Good seeing your again Whirley and nice meeting you AspenBum. Sad to see the race season end. Wish I could have gotten out more this year but had so much going on with my deployment and other things.
Pretty happy with my results especially since I had to start pretty far back and had not been on the bike since May. Looking forward to getting back out next year and running the full season.

I Have some race video I will post up when I get the chance to edit it.

Cool, post them up when you get a chance.

Here is a video from the NGTO race ....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwQOH...ature=youtu.be

Pretty eventful race....
Bike goes down in exit of turn 7 @ 2:32

2 bikes crash into each other in turn 5 @ 5:39

Another goes off at entrance of turn 7 @ 6:56

Why was everyone crashing in front of me?? :-)

Cool video. I made it out to the track pretty late on Saturday so I didn't get photos of everyone but I'll post what I got soon.

Cool video. I haven't seen one yet from that track. Nice to see how someone else gets around it. Are you hitting 5th on the front straight? I was just getting 4th.
Also, I've not ever used a slipper clutch before. Is it not necessary to blip the throttle on downshifts?

If I can find a budget/sponsors, there is a good chance I'll be racing with you next season. I'll be the guy at the back of the pack :)

Nice on ya for not running those two guys over when they fell in front of you. I can't believe so many people went down in that race.

Yeah I am in 5th on the front straight. Down to 4th as I enter turn 1 so I can get good drive coming out then back to 5th after 1. Then I am all the way down to 2nd for infield turns.

You don't have to blip the throttle with the slipper. Just bang down the gears

Hey guys. I'm Dennis Stowers MRA #151 for those of you that don't know me. I am glad that you all had a great time. Hey Aspenbum, it was good to see you make it out after your little chain mishap. I hope you guys all make it out for some great racing action in Novice next year. I had a blast working with some superstreet guys this year, and hope to work with some others next year as well. I will try to post some events up here next year. I hope to see ya'll soon. I'm in the Westminster/Denver area. Hit me up if you like anytime.
