I am studying for my final exams. I will leave on Thursday after my last exam. I am so excited for riding in 2017 LL SE YOUTH REGIONAL MAY 26-28. Can't wait to drive to Florida GATORBACK
May 5 2017
I raced May 5-7 at Moto-Vated Sports Complex in Gaston, SC and I qualified for the Gatorback 2017 LL SE Youth Regionals for May 26-28. I am one step closer to the Nationals at Loretta Lynn's MX.
I had a rough two weeks prior to the May 5-7 qualifying race sponsored by AMA at Moto-Vated Sports Complex. My dirtbike motor locked up when I was practicing and I ordered the parts to fix but they didn’t arrive in time. I begin searching the internet and reaching out to my MX community/family to find a replacement bike but was not successful. Thanks to my dad, I purchased a new bike on friday May 5, missed practice and broke in my bike riding around the track at my house. I was not familiar with my new bike or the track, but I told myself. “Wilson, just ride by Faith” My parents prayed with me and I was so nervous about racing this unfamiliar track. I QUALIFIED and very blessed to reach this goal in my racing career. Thanks to the management team at Columbia Powersports who was able to sell and have my new dirt bike ready in less than an hour. Thanks to my Family and Friends for all their prayers and support while I continue my passion to race. I absolutely love racing. Most importantly, I have developed so many new friendships in my MX community.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
