It's not everyday that someone you know gets a national spotlight! However, when it does happen,  you have to share the news! One of my bests friends, Derek Rankin, is living his dream traveling the world with the sport of Supercross.

Rankin, a Boonville native, has been a mechanic for a Pro Supercross team for a few years now. Over the weekend, he was featured on Supercross Facebook page showing off his work on Justin Bogle's bike.

I can't tell you how proud I am of the guy! We have traveled parts of the country together, sharing our love of pro wrestling, and now he has "made the list" as of one of the best in the world at what he does! He's making a name for himself and doing some big things! Keep up the good work, buddy!
