My son Justin Richards rode inspired this past weekend, not normally a great starter, he found something special this weekend. 4 starts 2 holeshots 1-2nd place start and if he hadn't hit a downed a down rider in the 450C main he would have had another top10. So proud of this kid he works really hard on his racing and training program and the results are starting to show. Thanks to all our sponsors for their support

Great videos. Brings back memories! Looks the same as 2001, '00, '98, '97, and '88! smile

Gotta love this motorsport. A 12 year old bike (design wise) seemed to be working pretty well!

This was the 2015 vet weekend. I got 4 holeshots and was named the "Holeshot King" for the vet weekend and I got to keep that foam holeshot award board. Here's a pic of 2 of them and another of me with the foam holeshot board. I got $200 in Lucas oil certificates too!Photo

Gates 15 and 16.....excellent spots on the Mammoth start line. Gate 18 has a crack going lengthwise in it and I keep going back and forth on whether or not that crack helps traction or hurts it. Either way, if it's pros or C class, I love watching good dicing footie like this....great job! Thanks for sharing

Most dangerous start in all of motocross. Got 6 bears from that place but that start has so many crashes in every class.

Luc "Frenchie" Caouette did a little porting on the intake and we run 2 cylinder base gaskets and we modified the head to keep the stock compression ratio, I don't want to have to run straight race gas all the time.

My brother got a holeshot there from gate 40! He drew 37 out of the hat and nobody had 38, 39 or 40...so he moved over to gate 40 and lined up at a 30 degree angle with 3 empty gates to his left. He timed it, and at the top of that first rise he barely squeezed by one guy and turned a 30th+ start into a 5 bike length holeshot! We were all laughing our asses off. He went from zero to hero.....9 times out of 10 it's the other way around.

That is what almost 50 percent of the starts look like there
