James O’Neal III Salvages a Solid 5th place on a Rear Flat for 3 laps
Honolulu Hills MX Track (Taft, CA) – SXS Youth Stock 250 (6-8) off the start with #1 Aaden Aguilar, #2 Deegan Gonzales, #3 Jackson Mandle, #4 James O’Neal III. Huge pile up on Turn 3 with a handful of cars stuck together.
By the time they were unhooked James moved all the way back to dead last out of 11 racers. He drove hard & fast, making passes moved his way back up to 4th place with 3rd in his close reach. With around 3 laps left, The Factory backed Hisun #127 got a Rear Flat & that sure didn’t stop him.
He drove it all the way to the finish line with the tire about to fly off completely. James secured a Solid 5th place overall even up against all these odds.
Way to go James, giving up is not an option!!
Not bad for a young 7 year old.
