Is it because you're going to Florida, and racing against all those far superior Florida riders?

Moving to Florida doesn't make you any faster. True story.

Not according to CCS region racers, and the guy that runs the region. He went on and on over the PA at Daytona about how awesome they are, and then posted on the CCS forum that the far superior Florida region racers dominated.

So Dave, don't tell them that. They might kick you out.

I know right? When I pointed that out I got a tiny violin and was told the same riders would win anywhere. Well, sure, some of them maybe. They have some fast riders, but it was the copping of attitude about it that I found annoying and off-putting. I've just never experienced that before in any of the other CCS regions. (And we pretty much went to all of them this year.)

If I were a snarky person, I'd post a thread next year declaring "Midwest riders dominate at Road America! (again)"

with the exception of a select few they are not so hard on the brakes in the southern regions.
