Won my race this weekend

Well, after 20yrs in the game, nice to know I can still get a holeshot and win a supersport race! I was over the moon since this was the weekend my wife and 2yr old son were up at the track. I brought him on the podium with me & he loved it.

I attribute the win to my new no-carb diet and new daily commute from Queens to Brooklyn in an aggressive environment. Will post a pic shortly.

Congrats! What track were you at? Loudon? I miss that feeling immensely, and the comradely of my racing family, but old body parts and budget dictated closing the door on that chapter of life. On the upside the wife has said a track day bike would be ok! I laughed as I haven't even found time to finish my street bike.... Again congrats!

Fast....yes Loudon NH!!. Picture perfect weekend. With the exception of 3 red flags in my GTL race. Guess a lot of guys were pushing too hard. Lot of red flags but not in my SS race.

Gonna try to post this link and see if it works

Nice to not be sliding on ice but just skating both tires in the dry. I was literally either full throttle or full brakes. No commuting.
