“It took me six attempts to win three awards,” Narduzzi said when accepting his trophy. “So that shows that it’s not an easy thing to do. But this sole event is what keeps me from retiring from racing.
“I want to thank the AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) for keeping VMD here and for letting me race. Everything went really well this weekend.”
The AMA also presented awards Sunday to the winners of the mini road racing event managed by the Ohio Mini Roadracing League.
While the mini road racing was not part of the national championship program, the top riders in each class were recognized based on the cumulative points earned during two days of competition.
The winners were:
- Kids 50 — Landon Meyer
- Stock Moto Expert — Chris Wallace
- Stock Moto Novice — John Evans
- Formula 3 Expert — Devon Perlenfein
- Formula 3 Novice — Aaron Niederkorn
- Formula 1 — Chris Wallace
