LSTD Endurance Thanks

We went to Hallett and missed the weekend trackday at TWS (Texas World Speedway). But we still had a good time even without the rest od the LSTD crew. We ended up 4th overall and 2nd in class. Certainly not bad but we really like to win But the CMRA put on another great event that Shogun was so gracious to sponsor.

Mac, Jeff and Wade were a huge help even though the werent there.
John Hutchinson of SCRC had the best customer service of any tire vender....ever. The Bridgestone 002s rocked and kept us stuck to the track.
Motorcycles Unlimited was there and continued their support. They have the Motul to keep the bikes running for hours of race use/abuse at a time without any trouble. And the they keep the EBC pads in stock to keep our bikes stopping great.
Supersprox for the awesome sprockets that are light weight AND extremely durable. This is one thing that some teams have over looked in the past and it did bite them.
Leo Vince Exhaust, Team Mancuso Powersports, One Second Faster, Pipercross airfilters, ATSracing.net, Hyperpro dampers, LP, Tom Anderson of TSP paint and body, Cycleskinz bodywork, Jim Cmabora of Raceworx, Adam Khan and all of the ladies that help out every weekend.

Last race we lost 7 minutes in the pits when we had to make an unscheduled pit stop. It was because the bike was backfiring and popping on decel and we blew out our exhaust can. We couldnt figure out ow to eliminate the problem and ended up taking the bike to Steve Upchurch. He fixed it and the bike didnt pop a single time during the whole 5hr race.

Gabe and Crew,

Great Job.

How come you didn't mention your tire wall dive in Sundays sprints???
I'd give it a 9.5.

mac, thank you so much for everything. lstd mafia lives on!
patrick and john and everyone, thank you so much.....all of ya'll.
we're trying to make ya proud.
mystie said gabe was more excited about surviving hallett's tires than about getting 4th in css.
he was actually doing some suspension testing for dirt use.
it's all part of our finely-honed plan to steal the title, remember?
this week we're takin' our team bike to the dirt track for some corner-exit practice.
john, got any slicks we can cut?
soft, please.
gabriel, you're up again....................

ya'll motohouston peeples come hang out with us at Gransport at the end of this month.
we'll see that you have lots and lots of fun.
