Finally! Finally, after what had seemed to be an eternity, a race to attend. The Unadilla MX rewind to be eaxact, or as they renamed it the vintage mx regional. The latter being named due in part to a revised format because of promoter (ACR) cancellation and the fact that a majority of vintage brethren could not attend due to hot state status. Toots and I arrived on Friday afternoon as the hare-scramble had concluded and practice was underway for the grass track event. Next year I will partake in this event as the track layout had changed an was definitely much more appealing. Covid rules for parking were strict but by not having instruction as to where I could park, I got a great spot for my mate Jason and myself by the mercy of the track official. Thanks again my friend.
 Jason arrived with special guest, Unadilla mayor, living legend, team crew chief and friend Jo Jo Keller. A great  guy with an amazing sense of humor and all things moto. Lots of New England regulars showed up. Legend Jim Meenan, Jimbo from#oldmenthatusedtorace, Jeff Martell, Chris Gleebus, Johnny Deane, Brook Roberts (10x novice champion) etc.
 Saturday was a single class entry in the open 90-99 class rain was predicted and was in full mud prep, but never came. I raced the 1990 Honda CR 125R and she performed flawlessly. I raced to 4-4 score for 4th OA. Jay was Top three in his class.
 Sunday started with the word at chapel service ant some hot coffees. The 93 Honda CR 125R was the machine this day. My classes were separated by only 1 class and the start of the schedule. I raced the 125 B 90s and 50 plus disc brake B classes. the kids smoked me in the 125 class first moto. I managed to win the 50plus class moto 1 over a tenacious Fred Edmunds from NY. Got smoked by the kids again in the 2nd 125 moto and had a good crash as I lost my nose coming down a freshly watered section of the track. I was banged up a bit on my left side, too a knock to my left wrist. the bike was undamaged so I pulled it together and went to the the line for 50 plus B moto 2. Again I battled with Edmonds, both of us sending it as best we could. I managed to narrowly squeak out the victory over Edmunds in a back and forth 5 lap frenzy. The Unadilla MX rewind is the grand daddy event of the year and to take home the gold was the crowning jewel in a strange year. One event down one to go

Covid?, what covid? Unfortunately I see the effects from this type of flu first hand, but I have to say that its affect on me has been extremely minimal. Thanks to our father the Lord Jesus and the fact that I am not a social seeker needing to be seen, my life is status quo. Our fellow man has been extremely ridiculous by shutting the local tracks down (some still) thinking that moto is a large gathering of idiots waiting to break the rules, the majority of us will gladly social distance from one another as long as we get race and ride. Having said that and with racing returning and OPs in full swing, life has been good.
 Me and Toots have been hitting the local scene and preparing for the two races still on the calendar That I have been looking forward to the most. The Unadilla MX Rewind and the North east Vet Championship at the wick. Dilla is going to be amazing, but the wick is still a mystery as the have not posted the class structure yet. The Inaugural race as well as last year they had a vintage class and a 125 race so I dont see why they would leave those out, but until its posted I wont know for sure. Either way I will attend and put my old girls through their paces. So Im off to the beach with Toots this weekend then its off to the races.

It amazes me how different a track can be when you have a different organization riding at that venue. Case in point the wick this past Saturday. http://www.mscmotocross.com/ was in town to have OP and race event over the weekend. I was supposed to meet up with my friend Angelo for the first time this year and catch up on lost time , but his work had other plans. oh well maybe soon. Well any way, the New Yacka's seem to ride mostly hard pack and that is how to best describe the lines that formed on the track. I know that may sound weird, but having logged countless laps at this venue I can tell the difference in how the track shaped up.
 The MSC majority were riding the struggle bus and let me tell you it was packed up tight. I felt like I was in the  Benny Hill show watching the antics of these riders, it was a sight to see from my on the track experience let me tell ya. It was a fun day overall and my trusty 90 was up to the challenge until discussing tire pressure with my pit neighbor and informing him that you can get a puncture here, that I suffered a rear puncture at the end of my fourth session. So I busted out the 93 for the final session. Saw a solid amount of old girls being put through their paces. Some in beautiful livery and some down right horror shows, but to each his own. Now a little weekend retreat with Toots before attending an op at https://cccmx.com/.
