Alan Rodenburn owns Racing Unlimited, a Kawasaki dealership in Fort Dodge, Iowa. They move a lot of MX bikes, having a big OHV park just down the street. He has been building his bike for Robby Pearson to pilot. Robby ended up taking a different ride for Springfield, leaving Alan with an open seat. Weirbach Racing actually hooked up Alan and Shayna. So, he took out the hot rod Expert engine and threw together a 'stock' 650 for the Basic/Pro Twins class. I just hung out with him for the past few hours. And man, does he have stories about last weekend!!! Anywho, Alan honed his Kaw 650 craft over the past few years. His son road raced that engine, and they have a lot of wins and championship to show for all their hard work. Alan knows his shit!!

Anytime your faster than a harley, you must be punished, doesnt matter if its because of the bike or rider talent, or both.

The announcers were even fooled on this one.... They said she was on a Crossley bike. It is clear that Racing Unlimited really "brought the bike to her" all weekend.A great effort.

She was wearing Crossley/Howerton gear all weekend.

I am required to name only the sponsors the riders list on their entries. Crowley was first listed sponsor.

She has raced them many times on 450s and has not always beat them. She had a superior bike....period. Also 2nd and 3rd have no experience riding those bikes and not a big name team helping them. They will get a lot better. Sometimes HP does not win, superior traction does.
Sometimes going faster around corners and then getting a better drive coming off the corner wins races,not the bike being better or having more hp.

I saw Shayna come from 10th or 11th at the Sac Mile,she didnt shut off where others did,smoothly push guys off the groove as they were clearly slowing her down.

She is just fast! And aggressive not scared one bit to dice it out with the boys.

Mr. Boone, no one should point the finger at you. You do an amazing job. You and Scottie MAKE the show, especially for the ones stuck at home, like myself. This was a last minute deal. And, those are Shayna's sponsors. She NEEDS to write them down on the entry form. They are the ones that get her butt to the race track. The lack of information started before you, not with you.

Again, thank you for everything you do for the sport.

A holeshot is a wonderful thing, but rarely, if ever, will a bike run the last 5 laps the same way it ran the first five. Is it riding style or bike set up that general gets her into turn one on the first lap in the lower half of the top ten but a third to a quarter of the way through the race she starts her move forward and finds herself in a position to win in the last couple of laps. She makes the comment "I need to work on my starts"... I think that statement is made to appease her fans that think the whole world is won with a holeshot. My opinion is that rider and tuner understand what the motorcycle is gonna do/turn into and know how to replicate it on a consistent basis in a constantly changing environment. In other words "they got their mess together"!!!

I think her size hurts her on the starts, she's just so light, the other guys have a few more pounds to get over that rear wheel. once she's going though, look out!!

It did ery much look like a last minute deal. She said on podium she did not have the time to update her sponsor list.

Thanks for the positive comments. I have a fun job.
