CCS Thanks

Man, where to start! Now that I'm finally rested back up and able to type I figured I'd hop on here to give me thanks to everyone that helped my out this weekend. First off, a HUGE thanks to both Irish and Jimmy for letting me use their tools at will and never failing to help me when I needed it. To David Roy and the NTSB gang for giving me a set of Dunlop's that I couldn't make spin on Sunday, I've never ridden on such a damned good set of tires. My largest thanks goes out to my teammate Trevor, who even though wasn't racing was in the pits with me making sure I didn't have any problems and my bike was ready for every race (even two I wasn't supposed to be in lol). To Meril and all the guys at Texas Track Days for giving me so much track time lately, I've gained so much speed with just them letting me ride so much and I appreciate that greatly. And Derek for being faster than myself and giving me something to chase after, even though I never really got too close... I'll find you next time buddy! Lastly thanks to all my family and friends who showed up for support, I couldn't do as well as I did without you there keeping my nerves down... overall a great weekend, a 2nd, a 3rd, and two 4th's on my first weekend, I can't really complain! See everyone at the track.
