In the late ‘90s, Robbie Skaggs was on his way to becoming a big star on the professional circuit but while training at Lake Elsinore, he suffered a career-ending wrist injury. Robbie had to change careers after that and now he lives in Menifee, California, and works as a superintendent for big home building company.

April 25: Jeff “Chicken” Matiasevich was a top Team Green amateur rider in the mid-eighties, winning titles at Loretta’s and Ponca, and it was good enough to secure him a ride for the Factory Kawasaki team. Supercross came easy to Matiasevich, and he rewarded them with back-to-back 125cc Western Region titles in 1988 and 1989. In 1990, Chicken moved up to the big-boy class and won the Las Vegas Supercross. After a couple more years on the U.S. Circuit, Kawasaki offered him a deal that he couldn’t refuse. They wanted him to race the Japanese Motocross Championships and he won the ‘95, ‘96 and ‘97 championships. Matiasevich still makes it out to the races every once in a while and works for his family, which sells and distributes produce nationwide.

April 25: DV 12's wife, Erica Vuillemin.

April 26: Ignition 3's Dick Lague.

April 27: Jeannie Carmichael put everything she had into raising her son, Ricky. From countless hours of driving to the races, early mornings at the racetrack, and countless hours at the practice track to keeping her son focused on his career. It worked, and they put together 15 championships, and he will go down in history as the “Greatest Of All Time.”

April 27: After a couple of seasons of getting hurt, privateer standout Eric McCrummen has put in some impressive rides in the Lites Western Region this year.
