Here are the photos from Soaring Edge Raceway on sunday October 28th 2007. I am still having troubles with my photo store as I have reached the storage limit for that website, and the only way to add more there is to delete them all and start over. Well that is allot easier said than done and I just don't have the time or money right now to work on getting my photo store limit increased. So all the photos from Last weekend and this weekend will be in this format and the digital version is FREE with no watermark. I know everyone will prefer this way over the other way because you can see more photos all at once and none of them are watermarked, plus you can get a large version with out paying for it. this means you are able to view a larger version than you would be able to on my store. The photos are not the originals but they are still 1600 x 1024. <MORE>

Earlier this year I also launched a Forum that I have not had much time to promote or even talk about. Right now I have 27 members and slowly the forum is getting bigger and better. So I am looking for forum members www.ridersmeeting.com and to a select few new members I will grant moderators privileges. If you are interested in joining my forum with moderators privileges. Also my plan in the next few years for RidersMeeting.com is to have a central location where all tracks at local and national level can post their Rules, Results and event calendars. Riders Meeting is the perfect name for the perfect place to chat about all the races. I believe that if we all got together Riders Meeting could be what it's name suggests. So if would like to join and help promote my forum. Please contact me at racertoy1@cox.net



With the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series opener in Des Moines Iowa coming November 2nd 2007, it is one of the areas biggest events and a great place to see how you stack up this year against the pro's. It's also that time of year when the weather becomes unpredictable here in the midwest so getting in a few days of practice before the big race is exactly what is needed. What better way to practice than to practice on a Scaled model of an actual arenacross track. Well hidden in the valleys and thru grazing fields of Iowa such a place does exist. This private track is only shared with the Cattle. The first few times I went to kneel down to get a good angle on a corner shot, I got a whiff of something foul, Yup a few inches from where I placed my knee was fresh cow dung. It only took me a couple times before I remembered to watch where I step and where I decide to plant my self. Arenacross veteran Travis Hodges was on hand getting in some seat time, and Ricky Draper was also there putting in some blazing fast lap times. Ricky is on a comeback mission. Recently Matt Draper wrote in with a Ricky Update from Branson, his first big race since his crash earlier this year:

Hey everyone, just a quick summary of the week's events in Branson...Ricky's first big race since his injury...Moto 1 in 250 pro pulled a 3rd place start and then hit another bike in turn four, bending his front brake rotor. With no front brake he finished 27th. In moto 2 he started about 15th then lost four positions adjusting his clutch, he went from 19th all the way up to 12th by the end of the moto. With a 27-12, he ended up 20th overall. In the 450 pro, they had 36 entries so he had to qualify for a Sunday runoff, he came in with a 12 and in the runoff scored an impressive 9th after holding 6th for most of the race. He definitely turned a corner as we head into Arenacross season...

Also on hand were a few of the areas young hopeful future Arenacross, Motocross & Supercross Stars, they too were getting in their work before their big day in Des Moines. Pardon me for not getting their last names but Seth on bike 531, Nick on bike # 723 & Dillon Cloyed on Bike #97 were having allot of fun and enjoying a beautiful October day. At one point near the end of the day, Matt Draper put a challenge out to both Nick and Seth. If they jumped the first double of the set of tripples then they would make it to the Racertoy.com home page with Travis Hodges & Ricky Draper. Well Seth was first to take the charge and once he did, Seth jumped it time after time, Nick took a little longer to hit it, but he made the leap. His first time Nick came up a little short, but he was not going to give up so he went for it again and the second time, he would have had it fine but he landed a little off and was pitched from the bike. You guessed is I was there to get it on camera. Even though he didn't quite make it I felt that his efforts must be rewarded. Nick really gave it his best effort at that point, Mostly it's a good thing he didn't fly a little further because there was a few fresh cow patties less than 5 feet from where he hit the ground. SO he avoided that mess that's for sure. Cleaning off a little dust is much better than having to ride home in the back of the truck because of a little smelly left over's from the cattle. <MORE>

Toyota AMA Arenacross Series Opens In Des Moines (From Arenacross.com)
Danny Smith (TUF/Honda) returns to defend title vs. a host of veteran greats and future stars of AMA Supercross Series

AURORA, Ill. (Oct. 3, 2007) – The 2007-’08 Toyota AMA Arenacross Series opens in Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. 2-4 at Wells Fargo Arena, featuring the best arenacross racers in the world battling for the prestigious title of Toyota AMA Arenacross Series champion.

The Toyota AMA Arenacross Series’ defending champion, Danny Smith (TUF/Honda), will stage defense on his first title. Racing his first full year of Toyota AMA Areancross Series, Idaho’s Smith engaged in an epic battle with Oklahoma’s Robbie Reynard (Reynard Modifications/Honda) that brought the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series’ title chase right down to the last race in Nashville, Tenn. While Smith would win the title by 17 points, Reynard, a longtime legend in AMA Motocross/Supercross, won over the fans and is expected to return to action in Des Moines to take another shot at the crown.

“The city of Des Moines has become well known to the arenacross community as the launching pad for the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series,” said Jayme Dalsing, director of arenacross for Live Nation. “Wells Fargo Arena will be packed to see one of the most competitive fields the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series has seen to start the season in the history of the sport."<MORE>

Private Practice Location Disclosed
For the first time in more than a month the weather was bearable, with low humidity and perfect 72 outside it was time to ride. Plus it had rained the night before and with sand you definatly want some rain. This track is perfect for a workout and some good hard practice. Cody Gilmore and Adam Daniels stopped out for a few minutes to check out the conditions, but cody is still on the mend and needs to say clear of the really rough stuff for a little longer. <MORE>

All the Practice and First Moto Photos are uploaded. so CLICK HERE TO VIEW THEM
I have taken a few of my favorites and also put them in a folder called "Some of my Favorites"
Make sure to check those out, also Make sure to Check out the Photos from the 250cc A race,
There are allot of really good photos in that race so don't miss that one.
Well thank you for your patience and I will continue to add photos for the remainder of the week.

If you were unable to make it to the races on Saturday you missed a good turn out. We had some fast racers that made for some great racing and second motos were great under the lights. They prepped the entire track during intermission and they also watered the entire track as well. The first set of motos were a little dusty but the track was in prime condition in the 2nd moto. I will have the complete story posted once I have all the photos Uploaded.

I have finally started to get some of the friday Photos uploaded from Little Sunset. I will probably not be able to get all these photos uploaded by the weekend, but I am making every effort to getting them all up. I was shooting with out a flash friday night so when the sun started to go down It got allot more difficult to get good quality photos, But I believe I still got some good ones of allot of the racers. If You do not see photos of you or of the one you were looking for photos of, I apologize but I was not able to get photos of every race, or every moto but I did get allot from most of the heat races.
Thank you all for your support and have a great week.





Kortney's feature battle
Saturday night at Nebraska Raceway park was a beautiful night to race, with no threat of rain Travis Pastrana set to race dirt track and Kenny Bartram pulling a double feature giving the fans a freestyle Demo with Ryan Logan & James Carter. Their high flying freestyle motocross big air tricks right in front of the stands was more than something to talk about it was breath taking for most of the fans here Saturday night, and talk about a front row seat. I-80 Speedway gave everyone in attendance the perfect seats for the show. Ryan Logan & James Carter both riding 250cc 2 stroke motocross bikes would give the crowd a small teaser during intermission, with Kenny bartram also racing Dirt track there just was not enough time during intermission for him to get ready for freestyle then get back to the dirt track.
Veteran Ryan Logan gave the crowd a quick taste of what was to come throwing some sick tracks that had the crowd gasp at times. Then with James Carter, who just started jumping freestyle in November of last year, showed the crowd that he was no beginner. Carter may have less than a year under his belt but from his style and technique he looked like he had been jumping with Bartram and Logan for years. So now they are here in Nebraska giving the crowd what they paid for and more.
With multi time X-Games Gold Mentalist Travis Pastrana and Freestyle legend Kenny the Cowboy Bartram also on hand the crowd was in for a real treat this Saturday night. I mean if you think about it, how often, or how far do you have to travel to see these guys, it's pretty rare to have them come to your home town, let alone get the chance to compete with them on your turf. Well one such battle this weekend included local racer Kortney Kosiski, this 17 year old, driving a Crate Late model would find her way through the qualifiers to the Feature with Travis Pastrana in the same class as Kortney. You have got to think that this 17 year old was super excited that she was pitted with Travis let alone be able to compete with him. I mean just a few short weeks ago we Saw Travis Pastrana <MORE>




This weekend was kicked off with Kart racing at little Sunset Speedway one of the great things about Nebraska Raceway Park in Greenwood Nebraska is that they are host to all the fun this weekend. Starting Friday night with Travis Pastrana here to race cars on Saturday and Sunday night, and Kenny Bartram also racing dirt track he will be performing a Motocross Freestyle demo with, Ryan Logan & James Carter at I-80 Speedway Saturday and Sunday during intermission and after the races. Travis is only here to race cars but Kenny Bartram, Ryan Logan & James Carter will be performing their freestyle demo right in front of the grand stands, you will be so close to them doing their tricks you would feel like you can reach out and touch them. Don't miss the events this weekend.

Friday night Pastrana, Bartram, Logan and Carter came in a day early to try their hand in racing Karts. With the infield packed with racers for Friday nights events, it was like any other night at the races here at Little Sunset, except this time the regulars get to race with their hero, to most of the youth and even the adults Travis and Kenny are more than heroes tonight they are regular guys here to have fun just like every one else. Travis and Kenny embraced their fans with openness and true kindness, and the fans were just as respectful of them.
The riders meeting explained some of the rules and regulations as well as listing the race order for Friday nights events.
In the first practice rain was threatening on canceling tonight's events, and the track had a slight glaze on the surface that made it somewhat difficult for event the track regulars. Being the first time Travis had raced this kind of track with Karts, Travis the true racer took his time and focused on learning the vehicle and track. The vehicles they were driving are the track rentals and are probably not the most highly tuned vehicles on the track, but still <MORE>



From I-80 Speedway, Nebraska Raceway Park.

On Sunday, August 12,  X Games Superstar Kenny "The Cowboy" Bartram will perform his amazing backflips on his motorcycle right in front of the grandstands. Bartram, who is working on making the move to stock car racing, will also be driving the #80 Novice Crate. Joining him will be motocross rider Ryan Logan.

The 29-year-old, also known as “Cowboy,” is a four time gold medalist and the 2005 Dew Action Sports Tour Cup winner.  Bartram also has 57 career IFMA wins to his credit. All of his success has come with some form of payment including 20 broken bones, 7 knocked out teeth, a steel plate in his jaw, and a ruptured blood vessel in his brain.  Bertram has placed each injury in his rear view mirror to win again and again. 
About his nickname, Bertram says it’s more politically correct than “the hick from Oklahoma.” 
“To the mainstream guys from California that drive low riders and listen to rap music, I seem like a cowboy,” said Bertram. 

Advance tickets are only $10 through Friday, August 10th, and are available by calling the track office at 402-342-3453 or at the track on race days.  Tickets after August 10th are only $15 for the event including the exciting action of the Dodge Super Late Models, Certified Transmission Pro Ams, Modifieds, Hobby Stocks and Novice Crates.

Before the races, join the fun at the I-80 Speedway Sizzling Summer <MORE>




I am having trouble with my database and at this time I am unable to upload photos to my Photo Store. I am working to get this problem corrected.

Again I am working to get this problem corrected and I will let you know when I have began to upload the photos to the store.

Thank you Randy 10:00pm Tuesday August 7th

Kevin Stroeher Help Feed the "Sweet Dog" (August 7th 2007)





Sweetdog Injury Update – 8/7/07

I’m finally out of the hospital!  For those of you who haven’t heard, I crashed on a small double at Marne on 7/7/07 and crushed my T5 vertebrae, which put pressure on my spinal cord.  I also broke a few ribs.  Originally, I had lost all feeling and movement from the neck down.  I felt so lucky to have Dr. Dan Fliam out on the track to give me an initial diagnosis.  He said, “Kevin, quit being a pussy.  You got the wind knocked out of you.  Get up and walk it off and get back on your bike.”  Boy, was Dr. Fliam wrong!  After a 5 hour surgery and 2 ½ weeks in the hospital, I’m now at home.  I have to wear a plastic shell around my midsection for 8 to 12 weeks.  I stabilize my neck with a brace as well.  I still have nerve damage in the stomach area and down my legs.  Doctors say it may get better, it may not.  I’m just thankful I can walk.  My walking is a little unstable but it seems to slowly get better each day. 

I want to thank everyone for all the support I have received.  The numerous phone calls, visits, and cards has been unbelievable.  It has made the days go by a lot easierknowing everyone is out there pulling for me.  What a great bunch of people in our motocross family!!  A special thanks to Eric Kohl and Randy Toy for making and selling the Sweetdog 85 stickers and to the motorcycle dealers that participated.  A big “Thanks” to all of you that purchased the stickers as well.  I could have a long recovery and this will certainly help.  I’m hoping to get to a race sometime in October to cheer everyone on.  Hope to see you soon and thanks again everyone!

July 30th 2007

A hard rain the night before gave the track crew some work to do this afternoon to prep for this evenings event. With the threat of rain again, an hour before race time the clouds took a turn and cleared up for race time. The track was working into a good surface for racing. The high line looked to be the lane of choice if you wanted to maintain your position. However in one if the qualifiers a heated battle for first resulted in one car on the high line and the other deep to the inside, with a classic motocross move the driver on the inside swept wide pushing wide the current leader steeling the position as well as swapping paint. In my world, the one of Motocross and Motorcycle racing this is a normal thing and rubbing is racing. Neither driver seemed to have lost control and neither were going to back off, so naturally only one of them would get the job done. It turned out the winner was docked 2 positions for rough racing. And the heat win went to the second place driver.
"Cowboy" Kenny Bartram really stepped up to the plate tonight and showed that he was not afraid to mix it up with the regulars. Kenny qualified for the feature near the back of the pack, but he qualified. By the second lap Kenny was pushing hard riding the <More>




You may or may not have seen today's Omaha World Herald, so if you missed it click on the image to the left and you can read the article. Cowboy Kenny Bartram will be racing at I-80 this weekend in a Dirt Track race car. If you recall several weeks ago, I was on hand to take photos for Kenny at I-80 speedway Nebraska Raceway Park. Ed Kosiki had loaned "Cowboy" Kenny one of his rides and at the same time got some lessons from Kenny Edwards. It all leads up to this weekend as it will a great time to watch the "Cowboy" race dirt track. So Sunday at I-80 Speedway Nebraska raceway Park, even if your not a fan of dirt track, you will be after rooting for one of your favorite freestyle motocrosser, so you need to go, you must go, you simply can not miss this.
You might recognize the name listed just below the photo in today's paper, that's correct the photo you see at the bottom of the article is a photo I took a few weeks ago of Kenny. Well everyone don't miss the action this weekend, it will fe full of excitement.




It was HOT!!!HOT!!!HOT!!! Sunday, and the race action was just as HOT. In virtually every class there was a battle from first to last and there were some really great races. With the heat boiling over 90 the track was suffering by the time the ATV's hit the track. After that it was tough for any one other than 1st to see further than their front fender. It's tough for any track to survive a day like this. But all in all Fox Run had a decent turn out considering the Ponca Nationals were also running the same weekend. I have several thousand photos to process from sunday so I am still hoping I can get them all uploaded by late Thursday evening. Please be patient as I am working as late in the evening as I can. I have several of the practices and 1 or 2 of the first races already uploaded so check them out.
Chase McGrath was on cruise control all weekend taking the holeshot in every moto and in dominating faction lead every lap from start to finish. At one point I herd some spectators speaking with each other and one of them said "He makes it look so easy" I smiled and thought to my self. "He sure does!" Chase went 4 for 4 on the weekend. Great racing Chase.

GO TO THE RACES This weekend (July 18th 2007)



RACE WEEKEND!!! Triple Header Starting Friday July 20th

WHO WANTS TO RACE!!! WELL HERE IS THE LINEUP.
FRIDAY!! OmahaBMX (Hefflinger Park Omaha)
What better way to start the weekend of racing, yes why not get your work out the old fashioned way, ride a BMX bike. You train at the gym and you ride a bike and literally get no where.

Ricky Draper Update (July 16th 2007)


Ricky Draper Update (July 18th 2007)

Just a quick note out to the racing world concerning Ricky's progress. I can't tell you how much all the calls and e mails have meant to Ricky and our entire family. This is the first summer since he started racing (12 years) that he hasn't been able to get on the bike and it has really been eating at him.
 
The post-surgery check-ups have all gone well and now he has started physical therapy. The screws have held the humerus intact as we had hoped and now it's just a waiting game. We're looking at mid-August to return to the practice track.Ricky will be attending Loretta Lynn's and Millville to cheer on his teammate Mikey Weese as well as other buddies. When he gets back he ought to be pretty pumped! We are planning on running a good portion of the National Arenacross series this season, teaming with Weese for the 2007-08 tour. That's all for now, see you at the races!

Kevin Stroeher Update (July 12th 2007)





Kevin Stroeher Update Thurday July 12th:

After surgery and all went as well as expected.  They used part of a femur from the MX bone bank (Kevin joked) to form a new vertebrae bone, one got crushed.  They relieved pressure off the spinal cord, and placed a small rod and 10 screws for support.  Kevin said getting the pressure off made him noticable more comfortable. The best news is that he is not expected to lose any sensations to his legs and arms.  He also earned bragging rights due to a large cut on his back.   Julie said his tongue is sore and a little swollen.  With full respect towards Julie, I asked, "was it from starring at all of the nurses"!  She laughinly confirmed, it was from the breathing apparatus. He will probally be in the hopital a week with a dusty trail full of support ahead.
Kevin really appreciates having such great family and friends to share the love and support for SWEETDOG 85.

He had surgery last night to relieve preasure and bone fragments from the spinal cord. Doctors were telling Julie things were going well.  I will post an update as I hear more about Kevins condition.

HOT!!! HOT!!! HOT!!!Yes it was hot, it was a scorching 98 today with an 80% humidity factor. But that didn't stop several hundred racers from racing this weekend at Pine Hill MX in Marne, Iowa. Even though it was hot there was a breeze that was just enough to take the edge off. There were 40 great motos of racing and allot of the great racing was due to some unbelievable conditions, I'm speaking about the dirt. WIth the sun shining bright and the heat blazing down, and a small breeze one would think by the 12 to 15th race it would be a dust bowl. Well it was far from that. The dirt stayed <More>


Kenny Bartram Driving Dirt Track


Will Nielsen of Nielsen Productions was running the Video camera to capture Kenny "Cowboy" Bartram's first time in a Dirt Track car. The former World Freeride Association (WFA) Freestyle MX Champion was in Omaha this week on an invite to come and drive dirt track at Nebraska Raceway Park "I-80Speedway" on their 4/10ths mile dirt track. He was taking instructions from Kenny Edwards, younger brother of Nascar's Carl Edwards. The Edwards Crew was on hand taking their practice laps in preparation of the coming event on July 22nd at Nebraska Raceway Park (Carl Edwards Night). Kenny Bartram was impressing the professionals with his ability to drive a car. After a few short laps Bartram was putting in some really fast lap times. More than the lap times was his overall control of the car. I had asked Edwards how he though kenny was doing and where he needed to improve. Edwards said " He has great exit speed and control, but he needs to work on his entrance to his corners. But all in all for only having less than 15 laps ever in a car like this, with the way he is driving he could hold his own in the night race."

Sunday was kicked off at 10 am with Practice for the Friday Makeup Double points race. Most of the racers racing the morning race were also going to race the Redcup Qualifier later in the day. So the normal intence battles in some of the classes were backed down a notch by the riders to concerve energy for the Redline Qualifier. Dean Bush was onhand for practice, but he was not there to race today, but he still showed every one that he still means buisness, he tackled the Pro-Section with relitave ease clearing both doubles before any of the other riders had a chance. Allgood was definatly puting the best style into the jumps, and there were some others who were also clearing both doubles by the end of practice.

Saturday June 23nd
What better way to spend a beautifull saturday afternoon than to spend it with family and friends. An event like this always starts with the people who make this happen. I am fairly new to the OmahaBMX and MountCresent BMX races, but it doesnt take long to fall in love with the whole experience. I go back to what I started to say about where it all starts, and when you have some one that takes part in the events as well as cordinating the events, someone that enjoys the people and the sport that he dedicates alot of his time to, and some one who is just good to be around. Well for give me if I can't remember his name but I have him featured in the photo to the right. Well thank you for puting on such a great event. I look forward to attending tomorrows event the OmahaBMX - Redline Cup Qualifier - Triple Point's race.
Signup starts at 10:00 am. And remember tomorrow is also the makeup race from friday's rain out.

Tonight we had some great racing action and a couple crashes, to see photos of these crashes you can go to this events photos by clicking on the links above or the images on the left. Rememer to thank your track officials for helping put on this event for you, alot of work and money go into these races and it's because of them we all are able to have a great time. Thank you for inviting me back to attend your event.

Friday June 22nd (Re-Scheduled for Sunday)
The weather stopped all the action this evening, but it did not stop my camera from taking a few shots. Granted I didn't get any photos of the racers in action but I did manage to get a few canded shots while everyone was waiting to see weather or not the race would continue. At about 5:30 the rain just dumpd down on the OmahaBMX course in Hefflinger Park Omaha, NE about 110th just south of maple.
Even though the race was canceled they had a great turn out for a rain event, as every one mingled and talked about the coming weekend, the kids were ready to rock and roll. It it was not so much work to repair the track after a mud race I think the kids would have loved to get a little muddy.
Some of the areas finest were on hand ready to race. Jim Milroy, local professional Superbike Racer was there to try and best last weeks second place finish. In one of the premier classes. Then there was Dean Bush. Dean has been nationally ranked in BMX and has the speed to really make a run for the win where ever he races.

US Mini Road Race By www.miniroadrace.com
Great racing all day long at round 5 of the USMRR series. Sunny skies and a light breeze greeted the riders.
The F1 one class was a battle all day with lap times dropping throughout the day as competitors upped their pace to run up front. The first heat saw points leader Nate Lentz (rs50) take the victory, while Kinzer Naylor (xr50) took the victory in heat #2.The main looked to be a great race between the top three racers, but it was young Harry Prentice (Husqvarna 50 )in his <More>

Loretta Lynn's Central Regional Qualifier Photos at The Farm MX CLICK HERE
All the photos from The Farm MX Regional Qualifier are from Saturday 6-16-07

This is it race fans, this was the last stop before the 2007 Loretta Lynn's AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships and those with the results from all the qualifiers will be attending the National Motocross Championships that will be held on July 30 through August 4, 2007 in Hurricane Mills, TN.
This is where the best of the best in amateur racing were at this weekend. With out a doubt there were some really fast lap times this weekend, these lap times can be viewed at
www.mxtransponder.com.
With the level of talent this weekend, if you were not on top of your game, you would not be heading to Loretta's in late July. With this in mind loretta's is the one race you need to make your mark and stand out for potential and future sponsors, so if you fail to qualify you'll miss your chance to show what your made of and draw that big ride we all dream of landing.
Some riders just stand out from the crowd and rise to the occasion, putting in one solid ride after another, one such racer this weekend really stepped up his game and showed everyone that he means business. Ronnie Morgan backed by Storm Lake Honda, Smith Optics, Hotcams, Hotrods, Pivot Works, K&N Filters, Fly Racing, One Helmets, P.B. Worx Suspension, Hickman Racing, Atomic 22, Decal Works, FMF, made the move to the A class this year and has been working week in and week out putting out the effort, and on Saturday June 16th Ronnie had one solid moto after another finishing 6th in the MX A Pro-Sport Class moto 1. Then in the Four Stroke Class, Morgan from Des-Moines rocketed from a 3rd place start to a hard fought 1st place, followed by Bryan Martinelli from Bloomsdale, Mo and James Larson out of Andover, Mn.
But Ronnie Morgan really showed what he was made of by winning the MX Lites A Div 1 race. It was a heated battle from start to finish, with the woop section the last thing standing between Morgan and the MX Lites A class win, Ronnie already leading the race was closely followed by second place runner Steven Clark of Cairo, Ga. Ronnie attacked the woop's as he had all day and extended his lead taking the Checkered flag.
So who are the top contenders from the central region, we have alot of fast racers coming from this region this year so the rest of the USA better watch out because Mike Weese, Ronnie Morgan, Kyle Corman, Vince Friese, Erik Boyle, Alex Martin, Patric Boyle, Devin Reed, Brandon Miller, Colin Hickman, Denny Stephenson, Jeramine Duncan, Cody Agler, Steven Clark, Spencer Dally are a threat to be reckoned with. With these top riders the list goes on, so if you have not herd of these guys chances are you will be hearing allot more about some of them come the end of July.

With a sweeping right, the pack aproches the first jump still leaning from the turn, and with the speed these riders were running, a crash was virtually inevitable.

Soaring Edge Raceway Park is host to the Ponca NMA 4-Corners Qualifier


CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS FROM JUNE 3rd

Soaring Edge Raceway was hit with rain Saturday night, and upon arrival you would assume that it would be a mud hole, but The Soaring Edge Crew and mother nature really helped track conditions. As the sun started to shine and a small breeze swept in, by the end of practice the track was more than suitable for having a race. Soaring edge is really stepping up their program. During the riders meeting, every one was told that if you race and you finish in the top 7 spots you will get a trophy! NO MATTER HOW MANY ARE IN YOUR CLASS! Normally tracks trophy 33%, not Soaring Edge they wanted to make sure that every one had a chance to take home a trophy. Also they have Drawings during intermission to give away prizes from a Race 1 time for Free pass, 1 Practice for Free pass, T-Shirts and more. On top of all that they have a podium, that is a hit with everyone.
Soaring Edge is really trying to give something that no other track is, or has done. They truly are working hard to supply you, the racer with a quality racing experience. Their track is getting much better, as they have mixed some sand and wood chips in to help conditions, and this weekend it paid off. With all the rain they had, it looked almost like it would be a rain out, but the track held up and really stayed tacky the entire day.

In the second Lites practice today at Hangtown, Jason Lawrence and Ryan Villopoto had a scuffle following a few laps of block-passes and hand gestures. The AMA handed down a fine of $7,500 to Lawrence, along with a probation period, and 40th gate pick for tomorrow's race. Ryan Villopoto was fined $2,500 for the actions of his team. Look for an AMA press release shortly." From RacerXIll

So the next Question remains, who won the race? Well Carmichael ran second in the first moto, then won the second so he finished the day with a First place overall.
I would think this should put an exclamation point on his career, shoot he misses half the Supercross season, then goes to another sport and begins another career, then decides to race the first 5 rounds of the AMA national outdoor series. Then he goes to the first round and WIN'S!!!
Ok so I am sure there are people out there that would say come on, I want someone else to Win! Well from the results from this weekend at Sacramento for round 1, your just going to have to wait. Carmichael even though retired still has it in him to be fast enough to win. Me Personally I could not be happier, I absolutely love to watch him race.
So to all you young kids that want to be just like Carmichael, you should know that even though he has not been racing the past few months, he has been training every bit as hard as he ever has. To be like Carmichael you need to really apply your self, and still find a way to enjoy it. Take it from me, I have really only been taking Photos since November of last year.
I will admit that my photos are not the best in the industry, but I am getting better and better at it every weekend because I am really trying, for me this is tough, with a full time job and a passion for the sport, this is something new for me and I really need to work at it. So now that I have effectively gone from Carmichael's win to me taking photos, all in one breath and switched subjects so quick, I think I need to point out the fact, that this is the same thing for just about everything we do. You have got to put out the effort, and you need some one to look up to, alot of you will pick someone like Carmichael or Stewart or some one else in the pros, well they were once in the exact same place you are right now. So you might have finished last place this weekend, but that doesn't matter, if you really really did the best you could, then you probably did better than more than half the racers out there. So in my book you were not in last place, if you did your personal best, and put out 110%, in my book that is as good as first when it comes to accomplishing something...... So Carmichael knows what he wants and obviously he put in his personal best, well for him, this weekend it was a win. I am excited he won and I can not wait to see what will happen in the next 4 events, will he will them all, then call it the end of his season? I guess we well have to wait until next weekend to see if round 2 will find Ricky Carmichael on top of the podium.

I am working on getting all the photos from Riverside Raceway Up, I do have some uploaded already, but not all of them.
Please check back Later this evening or tomorrow to view the rest of the photos. I also wanted to thank everyone for letting me know how much you appreciate my website. It really means allot to me. I love this sport and have raced or been involved in motorcycle racing for more than 33 years, and even though I am not racing I am enjoying the time I spend at the tracks with everyone, and I love taking photos and writing articles about these events.
I would like to also thank a couple kids for coming up to me this weekend with enthusiasm, asking me to Autograph some photos I took of them riding. Thank you guys. Hopefully that was as cool for you as it was for me.
Have you Ever Seen a bruise like this one. This rider Crashed at Winterset in practice on Saturday and he said "My ass is "Thor" and from the looks of that bruise it will be for some time. I have finally uploaded all the images from Winterset so go check them out.

Round 4 at Whitesands Raceway in Ashland Nebraska had great weather for the second time this year, and the dirt was awesome as usual. Out of Respect to Paul Bellinger www.thephotoperson.com I took the photos from track side. Even though Paul was not on hand to take photos for the races I still respected his position with Whitesands Raceway.
So the races go on and who came to compete, it's been sometime since he has made his way to competition and he did not disappoint. Adam Daniel's took top honors in all the classes he entered, however Jake Matter gave Adam a run for his money in the second moto, taking the wholeshot and actually put some distance on adam in a few sections, but late in the 3rd lap Matter was overtaken by Daniel's in the corner at the end of the rhythm section. The rest is history.
Well to everyone that was there It was a great time and I hope you like some of the photos I took. Granted this is only the second time I have used this camera so they could be better but all in all I did get some good shots of every rider. There are about 1000 photos to brouse through. I have only separated them by bike size so keep looking, I tried to make sure I got pictures of every racer. If I missed you some how I am sorry.
I have All Big Bikes - All Mini Bikes - All ATV's - Almost Crash Photos.

If you are looking through the photos you need to look in the All ATV photos, because the rider Raven Moon Girgan received her first trophy this evening and I was happy to get some pictures of this for her and her family, after all that is why I am there. This sport is so much more than just a race, it's something the kids need and a place where strangers can become apart of the family. I am honored to be apart of Ravens first trophy, congratulations Raven, you raced a great race. Click Here to view Raven's Profile

Thank you.

Press release from www.racerxill.com

MX Sports Revises Pro Sport Class Eligibility Rules for the 2007 Air Nautiques/AMA Amateur National Championships at Loretta Lynn’s

The 2007 AMA Amateur Supplemental Rules state that riders who earned professional points or a professional national number in motocross or supercross for the current or previous year are not eligible to compete in the national program. That rule was published after the riders competed in those pro races, however, so the riders were not aware that they were sacrificing their eligibility when they competed in the events. The revised supplemental rules reestablish amateur eligibility for riders that competed in a pro race in 2006 only, not those that competed in AMA professional supercross or motocross events in 2007.

“It came to our attention that several amateur prospects raced a few pro nationals late last summer, and they were losing their eligibility without prior knowledge,” said MX Sports Director, Tim Cotter. “At the time that these riders competed, the 2007 rule had not been posted yet. We will make this rule retroactive to the previous year only. <MORE>

Randy, thanks for everything you're doing to help Ricky out. To think how much time, effort, and money you pour into this site and then you want to sponsor a donation drive to boot. To be sure, your heart is bigger than your brain! I am especially thankful for the respect given to waiting to post the crash pics. At first, I wasn't too keen on that, but Ricky said he didn't mind. And thanks to Travis Hodges for calling while we were in the ER. It's great that a fellow competitor had the class to call even though he felt bad about the whole deal. "Ricky feels very strongly that he hit Hodgy, not the other way around as some have reported. " People will run their mouths but Ricky and I know that Travis is the cleanest, most professional racer on the planet."
 
The absolute latest on Ricky's condition: His left humerus (upper arm) was broken just below the ball/shoulder socket, through the growth plate and was within 10mm of being a compound break (through the skin). The surgery went well. After the bone was realigned, three screws were needed to ensure stability. These screws will be permanent. His right shoulder was dislocated, but popped itself back in. The ligament and tendon damage should heal while the other shoulder is on the mend. The scrapes, bruises, and knobby marks just about paint his entire upper body and neck, and both forearms have basically no skin on them. The left side of his upper body was twice the size of his right, due to the swelling, although it's going down now.
 
The doc says 3 months minimum and although Ricky is a tough kid (the only time he cried was when he told me he had the holeshot) I feel the doctor may be right this time. I hope that this is a once-in-a-lifetime get-off. I can't take much more of this! I guess it's good PR for our sponsors!
 
Thanks to everyone for their calls, texts, and e mails.

From: Ed Kosiski of I80 Speedway Posted 5-15-07

Hello Racers!  First, I would like to thank everyone for their support at Little Sunset Speedway.  I am very pleased with the changes that have been made and the results of those changes at Little Sunset Speedway and I hope you have seen them also.  This past week, we had a weekly race kart count of 112 karts and a show that was less than 3 hours long. 

The track has been in great condition and we will work very hard to make sure that does not change.  I have attached information on some upcoming races and special events we will be having at Little Sunset Speedway, Soaring Edge and I-80 Speedway.   Please help distribute these flyers and hang them up at your place of business or anywhere they will be noticed.  We would really appreciate your help with getting the word out. 

During the Monster Truck Show on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, I would like some of our go-karters to put on a race on the front stretch of I-80 Speedway.  If you are interested in this event, please call me at 490-3535.  We will have free camping at our race track Memorial Day weekend.  With Mahoney State Park and water park, SAC Museum, the safari zoo within a couple miles of the track, we hope you choose this to be your weekend destination.  I know that kids are busy with games etc, but with the location of the track being so close to Omaha and Lincoln you can still make it to your events.  With gas prices being so high this could be a close (money saving) but very fun Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks and See you at the Races!

"Ricky Draper Injury Update" (5-14-07)
 
By: Matt Draper

As some of you already know Ricky was injured yesterday at the Farm MX in Indianola, Iowa warming up for the Loretta Lynn Regional next month. We are leaving for the hospital pretty soon for surgery and an overnight stay to fix the broken shoulder. Ricky had the start in the first 450 A moto, alongside Teddy Maier and Travis Hodges (35 A riders total). Hodgy slingshot from the outside and Ricky clipped his rear wheel 4th gear tapped and the rest you can figure out. He looks like he got hit by a bus, lots of knobby marks, etc. but he's in a good mood despite walking around like a grandpa.
 
We'll keep you all updated when I can, I'll probably spend the night there too.

I did happen to get photos of this crash and from the photos Ricky did infact clipp Hodges rear tire as mentioned. In my photos, Ricky was tossed from the bike and was hit by another rider almost immediately .The first rider to hit Ricky, first drove his front tire into his shoulder, then in the next photo, the rear tireof teh same ran accrost Ricky’sNeck as his helmet then grazed his rear sprocket.Then un the next photo , the second rider to his Ricky is launched off of Ricky as if he were a jump, then in the next photo he is again ran over by a third rider. Out of respect to Draper I will not be publishing these photos at this time.

THE FARM MX PHOTOS COMING SOON (5-13-07)
 
 

With more that 480 Riders in attendance, all classes had a near full gate. And with a full gate comes the first turn, and with the first turn it usually means the chance of someone getting hurt. When you take 35 to 40 of the areas top racers and you given them the start Only one of them gets the whole shot, the rest have to fight for the chance to lead the race. In the first moto of the lites A class, Ricky Draper Rider # 821 on a Honda, suffered a first turn crash that would send him home for the day and to the hospital for a checkup. Ricky had broken the top of his Humerus in his left shoulder, and he separated his right shoulder but that one is ok. He will be going in for surgery early this week, Get well Ricky.
Also Suffering an Injury sunday was Teddy Maier, apparently when going through the woops his shoulder came out of socket, this effectively ended Teddy's day as well. For all the riders that were injured this weekend at the Farm we say heal well and come back strong.

I will have photos up later this evening. I have about 2000 photos to process so Please be patient. More than likely I wont have them up until really late this evening but please check back Tuesday for your photos from the weekend.

It's time to practice and who better to go for a quick ride with than Chris Hunter, Tuf Racing's Team Manager for the this years National Champion race team. With Chase McGrath, & Jared Robey really looking to pick up their game this year, and these two are really close in lap times at the races this year, it's great to see these two practice together. Though the track was not in the greatest shape for a 30 minute moto the weather was perfect. Chris was dialing in his new suspension setup from Factory Connection, Chase was there to get some seat time for this weekend at the Farm MX in Indianola Iowa.Well I was there to get some photos to try out my new Photo Store that I finally got finished. I have been really working hard on getting this store up and running. I still have some tweaks to do but the store is working. So check it out www.promotophoto.com

So if you didn't know this weekend is the season opener for the Farm, and if you want action, and you would like to see all the top talent then the Farm MX is the place to race this weekend. If you are from out of the area and are planning on attending the North Central Amateur Regional qualifier for Loretta's this year, well this is the track you will be racing, so all of you that have already qualified for the regional, what are you waiting for come to the track this weekend and get some practice for the June 16th and 17th qualifier, after all it's a great track and always brings the highest level in talent.
A couple years ago when Mike Alessi was getting ready to turn pro in Millville, where did he race? The answer to that question is THE FARM MX. And who else well might you ask? Hmmmm well the list goes on. FOr starters former Supercross Champion Denny Stephenson, and current ranked supercross competitor Teddy Maier. It is not confirmed yet, but Teddy Maier should be attending this event. With supercross finally over, and a few weeks before the season opener for the AMA outdoor nationals, Maier will probably want to keep his game at it's highest, so he might be there. Well the list goes on but you can understand the level of competition this track brings.
Let me also say to all of you that are planning on making the trip to the farm and have never been here before, ill start by saying they really take care of the track and make every effort to keep it well groomed. It has always been one of my favorite tracks in the area, and to top it off it's also Kawasaki Contingency round. This weekend is also the 2007 4-Corners Region NMA National Qualifier. Shoot why stop there it is also the Full Throttle series Rd# 1 and the Win Series RD# 4. For more info on directions to the Farm Mx Click Here

RacerX Full article: "5 Minutes With....." Harold Waddell

Harold Waddell is an Omaha, Ne Resident who last year claimed the AMA National Championship Hillclimb series. With nurmous titles under his belt as an amateur, Harold began his journey like most of us, with the hopes of making it to the top at the national level. Well here we are 2007, nine years in the making on the professional level for Harold, and he is finally the one everyone wants to beat, and meet for that matter.
Today on RacerX in their "5 Minutes With...." section of their website they have a great interview with him that we all should read. I read it because I am friends with Harold, but you should read it because it's a great article in probably the best offroad magazine publication there is, (it's my opinion that it is the best but we are all in titled to one, so that is why I put the "probably" in that last sentence).Shoot read it because it's a great article and we can all relate.
Recently in Logan Iowa, Harold Waddell had attended their season opener claiming victory as a warm up for his National quest for maintaining his title. I had also attended this event and was able to get some shots of him at what he does best, so you can view all the photos I took of Harold from the Logan Iowa Hill Climb just Click Here

On hand for round 3 of the Win MX Series at Lanomi MX Park we saw Teddy Maier, Travis Hodges, Denny Stephenson, and a hand full of really fast riders competing for the top honors. Travis Hodges had a bad start and stalled his bike and made a bobble that sent him to the back of the class. While working his way through the pack Hodges had reached the A class rookie Ricky Draper, currently running 3rd place. Travis being a highly experienced racer quickly found a new Ricky, as he was putting pressure on Draper, Hodges was attempting shove his way through, but the youngster did not waver and held his cool, fightting the fight of his short A class career. Ricky Draper held off Travis Hodges on the final lap to claim an earned 3rd place.

Whitesands Raceway - Round 2 - Ashland, Ne

Finally a good weekend to race, with most of the areas season openers canceled due to weather, Whitesands also had their season opener canceled a couple weeks ago. SO this was technically Round 1 of the series and this would be Ricky Draper's round 1 from coming off a broken wrist in practice at the Guthrie round of the BooKoo series Arenacross (Click Here for full story on BooKoo round). So Ricky has been looking get back in action and race again. After Practice Saturday at whitesands Draper really looked smooth and confident. I asked him how his wrist was holding up and he was happy with it for the most part, he said it still has a little pain but all in all he told me he is 100% good to go, and super excited to finally race again.
Ricky entered 3 Classes this weekend taking top honors in all 3 classes, I would say that is defiantly how you make a comeback so Congratulations to Ricky for that. After a great weekend of racing Draper headed home with some winning cash in his pocket and a huge smile, but unfortunately on the ride home ricky was Driving him self home in his Ford Pickup and up ahead Ricky saw something in the middle of the road at the last second, he swerved to miss what ever it was and rolled his truck several times. Ricky is lucky because he was wearing his seat belt, and from the Police reports in this instance if he would not have been wearing his seat belt he would most certainly been killed. Having an awareness of safety at all times while racing probably gave him the intuition to BUCKLE UP you never know when something like this can Happen and thank god Ricky had safety on his mind. Yeah he was excited about winning this weekend but in his excitement he didn't forget buckle his belt.
With the Loretta Qualifier this weekend in Illinois, a little sore but nothing really bad Ricky will still be racing this event. I will also be attending this event to take photos so if you are also racing this event make sure you email me or stop me at the track and say hi. So we will see you all at the races.

April 8th Easter Sunday Motocross Practice

Finally there was a clear warm day to ride and who would miss a chance to take some time and go for a ride. Chase McGrath, Harold Waddell, Luke Vopnford, Cody Gilmore and Justin Kolb were out to get some much needed ride time. Harold and Chase were having some really good practice laps and near the end of the day they were out for dirt. SO WHo ever killed their bike got it and I mean got it. At one point chase and Harold were both reaching for the others kill switch, Chase got the upper hand on that one and harold killed his bike and so did Justin Kolb, Chase took advantage and took turns roosting each of them. It was a fun filled day of riding and to top it off I came home with some really great photos to share with everyone.
