John Huskey Edges Out “Fantasy” Jim To Take State Vet Champion Title

October 23, 2012 – St. Louis, MO: Pit Bike Junkie Team Rider John Huskey wins the State Vet Title at Riverbottom MX/Crybaby Campground in Lake of the Ozarks, MO. riding his new Piranha P150-R4V Daytona pit bike.

The big story going into the final round of the ShoMe State Pit Bike Series was in the Vet class where Pit Bike Junkie team rider John Huskey was within 3 points of series leader & 3 time State Vet Champ – “Fantasy” Jim (the world’s oldest pit bike racer).

Moto 1 saw Huskey take 2nd while “Fantasy” Jim finished 3rd. Jim would have to beat Huskey in the next moto to keep his hopes of a 4 year winning streak alive!

In Moto 2 with one final burst of determination the old guy took the holeshot but couldn’t hang on to his lead & faded quickly to mid pack. When Huskey went down hard in lap 3 ”Fantasy” Jim took advantage with a pass but there would be no Hollywood finish…The hard charging Huskey would make up ground & take the Moto 2 win for the overall & State Champion Title!!

What’s more amazing is that John missed the 1st race of the season & took the Series Title competing in just 7 of the 8 races…Now that’s some great racing!
