My name is Austin Hinkle. I am 9 years old, I turn 10 December 9th, 2008. I ride a 2008 Kawasaki KX 65. I live in Saginaw TX, north of Ft Worth TX. I am in the 4th grade. I am in the pee Wee 65 amateur class in TCCRA. I am currently 8th in the standings of TCCRA but scored a 5th this weekend at Honey Grove so hopefully will move up when the tallys are entered. There is one race to go in Jacksborro.
I hope to make it in the top 3 places in my next series. I want to get a really big trophy at the end of the year for the over all award.
The two that I remember the best are at Crafton TX and Antellope Hills TX. I was knocked over on the second corner in Crafton, so started off last out of 28 riders and fought my way back to 12th at the finish. In Antellope Hills I was third at the hole shot and washed out, had trouble getting my bike started and was way behind (last, 27th), I rode as hard as I could and ended up 11th. Those were two not so good finishes but I rode my best to work my way back up in the standings.
