If you want to switch to "A" you can. "A" group is more like "B" group on race weekends. Good riders with good track etiquette, but the pace is way off.

You want me to bring my GSXR600 for you to ride so it evens things out against the ZX10? I wouldn't want you to have an unfair advantage with that extra 75cc's- don't want to make the Kow look too bad...

man when i used to try to email wade or jeff i can never get ahold of those guys...... i need to ask macman questions. i never got my official race licence a few years ago do to engine problems my first season. i have completed 6 races at oak hill but need 1 day of corner work still. i need to ask the right person what to do.

if James can't skip over to A group in the AM....i know my lines pretty well at TWS (Texas World Speedway), you can follow me if you are in A group. i won't be pushing 100% out there this time, so showing you some lines out there is no problemo to me.

Or if you are in B group, or A group, and don't want the option listed above....you could always sit out the first session, and ride the round robin with C class. i'm pretty sure LSTD won't contest that decision.

sounds like a plan. TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a fun track. even riding under 100% of your ability, you will still have a blast. look forward to seeing you out there john. i'll be there by 7am

Bike(s):
07 600rr track









the reason why the first A session is relaxed is cause the track is "green" in the morning. Also the riders r getting loose and warming up for later when the track is hotter and everything feels comfortable. i always wait till the 3rd session to go all out. the first session im usually still trying to wake up and stretching. the 2nd im going fast but usually around and just having fun. but by the 3rd im ready to pick a fight.

i haven't ran a lonestar trackday event in 2 1/2 years or so. i need to get reacquainted with alot of people out there. Im so excited to try these new tires i put on the other day. Some friends of mine are going to come out and help me dial in the bike. So i will be mostly testing and playin around. Im selling the bike i am riding to get new machinery so i can be in contingency for next year. if anybody see's me runnin an is interested give me a holla i will have the title in hand. x supersport AMA bike nothing stock on this machine. o..... new engine cause Motorcycles Unlimited destroyed the 15k trick one. Mistakes happen...

My apologies if I missed an e-mail. I answer everything I see. Maybe my spam filter got it??

Anyway, for good measure, consult Nancy Selleck with CMRA: nancy@cmraracing.com

Tom... you da man for answering doing the Q&A. We love Tom.
