My first expert race weekend went great. I was able to podium twice with second place finishes in both ESS and DSS. I took forth in Clubman, and fifth in the Lightweight Solo 20, which both of those races had several bigger bikes that I was competing against. My biggest accomplishment was dropping 3 seconds off of my previous best lap time; I was running consistent 1:11’s. I contribute my success on the track to the skills I’ve learned at the Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy. My body positioning looked and felt better than ever. I was able to get to where I was because of the great Pirelli tires I got from James Bock at Podium Motorsports Pirelli. They allow me some awesome lean angle and they have a great relationship with the surface of the race track. Another great thing that helped me get a great drive out of the turns was my lightweight chain kit from Racer Café, Inc. I could really tell a difference in the way that my 250 was able to get back up to speed with the new chain. . This is a great way to start off my first year being expert. I could not have done this if it weren't for all of my great sponsors and supporters. I can’t wait until I get back onto the track in March at Roebling Rd. Raceway.
