    What a weekend!!!!!!


    Le-Mans style pit stops, we had that. Pre-race scrambles to to rebuild a wrecked bike, yep, had that too. Mid-race THRASHES to get our bike back back on the track after an on-track collision, oh yeah, that was us. For those of you who weren't there. You missed a chance to be involved in things you normally only see on TV.
    For those of you who did make it out......THANK YOU!!!!! Jay, Chris J, Mick, Adam, Jeff and Steve, JJ, Todd, Dan, Kevin and anyone else I missed. (Sorry guys it's midnight and its been a long 18 hr day).
    A special Thanks to the wives and girlfriends of the pit crew and riders, for putting up with our manical bullshit. And for not laughing at us for looking like a bunch of 10 year-olds in a candy store with a $5 bill.
    And last but not least......The Riders. Derrik, Gerard and Pete. Thank You. For making it an INCREDIBLE weekend and giving me a lifetime full of memories.
    Whoops, gotta go......Bus Number 3 just pulled up

    What a weekend!!!!!!

    gotta agree w/ Bill... what a frikkin' awesome day. don't know if it was just a usual raceday for y'all, but I had a blast. for my first NESR event, it was most excellent. glad to see the lunatic fringe is well represented here. Degsy / Gerard / Bill / Jay / Chris / etc (I'm lousy w/ names)-- great to meetcha, and put faces to the personalities. Mick-- great to see ya again, mate... been too f-ing long.

    look forward to doing it again soon, and-- even better-- logging some miles w/ you lot.

    thanx

    Re: Degsy takes a digger

    So let's get this straight, did you crash in the bowl or in turn 12? I thought I saw you go down in the bowl, but everyone else said it wasn't you but that you did crash at that exact moment in 12? I'm so lost now.

    Anyway, I've got some pics that will be going up soon...check the updates section on the main page to see when it's up.

    Here's degs makin' me proud on his way down to the bowl.

    Josh, first off, please send me that pic in hi res full size to dasinclair@attbi.com

    Secondly, what happened was I passed two two strokers going into the bowl (much faster than them) and cut in for the apex. As I hit the apex, there was a huge jolt from the rear end and the bike stood upright and headed for the grandstand with me riding the bars superman style. I was still doing about 50 at this time. When I hit the gravel (which is more like a moonscape up there with 6 and 7 inch rocks mixed with dirt) the bike flipped and I smacked my head on the ground and slid to the wall. The bike hit the wall and the corner workers picked it up for me and started it and sent me on my way with it stuck in second gear.

    P.S The jolt from the rear was the stroker guy smashing into the back of my bike. He went into the gravel also but stayed upright.

    You guys did a great job. Fixing the bike in the Endurance race can be a bitch when you are racing against the clock. I should know, my brother's EX kept overheating last year. You guys did an awesome job fixing that bike though.

    I would have helped out if I wasn't taking time for our team and getting ready for an incident. Our team (Team Sunday Drivers, with Brian Yoo, Chris Bruno, Paul Duval and another Brian who's lastname I didn't catch) finished 15th overall and 6th in class. We had no real big incidents either. Paul crashed in 3 but still got a 1:32 on that lap. We had 25-30second pitstops and found swapping a whole tank on the RS125 was faster than filling it.

    The endurance races are the most fun of the whole year. They should have more.
