{Guest Post} Author Cheyanne Young & GIVEAWAY

When Hana Fisher moves to the small town of Mixon, Texas to live with her dad, she dreads having to work at the boring pile of dirt he fondly calls a motocross track. But when she gets there, she finds the rinky-dink dirt bike track from her childhood has grown into the most respected racing track in the state.

Now popular by association, Hana endures the pain and sweat of working in the summer heat in order to fit in with a sport she’s growing to love. She gets a real family, a best friend and not just one, but two of the fastest racers trying to win her heart.

When Hana abuses her status as the track owner’s daughter to help the gorgeous Ryan Russo cheat in the biggest race of the year, she risks more than just losing her job. Every good thing in her life is at stake now- her friends, her dad’s trust, and Ash Carter- the kind-hearted racer who may not be as alluring as Ryan, but is proof that nice guys don’t always finish last.

Author of Motocross Me, Cheyanne Young, has stopped by for a guest post about how Hana Fisher spends her day on the racing track.

Having never worked at a motocross track, I had to use my imagination for Hana's job responsibilities at her dad's track. One thing I do know for sure is that waking up at the butt crack of dawn is definitely on a motocross worker's to-do list. Racers tend to arrive very early in the morning and Hana would need to be there by 6am to start signing them in. She learned a long time ago that there is no point in taking time to put on makeup or even dress nice for a day at the track. Texas summers are brutal, and all that makeup would sweat off anyway.

After signing in racers and spectators, she would need to help out in the registration booth, which is where racers sign up and pay for which race they're going to participate in. This is one of Hana's favorite responsibilities because she gets to meet and talk to the racers, namely the hot ones.

Once the races start, Hana is free to walk around and do what she wants, although at times she'll be needed for random track jobs. One of these is assembling trophies. I really wanted to include this in the book because when I was a kid, I remember going into the score tower at my local motocross track and seeing the owner sitting on the floor, looking totally bored and annoyed as he assembled dozens of trophies from boxes scattered on the floor. That's something I would never think of, and that job falls to Hana now.

When the races are over, Hana enjoys dinner with the rest of the track staff. She probably has to pick up random trash on the ground, or fix anything that's out of place. Then she goes home, goes to bed, and wakes up to do it all over again.

I don't want to give away the ending of the book, but I imagine that now Hana spends a lot of her downtime with the boy she chose. ;-) It's hard working at a motocross track, but I know she wouldn't have it any other way.

Plus she has a killer tan.
