My CCS review/thanx thread.

As far as thanks, I have sooooo many people to thank(I love this community)

Tony, for getting my bike not only painted in time, but saftey wire for tech, for bringing my bike down, for giving me great tips on track, and for flat out being a great friend.

Buck, for encouraging me to just get on the grid, and for helping me pick the races I was in.

Brandon and Patrick with Motorcycles Unlimited for all the go fast , look good parts and Brandon for saving the day helping me put on my sliders sunday!

Chris Bankston and Texas Yamaha GC for all the support and help with my bike.

Terry for giving me someone to run with in my second race lol

Jimmy, for all the knick nack tape and tools you let me borrow to get my bike ready.

Derek and Jason for the encouragement.

John for the stones, and for helping me with tire pressures etc, this guy goes way out of his way for his customers.

If I forgot anyone, ill post back up, thanx again guys.

Now for the review.


Man, WHAT A BLAST I HAD!!!!

I accomplished all of my goals this weekend.

1. Get my license
2. Get down to 1:55's
3. Make it to the grid
4. Not wreck
5. Not come in last place
6. Have fun!


The first race was fun, and wore me out....but the second.....wow what a blast that was....

I gridded last in both of my races, so I was chasing everyone all day(which I think made me faster)

In the last race, I ended up batteling back and forth for 4th place with terry from texas yamaha. And we ended up crossing the finishline milliseconds of each other.... he got 4th and I got 5th lol that was such a high.


I had a great weekend thanx in part of A LOT of people. Can't wait for the next one.
