FROSTBITE – Round #5
February 19, 2017
Blake arrived to the Herrin Compound on Saturday with 3 different motorcycles to ride. It was a practice day but with rain off and on and an oil spill that went around a lot of the track there was a lot of down time. There’s not a whole lot of clean up you can do for oil when it’s raining.
But race day was beautiful; the sun was shining it felt like spring and it was race day!! Blake entered five races on three different motorcycles. His first race was the Honda Grom class that he raced on his…you guessed it, his Grom. He did great off the start and got the hole shot. In turn #3 on the second lap Josh King passed Blake. Josh, Blake, and Kayla Yaakov stayed together the rest of the race. Blake felt like he could have gotten passed Josh but with Kayla right behind him he was racing defensively and not taking the lines he needed to get the pass. They all were putting down lap times in the mid 42’s. It’s funny how these little Grom’s is some of the best racing to watch. Read more “2016-2017 Frostbite Series- Round #5”
