Hardware and plenty of it.

That is what was on the line back on Sunday, Aug. 14 during the final stop of the Shades of Gray Faircross series at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.

Four riders from Belle were competing for not only additional hardware during racing in Sedalia but overall series championship bragging rights.

In spite of not posting a win in either one of the three stops, Jaseton Rodgers edged fellow Belle area resident Barrett Zumwalt for the top spot in the 65cc Junior 7-9 division with 54 points compared to 51 for Zumwalt.

Rodgers placed second at Belle, fourth at the Phelps County Fair in Rolla and seventh at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.

Zumwalt posted a fourth-place finish in Belle, third place in Rolla and eighth at Sedalia to finish just behind Rodgers.

Competing in only one race throughout the series, William Locklin made the most of it.

Posting a win in Belle, Locklin finished in a three-way tie for second place with 25 points in the 50cc 7-8 division.

Ryder Harrison and Mason Mallow also accumulated 25 points throughout the Faircross series.

Nolie Finnegan and Ellie Gray entered racing in Sedalia tied for third place in the points standings of the 85cc Senior 12-15 division.

After the race at the Missouri State Fair, Finnegan (51) edged out Gray (50) for third place in total points between the three races at Belle, Rolla and Sedalia.

Finnegan began the series with a third-place finish in Belle followed by a fifth-place run in Rolla and a sixth-place finish in Sedalia.

Gray posted a fifth-place finish in Belle before improving her position in Rolla by placing third. She wrapped up the series with a seventh-place finish in Sedalia.

Fellow Belle resident Jancen Schlottog picked up 14 points for his seventh-place finish in Belle. That point total put him in 12th place overall during the series.

Both young ladies were not finished with the faircross series.

Competing in the Girls 12 and under 65cc-85cc division, both girls moved up a spot in the point standings.

Finnegan finished second overall with 62 points followed closely behind by Gray in third place with 60 points.

Placing second in Belle to go along with a pair of third-place finishes in Rolla and Sedalia, Finnegan posted top-three finishes in all three legs of the series.

Gray’s best showing in the division was a second-place finish at Rolla.

Adding to their hardware haul in the 65cc division, Rodgers and Zumwalt also competed in the Pit Bike Kids 12 and under division.

Entering racing in Sedalia with 38 points putting him in third place, Rodgers picked up 25 points for his first-place finish at the Missouri State Fair giving him the points championship with a total of 63.

Zumwalt placed third in Sedalia placing him second overall with 52 points when adding in his fifth-place finishes from Belle and Rolla.

William Locklin also earned overall series hardware following racing in Sedalia with his second-place finish in the 50cc 7-8 division.
