Overall everything is going really well here in ponca city! Other than the fact that it is 110 degrees outside! But my first 4 races of the week have gone really well. I have only finished outside the top ten in one race, the biggest improvement for me has been my starts this year! I have been in the front pack every moto except for one race.

Just got done with practice today here in Ponca City, OK. Overall I had a really good day and my lap times are in the top 5 in all my classes so Im feeling ready for racing! The first races start tomorrow morning at 8am and my first race of the week is CollegeBoy #27 on the race order. I will race twice tomorrow late in the afternoon. Move in yesterday went pretty well, we were the 597th race rig to enter the park this year! We still got a pretty good spot behind the start line which is nice because we dont have to push the race bikes very far to and from the track, they dont allow pit riding here. After everyone got moved in yesterday we had a tech inspection where they just check over your bikes to make sure they are safe, then we had a riders meeting. After riders meeting was church service hosted by Kevin Cozzad from Mxers For Jesus. What a blessing it is to get to spend time with them over the next two weeks of racing! Check back soon for more updates and pictures.
A few weeks ago I got an incredible opportunity to be one of the amateur rider's for the 2012 Novik Glove product photo and video shoot with Vurb Moto. I am very blessed to have Novik Gloves as a sponsor for the 2011 season. They are a colorado based company specializing in motocross gloves and they have come out with some very comfortable and cool gloves. Just wait until you see the 2012 line up from Novik Gloves. Big thanks to Bryan from Novik for the opportunity and of course all the glory goes to God for putting the right people in my path. Be sure to check out the photo's page to see one of the shots of me riding from the photo shoot, it will be the first photo that comes up.
