We have decided to forgo the Texas State AMA series this year. Bran wants to play football and Kelly thinks we (being bran and I) could use a break. So I guess hunting , fishing, and football will be on the agenda with motocross practice to keep up the skills. We will hit some races but not hot and heavy.
Last night at TNT was a great night of racing! Bran ran good in every race. He got some really good holeshots and rode pretty smart using his head. If it hadn't been for a stall on corner 2 he would of at least got 2nd in the 65cc. He ran 5th in first moto and second in the 2nd moto which he lead the race till midway through the last lap. He ended up 3rd over all in the 65cc, 3rd over all in the 50cc Open, and 4th over all in the 7-8 50cc. All in all a really good night.
Bran had a tough weekend in Amarillo. We had a baseball game here in Shallowater Saturday morning that ran late so we missed practice. I had one of the boys run us around the track to see the changes. First up was the 65. I told him to put the bike in second gear. I didn't see the bike engage so I pulled it up again with my hand. Apparently I put it in 3rd gear. He stalled out. He fought his way back to finish 5th. Good riding! Then the 50 class. Ran ok got stuck in the pack finished 7th. We regrouped Sunday morning. He ran a heck of a race finishing 2nd but with the day before ended up 4th over all. 50 class was a tough one. Finished 6th in that race for 6th over all. I told him to forget this weekend and we'll go get them in Midland.
