it was a little tough that far back but, i passed most people before T1, then out of T4 i got a few more, i think 1 out of three, i must have been following Vfracer thru 3 b/c i went on the outside as well, then i made a close close pass in 9 between one of the girls and the cones on the outside.

the OTE riders getting back on really scared me, it was def. HAIRY getting thru that mess, all i seen was dust and lots of braking action.

It did feel good taking the win.
You were haulin'. I always time a couple of the laps of the mach races to see roughly where I'd be if I ever got the itch... 1:57-58s by hand...

BTW it it "mach" or "mock"

Welcome, I don't know about the others but it was my pleasure. Teresa and I worked the horseshoe (carousel) in the am and then she worked it alone in the pm. It sure takes some getting used to all the scraping noise.

We had some crashes there in the morning and a Yamaha that got completely totalled beyond recognition between T10 and T11 right before breaking for lunch with group B. I had to drive over and ask him to move the bike out of the crashzone. The bike was in pieces by the time we were done, they had the checker flag out. Of course it wasn't nice to see my boyfriend standing on the side of the track over his CBR when coming back to the corner . At least he is okay and the damage is fairly minor.

I saw the afternoon went much better.

Everyone looked great out there!

Me and the wife had a fun day. I did mangae to get some video footage while on the bike, I got some good shots of getting passed by everybody. Got SwiftE and Carbon passing my in T1.

Good thing for the lunch riders meeting. Both my front right caliper bolts had backed about 3/4 of the way out. The caliper was barely hanging on there, if it wasn't for that meeting I would have never checked it.

Great Weather, Great folks to be around, Great instruction
I ended up scrapping both pucks numerous times and felt very very smooth on the bike.

I'm still stoked!!!!
