All I can say is FINALLY!! Hopefully I can keep the ball rolling into next year, I’ve been sure close to winning the last few races but not close enough and today I was finally able to seal the deal even after totally sinking my bike in a mud hole on lap one while leading, big shout-out to the 2 guys who helped pull me out I’d still be there if it wasn’t for y’all! Just kept trucking today, was patient when I needed to be and it really paid off. Thank you so much to @dylan_77_bean & @nickrupertii for chasing me all day, the whole ktm crew for being out there and everyone who helps me go racing @dylan_77_bean @ktmusa @mepmx @flyracingusa #grizzlypeakmarketing @trspeedway @xtremetruckandtrailer @xcgear17 @elineaccessories @bell_powersports @xbrandgoggles @cormotographics @skullcandyoz @fmf73 @motorex_powersports @motionpro @alpinestars @rk_excel @hammernutrition @polarglobal @dt1filtersusa @mikametals @puremotiongreenville @fuelclothing @tmdesignworks @ridedunlop @imsproducts @rekluse_motorsports @asterisk_usa @uswesports @enduroengineering @guts_racing_inc #akreadymix #ulrichperformance 📸 @dchapman457
