Motorcycles are a family affair. “I grew up on motorcycles. I grew up on a ranch bordering the BLM,” said Max’s dad, Dan, who grew up in Salmon, Idaho. “I had a track right out of my back yard. That’s what I did.” Dan is in charge of maintaining the racing bikes, KTM 50 CCs, which are the required size for Max’s age group. “The motors are all the same,” Dan explained, “The regulations focus on tire size and suspension. It’s basically to give the different sized riders the same playing field.” Dan says that the racing is safe—which may seem surprising to those used to watching motocross at the fair or on television.

CHALLIS - Sheriff's Report
Chief Deputy Mike Talbot cited Scott Whitworth of May for leaving the scene and failing to report an accident after he hit and killed a cow on Highway 93 sometime after midnight on June 3. That led to another accident soon afterwards in which the driver of a prisoner transport van hit the same cow still lying in the middle of the road after Whitworth had hit it.
Lemhi County resident Nicole Wilson came upon the crash soon after Whitworth hit the cow and saw him speaking with a woman in a car parked behind his 2006 Toyota Tundra pickup on the highway.
