Being the first race of the season, you grid in the order you sign up. I wasn't sure if I was going to race Sunday, but decided to Saturday. So I show up Sunday and signed up for a couple of races. And I was on the last row of the first race in the second wave. The experts blast off then we are turned loose. And it was on. I managed to pass probably three riders before the three leaders blew by me! And when I saw blew by me I mean BLEW by me. I have a scratch on my front faring from a clutch lever. Second race was Formula 40 heavyweights. I started 9th row center. Again I passed maybe four riders this time. But, I didn't get lapped! Don't think that just because these guys are over 40 they are not fast, because they are. I think my best time in the Formula 40 was 1:36.016 or the like. It was a fun day all around. I look forward to seeing the group again.

I was passed by Ty Howard on my first race at MSRH.

He finished his 6th lap as I finished my 5th lap....

It was an honor to get lapped by him.
