Number Cruncher Redux: #93

October 27, 2006 9:12am | by:

Hello, guys, welcome to the Redux. We received a message back from the Icon himself on this number. Being that he gave it a second look, we decided to do the same and dive back into number 93 in his honor.



I was just reading the Number Cruncher, and it's not a big deal, but did you know I was also #93? I ran my dad's first pro number (#333) during my first year pro and I didn't really like it, but I figured a 3-digit number looks wrong anyway, so I ran it. The next year though, I actually earned his #93, signed with Team Green Fox and won the Trans-USA support class. We both won some odd titles with that number. My dad won a 250cc national at Talladega! People today would be like, “Talladega? Bailey used to race cars? And what's a Trans-USA support class?”

Above is North Carolina's Broc Tickle taking the 93 to two top-five finishes in the B classes at Loretta Lynn's in 2005. Broc returned to the ranch last summer and turned some heads again with his hard charging style in the A classes. Broc comes into the 2007 season under the radar and is a dark horse contender to do some damage in the Eastern Regional Supercross series.
