I know this one shortcut from the bus stop the the front straight that will dramatically lower your lap times..

Re: Buttonwillow anyone?

I got bumped and took a "shortcut" through the mud rather than the esses once during a rainy event there. It didn't help my lap times any, but more than the bike needed to be cleaned.
Oh, and I still passed the punk that did it the next lap, going up the second hill - after the banked righty.

Yea it can get quite muddy there after some rain....I'm guessing it's pretty hard out there though as it's been 100-110 for the last 1.5 weeks..

I'll be up there Sunday, but wasn't planning on getting there until around 5:00pm. It's going to be hot & humid from the looks of it. Good luck Gordon!!
