Tag: Saipan Tribune
Siblings Billie Inabo and Corry Pangelinan were perfect in the first three editions of the 2023 Monster Energy Point Series Race after winning the Mini II Class and Intermediate Class, respectively, last Sunday at the Cowtown Race Track.
Billie topped her division with yet another 50-piece, followed by her former Powerpuff Girls Class rivals Nanako Celis and T.J. Ferrer with 41 points each.
“Racing the Minis II has always been fun since I’ve started racing in the class. I will try my best to improve my performance, in hopes that it brings more opportunities for me in the future!” said Billie.
As for the track conditions, the 13-year-old DanDan Middle School student said it was a little slippery and dry.
“But it was still fun to ride on. It brought a few obstacles from the uneven parts of the track and some loose dirt, but it made it more interesting. The weather was actually really sunny and bright, but I did wish that it would have rained a little for a tacky track,” she said.
She dedicated her win to her family, most especially her uncles, Ponce and Tiny, and auntie Merissa as well as her sponsors—ERICCO Racing Team Pokka (MARPAC), Inas Kitchen, YCO True Value Hardware, and House Speaker Edmund Villagomez (Ind-Saipan).
Billie has so far totaled 50 points while making victory laps in the January, February, and now March editions of the race.
Corry, for his part, topped the Intermediate Class with another sweep of both heats last Sunday. It’s also the third straight month that the 18-year-old finished with perfect scores in the division.
Coming in second to Corry is Aric Cruz with his 44 points, while third was Henry Camacho Jr. with 40 points.
The elder Pangelinan said he’s happy with his and his sister’s performance in the 2023 Monster Energy Point Series Race this far.
“My thoughts so far have been just proud, not only of myself but my little sister as well, she has become such an amazing rider and I couldn’t be any more proud.”
He said race conditions were also optimum last Sunday as “the track was good, it was smooth and less rocky which made it a lot easier to navigate the track.”
Corry dedicated his March victory to his girlfriend, Nevaeh Cruz, as well as thanked his sponsors, namely, the ERICCO Racing Team, Pokka (MARPAC), Inas kitchen, YCO True Value Hardware, and House Speaker Edmund Villagomez (Ind-Saipan).
Results of the other divisions of the March MRA race will be published in the following issues of Saipan Tribune.
