Kanaan Stone, a 6-year-old from London, placed ninth overall in the junior limited class for 4- to 6-year-olds at the 40th Annual Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship held Aug. 2-7 in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

Stone, who has been racing since he was 3 years old, qualified for the championship by earning a top-six position at the Sunset Ridge regional qualifier. He qualified in two classes–the 50cc junior limited (all stock, no modifications) and the 50cc mini-e (electric dirtbike). He could only compete in one class at nationals; he chose the 50cc junior limited.

The championship’s three moto format required Stone to race three times on three different days. Each time, he raced against the same 41 competitors. The average score determined overall placement. He placed 15th, 8th, and 14th, good for ninth place overall.

This was Stone’s second time competing at the championship. He qualified last year in the 50cc mini-e class and placed 37th overall for his age group.

Stone is the son of Ernie Stone and Danielle Alley.
