Found Out About AZOT
Years With AZOT 1
Like Most About AZOT The relationships/moto family we now have! We really enjoy coming out to spend time with the AZOT family on and off the track. Thank you to AZOT for welcoming our little girl with pre-race fist pumps, treats, and open arms when both mom and dad are on the line! Racing is new to me, and the first few races were not enjoyable until I was welcomed by members of AZOT.
Motocross Goals Stop taking last place and work towards being a top 3 contender in the Novice Class: AND to be able to just keep improving so I can ride for many years to come.
Favorite Motocross Pro Ken Roczen
Other Hobbies Riding Horses, Photography, and working with animals

McKalie’s family has always had ATV’s & snow mobiles so she knew that she wanted to do something like that so she worked hard to save her money so she could buy her first motorcycle 11 years ago.

She likes motocross because it builds her confidence and lets her escape from her Mommy & work duties.

McKalie saw the AZOT International race advertised online so she was planning on coming out to see what we were all about on that Sunday but the race ended up getting rained out. A few weeks later she raced for the first time ever at the ACP track in the women’s class. Later that day she ran into Kat & Mike and they suggested she join AZOT so she’s been with us ever since.

When I asked McKalie how competitive she is when it comes to racing…she told me she was a 6. She likes to win but she also knows that she has a long way to go.

McKalie wants to express her appreciation to everyone in the AZOT club. She has been able to transform Tray-Tray from being so shy that she wouldn’t leave her Mom’s side for anything and now the little girl will go to several different members while her Moms out on the track. Tray-Tray also loves to give fist bumps to any member that passes by.
