Andrew Short's property in Smithville, TX is arguably one of the most beautiful facilities in the country. With 300 acres that include an outdoor track that runs alongside the Colorado River, a Supercross track, and a grass track; Shorty's is a motocross haven! Between the Indianapolis and Detroit Supercross rounds, we spent a couple days at Andrew's Smithville property to bring you this fun video of Shorty ripping laps on his private Supercross track.

After a disappointing 2014 season, former factory Kawasaki athlete and past West Coast Lites Supercross champion, Jake Weimer, found himself with no ride for the 2015 season. However, Weimer's fight and determination to find a way to be on the starting line come Anaheim 1 paid off, as he eventually landed on the Monster Energy/Team Tedder Racing squad. This highlights the passion and determination be on the starting gate at all costs.

Added a new video Tested: Project 2003 Honda CR250R 1/7/2015 10:39 AM
C138x104

Realistically, the modifications done to this 2003 Honda CR250R were fairly minor. As some may forget, a two-stroke's power characteristics can be quite heavily affected just by adding a different pipe and some proper jetting. So in this case, the most major change was a custom made "works" cone pipe and silencer from Flow, with a jetting spec to match. This "works" pipe was made by Randy Blevins, who handed crafted many exhaust systems for championship winning teams. Beyond that, the engine itself was just rebuilt with an oem replacement piston kit from Wiseco, a V-Force reed valve from Moto Tassinari, and a complete clutch system from Hinson to handle a little extra abuse. Since the bike was purchased at a fairly cheap price, this left a bit of extra coin to spend elsewhere on the bike. As for hard parts, the beefier wheelset came from Dubya, which consisted of Talon carbon hubs and Excel A60 rims. To go along with the wheels, Neutech's Tubliss system was mounted on both ends to add better traction to the Dunlop AT 81 tires that would be utilized. Last up, Galfer's rear wave rotor and 270mm Tsunami front rotor were added to help bring the bike to a halt. The final years of the CRs weren't exactly the most popular when it came to handling, so a few steps were taken to try and get the best out of the bike. Ride Engineering's 22mm triple clamps were added to improve the handling, along with a re-valve and re-spring treatment from Enzo Racing to take away some of the harshness that comes from the CR's stiff chassis.

Justin mentioned it in his interview, though the clip wasn't used in this final edit. But, at one point last year, Justin was only five points out of the series lead, behind RV. I'd have to say that is being in the championship hunt. Longer and closer to it then we'll ever be! Haha

Justin Brayton is a rider who has been on the cusp of winning multiple Supercross races, and has always found himself in the hunt for a championship. However, he's not necessarily believed he's had the ability to execute. Now, Brayton has found himself back on a KTM, where he earned his first-ever podiums and outdoor Motocross win at Steel City Raceway several years ago. Joining the BTO Sports/KTM team squad, Brayton has a new-found confidence and is ready to step up and start winning come 2015.

From riding four-wheelers as a kid, racing dirt bikes on a local level, to racing Supercross, and now X Games gold medalist... Florida's own Tom Parsons has come from humble beginnings all the way to Monster Energy Cup Best Whip champion and X Games Best Whip gold medalist. Tom Parsons was recently in the neighborhood, so we decided to catch up with the Florida native to discuss his progression from struggling Supercross privateer to an X Games gold medalist, amongst many other things.

By that logic, I suppose all athletic trainers in baseball, football, etc should be fired and replaced by local EMT.
