This just in from friend of MO Bob Dragich: MotoAmerica racer Ashton Yates will be racing in the European Junior Cup at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain this weekend. The son of four-time AMA Champion Aaron Yates, Ashton finished third in the KTM RC390 Cup Championship for the 2016 season, scoring three wins along the way. (That’s Aaron on the right above, and granddad Luckey on the left.)
