TWS (Texas World Speedway) CMRA Thanks!!!

WOW! That's the first word that comes to mind. When we first started this season my main goal was to finish in the top five with the possibility of a podium finish. Never once did I think I would spend the entire season chasing not one...but two championships! This season has been a roller coaster of a ride, I've managed to experience the highs and lows associated with racing. And let me tell you...it's been a of a ride!!!

I would like to thank every single person involved in making this happen. It's amazing how much my friends and family(Brenden,Hayden,Caleb,Austin,Dev,Alanna,Sher ry,Don,Grandma)have contributed towards making this season possible. Something as simple as words of encouragement or nutritional(Thanks Captain M)help. You guys were always willing to lend a hand and never once asking for anything in return. Without you guys none of this would have been possible...

Buck Beasley...The man responsible for helping me get started. With his guidance I've managed to become a better rider and person. Thank you for everything you've done Buck.

Tony Ta...making every single mile we've traveled together memorable. Thank you for all the laughs. You sir, are one of a guy!!!

Derek Steptoe...all the late nights studying and researching so that we would have our stuff together. The countless hours spent at the track helping me dial the bike in. The trackdays, the race weekends, the phone calls. Always checking on me to make sure everything was in perfect working order. Thank you D-money!!!

Jason Hanning...This guy can turn a wrench like nobody's business! Alot of you are familiar with the intense maintenance involved on race bikes. He made sure that if the 09 or 07 needed anything it was taken care of. Knowing that your bike is in proper working order allows you to focus on the task at hand. He's saved my on more than one occasion! Thank you Hanning!!!

Sunny(Sunny's Motorsports)...providing parts and service that has allowed us to be competitve. Whatever we needed, he made sure to make it happen. One of the main reasons we were able to be so successful this season. Thank you Sunny!!!

Ralph(Kingralphthe3rd)and Raya...after the first TWS (Texas World Speedway) race my 07 suffered engine damaged. I remember receiving the phone call, it was Ralph on the other end. I just got you and 09 to ride, stop by Sunny's and pick it up when you get a chance... Had it not been for that I'm sure I would've missed the next race. Thank you Ralphy!!!

Robert DaSilva, Todd Ritz, Jason Wells, Gabe Hernadez for helping me throught this whole year. You guys have been there every step of the way...

Hayley(Boots)Booth, Ashley Cargle, Pam McCoy for setting up the surprise birthday party and everyone who helped with the surprise birthday(ak20's)gift. You guys kick !!!

Thank you to everyone who has offered congratulations, a pat on the back, a good luck, a job well done, or a simple handshake. It really means alot that so many of you were pulling for me. I'm glad that I was able to bring it home.

To all of the racers who offered any tips or tricks, most of these tracks were new to me and never once did any of them hesitate to help me out. Guys like Larry Myers, Bryan West, Ty Howard, William Guthrie, Will Shupack, Carlos Lescale, Billy Gonzales, Allan Campell, Ronnie Hay, Patrick Hart, Brandon Spradling, and Linz Leard. Thank you guys!!!

The entire CMRA staff...you guys host an awesome show!

Track day orgs...Longhorn Motorcycle School, LSTD AND Ridesmart. We're fortunate to have so many dates to choose from. Putting in the seat time has helped me progress as a rider.

David Roy/Dunlop Tires/North Texas Superbikes...for providing quality service and sticky tires to help me secure two championships.

To my sponsors for showing support throught the season...

Buck Beasley/Longhorn Motorcycle School
Sunny's Motorsports
Tom's Paint and Body
10-33.org
Al's plumbing
Ralph and Raya's Fun House
North Texas Superbikes/Dunlop tires

Last but most certainly not least...Mama Gonzo. Thank you for all your support, you've helped in so many ways, this season would not have been possible without you. Thanks mom...

I said I would keep this short...didn't really happen did it I know I'm forgetting someone...

Alonzo, Alonzo, Alonzo, you sir truly the "peoples champ"

you killed it this season (with a factory motor), i had to throw that in! You never once let it go to ur head. when at the track you are always there to lend a helping hand never thinking you are better than the person asking for help. i have NEVER heard you talking about how fast you are or how good you are......well i guess we all take care of that for you jk

you are a good person and a better friend! good things happen to good people Alonzo and you are proof of that.

Congrats again you deserve it !

Alonzo, what can I say but job well done. You had set backs. You had oh t moments. You had a little bit of everything thrown at you this year and you handled it masterfully.

You are truly gifted on two wheels and as a human being.

Now......Experts!

Fantastic first race man, when you came out of the chicane on to the front straight with the low line and had Blake gapped, I actually got goosebumps! That was an epic race!

Congrats man, you deserved it fo sho!

congrats alonzo! You may have surprised yourself at oak hill but the rest of us knew you had it in you. It's been fun this year. You and tony made my first year of racing a year to remember. Stay humble and keep helping us slow guys. hopefully we can chase you down one day! Now let's pop some bottles
