Scott Russell The Cat of Loxahatchee, Florida, aboard his human Henry DeGouw's Yamaha.
Former AMA Pro racer Henry Degouw--who now promotes CCS Florida events--e-mailed in this photo of his cat Scott Russell, shown posing on DeGouw's Yamaha YZF-R1 in front of leathers from riders DeGouw has worked with in the past.
The following note came in along with the photo:
"This is Scott Russell the cat--not Jack Russell the dog.
"A very fast cat, like his namesake.
"His caretaker is Henry DeGouw of Loxahatchee, Florida."
