It's a flat tracking school. Supposed to be REALLY good, Honda Riding Club members get a discount. Couple people from the board have been there.

And unless I land a job in the next week and they allow me to take that time off, I won't be going.

I went last April and had a total blast (well, up to the point where I twisted my knee and ended up missing RA).

Chris Carr is a part owner and guest instructor. If you go, be prepared to get muddy!

Out of town on business.

Tell the boys I say hi and I'll come back if they stop calling me a rereretread!

BTW, I don't think Freddie ever guest instructed there. Wink, I've done both. The differences between the 2 schools are so great that they don't cancel each other out. $$$ for Mr. Spencer! Danny is a bargin.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I went last year, and what I learned has saved my butt a couple of times.

Don't miss it!

sorry to hear you can't make it, had fun last time. .. reretread huh... I'll let em know.

yeah looking again i read that wrong.. I mighta belonged in the "official drunk thread" last night instead of posting replies

quote from the old ad I was looking at
What is American Supercamp?

Motorcycle riders and racers looking for instruction to improve their riding typically go to one of the various school programs specifically designed for honing their skills in each aspect of the sport. Motocross riders look to former top riders like Gary Bailey, Tony DiStefano, Donnie Hansen and the like, road racers can choose from tutors like Freddie Spencer, Jason Pridmore, Keith Code, and others, and there are schools for dirt track, trials, drag racing, and additional specialties.



American Supercamp is a little different. Founded by former AMA National 250cc Grand Prix race-winner and lifetime dirt track competitor Danny Walker in 1992, Supercamp puts students aboard tiny Honda XR100s on a variety of flat dirt layouts, attempting to refine the basics of machine control and traction management. Mastering the art of sliding the small 6-horsepower machines on a low-traction surface translates immediately and directly into more controlled riding on full-size machines, be it aboard a street bike, a road racer, or a dirt tracker. Students leave the program more confident in their ability to control their motorcycle in any situation.

Classes are held across the U.S., and students may opt for the traditional two-day camp, or may choose to participate in a four-day program.

Additional instructors include 1999 AMA Grand National Dirt Track Champion Chris Carr and fellow AMA dirt track star Will Davis. Guest instructors may also attend, including AMA 600cc SuperSport Champion Nicky Hayden and series runner-up Tommy Hayden, Team Yoshimura's Aaron Yates, factory Harley-Davidson road racing pilot and former World Superbike Champion Scott Russell, along with a host of other top riders from both dirt track and road racing disciplines. Riders who have appeared in past camps include Ben and Eric Bostrom, Brett Landes, Rich Oliver, and Pascal Picotte.

It was that or rereretard. They mumbled a lot at me after a while.
