personally...i tihnk sticking blake in the 14 at such a young age and only one season in sportsman is a bit early. i personally dont know blake, maybe hes more experienced than his age suggests.i thought at most races he handled himself decently but i also saw a couple bad rides. felt he wasnt aggressive enough on the track. to win and be successful with the big dogs, he will have to be alittle bit more aggressive but not jimmy blewett aggressive...dont get me wrong. i guess grandpop and dad feel hes ready to go. i wish him the best of luck. it is a shame though if shawna and eric dont get rides. i had heard about brannick but on a limited schedule. hope that has changed. mod division going to be alot different next year...new sponsor (downs is gone from what i hear)..new faces...blacke, van wickle, collins etc. john blewett III son in a sportsman #5 i also heard. hopefully with jimmy out of the tour ride, he will be there weekly which of course will put more fans in the seats on a weekly basis.
