West Branch MI Short Track
The last three years Kerry Klug has promoted a little short track event during the Ogemaw County Fair in West Branch MI, held on Wednesdays. It is kind of a neat little short track, usually kind of rough. It's only about an hour and a half from my house. This year a few more people showed up for this short track race. I decided to ride my framer, not really sure if it was the best way to go or not, but it felt awesome to get to ride it again. With the new stock frame DTX rule a lot of promoters, whether it's the GNC or not, are making you run these at their events. So I ran my framer and won my Heat.

Before the Main Event I adjusted a couple of things to the bike. I was running 3rd in the race when Sammy Halbert slipped off the racing line. As he came back into the line I was there and we got together and he went down. A few laps later Nichole Cheza's bike was on the racing line as she slid out, bringing out the red flag. We lined back up in a straight line, with Jethro Halbert leading. This time Brandan Bergan stuck it to me on the inside but I was able to get him back. Another two riders went down and another red flag was brought out. We restarted with two laps to go-not much time to get anything going in two laps so I ended up in 2nd place.

La Monte MO
This La Monte race is very close to Sedalia MO where they used to have a Grand National race, and where I got my 2nd GNC win. I have always liked the track and had fun there. Dave Cory has been the Promoter of the event with Rick Yeager as the Sponsor. We run both classes on this, the 750 twins and the 450 DTX singles. I felt very good in practice, won both of my Heats and was fast time on the 750. 

In the 450 Main event I grabbed the hole shot and put in some hard laps, took a peak over my shoulder and saw I had almost a straight away lead. I put it on cruise and brought home the win. In the 750 Main I didn't get the hole shot but was 2nd. Entering turn 3, I was getting oiled down by Jethro Halbert and I had to quickly rip a tear-off to get the oil off of me. A red flag came out due to some down riders in turns 1 and 2. We lined back up in a straight line and I was on point. I got the hole shot, then another red flag came out. After the restart I was able to maintain a good gap over 2nd place and won the 750 Twins class as well. Great weekend, winning both classes, good for my confidence.

Our next stop is the AMA Grand National Twins race in Calistoga CA this Saturday night. It should be a great night of racing out west, and I can't wait to see all the California fans. I hope to report some great results. On Sunday (Aug 1 st) I will be doing a re-scheduled T.V. interview with Speedtv on Dave Despain's "Wind Tunnel". The show runs from 9-10pm eastern time, and I hope all the Flattrack fans will tune in to watch it, it will be nice to get some Flattrack coverage on primtime T.V.

Thank you for the support.
