Over this past weekend, the 35th Annual Dubya World Vet National took place at Glen Helen Raceway. There were many firsts for this year’s Dubya World Vet National which included a World Vet Vintage MX Race along with the 1st Annual World Vet Cup of Nations two-moto showdown. Throughout the three day event, there was a record 1,600 racer entries with riders coming from over 20 different countries.
The most anticipated race on Sunday was the 30+ Pro class. There was some stiff competition with 29 entries all battling to win the purse money and the title of the 2019 Dubya World Vet National 30+ Pro Class Champion. It was Mike Alessi who swept the class by going 1-1 with the 47-year-old Mike Brown coming in second going 2-2. Both racers pushed hard with Mike Brown having one last attempt to pass Alessi on the last lap but came up short. Congrats Mike Alessi on the win!
