The first race of the District 22 season. After finishing 3rd in the first moto the second moto started like all others. Jessica got a bad start of fthe gate, but went hard. She got the field as they went into the hole shoot corner. Then things went real wrong, Jessica was hard on the gas and went in a little to hard as the riders in front of her bunched up she went to the inside. Hitting the rear tire of another quad she was sent head first off her quad. Hitting the ground and the her quad flipping up and landing on top of her and then bouncing off. The race was red flagged as the medics attended to her. After several minutes she was raised to her feet and walked to the awaiting ambulance. Where the medics wrapped her arm and then after a ride to the Truck. It was up to dad to take her to the hospital and there after a short wait. The doctor came in and told her she broke her Collar Bone, and wil not be able to race for several weeks. What a way to end what was to be a great day.

Jessica ends up the District 22 Series in 8th Place achiving her goal of a top 10 finish in 2007. Thank god this season is over! We started the season off riding a Polaris Predator 90cc, staying in the top 5 of the series till August. At which time we decided to upgrade to a Apex MXR90 and after this so called up grade, our season slowly went down hill but we still ened up in the top 10. Now we set our eyes on the 2008 season.

Jessica raced in her first Hare Scramble Race. A little nervous since she had never raced in this kind of race. It was a whole different kind of racing then she has been use to. After she was caught in a pile upon the hole shoot she was 10th after the first lap. On lap 2 she had moved up intothe 9th place. While in the middle of the woods she went a little wide side swiped a tree. Throwing her forward when two other riders ran into her from the rear. Her quad then runs her over and she is left next to a tree. She ends up with a very sore arm and a little dazed but is looking forward to next year to try it again.

The APEX Cursre strikes again in moto 1 of the 90 Quad Open. Afetr working on the machine all morning and going through everything the APEX post another DNF. Then in the Quad 90 Stock it happens again. We are having second thoughts about if we will continue to race this Quad next year since it appears to be a bad choice of machines. Since changing to the APEX Machine Jessica has dropped from 4th in Points to 7th.
Question is do we race the APEX in 2008 or go back to the Polaris Predator?
