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.

The Bruce kids from Upton, WY just about 25 miles from here (in fact they have my truck and trailer there after a incident with an elk). And my next door neighbor girl Gracie Van Horn in the girls 11-14 class. Time to watch Brayden hopefully get his first podium at LL's he is up next.

We have 17 riders repping for Arizona, Michel Baker #85 30+B/C looking forward to seeing how he does.

You're trying to use logic in your post and 4stroke doesn't appreciate logic! (FACT)

Cool guys! If their motos happen either today or whenever....post up their result. Cody has 5 more motos to go. Really hoping that he gets some good finishes like his first moto. His dad and Grandpa Bob have put just about every dime they had into Cody's racing and it seems like it's starting to pay off. Pretty sure he'll be back there next year for the INT classes.....THEN.....it starts to get really serious!

La. has 13 and I know 3 personally and have been around the other 10 at some time or another.

I wish I was there to be number 14 but had to skip the regionals due to an achilles injury sustained while training on my mtb bike. I'll give it a run again next year and I'll be watching all the vet classes especially...

good luck to all those that are there

edit: I would have liked to be number 15 from this area as we had someone else from La. that would have been number 14 but had to skip as well due to a condition much worse than mine. Stay strong Stone!

joey crown - Super Mini and 85 stock. worked his way up to 4th before live timing crashed...not sure what finish was. He's also on the low end of the age group so he's got couple years in it still.

Kip and Kirk Bigelow of the Bigelow brothers from Michigan. They are both in the 50+ class and I have raced with them both quite a few times up here in D-14. Kip works for the AMA these days and both of them can still haul the mail! Go Michigan Mafia!

He was on 50's back in 2005. The picture in my first post is a picture of him on that little KTM #11. He just moved up and out of the 85cc class not quite a year ago.

Mike....is that the same Kip Bigelow that raced the nationals years ago? If so....he was a great privateer. Wasn't he on KTM's back in those days? The old white ones?

I thought you could only have ridden 2 years to race C class . But either way the kid is fast , top 20 lap times in the B class .
