That would be Heath Parker, he's much better looking than the faster Parkers if that means anything to any of you. I would say nicer too but they are all nice so there. Looking forward to it . we will be there about 1;00 on Friday

Re: OK, so you missed Diamond Don's...... Reply to this Post

After much consideration.....
I have been forced to decide against going to Louisiana.
With Dr's appointments immediately before and after this weekend there's just too much unknown. I certainly haven't recovered my "Energizer Bunny" enthusiasm.

It makes me very unhappy that I can't enjoy the Parkers hospitality as well as the great racing that will take place. If you are going please pass on my regrets to the Parkers.

Enjoy and be safe!!!!!

Well the weather didn't cooperate but the trails and track were a blast Saturday. Great food Saturday night and some brave old guys ran some motos Sunday after a major rain. Thanks for supporting Ricky and dad at DeSoto mx.

So sorry for the crappy weather Heath.
Don's has had his share of it so, like any racer knows.....there's always next year.
I talked to Skip Kennedy as he was on his way home. He said the CC was cancelled for today and there was only one moto for each class; three laps a moto.
It broke my heart to miss this weekend not as much for the racing but for the great company that your family provides.
See you at Rio in the fall.
G.

We got hammered with bad weather, maybe a near miss from a tornado but nonetheless, major winds, hail and downpours.
The rain may have dampened the riding but not the fun and fine folks who make these events so much fun to attend.
Ricky Parker did all he could, to prepare the track after the rains. He was diligent and wanted to make sure the riders had a premium track to ride on.
The Saturday 100cc "outlaw" class was intermission event and was the typical thrill ride, spectator highlight of the day. I was on the gate next to Heath and my first time to meet him. Another fine member of the Parker family by the way.
One casualty in the race was "Bullet" Bob Hodge, riding the Shackleford sponsored RM100, who went down while chasing me. I feel responsible somewhat because I cut the track to get ahead of himbiggrin.....I couldn't run around in last place, I want somebody to race with crying damned pesky fast guys.......
Anyway, Bob was able to hobble-around on a gimp leg for the remainder of the weekend.beat up but had plenty of fun.

Meanwhile......

The Saturday night "pot luck" dinner social was a treat, plenty of fine homemade dishes to go around.
The Parkers are the nicest folks and treat everyone like family. Definitely be back next time!!
