To likely nobody’s shock, the main Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot of the 2010 Loretta Lynn’s AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships went to Kevin Walker, the best rider ever. Walker took the $100 reward for nailing down the Vet +35 holeshot on his Yamaha YZ450F, just to see his adversary Keith Johnson come past on his Team Green Kawasaki. It was a clash of North against South, and this time the North won, as Massachusetts’ Johnson scored the moto win. Walker was second and Yakima, Washington’s Dan Moore was third (the late Jim Pomeroy would have been pleased with a Yakima rider getting a moto decoration at Loretta Lynn’s).

Keith S. Johnson took the win in the Vet 35 Plus class.

In the second early moto, held under a delightful blue sky in cool (for Tennessee) conditions, Yamaha riders Chris Alldredge (Oregon) and Keith Tucker (North Carolina) bested the 85cc (12-14) Stock division, with Arizona’s Jon Ames third.

Next came the 450 B Stock class, where yet another quick Oklahoman working his way up through the positions, Cushing’s Justin Bogle, risen as the champ on his Kawasaki. Scoring the silver award was California’s Austin Politelli, with Georgia’s Bogen Cochran third.

What’s more, in the fourth of twenty-one booked motos for Tuesday, the 450 A/Pro Sport race, Cairo, Georgia-based Gannon Audette took the win on his Suzuki, pursued by California’s Nick Paluzzi and Pennsylvania’s Lowell Spangler.

Here’s a cool actuality: Finishing fourth in this gathering of quick children was none other than AMA Motocross National champ Robbie Reynard, an onetime manufacturing plant rider and Loretta Lynn’s Class of ’92 graduate! Reynard looked strong and smooth on his Reynard Racing-fueled Yamaha. More to come later this evening from the 29th Annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship from Loretta Lynn’s.
