    I'm a Motocross racer for life! It's been my passion ever since I was a little kid. I strive for excellence in all aspects in my life, whether it is racing, college, or my personal being. I also enjoy good food with great people, paddle boarding (and the beach in general), and physics. As an elite athlete, physical training is just another part of my life, however I do enjoy a good workout session and being physically fit. I also enjoy writing about my experiences as a racer, and being able to share what I have learned from my experiences with others, whether it's simply for reading pleasure or if it helps give someone a realistic look at what Motocross is for a grass-roots racer.

    Chances are if you are a part of just about any motorsport that involves a start from a dead stop, whether it be Motocross or drag racing, you understand the importance of a good launch in order to get an edge on your competition. In the case of Motocross, the start is the only time in a race where you can pass 41 people in a few seconds. On countless occasions, the start has, does, and will continue to determine the outcome of many races! While we all know about holeshot devices that hold the front of the bike down to prevent wheeling, what kind of effect does a rear holeshot device have on start performance? I've been able to use the TamerMX Rear Holeshot Device in a variety of conditions, and I can say without a doubt in my mind… I will continue to use it for as long as I race! I have been using TamerMX’s dual-button front holeshot device for about 3 years now, so I had little doubt in whether or not I was getting a well-built product that’s going to last a long time. Instead, my skepticism was geared towards exactly how well it achieved its purpose, being to keep the rear end of the bike planted to the ground in order to increase traction. When the holeshot device is locked in, it can lower the rear of the bike by 115-135mm. The device loads the shock down, pressing your tire into the ground. This creates a lower center of gravity, preventing your tire from spinning when the gate drops and you hammer it all the way to the first turn. The TamerMX Rear Holeshot Device also helps the rear track straight when you have line coming out of your gate that is bumpy enough to make the rear end hop. Before and after: both front and rear holeshot devices are engaged. Even in a variety of conditions, the TamerMX Rear Holeshot Device creates extra traction for an insane burst out of the gate! Quite simply, if there is moisture or a rut, you can count on the rear holeshot device to have you leaping out in front. The only time I have struggled with the rear device is when I was starting on the dry flat of the very inside at MillCreek for the regional. On my mod bike, the rear tire spun, causing me to get mediocre starts; yet when I tried to give a little less throttle, the bike bogged. I think that this was simply because there was no rut and it was incredibly dry. Moral of the story: test, test, test, and then test some more so you know when to use it. When you have perfect conditions though, make sure you grip tightly because you’re going to be riding a guided missile! Scott Meshey #141: Slo-Mo start against a 450 while using both rear and front holeshot devices. Of course, just like the front device, you can customize how far down the rear device locks by sliding it up and down your linkage. This is good for riders who are picky about how they run their set-up. Another positive to the rear holeshot device is that it is quite simple to install and is very durable due to it being full aluminum, other than the plunger where the post locks into… that’s good ol’ steel! There are some things I do want to note about this product that aren’t necessarily negatives, just things buyer should know: MAKE SURE YOU TEST! The amount of traction and power to the ground you gain when the rear holeshot device is engaged is impressive to say the least. If you have moisture in the ground and don’t have your throttle opened enough, there’s a good chance you will bog. Make sure you have that throttle open! Given that you need to give substantially more throttle, some adjustments in body positioning and the amount you grip the bike need to happen. Be conscientious about your gate choice and how you prep your gate. You don’t want to run over your gate and have your device come undone and get squirrely. Just like the option of hitting a bottom button on a two-button system, sometimes it’s not always the best idea to be overzealous and engage the rear device if the conditions aren’t right. Again, this falls into the testing note. Things work different for different riders on different bikes with different amounts of modifications to the motor. Bottom line… for a relatively small investment of $159.95, the TamerMX rear holeshot device will give you an edge of the first 15-25 feet with extra traction and more power to the ground. This is especially important if you are running with a motor disadvantage, whether it be stock vs. mod or 250 vs. 450. It mounts to stock and aftermarket linkage arms of all modern big bikes as well as KX 85s and 100s. Check out http://tamermotocross.com/ for more on their rear holeshot device (and more).

  1. He is. His number is (813) 714-2038. I don't know any other guys that are closer to Brandenton. Just pay attention when you ride with that going on, your suspension is going to feel non-existent and uncomfortable. Need to make my way down to FTT, looks sick! Is it expensive to ride there?
  2. I personally use Dunlop 3s tires for most tracks around Central Florida... however on a 450, you'll wear those out pretty quick if you're on a hard pack track like Tampa MX or WildWood. For tracks like that... if you want your tires to last a little longer, go with an intermediate compound, like a Dunlop 52. You'll sacrifice a little bit of grip for better longevity. Softer tracks like FTT, Dade City, Orlando, Bithlo, or Bostwick, you would want to use a 3s...
  3. I usually use Ronnie @ Six12 for any servicing like that. Tell him Scott Meshey sent you if you go with him [emoji16]
  4. Hello ThumperTalk readers! It’s been a while, and a lot has happened! My absence hasn’t been a negative time, but rather a time of building and preparation for the success I had just a few days ago. As I said in my previous entry, things are always likely to change, and I’ll talk a little about that too. Let’s get to it! In the weeks leading up to the largest amateur national, Loretta Lynn’s, the preparation was nothing short of busy. Working three 12- hour days in the Florida heat, the other day spent either on the bike training with, Ricky Renner, in the gym or on a road bike. One thing I hadn’t thought about, I hadn’t been on an amateur national gate since November 2015, and I was competing in two of the most competitive classes at the ranch. However, a little bit of ignorance was bliss, and it allowed me to come in with a level of confidence to start the week and only get better. Loretta Lynn's Amateur National, College 18-24 Moto 2, Photo by MEPMX At the ranch, the usual ups and downs of competition is an understatement. However, I found myself able to walk away with my head held higher than ever, accomplishing many firsts and doing it was more awesome than I could’ve imagined! In the 250A class, if something could go wrong, it did. A nasty get-together with another racer over a jump – first moto, a fried clutch – second moto, and a flat tire in the fourth lap third moto, it would’ve been enough for some folks to give up and go home. On the opposite side of the spectrum, it seemed like everything went right in the College 18-24 class. It was in this class that I got my first ever podium moto finish, moto win, and overall podium at Loretta Lynn’s! 5-3-1 for 3rd overall! Loretta Lynn's Amateur National, 250A Moto 2, Photo by MEPMX This year was very different from the rest. With the guidance of Renner, and my long-time wrench, Amish Sam, we came into things with more strategy and well-thought out plans for success, rather than “just go for it” mentality. I am not an inside starter… but this week was different. The slight disadvantage of a 250 against 450s, I had to get a good start to set myself up for the rest of the moto, rather than trying to get a holeshot from the center of the starting line and putting myself in a spot to potentially get pinched off and shuffled to the back. We made a few bike changes throughout the week, different gearing, different piston, and new mapping (big thanks to Doug @ Kawasaki for helping me). More than anything, I was open-minded to achieve the success I wanted along with hard work and effort it ultimately created the scenario for success, and more confidence which allowed for greater accomplishments. Loretta Lynn's Amateur National, College 18-24 Moto 3, Photo by Ricky Renner I believe the most exciting thing that happened last week was the last moto of the week, College 18-24, when I had my first ever moto win at Loretta Lynn’s! Perhaps you have experienced the feeling when you are leading, thoughts of, “just stay up”, and there’s a good chance of caving under the pressure. I went from 6th to 2nd in about 3 turns, and from there I passed into the lead by the 3rd lap finishing 8 seconds ahead of second place. When I passed into the lead and started to pull away, there was no sense of “don’t go down”. Instead, I was feeling confident and pride in myself. It felt like it was another day doing 20-minute motos… just nailing the lines, clicking off laps, in control, and CALM. It was at that moment I realized, that this is what I have trained for, all the preparation, to be in first place, at the most prestigious race of the year. To feel calm and comfortable in the most coveted spot. How awesome to be at the highest level in amateur racing of the year, leading the race, and feeling like it’s another day at the office, the sense to just keep it flowing! Going forward with this new confidence, I believe is a great stepping stone for further accomplishments at other national events and even into professional racing. I just had to have the breakthrough and get the momentum going! Loretta Lynn's Amateur National, College 18-24 Moto 3 Win & Awards Ceremony, Photos by Ricky Renner As mentioned in my last blog, plans change. I will be staying amateur another year. This decision has been unanimous with those who support me. I have missed a full year’s worth of gate drops, training and practice, and want to give myself adequate time to fully re-integrate back into the top level of amateur racing/competition. When I go pro, I want adequate support behind me, and to have all the tools necessary to create waves, and go in with the speed to be competitive off the gate drop. I will continue to document my journey in the A class, Arenacross run, and further. Be sure to check in and click the follow button for future blogs! We are always keeping it interesting in the Meshey camp. I want to thank everyone who helps me along this journey. Wouldn’t be able to do what I do without all of you!

    I remember a time when I used to not even think twice about changing my foot pegs. Until about 4 years ago, I rode what came on the bike… Man, was I missing out! Now, I feel that over-sized pegs are a necessity. Being that I was wearing a size 10 boot in Super Mini class, the need for bigger, sharper pegs was real! Since then, I've ridden on the offerings from a few of the top brands, but overall, Fly's Gator Foot Peg takes the cake. Believe me, I was skeptical for a few reasons… First, the idea of an arch on foot pegs made me think it would be an awkward feel; second, I had no idea that Fly made foot pegs, and I was curious about running a gear company’s foot pegs compared to a company that focuses solely on parts like this. Despite my initial thoughts, I am honestly quite blown away with the comfort, durability, and enhancement of control that they bring to the bike. I say this with zero bias, even though I've been a Fly gear sponsored rider for a few years. #141 Scott Meshey - Video by NDA Action Sports I wear a size 11 boot, so having a larger platform to grip and the arch, it feels more natural than the stock Kawasaki KX-F foot pegs. The Gator foot pegs also provide better control of the shifter and rear brake lever. As you reach and move your foot up and down, the peg’s arch keeps constant contact with the boot, rather than a “hanging off the edge” feeling of a flat foot peg. Tampa MX Top Gun Dealer Cup Round 3, Photo by WFO Action Shots What’s the reason for the awesome performance? Well, there’s a few, actually! One would be the pyramid teeth as well as the material the foot pegs are made with… 17-4 stainless steel. This offers incredible strength, along with resistance to corrosion. What sets the Gator Foot Peg apart is its 2.32X3.54" (58X90mm) over-sized arch design. This allows for more surface area as well as contouring to the rider’s foot, allowing for a better grip. Of course, nobody is perfect, so you won’t always have your footing just right on the foot peg going around a corner. Gator foot pegs give you a larger area to put your foot on so you can keep pressure on the pegs, keeping your foot from slipping off and getting into sketchy no-footer situations! Also, the durability of the teeth is something to note. Even after having the foot pegs on for practice and racing for over a month, they still have an impressive bite. I got to test the Fly Gator Foot Pegs in all kinds of conditions and got a full spectrum of use. As far as slick conditions go, the foot pegs really help to make a difference when there isn’t a rut to rely on by allowing extra weight on the outside foot peg to prevent sliding. They also excelled with helping keep the bike stable on the long, rough, and sometimes muddy downhills of MillCreek. Believe me when I say that I’ve had a few sketchy moments where I thought for sure the bike was going to swap out from under me, but I was able to keep my feet planted on the foot pegs and straighten things out thanks to the larger, grippier platform that seems to offer a customizable weight distribution. Also, the open cleat design prevents mud from packing in your foot pegs, definitely great for places that get thick mud *coughs* Loretta’s. To sum it up, for $109.95, you’re getting an awesome product that is a must-have for any serious rider. With these foot pegs, your ride will not only give you a competitive edge, but they can also help keep you safer. If you’ve never had over-sized pegs, these will make you want a pair for every bike you own! They’re available for all major Motocross bike brands of almost any size.

    The unique arched design of the Gator footpegs allows for a wider footbed without compromising control. Your foot can roll on the arched cleats while shifting and/or braking so you stay in contact with more of the peg instead of just the front or back edge common with most wide flat foot pegs. Features: 17-4 Stainless steel 58mm wide x 90mm length construction Open cleat design prevents mud build-up Easy to install with no modifications Made in USA

    What’s up ThumperTalk readers! I’m back with an update from this past weekend at the Southeast Loretta Lynn’s Regional Championship at MillCreek MX as well as some thoughts going into Loretta’s prep. When I say that it was a long weekend, I mean that for more than just one reason! Between the drama of Open Pro Sport, 10 long and hard-fought motos, and some personal strifes, I was ready to leave the track with my tickets in hand. Of course, at the end of the day, I got what I went there to get… tickets to the ranch. With that being said, I will be going to Loretta’s in the 250A and College (18-24) classes. Before I start, I just want to say how awesome it was to return to a high-profile race and be welcomed back by good people as well as fellow competitors. While Motocross is a highly competitive atmosphere, we all like to see each other in good health. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX While there was some foul play among the races in the Open Pro Sport class, in the form of riders jumping the gate, leaving us to run 4 full motos instead of 3; I certainly did not make things easy on myself in most my race scenarios. I was trying to reacquaint myself with the old scenario of a full gate with some of the top racers in the class. It is very different racing local A races compared to racing almost 40 guys who are gunning for the top 6 positions in order to guarantee their spot at one of the most prestigious motocross races in the world, and they will do almost anything to get there. It took a few motos to get myself together, all the while working my way through the pack and making some rookie (but costly) mistakes. As far as speed goes, the lap times don’t lie… the speed was there, despite racing a 250 against 450s on a track that eats horsepower and will allow you to go as fast as you want as long as you have the cajones to twist the throttle. That’s why it’s one of my most favorite tracks of all time! However, in this sport, if you aren’t winning, there’s always a story. I will note though, it’s been since November of 2015 that I’ve been on an MX gate drop like that. That reality hit me pretty hard sometime this past weekend. However, I am proud of myself for gaining tickets in the A class, only riding for 3 months after a year off, in one regional compared to others who run two and three regionals to gain their ticket. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX There were things I needed to learn about my riding, some things that I needed to have reinstalled in my mind about racing at the top level, and things that I need to focus on going forward. I believe “reinstalled” is an appropriate word because I knew going into the race what I needed to do, but there were things that I forgot, as far as the level of importance. Probably the biggest thing is the importance of the start. At the top level of amateur racing, the top racers are all very close together as far as speed, usually within a second or two. If you get caught in a group of guys on the start, the top racers are already a few seconds ahead by the time you are able to make your moves. The start is the only place you can pass 41 other guys in a few seconds. While many already know this, understanding it is another thing… the race can be won or lost in the start. While I didn’t exactly nail all my starts, something I’ve always seemed to do well with is first-lap intensity. It’s easier to pass when racers are out-of-sorts compared to when they are comfortable, have a rhythm, and are using the main lines. I will give credit where credit is due and say thanks to Alex and Mr. Dan Frye for that valuable information. Going into Loretta’s prep time, I know where I stand, how to improve, and how I plan to make myself better. My costly mistakes from the weekend help shed light on what needs to change and the direction I need to go. I am a firm believer in learning from every experience. I was rusty! But I got the job done and continue to do what many never achieve for the 10th year. Something that may change however, is my path. Like I said in the first blog, nothing is certain in the world of Motocross. Stay tuned for more!

  7. Hello ThumperTalk readers! I’m back with a small entry before my regional qualification race for Loretta Lynn’s. While most regionals are over, and many have qualified or just missed it by that much… there’s still a select few left. Whether you made it to the big show, are still waiting to make it, or didn’t make it, I would encourage you to read on. First off, I’ll be direct when I say if by chance you did not receive a ticket to the ranch because you missed it by a couple spots, send in your money as an alternate. Between the power ranking system and the uncertainty of regionals and pre-Loretta’s prep, you may earn a spot on the gate. I tried for about 4 years to make it to Loretta’s, missing it only a spot or two, not knowing that I would’ve gotten in if I sent my money in. Don’t miss out an awesome opportunity. Tampa MX Top Gun Dealer Cup Round 3, picture by NDA Action Sports Personally, I’ve only entered in one regional. As someone who has raced for 15 years, nationally for 10, doing something like that doesn’t stress me out. Sure, it’s ballsy, but I know I have the speed and the confidence to do what I need to do. At this stage of the game, I concern myself with something more than just qualifying. I’m focused on winning. Every race, no matter how big or small. However, it’s important to temper this mindset with the idea that winning a regional doesn’t mean as much as winning Loretta’s, and it’s better to earn a ticket and settle for less than to try too much and put my spot in jeopardy for a better position at a regional. Learning to pick and choose your battles is pretty important in this line of work, look at most points championships. Tampa MX Top Gun Dealer Cup Round 2, photo by NDA Action Sports While I’ve only been back on the bike for just over 3 months, I feel faster and more confident than ever. I credit this to the confidence in my health being 100%, on and off the bike training with awesome people, the maturity gained from my year off, knowing that I have awesome equipment that is mechanically sound, and working with people who listen to my feedback to make the bike as fine-tuned as possible. Specifically for regionals, getting plenty of gate drops in at races in the local area and having proper time to prep for what comes next is my key. Doing the day-before readiness program won’t garner much success. Tampa MX Top Gun Dealer Cup Round 3, photo by David Lando: WFO Action Shots Regional mindset to me is no more than just another race but with a little heftier competition (I don’t underestimate other’s abilities). For me, avoiding unnecessary stress at these races is much easier than before. Mainly, sticking to your routine, with a slight increase in attention to detail helps one’s mind stay on what needs to be done and away from worry. Use your lucky race goggles, do your usual gate prepping technique, put on your awesome music playlist… whatever works best for you, just replicate it. Recognizing what helps bring success can help bring further success because it gives the mind a sense of familiarity and comfort, and when we are comfortable, we race better. Personally, I like to put on a certain number of tearoffs on my goggles, prep my gate a certain way; start my bike, activate my holeshot devices, put my goggles on, and put my bike in gear in a certain order at a certain time, along with a small pre-race thought process. Another great thing to remember when it comes to regionals, is to always make the best of your worst race. Consistent, good finishes is usually rewarding, but that’s not the easiest thing. Most importantly though, keep it fun! Tampa MX Top Gun Dealer Cup Round 3, photo by David Lando: WFO Action Shots I’ll have a post-regional/pre-Loretta’s prep entry up sooner rather than later!

  8. Be sure to tune into NDA Action Sport's live Facebook show tomorrow at 8pm! I'll be a guest on the show, talking about my journey as well as my recent races in the Florida area.IMG_0584.thumb.PNG.3ff884e5eff2171ffc94ea41e8bb1570.PNGIMG_0583.thumb.JPG.4124fb06a554602e5982d36205ce22f9.JPG

  9. TP199 was a real MVP for staying a people's hero and interacting with the fans as much as he did. It seems like there are very few who can see racing as more than just a "show" anymore. It's nice to see that some pros, guys who are idols to the up-and-comings, staying humble enough to not be above interacting with all fans, remembering they were once the kids lining up just to even be in the presence of their heroes. I know when I have people, no matter their age, coming up to me to talk, I take my time to have a good conversation. When kids come talk to me, I take the time and give them my full attention, because I remember what it was like to be that age and to look up to someone. When I first started riding, I looked up a local A guy named Casey Clark. I actually decided to use his number, 141, for myself... and I still continue to run it today. The reason the top guys get paid is because of the locals. Kudos to Deven. I know the feeling of being just outside of the unpopable bubble, trying to break in.
  10. Hello ThumperTalk readers! Welcome to the second entry of my blog series, following my journey exiting the amateur ranks into pro status. For more information about the blog series, check out the first entry, The Beginning of the Journey. For now, I’ll be taking a dip into my approach to the Loretta Lynn’s qualification process and preparing myself for regionals and forward. In the past, I’ve had a bit of a “just wing it” approach to what I did as far as racing went. While it has garnered me some success, it does not yield what I am truly capable of. Before I was released by my doctor to come back to racing, my family and I made the decision that we would change things up a bit. Of course, changes in plans isn’t uncharacteristic in a sport where there isn’t a whole lot that is certain. Like any racer, sometimes we have to switch up our lines in order to achieve the same goal. Wildwood MX, Picture by Bobby Bammann My approach is this… be as prepared as possible and do not rush the processes that take time. It wouldn’t be very wise to rush into the first regional event with semi-adequate preparation, not only in the sense of myself, but also my bike. Instead, I am giving myself plenty of time to continue riding, becoming faster on the bike and becoming stronger physically and mentally through gate drops and training with great people who know the process and know what it takes to reach where I want to go. Every time I am on the bike, I strive to learn something new about myself, the bike, push myself to try new things, and if I am unsure about something, be open to the advice given. With that being said, big thanks to those in my company that are making my journey to make myself great more possible than ever; Ricky Renner, RJ Hampshire, and DJ MacFarlane. I personally believe that the best form of training is to race. If you fall in a moto during training, you can rush to get up and get back going again to simulate a race. However, the environment of actually being in a race where everything you do has a real consequence can create a very different mindset. Gate drops are key in order to have your important race days on lock *insert key-and-lock emoji here*. Obviously, having A class payback is always a nice incentive to go racing… getting some gate drops in and make a couple bucks in the process. On the other hand, experience, and of course fun, is what it’s all about. If you can’t keep it fun, then it’s not worth pursuing. Dade City MX, Picture by Erwin Ziegler I’ve never lived at a training facility, so my efforts have required a different level of mental toughness where no one is forcing my hand at being “mentally tough”. My efforts are self-imposed and they require the want and drive in myself to achieve success. Most of my competitors at the top level of amateur racing have spent months and years at training facilities with the constant intensity of daily and hourly practice and training sessions, being pushed beyond what I have ever experienced, other than my few weeks here-and-there training with professionals. After a year off, my hunger and desire to get back and surpass my previous standing in the racing community pushes me to aggressively attack my riding and training time with a new level of determination and maturity to quickly reconcile mistakes, figure out why I goofed it, make necessary adjustments, and find the best course of action for me to be the best I can be. Lazy River MX Loretta Lynn's Area Qualifier, still shot from a video taken by Ricky Renner By this time next month, regionals will be finishing up and it’ll be time to prepare for the big show.

    Glad to see that they went to an electric start, such a lifesaver! If only they would do some much needed updates on the 250...
  12. I would keep the 80. He will only get bigger and he will become more comfortable with a bike he knows and learn to use the power more and more.
