My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Jeff Stanton “It was anybody’s ball game. Whoever is going to take it is going to take it.”
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Denny Stephenson “Everyone goes in the right class, head-to-head with the best in your class. There are three long, and usually hot, motos, and there’s no lucking out and getting a championship, you have to earn it.”
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Jeremy McGrath McGrath went 1-1-2 to win his one and only AMA Amateur National Championship. Which begs the eternal bench-racing question asked around the Racer X Online office: Who the hell beat Jeremy McGrath when he was racing the C class?!
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Mike Alessi “I don’t know what came over me, but I just dug really deep and I just told myself, ‘I am not going to lose this moto.’ I charged and charged and charged, ran Villopoto down again and passed him on the last lap. I won the moto and the title.”
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Adam Cianciarulo “Again, at the time, I was probably pretty bummed, but looking back now, I wouldn’t have changed those results for the world. I will always remember Dalton Myers winning that race."
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Ricky Carmicahel “I got out of control after the tunnel jump and ran into Bogard and he fell. Then I guess he decided to wait a lap for me to come around and he just took me out!”
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Jeff Emig “It certainly wasn’t the one from 2003 when I looped out right in front of everyone, including the ESPN and Moto World cameras were there, and I ripped my throttle off."
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Zach Osborne “Our third moto was the last moto of the week and we really had nothing to lose, so I went out there and was able to ride to what I felt was my true potential.”
My Favorite Loretta Lynn’s Moto Nick Wey There was a time in Loretta Lynn’s history when Dewitt, Michigan’s Nick Wey was the winningest amateur of all.
