717 MSRH Thanks!

I wasn't going to do these little thank you threads this year but with more support for me in 2012 than any previous year, it's only right that I acknowledge the folks that have watched me grow in the sport the last few years and stepped up this year to help. I really need to do my part to to make sure they get the "press" they deserve.

Unfortunately I only finished 1 of 3 sprint races this weekend. I've been on a mission the last couple of years to try to get to the front. I'm getting pretty close, still a ways to go, but I'm damned determined to try my best and I dont care how many times I throw it down in the process. I'm sure that'll change after a few more times and some more money, though. I've still got a lot to learn about patience and letting races come to me. I got over anxious in my 2nd race and it cost me. Then I had a mechanical in my 3rd race a result of the first fall down. I did manage to squeeze out the last spot on the box for race 7 which makes 3 consecutive podiums for me dating back to round 8 of 2011.

I wanted to thank the CMRA, staff and corner workers for always putting on a rock solid event and all my competitors. Without y'all, there is no race. Thanks Dave Wonders and Ridesmart Motorcycle School and all the students for giving me a chance in the very beginning. I've been fiercely loyal to that organization since day one. I'm ecstatic to be on Dunlop Tires and working with Allan Campbell at Whoopie's Cycles this year. I haven't moved off these tires in 3 years, they are just that good in my opinion. Thanks 212 Decals, House of Paint, The Big Fella at Raceworx, Motorcycles Unlimited, EBC Brakes, Agg Racing, Fren Tubo, Go Fast - Don't Crash, Arlen Ness, Motul, K&N Filters, Bazzaz, Vortex and all them Wiffo boys. And of course, my Lisa.

See you guys at TWS (Texas World Speedway).
