The race weekend was fun! We went to a middle-school on Friday, my team autographed posters with some other teams, and we met a bunch of cool kids!! BITD and the City of Henderson had a street scene going on that afternoon. We hung out with everyone, got our quads ready, watched "Seven Mary Three" perform (awesome - my voice is shot from screaming like a groupie)! We woke up early Sat morning... race started at 6:30am. I went to put in my contact lenses and tore the left one. I had to race with my glasses. I had such a hard time. My eyeballs were bouncing up and down but my glasses weren't keeping up. It sucked. Anyhoo, our team did great - We got 4th out of 9 or 10 in the Expert Quad Class! It was so windy in the morning... brrrrrrrrrr! The course was VERY VERY technical.
I was honestly a little leery since this is where I crashed really bad in 2004. I didn't want to push my luck so I was being careful. Us District 37 racers did great, the others had issues. We are so used to racing in ROCKS! There were quite a few broke-down quads. Glad ours wasn't one of them! Great job to my mates Todd and Pete!!!
We had a fun, great year racing together for the first time as TPP RACING! Thanks again to Todd and Pete! First to Pete for providing the Suzuki that we raced on all year. And also thanks to both of them for their hours of prep work and long nights getting things organized. I really appreciate everything they've done and also the fact that they asked me to ride with them. This was a 1-year plan for all of us. We had a SUPER time. For 2006, we are all still racing but have different schedules. Good luck to Todd and Pete! I'll see them at most races, I'm sure!!!
I would also like to thank our pit crew, David and Marty, and also a few other gentlemen that helped us at the 1000 (Pete's co-workers). Thanks to my husband, Chris, who helped us with our pit strategies for every race (and also for his endless support)! Thanks to Pete and Todd's wives... Melissa & Sabrina! Thanks to all our quad family, D-37 family, BITD family, our own families!
