Track Day/Practice for MCRA HPT race weekend

B.J. entered into the July 31st Heartland Park Motorcycle track day.  This was to prepare for the upcoming MCRA race weekend on August 13th and 14th, 2011.  He entered into the Novice class during this track day event.  The motorcycle he was racing with was a Buell XB12R Firebolt race bike, provided by Alex Opperman of the James Gang Racing team.

Motorcycle racing on a turnHis goal was to become familiar with the new race bike and to gain experience at the HPT.  This was in preparation to Aug.13th and 14th MCRA race weekend.  He will be attempting to acquire a race license by completing the clinic that’s available on that weekend.

B.J. was the fastest in his novice class on the Buell racing bike.  He lapped the field on the 2.5 mile road course.  He handled the bike as if it was an old friend that he was used to.

It was a hot and steamy day for spectators in shorts, I can only imagine how the racers felt with full gear.  It was still an awesome day, and I look forward to attending more races in the future.
