This past month of May I raced four events on three different kinds of tracks. Three of which were Steve Nace All Star series races with lots of fast amateurs from around the country.
I started my month on May 3rd in Henry, Illinois on a skinny cushion half mile in front of a huge turnout of fans. For the heat races the track was pretty well maintained, but still somewhat rutted and bumpy and I went on to win both of my heat races. In the mains they stopped doing track prep because of time so the track was like a whoops section of a motocross track through the turns, and I ended up with a 2nd and an unfortunate stall on the line that put me a lap down and with an 11th place finish.
Even with an undesirable ending, Bonneville Performance/Castrol/Triumph still makes progress with Mikey Martin at the Springfield Mile.
Akron, Ohio-The last we saw Mikey Martin he was on his way to the hospital with a severely broken ankle and his 2014 season was uncertain. An on track altercation at Volusia left the balance of his season on hold. Facing surgery to repair his damaged left leg, Mikey was determined to get back on the twin and win.
