Level 4 Ridesmart Spot up for grabs. 9/5 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

Hey everybody,
I have a level 4 spot for the Sept. 5 Ridesmart @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) up for grabs since I won't be able to ride because of the little incident I had Monday.

I have no idea what plastics I had... I picked them up from Patrick from some spares he got with a race bike. They did not like the crash at all... you can see the aftermath in Carbon's pics.

You don't have to have a license to be in this group. It's like the A group w/STD.. oops I mean LSTD.

:nono: .... You can't move up to 3. If you're in 2 you can only move up to 4 cuz 3 is the Ty Howard class which is xtra $$ if u wanna take.

I think when you're close to breaking the 2 minute mark (maybe 2:01, 2:02) I'd say give it a shot right:
just an opinion

Your speed is not the biggest factor when riding with the race group. Being a predictable rider is.
