WERA National @ Miller Motorsports Park. Anyone goin'?

Just figured I'd check in and see....

I've been looking forward to this trip for a while. Miller is unreal... I can't wait to ride there again!

Any other ZX-10R Forum members coming out to play?

I wish man. When is it? I think my main sponsor from Indy Superbike is coming out to ride though. Say hi to him, Chris is his name and he rides an yellow plate new R6. You can see them with the big IndySuperbike rig.

It's next weekend.... the weekend of June 16/17. We're heading out there next Weds, the 13th and practicing Thurs and Fri. I'm skipping this month's WSMC races and driving 12+ hours to attend. It's by far my most expensive race weekend of the year and I still can't fuggin wait!!

I don't race much WERA but just can't pass this one up, the place is seriously out of this world. I've ridden most of the West Coast tracks including Laguna, Infineon and Ca. Speedway and Miller absolutely blows them ALL away. Bigtime. No comparison.

If there's a race to show up to and just go ride for the hell of it without worrying about points or the series or anything... this is it! Come on out and check it out! It's worth the trip...

I totally believe you and if I could afford it I would be there in a second. Good luck and have a blast.

Let's see, there's a 'Promoter Practice' put on by the track on Thursday, then WERA race practice on Friday. Saturday is the WERA Endurance round and Sunday is the Sprint Races. We'll be running the 'Outer Track' which is just over 3 miles and I'm assuming the AMA is going to do the same... they did that last year. The AMA round is the following weekend.

Thanks for the 'Good Luck' and believe me, I'm going to try to keep it safe! Who wants to drive 800 miles to crash?

For Miller I'll just be racing the 10. Right now the 600 is just for 'The Streets' Series though we're talking about running them at the Big Track at Willow later this year but it's still a little uncertain. Things are definately in the works there though and I'm looking forward to what happens...

I'm planning on running everything I can at the WERA round including Open Superstock, Open Superbike and Formula 1. We're trying to throw together some sort of Endurance team to ride Saturday just for practice but it doesn't look like we're going to have time to organize it.:headshake

I'm not riding up there with B.J./Bryce but we're pitting with them.

Thanks man! I can't wait!!

Roooooooadd Trip!!!

Bags are packed, gear is organized, bike is almost ready and damnit, it's time for a Road Trip.

We're leaving early tomorrow morning and heading for Utah. Looks like I will be riding in the 6 hour endurance race on Saturday. I don't know the name of the team but we'll be on a ZX-10 (not mine) and I'll take lots of pictures.

Sunday I'll be racing my bike in the 3 Expert Open classes and we'll see how it goes. A WERA National attracts some seriously speedy guys so I hope to hold my own ok. In my infinate wisdom I decided to make some last minute changes to the bike (New fork internals; Ohlins 25mm kit) and hopefully it'll work out for the best, they'll be installed tonight.

See ya'll in a week and hopefully I'll have a great report to post!

Hey Matt,

Saw your "personal" ad on the WERA bbs...

Glad to hear you found an endurance gig...and staying green

What else could you possibly ask ??

Keep the rubber down and we need (mucho) photos and race reports..
