This weekend at Talladega was a blast. Saturday in practice we where trying to put the lessons I learned at California Superbike School to the test and it worked out very good. Sunday in the first practice there where at least 40 people in light weight practice it was a mad house but it was very good passing experience so then for the second practice they spread us out so expert would go out then novice. We went out and I felt really good. In race one race which was formula 2 the grid was huge and their where so many 650s! I got 3rd place on my 250 and I was battling for 2nd. There were two other guys that were on 650s for third place and then I finally got around them and I finished 3rd out of nine riders. I got so much faster when I got pushed bye those 650s. When the formula 3 race started I started on pole and I ended up in second and I had an awesome battle for second and I was looking back and my friend Jason Clark was on my tail and then he passed me going into turn 2. After he passed me I put my head down and passed him back the next lap on the inside of the last turn. I was able to get a gap on him and make a run for the leader. I didn't have enough time but I was only 2 seconds behind at the finish. Say something about this event...
