My first big race back from my accident was this week.  The race at Mammoth Mountain is like a mini Loretta Lynn race, everyone goes to this race…. and this year was the 50th anniversary so it was bigger and better than ever.  We had to drive all the way around this year because roads were still closed from all the snow that we got this year.  We stopped for some fun in the water and snow on the way to and from Mammoth…. it was really cold!

The next day was Father’s Day and my Dad spent the whole day working on my bikes and getting everything ready for the race…. He is the best!

I tested my bike on the road a few times just to make sure we got the jetting the best we could.  The elevation is so high on the mountain we have to change all of our settings from what we run at home.

Practice day went well.  Worked on getting my flow down on the track and fine tuning the motor.  I couldn’t wait to get on the line and race!

I was really lucky to have Josh Boykin with Boykin Suspension spend a few days with my family and I and make sure my bike was ready for each race.  Josh worked with Dom and I before each moto and my bike never felt better.  I really appreciate all your help and hard work Josh!

I had a lot of my sponsors at the event to support me… Thank you Yamaha, 2X Promotions, Fly Gear, Scott Goggles, and so many others that I didn’t get pictures with like Leatt, Dunlop, Mylucasoil, Americoresmx, Addictionindustries, Mika, etc.

The first day of racing I was in the top 3 in every race.  It was really cool to be on the line with so many awesome racers and be able to battle up front with them.  The track was awesome, and I was really happy with my results because I feel like I am still getting back up to speed.  I finished day 1 with Heat race 1st and 2nd and main event 2nd and 3rd place finishes.

Day 2 the track got a little more rough and my lap times got a little faster.  I didn’t have better results but had even better battles than the day before.  Finished the Heat races with two 2nd place finishes.  I finished one main event with a 3rd and the second main event I got the hole shot and was out front but crashed really hard.  I crushed my pipe all the way in and my throttle was totally broken.  I was able to battle back from 26th to 8th place.

After my races my family and I did a video testimonial for Leatt.  They wanted to have myself and my Mom and Dad talk about my accident when I broke my back and how because of the neck brace and chest protector I was able to get back on my bike and ride this race.  I’m not too sure how the video is going to turn out.  I did my part and told them what happened on my bike.  Then when my Mom and Dad told their part, both my parents cried which made all the film crew and Leatt reps cry, which made me cry.  I didn’t realize my parents were so upset about everything.  And my parents said that it was really hard to talk about because they have never told the full story out loud before…. and it has only been two months.  I guess I will have to update you all and let you know how that turns out. lol

I also did a video shoot for Yamaha up in the trees.  I always like to talk about how much I love my bike!

I also want to thank the Vacarello family for letting us share a cabin with you.  Always fun hanging out with friends.

Now it’s time to get ready for Loretta’s!

Last weekend the 51 Fifty Energy Drink team invited me and my family to the first ever supercross at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara.  We left Saturday morning and stopped in San Jose to do a little riding before going to the supercross race.  We got to the stadium just in time to watch practice.  The place was awesome.

After practice we went into the pits we had to say Hi to the 51Fifty girls.

This week I met with 51 Fifty Energy Drink to shoot part of a video they have coming out soon.  I can’t give away to much information but I can tel you that I will be featured in one part of the video.  I thought I would share a little behind the scenes with my part of the video.

This video was a little more about me then the other videos/TV things I have done in the past.  They wanted me to be a little more like myself then to do something scripted.  51 Fifty Energy Drink is all about being who you are and having fun while you are doing that.  We had so much fun!

Of course I will have a close up and you will all get to see my fabulous face.  lol

It has been a few weeks since I wrote about anything and so much has been going on.

I told you that my oldest sister Elyssa and her daughter Lola were in town from North Carolina visiting and while they were here they watched me ride my bike a lot.

I hung out with friends a lot at the race tracks.  I love going to different tracks and hanging out with different friends at each place I go.  This picture was taken in Hollister at the GP track.

I also went with my Mom, my Sisters and Lola to the Zoo.  We had a lot of fun running around and showing Lola all of the animals.  My sisters and I ran around and acted crazy the whole day.

When I was practicing my bike cut out going through a turn and I tipped over.  No big deal, but when I picked up my bike I noticed that my finger was pointing the wrong way.  Yep, broken finger.  The doctor gave me a shot and then set the finger back in place and put it in a cast to heal.

My Grandparents took my Great Grandpa and my Uncle to the Sacramento Fish Hatchery.  It was really cool to watch the salmon jump up the ladder and fight to get to the top to lay their eggs.  It was really crazy to watch.

My parents and I went bowling.  We all had a lot of fun but I think we all agreed that our family are never going to be professional bowlers.

This year for Halloween, it was the last year that my school walks in the parade through my Mom’s work to get candy. (Next year I switch to middle school)  I didn’t know what I wanted to be, I was thinking I would be the guy from breaking bad but that didn’t fit me very well.  I decided to go with something completely crazy and different from what I could ever be in real life……A Nerd.

Halloween night when we went trick-or-treating we took our golf cart to the golf course down the street that my Grandparents live at.  We went with my friend Marks family and all 8 of us piled into the golf cart and ran crazy from house to house getting candy.

My parents and I went to Stockton to the sprint car races with some friends of ours.  We had awesome seats and had fun watching the action.  The 51 Fifty Energy Drink girls were at the races and I got to say Hi.

I spent Thanksgiving with my family at my Aunt and Uncle’s house.  I made sure to tell everyone that I was Thankful for my entire family and for dirt bikes!

I jumped around to a lot of different things, but there is still more to come…….

This last weekend was the start of the Dodge National Race in Sacramento….which I can’t race in because of my wrist. 😦
I am excited that my 51 FIFTY team has still let me take part in the week long event. Sunday I took my bike to the track and as a team the bikes all got make overs.

Sunday was move in day for all the riders and the lot was getting full fast. The 51 FIFTY rig looked awesome and I was very excited to see my bike under the tent.

20120926-023139.jpg20120926-023127.jpg

We are all sporting some very cool red and white graphics and all the bikes on the team now match. I love the new colors and design and can’t wait to see it on the track. It was really hard working on my bike with only my left hand but we all worked together and it came out awesome.

20120926-023200.jpg20120926-023207.jpg20120926-023215.jpg

After we worked on bikes, we got to hang out and relax for a little.

20120926-023229.jpg

Then we put all the bikes upstairs in the hauler. It is really cool to see my bike up away with the pro bikes…..hoping to be on one of the pro bikes one day.

20120926-024105.jpg

Thank you Larry from Moto Efx for the cool graphics, you did great….as usual.

20120926-023341.jpg

Thank you Micheal from 51 FIFTY for letting me be a part of Dodge even though I am not riding. You always make me feel welcome and I really appreciate everything you do for me.

20120926-023348.jpg

Later this week I will be back at the track not riding, but supporting my team. Check back later for the behind the scene look at Dodge from a spectator instead of a rider this year.

20120926-023320.jpg

Since I am not on the track supporting my 51FIFTY team I thought I would be like Dale and Brennan from the Step Brothers movie and MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO…..prestigue world wide!

I took 7 songs that are currently on the radio, I changed some of the words to fit the drink and put it all together.

  • THE LAZY SONG – Burno Mars
  • CALL ME MAYBE – Carly Rae Jepsen
  • AIRPLANES – B.O.B featuring Eminem
  • I WANT YOU BACK – Cher Lloyd
  • YOU DON’T KNOW YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL – One Direction
  • 5-1-5-0 – Dierks Bentley
  • I THINK I WANNA MARRY YOU – Burno Mars

I HOPE YOU ENJOY MY ACTING AND SINGING

….I promise I will stick with dirt bikes as soon as my arm is better.

Since I broke my wrist and I haven’t been able to ride my dirt bikes, I think I might be going a little 51FIFTY!  My Mom even says I have too much energy.  The other day we were driving in the car and I was bored, so I decided to play with the sun shade….and of course a dirt bike.

20120906-092323.jpg20120906-092332.jpg20120906-092339.jpg

My family and I went out to dinner at Mongolian Bar-B-Q, and it was sooooo good.  If you don’t know, you get to pick your own meats, vegetables, and noodles and then make your own sauce and watch them cook your creation.  Of course I made mine without meat and without vegetables, so I had the most delicious noodles and sauce ever.

20120906-092346.jpg

After dinner my family and I walked around the mall and then went to the movies to see Batman.  The movie was really good and I can’t wait for the next one, I loved the ending!

20120906-092353.jpg

My sister and I have been doing some things together and we even went to lunch with some of our dirt bike friends and that was really fun.

20120906-092404.jpg

I have a doctor’s appointment next week to see how I am healing and when I can get back on my bike…..

WISH ME LUCK!

Also I want to wish all my friends on the team luck this weekend at the Lake Elsinore Motocross race in Los Angeles.  Make sure you watch the races and cheer on some really great guys!  GOOD LUCK!

Saturday I spent the day helping my Dad work on bikes and we started packing to go to the World Mini Grand Prix that was coming up.  Saturday afternoon my Dad took me to Stockton 99 Speedway to cheer on Larry from MotoEfx and Carlos from 51 Fifty Energy Drink.  The race was soooo fun!  Larry and Carlos gave us pit passes and I got to hang out with the teams.

MOTO EFX:  Larry and the Moto Efx team had wrapped like every car and hauler that was in the pits.  The whole place looked amazing with the coolest graphics.  Larry’s rider, Jacob Gomes who drives the number 16 Sunnyvalley Meats car, made the race look too easy.  He qualified first but because of the starting draw he started the race in fourth.  Before long he took the lead and never looked back.  Larry and his family let me hang out in the center of the track with them and I even got to wear the ear phones to listen to the team communication.  THANK YOU MOTOEFX!

51 FIFTY: Carlos is the driver for the 51 Fifty Energy Drink car and he drove the wheels off his car.  The team had problems with the car just before practice and got no testing time on the track.  He was able to pull out a thirteenth qualifying position which was amazing.  Carlos definitely passed the most cars of the night.  The track was really difficult to pass on and Carlos battled all the way to fifth.  What an amazing drive to the front!  After the race I hung out in the pits more with the teams and before I left Carlos hooked me up with banners and drinks to take to the World Mini Grand Prix.  THANK YOU 51 FIFTY!

THANK YOU LARRY – MOTO EFX

THANK YOU CARLOS – 51 FIFTY ENERGY DRINK
