This was my second race of my amateur career. Had a good practice session Friday, got almost a second off my lap times from the previous race weekend. Saturday morning it was raining, and had no rain tires so missed qualifying in the afternoon. Started Sunday morning practice in the rain (picked up a used set from a pro rider). Started in the back 15th out of 17, due to not qualifying. Ended up finishing 4th! Next race the sun comes up and a big panic to get the DOT's on and the line up is huge at the tire machine. Missed all 3 calls for the warm up, and had to start on pit lane and wait until all 13 bikes were gone past me. Ended up finishing 6th. Next race statred 9th and with 1.5 laps to go I was after passing a couple of really fast and experienced riders, I was now in 2nd place and thought for sure one of them had to be right on my ass.Going into turn 4 (of 11) and looked to the left shoulder just a little bit, STUPID MOVE , went wide in the turn and my steering dampner was loose at the time, I hit a rough patch and front washed out! Would have been my 1st podium! Oh well I dropped my times from 1:19's to 1:16's which I think is pretty good, puts me in contention for a podium for future races!
