This weekend at Roebling Road Raceway, racing the second regional race weekend and it great, finishing with a 2nd and a 4th place. I had an eventful battle in my ESS race. Josh Jovi, Dante Witter, Peter Hupperich, and I all were battling the whole race, I was in second for a few laps, then Peter and Dante passed me and I then was in fourth. For about two laps, I was sitting in fourth then we came to the front stretch where I caught Peters draft and flew between him and Dante into the first turn. I then late braked and then I was in second right behind Josh. I was behind him for two laps but he held his ground. I walked out with a second place finish, a really cool thing was Josh, Dante, and I finished within a quarter of second of each other.My other race was the DSS race which was combined with the Lightweight Superbikes. I ran 3rd for the whole race until a big Ducati 750 on the last lap in the last turn, despite getting 4th, I ran my fastest lap in that race. Overall, I improved my lap times by 8.4 seconds and had an awesome weekend! I would like to thank Jamie at Daugherty Motorsports for the great suspension setup; this was my first weekend with the front emulators and a “proper” rear shock. And Ralph at Somethin’ Extra Cycles for his wisdom with jet setup for the carburetors. My next round is at NOLA in New Orleans which is a huge haul down there. I can't wait to go out and win some races.
