Robbie Jenks of Shawnee, Ohio, captured the Overall championship for the second time in his career. Jenks, aboard a Wheelsports KTM, first won the Overall back in 2009.
Nick Fahringer of West Milton, Ohio, secured the AA class championship aboard his JRP Moose Racing Sherco. The Overall championship hunt came down to a throw-away round deciding the championship.
The Overall A championship was snagged by Chris Sturman of McDonald, Pa. He competed in the 250A Class. Nathan Bidwell and Joe Geyer Jr., both of the Open A class, were behind Sturman for Overall A contention.
Dan Mead of Pittsburgh, Pa., took home the Overall B championship while riding in the 30+ B class. Nick Corwin of the Open B class and Josh Cetto of the 250B class chased after Mead for the honor.
“We look forward to recognizing the champions and many other participants at our annual banquet,” said ACES President Kory Young. “Our racers travel several hours throughout the season to make it to the rounds. They are loyal and appreciative of the opportunities to race.”

The series is constantly striving to bring the best racing, awards and sense of community to our riders.
“The clubs that make up the series put in an immense amount of hours planning the races, laying out trail and running the checks,” Young said. “We appreciate their effort that allows so many racers to do what they enjoy. We’d also like to thank Mallory Wolanski for being our scorekeeper at all of the events this year and thank Mike Copsey for keeping points behind the scenes.”
ACES also values all of our sponsors. That includes one of our long-time presenting sponsors — Multi-Wing — a Cleveland-based manufacturer of fan blades. AOMC joined Multi-Wing as the presenting sponsor this year.
