Code St. Peter bested a field of passionate young racers in Saturday morning’s Parker 400 Youth 170 and 250 race, the kickoff event to the final day of racing at the opening event of the 2024 UNLTD Off-Road Racing Series season. Running in the Youth 250 class, St. Peter took over the top spot from Wyatt Cotter on Lap 5 and eventually completed nine laps of the youth course in 25:28.467, making him the only racer in any class to finish a ninth lap.
Behind him, the Youth 170 racers dominated the rest of the standings, as six Open racers and two Production racers completed eight laps each. In the 170 Production class, Cash Martinez led Ryder Wilson all race long to take the checkered flag by nearly 40 seconds. Martinez ran as high as fourth overall in the early stages of the race.
The battle for the 170 Open win came down to Nixon Nagel and Jameson Mandle, who worked his way up from eighth overall to shadow Nagel for most of the race. At the checkered flag, the two were separated by 33 seconds, with Gray Lantz just a further 15 seconds behind Mandle after holding off Brixton Wirt for the final class podium spot. Nagel, Mandle, and Lantz were also on the 170 podium at October’s California 300, albeit with Mandle winning that race by a lap over Lantz and Nagel.
