AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 2 Checkers 2015
Barstow, CA 2/22/2015-Â Man, I was excited to see this new venue, only racing NHHAÂ for a few years; I never had the chance to race in Barstow. It hosts some ofÂ the gnarliest terrain on the west coast with multiple â€śSCOREâ€ť roads, very rockyÂ and not a lot of places to pass on the virgin parts of the course. I had theÂ â€śRat Rodâ€ť prepped and ready for battle in the high California desert. I had theÂ engine redone after the first race along with changing my Elka SuspensionÂ around a bit. The quad was amazing!Â As aÂ Massachusetts native would say â€śMy Moto Xperts/Hot Cams/Hot Rod/CylinderÂ Works/Vertex Piston TRX engine is a rippa!â€ť I also, have to thank Jay at ImpactÂ Solutions for dialing in my Elkas, they worked really hard for me to make themÂ the best they can be. Did some shock tuning with Alex and James Ortiz out at their house had a lot of laughs and got my quad working great.
I ended up driving down by myself to pick up some race fuelÂ from RSI and my main man Jay Young of Team True Racing delivering it to SkylerÂ and I. That was a huge help to both of our programs so thanks to them. I had toÂ stop several times on the way as I was having some stomach issues early on, IÂ felt like Harry Dunn (Dumb and Dumber) when Lloyd pours him some â€śsuperlaxâ€ťâ€¦.Haha! I had finally made it to the race site and settled in. My girlfriend
Rachel and her dad showed up shortly after. We got everything ready and rode aÂ couple times to give the quads a shake down. I did some minor changes to theÂ shocks and they were better than ever. I was Dungey pumped!
