Come watch us race Jesse James this Saturday

So Jesse James has this new show coming out on the Spike TV network called, wait for it…

 “Jesse James is a Dead Man”


Jesse James takes on the role of a modern-day daredevil in “Jesse James Is A Dead Man,” a new, original weekly series on Spike TV premiering in February 2009. Each episode will follow James as he readies himself for a different death-defying challenge. Preparing for the risky challenge can often be as dangerous as the challenge itself as he endures a battery of tests to prepare. With CGI effects, viewers get a taste of the enormity of the stunt, revealing the physiological stress James’ body will endure. Some of the dangerous challenges he’ll be facing include the harrowing, grueling and lawless off-road race, the Baja 500, and hitting over 200 mph on a Nitro bike supercharged by ultra-combustible nitro-methane fuel… (etc)

So they contacted us several months back about getting Jesse James in the cockpit of a F1 sidecar for a day to race with us out at Streets of Willow… All the business stuff was done, and well… it’s going to happen this coming Saturday the 22nd, we’re going to be one of the first episodes run. The production team said invite people to watch… A good majority of the top FI and FII teams on the West Coast will be there for the shoot.

It should be interesting, this will be the first time Sarah and I have our new F1 Becker on the track, so we’ll be fighting a steep learning curve with cameras pointed at us.

The flier they’re handing out around the office at Willow Springs…

I think the ‘new sidecar’ that will be there might be that new chopper-sidecar he built. This is what he will be racing, it might look a little familiar.  It’s been re-tooled and the cockpit has been modified extensively to fit Jesse James’ 6’3″ frame.  And well… we know it’s fast.

So if you’re not doing anything Saturday and have gas money and a spare 10 dollar bill, come down to Streets of Willow and watch Jesse James give F1 sidecars a try.
