I thought so. Course I was just happy not to come in last...

The three guys ahead of me had raced before. That was literally my first ever race... got a late/bad start, but caught up to the guy ahead of me and passed him at least, so I was happy...

It's a small, technical track, but it's a blast! Great group of guys out there!

Yeah I'm still learning... So I'm building each time out... Next time, I'll be faster, carry more speed, etc. I'll stop clutching as well... haha

Honestly never knew I could get away with that... I've always used it riding street for years. I'll definitely upgrade my game out there... Slowly building and learning.

Watching my vids, for the most part I had much better lines this weekend. Just need to add speed now. A couple turns I brake/downshift a bit too early, and sometime's brake too hard... So it's just something I need to work on. That, along with a bit more lean, body off the bike and I'll be set!

Thanks for the feedback fellas! More pictures are being posted, and I should have my disk soon. So I'll post them all up when I get them. I'll leave you with this for the time being...

Yeah a lot of guys are running some crazy gearing at that track. I'll prob pick up a rear with +4 and keep the front the same and see how it works... Pretty short track that's for sure!

Here's another race practice video. I've got better views of the races and practices Saturday but won't have my GoPro's until this weekend. So these will have to do for now...

Also got some more picture's posted on the photographers site that are pretty cool... I'll have to wait to get them all in the mail... But I'll leave this for now...

As always... More to come...

I'd go stock or closer to stock so I could drive out of those slow turns in 1st. Like they do at Jennings. You wanna drive out of the slow spots in 1st or 2nd!!!!!!
