Loretta's AMA Amatuer MX Nationals...

...on a 28 yr old 2 Stroke!!!!

I don't know how many people on here follow the Lorretta Lynn's Amatuer MX Nationals, but I just saw this story on RacerX this morning and thought this was awesome.


article highlights:
"You want ups and downs? Jerry Robin, everyone’s favorite rider, the kid who qualified in the B class on a 1985 Honda CR250, won the first moto of the day. And he did it in everyone’s favorite class—Two Stroke! But, Robin didn’t do it on his trusty ’85, because it wasn’t so trusty. The poor thing blew up in practice, but he was loaned a 2007 Honda to race the Two-Stroke Class. And he straight up won the darned moto!"

later on in the article:

"In 250 B, Factory Connection Honda’s Jordon Smith is the favorite, but he struggled huge in the slop until his bike finally quit. Scratch Jordon from title contention in this class. Aaron Plessinger, like McSwain the son of an off-road star (multi-time GNCC Champion Scott Plessinger), lays a whipping on the field in the mud. That's two moto wins in two starts this week for A-Pless. By the way, Jerry Robin got the 1985 CR250 rebuilt and raced it in this B class moto. In the mud! He finished ninth. Kid is legit."

They are going to be showing some motos live on NBC this Saturday as part of the Red Bull Signature Series. You know this kid is going to get some pub out of this.

I have been following it and yes, great story - I love the whole aspect of LL

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Didn't someone post a story about the kid on the old Honda during the qualifiers? He's not only determined but shows great talent!
Here's a thought...maybe we could do a ride to one of the local qualifiers next year and see some of the local talent up close as they secure their spot for Loretta Lynn's!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
