Work is tough...

...after a day of racing. Being at the track is a blast despite how well you race!

I didn't do too well "place wise", but I turned some faster lap times, and am feeling better.

I was worried about my back tire as it's about due to get replaced, when in T3, on lap one someone tried to T-bone me at the apex. Really effed w/ my head. I stood up and rode into the grass thinking that my tire let go. I didn't find out until later that someone actually hit me and we both went off into the grass. Seems the dude has a history of this as well.

Anyway, neither of us went down but I was tentative thinking that the back tire was fried and I was just cruising trying to collect the points and hang onto 2nd in the "whack pack" for Novices. Guess who is in third? Yep, the dude that hit me. I don't think it was intentional, but pisses me off nonetheless.

Anyway, had a blast and am just glad that myself or any of my crew went down.

Oh, 2nd race of the day someone blew a motor and oiled the track from the kink through T12. About 5 guys went down. It was aweful, but no one seriously injured thankfully. That also was messing w/ my head. The track was fine after much oil dry and volunteering from crowd/crew. But it looked different and I was still taking it a little easy through T12.

All in all a success.

Re: Work is tough...

almost sounds like you slowed down and gained some time for yourself.

keep up the good work. how far are you from first and how many races left?

glad you didn't go down either. I don't want your father's paint work getting all scratched up.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Work is tough...

Thanks man. My fastest lap of the day was prolly a full sec and a half over last month. Too bad it was in practice.

Anyway, I'm currently 2nd in points for 600 Superbike w/ the guy in 3rd hot on my heels. If we finish in the same points next month as we did this past weekend, we'll be tied, but the place will prolly go to him as he's placed higher more often (he missed 2 races to my 1).

In Unlimited Superbike (liter bikes, close to "run what ya brung") I'm also 2nd in points. Again w/ 3rd hot on my heels. If we finish next month in the same points, I'll take it by 1 point.

Going to have to get new tires for next month.

Fasttrax at Nelson Ledges. Don't be fooled by my posts. It's very small scale club racing.

A guy asked me Sunday if I'd done any WERA races. My answer was basically "I'd get killed". The fast guys in my org, are mid-pack WERA pace. My pace puts me waaaayyyy back on in a WERA race. Maybe in a couple of years.

Maybe that'd be true, but I'd still rather do the Freddie Spencer school(s)!!!
