Haggerstown, MD (AMA Pro Race)
After doing well in York, Pa the weekend prior my family and I decided to give Haggerstown a try. This would be my first Pro Race back since i got hurt at Lima. It took some adjusting to tune the bike for this track it was a clay half mile and I never really rode one before. I ended up qualifying 15th out of 44 riders and I felt very confident. In the heat I soon learned that the track had changed and I needed to make some changes also. I had to be in the top 7 positions to go directly to the main. I was in the back and it took me a few laps to figure out what I had to do to get to the front. Unfortunatly I neede an other lap and I finished 8th. I had to go to a semi. We made some changes went to the semi. I had pole position, but I didn't get a good start and went backwards befor going forwards. I finished 5th, not making it to the main. My dad and dicused what could have been done to improve my ridig and the bike and I am sure i will be ready next year.
Leamington, Ont. (CMA Race)
This is a nice stone dust half mile one which I have done well in the past. The weekend started with a lot of rain, to much rain and they postponed the race until Sunday. Sunday I went out in practice to trysomething new, it worked in York so i wanted to try it here. Neddles to say it didn't work here so i had to change my set up again. I ran two classes the 450 Expert and Open Expert. I only had my 2010 Yamaha 450 to run both classes and at this track frame bikes do well but i felt my bike would work pretty good. I got 2nd in the 450 heat and 6th in the Open heat. all day I had bad starts and the finals were no different. The track was really wet especially in the Open final. I ended up 8th in the 450 and 11th in the Open.
Indy Mile (AMA Pro Race)
Last weekend I went to Indy. I couldn't wait to ride this track. I only have ridden two diferent mile tracks, DeQuoin and Sprinfield. The track was nice but a little tricky. I had my best qualifing so far this year, qualifying 11th. I finished 6the in my heat behide several of the top ranked Pros and this sent me directly to the main event. After some bike adjustments I was ready for the final. I had a great start, (my dad and worked on strts all week after Leamington). I rode mid pack most of the race and finished 11th. Overall it was a good weekend.
Labor Day weekend I go back to Sprinfield, Ill to ride the Mile again and the short track. This will be my first Pro short track. Thanks to all my sponsors for all their help.
