Pit Bike Junkie Team Rider Hank “Hot-Shoe” Cahill Takes Top Podium at The Indoor Winter Nationals!

February 10, 2012 – Springfield, MO… Thousands of motorsports enthusiasts converged at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds to witness the 10th annual Motorhead Events Indoor Winter Nationals… a wild spectacle of winged karts, hot-rod lawn mowers, flat track bikes and the ever exciting outlaw pit bikes.

Pit Bike Junkie’s newest team rider, 15 year old pit bike phenom Hank Cahill, finished a strong 2nd in the 12” amateur class on Friday night just inches behind 2012 Sho-Me state champion Kyle Lebow.

On Saturday, at the urging of his competitors & the promoter, the young Cahill entered both the 12” amateur & 12” pro classes. Hank easily won both the qualifier & the main event in the 12” Am… but the pro class was stacked with former state champion Jake Marley & Arenacross competitors Kyle Thompson & Tyler Mease.

Cahill won the pro qualifier and in the main event, took the hole-shot and never looked back. In a commanding performance with the crowd cheering him on, “Hot-Shoe” Hank Cahill from Shawnee, Kansas, led every lap and ended the night with 2 qualifier wins & 2 main event wins!

As a Pit Bike Junkie team rider, Hank will be competing in the 2013 Sho-Me State Pit Bike Series on his new Piranha Daytona P150-4V.

The Pit Bike Junkie/Piranha Race Team (founded by “Fantasy” Jim) holds the record for most wins in the Sho-Me State Pit Bike Series with 7 State Championship titles.

Perfect weather & free camping at the track guaranteed an all night party with music & plenty of bench racing!

On Sunday the racers lined up for their free Pit Bike Junkie team t-shirts, anticipating that the bar to bar action in Round 7 of the Sho-Me State Pitbike Series was going to be intense! The crowd of spectators was not disappointed!

Team founder & Vet series point leader “Fantasy” Jim (the world’s oldest pit bike racer) was running mid-pack but managed to increase his 1st place series lead when the 2nd place series rider blew a chain in the final lap of the 2nd moto.

Pit Bike Junkie/Piranha team rider — John “Hustler” Huskey took the holeshot & absolutely smoked the competition in the Vet class on his Daytona powered Piranha P150-4V & moved into 2nd place overall in the series with one race left to go.

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!
