Grasshopper won all his races (OK, not all)!

In his second (and final) race weekend of the year, Grasshopper won Lightweight GT, Lightweight Super Sport, and Thunderbike. It wasn't even close...so yeah, white plates for next year!

Oh, and he got SPANKED at the GT unlimited race! Nick decided to go out and race the liter bikes and admitted to getting a bit too confident out there. We were laughing as they'd BLOW PAST HIM with all that horsepower while the little SV went GRUNT GRUNT!

obviously you haven't seen the heap Chris Quillman rides. That's more like a $2,500 GP bike.

Mark Stiles runs expert Unlimited GP on his TZ250. Edgar Dorn, Mark Sorenson, Jesse Janisch used all run the bigger classes on their SV. It's a waste of time and money unless you're going after the overall championship which don't work anymore either since they calculate your overall points based on your performance index.

OK, I don't know what I'm talking about. Whatever! He won some races, they were at a racetrack, he was on an SV.
