MSRC Thanks!!!

Round 8 (10 scheduled) found another great weekend of racing. We rode fridays trackday with LSTD (job well done guys) allowing us some much needed seat time running the 1.7 in the counter clockwise direction. By the time sunday rolled around I was pretty confident we would be battling up front for a podium.

Rule number one...don't look back! I know better than this but what did i do? I looked back! I knew Blake would be on my just didn't realize that split second of losing concentration would cost me. I looked back in the worst place possible...coming into Big Bend where Blake had been stonger than me on the brakes all weekend. I tried to regain the lead with two laps to go but couldn't find anywhere to open the door. The race was decided by
.200 of a second. Close and entertaining to say the least.

B superstock - 2nd place

Race number two saw me making a handful of mistakes. I managed a good start and opened up a small gap only to hit a false nuetral coming into the rattle snake. Blake went around and led for a lap. I was able to get back by him in the back section and run up front for a few laps. We came into some traffic right before wagons wheel. I made an attempt to pass on the outside of another rider and ended up running wide allowing blake to pass on the inside. I tried to make up some ground and found myself off the race line coming down the back straight before little bend and hit a bump at about 100mph causing a nasty tank slapper which forced me off track. I managed to keep it upright and finish the race. All things considered I'm happy with the 9th place finish.

C superstock - 9th

This will be a weekend to remember. Huge Thanks to Derek Steptoe and Jason Hanning for busting their all weekend long. These two make the weekend happen...

Everyone we pitted with...good times!!!

I would like to thank all of my sposnors for making this weekend possible...
