Long before the Modified Circuit knew him, I met him. It was a long, long time ago…almost 25 years ago. He was seventeen a legend in motor-cross and destined for greater things than he’d ever imagined

I met him in a sterile hospital with over-polished floors. The decor a bland grey and muted blue. I was sixteen, he was seventeen. It was seven weeks since our birthday. I don’t remember him before that moment.

I’ve written about him several times in my blog. Perhaps you remember “Reflections of a Friendship” or “Best Friends”.

To see him now, featured on the cover of Speedway Magazine’s December 2009 issue is impressive. It’s not anything I ever doubted he could do. It’s not something that defines him to me. It’s something that shares with the world the man I most admire–the man who is more whole, more complete than any other person I have been fortunate to meet.

Enjoy this tribute written by Mike Adaskaveg and published by Speedway Illustrated in their December 2009 issue.
