Spinning up the rear makes you feel like a bauce

Finding out it's because your drain plug backed itself out and covered your rear tire and half the track in oil makes you feel like an unpaid intern.

the CMRA head tech will wire your bike down here for $60. that's cheap enough to get it done even if you're NOT racing.

Yeah, shit was all drilled and ready for it, I was just lazy. I am a dumbass. Ruined the SBK Pro rear I bought off of you too. Got all of about 8 laps in on it.

Closed down the track for about an hour to get it cleaned up. Nobody went down, including me, or my buddy who was following DIRECTLY behind me. Hopefully the motor is ok too.

It definitely could have been worse, but sucks that it ruined my first day of the season. Was really hoping to get the new bike dialed in before I head out to the Pridmore school at the end of the month.

I got about half way around the track before I got the black flag, but I suspected I was losing oil when I spun it up like crazy getting onto the front straight, and then my left boot got very slippery. The red flag came out right away, and I thought maybe I ran through some oil that someone else dropped, but then I got the black from the next corner worker.

I tried my best to stay off the line since I wasn't sure if it was me or not, but you've inevitably got to go across it at some point.
