MXMAS: Thats Motorcross for Christmas

Back in the day, Glen Ellyn’s Jim Lambert was a frequent visitor to the motorcross track in Wapella. Jim tells fine tales of traveling to the village brotherly love and even coming back with some hardware from a race or two. Jim is seen pictured below - #767 actually and he’s in a nice spot in the race.

Jim is having a tough bout right now and is in the hospital today fighting away just like he fought in his Motorcross day in Jimtown. The staff at wishes Jim and his family all the best at Christmas and knows that the same fighting spirit that he showed in Wapella will prevail.

Godspeed Jim Lambert! Note: also pictured below is a recent snapshot of Jim in a Billy Jack hat.
