This weekend I raced at the Regional Loretta Lynn Qualifier at Hangtown.

Friday was practice and the first round on my 65 went very well, but I had a bad crash on my 85.  When I came down the back hill I went around a lapped rider and hit a kicker and went over the handlebars onto my head.  Although it took me the rest of the day to recover from the crash, I regrouped and was ready to ride on Saturday.

It was so hot this last weekend.  In Sacramento it was about 110 degrees.  Saturday I raced both 65 stock and 85 stock and I had to finish in the top 4 overall to win a ticket to the Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals.  In the 65 Stock race I was able to finish with a 1st place overall finish and in the 85 stock race I finished in 2nd place overall.  I had two tickets to Loretta’s…..WooHoo.

Sunday I raced the 65 mod race and I had a little more of a struggle.  In the first race I had a great start and was out front but I went down in the third turn.  I got my bike up and started kicking it but I was having a hard time getting the bike started.  By the time I got my bike started everyone went by me and I was very far back in 30th spot.  I knew that I had to get a fourth place overall finish and that every spot might count.  I raced the five laps as fast as I could and I was able to race from the 30th spot back up to 6th place.  The second race I knew I had to finish up front to get the overall fourth and I was able to get a 2nd place finish which gave me a 3rd place overall and another ticket to Loretta’s.

I always have the best people supporting me and this weekend was not different.
