Congrats...[/b]

LOL Well thanks Jeff. As for the big speech, you are going to have to check out MavTV. They televised the whole thing and I gave an interview for them afterwards. Also there is a youtube video of the main. If I knew how to put it on here I would. Here is the link if someone knows how to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNCL2KM2k0w

I think I am going to try and do the one in Michigan also. It is on March 5th...Right now I am 3rd in points only doing one race, so if I do another and do well in it, I should be top 5 at the end of the year.

It was a blast. My second time ever on ice, so I didnt do to bad. It is pretty much whoever gets the holeshot. I won both my heat races, but so did two others. So we had to flip coins for the starting gate, and naturaly me being the most unlucky person in the world, lost and had to start very outside. The concrete starting coming up about halfway through the race which made it extremely slick.

Here are a few pictures they took:

Thanks guys, that sucks that the lakes are already thawed. I wanted to make a trip up once this season and try out some lake ice racing. Maybe next year I guess.

The XIIR will be at the Palace in Auburn Hills on thursday March 5th. If its close you guys should come check it out. So far I am planning on running it. Hopefully things go as well as they did last time.

You definitly should then. You can order tickets online or at the door. I dont think a stadium that big will sell out. haha
I dont really care for bikes at all, but those speedway bikes are something out. Pretty much a mountain bike with a 500cc motor strapped on it. They are insane. I have no idea how they even stay up on one.

You have to buy your studs from them. They are like 1" gold kold kutters or something like that. Not anyone can race it though. Its kind of like an invitation only series. You would have to get ahold of the promotor if you are wanting to run one of the rounds.

March 5th where is it at, can you shout me the place or is it on there site. I found it but I thank you going to have to count me out. From here that is a 14 hour Drive for me and I don't thank I want to drive that far for a ice race when the racing season is going to start in a mouth. I may try to attend the Chicago race but I will have to see where I'm at when it comes closer.

Ya they dont like to give that out. That is how they make money is you buying their studs. All I know is they come out of California and if you buy 1000 studs, doesnt necessarily mean there is 1000 in the bag haha. I had a bolt and chain link in my bag along with only about 800 studs. I got mine the night before and it wasnt too bad. Takes a couple hours to do them.

What rounds are you racing?
