For Immediate Release:Â ROUND 1 @ GLEN HELEN WEEKEND SCHEDULE! Â Â
Oh boy, where do I begin with this race? The week of the race, I was still waiting on important parts for my new â€śRat Rodâ€ť theme race quad build. I had my buddies, President and Vice President of Fasst Company coming through to help me with it, I would have been screwed without them! Big thanks to my girlfriend Rachel for keeping me sane on those late nights helped more than she knew. It was rough only getting a total of six hours of sleep in 2 days; I probably looked like Silas Roberts by the end of it allâ€¦ Hey Jack! The Rat Rod turned out sick and everybody liked it! It received over 20,000 likes from regrams and sharing on the web, so yeah, Great Success!
I loaded up Friday morning around 3AM to get to my Dirt Wheels photo shoot with the main editor Cain Smead. I was rocking out to some hardcore stuff (Taylor Swiftâ€™s â€ś1989â€ť album) to stay awake. I made it an hour early and caught up on some sleep, I had my trusty 1911 with me just in case a drifter stopped by to try and get freshâ€¦ Cain and the boys showed up and we shot for a couple hours. I canâ€™t wait, it sounds like we got the cover for the May issue of Dirt Wheels! I headed on down the road to the race site and get some sleep. After a 12 hour sleeping period, I woke up and did some testing and double check everything on the quad. I was satisfied with everything and got ready for the ever impending battle on Sunday.

First quad race of the year for Nor-Cal riders takes places January 1st at Argyll MX. Luckily for the quad guys, the race doesn’t start for them until 3pm. Plenty of time to reduce the hangover and get competitive! Don’t let the TBD scare you off. OTHG needs 12 quads, and it sounds like that many have already committed to going. There’s one gate drop for all quads unless there’s a huge turnout, and it’s a 45 minute long ordeal. Start the year off right with this super fun race.

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report
AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 10 100 MCâ€™s
Lucerne, CA – I was really excited to head down to the 7th layer of hell, Lucerne.Skyler and I loaded up from Fasst Company HQ in Washington, UT andjetted to Cali. I always hear that Biggie Smalls song Going back to Caliâ€ť thumpin in my head on race weekends, itâ€™s a good feeling. We arrived late, spoke the Blais crew and hit the hay. I stayed on the floor of the van and it felt like I was sharing a bunk in prison cell. My head was in cubby hole, I had about 4×4 of room and I have a big head, so this was really comfy. I woke up around 4AM to take a leak. As I was doing so, I heard a pack of coyoteâ€™s to my back howling into the night. It was unsettling like eating a Chipotle burrito so I got back in the van and shut the door. We awoke to a great day for some testing, low winds and great temps reaching into the high 70â€™s. I got the quad all dialed in with the help of Chris Blais and had a good time chatting it up with everyone. The wind came and it was a disaster for a bit trying to get the kids some candy and hot dogs provided by Patty Blais. Everyone had a great time and we headed for bed. Knowing I had the championship wrapped up, I slept easy.

Josh Pursell’s quadx Rnd 4 race reportSaturday practice The track was really dusty and rutted out, so I did minimal laps just to memorize the track. I knew there was gunna be some good racing with the dual lines and different obstacles. Sunday practice They watered and groomed the track, so it made for some real nice lines. I felt good out there but noticed a bit of arm pump in my left arm toward the end of practice.

AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 5
Johnson Valley, CA
This race is usually the Vikings MC round but after a decision to not put on the race, the National Hare and Hound along with other MCâ€™s stepped up to make it happen. The race was held at Cougar Buttes in Johnson Valley, Iâ€™ve never raced in that area but I was told it was fast with rock sections and cross grain whoops. I did some testing before this race to make sure it had feeling good, itâ€™s tough to match the terrain here in Utah to that of Johnson Valley. Everyone thatâ€™s raced there before know it can get rougher than Joe Bidenâ€™s split ends so I did what I could.Â Skyler and I loaded up Saturday morning; it was overcast and some light showers. It didnâ€™t stop Skyler though, he had no shirt and flip flops onâ€¦ We jetted down the road; I occasionally got up
to urinate in a Gatorade bottle, trying not to let it go all over the sprinter van. To stay active, I would do the occasional twerk while Skyler would get it on SnapChat. Good stuff, Miley doesnâ€™t have anything on me!! We arrived at Cougar Buttes pretty early and imagine this, it was WINDY but the race site was awesome! Huge rocks that I could play on while I was checking over the quad. I felt like I got it to where it needed to be.
