MP: where was your last race and how did it go?
Chad Saultz: My last race was at a area qualifier for Loretta Lynn’s at Wild cat creek mx. Weekend went good, qualified in all my classes, 250/450 B Limited/Mod. Sunday was pretty muddy as a result of some rainy weather that blew in late morning. but all-in-all it was a solid weekend.
Chad Saultz: I got started in this sport when I was about 6 years old. My mom bought me my first bike in Florida. It was a Honda 50. Her brothers use to race years ago and when she saw the bike, it brought back all of her good memories and fun doing Motocross. Funny part is that my dad wouldn’t let me ride it for a year and half. Now my dad is the one going YEAH! and is the most involved and my mom stands back and scratches her head. As for me, the love and compassion for motocross keeps growing with each passing year and strive to keep doing my best. My first race was at Western Reserve MX in Ohio. It was on my 50 and I took two 1st places. After that, I was off running and haven’t stopped riding and racing since.
MP: what other things do you like to do in your free time besides racing?

MP: What is the most challenging obstacle that comes with training and racing?
