In! Undecided on the classes. Lightweight for me. I might try some middleweight classes early on in the season at BHF.

I really want to but I just realized it's Easter weekend and my family is pissed... Hopefully I can make it. I'll probably ride all the MW classes and maybe a HW or 2 depending on how the schedule works.

It is a 2 day event right? I'm used to blackhawks 1 day event.

it's almost that time already?!? unfortunately, things didn't work out at the office like I hoped, so I might have to wait until CCS comes to blackhawk as my "season opener".

Flying. Boooooring..... Take off. Burn fuel. Land.
Spend lots of money in between.

get to see my kids more often, see the country, grow business opportunities...

vs racing

Spend lots of money every other weekend. Tally up all the travel running around, parts, tuning, power adders, tires, tire money, ... at the end of the season what do you have?


memories. and wood, and an empty checking account. To the tune of it's at least $12,000 a year.


now go back out and do it another year.

I did that two years ft and that was enough. You see where the sport is heading, it's fun, but you'll never be a real pro racer, least i won't. most of them started on bikes when they started walking.


The competition and rush are 100 times greater than a track day but my heart flutters around little single engine planes. Who knows, maybe this is just a fad, but for now it's one I'm excited about pursuing.

We are going to have rules...
1. The horn will be disconnected for the time of the trip...
2. We will not take any mexican food that doesn't belong to us...
3. ... don't remember what else he did after tha banquet...

I forgave him as well, he said he is going to show me the fast lane...

For track days in the past, the gate closes at a certain time. If your not in before, you sit outside. I don't know how it's going to work for this event. If you find out, post up!

I'm leaving hopefully between 8 and 10 am.

Someone posted on the CCS forum that we're not allowed in until Friday @ 7:00am. I tried callin to verify but they're closed already. That kinda sucks.
