan won the division.
The Marianas High School student won both heats of the February race to finish with 50 points. Henry Camacho Jr. finished second with 42 points, while Tristan Sablan equaled Camacho’s 42 points but lost to him in the second heat to settle for third place.
Pangelinan said words cannot fully describe his feelings riding his Yamaha YZ250F during last Sunday’s Marianas Racing Association competition.
“I had a lot of fun yesterday. I was just trying to have fun and because the track conditions weren’t the best I was more focused on not falling,” he Pangelinan said he was also excited that MRA added the Intermediate Class to its divisions at the start of the 2022 season.
m glad that they introduced the new Intermediate Class because it gives a chance for new riders to take over from the Novice Class.”
Pangelinan said he’s been only riding for a little over a year and got hook into the sport by his father, Glen.
“My dad had introduced me to the sport when I was younger but the MRA wasn’t brought back yet and in the recent year my parents got me my first bike and my love for the sport continues to grow every day.”
He also extended his thanks to sponsors Ericco Racing, Pokka, Marianas Native, as well as his family and friends.
