The dirt slingin' #14 Cobra is unstoppable in the 50 (4-6) class for the liquid Nitro Arenacross Series, where he is currently in the points lead. Last year an unfortunate wreck at the Sunset Ridge Loretta Lynn Regional Qualifier left him short of being able to line up with the fastest riders in the country. Parker is feeling confident and has the need for speed as plans to continue working hard to be right in the mix of action at the 2015 Loretta Lynn's Amateur National. Watch out because the #14 is coming for you...
MP: What’s up Motoplayground here, to start of with tell us what you’ve been up to today..
Parker Kiebach: Today has been another good day at David Harrison Elementary School learning and having fun with my friends. I have also been preparing myself for this weekend’s Liquid Nitro ArenaCross race in Tulsa, OK where I will be competing in the 50cc 4-6 class and also the 50cc Open class on my 2013 Cobra 50 JR and my 2014 King Cobra 50. We’ve had a break for a few weeks so I am very anxious to get back on the track and race.
MP: What got you started in the sport of motocross?
Parker Kiebach: My parents bought me a motorcycle for my 5th birthday. After riding in fields and on flat surfaces for three months, I decided I wanted to race (mostly, this decision was from watching the SuperCross races I had attended in St. Louis). At this time, I we were unfamiliar with any of the local tracks except 1. The only opportunity to practice on this track to see if I would enjoy it was on days when races were scheduled. We took my 2013 CRF50 to the track on race day so I could ride on a motocross track. After going out and practicing twice, my parents asked me what I wanted to do next. My immediate response was “I want to race”. Needless to say, we stayed and raced that same night. I was hooked!
