    Brian definitely made it into the 14.9% bracket, for the record. He could competently circulate the track.

    Not today. He’s a sad state of affairs, last I knew.
    Paul Grimes can turn some hot laps, but he isn’t technically from Plymouth.

    Re: Did my Penguin Basic School Today

    This thread made me go back and read my first track thread. I remember being much more of a DB in my thread, although I did jump all over Bubs for basically no reason. Well, it's settled, I'm still a DB.

    What happened to him? I donít mean age caught up and slowed down his racing. In the day he could run top 3 in the 500 nationals, run up with the 250 USGP at unadilla. Win on a 125 with a worn out rear knobby in New England Sports Committee racing and respected enough to hang out with Bob Hannah.

    Re: Did my Penguin Basic School Today

    I think it all boils down to personal vices, and being on top of the world at a relatively young age, and possibly some family history. Or likely, some combo of the three.

    Per the PB thread, looks like he got down to a 17.9 on an r6 before he hung it up. That’s not really anything to laugh at.
