Man in hindsight I wish I would have used my lap timer. It was my first track day but it would be nice to know for next time to make sure I am improving.

I'd only recommend using a laptimer if you already have really consistent lines and you are using it to how different things affect your performance overall. Its useless to just go faster if you don't know how or why you did. I worked on the launch and bust stop all morning and that was it. I need to improve my upper body position before trying to go any quicker. So that was the afternoon.

It was a little warm, but the track felt great.

I was able to squeeze in some hot laps and knock a few seconds off my personal best time on the R1, but with shagged out tires, I was afraid to push it.

I worked with some students that absorbed and followed my advice and made some great improvements over the day. Good job guys. It was fun working with each of you.

Next event is Monday, Sept 7 (Labor Day) at Texas World Speedway. Can't wait to do it all again.

I really hope I can make TWS (Texas World Speedway). This was a great weekend for me. Not so much for my pit-pals... One dislocated shoulder and one collarbone. I know I set a new best, I just don't know by how much. Maybe I should get one of those lap timers or maybe just a transponder.
