Having fun on the 250 LV2

looks like Texas World Speedway will be closing down at the end of this season and a subdivision with a school and shopping mall is going to be replacing it but until then we ride as much as we can... I'm going to miss this old fella... bumpy and cracks full of fillers everywhere, completely falling apart but still one of my favorite tracks here in Texas.
It was only Myla, Logan, Andrew and I riding minis on LV2 this day the fun started on the second lap.

Race line vs ride smart line. That line is almost as controversial as "what type of oil do you use"

I like to take that as a late apex and hold it tight at the end, setting up for T11, I tend to have a better drive out this way

I worked with Steve and he talked about taking that wider line for more drive at the exit. I tried it and liked it. The problem was, every class session, Quan and KB kept scolding us for doing that.
