Kids and Racing
Posted July 19, 2000 - 07:53 AM
A very very sad accident occurred at Muddy Creek MX Park and a young rider passed away. My prayers and thoughts go out to the family and friends of Scotty Miller. This is very sad and makes you think, as a parent do I let my kids race. I posted this here to let everyone know that we all are praying for the family of Scotty, and no words can replace their loss.
I at times feel like I should not let my son race because of this very thing, but on the other hand he could be seriously hurt or worse in a car accident. Are there any dad's out there that have the same thoughts.
Please ride safe!

I have been around racing for 30+ years and never have seen a death. What happened?
My thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Scotty Miller. God rest his soul.
I would like to take this opportunity to share a thought with you guys. Back in the "old-days". If a rider did a "block-pass", it was considered being cut off and usually there were some very harsh words or blows exchanged after the moto. I have raced and I would rather give the other racer racing room and know that I beat him with my riding skill and not by endangering him and myself with a "block_pass". Any opinions?

If by chance, family and friends of Scotty are reading this forum please bare in mind that one day, we will all be with lost loved ones.
