sturgis race 2013

Took the family to Sturgis for the first Sturgis Supermoto street race.
All in all it was a blast and hope to do it again in the future. The locals loved the event and hope to see it back next year, the track lay out was cool but it was very slippery and sketchy. but i am sure they will make lots of improvements for the next race.
i raced the ProAM National class and did okay i think=)
they made us pull numbers out of the hat for the grid position for the heat race,
i pulled 13 out of 15=) so in the heat race i finished 6.
the second race i was in 5th fighting for 4th with 3 laps to go and lost my back end coming out of the corner=( got back up and tryed to make up spots but slid out again exiting the dirt=) got back up and fought back to 9th. Had a blast and hope to do it again next year but with better results.

I am done racing for the year. My accident on the street 3 weeks ago has put a end in racing for this year but hopefully not next year. I really messed myself up.
