Since 1977, the Peters family has been connected to the North Dakota Motorcycle Association.
As an assistant principal at Mandan Middle School and NDMA board president, Tom Peters has been going to races all over the state and has won 19 state championships during his career.
However, for the first time in two decades, he has decided to hang up his motorcycle helmet and focus on watching and helping his two sons race.
Tom’s siblings are also involved with motocross racing. His brother, Jim Peters, is a past NDMA member, his sister Rachel Buresh, operates the scoring computer that keeps track of results.
Tom’s sons, Ryan and Daniel, both placed in the top 3 in various events at the motocross races at the Southwest Motocross Association Track. The family has been involved in Dickinson motocross for about 20 years. They made friends during their many years at motocross race and formed bonds with fellow racers.
“The cool thing is that there are a lot of families here,” Jim said. “It’s kind of neat to see families. You’ll see maybe mom or dad riding and a couple kids, or at least a bunch of them cheering them on.”
