“Collin began riding at a young age and has had a passion for the sport ever since,” said Heidi, whose husband, Travis, is in Washington with Kay and his dad, Jason, for the GP Series #1 event. “He’s waited for this for so long.”

In his third year of competitive racing, Kay (No. 21), who began riding at age 5 with hopes of turning pro, will join Kisor (No. 377) aboard his 2009 Suzuki RMZ250.

“I wish I could be there to watch, but I’m glad I’m not at the same time,” Heidi said.
