sounds like a lot of people will be going. this will be my first track day, if i can find my gear in time.

is it a good idea for a first track day? will there be different level runs? or everybody and anybody on the track?

There is a Novice class. That would be the place to be no matter how good a street rider you are. First time on a track is as much about learning the track as it is practicing your skills. Once you know where the track goes you can conentrate more on your technique. That's where I'll be.

Have Fun!

(Excuse the language.)

TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a total mind **** the first time you see it and get out on it. Very intimidating but it is a fast fun track that flows well once you get in the groove.

What???
You and micho are related???

I was at TWS (Texas World Speedway) when your uncle crashed.
Before the crash, I chatted with him a little bit.
He seemed like a nice person.

Hope to see you ride that trackday. By the way, it's not "crash king", it's level 5. A skill level that requires knee, toes, back, head and whatever part of the body you could drag.
