THE NINE CLUB
Mark Appleyard is the latest to sit down with The Nine Club for an interview. He discusses his roots, sponsorship history, and video parts in this nearly hour-and-a-half conversation. At 15:58, Mark talks about the trip to Tampa Am that landed him on Birdhouse, Adio, and Thunder in one weekend.
“I went to Tampa Am. I don’t remember what year it was. It was before 2000. I went there. It was probably like ’98, ’99. My brother had actually made some money. And he gave me the money to send me there. That was super cool. So I go to Tampa. I was just a little kid. I fly out by myself. I was winging it big time. I don't think I had any hotel reservations or shit like that. I just went there and ended up staying with someone. I got on Birdhouse that day, well during the whole contest thing. This guy guy J. Strickland, I think Reynolds might have been there, and, like, Jeff Lenoce. They hooked me up man. And I got on Adio that day. And I got on Thunder that day. And I’m still on Thunder. Mickey Reyes hooked it up. That was a life-changing day.”
