I wound up winning that day, but in the finals we had a minute in the burnout box so I took my glove off to check it. I had to ring the blood out of it cause it was so wet.

"1st race of the year recap!!"
"What started out as a terrible weekend ended pretty good. On the the way to the track on Thursday night we had i big issue when i opened trailer to check everything about half way there and the RealStreet bike was laying completely on it side both wheels off the ground after a few choice words we got it set back up it broke the windscreen off and broke the coil ignitor box so bike wouldn't run. And of course scratched up both bikes that just got repainted. It was 10-11pm and started calling around to find a box luckily Sydney Marshall had one with him to save the weekend for us.
On Friday after spending all morning to just try to get both bikes back to where they where before we left the shop. The ole faithful index bike was dead on like always and the Realstreet bike made a couple decent passes. Then Cole Mountain Seitzinger from Penske gave us the opportunity to test the new air shock from them and it went great and we will definitely be running them as soon as they are built. Then came 1st qualifier and we went number 1 qualifier. Sat was a wash out and about mid day i decided to check the oil filter and seen copper flake so we tore that motor out and built our entire spare motor from literally bare cases and fired it up at 1 am Sunday and no issues. Sunday was great for real street we made it to the finals and runner upped to Johnny turbo and made for the best weekend to date for us in Realstreet and for index classes i was .007 red in super comp and lost at 6 to Dusty Brazel just miss judged the stripe in 8.88. All and all it was a awesome weekend and for how bad the weather was MANCUP did great getting everything done and ran smooth! Thanks to everyone that helps us!
