2013 Spring Creek Pro National...Lets Get Ready!!!

We are so close to Pro National week, I am going crazy thinking about it. I wanted to get things going with a little write up on what my plans are and my thoughts going into the week.

I think of this week as my Dream Summer vacation of a Lifetime. Every year I get to work the Pro National, I always come away with so many great memories. Not just of the race, but the whole week of living at the track, working and preparing for whats to come. We will leave home early Monday morning for Spring Creek Mx Park to get our camp spot set up in a very quiet spot behind the Martins house. I like it best back there because after all the long hard working days, it's good to have quiet relaxing camp to get back to and just relaxe. Aaron and I will spend the week working on sprucing things up. Like trimming and cutting trees, painting the starting gate, hanging banners, and I'm sure John Martin will have some construction projects that will need to be finished. Every year it's something different, but interesting.

We do have plans to travel home Tuesday afternoon to race the Anoka County Fair, but then will head back to Spring Creek first thing Wed morning.

One of my favorite things about working all week at the track, is watching Shane Schaefer, John Martin and the rest of the dozer operators work the track. They usually make some really cool track changes, and we are the first to see them. I will hopefully share some teaser pics of whats happeneing next week while the work continues. We will have to keep the track ready for amature riding, but yet quickly turn it into a full Pro track over night, not to mention for the media practice day on thursday.

I really hope to share some things through out the week, and hopefully MxMatt will help me post things. So, expect to see some teaser stuff on this blog next week, and be sure to holler and wave, I'll be working the collerbone/finish line area during the racing all week.
