Out west in Lucerne Valley, Calif., the AMA National Hare and Hound championship held its final round with the 2012 title on the line. Thor’s Kurt Caselli entered the round just eight points back of the points leader David Pearson and would need him to finish third or higher to clinch the championship with a win. While Caselli dominated the race from start to finish, there hasn’t been official word yet about the championship after a protest led to a penalty on Pearson. Depending on the severity of the penalty, Caselli could be awarded his second-consecutive Hare and Hound title.
