turns out I had taken his picture a few weeks ago at another open practice at Walden and posted it on their website. when I spoke with his father Sunday I asked how he did after the spill and realized he was the kid here, and his father told me the picture on Waldens website went viral on Facebook among the local mini crowd and he was an instant star.
59 then told me about his first moto win and said he would have done better in the 2nd race "if I didn't fall down".
His dad and I looked at each other and laughed. So did he.
Beats cutting grass and cleaning bathrooms!
