My race weekend at Gateway this past weekend (9/19-20/15)

I got my new transmission back in my bike Thursday night and didn't have time to actually test it out so I had to test it in the first practice session on Saturday:


It felt better than it did when I got the bike new back in January!

Saturday's 1pm race was red flagged after 8 laps and we had to restart it in the afternoon as a 6 lap sprint. I was leading when the red flag came out and I ended up winning the 6 lap sprint right at the line. I am still working on the video from Saturday afternoon and Sunday but here is the Saturday race before the red flag:


My buddy Jarred was running second and actually missed turn 1 because he missed a down shift, ended up hitting the wall on the top of the oval banking and might have had a bit of a concussion, but he didn't go to the hospital. My buddy Robbie then took over 2nd. My buddy Bubba was the cause of the red flag, you'll see some pretty spectacular pictures of it near the end of that last video.

Here's a pic from Saturday afternoon with young Robbie right on my ass:



He ended up passing me on the last corner of the last lap but I got him back at the line. :) I'll get the other two videos up as soon as I can with more info. I'll even have the announcer audio mixed into those.

Thanks! Yeah, he stacked it up on the tires. :) At 9:30 you can see Jarred miss turn 1.

Okay, I am really happy with the way the Sunday GT race video turned out (except for the fact that I didn't win)!


It's still processing so it might not have the higher resolutions available yet.
