Rain riding tips for the CMRA racers this weekend...

1. pray to you and your bike stay in one piece and on the track

2. get some booty before the races.....just in case your junk tucks and hides and you can't find it no more.

3. if you go off the track, think happy thoughts like the booty you just got the other night, and pray to you will make it.

seriously.....if you are planning to race in the rain, i'll pray for you as well as everyone else. let's all come back from the races the same way we got there.

Good luck to everyone out there this weekend, get your rain tires ready, and be safe. See all of you ladies this weekend for round 3 of carnage!

If the track is starting to dry out while you're on rains during a race... Take your normal lines in the turns, and aim for the puddles on the straights. Gradually find out how far you can lean the bike in the first lap or two. Be smooth with everything... Brakes, gas, movement on the bike, etc.

1. Brake Hard while bike is upright.
2. Don't be afraid to cross puddles @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) - ECR not soo much :P.
3. Stay on the bike, no monkey hanging on the bike.
4. Again - no excessive lean angles. Just keep majority of your mass dead centered.
5. Run rains if you got the $$ - it would suck if it dries off quick though.

Best of luck to all
