Eager to make an appearance on the Mini O’s podium and pop his first bottle, Sam Garroutte came to Florida with a very clear mission, win! Sam did just that too, making the right moves when they counted the most when racing moved outdoors. Sam had his hands full in the stacked 51cc (4-6) Limited class however it was nothing he couldn’t handle. Coming in with a strong second place result in moto one, Garroutte was riding wide open during the second moto shooting for the top spot. As the 51cc (4-6) Limited class came ripping up the finish line hill on the last lap it was the #529 machine leading the way stealing the overall with 2-1 moto finishes. Sam earned himself a new number one plate as well as that first chance to spray everyone in attendance with a little bubbly he so badly wanted.
MINI O'S MOTOCROSS HIGHLIGHTS
51cc (4-6) Limited
Sam Garroutte has been waiting a long time for his chance to pop the bubbly and his opportunity came today. Sam finished second earlier this year at Loretta Lynn’s and was just a spot short from getting to soak the media with champagne. So with his next chance lying at the Mini O’s, Sam took full advantage of it sticking himself into the lead and never looking back to earn the moto two win and overall championship.
