Personal History

About me: First things first, my name is Louis D. Nash. I'm from Redding, California, and I love motocross. Racing is a relatively new aspect of my life, as I have only been racing for about 8 years. I'm 24 now, so that makes me 16 at my first race. At that time, I was well on my way to graduating high school with a 4.05 GPA. During that time, I participated in many extra curricular activities. Even now, a recent graduate at CSU, Chico, my GPA remained in the top few percent and I keep a public service profile. I received the Redding Dirt Riders scholarship and am a member of the Chico State Dirt Riders, in addition to being a rider for the JDA Racing team. I am now an engineer with CalTrans. My family owns a farm in Redding, and I travel up there each week to do farm work to support my racing and education. I do my best to be a well-rounded individual, a person that a company can be proud to support.

Riding Goals

Plan: For the coming year, I plan on racing in the C class around the West Coast. My team and I travel as far as Washougal for the National there. We have also been known to ride all across Oregon, Northern California and even Idaho (way too cold to do often). Southern California may be on the list of things to do this year as well, as the team wants to hit all the West Coast Nationals. I have only raced a few races in the Junior class thanks to a shortage of support (thanks to the economy), time and money (thanks to college). However, I am back up to speed and the bike runs great.

Competitive Highlights

Results: My first Junior race I placed 10th in the EStreet MX race at Riverfront. After that I placed 12th at Washougal after starting in dead last (about 30th place), thanks to a pretty crazy pile up. I didn't even crash but I ended up stuck on guys on the ground. Before that, I was running in 2nd place in the EStreet MX 450 D series before I had to pull out of the running with only one race to go.
