ROUND 4: FUNKY CHICKEN HARE SCRAMBLES, ELKTON, OREGONFred Andrews lead a Kawasaki podium sweep at round four of the AMA National Hare Scrambles in Elkton, Oregon. Following Andrews were David Pearson, Chuck Woodford, Scott Sheak and KTM’s Brian Garrahan. Pearson put a 30 second gap on Andrews and Woodford in the early stages of the race, but Andrews was content to let his desert oriented teammates blast off at he start, he just hung behind, then reeled them in as the hours ticked off for the winRounding out the top ten were Eric Mashbir aboard a Honda, Yamaha rider Josh McLevy, followed by Honda pilot Andy Grider and KTM riders Joey Lanza and Ben Hale.Outside of the lead battle, the big news was Shane Watts’ return to racing form and Team Green’s newest addition; former Pro motocrosser, Scott Sheak. Watts spent most of the first two hours battling with Sheak. According to Watts, “During the fifth lap Sheak was able to pass me following our race long battle, dropping me back to fifth position. It was only about a mile after this that my rear wheel slid into a stump and managed to pop one side of the tire and mousse tube off the rim.” Despite his race-ending incident, the Aussie was pleased nonetheless, as he was not tired and happy to finish intact. He said he is continuing to get back up to the pace.And coming off a second place finish at the Washougal WORCS round the weekend before, Sheak is promising to be worth keeping an eye on in the future. Sheak told us that he is just trying to pace himself and ride smart, he knows he has a lot to learn, but is very excited. “This is where my roots are,” he said referring to returning to off-road and his rejoining Team Green, where he started out as an amateur.But as of the fourth round, Andrews has a solid lead with 96 points over Garrahan and Woodford who are tied at second with 67 and closely followed by McLevy who has 63 points.
