Congratulations, Wink.

Didn't you just start doing trackdays last year?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Dude, didn't realize it was your first time; you seemed like you'd been doing it for ages. You OWNED it, man, absolutely owned it. Nice job. See you guys in September.

I didn't realize that was your first event as CR. I ran 5 session yesterday and was wiped (ran on 3 hours of sleep) Don't know how you run all those sessions.

Hey guys, thanks for the atta-boys. Yeah, that was my third weekend CRing (as a try-out). I did Putnam, Mid America Motorplex, and this weekend at Blackhawk.

It is easy to CR when you are working with people who are looking to learn. We have a super group of people that come to the NESBA events, that are always looking to improve both their skills and the safety for everyone on the track. It is great to get a chance to participate in someone's "first knee" or improving their laptimes, lines or body positioning. Perhaps it is the bump or that breaking a lap time barrier, no matter how you look at it, it is a blast seeing how excited people get. It is like the first time for me each time someone hits a new milestone.

Anyhow, thanks for you guys and to the CRs. It is a great group of people to be associated with!

Congratulations Wink! I thought you were doing it for years. Your tips on Sunday were greatly appreciated.

I was sweating my ass off in black leathers. Was it me you were looking for? If so, let me know if I did anything wrong.

Thanks and congratulations again.

Black leathers guy was found. No worries folks, it wasn't any of you. Good news bad news about being a CR.

Good news - you get to help people
Bad news - there are rules to enforce

BTW guys, black leather is HOT in the sun. This isn't a winter sport you guys are involved in (just a thought for future purchases)

Don't worry Ron. You'll get there. Your riding/coaching is okay, you just need to work on that terrible attitude of yours!
