Monday Aug 13th we rode for charity. Team Hot Pursuit,
with its new members, Jerry Coffe, Joel Eckstine, and Larry Covey, all participated in our charity ride. The guys rasied money
for Adelaine Powell, who is a very sick girl in Florida. The event includede a slowest bike contest, a fastest lap contest,
a holeshot contest and the most laps.
Joel got the most laps, and edged out Spencer by 1 lap, and Larry was only a
couple behind them. Jerry spent time repairing a front flat tire, and I just did whatever had to be done to make things work.
For more information about Adelaine see the link provided on this site.
Hot Pursuit in 2008 looks like it is going to have a new
direction and partnership. Stay tuned for some very much anticpated and exciting news about our new focus and direction.
Jacks surgery on his dislocted hip as a result of
a crash in practice about a month ago went well. He is healing up and doing well. He is anticipated to be back on the bike
by August 10th.
On June 23rd Tom and Spencer raced at the Ohio Fire
and Police bennefit race at Spring Valley raceway. Tom, now cleared by the doc, raced Clydsdale and +40 classes and Spencer
raced Schoolboy. Tom raced very well, and took 2nd and 3rd. Spencer had the front tire wash out on him in the first moto and
banged his knee. He sat out the second moto as the kne stiffened up and began to swell a little. A day later the knee is OK.
In the early part of June Mike and Jack were
practicing at Lorain COunty Speedway when Jack had a nast get-off. He ended up having surgery on his hip, and is currently
in a wheel chair with both legs in casts. Pray for his recovery.
In May Tom and Spencer participated in the Indiana
Fire and POlice bennefit race. The race was held to raise money for the Hoosier Burn camp for severly burned children. Tom,
still recovering from surgery, sat out Saturday but snuck onto the track in the Clydsdale class to spin a few laps. Spencer
went 1 and 1 in the 125 C class for a 1st overall.
