Hello, race fans! Welcome to the Number Cruncher, brought to you by
Shift MX. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for
interest in the new Shift MX Number Cruncher—the e-mails and feedback
has been amazing! In addition, its awesome how many hard-core moto
historians there are out there. I consider myself a fairly salty
motocross encyclopedia, but I am not too proud to mention that some
mistakes have been brought to my attention. It's great to see how many
people are as passionate about the old school as we are here at Racer X.
This week we take a quick look at a number that has some amazing history to it. The #39 has seen some good days in motocross. The great and the not-so-great have worn it to the starting line while championships, headlines, and hardship fell in their wake. Here is some of the history of #39.
That’s it for this week. Stayed tuned to the Shift Number Cruncher, because the next few weeks are going to see some really, really cool numbers get crunched.
