Two 3rd Place Finishes At Palm Beach International!


Recommended Posts

Short story, it's late and I gotta get to work tomorrow.

 

Florida in August is the same as saying HOT and HUMID. But the rain stayed away.

 

AMA Pro Michael Barnes came to get some money and found Sean Dwyer. Sean is the new lap record holder at PBIR with a 1:16.699 to hold off a hard charging Michael Barnes and win the Unlimited GP race.

 

Me, I had my best weekend results wise so far with a 7th in GTO, 3rd in Unlimited SuperSport, 3rd in Unlimited Superbike, and a 6th in Unlimited GP. I also got a few laps in the 19s but I wasn't able to hold that pace yet.

 

Here's some links to some video:

Thanks to Ray and Jon for helping me out. And to Randy and his son Tyler for stopping by on Saturday!

 

Oct 3-4 at PBIR and then Oct 15-18 at Daytona!

Here's the only race I successfully recorded. The camera was having problems.

 

Racing for 3rd in Unlimited SuperSport:

 

I got a good launch but I backed off a bit early in the start and was in 6th at turn 1. By turn 4 I was 2 seconds back from the leaders and I couldn't close the gap after I got up to 3rd.

Greg,

 

Brilliant results, you must be really, really pleased.. times are good as well.

 

Will review video, when I'm not at work, and the video works.

 

Have a great weekend..

Thanks, I am really pleased. I see that I'm continuing to improve and it's not machinery related - same bike, same setup. I've in earnest started a weight loss program. I'm thinking that October Daytona will have a lot of really fast name racers there and I gotta be ready for that.

 

Maybe I'll get something done to the bike too, like change the spark plugs.
