Thanks again guys. It is definitely an experience I'll never forget. I'll be buying all the pics I can get of my first weekend. Running 13's at BHF is still not fast considering there are guys running 10's. But knowing I'm still not pushing the limits is scary (see pics) The first pic is turn 4, the next is turn 6. I was taking every corner faster than I had ever done before. I guess this is proof, no pun intended

Damn this kid is no joke.

I still can't believe you were the dude trying to put your bike together (with your bro) at Wink's a little while back It's even harder to believe that you were in B class not too long ago. You definitely have some talent man. Keep it up and congrats on your bumps throughout the season and on your results this past weekend.

You are right though, I have to tighten up my lines through 4 and 6, but those mountains of concrete are a little high for my liking. I did have a close call with the curbing in the bus stop - it actually scraped the ends of my brake pedal and foot peg. I bet I was right on that apex
