After almost 13 years, I have come to the realization Ryan needs a break from moto. Ive been an idiot and never let him do anything else. I was selfish and even tho hes always told me thats all he wanted to do was race, I should have urged him to do other things. Its caused alot of conflicts between us and we are both just a little burned out.
He is going to be starting summer workouts for football in a couple weeks, and then 2 a days after that. He has a long hard road ahead of him, but I think he will do good in it...after all he is a damn giant.
We will more than likely still be at the track here and there, and when the season is over im sure he will still want to race, but for now we both just need a break.
Any new folks that are on here just starting out, dont short change your kid, let them and encourage them to do different stuff. Kevin Plesa is a good example of that. Dakota has probably done more stuff in his short life then most people do their whole lives....
And if Stephenville makes the playoffs (they almost always do), yall will have to come see him play.
Thanks to all the people that have helped Ryan out with his racing efforts over the years, he couldnt have done it without your help!!!
