Thank you, thank you, thank you, Buck and the rest of the guys!!!!

That was an absolute blast! I don't think I could think of a better way to have more fun. Seriously nothing I ever did as a kid was that much fun. I learned a ton from Buck, Mike, Larry, and Alonzo. I just can't wait for the next track day I can make.

If anyone wants to know what this is like join in on one of Bucks noob days.

Come on with the pics and videos guys, I know Rob's got some.

i had a blast, i got all the way over on my tire and even got the tire to cook a little and look like a real track tire haha i was surprised by some of the people i ride with and then some i havnt, everyone chilled out after the first session... which was a good thing..

because when you start out the day first lap, 3rd turn in the grass.. you know you need to SLOW DOWN! then someone to follow up, SAME TURN on the 3-4th lap.. he needed to SLOW DOWN as well. after that we had a good little run then a few more go down, but thank noone was seriously hurt, minus 04rsv who crashed infront of me.. and i had to avoid him! that was nuts!
