This last weekend I raced at Oatfield in Turlock at the Vurb Classic.  The Vurb Classic race is a large two day race that brings the best riders together to compete for bragging rights different than most local races.

The morning of the first race day, during our four lap practice, my 65 mod motor blew up.  I switched to my stock bike for the races and I knew I would have to work really hard to keep up with the fast racer that were in my class.  My starts were awesome the entire weekend which helped me to be able to battle for the top positions in every race.  The first round of motos in the morning I had to ride really hard to stay in front because the track wasn’t very rough and the mod motors the other kids had were really fast.  I was excited to be able to battle back and forth and stay in first and second place spots in each race.

I raced my 85 the first day but my motor wasn’t running well.  My Dad and his friend Gary and Brian switched my motor for the second race so I can finish out the day.  Even with the motor problems I had I was able to pull out an overall 5th place finish for the day.  Thank you Gary and Brian for everything.

Even with the motor problems I was able to pull out a 5th place overall finish for the day on my 85.

After practice Sam from 51 Fifty Energy Drink came out to watch me ride and take some pictures of me on and off the track.  Sam even brought some more energy drinks for people at the race….as you can guess I was extra popular.  I will share the pictures with you soon.

All 8 of my 65 races we amazing.  Each race was really great battles with passes back and forth from first to second on almost each lap.  The track got really rough throughout the day and we were racing really hard every lap for the top spot.  I finished up the weekend with 2 overall 1st place wins and 2 overall 2nd place wins for the weekend.

I did have one race that the gate dropped really fast and because I was distracted on the line I wasn’t ready and I ended up leaving the gate last.  Even in that race I was able to battle through all the riders and almost made a pass for first place on the last lap but was not able to make it stick and finished in second place.  On the last race of the day they announced a $25.00 hole shot award which I won.

After the race I was helping my Dad load up and the people from Vurb Moto asked me to stay around after all the races were finished.  They gave out some awards and I won one.  I received the PERFORMANCE AWARD for the weekend.  They gave one of these awards out to a kid that stood out for the weekend with outstanding performances and sportsmanship.  It was really cool to be noticed and given this award.  I have to thank everyone at Vurb for choosing me for this awesome award.

Vurb Moto also interviewed me after I received my award.

The Performance Award is really cool.  It is made of metal with cut outs and really cool designs….you have to be careful though because I cut my finger on it on the way home.
