CMRA TWS (Texas World Speedway) Mock Race 03/22/13

Mongo and I decided to put together a team to run the 8 hour endurance on Saturday, so we headed out on Friday with another teammate to take the CMRA license school with LSTD. This is the video of the mock race.

Blake Young turns up around the 5:45 mark in the video, learning the track in advance of Saturday's race. I can only assume Schwantz already knew his way around TWS (Texas World Speedway)...

That looks like fun! I did my mock race with LSTD at the last TWS (Texas World Speedway) race of last year. It was wild. I got a terrible start and was picking off people slowly but surely. I shut the door on an instructor trying to pass me on the inside of the gravity bowl. I finally caught up and passed the guy in first in T3, only to be passed back in T7. Next lap was the final lap. I passed him again in T3 and held a tight line in T7 so he couldn't pass me again. I finish in first place, looked behind me and I had gapped the guy in second bike 15 bike lengths or so. I found out later that the guy in second crashed on that last lap and it was the guy that was in 3rd that was so far behind me.

We were out there running 54s duriing the mock race...lmao.

That's awesome that you got to do your mock race with Blake Young!

Great footage. Not many guys get to say that they were in a race (even a "mock" race) with Blake Young, and you even have the footage to back it up.

Great job to you and your teammates this weekend!

It's not that hard to have this kind of fun out there. In one weekend you and your buddies can get your licenses and get some endurance racing in!

you can see in the video where I briefly contemplated running back up the inside, but I thought better of it since the whole purpose was to finish without crashing.

(besides, you would have just repassed me a little further down the track...)
