    My ISDE Fundraiser (Aug. 3)

    Destry’s ISDE Fundraiser August 3, 2008 Grindingstone MX (Arizona) I had my fundraiser this last Sunday and I have to say it went better then I ever thought it would! I wasn’t expecting a huge turnout, because there were several race events scheduled throughout Arizona. It was also really hot and humid so I figured a lot of people would stay home in the ACJ. Overall, I was really impressed with how many racers and spectators showed up to offer support. We had about 240 riders and almost as many spectators, so I definitely wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who showed up, everyone who helped me set up, and everyone who donated items for the raffle and auction! I couldn’t have done it without you! I really had a lot of great sponsors, family, clubs, Grindingstone staff, and friends step up and help me put this event on. It was more work then I thought it would be, but at the same time, I had a blast and I know a lot of other people did too. The gates opened at 6 a.m., so we had to be out there pretty early to set up the raffle booth, awnings, ice chests, etc. We had all four tracks open (Endurocross, MX, Escargot, and kids track). The MX track had a scheduled practice and we had a lot of great reviews. I know some sections of the track had a few issues, but I also know we weren’t expecting half the amount of riders we had. During lunch they worked on the track again, and it was awesome! Most people I talked to were really excited about the track and liked the roughness of it for training and practice. I know they’re working on putting more sand on the track, building better jumps, and making it a little wider too. The Escargot track was also a big hit. A lot of people were skeptical, but once they tried it they were hooked. It’s almost addictive, because you keep trying to beat not only your time but the fastest time. The Escargot Champ for the weekend was Kawasaki’s own Gary Sutherlin! Although I did beat him, but I couldn’t take home my own trophy! J The Endurocross track was designed as an Expert/ Pro track. It’s very technical and a lot of fun. I use it when I’m preparing for an Endurocross event and it’s always challenging. A lot of people took advantage of the Endurocross track’s open practice to see what it was like. I think the majority of racers now have a newfound respect for the sport, but they also had a lot of fun trying to get over the tires and through the rock sections. Around 9:30 we hosted a Brunch with hamburgers and hot dogs, and held the Raffle and Auction. Stewart’s autographed jersey and “A Day with Destry” were the two high-bid items. We also had a ton of raffle items that were a big hit! I wanted to give a huge thanks to my sponsors that stepped up and sent product for the raffle and auction (Kawasaki, Monster, GPR Stabilizers, Jonre Multimedia, Thor, Dunlop, Pro Circuit, Zip-Ty, Motion Pro, Works Connection, Kicker, Hinson, Renthal, Bent, and IMS). I even had a lot of local companies that helped out (Grindingstone, AEO, Rock Stars, Fast’r MC, Athletik Edge, Parkway Chiropractic, NXe, Motoxriders, Accurate Machine, and Motocloth.com). This is a little video 500guy did .

    KX450F plastic

    Fred, I remember talking to you, but I don't recall ever saying anything about a recall on the rear fenders. THERE IS NO RECALL ON REAR FENDERS! Sorry for the misunderstanding. Hope to see you out at the track again. Best Wishes, Destry www.destryabbott.com

    Offroad ?

    I'm planning on racing all the WORCS and H&H's on the 450. I've spent a lot of time on it and it's by far the best bike I've been on. I'm also planning on race a few GNCC's and the ISDE in New Zealand. Hope to see you at the races. Best Wishes, Destry www.destryabbott.com

    KX500 vs. KX450

    Come on guys, the 500 is still a pretty good bike (for the desert). But I can say we've been doing a lot of testing with them back-to-back and the 450 is way better. It's a lot easier to ride and a heck of a lot funner. You'll lose a little on the top-end, but you'll make up for it everywhere else. We've been playing around with gearing and it's not to far off from the 500. Good Luck! Best Wishes, Destry www.destryabbott.com
