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

Before I begin I need to thank a few people and sponsors for their efforts.

  • Pirelli - thanks to Tom Young and Kevin Graham for their continued support. They really came through for me this weekend and I owe them a debt of gratitude.
  • EBC Brakes - Garry Gallagher, what can I say, you're the best!
  • Brad Gua - Huge thanks to you for your amazing friendship and support.
  • Jim and Brayden Reger - It was amazing having you guys over for the weekend. A real treat to have some special people in my life there. Thank you. I hope you had fun!
  • Dan, Dale and the team - Can't really put into words how grateful I am for all that you do. Thank you!

As I sit in line for the ferry home, I'm thinking about all that transpired this weekend.... I woke up on Saturday morning with a sore throat, so I pounded down a bunch of Echinacea, vitamin C, and anything else I could find to hopefully kick it in the ass before it became an issue. It didn't work, but I was still good to race.

Lap times came along quite easily and the bike worked well. Have to admit I love Seattle, exiting turn four and cresting the hill before turn five, on a nice summer morning.

Day 1 - Race 1 600 Supersport
I got a good start and slotted into third going into turn two. The pace was good for the first few laps, nothing crazy. Eli wicked it up, we followed, and times dipped into the low 1:26's. - Eli eeked out a small lead and Mike Sullivan and I duked it out for third. Sully handed me my walking papers and I ended up in third across the line. I was frustrated as I was experiencing some challenges with the bike that were holding me back. Or, so I felt. I talked to Dan, Dale and Tom Young and we made a plan for the next day.

Day 2 - Race 2 - 600 Superbike
I got a really good start and pushed to second by the first lap. On lap three I took the lead with a somewhat close pass on Mike (sorry bud). I put my head down and pushed as hard as I knew how. Eli got me, then Mike. I tried Mike several times but he held me off to the line. We were closer, but man, I wanted to win….

Race 3 - LW Superbike
I got an okay start but managed to get out of turn two in first. I really pushed for the first lap and on the second lap in turn three I saw yellow flags waving. Crap - both of my main competitors had gone down (thankfully unhurt). I checked back and the carnage left me with a large gap to second. I put in some consistent laps and got the win.

Race 4 - MW GP Twins
I got my best start of the day and with a clean lap got a small gap on the field. The ZRSV was running strong and I just focused on putting the bike in the right places. I got into a comfortable rhythm and put in some consistent laps times that got me to the chequered flag first.

As for me, I'm exhausted. Glad to be home to rest up because in four days I leave for the next Portland round.

Stay tuned… we will be on full song then!
