JT Racing Series II
Race 1
Glen Helen Raceway

I had every intension of skipping this months race, I have a bunch of frame work to finish on the Norton, I have another metal sliver in my eye & I hadn't touched my race bike since last month. A text from Bob at 6:00 the night before about how pleasant the weather was and it all turned into race prep scramble.
It was hot as Hell, I moved up a class only to ride shitty, but any day on the bike is a good day and I had fun.
The new trophies are collector mugs featuring an attending honored historic rider and this month was Gary Faxon, I've had little conversation with Gary but it is very clear to me that he's the "gentlemans racer" who carries himself with a lot of class. It was great to see him as the honored Pro.
The Premier Class is up to four great old twins and growing, I'm thinking that might be a fun second class to run, We'll see.

The damn metal eye slivers will get you every time. I hope your eye is healed up ok.

I had glasses on.
I'm going to get in the habit of wearing a shield & glasses.

I've had stuff bounce around glasses too, now I wear goggles more often or not. You guys in Cali got it made. I wish there were more vintage MX around here, I'd have to roll the old bones out for a bit of nostalgia.
