OCT 16–DESTRY’S HARE AND HOUND REPORT
Round 6: AMA H&H Lucerne, Ca.
FINALLY!!! It seems like it’s been a long time since I?ve actually raced. As you can imagine, I?ve been counting down the days. I actually did a local race last week, as warm up, to see how I felt. Everything went really well and I was able to win. But now it?s time to go racing with the big boys again! I left on Wednesday to go over to Kawasaki and help John Braasch finish my new race bike. We finished early Friday morning, so I headed up to the desert to break it in. Later that night my family showed up with the motor home so we could stay out at the race.
It looks like Brian might have broke or fractured his shoulder in his crash. He wasn?t able to finish the race and will most likely miss the last H&H in two weeks.
The last Hare and Hound will be October 27th, and I?ll be doing a group riding school the Friday before the race.
Russ Pearson was riding his new YZF450, instead of his normal YZ250.
The race was a lot faster then most of the H&Hs in Lucerne and wasn?t to well liked with the national riders. Hopefully next year they?ll try to make this national event a lot tougher and better marked.
