We wanted these new folks to know that their predecessors were totally cool people, in addition to being awesome athletes.
Today we're gonna tell you some stuff about a Canadian transplant named Jeremy Sartain. Like Curt Wood, Jeremy has not been a visible force on the regional racing scene since 2009, which was a recovery year for him. For those that don't know, Jeremy's athletic career, indeed his life, was almost ended by a devastating motorcylce accident in 2008. Before then he was, purely and simply, ....
