It was a great day! The weather could not have been better since the forecast was 60% chance of rain. Was partly cloudy and rain held off until almost everyone was packed and loaded to leave.

Level 1 had no crashes, right? Can anyone from level 1 confirm?

Level 2 had a couple red flags but only so the crash truck get the bikes. I think I waited in hot-pit once for only 3-4 mins until we restarted. The other happend at the end f a session so they just ended it.

Level 3/4 had a couple of red flags as well but the ambulance only left once. That crash was in T2 so he was probably moving when he went down.

Level 1 had a guy on a blue SV 650 run off and go down in T10(Horsehoe) where I was CW. The guy was ok, but had to have the crash truck come get his bike. Not sure of any other crashes-but they had a lot of minor run offs. T10 was a pretty active spot all day. Candie CW there in the morning and had like 4 crashes/run offs. I worked the afternoon and had 2 crashes and 1 run off and about a dozen near misses! It was a good day though. The rain stayed away until time to go home. I had a couple of good sessions in the morning and Candie had a couple in the PM. Good to see some familiar faces at the track....Tony, Derek, Alan, Fabian, John, and others. Can't wait to go back on the 10th!

I had a blast working T10! And like Tim said it was VERY active! I think the most crashes were in Level 3&4. 3 of the crashes in the morning in T10 were all level 3&4. And the first one was in the first session! Next time I CW T10 I will make sure that I wear my tennis shoes. Running through the grass and dirt in flip flops wasn't easy or smart!

I had a great time! I am excited to ride with all the MH folks on the 10th!

Me too, but I want to work a non-active corner so I can take some pics

Is there such a thing as a non-active corner when we talk about MC's and a closed circuit track

Then you need to work 7. I worked it last time and saw no action! Other than Jimmy and Irish's sparkies!!

It was a little unsettling to see so many folks go down right in for of me! Everytime I could hear myself praying that they would be ok!! I would be saying please get up, please get up! And everyone that crashes got up and walked away! That is what I love about the track, even if you do go down ther the chances of you getting up and riding off is great!

It was great to see the MH'ers out there..we had a good 8-10 MH peeps.

The TSBA was in full force aswell, 8-10 from SA, Austin and Houston, you missed out on probably the best track day all year long @ Texas World Speedway (weather wise) Patricia.

The weather could'nt have been better, it started raining after 5:30 PM - when everybody was busy packing up or already driving home.

We did have one rider go down in Level 1 - it was a TSBA member, Don in T10.

Candie & Tim, you guys did an extremly good job in T10 (Candie, I was the instructor on the yellow R6 who came running to you to tell you not to call the tow truck and waste time as we were just gonna ride that GSXR1000 off - the guy was okay. Good job on the coordinating).

It was nice to see you to Derek (after a long time), nice work in T4.

Danny, if you want less action T7 is probably the way to go - but for pictures the horse shoe will always remain the favorite.

See you all out on the 10/26 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) & maybe Cresson (big maybe).

It was me going down in the first session. I ran wide and hit the crease in the middle of the track which was still kinda damp and there I went. Did you see me doing a double tumbles then popped right up on my feet?
