We are officially on our way home from our two week racing and training trip to Texas. What a great trip, awesome opportunity, and huge blessing this trip has been. The picture to the left was taken during a practice session last week at 3 Palms Mx Park. 3 Palms was the track we practiced at while staying in the Lake Conroe, Thousand Trails Campground. My girlfriend Brittany was able to fly into Houston while we were staying at the campground and what a blessing it was to have her on this trip as such a big support system. The week of training and resting at Lake Conroe was great! We headed up to the Freestone Mx Track on Friday afternoon for a full weekend of racing the South Central Loretta Lynn Regional Qualifier. My racing day on Saturday did not go very well. I was playing huge head games and I mentally beat myself up, it took me a long time to recover! By Saturday night my Mom, Dad, and Brittany had me out of my tail spin and proud of where I am at with my racing. What a difference an attitude adjustment made! I knocked almost 14 seconds off my lap times from Saturday to Sunday. This weekend was also very demanding physically! I was in 4 classes and it was a 3 moto format so I raced 4 times Saturday and 8 times on Sunday with most of my races being back to back in the extreme Texas heat! I really feel that we left on a positive note and I am very motivated to put in the work that is going to be required to compete at the next level. I ended the weekend not qualifying for Lorettas in any of my classes. But we still have one more shot at the North Central Regional in Illinois a few weeks away. Most likely if you are reading this you have helped me in my racing career and I cannot thank you enough for helping me chase my dream! Special thanks this weekend to my Mom, Dad, and Brittany! They all three helped me so much this trip and stuck it out in the heat! All of the glory goes to God for all of the opportunities that I have had!
