Are you ready?
This is going to hurt!


And of course, 4 weeks and two days until the second race...

I just found out there's a race around these parts in two weeks! I'm obviously not in ideal race shape right now but what I need as a Cat 5 is pack practice, anyway, so I'm gonna treat it as a learning opportunity.

I'll only tell you if you promise to do the 3/4 race instead of the 4/5 race

But seriously, here's the link to the race flyer:

I'll be there for sure man, both race dates. Look for the guy in the avatar

As for which race I'll run, I'll probably do both the B and the C races. I'm not too proud to get upgrade points from a 4/5 race

EDIT: I just renewed my license, so I'm comitted now. I was going to put it off until later this year.

Fast, banked turns. I hope to race 3-4 times on speedways this year.

not sure yet for me...the schedule isn't posted. usually around the beginning of march the spring series starts. i might try some races in new jersey's branchbrook park early in the season as well. but, still, i have about 6 weeks before any races start.

hardly even need to start training....

7 day for the first nor-cal crit that actually counts for points. It sucks that the early bird "tranning" races don't count, all the risk(or more) and none of the reward
