    Default track day anyone?

    so, long story short....got really sick, rare viral infection in throat, they cut it open, let it drain, disgusting, very painfull.

    had to miss 2 days of class, now must wait to join the class 3 wks behind mine. THAT MEANS, i have the next 3 weeks to do absolutly NOTHING.
    I MUST DO A TRACKDAY before i start again. between now and when i start again, i gota list:

    Sun 10 AUG: Ridesmart @ Motorsport Ranch Cresson, TX

    Mon 11 AUG: Lone Star Track Days @ Texas World Speedway

    Fri 15 AUG: Elite trackdays (happy friday) @ Harris Hill Road

    Sat 16 AUG: Ridesmart @ Eagle Canyon Raceway
    TX Trackdays @ Motorsport Ranch Cresson, TX

    Sun 17 AUG: Ridesmart @ Eagle Canyon Raceway

    Fri 22 AUG: Lone Star Trackdays @ Motorsport Ranch Cresson, TX

    i cant decide which one i want to do, if there's one i missed, let me know. and if you want to go to one, pleez tell me soon, it'll help me choose and we can work something out.

    There is a Texas Track Day on 8/16 at Cresson. It will be the 3.1 mile track.

    hmm, i know their website says 3.1, but i thought i got an email from TTD stating it would be the 1.7 similar to the upcoming cmra event. now i've got to ask them, because the 3.1 track is a blast.

    It is going to be the 3.1. Orginally the 16th was going to be two tracks. The 1.7 for big bikes and the 1.3 for mini's with the 17th being the 3.1. Mini riders apparently are not all that interested in practice, so we ended up canceling the 17th and making the 16th a 3.1 mile corse which more also fit more riders schedules.

    unfortunately not. if i was healthy this would be an awesome week for trackdays and future poverty. tws on monday, harris hill on friday, cresson on saturday, and eagles canyon on sunday. if i can walk after monday at tws, i will almost certainly go to cresson and eagles canyon. what was it Carl said, "i have an addiction?" time for me to go see the dealer on the corner for some ibuprofen. i've managed to make my sore legs worse by overdoing it at work. i hate getting old.

    thanks for the clarification Skid, i hope to be there. the 3.1 at cresson is the funnest track in texas.

    No problem. I can't wait myself. It will be the first time I have ever been on the 3.1. Previsouly, I have only been on the 1.7 in both directions.
