I know it's not a WERA race but it's still racing Well the day started off cold. It was 28 degrees when I got to the track Sunday morning. Warmed up quick though. Skipped 1st practice so I could get a new rear tire mounted. Took almost an hour, started to wonder if I was going to have time to get them on the warmers before 2nd practice ended. there was a red flag in middle weight practice so I got some extra warmer time. My practice is up, I take it easy the 1st couple laps, pick up the pace for 3 or 4 laps to scrub the tires and came in and parked it. about 2:00 My race is up. Heavy weight Novice. I'm gridded 9th on the 3rd row out of 19. My friend Albert is right in front of me on the first row. Green flag drops and Albert and I both get great starts. Albert leads into turn 1, I settled into about 6th or 7th. Passed a few going into 2 and was in 3rd. Passed 2nd place coming out of 4. Now I have my sights set on Albert. He's fast and not easy to pass I finally caught him on lap 2 and passed him going into 7 on the back straight. Albert finished 2nd with a best time of 1:31.xxx Won my first race with a best lap time of 1:29.482. What a blast Can't wait till Feb 14th and 15th for my next race.
