This past weekend we went to StocktonCA to a track that no one has ever been to before. I was really excited to start the season. The day before the race I went to the track to check it out and when we got there I was surprised how small the track was. I walked around it and it was really smooth and looked awesome.

On Saturday we got to the track and were ready to go, I felt good and the bikes looked great with the new 110 anniversary colors on them. First practice we were way off on setup so it was waist. The second was better but still off and I just couldn’t get the flow. After practice we changed the bike a lot. We knew we had to do something to make it better because we were way off. In my heat race I got off 2nd and was charging but still just couldn’t get the bike to work. I ended up 6th and was really frustrated. In the semi I got off the line 2nd again and was struggling and got passed so that put me in the last transfer spot with guys right on my butt. I ended up 3rd barely and was in the main.

Main event I was on the 3rd row, last pick and knew I needed to get a good start. I think I was about 11th or so off the line and started to work my way up one by one. The bike was better but not great so I moved around the track to see if something was better. I started riding a little higher on the track and was moving forward. By the white flag I was in 7th, right on 6th but ran out of time.

You can say it was a good night after all we went through but I was really mad and just wanted to go home and think about what I did wrong or what we should have done to make the bike better.

I want to thank Craig and Mike for not giving up and working hard all day. We will be in front in Springfield, I guarantee it.
