The RA RA TOUR 2006 is officially underway. America's two fastest tracks, Road Atlanta and Road America, back to back.
On board is Ron Hix, Brian Wink, Dave Jelinek, Brent Schrader and Barry Dolan.
We left Thursday afternoon on our way to Indy. We got to Barry's house in Indy about 1 AM and then watched the Formula Extreme and Superstock AMA races at Infineon from last weekend. We all crashed about 2:30 AM or so and got up about 5:30 AM and got on the road toward Atlanta.
On the way toward Louisville, Barry's bike took a dive in the trailer and broke his rear set tabs clean off the frame. So we stopped over in Nashville and had his rear set mounts rewelded onto his frame.
Since this put us running a few hours behind, we were not able to hang out with the pink elephant and the world's tallest midget.
Drats! Foiled again!
We are currently on I-85 just north of Atlanta, less than 30 minutes from the track.
Grilling and chillin is the plan as soon as we hit the track tonight. Proper preparation for tomorrow's track day is essential after all.
