Three Amigos...Grateful.

As the supercross season ends and we prepare for the great outdoors, I stop and think of how grateful I am that this whole blog thing has taken off the way it has. I have been able to meet and work with some of the best racers on the planet. I am truly thankful to every racer who has been a part of what I am doing.

Three racers really stand out to me and have been a huge push in what I am doing. Beni Williams, Michael Akaydin and Alex Ray. These guys have ran my logos and helped get other racers on board. 

Beni Williams, read my blogs on him. He is a very genuine and good hearted guy. This dude will text me ideas in the middle of the night and is so grateful for the help he gets. You can find him now under the Strikt Yamaha rig. Beni's first conversation with me was about just missing the cut at Vegas last season. Last weekend he made the top 20 and raced the west in Las Vegas. Congrats dude.

Michael Akaydin. His name came up and we began texting back and forth about doing a piece. On his way to Daytona we talked on the phone around 2:30am as his wife got him to the race. I got to meet him for the first time in Detroit and we keep in touch regularly. One of the first guys to run my logos as a pro, he put my logo in to the main event in Las Vegas, his first ever main event. Couldn't have happened for a better guy.

Alex Ray. This dude is tough and just a down right bad ass! I'm sure by now you've seen his Vegas crash. He's a little banged up, but man this guys season was one to remember. I did his article "Main Event Ready" just one week before Detroit, where in the LCQ he'd turn his dreams to reality and qualify for his first main. He'd then go on to make 2 more mains from the semi qualifiers. Alex runs the Killer Customz logos like no one else. Seeing this guys success this season has been awesome.

As we head to the outdoors, I am looking forward to seeing this grow more and more. I'm having a blast and doing what I can to bring some attention to privateer. motocross. To everyone else running the Killer Customz logos, THANK YOU. It means so much to me to see the support.
