Tell Me About The Street Races In Mich

I think Steve and maybe a few others on here did this event last season - I saw Glenn Posted up about it again this year and asking who might want to run it again

- Is it worth the drive?
- Was it a good track layout?
- Was it all those fast as fuck Superbikers fucks? (even though lil Zac won it)
- Did anyone get laid?

I think Glenn posted about it because the first SBK2 weekend overlaps w/ one of the MI SM street races.

Eddie I raced it last year and actually made the local paper. LOL I will have to dig up the online article. It was a great time. Everyone was very nice and the fans LOOOOVED it. The race we did was right in downtown West Branch and they closed the main streets down and built the track. I had a hard time with it because of all the dirt, most of the pavement was slippery cuz it was covered in some type of dust or dirt tracked on by the dirt section. Fo us roadrace guys it was tough because there was not alot of pavement or flowign corners. It was tight, a 180 turn and 3 90 degree turns. I will definatly be racing both of them this year as long as my schedule permits it. I will have 2 spots open on my trailer so its a first come basis. I have a couple of pics on my FB I will try to post up.

Hmmm, I would like to try this but my experience in the Dirt with Slicks is limited and depending on when I get my last manicure, i would sure hate to fall and fuck up my nails

In order to pimp slap, one must first be a pimp - So in this case, I guess you could try and bitch slap me?

Steve, how much seat time did you get at the street race? practice/qual/main format similar to NWGP or SBK2?

Not a whole lot. I think 1 or 2 10 min pratice sessions. They where pressed for time but I think they will work that out for the next outdoor race. Since it was the first one they had a couple of bugs in the system but overall it went pretty smooth.
