Barber WERA race 5-13-12
« on: May 14, 2012, 06:26:32 pm »
We had one heck of a weekend...Missed Sat races due to truck problems. The weather was not nice to the riders at all... I cannot even begin to tell you how many times the guys in our pits had to change tires/wheels... at times we changed 3 or 4 times before one race... slicks, rains, GPA's, back to rains...  :groan

There were A LOT of crashes this weekend. Our group only had one. Mary was in an epic battle for the finish and was running a bit hot as she crossed the line. Next thing she knew she was at turn one with way too much speed so she grabbed a handful of throttle and took a lowside... she was ok... the bike, not so great. Our group took home 2 1st place finishes, 3 2nd place finishes and 1 3rd place.

That was my first trip to Barber and WOW what a ride. I missed my first practice, made 3 laps on my 2nd practice and did NOT want to go back out and race... LOL... that was a hard track to figure out. With some encouragement from Frankie I put on my big girl panties and went back out. I took 3rd in WSS!

The us129photo guys rocked it out! It is always great getting to watch Jared race.
