Team Texas Trackdays thanks...

started out a decent weekend with no rain in the endurance race. Alonzo MURDERED the start and held 6th overall by the time his stint was over. With our LONG fuel stops, we kept moving down the line. now we know where we need to work at doing...finding a way to eliminate times in the pits. we're hoping for even better results for the next round at Hallet. team texas trackdays ended up getting 2nd in class and 10th overall. we are happy with our results for our first endurance race.

Team Texas Trackdays thanks...

we wouldn't have made the endurance without the help of meril and manu. those guys went the extra mile for us by getting involved in racing and showing support to us. we are greatful for the opportunity they have given us to represent Texas Trackdays!

also thanks to Motorcycles Unlimited. Ask any of my team mates how they liked the way the GSXR SiXxer was handling and they'll tell ya it feels even better than their own bikes. Patrick and Brandon installed, setup and tuned my AK20's fork cartridges and my penske triple clicker shock....and let me tell ya....i wouldn't have it any other way. for any suspension needs, they are the go to guys. thanks guys.

John Hutchinson/Raymond at South Central Race Center and Pirelli tires....the sticky icky's are exactly what the doctor ordered. kept our bike on the track the whole way through. kept us updated on weather, tire changing, pressures.....John's the man with numero uno support.

Sunny Motorsports for the spares just in case something would've happened.

Mr Whoopie, Andy, Irish, and John Leger for helping out in the pits.

My teammates...Alonzo, Fabian, Toni, and Derek. Great job guys, it was the first race, surely not the last...let's keep it up.

The key is to not only get fuel in the bike quickly, but to not get fuel all over the ground. I dunno what strange vibe was in the air at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this round, but people were spilling fuel during pit stops like it still cost 29 cents per gallon.

I can't wait for the next round at Hallett! Tony's right that we learned a lot, including where we can make up time off of the track. Guess that's all part of the process.

Again, thanks to Meril and Manu for the support with this endurance effort. You guys are top notch.

My teammates, Tony, Alonzo, Toni Bui, and Fabian S, I'm glad to be involved in this with you guys. It was a fun time all around with a great group of guys.

Also thanks to the endurance team pitted beside us. I don't remember the team name, but they were always willing to lend a hand (and fire extinguisher) whenever we needed, and they received the same support from us.

Irish, Andy B, Dustin J and Jon L thanks for the willingness to jump in and help when we needed. It was greatly appreciated.

If I forgot anyone, I'm sorry. I haven't had much sleep this weekend. But it was worth it.

I had a blast racing endurance! Thanks to Andy, Allan, Irish, Dustin, John and the team next to us for all the help in the pit this weekend. Thanks to Gabe, this guy really loves racing, I've never seen anyone who was more enthusiastic about endurance racing! Looking forward to seeing you guys at hallet.

Big Thanks to my team mates Tony, Derek, Fabian and Uncle Tony for making this a weekend to remember...

A special thanks to Meril, Manu and Texas Trackdays for making this weekend possible.

Congrats to all of the other teams involved...
