Riding out of Belton

My buddy quit riding track days last year and I've been going it alone. Anybody riding out of the Killeen,Temple area? Taking a new bike this year and another year older, many hands make quick work.
Thanks

Group "A" is the fastest group, group C is the slowest.

Yeah, me too. Gonna take the Ducati to the track this year so 1st track day, new bike, Cresson's big track on a cool day, I will be taking it pretty easy trying to sort things out. I'm a level 2 mid to front rider. I have ridden L3 before but find it to be boring, I don't get lapped but I do end up riding by myself waiting to get lapped. Run around 2:00 to 2:10 at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

I'll be getting there late Friday night. If the quote is in reference to me then that tire was demolished by the previous owner of the bike. Just the best picture of the bike I had on hand.

This is what my front tire looks like

And my rear

I'll also be next to a white aprilia rsv4 #85(I think it's 85 at least).

It was a pretty awesome day after the first session. I had a ton of fun and didn't feel like I held up B group too much.
