 Joshua Hitchens (Hitch) – Airway MXP General Manager
I would like to take a minute to post a little about myself. Most of you probably have no idea who I am. My name is Joshua Hitchens. I was born and raised here in Spokane and I love it to this day. I was first introduced to the world of motorcycles at the young age of 5, with a Suzuki Jr. 50, and have had a deep-rooted love for the sport ever since. I don’t need to explain what happened next for the simple fact that a lot of you have the very same story…This track is all of ours. I view us as one big family bound together by the love of the sport of motocross. This is our practice facility were we all go to have fun and to create memories that last.

Hello all,

Well I would like to say my story starts like many others that love motor sports, I was hooked at a young age for speed and danger, LOL.  I started riding at the age of 6 years old on a 1977 Honda 50, and absolutely was hooked. Now many years later married for 17 years to my beautiful wife and best friend Shelby.  We have two kids that race Tanner (15) and Madelyn (10), for both this is their sport of choice.  I want to grow this sport on every level, and with the help of or advertisers and sponsors we will be able to do that here at Airway X.    I am very passionate about the sport,  and am very excited about  what we have planned here for the future of your track!!

 Greg & Carrie Gray (Gateman) – Airway MXP
Hi we are Greg and Carrie Gray. We have 3 amazing children, Jennifer, Justine, and Jake. We first started hanging out and racing at Airway when Jake was 12 years old in 2002. It was then, that we met many new faces who would become lifelong friends. We raced for 5 years until our son became a Marine. In 2008, Greg started working at Extreme Motorsports as the “Gateman”. I joined him in 2010 in the sign up booth, and at the finish line as lap counter. This is my third season and Greg’s 6th at Extreme Motorsports. We enjoy watching all the new and seasoned 3 riders. It has been a pleasure to work with Andy, Josh, and Crystal James, and all the fabulous track crew. Looking forward to working with the new owner Josh, in the upcoming season. See ya on race day!

Part of my responsibilities include scheduling of track crew on race days, assign track crew duties, provide crew direction and feedback and anything else that may need attention.  On rare occasions, I also get the opportunity to announce (when Tripp lets me).  If you have any ideas, suggestions or criticism (constructive or otherwise), please feel free to track me down.
