I wanted to give all of you the latest information on Aaron. As of this month he has started physical therapy and sees a wound care specialist at St. Mary's in Victorville. (For those of you don'r know Aaron's story, he was struck by a hit and run driver in October 2007 when he was only 17. He is paralyzed from his ribcage down.)

His motorcycle has been completely rebuilt from stem to stern thanks to the generous contributions from members of District 37 and Race-Dezert. Thank you to everyone who purchased t-shirts and sent contributions.

Now, the best news of all....Aaron will be riding again soon. Aaron will be showing off his bike for the first time in public on Saturday June 6th at Milestone MX in Riverside. Aaron will be riding the inaugural lap of the 2009 AMA So Cal Motocross Series.


This is a night race and his lap will be at approximatly 4:30 pm. If anyone is in the area please come out and meet Aaron, wear your faster faster shirt and let's cheer him on. He will be riding a parade lap so all the entrants will be riding behind him. I get goose bumps just thinking about it.

Then on Sunday June 7th, I am hosting a BBQ at my house in Hesperia. This is my way of thanking everyone for their contributions and good wishes. I'll be doing Tri-Tip, Chicken and Pulled Pork along with all the fixin's. If you've ever been to one of my cook-outs you know not to miss it. I cook everything from scratch just like my mom taught me.

If you would like to come up and join us please send me a PM so I can send you my address and directions. I have room for trailers and campers so come on up.

I hope some of you can come out to Milestone on the 6th. It is going to be a VERY emotional day for all of us.

"Back in Action) Ride in TT#1 still awaits... (like an angry storm on the horizon):eek:
His life will never be the same.... :D
We were talking about that just the other day. I think he is going to call you soon to when you might be testing in the High Desert again.

I have seen the transformation in Aaron over the past couple of months. He is once again full of life. He is actually happy. Thanks to so many great people.

The preliminary hearing was held today at approx 1:45 pm. The evidence was submitted to the judge, a total of 4 wittnesses were called including Aaron. The judge found that there was enough evidence to hold the suspect in custody until June 16th when the trial will begin.

Aaron did a great job on the stand today. The evidence presented was sometimes graphic and hard to listen to, but in the end I believe justice will be served for Aaron.
