KINGMAN – A proud trio of Kingman BMX riders finished the 2016 Grand National Championships in Tulsa, Okla., riding in the very last race possible for each of them.
Josh White, 9, finished fifth in the country in the 9 Expert national championship. White had a great start in the final and headed into Turn 1 in a close battle for the lead. White ended up in the dirt coming out of the turn and recovered enough to complete the ride and take fifth place.
White won Friday’s Race of Champions in the same age group.
Garrett Newberry reached the Main for 16 Intermediate and ended strong with a sixth-place finish.
Samantha Ogborn qualified for her main in 11-12 Girls Cruiser, but crashed in the race.
