Dj Macfarlane, rider of the #182 Honda is trying to find a way to get his bike to the California Classic this week. The Florida Native has been training both on and off the bike to prepare himself for the Loretta qualifiers. With this being his last year as an amateur Dj plans to end it with high expectations. We got the chance to catch up with him to see what has been cooking in the Florida heat.
DJ Macfarlane: I was into baseball for a few years, nothing serious. But my cousins had bikes they rode around their house and I had to have one. I really wasn't into racing at first, I'd rather have the dogs chase me around the back yard haha. But I went out to the local track quite a bit and one day it just clicked and I've never let it go.
MP: What's the rest of this year look like for you?
DJ Macfarlane: I'm still trying to get to the California classic, just no luck getting a bike out there. But if it happens I'll be there, also going to hit Loretta's for sure. I really want to do monster cup, so far that's the schedule. Things change so you never know. My goals are set pretty high, this is my last year as an amateur and I've already shown myself I can run up front. So if I stay healthy I think I'll have no problem bring a few championship back home.
