Hello to all.

Yes, the trackday was awesome and we couldnt ask for better weather. There were a couple of fender benders in T10 *cough* Tony *cough*

I took some pics with James camera and hopefully he will post up all the pics later on and Eric had a camera as well.

POST THE PICS FELLAS.

The curse was broken thanks to the Lord and I didn't crash at the that evil track so I guess I won't call it evil anymore. Had a good time riding with my friends and my new suspension helped tremendously throught the rougher section of the track(thanks Doug).

Only bad thing of the day was some idiot tried to pass me sooo close we touched pegs. I can't believe people make such dumb passes on a trackday. I mean there is just no reason for it. I would have punched him(unless he was bigger than me) later in the paddock if I would have remembered his bike but I was to freaked when it happened to remember and just glad we didn't lock bikes and have a horrible crash.

Two trackdays in one weekend. I am a sore puppy today.

Thanks. Did my form look alright? Trying to work on my body/head position which was easier because the turns are so long. Also have you heard how the dude is that went down fast on Turn 1?

If you are talking about the one that got hospitalized he is fine i think, he was wearing a neck thing, don't know the name but he was there at the end of the day.

if you are talking about the guy in the A group that went down in T1.....i was right behind him for a whole lap.....he started pulling away from me in the straightaway.....i knew before he went off that he was carrying way too much speed to make the dip....he just went straight off. i was going about 120-130 coming in, so he must've been going about 140-150 when he went off. people said he was okay, just wanted to get checked out was all.

I saw the crash too it was RADICAL. I mean he was hauling in the grass and maybe could have slowed down but he went through that ditch and water flew up about 12 feet. Then him and the bike went tumbling and tumbling. Glad to hear he is alright.

Maybe the ditch should be the next project for TWS (Texas World Speedway) to improve.

The photo guy got some good pics of his bike up in the air. He said he was a little sore. Nothing broke but a little rash on his palm through the Joe rocket glove.

I dont think so. But the guy that wrecked bought one from him. It was crazy. You could see the bike standing up about 2 feet in the air and the back wheel was about 8 feet up. You could also see the mud and that was flying with it. Pretty cool pic. Id like to see more of the pics too

Yea, I told Mike Sutton I saw it and watched it all and he said I should be keeping my eyes on the track but man, I couldn't help it was just WILD looking.
