Blake was glad to be back on his motorcycle at the Herrin Compound. This was his first race there since the final Frost Bite Race. He missed the first two rounds of the Scorcher Series because of scheduling conflicts. And, boy was he glad to be back. He enjoys getting pretty much all the seat time he wants.
Saturday was practice day. An older, uh hum…more experienced motorcycle racer, James Stroud (former pro) took time showing Blake lines to take on the Honda 100 motorcycle. He is racing that motorcycle more competitively with the big boys now and James was helping him out.
During one of the practice sessions Damian Jigalov and Blake got together and Blake crashed out on the Honda 100 motorcycle. Blake came back into the pits with his Shoei helmet scratched up, some broken levers and bent bars. But with the RS Taichi leathers from MotoLiberty and his other safety gear he was unscathed. However, he was complaining to his dad, Mike, that Damian cut him off. Mike told him instead of being upset or complaining about it go talk to Damian about it. Blake did and that night the two of them were hanging out and having a good time. Another life lesson that motorcycles has taught Blake. Who says there’s no value in racing motorcycles?
