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!

They have been the main reason NEATV can continue to support the growth of the sport in both motocross and cross country ATV racing.â€ť

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.
As we prepare for our next trip to Buffalo Bills Casino I always get excited about how many ways we can alter the course. At this round there will be 4 different courses for Motorcycle, ATV and SXS and Youth. The moto course will be expanded with a new section just in front of the viewing berm. Hot pits will be on the pavement again as will the awesome Vendor Row. Pro Bike and ATV will race at the same time on their own
