Day one at Evansville raceway was fun and great weather but we had some mechanlcal issues throughout the day....thats racing.

My 80 RM 125 has something funny going on with it? Thought it was the carb so I did the PineSol soak and installed a new float vave and seat but it is cutting out and popping so I parked it for the weekend and both my son and I rode the 89 CR 125( in different moto's) and the bike did great!

My KTM 150 got a flat tire in practice so I scrambled to put a new tube in it and of course forgot to tap the back brake pedal to bring the pads back into the disk... I was second into the first corner and when i tried to brake.....there was nothing....well there was a pond on the right of me and the left first turn and I somehow managed to hold on and make it through the coner which gave me great position which I was able to hold although I was passed once on the last lap but I got him back before the finsh line and finished 2nd.

I got a 3-3 on the 89 cr 125 which i was thrilled with and was happy with the bike.

2nd moto on the 150 and I didn't get the start i wanted but got in a fast group and was 4-5th when i was coming down one of the big hills and my bike locked up....SUCKED! I had to take the chain off so the "tow" quad could pull me up the hill and back to my truck with my head down and not happy.

Both of my bikes out of service and another day to race tomorrow...

My son and I on the line(110) before his moto

Day 2 was a 45 Minute GP race ,1 moto all bikes together. The whole mx track was used and a field loop for a total of 3 miles per lap. I borrowed My friends 06 Honda CR 125 as he brought his KTM 300 for the gp ride( he made it less than a lap before getting a flat and DNF) my son rode the 89 cr 125.

There was a regular gate drop mx start but i let the pack take off so as not to get dowsed by the puddles on the first part of the track, I didn't have tearoffs so tried to preserve my goggles. One of the kids that came with us stalled his 450 so I stopped to help him get going and then took off as fast as I could. I rode the rest of the 45 minutes full bore and did not stop for a drink or gas( alot of people did) I passed alot of people when they stopped and on the MX track and I ended up third overall!

I had a great time and we were done racing at 10:30 Packed and left by 11:30 and home by 2:30

Great weekend of racing! all my bikes are broken but everyone got home healthy and happy.... I need to wash the bikes and start rebuilding...bikes and body...my knees are killing me.

interogate away...I ain't talking

You should come to the races and bring the kids, I love the racing,I love the competion, but what I love the most is spending time with my son and the expierence of the weekend, crappy hotels, 3 hr drives with him sleeping and drooling, I quiz him on every river we cross, 3 -15 yr old kids together is like a board meeting of the dumb society.....pricless, I figure I have 2 years left of him wanting to spend time with me so I relish anytime I can get.
