Sunshine??? Warm weather??? I would even be happy with a little bit of summer. Anything but more rain!!!!!
If anyone has seen, heard of, or knows where I can find some. Please forward the info.
Flamboro was rained out for both days of racing.
We will see if Sunset Speedway lives up to it's name.

Heritage Champ Again

2 for 2, This year we really had to work for the race win. The 500 cc Honda in front of me was throwing roost the size of golf balls. It should have been easier, except for the terrible start I had. I hit the gate and had to back my bike up. Just then the gate dropped and everyone took off. It was all worth it. A little hard work goes a long way. Now all I need is a hot tub to soak in for a while. Next year at Walton we will be going for a third title.

Rain Tires and Umbrellas

Not much racing, but we were the first ones there. The long 3 hour haul up for nothing. Well, we did have lunch at the very cold beach. Long pants and sweaters, not the usual shorts and T's. We will try again at Flamboro. This will really tighten up the points with only 3 races left.

Making Progress

Flamboro went well for us, fast in practice and good in the heat. The top 3 were nose to tail as we moved up through the pack. We landed in the lead about 1/2 way. That's when it got interesting. A record 7 cautions. we held the lead for 6 of them, made 1 small mistake on the 7th and we ended up in 2nd. Another good night for the points race.

Sunset, starting 7 points out of 2nd place. 2nd in the heat with a really loose race car. More drifting action. Dave made a couple of adjustments and we started the feature in 9th. By 1/2 way we were in 3rd and putting pressure on those in front. We were on the outside of the second place car when he drove us up the track out of anything that resembles a racing groove. The 02 car passed us both on the inside. Now we had some extra work ahead of us. We dug deep and finished 2nd again for the 2nd week in a row. With that we move up to 2nd in points, 1 point ahead of the 66 car. Sauble beach here we come.
