Great to hear of Shayne's progress. Thank you Stephanie for the updates! Keep moving forward Shane!
The following information is of Shayne Thomas who he and his son Chris raced with us many years in the Old D5 times. Both Shayne and Chris rode with the #599. Shayne was in the Vet C class and did very well. Most personnal person is Shayne and would do anything for anyone. His son had a bad injury that pretty much took him off the bike and Chris started to do videos of the races. With other committments we haven't seen Shayne and Chris racing but many great memories of them from Sunday to Sunday. He is in great need at this time and anything that you can do for him would be greatly appreciated. I know when we lost our Aaron the MX community was and still is our biggest support. What a wonderful family we have in our MX friends.
Shayne is at Allegheny General, 7th Floor and room 731.//
The following is an e-mail from Shaynes friend, Jessica Auld.
My name is Jessica Auld, and I have become very close to Shayne Thomas in the past year. I’m not sure if you remember him or not, but he talked about you quite a bit. Unfortunately, on July 23, 2011 Shayne suffered a spinal cord injury from jumping into a pool. He has been in Allegheny General Hospital since the accident, and will be moving to a spinal cord rehabilitation soon. He has been on a ventilator and feeding tube since the accident as well, but they are trying to wean him off the ventilator as we speak. He has had no movement from the armpit down as well, but the doctors will not pronounce what the future holds yet so we are keeping faith.
He told me to contact you so I could maybe get a contact list of riders or if you could pass this message on about what happened. We ask for everyone’s prayers, and also passing on the message about his benefit bike run, and also if there is anything you think we could do for this cause. I will attach a flyer for his benefit bike run, and also a picture of him. Thank you, Jessica Auld

Jimmy had 3 great moto's in the +25 Class. Competitors at the highest levels and the racing was awesome! Saturdays moto was fantastic. Jimmy got a great start off the gates and held it down right thru the "Holeshot Banner". They were the first moto on Saturday, track was fresh with moisture and grooming. It was alittle cloudy and the lighting wasn't that good for me but still caught some good shots of hole shot and race between the tough competition. Jimmy held a good 3rd with a 2nd over all in the +25 Class. Great racing Jimmy and congratulation for all of your and Homer's efforts.

It's been nearly a week since the last moto went off at Loretta's. Back to work in full swing and still trying to get caught up in all things. Think about last week a lot and the great people that are involved in it's daily program. I HOPE to get more put together this weekend, thank you all for your patience. My body has not yet gotten back to my "Normal" way. Have a great day everyone and stay safe... Ty Newcome is on his way to "Dilla"... Best of racing there Ty. "GO DOUBLE D". We will all be watching!
