Weekend Thanks

The last few weekends, I have been fortunate enough to be able to be in Texas and work with Danny (Kelsey). I was almost certain after Hallet, that would be the Hottest race I had ever been too…I was wrong. For whatever reason, ECR just took the crown. It may have been hotter at Hallet, but ECR ate my lunch!

With the hot weather and 5 races on our program, Danny did a fantastic job riding…picking up 4 wins and a 2nd place. With three bikes being setup every weekend, the challenge is always present to get the “best setup”, but the team has done well.

Over the past several races, Danny has been able to provide excellent results and there are some people that need to be thanked.

First off, thank you to M & M Roadracing/Mitch McGinnis. He has done a great job in his first full year of fielding the team and bikes. I have not had time to put together a program for Danny and again, Mitch made a great commitment to Danny and it has definitely helped out.

GP Suspension – We run two different builds of their Cartridges in our bikes and both are just flat out excellent. I have never had to work on fork internals less than with the GP Suspension forks.

Michelin Tires – They just flat out rock. The tires stick incredibly well, aren’t finicky about pressure, and last a long time. We did not have to change any tires on race day despite the weather and having to put at least 3 races on the set for the 1000.

Komodo/Wayne & Lee - We have been with Komodo since they started. They provide so much support for the club and its riders, it is hard to understand why anyone would use any product other than Komoodo.

Lone Star Track Days – Steve and his team really work hard to support the CMRA and the riders that are in the club. Their professional program and friendly attitude are a great asset to the region.

DP Brakes – They are some bada$$ brake pads…We have used some of the other high $$$ pads in the past, but DP’s are as good when they are 10 races old as they are when they are new.

I also want to congratulate Derek Wagnon on his performances. It seems that a lot of the guys that we have always battled against (Ty, Dustin, Ricky (Parker), Matt Hall) are either gone, not active with the club, or moving up and Derek has upped his game so that there is great competition still in the club. We look forward to Ty coming back out, he has been the “benchmark” for racers in the CMRA for the last 8 years, and it is great when he is on the track riding with the club.

Looking forward to Cresson.
