well, that had to be two of the nicest days weather wise i have ever experienced at n.h.i.s.!

never got around to congratulate mike o. on his second place finish in form cb., he and others handed me my ass.

freakin' j not that d stalled his bike on the grid, pushed off to the side, and restarted after we were all through t1, caught me on the second or third lap in the back straight area. he passed me so hard, fast, and clean i felt like i was sitting on my bike drinking tea.

timothy then gave me a near death experience in t3 when he shot inside of me a little hot. he was cool, going wide left, willing to take his lumps in the dirt/gravel, rather than trying to jam it in to make it stick at all costs. i thank you again for being that predictable and cool.

and rabbie of course slaughtered the field.

on the reiju, joe root got his 1st ride and he handed me my ass first lap in t1a. i then had a battle with "lou from maine, #241" who passed me for second in t3 on the last lap. charging hard up the hill to catch him, i spit the chain off in t4. race over, dnf!

so i spent over $250.00 in gas and tolls getting there to dnf and grab a lousy fourth. i had a blast and would gladly do it again. thinking hard about frontier land. i might need an october race fix, and two days trackside sure beats one.

good to see jeremy and his enormous noggin'. aaron, thanks for the dough. and mike o., respect. come on down to summit 9/17, so i can get some revenge.

peace,

tex

Tex,
Frontier really is a blast, super casual...they don't even do results. Lots of track time on Sat. Races on Sun. Lots of hanging out at night and partying, pig roasting etc.

So what ended up happening in 200?
I was slowly watching Mary,Steve D, and George inch away from me until I was riding around alone. Nobody I could see in front or behind me.

Johnny had motor issues and pulled off in three, frank and I had a little race going and then matt c came out of no where and died for a while. The finish was frank, myself, and the I think matt. It was a great race for myself and Sonja got some cool pics from the 200gp race. I'll post some when I tonight.


Hey, How did Jason Porter end up with 2nd is light weight if he crashed and the race stoped?

I was scoring that race, with kathy Smith, and it apparently is USCRA rules that when someone crashes and the race is over, the previous laps "scoring" is used to determine finish. It has nothing to do with the fact that he was the one crashed. He was in second. (I think.) We were also advised by Cindy on the rules.

I thought that was kind of messed up too. I would expect to be DNF'd if I ended the race with a red flag crash.

hmmm so does that mean if I can get into the lead on the first lap and some how cause a red flag on the second I get the win ??!?!? (he thought aloud to himself ) Maybe that is how I'd be able to catch Rabbie (350RR ;) (now for the stealth two extra cylinders I'd need to be able to do that... ) Johnny.. How is that coming along anyway ? I see my paypal payment went through on that :))
... Now all I need is the flipping number plates, the oil out the back button on the dash and maybe a torpedo or two from under the pipes....

Tex next time I'll bring the crumpets hehehehe

Seeing you stall on the line made me think "Maybe I can beat him now"

Didn't expect to see you come flying through in such a short time.

That has to be wrong. And if its not wrong it should be corrected. The other JD brings a good point, lead for any given time and wax yourself in to any corner and then you keep your position.

Also then how come I didn't get first place for the first 125gp race of the season. Not only did they not give me my place they didn't give me any finish.

What's up with that?

Aaron

Porter gets to run over people and still win too.

He ran over me two years go in 12 and went on to victory...I went on to spend $300 fixing my bike.

forgive my newbile, naive-ness but I'm never one to say "oh that's the way it is" and walk away. I have nothing against Jason, he's a stand up guy all the way, and I wouldn't expect him to have a gripe about this unless it worked out to his dis-advantage. After all racing is racing BUT... whom are "they" that we should address this type of issue with and get it changed? This issue not with standing how do we correct this type of issue going forward and why does Aaron lose his standing for that race and Jason not in this one?

Your humble servant...

Champ,
Even though I'm usually around you by turn 2 I gotta say your starts really are spectacular. You cut that flag right on the money and must have a very skillful clutch hand.

bfd,

about j not that d stalling on the grid, i was thinking the same damn thing. sorry jd. don't bring the crumpets, just the tequila!

the rules up there are really arbitrary at times. that really sucks for all of you in lwsv.

starting to get really psyched about frontierland.

see ya,

tex

All I can say is that thank GOD for the started guy who helped me and the ten pounds of fury it put in me :) I think it helped keep me away from Tim in 3 and put you in Tex :) (he told me he had a close encounter with you there) ... All joking aside I can't thank you all enough for making it so fun to come out and race! Now if someone could start working on my bikes for me that would be nice thuogh, I promise to mention your name every chance I get and together we could rule the world !!!

Aaron,
I for the life of me can not understand how you cause a red flag ie: crash and be scored!!! Makes no sense to me. He should of had a DNF.
The Ducati is not that bad acouple of scrapes and bruises-I plan to do a repaint and add a fairing this winter. Oh yea Camehairy said he used your fairing to draft you down the straight.

JB,
Pretty cool on the starts huh!! I have made it a point that if I do anything right in a race is to get a good start. I have studied Cindy many times and know exactly when she is going to throw the flag. Sucks though, cause I'm like a womens nightmare. I blow my load early!!!

Champ, I, too, was impressed by your start. Fastest I've ever seen. It was amazing. Like you had two rear sprockets, one for launch and the other for loss.
