I have not updated everyone since the beginning of the season. With the season half over, we find our team continuing to charge forward and make the best of 2017. As many know, JoHannah experienced a bad accident at Ironman. Leading both Schoolgirl and WMX going into the round, she was poised to do what no other rider under 18 would have accomplished. She had won every moto in Schoolgirl and led in points in WMX. WMX has a lot of competition this year again and winning that class would have made for great racing all year. The great news is Jo is healthy and knows she had trained to be at the level she needed. Look for her return.
Tommy is now 3rd in Production A and moved to 4th now in 450A nationally. At the beginning of the season, while setting his goals high, we all knew A class was as tough as any recent year. Tommy continues to “tweak” his program and has surprised many supporters. He’s come close to 2 1st place finishes and he now knows he can win! We are all excited to see where he can take his 2017 season! By the way, he drives and maintains our rig, and attends college having one “A” and two “B’s” thus far in his classes. Couldn’t be more proud of how he’s handled all of his responsibility well.
Sammy, in his sophomore Pro year has simply had some bad luck. He’s finished in top 10 in the last two rounds, so his season is picking up. He’s had several mechanical issues that’s hurt his Pro and ProAm finishes as well. This past weekend, he was coasting to a 2nd overall in ProAm before his motor blew with 2 laps to go. Sam has the pace. And he will be on the box soon!
I’m also very proud of how well our team supports our sponsors in social media and with the funds we are raising for Childhood Cancer. I like the direction we are headed as a team. More soon. Until then, we will press forward one gate drop at a time!
WHATEVER IT TAKES!
A special thanks to Adam Sinz with AMPED Apparel for allowing us to be recognized as the official Team AMPED for 2017.
Until the next gate drop, you have my best!
