Nicky at Perris
Photos and text by Jamey
at Perris Raceway on Friday the 13th, was Nicky Hayden burning laps on
the 1/4 mile oval. Hayden who was out of the country for
testing last week returned to sunny California this week for some fun
and relaxation before heading back to Europe next week. What to do?
Dirt Track where his roots lie was the answer, hence Nicky grabbed his
gear and headed to Perris where some top GNC riders were spending time
testing suspension with Race-Tech's Jimmy Wood. On hand was
current Grand National Champion Jared Mees along with National #7 Sammy
Halbert, National #54 (2 time Daytona short track winner) Mikey Rush
and National #98 Kayl Kolkman. The GNC riders were getting ready for
the opening two rounds of their series which kicks off at Daytona in
March. Nicky; he was just having fun and staying in shape.
