A POSSIBLE WESTERN MOVE
"I might be moving out here pretty soon. My parents want to. That would be radical. Come out here and tear up the skateboard parks. They're tearing them down back east. It sure did go fast."
DESCRIBING THE X-LONG PRO RACER
''Ultimately rad, trick, and dependable ''
MOVING UP TO PRO
"As soon as Harry and every- body retires, I'll let you know (laugh) I'm not in any hurry. I want to ride some 16 Expert first. There aren't too many 16 Experts turning Pro that have been out there blowing the Pros' doors . Atherton sure disappeared I thought he was going to be the one to switch and kill them "
WHAT IT TAKES TO BATTLE THE PRO'S
"I have to come up with too more inches tall, three more inches wade, and none whatsoever backing off. You go into a turn with Kevln McNeal, six feet tall, 190 pounds, and Stu on the other side or you. It's like going between two trains. I don't know about that. All those guys are big.
Once you go Pro you can't go out and play with your car all week. You have to go out and practice.
It's definitely something to be serious about . So I don't think I'll go just yet ''
ON THE TWO PRO CLASSES
"I think this A Pro stuff is kinda lame. If you're going to go Pro, you might is well go Pro. The A Pro class seems like an easier class than 16 Expert right now. Harris and Brackens are the only two A Pros that really are right there, but in 16 expert you have six more guys who are right there. Like the guys at Springfield (ABA national in May) Lee Medlin. Mike Poulson. Eddy King. Rod BeckerIng. Andy Patterson, Don Johle, Joe Claveau, and Danny Wall. Those guys are faster than ninety five percent of the A Pros. It was more like they were the 16 Experts and we were the A Pros
ANY WEIRD HOBBIES?
"No, I just work on my car, a custom street VW. Other than that I have to practice too much.
I do about an hour's worth of starts every day. There's like five of us who get together to see who's the fastest out of the gate two at a time. You can go three off at a time if you want to crash.
The guy in the middle never makes it
BMX ON "WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS''
"I can see me and Jumpm' Jim Pratt going' over those cars at the same time ''
