New Launch Ramp

Ok so i built a ramp for the first time, no problems(that i know of ) and everything is swell. I've never actually been off a ramp and am new to the whole BMX world. Got by Bunnyhops down and a few others, but thought a ramp would be fun. Here are some links...

Ok so today i tried to go off it, and long story short, ate my drive way. I think i wasnt going fast enough because my back wheel got caught, so im told. Any tips for riding off it? Its about 2 and a half feet tall. Help will be appriciated.
