The Central Alabama Motocross Series’ annual banquet was held Jan. 25 at Billingsley School cafeteria.

The CAMS series for the 2008 season consisted of three motocross tracks across central Alabama: Noah’s Moto Park in Maplesville, Holeshot MX in Millbrook and Crossbone MX Ranch in Billingsley. Riders competed in races from March-November 2008 and accumulated points from each race. Motocross is a family sport with male and female riders as young as 4 up to those who are still young at heart.

Locals who were honored at the banquet are: Cody Draper, second place 50 cc 7-8 years; Cole Spencer of Maplesville, fourth place 85 cc 7-11 years; Trent Smith of Maplesville, first place 65 cc 7-9 years and first place Preteen; Cole Nelson, fifth place 65 cc 7-9 years; Troy Harrison of Maplesville, first place 65 cc 10-11 years and second place Preteen; Tyler Roper of Maplesville, first place 85cc 7-11 and fifth place Preteen; Devin Lenoir, fifth place 65 cc 10-11 years; Deven George of Maplesville, second place in 85 cc 7-11 years; and Will Harrison of Maplesville, fourth place in Preteen.

Many prizes were also given away from area sponsors. Some of the larger prizes were Troy Harrison of Maplesville receiving a helmet from Dirt Bike Supply in Pelham, Trent Smith receiving a $100 gift certificate for a helmet at CMC Motosports in Prattville.

The 2009 season will begin in March and include the following tracks: Noah’s Motopark, Crossbone MX Ranch, Outlaw MX Ranch, and Central Alabama Motocross Track.
