Dang!......I was going to post this last night and I forgot. But Just got a text from his dad that my little buddy Cody Herzog just won his first moto!!!!!! in the 450 C Stock class!! Yeeehhaaaww!
OK.....so I have a couple guys that have made the trip over to Loretta Lynn's for the big race. Cody Herzog and Trevor Brooks.
Cody will be riding #35 at LL's ( normally #135 ) in the 250 C Stock and 450 C stock classes and Trevor Qualified to run the " Junior 25+ " class ( same class as RC!!! ).
Known Cody since he was tearing up my AX track I used to run on his little 50cc bikes and I grew up with his dad Craig and Cody's grand father Bob at the races. Cody did really well in his qualifiers a while back down in CA. I think he won the 450 C stock class and took 2nd in the 250 C stock class. One thing I can say about Cody is....he was always appreciated everything. He never took one thing for granted.....and out of 4 yrs of running an arena cross track.....he ALWAYS came up to thank me for letting him ride there every single time he was there.
I find that there are a lot of kids out there today that expect everything should be handed to them....almost like "mini factory racers" or something. Never say "please" or "Thank you".....they just demand stuff. Cody isn't and hasn't ever been like that. If you get a chance to ever say hello to him do it....he's a great kid!
As far as to where Trevor ( #63 at LL's normally #263 ) qualified in his races I am not sure.....but Trevor turned out to be a great rider and helps train Cody. I wish them both good luck this next week and I'll be rooting for them both here at home. Trevor is also partnered up with Mike @ Crazy Money productions. He does a lot of the filming and so forth up here in the NW. Super cool guy and I think that's why him and Cody get along so well.
AND.....He gets to race against RC!! I think he's looking forward to it and I wish him the best of luck too!
If you guys have anyone you know competing at LL's......post up some info about them. Maybe we'll find some of these guys in the same classes.
Picture Cody Autographed for me in about 2005.....and still have it on my fridge.
And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
