I run advanced/A as well and that's what it's like when I ride with my buddy Andy who is a CCS Am. champion and now CCS/Wera expert.

Though I can say I was faster than Scott Russell at a track day he was at. He was riding in novice to instruct a few people with more money than brains or skill.

Should have stuck him on a 250 to make it more of a challenge for him

Guy knows what he's doing, and he probably has calm soul the whole time throughout, that the passes are impressive. As if he has nothing clouded in his head to hind him from such performance.

I can see this happening to me in novice class on a 600. When putting myself to first track day in Pacific International Raceways next year spring. This video is such confidence inspiring as well. I just believe I can do it because of the commitment I have, and that I won't give up becoming a star for the first deaf AMA GP racer. If Ashley Fiolek can destroy women MX competiton back to back, then I shouldn't doubt myself to stand out like that. Not saying I'll be instant champion though.

that's pretty wild. i have never done a track day before, but considering i have a 250 it doesn't make sense. perhaps when i upgrade i may try sometime.

Yeah man, I'm thinking of getting a 250 or 300 just for track use. If i wait a year or two i might score a 300 thats been dropped or something.

Are you deaf by any chance?

If you're committed and talented while being deaf, you would have greater chances of succeeding than most people. Try apply some race resumes in to businesses that has money to burn. That is how I got my initial support.


Many deaf people think otherwise, hopeless. Because alot of them chose to stay inside deaf communities, and think differently of the real world. Assuming people of higher places in motorsports don't want disability involved, when I got people interested in my case.

I didn't think that way about myself. In fact I thought highly of myself for a deaf person. I stayed in small redneck town that has love for motorsports. Therefore, I am not giving up on my GP fantasy.

Because there are no deaf guys on the top yet. While there is already a deaf female on the top in women's dirt MX competition category.
