    When your title said "Young rookie", I was thinking a teenager, but it just seems more shocking to read this about a 10 year old.

    When you see those youngsters walking around the pits, and proudly clumping along with the steel shoe on the left boot, you just know they see themselves as the next Smith/Mees.

    Wow. That's a tough one. Hard to imagine being in that family right now.
    You see in this world there are two kinds of people my friend.
    Those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

    This is so sad. There are a lot of you kids around here racing flattrack, watching a little guy on a PW50 having it pinned on the straight with one hand on the fork leg is great.

    Godspeed young man.

    I hope anyone who thinks kids shouldn't be riding or racing realize that about 12 kids die each year playing football and 3-4 each year playing baseball. It is rare that kids die in motorsports, but it is just as sad for each and every child that dies no matter the circumstances.
    Asphalt racing is like a chess match. Dirt track racing is like a cage fight!
