2014 Race at Chuckwalla with CVMA 3|15-16|14

Thanks to a couple individuals, Stephen Ludwig and Andy Palmer of AP MotoArts, I was given the opportunity to fly out to LA and race at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. The trip as a whole was just awesome to say the least. I flew out of Philadelphia on Thursday and landed in LA early afternoon. It...

2014 Prep Post #2

So I have decided to hold off on putting the new motor in the bike. The first round is at Carolina Motorsports Park with Will and I doing the team challenge event. I feel that the current motor is running good and will be the best bet for this race. As of right now the...

2013 Race #3 – Summit Point June 29th-30th

First time riding with the new rear wheel set up. Honda CBR F3 with a Bridgestone 165 slick. I have always ridden on a 180 so this will be a big change…. and a big change it was. The bike felt completely different. It was like starting all over. First thing I noticed was the...
