“SPRING A DING DING”;
Recap, Revision, and Review for 2021.
Knowing this Underground facility through and through, Trevor Burns was ecstatic to hear that the 2020 “SPRING A DING DING” championship was going to return to the course yet again. Once the news broke, Burns and the team began to put in a tremendous amount of work, hoping to over-achieve for last year’s event. And with the Texas winter being filled with moisture and capabilities of softer grounds than usual, he understood that the track for this past March, would grow rather grotesque; a war-zone of sorts, by the time the final moto had run. Yet deep down, he yearned for that circumstance; knowing that the more technical the track became, the greater the gap between him and competitors would become. So for practice, he simulated a myriad of scenarios; weaving in and out, and taking advantage of track that had yet been broken down. Every second registered on the course was another token for his arsenal of weaponry; an idea he couldn’t wait to unveil, once the process of racing was initiated. Running the 250 “C” class to begin matters, he would linger in the single-digit registry for quite some time. Up and over the dragon’s back, his “soaking up” over the following double, was an intricate technique that had him prevailing further and further up the leaderboard. Garnering seventh was a mere starting point; before jumping into the sanction of the top ten, in the following hours. Tallying ninth in the duplicate circumstance, a seventh overall was then netted for the final recording of box scoring. Next on the ballot, was the 125 “C” class; where numerous two-strokes would congregate on the starting line, rekindling a nostalgia of the 1990s and early 2000s. Ripping off the line, and immediately shifting into third gear, he would aggressively veer to the left; vying to hug the inside as hard as possible, while escalating into the top five. After laps would transpire, his pace remained imminent; never succumbing to the pressure that was amounting from behind. And as a result, not just one top-five finish would be granted; but a mirroring result in the latter moto would equate to a fourth overall as the dust settled. All of the previously noted contests though were predecessors to the 250 C Jr. (12-17) LTD class; where he constantly hovered around the top five in the first bout of competition. Finishing fourth yet again, it would all boil down to one final episode of performance; where a podium aspiration, most definitely wasn’t a matter considered far-fetched. Methodically, he would craft his way into third; putting his machine just ahead of Logan Jackson as the final horn sounded. Taking the last step on the podium, the bronze medal held within his palm, was a reflection of all the hard-work Burns had been putting in. It’s a notion he desires to repeat, bombarding the competition with an array of antics when the gate is lined for 2021.
