Free Track Time, Please Respond

Okay, this is the third year that I am putting this out there. So far there have been no takers. This is likely the last year that I will offer this so take advantage of it.



I am putting this out there for any fellow 675 riders, Daytona or Street. I live and ride in Colorado and am part of the local race club here. We have a program called SuperStreet that allows street riders or beginning track day riders to come out and get some great instruction from expert racers then we set up a mock race at the end of it. It is a really great and inexpensive way to get on the track.
I will sponsor your entry fee (normally $100) if you want to come out and ride with us. Check out the tracks, check out the club. Not only that, I will sponsor TWO of your entries for the season. Don't want to do it by yourself? No problem, bring a friend (even if they don't ride a 675) and I will sponsor their SuperStreet entries as well. If you want to do this and don't have the required gear, still hit me up. I have a bunch (like quite a lot) of spare gear in a lot of sizes, you can use it free of cost for the event.
More info here:

A street bike is fine, you do not need a track only or race bike to do this.


Please pm me, I don't get around to checking this often but I get emails for pm's so I will see it pretty quick.

WOW! This is a truly phenomenal opportunity. Selfless giving to allow other to have new experiences, learn more, and have a great environment to be coached, and see what a track weekend is like.
How has no one taken you up on this? Do you post this on any other platform, social media, your race org, local twisties with newer riders that are eager and serious about it?
I worked my ass off for days on the ambulance to afford my first track weekends, now i have just built it into my budget. Instead of getting more gear, I would like to start doing this.
Sponsor a rider for a full weekend once a year.

Gosh, what a great community! Keep it up!

Super cool of you to offer this. Wish I lived in the area as that sounds like a great time. Hope you find someone fun to sponsor.

I'm really not sure why no one has taken me up. Smaller rider community for the 675 and even smaller still in Colorado I would imagine has something to do with it. I must admit though it isn't an entirely selfless thing. I don't gain anything from it at all but my company sponsors a class for the race club and as such I am afforded an opportunity to help new riders come out. It still costs me money but in a roundabout sort of way.
I sit on the board as the tech guy for our club. I started a program for loaner gear for new riders to help get them on the track to see if it is something they want to continue to pursue before they spend a ton of money buying suits, etc. Fellow members donated extra gear (a ton of it!) that I keep track of and drag around with me... so that is where the gear comes from. The club owns it, not me.

So this is how I am able to offer this. I only offer this to 675.net members and my clients. I don't put it out there for other clubs or organizations for fear of getting a huge demand that I cannot supply. While I love to do this, my resources are not unlimited.

I really like this particular community and I have been here for a while. This forum and the people here have helped me out in tremendous ways, I am just trying to give back a little. 675 people do it better anyway 😉


Although, I would certainly support someone else who was interested if they were to reach out.

I came across an offer like this on a local riders form in CA for my first time on the track, one session in I was hooked. Awesome opportunity for someone looking to better their riding. OP thank you for making this available to someone and helping grow the sport and community!

That is an awesome opportunity! I've had a Daytona for a few years now and for one reason or another I am just now about to do my first track day. If this was a bit closer to Dallas I'd be all over it, thanks for putting this out there and I hope some others are able to take advantage of this
