Thumb back in the '90's

I was club racing back in the '90's at Nelson's Ledges in Ohio. The Hayden boys, Nicky and one of his brothers (don't remember which one) were running Honda RS125's and screamed past me on my Yamaha DS7 250 in practice. A bit later they were both on their BMX bicycles riding around the pits and they stopped to get a look at my old vintage racer. I snapped a photo of them and it's hanging in my shop to this day. Great family of racers and wish them all well this season.

Back a few years, I had my son and daughter at Mid-Ohio. My kids wanted Nicky's autograph but I was too impatient to wait in line. On our way out, walking back to the car, I saw Nick coming toward us on a scooter and told the kids. They flagged him down. He stopped, signed my son's hat and daughter's program and he spent several minutes talking dirt bike riding with them, giving them both high fives when he scooted away. A TRUE class act!

Stoner would have run them over while giving you the finger!

His last year in AMA i caught him in between races on a moped, he was late to see his brother on the podium (since its such a rare occasion i suppose i shouldn't have slowed him down from that ) but he still signed a poster for me...in my room to this day.

I thought Jake Zemke did the VTX commercial. Did Zemke do the Valkyrie spot, too?

You are right DogBoy it was Rick Miller Speedway Racer and stuntman that did the Valkrie ad. Sorry for the bad info earlier.

Back on topic: Hayden would have done those commercials just as well.

+1. Its been six freaking years! Hayden won the championship anyway.

I don't see Haga fans posting photos of Nicky taking out Nori in that WSBK race at Laguna. Shit happens.
