This past saturday March 5th Brody McLaughlin set off a little after 4am from his hometown of San Luis Obispo county for to receive a '74 Husky Bullet that he'll be racing in the '22 season and beyond. The location was Blackmore Ranch located in Murrieta. He was joined with current team rider Micah Davis (#118) who's been riding with the TMC Co (Tom Contino) for a few years now. Brody (#29) is 23 years old and is backed by Biltwell, VonZipper, Sea Of Seven and Seaweed & Gravel. Micah Davis who's 22 born in Capo Beach and resides in San Clemente is backed by Biltwell, Madson, Motocutz MX, No Toil, Akai CBD and Reverend Motors. Both these guy's have been racing each other for close to three years now in motocross events Hell On Wheels, Day In The Dirt and the SoCal Vintage MX Classic.
