Derek Drake has been sneaking under the radar at Loretta's this year. There's a lot of talk about Falk turning pro during the nationals next summer with TLD, but Drake has been putting in some great rides at the ranch. Is he going to be turning pro next summer as well? After Loretta's next year? After Loretta's this year? Michael, got any more info on this? It's rare to have a team like TLD field two top A riders at Loretta's. Do both get the pro contract?

Drake told us he’s turning pro at Hangtown next year, if all goes according to plan. Damn nice kid, respectful, and well spoken

Been really impressed with him, his ride in the second 250 A moto was one of the best I've seen so far.

He needed another 200 feet and he would've passed Falk.

Here's to feeling good all the time

At the 2016 AZ open, Faulk was in in 250 B and Drake was in Schoolboy and they didn't race each other then (Cantrell was in the A class). There was one section where Faulk looked fast jumping from one jump almost to the base of the next jump. But then this kid in schoolboy sent it all the way to the base of the next jump in the same spot and I remember thinking he is faster than the the kid in the "faster B class" or at least pecking order at KTM amateur at that time. The kid is the real deal. Might be the next J. Cooper.

He has really cool style, too. His style reminds me of a shorter version of Seely.

Just got that 250A title according to racerx insta!

Drake earned that 3rd moto win. Was super impressive in all 3 250a motos. Seems smart, fast, and respectful. It will be interesting to see what he does at the pro level....even if its 9 months away
