Daytona thanks

First off I would like to thank my sponsers and the people who helped get me there.

AAA Lift Trucks
Texas Track Days
Buck Beasley (for making me body work in his driveway)
Bill Hendrix
Global Motorsports
Sum Of All Parts
Bill Guthry (for trailer)
Traxion Dynamics
Sunny at GP
House Of Pain
Dustin Johnson (for losing my only set of tire warmers)
Bubba Shobert
My wife and the Cycle Gear pit crew

That was about the roughest weekend I have ever had. Getting use to new Dunlop tires,bike and track configuration. The new bike 09 Kawi zx6 worked very well, as well as the dunlop tires amazing traction and predictability over the whole race. And yes the pace car I mean safety car is a bad idea it cost me almost two laps on my pit stop but AMA insists on running it the rest of the season. We should have everything dialed in by Fontana. See ya there.

I was looking for you every scroll-by of the standings on top of the TV screen. And I'm looking forward to checking your status the rest of the races. Good luck!

Good going Larry, sorry about the tire warmers. The lifeflight nurses didn't think the warmers were a great idea to keep the air off my legs, I begged to differ. Congrats on completing the 200 man, that's a feat not many of us will ever complete. Can you autograph my helmet?

Glad it all worked out for you Larry. I guess you knew Syfan was behind the wheel of the pace car, so that might explain your loss of laps. I know you were always one of his favs. Glad the bodywork worked ouot for you and stayed on better than stuff Eslick had for his Buell. You and Ty make us all proud, the 200 is something that very few can or will do in their lifetime. You will still be my go fast guru despite the fact you got beat by a girl........ouch.

Congrats Larry on finishing the 200.

I'll have to admit, I felt a little proud knowing someone out there turning laps at one of our country's greatest races.

Sorry to hear/see about the pace car issues. Could have been worse though, you could have been Josh Hayes and lost like a 6 second gap in the lead.......only to wreck after the restart.

Good luck at the next race! Keep us all posted on what happens before, during and after!
