Not trying to bring this up again but you're right some really good riders. Just want to make sure there is good instruction going on that's all. Only Racin instruction qualifies as able to teach without the DPS.

Dumb anyways, but I just think it's important we have good solid information being shared to "improve" our riders in our community. Just about being responsible thats all...at least trying to do what has to be done. The states involvement doesn't mean the teaching going on isn't credible.

I'm not sure what their reasoning was, but if someone goes down after a call is made, or is having mechanical issues, a new call is made to reflect that. Better to be frustrated geared up still in the pits than geared up waiting in the sun to go out on the track

man i reviewed my video, my lines im happy with but of course they can always be better. there was a few places where i wasnt downshifting enough to squeeze the power out of that 600, need to brake later for turn one and fix my line there a wee bit. but i think its possible for me to break under 2:00 later this year or at least a 2:05 my next day there at TWS (Texas World Speedway) if i really start working on a few things.

If you think you can cut 2:05s, you should be in the top group
