Finally did it...

So i average about 1-2 trackdays a month right now and I finally bit the bullet, safety wired my bike, and put down the money to be a racer. I'm now #609 in Willow Springs Motorcycle Club. My first race there will be may 17/18th. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Congrats, I'm trying to do 1 a month and my goal is to race willow springs next year. And just like you, I have no clue how I'm going to pay for it. But first, I have to get my skill level up.
