This season is dedicated to the memory of my friends, Mike Battle, Keith Pinkstaff and Duane Grand -gone, but never forgotten.

Happy Fathers Day!

The week leading up to this weekend was actually quite relaxing. As I was still feeling the effects of the cold I had acquired the weekend prior, I spent the week relaxing and didn't even train once, something I haven't neglected for over six months.

A tremendous thanks to Zlock Racing, Pirelli and all my other sponsors, friends and family for their efforts and continuing support. A special thanks to Tina and Brian, two of my dearest friends, for coming down to support me (it means a lot), as well as Jeff and Francie for the amazing hospitality (and phenomenal food).

With the inclement weather, and a few technical challenges, we only managed to get in four flying laps. Not much, but it was enough to get us on the right path.

Race 1 - 600 Supersport
I got a decent start and slotted in behind Sully going into turn three. It seemed like business as usual for the opening laps until we all saw raindrops on our visors going into turn one. From there it became an exercise of bravery vs. available traction. I managed to take the lead and hold it for the most of the race as the track started to dry out. On the last lap Chris Ancien and I battled for the lead through turns five and six and Alan Schmidt took a run at us in turn seven. When we crossed the line, less than a few tenths from each other, it was Chris, Alan, then me. A pretty eventful race.

Race 2 - 650 GP Twins
I got a decent start and managed to get into the lead going into turn one. From here I managed to put in some clean laps until the race was red flagged. Thankfully the rider wasn't seriously hurt, but OMMRA called an end to the race as we were more than half way.

Race 3 - Middle Weight Superbike
I got a good start from the second row and managed to squeeze my way into the lead going into turn one. I really put in a hard first lap as I was anticipating another epic battle with Cedric Smith. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be as Cedric had something go wrong with his bike and pulled off. With the efforts of the opening laps I had managed a small gap which I luckily held to the finish.

Race 4 - 600 Superbike.
I did well off the line, but Sully did one better and we went onto turn two in the usual formation. Alan joined the fun on that lap and from here it became a rather intense battle for the win. Between Al, Sully and I we swapped positions several times each lap. In the end I was somewhat dissatisfied with third as we had the package to win this race, but just didn't get it done.

From here I actually have a few weeks off to train, spend time with my family and friends, and go fly fishing.

Stay tuned. Our next race is July 11 and 12 in Spokane for round five of the WMRRA series!
