By Bill Kelly

THE DALHART TEXAN

While many people may wait years or even a lifetime to reach the pinnacle of their career or sport or hobby, if ever, Dalhart’s Thomas Ralston has made it to the top of at least one mountain while still in high school. Ralston recently qualified for the Monster Energy AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, also known as Loretta Lynn MX since it is held at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Tennessee. This is basically the “Super Bowl” of amateur motocross.

Ralston lives in Dalhart but goes to school in Texline, and will be a sophomore this coming year at Texline High School. He has been both riding and racing motorcycles for about eight years. “Whenever I was about six years old we started watching this thing called Loretta Lynn’s MX on YouTube and that’s basically where it started.” Thomas Ralston said. His dad, Troy Ralston, said that Thomas’s first race was in August of 2013.
