all the middleweight, heavyweight and unlimited classes. Must run DOT tire for SS but you can run slicks in Superbike and GP classes.

thank you for providing a REAL answer

so i'm guessing i'd get my ass handed to me by big bikes in Heavyweight and Unlimited right?

So basicly i can/should run all the middleweight classes and run the approate tires?

Not necessarily. That would depend on the track and the event but It's mostly the same riders in all the classes. I would say the majority of the bikes in the MW, HW, and Unlimited classes are 600s.

lol, not exactly. At RA, yes, you're fighting an uphill battle. I still pulled off a 5th there the last weekend in HWSS. At BHF, 600's are just about as competitive as bigger bikes. I placed 3rd in GTO last BHF behind Dustin and Steve. They were a bit ahead of me but if you can corner, you still have a chance against liter bikes and 750's.

MW is actually one of the most competitive classes because it's always so full. I'm not positive why some of the fastest middleweight guys don't race all the classes at blackhawk, but they just don't. If you want a light grid to start out with try Unlimited classes or heavyweight classes. If you want the meatgrinder sign up for her. More bikes in those classes are always fun.

yeah at BHF in NESBA A i can beat up on some the 750s and 1000s way easier than RA i love BHF and i feel really confident there, i might just try that!

thanks again!

What kind of laps are you doing at BHF Alex? You basically know what you are doing out on the track. The only stuff you need to learn are race procedures, flags and certain scenarios that would only happen during a race. You'll do good in the amatuer field. You have alot of seat time under your belt.

I guess I'll have to get my bike ready for the 29th. I have to actually finish a race this year, might as well beat mopar while I do it.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

You'll do fine in HW then. The current leader in that class is running 12-13's, and the top 3 are consistently in the 14's. But everyone else is 16's and 17's or slower. Come on out and race HW.

You'd be fine in the heavyweight class. The grid will be smaller, so you'll have less traffic to contend with. There weren't many bikes in unlimited in May. Sign up, you'll do fine.
