James P. Hayes Sr. begins his storied motorcycle career in the shade of a tree atop Roan Mountain, Tennessee, in 1936. Winston Johnson is a multitalented motocross racer offering other riders a track to practice, play, and worship. The facility opened in 2019 off Interstate 81 in Abingdon, Virginia. Johnson is not only a businessman but also the lead minister at Renewed Church in Kingsport, Tennessee. Between the years of 1936 and today, hundreds of dirt-track heats, flat-track mains, endurance runs, scrambles, cross-country events, hare-scramble courses, hill climbs, motocross tracks, and field events have been held in the region to give thousands of riders a chance to compete. Some of the many competitions and special events held over the past seventy years are reported in the book.
