Half way through the season with only six races left, I have managed to climb up in the class points standings. I missed one race at Roebling Road but I hope to complete the rest of the season with no missed races.
So far, my points standings for each class are:
GTO 7th - This is a tough class with a lot of fast guys, 39 racers, so I'm pleased with where I am at the moment. With each race I seem to be placing in the top 10 with a 5th place finish at PBIR, but I'm hoping to at least get one podium finish by the end of the season. Maybe Jennings is where I can get that.
Unlimited GP 6th - There's 25 racers in this class and this is a 2 wave start race, sharing the race track with Expert Supersport Middleweight. I started racing this class after I decided to scratch Unlimited Superbike only because it was tough to do back to back races with Formula 40 and be competitive in both. I really like this class and hope to do well in the upcoming races. So far, I have one 3rd place finish at PBIR.
Formula 40 5th - This is where us old guys have a chance to race against each other in a smaller group. There's 23 racers in this class and this is a 2 wave start race as well, sharing the track with Expert Formula 40 Unlimited and Expert Formula 40 Middleweight. I really like this class because there's more expert racers out there that I can try to keep up with and learn a few things from. So far, I have one 3rd place finish at Jennings.
This has been a great experience for me and I hope to continue on to the next season. The rules are, if 400 points are collected, white plates are issued to that racer moving them up to Expert. I now sit at 317 points with 6 races to go.....
And I must say, the traveling back and forth to the tracks with LilRichard and Justin58 have been quite the laughter trip. It's a lot of fun listening to the shit talking.... lol
