Petey - Poster Girl for Motorcycle Safety in Maryland!

8/2017

As summer 2017 winds down, don't be surprised if you see someone you know representing motorcycle safety in Maryland. PeteyVee (throttlebasics.com) and Maryland Department of Transportation collaborated to develop posters and a series of videos to promote motorcycle safety in Maryland!

 

Motorcycle safety means everything to me, I've seen so many of my friends lose their lives in senseless accidents. Throttle Basics, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit that I started will begin to promote it's motorcycle awareness clinics and Reality Riding Motorcycle confidence classes for all who need more practice, education and just reinforcement in their riding. Check it out at www.throttlebasics.com.

 

Motorcycling is everything to me. If I can be the change that reduces motorcycle accidents and fatalities then I'm stepping up! Feel free to spread the word and check out www.towardzerodeathsmd.com for more information on how you can help promote motorcycle safety! 

Paint the Quarter Mile Pink 2015!!

7/25/2015

Paint the Quarter Mile Pink came and did not disappoint! A field of about 10 women came together to raise money for Bikers Against Breast Cancer and was successful in raising over $12,000.00!!! 

 

The race itself was chock full of excitement!! After two eliminations and horrible bike problems, ya girl Petey went to the semi finals!! The ECU on the bike would not make my normal shift points of 13500 but only 6500!! So racing on the slowest of slow number (13.50)  I managed to stay in it until the semi's!! Just as I was getting ready to compete in the semi's a fuse blows and I have no electronics! Flying blind and on a slow shift point ya girl broke on a 13.50 and manage a faster time of 12.10 (go figure) and was thus elimated at the semi final point! 

 

All in all I had a great time with the girls! Jody Butler, 2nd year participant actually won the race! Congrats to Jody and her team, her win was well deserved!!

2014 Is in the books!!

10/6/2014

The last Maryland Mirock race was held at Maryland International Raceway.  The day started out wet and unpredictable but just like Maryland, it cleared up and the sun shone bright! Unfortunately, the early morning rain made the day go long. First timed run happened at 3pm and the second happened at 9pm. The temperature dropped to 42 degrees and we were freezing our dragracing butts off.  The temperature change agreed with ya girl because I went two rounds on Saturday and would have went a couple of rounds on Sunday but because of a mistake in putting in my dial-in, I was eliminated.  All in all I had a blast racing this season, learned a whole lot about the game and was able to be filmed by my alma mater Morgan State University on my last race. Hopefully, there will be big things to come next year.  There's lots of plans in the works and God willing we will be back bigger and better next year but the Petey you know and love will stay the same...Faaaaaaaaaaaaaast!!!! hahaha

Petey the Road Racer??

8/16/14

Who'd a thunk it?? Petey in the curves. After attending Moto GP in Indianapolis, I was all fired up!  The race was exciting, meeting the racers was exciting, seeing my hero VALENTINO ROSSI was incredible!!! Soooo I had to see what all the fun was about myself!  My friends Marika and Beth invited me to a Team Pro Motion Track Girl Day and the rest is herstory!!  I went through the class, learned how to find and hold my line and roundin the curves came naturally. I loved every bit of what I learned.  YES!! I was scared to death, but that good scared like when you can't wait for the next good scare. Stay tuned folks...more to come...definitely!!

Petey in the community

11/12/2013

With assistance from United Healthcare, Home Depot and the Cal Ripkin Sr. Foundation The Towanda Recreation Center Boys and Girls Club was transformed in a day into a brand new place for the community children to come to. We scraped, sanded, painted, schalacked and replaced the old for the new and at the end of the day we presented it all to the kids of the Park Heights community. I had so much fun and made new friends and gave back.  All in a day and the life of ya girl Petey!! Stay tuned, this is just the beginning!!

Mirock Maryland

October 5, 2013

It was the hottest October day on record but the show must go on!! Racers came to race and we did just that.  Practice runs commenced and ya girl got two good runs in despite second gear refused to cooperate ;/.  After a long morning of hurry up and wait, Street ET class got underway.  I saw my light and I left, little did I know I left too early.  Dial a 9.75 and ran a 9.8...so close yet so far...we'll get up next year.  Had a great time, got to see some good friends and had a great race day!!!
