Check out my buddy Draaws new race bike! He’s going to Ponca City to race! Happened to catch him at a gas station. We were able to get his autograph!
Here is some photos from Keith Demele from the 2010 Freestone National Texas Press Day. We have some helmet cam footage too. Check it out!
Houston didn’t work out like I expected. I rode the best I could for the preparation going in to these couple of races. A lot of stuff has gone down the past 2 years with personal family life. And its hard to deal with the kind of stuff that we have been through. That’s all behind and were moving forward. You think as an athlete that you still have what you had the day before. And when ever faced with any problems that interfere with your regimen makes it hard to get on track. I’m by far not finished with progressing forward with myself as an athlete, and personal aspirations. I never thought it would be so difficult to manage so many things in life with marriage and kids, (family illness, and death of a loved one) along with your passions and responsibilities. If there is any one I have for motivation, it would be my father. He’s the baddest dude I know. He can run 3 different enterprises, and be everywhere at once and do it day after day. While at the same time having cancer come up in the past 2 years, and having 2 surgery’s. He’s right back at it again like he never missed a beat. If there is anything I could ever do it would be able to follow in his foot steps, if I can follow the length in his stride. Love you dad!
With my wife, family, and friends I wouldn’t be who I am today. Houston still had some good times. And my buddy Fulton made a short appearance to put a smile on our face! I like my wife’s facial expression in the pic with fulton! Ty, Mel, and Dahlstrom are just watching the infamous Fulton. Gotta love em!
Thanks Darkside for Mechanic’n for me!
Well Dallas was kind of a weird deal. I rode good for how the track was. The transitions were really squared up, but the track started to develop after a while. After the second practice i did everything on the track except for the very end of a triple step on section. It kept eat’n everybody up so I didn’t do it. But according to the lap times I dropped back in times doing more stuff on the track than in earlier practices. It is what it is, what can you expect for a last ditch effort! It was fun and I’m keeping my head down doing the best I can with what I have in front of me!
View from my spin cycle… Wife asks me “what you riding that for?” said “to get back on track with my life!” it’s all I have done for over half my life damn near. I’m not racing full time anymore but when I do I want to be like I use to be. It was my life style, and having my heart shit come up 2 years ago threw a wrench in my gears. Not to mention balancing that with having a family! Its tough. The only cardio was on the bike, motos, and sprints. If my heart stops tickn doing something I love it’s better than sittn on the couch right! Hahah (it’s not gna stop just might skip a beat…. Or two!) Getn back to the old me!
After riding all week, I had the bike dialed in great for Sx. Only to show up and ride Daytona and the track was so rough I couldnt even pin it down a strait-away! I tried 3 different suspension settings and couldn’t get it comfortable. It was a motocross track with supercross jumps. It is what it is. I left Sunday morning and headed back to Texas. I made one shock change-up (for supercross) this week. I will be riding the next 2 weeks before Dallas sx so I will keep things updated on how its going!
First off I’d like to thank the Stewart’s for letting me come ride at their place before Daytona sx! I drove there arriving Wednesday a lil after noon. I rode for the next three days strait dialing in my bike. We got the bike really comfortable. Only need to make one change to the shock and were dialed! Here’s a vid my wife Cortni Miller filmed for me. Love you baby thanks! And ol Fulton helped me with practice, races, and driving! Thanks bud.
Ok this was my first race on the new yzf450 yamaha. And it wasn’t that great, but was definitely needed track time. It allowed me to make some adjustments to the bike and get some good gate time in before the sx rounds I’m going to attend. Racing the bike on a clean track I was able to find out my rear shock spring was too stiff! But we made some adjustments soon as I got back and now were moving forward! I finished 13th in the 450 main.
Went up to Freestone County Raceway to ride my new 2010 yz 450 on my supercross track thanks to H20 Renovations! I love the bike it is soooo sick! Feels so comfortable to ride. I had a blast up there riding with Vernon, Kevin, Draaw’s, and Phenie it was a good time ripping! Track was sick, weather was good, cant get enough! Also here is the hog skull from new years weekend, he’s got some nice teeth! We will be getting some footage and more pics soon. Thanks to Draaw’s for snap’n a few!
Me and Esteban roll up to Waco to do the Oreilly Ax fri-sat nite. Ol Vernon Mckiddie hooks me up with his crf250 to ride and tries to sabatage me! The bike has a snapped clutch cable, smoked clutches, and knobs missing on the rear wheel! Well fri nite got my doors blew off but sat I turned it up! It was a fun weekend of racing and eatn good!
