This weekend I went to the Moto America race at Laguna Seca to watch my friend and Wienerschnitzel teammate Josh Herrin race.

Josh races for Meen Motorsports and all the guys there were really nice.

My Wienerschnitzel family was also there to watch the races.  It is always a lot of fun to get to hang out with all of them.

The team had the dogs flowing and they were so good!

We had to hike up a huge hill to watch the races and I was very glad I brought my energy with me.

 

The team and I all hung out together to watch the races.

Josh started out really good.  He was in 4th and battling for 3rd when his bike stopped running.  When we got back to the pits he showed me that his pipe broke and had a huge hole in the side and lost power.I wasn’t able to go back to watch him race again on Sunday but he finished on the podium and had a great race.

While I was there I also had to go visit my Yamaha team.  I said Hi to the ladies.

I also got a private VIP tour of all the Yamaha bikes from Keith McCarty who was the head mechanic for Bob Hannah and helped him win 4 championships.  He was so nice, and it was very cool to learn all about the bikes.

If I ever wanted to get on these bikes, this is the size I would start out racing.  Not a bad fit.

My family and I had a lot of fun at the races.

Always fun hanging out with the #wienerfam

This last week I found out that one of my #wienerfam guys was going to be practicing close to my house and my family decided to go check it out.  Josh Herrin  is a 2010 Daytona 200 Champion, 2012 AMA Superbike Rookie of the year, 2013 AMA Superbike Champion, and 2016 MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Champion.

I met Josh when I was hanging out with the guys from Wienerschnitzel a few months back.  It was so cool to go and watch what he can do on two wheels.  The Meen Motorsports team was working hard doing some testing on the bike with Dunlop.

Josh took time away to talk about how he was feeling on the track and what they were working on.

Watching him ride was so crazy.  Those bikes are so000 fast!

I got to sit on his bike…its a little different than my bike.  How do you think I fit?

Thank you Josh for letting my family come out and watch you ride.

…and thank you to Meen Motorsports for the hospitality!

#WIENERFAM

This last week I traveled to sunny Southern California to visit my Wienerschnitzel family for the weekend.

image

They picked me up in the Toyota truck and we headed out for the day.

image

My first day I got to visit the Wienerschnitzel headquarters.

image

The office was huge and they had so many people working.  It takes a lot of people to run such a huge business.   I took a picture with a few of the guys from the front office.

image

I put together some “big deals”

image

I walked to halls in The Delicious Ones shoes.

image

Then an amazing message.

image

The guys had my #71 plate on the shelf with some of the other sports stuff.

image

After the rest of the tour and food, it was time to get some rest until my ride the next day.

image

The next day we drove to a track to hang out with Jeremy McGrath.  I had never met him before and it was so cool to hang out with him and to watch him ride.  He was so nice! I got some great riding tips from him.

image

There was a couple other racers at the track including Josh Hill.

image

I couldn’t believe how awesome Jeremy McGrath rode.  He was on the gas and did several 20 minute motor.  He even out rode all the other guys he was riding with and they were even younger than him.  McGrath has always been my Dad’s favorite rider so we was also very excited to meet him.

image

It was such a fun day hanging out at the track and talking with the guys and getting lots of tips.

imageimageimage

The next day the Toyota truck picked up my bike and I got to ride to the track with Chili

imageimageimage

Sadly I am not yet cleared to ride so my bike was on display next to the wienerbago

image

We were at the Transworld Mini Major race.  It was fun to watch my friends race, but it is also really hard to watch and not be able to be on the track with them.

image

I helped my friend The Delicious One race my Oset in the mini race.  I got the gate prepared perfectly for him and when the gate dropped he took off.  Great TDO!

imageimageimage

In between races I played extreme Traxxas racing with the guys.  Played been bag toss, and of course got Wienerschnitzel off the food truck!

imageimageimage

The guys at Transworld got some awesome pictures and videos of my bike and I even did an interview with Wienerschnitzel.

imageimageimage

I also got to meet another Wienerschnitzel rider Josh Herrin.  Josh is an AMA supersport champion.  It was really cool to meet him and have a chance to hang out.

image

It was such a fun weekend, I can’t thank everyone enough!  I had an awesome time hanging out with everyone.

image

Then it was time to head home.  What a weekend!
