Race Report – Russ Pearson – WORCS rd 5 – CA
This weekend we headed out by Adelanto, CA for the 5th round of the WORCS series. Nick and I along with the dogs and sugar gliders headed down Friday morning for practice while the girls(Tina-my girlfriend and Amber-Nick’s wife) stayed for work and headed down later that night. We got there and rode the moto track a bit. Everything was pretty good. There was a like 100 plus foot step up then down jump thingy that was pretty cool along with just typical moto turns with some ruts and up and down thingies. We did some changes on the bikes and then you could see the rain coming. I did a couple more laps and it started sprinkling and getting heavier, so, with practice about over anyways I headed to the boxvan. I chatted with Nick about the course and bike stuff and he said he slid out and banged up his thumb pretty good. Crapp, that sucks. Well, we threw the bikes and stuff in the boxvan and the rain started coming down pretty hard. On our way out of the track, the road went by the little guys and girls track, and those kids were ripping around like no other all soaked and all. Man, kids are great, just out there having fun. Well, we made it to town and got some ice for Nick’s thumb and grub and to the motel for night night.

This next weekend we are headed again to California, this time to an AMA National Hare and Hound in Lucerne Valley, CA where I am going to work my butt off to come home with a win.
A big thanks to Tina for her help at the races and Ralph and Charles for their help in the pits, thanks. Also, thanks to Yamaha for building a great motorcycle and all their continued support along with all my other sponsors. Thanks to my family and friends and fans for your support. Nick’s thumb is still all poofed up and is having some doctors check on it for quicker healing and my cousin David also tweaked his ankle this weekend practicing up in Panaca, NV. So, hope they heal fast and chat with you all next week.
Thanks for the support
