I wasn't sure how it works seeing that is a CMRA event.... I typically run with B group on normal LSTD trackdays so I'll ask one of the instructors which group I need to ride, SBK Bandito thinks I'm ready for A group...but I dunno about that. I got no worries about passing or being passed, I just don't like the idea of being passed more often than being the person that does the passing more often. Actually, the part that scares me the most is rubbing elbows and sharing footpegs

I don't hold a CMRA license so that may restrict what group I can run?:/: I thought Friday was like any other TD that LSTD puts on, but only more fast people practicing for the races on Saturday and Sunday.

You can learn a lot from riding in the puddles and wet track.

The later of the 2...early rise (you aren't gonna be able to sleep anyhow), drink some coffee, set up for the day, make the riders meeting, and then get ready for the best day of your life
Welcome to the track addiction, see ya Saturday...

P.S. Thanks Tom & LSTD crew for offering work for saddle time
