Another weekend of racing.  Spent all last week getting LoneStar BMX back into shape and able to be raced on.  We had about 40 riders show up and 10 motos.  Had some total points and some big motos.  We even had a kid move up to Intermediate and 3 first time racers. 

Sunday started out at 5am with a 6am drive to Pearland, TX for their State Qualifer Race at Pearland Speedway.  It was triple points and had a $3,100 Pro Purse.  79 motos of racing with 2 motos of Pros.  The weather was great for racing and the track was is GREAT!!! shape.  Saying SMOOTH doesn’t do it justice, might just have been the smoothest track I’ve been on all year.

Zoie had 4 girls in the 7-year-old Girls and Brody I think had 7 in 9 Expert.   Zoie and Brody had a good time playing with their friends that they don’t see every day and had fun.  Zoie came home with a 3rd and Brody a 4th.  Brody was looking really fast and had a great gate throughout the day.

The Pro race brought out a few big names in BMX.  Jason Rodgers, Tim Kneip,  John Purse, Dennison Smith and Andres Holguin were all looking fast in the qualifiers.  Low points would get to pick their lanes in the main so the action was tight all 3 rounds.  With a tight first turn and Big guys going in full throttle 4 men entered 3 came out.  Jason went over the top and into the crowd.  TNT and Jackle were opening it up through the track with Dennison right there and that’s how they finished.

If Texas had a State Pro Series, Tim Kneip would be leading it with 3 First place finishes going to the guy with the 512 on his plate.
