I have been racing and riding most of my life. I started when I was 7 or 8 riding with my Dad (he raced Motocross in the late 60's to the early 70's) and started racing at about 11. I took some time off(school, injury, kids, cancer, etc) over the years but never really left. I am fortunate enough to be able to go riding and racing with my sons now.
I have been involved with promoting as well as chairing racing organizations over the years also. I was the VP of Austin Motorsports association with over 300 rider members and the founding Chairman of South Texas Off Road Motorcyclists as well. I was also the Chairman of AMA district 20 a few years ago. Now I just go riding and racing with my friends and my sons.
We are about to start the long grind that is the AMA district 20 series leading to the AMA Texas State championship race. Its a lot of travel to different tracks but fun to race against riders I raced with 25 years ago again.
Goal number one is to do the best we can in terms of results while projecting a positive image for our many sponsors and have fun. For the remainder of 2016 I will concentrate on racing the AMA District 20 series that leads up to the AMA Texas State Championship race, and then the Texas Winter and Dealers series.
I finished 2nd in the over 50 last year and I hope to win it this year. I also want to improve on my 6th in over 40. So far this year there has been several races I did better in over 40 than over 50.
