From: Jay (do or die) Gruetzmacher
I did race Sat.night and I am paying for it now, I HURT!!!
I am going to take the next race off just to heal. We have a old California
rider out here that does a speedway class once in a while, and I crashed again
at the class.
Chad Mann got some real good speed going in the class and I expect him to be
a top rider next year. The man that does the class is Jeff Jones, and he says
what makes Chad so easy to teach is the fact he has not been on a motorcycle
in over 10 years, so he doesn't have any bad habits to fall back on. You tell him
to do something on the track and he does it. Don and I learned a lot about
gating. Jeff told me to quit riding hurt and take a week off and heal, so I
am because I had a bad night riding hurt!
Ron Grace (new rider) and Joe (don't use my last name) went down, DNF.
We will be racing a new track in August, small, deep, and DG on
Sundays, also being set up by Jeff Jones, and will be AMA santioned.
