Kawasaki’s Ricky Dietrich: 2 races, 2 days, over 2000 miles apart!
It’s almost a Cinderella-like story – one day riding Off Road races for Team Green, next day he’s joined the powerful Monster Energy Kawasaki Supercross / Motocross team!
But that’s not all – this weekend will be a special weekend for Kawaski’s Ricky Dietrich. Read below the press release from Kawasaki, and you’ll understand a bit better : ) Not only will he race the AMA Motocross this Saturday in PA, he’ll ride the WORCS event Sunday literally on the other side of the country in Toutle, WA!
Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Ricky Dietrich is set for a busy weekend as he will race the motocross event on Saturday at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, Penn. and then fly west for Sunday’s WORCS event at Riverdale Raceway in Toutle, Wash.
Dietrich is currently second in the WORCS season standings just one point out of the lead and is coming off of a fifth-place overall finish last weekend at the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Racing National Motocross Championship event at Freestone County Raceway in Wortham, Texas.
“It is going to be a busy weekend,” said Dietrich. “I’ve been training really hard, but you never really train for something like this. I know we have made a lot of plans to make sure everything goes smoothly. I’m not sure what is going to be harder, racing two different races or possible flight delays.”
Dietrich’s two races will be more than 2000 miles apart with the motocross event ending just before 6 p.m. ET on Saturday and the WORCS race starting at 12 p.m. PT Sunday.
