I literally feel sick to my stomach for this. The kid was a phenomenal talent and it's just such a shame. Far too young.
RIP little guy


I am with Matt. I've been following this kid for 3 or 4 years since I caught some YouTube videos of him ripping up the track on a pocket bike. He certainly seemed to be the next great thing. We lost a star today.

I wonder what's running through the minds of the parents. I'm sure they considered the risks, but his talent was far too much to just say it's too dangerous. I feel really bad for them.

I'm right with you Greg...Vicki and I are sitting here with sunken hearts. We watched the interview there at the SpeedTV stage with he and about 5 other USGPRU 250 racers yesterday...

Godspeed.

He missed most of the 2009 season recovering from injuries sustained when he crashed into a tire wall at Portland (Ore.) International Raceway. He required several surgeries to repair a severed radial nerve and several broken bones: tibia, femur, fibula just above the boot line and humerus just above the elbow.
He and the others talked about their "scariest moments" on track in the interview yesterday. He showed everyone the scar on his leg.

Unbelievable.

Yeah, he was definately one tough little sob. What's just as bad is the kid who ran him over has to live with that at only 13 years old. Shitty deal all around.

It's never any parent's desire to have to bury their child.

God bless the parents for the amount of money they invested in this little short stacks skills. I mean seriously as a parent how do you figure out you kid has a nack for moto racing at 5?

Shit 90mph bike 400 laps on tires and ripping it up WOW just shows the parents arent heavy in the pockets

RIP

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Exactly my point. I can only imagine how they feel for letting the little guy race. They shouldn't feel that way. He was doing what he was born to do.

Someone posted this on his fb page which has basically become a memorial.
While i can understand the thought i was still filled with an urge to slug the guy in the face.

Jesus. So young with sooooo much talent. I've watched his videos before and was amazed at how the kid would blow by 600s and 1000s on a 22hp bike and not to mention only being 10-11? years old. I especially feel for his parents. RIP.
