This past weekend was a rare weekend that I didn’t have a race that I had to be at.  It was my only weekend off for almost two months……and guess what I did?

image

I went dirt bike riding and racing of course!  Did you guess right?  We went to Kern County raceway on Saturday to practice on the new dirt bike track that I had never been to before.  But, after I was done riding we had to drive our van onto the oval track and watch some of the cars racing and practicing.

image

The track was really fun and I had a good day of riding but it was very cold out all day.

image

On Sunday I was going to go to another track to practice but at the last minute I decided to show up at Oatfield and race.  The day was great practice….the track got rough and my friends and I raced had all day.  Check out this picture of all the green bikes and my one Yamaha right in the middle

And guess who got the hole shot in that race?……ME!

I ended the day with an overall 1st and 2nd place finish.  It was a great weekend of riding and racing.

This weekend was the first step to qualify for the Loretta Lynn National.  The NorthWest and MidWest area qualifier at MMX in Marysville.

For the qualifier I raced in 3 classes…. My Dad worked on my bike and got it handling the way I wanted it so I felt comfortable on the track.  They had so many entries that many of the classes had to run heat races and last chance qualifiers to see who would be able to race in the main event.  The track got really rough and slick and I was very happy to keep my bike on two wheels and be able to battle with some really great riders and finish the weekend qualified in all three of my classes.

MMX-9723-X3

In my 85 9-12 class we had 35 racers and I was able to finish with an overall 2nd place finish.

In my Mini Sr 1 Class and my Mini Sr 2 Class I was able to finish with 2 overall 5th place finishes.

My buddy Gary was announcing the races all weekend and I was able to go up in the announcers tower to talk with him and show some love to all of my sponsors.

AND……. WHO WANTS TO GO SHOPPING?

I just got my bLUcRU debit card in the mail!

This last weekend was the first round of the Road to Mammoth qualifier races at Glen Helen Raceway.  The weekend was not easy from start to finish…..

Our van needed a new drive shaft and it didn’t come in until Friday.  My Dad worked all night and when he got home from work he put in the drive shaft and then we left for LA.  When my Dad drove the van, the drive shaft was not in balance had to be changed back to the old part.  My Dad and I jacked the van back up to change the drive shaft again.

image

One of the bolts on the drive shaft was stripped out and my Dad had to chisel it off.  A piece of the bolt shattered apart and hit my Dad in the face and he got a couple of war wounds.

image

 

We put the old drive shaft back into the van and then we got on the road to drive to LA…. a little late but we were finally on our way.

When we got to the track Saturday morning the wind was sooooooo bad it was like a sand storm, and it was like that the whole weekend.

image

I know its hard to tell in this picture but there is 8 bikes on the track racing and you can’t see them because the wind is so bad.  The whole weekend everyone had to wear goggles to watch the races and when I was on the track racing sometimes it was hard to see anything in front of me.

image

I raced in 3 classes this weekend….Although the weather was bad, I still had 36 bikes on the line with me in my class.

85 9-12   – I finished 3rd and 2nd with an overall 2nd place

Mini Sr 1 12-13  – I finished 2nd and 3rd with an overall  2nd place

Mini Sr 2 9-14   – I finished 3rd and 5th with an overall  5th place

image

One of the things Glen Helen is famous for is the huge up hill.  The wind was blowing to the left and my Mom told me to make sure I stay to the right going up the hill so the wind doesn’t blow me off the edge.  During the race I knew it was faster to stay on the left and she caught a couple of pictures of me off the edge of the hill.  (I know it is hard to tell in the picture but this hill is really high up)

image

The wind was crazy but the racing was really fun.  I did fall in one moto and never got the out front start that I wanted but I was able to battle through and get several podium finishes.
