Excelling his way through the amateurs and now making a name for himself in the pro ranks, is Jacob Hayes, riding for team Babbitts Kawasaki. Jacob was in the race for the AMSOIL Arenacross championship last year but came up just four points short behind Kyle Regal, one of the closest finishes between first and second in AMSOIL Arenacross. We caught up with Mr. Hayes to see what he's been doing lately and what his game plan is for the rest of this year.
Jacob Hayes: I've just been keeping myself busy with training and some local races here and there.
MP: Talk about your training and what it consist of.
Jacob Hayes: I hired a personal trainer before the 2015 series. (Steve Vittone) he's been a huge part of my program lately. He loves keeping me on my toes, always changing up my routine. I can't thank him enough.
MP: Let's talk about Arenacross, give us a recap of last years season and how everything went.
Jacob Hayes: The season as a whole for me was a roller coaster ride, a lot of ups and downs, but in the end we pulled it together in order to get myself into the championship battle.
AH to the hizzzy is in the house looking to make things happen for the 2015 season. The #299 of Ashton Hayes had a tough get off at Daytona leaving him with a broken foot. On the road to recovery, and Itching to ride you boy's better watch out when Hayes gets back on the track. Still training off the bike, It's going to take more than a broken foot to stop this Michigan native. We got a chance to talk with the man himself and see what the plans are lookin' like for the rest of the year.
