Mid-Ohio
« on: July 22, 2009, 12:48:12 AM »
Anyone heading down to Mid-Ohio this weekend for the Vintage Days? BSA is the marquee this year. I will be down there Saturday and Sunday doing some Road Racing on the Enfield. Still unsure if I am going down Friday to walk around or not.

Just got a new belly pan/oil catch pan made tonight. Final safety wiring and stuff comes tomorrow night, get the jetting sorted out tomorrow during the day.

Got the trailer down last night. The pits were pretty empty. Swap meet was already muddy.

Sorry for the quick update. The only other bike that entered in my class  ::) was a Goldstar. We also ran with some 350 Honda's and some two-stokers.  Half the people didn't even run on Saturday because of the ran/track. I got the hole-shot on Saturday from the 7th row, but ended up crashing in the 7th corner.  :P

Today, lots of people raced. We were on the front row. A couple of Honda's passed me into turn 1, but I passed them back on the second lap and held everyone off for the rest of the race.

I was there, but I must have missed you somehow.  :-\

Are you going to race at Barber in October? I ordered my tickets the other day.

The plan is to be at Barber. I just got this in the mail the other day. We took off before the awards were handed out.
