philG they rarely did live stuff back in the day. Instead, they would shoot live-to-tape and then edit it down to whatever length of show was needed, then bring in Dave or Larry or Art or David Bailey to do a voice-over at the TV production company, ... more »

Kkawboy14, usually it's a combination of things. The network might have their available talent on contract (Todd Harris with ESPN) or the TV company might have someone they really like (Art and David were working together under the Seals TV production ... more »

Mark, all of the stuff that the Glen Helen gang did for Tom in the past year was really cool and thoughtful and well done, from the surprise movie night tribute to the statue to the trophies at the Vet National, to this, with lots more I'm sure in between. ... more »

That's super nice of you to say that, flatout111. Of all the things I've been fortunate enough to do in the sport, working every weekend with Art and David and just bench-racing all of the time with them (and Scott McLemore and Brett Smith and more) ... more »

Huckster, oh man, good luck with that -- hockey is a lot of early mornings and a lot of travel tournaments. But so is motocross! The Gladwell book explains that when you are born on the calendar can have a profound effect in that the closer to the cut-off ... more »

MX-LIFE wrote Hey DC, how is it that he can't race a AMA National or a SX race? Lack of funding or age? He can enter a National or SX, but then he can't race Loretta Lynn's if he qualifies for the actual event for a full year. And I remember that, it ... more »

Brown currently rides for factory Husky and shows up with a bike (or 2 or 4) built by them. Have you ever looked under an amateur factory-support team's tent to see how many bikes they have for their top 65cc or 85cc riders? We all wish things could ... more »

Reply to Mike Brown an amateur and a pro at the same time?? 10/23/2017 6:17 AM

Loretta Lynn's is an AMA Amateur, Youth and Vet National. The shorthand for it is "Amateur" national, but there are specific classes for all three categories -- and some Vet classes allow former pro and current pro-ams; some don't. Mike Brown races in ... more »

That article was a lot of fun, and we got great help from Pro Circuit, Throttle Jockey, the AMA and more... But it wasn't in an actual national; it was the day before. They let us try to tech the bike and ride the last practice. That was about it; never ... more »
