Pequot Lakes sophomore Mitchell Masters finished off a successful season of motocross racing as he captured titles in two different classes of the Minnesota District 23 Motocross season.
The 16-year-old won the Schoolboy Class for ages 12-16, and the 125 2-Stroke division for ages 12 and over.
In 21 events of the Schoolboy division, Masters earned 327 points to win by 15 points.
In the 125 2-stroke, Masters accumulated 341 points in 19 races to win the title by 41 points.
Masters, whose family lives in Merrifield, is in his eighth year of racing and was happy with his results this season.
"This year was a rollercoaster with plenty of ups and downs," he said. "I wasn't injured this year. It was a good season with many challenges, but I overcame them to get the championship."
Master's father, Mike, was a two-time state champion and his sister Megan competed in the women's division.
"I would like to thank my family and friends, especially my dad, because without him I would have never been able to achieve my goal of winning the state championship," said Masters.
