Swerve and I left the south side around 10:30 or 11 on Friday night. He took me to a friends house in the city to get some parts and the I bought a set of Tire Sox for 150 bucks. SCREAMING DEAL MAN
. Thanks for the hook up!
Saturday Morning I was woke up abruptly by the smell of 110 octane and reving motors. I decided I was going to race GTL and Thunderbike.
GTL was a great experience and a long race to say the least. I had 3 off road excursions during the race. The first time I went off the track was in the beginning of turn 6. I was too hot into the corner and just ran rite off the track. I kept it up, lost a few positions but was able to re-join the race. I ended up catching the 2 guys that got by me when I went off in 6 and a few laps later I went off in turn 1. Again I was too hot into the turn. I didn't let out of the gas in 6th gear on the front straight until like 100 feet after the tower. The funny part about was my whole family was at turn 1 and saw it. They said my ass end was sliding out and the front end was hopping something feirce. I rejoined the race and a few laps later I went too hot into turn 7. This was the bad one. I was able to keep it up but I blazed a trail 30 feet back in the tall weeds and swamp. The corner workers couldn't even see me. I was jumping up and down trying to get there attention because I was FUCKING STUCK back there
. The bike still up rite and running, just stuck. I started to smell burning grass from the motor in the weeds. When I went off in 7 all I was thinking at 60 mph going through the weeds was "PLEASE DON'T LET THERE BE WATER, PLEASE DON'T LET THERE BE WATER BACK HERE"
I ended up finishing 14th out of 18 guys, which in my book is damn good for going off the track 3 times in a race and not dumping my bike.
Thunderbike I placed 10th and ran consistant 24's. Fun time on Saturday.
I'll recap on sunday in a little while.
