He probably would not have gotten an invite, but if he applied he would have been accepted.. Judson Wisdom was accepted and he finished 27th in 450 Pro Sport at Loretta's this year. Coty finished 30th in the same class in 2016. So, if this would have ... more »

I am pretty sure Emig's birthday is in December and he turned 50 last December. Ages for youth classes are based on your age on January 1; ages for amateur classes are based on your age the first day of the event.

Here is my understanding of the "trade". Thrasher's contract had a clause that if TLD went to a brand other than KTM, it was voided and he became a free agent. Barcia's contract had a first right of refusal clause allowing Yamaha to match any offer that ... more »

I say contact pro flo. The return on investment can be positive (assuming you don't mind taking the bike home in boxes and reassembling). Not sure how much this kid's dad has in the engine, but that is a good spread of cash and one happy kid

I believe it was actually the top 10. And yes, his son was the only one illegal.

As I know you are aware, Brett won the 7-8 year old class. Kyle was in the 4-6 yr old group, which consisted of 5 Lem's, 1 cobra, 31 PW's, and 5 misc brands. Matusek (who still races, and does well at the ranch) won, J-Law was second, and McKenzie was ... more »

Like a few years ago when a dad protested top ten in one of the 65cc classes. I believe it was rear shocks (or something rear suspension related) and his own son was the only one found to be illegal. Be careful what you ask for. bruce ps just got back ... more »

Did B&E have a shop in Crawfordsville, IN at one time. I knew Mark rode for B&E, but for some reason I was thinking out of Crawfordsville, not Valpo. And yes, Danny Bell could build a rocket, reliability, not so much; but power, absolutely. bruce ... more »

Gotta agree with these picks. If I were to put them in order, I would say; Falk, Drake, Hammaker, Halpain. bruce As for Shimoda, I think there is a kid from Utah that will beat him in one (if not both) of his classes.
