I have to write that. I kind of dread writing them. Probably tomorrow

Race Report
AFM Round 2
Sonoma Raceway April 29 - 30, 2017

After much needed maintenance on the bikes after Round 1 was finished, we were off to Sonoma Raceway to take Round 2 head on.

Saturday Practice went well, the track was slick as this course is known for being, the morning left me with a headshake issue and chasing tire pressures, but the bike was dialed in by the afternoon with a compression adjustment by JPH Suspension. The 250 was also sporting newly re-done forks with brand new fluid by JPH Suspension for this weekend, and the bike has never felt better. There was only one Saturday race for me, a class I had not yet entered in 350 Superstock. Still learning the track, the race was mostly uneventful and I was able to take a 5th place finish.

Sunday would see three races, 250 Superbike, Lightweight Twins and 250 Superstock.
250 Superbike was another smooth, clean fought race ending up in a 6th place finish.
As I was learning the track better, laptimes were falling slowly but surely, and I gridded up for the novice Lightweight Twins race. I had a great start, and was able to hold off most of the Feel Like A Pro, LLC Ninja 300s on my 250. Coming out of turn 1 on lap 2, I was chasing Chris Ackerman when suddenly I realized there was a person spinning on the ground in the track heading up the hill, #973 had crashed out of the race and luckily I was able to avoid both him and his machine. The race concluded with my first podium of the weekend and a solid 3rd place.

The last race of the weekend, 250 Superstock saw me with another solid start to the race, able to make a couple passes heading out of turn 1. I had dropped many seconds off my lap from the beginning of the weekend, and was managing low 2s before the race was ended one lap early due to a red flag from a violent crash. I was able to take a 1st place finish in novice, and 2nd overall in the race. The weekend was a success and Id like to thank all my sponsors, friends and crew for the continual support.

Dialing myself in is the larger and greater challenge
