I had never raced cruiser as an amateur. I had ridden my friend Brandon Spikes once in practice and I was super fast on it, Pops even asked if I wanted on. I said no. It wasn’t until I turned pro and the long wait between laps at the grands forced me to build one up. I got third at the ABA grands 2 years in a row riding for Mongoose, but when I switched to standard, it all came together. Great start, solid first straight, and I took it home. Randy Stumphauser finished second and won the title. I ended up number 2, only nine points behind Stumpy. I think I went into the grands in 9th and didn’t even think about the title. One of my best wins because of the talent that was in that main. This bike hangs on the wall in my garage and I won’t take it apart. It’s a keeper!
