(June 13, 2013) - This past weekend we took a trip over to Ohio to go do some cushion track racing and testing. Our first stop was in Dayton, OH for a Saturday night race at the Montgomery Co. 1/2 mile track. We got to race both the 450 Honda and the Suzuki twin cylinder machine. I won both heats on each bike and had great starting spots for the main. The 450 was the first main event and Kayl Kolkman got out front and I never could quit get the grip I needed to make a move for the lead. We ended up a respectable 2nd and we were onto the big motor class. The Suzuki twin got off the line well and I grabbed the lead in the first corner. I stuck the Suzuki in the cushion up high on the race track and lead the race wire to wire, with Dan Ingram coming in 2nd and Kolkman coming in 3rd. After a good night of racing we drove up to Lima Sunday for some testing. Lima, OH is the next national on the schedule so we jumped on the opportunity to get some laps around the fast, wide cushion half mile. We got some laps around the place and made good changes to prepare for the upcoming race. Thanks to Weirbach Racing and all the sponsors for putting great equipment under me. Hope to see you at the races soon!
