Meet The Speed


A Ballistic Racers Flyball feature set to air Tuesday night, June 24th, at 10:30pm on #SDLive directly after Padres Live on FOX Sports San Diego.

#SDLive airs one show a week. The show continues to re-air throughout the week, so you have several chances to catch The Ballistic Racers Flyball feature! For example, the show will air Tuesday night but then again Wednesday morning at 11:00 am and 4:30 pm. It will also air over the weekend.

Normally #SDLive airs as scheduled, but during baseball season the shows tends to air an hour of so after schedule depending on how late the Padres game goes. Last week #SDLive aired at 11pm when it was scheduled for 10pm. For now, though, anticipate Tuesday 10:30pm, Wednesday 11am and 4:30pm.

Enjoy the show!

Max is a southern boy for sure. His sire is from Alabama, his mother from Georgia and spent his first year and a half with us in Mississippi. His litter was bred for show competition, but he’s showing them all that he’s more than just a pretty face. He’s a true southern gentleman when he takes his treats during training, but watch your fingers if you offer him liver! This and his increase in running speed has earned him the nickname ‘Liver Man’.

Max takes the hurdles of Flyball like a boss, but refuses to jump onto the couch or the bed. He prefers to sleep on the floor at your feet, or in his den (kennel). He’s definitely not a cuddler.

His favorite toy to bring his Daddy and Mommy at home is his raccoon that he’s had since he was five months old. Unless his Kong is within reach. Then he’ll bring it to the first human he sees and demand peanut butter. You’ll know the demand because he will stare at you as if he’s willing you to do his bidding.

Apollo is 7 and we have had him since he was 10 weeks of age….our only puppy rescue found in a cardboard box with 9 siblings. Apollo has shown himself to be one of the smartest dogs I have ever owned and was beginning to compete in flyball in only 5 months after learning the game. In 2012 he earned his first flyball titles and continues to improve his game. His other interest include agility and cuddling and romps at the beach with his brother.

Dylan the Border Collie has been successfully competing in Flyball since January 2012. He is also moving along quickly with his agility training. However, his first love is Flyball where he gets to act like a maniac! When not in training, ‘Dilly’ loves to play fetch, interact with other dogs, and play games with the garden hose and doggie pool. He is also a great hiking buddy. Although he has tremendous drive and intensity when “working”, he is mellow in the house and quite the personality with his Chuck-it ball which he will drop at your feet or into your hand whenever you are ready to play. Other fun facts: he has turned on the stove (hoping for something yummy to appear?) and locked me out of the house – twice. I am not sure if the latter is reflective of his intelligence, or my stupidity. He also has the interesting habit of stopping to smell any kind of flowers. He slowly wags his tail while taking in the aroma. He makes me laugh every day and it is a joy to have him in my life.

Mochi is a rescue from the San Diego Humane Society. I fell in love with her the minute I saw her – the only dog that was jumping around on top of couches and dying for any attention. I adopted her when she was around 4 months as a playmate for her older brother Buster. We began taking her to agility classes where we met Brian/Joanne. They scouted Mochi as a flyball dog after seeing her run “zoomies” around the agility field. When she began her flyball career, she brought her crazy zoom runs with her. She started every practice jumping over practice gates and running around the field. Finally after much practice, she’s now one of the calmest dogs on the team and can actually stay on the flyball course with just a few zoomies left.

River is one of those border collies that does everything full throttle. A super easy dog to train, he took to flyball immediately. As much drive as he has, he is also a wonderful pet and friend to kids. River is a very competitive dog with extremely high drive who loves to have a job. You don’t want to be in the way when he is coming down the lanes because he has a job to do (just a bulldozer!).

My mother ducked out of her arranged breeding with another Pug and pursued a relationship with a younger male, a 9-month Boston Terrier. I am by far the most active and extroverted of my three brothers and sisters, though I don’t know what they’ve become or where they now live. We were born in the Tee – Santee, that is.I now enjoy a posh existence in the suburbs of Carmel Valley, where I spend most of my time frustrated that my humans won’t play with me every waking moment. I understand that they’re lazy and out of shape, but that doesn’t mean I have to be too. Like most men, I tend to focus on one thing at a time, frequently on balls. Tennis balls, baseballs, basketballs… if it moves, I’ll chase it. Being a mixed breed isn’t easy. I’m not recognized by the American Kennel Club, and I can’t compete at those stodgy dog shows. But I will soon become a ninja master flyballer, much like my Chinese predecessors of yore.
