Ron was 18 years old when he started racing MX and Desert in the SoCal area until 1993. Then he moved around the country for a bit doing a race here & there.

What he enjoys most about motocross is the people, the speed & especially enjoys that it’s a challenge to him.

Ron’s Uncle was in the Oregon chapter of IOTMX so Ron joined the AZOT chapter in 2007 and has been racing MX or off-road stuff ever since.

He has raced in 12 of the OT International races and his favorite memory was back in 2017 when he won the 60+ novice IOTMX championship.

When I asked Ron how competitive he is on the race track, he said he was mostly a 5 now but if he races against certain people then he’s more like a 9.

Giving Marty Moates the checkered flag at the 1980 Carlsbad USGP. He was the first American to win the Carlsbad USGP which was a huge deal back then (see picture 4)
