I just got home so I haven't looked yet. There was so many people shooting video it was crazy .
I had 3 guys tell me they had a lot of video of me . They all had you tube accounts .
I saw on F/B today the pass where the star 126 with nos blew up chasing me . I will see if I can find a you tube of it . I have a couple to download myself .

It was really loose every round  . I changed rims , tires , and made a shock adjustment for this race, i was attempting to correct the wobble on the big end that I was already experancing. It was worse for this race than ever before . Ended up adjusting neck bearings , taking the front end strap off , and more shock adjustment . The MI race last week it was wobble free .

Also note at 6:10 in the video I beat the winner of the extreme class . He then beat me later in the semis .( only round I lost )  I didn't get to buy back and run him again and have another shot at the finals . several reason why , but I am ok with it .I went home with money . And I am not used to buy backs anyway .

Thanks again for posting the video Jim . It was great getting to see all those baggers hangin their front ends high of the start ! Looks like you would of been in the bigger money if your shifter didnt malfunction on that one pass .

yes thats the semi's . where i double shifted. and he beat me. he had bought back already, because I beat him in a previous round. I had not used my buy back yet.when he beat me in the semi.(rules were you could use 1 buyback anytime)  if I would have got my buy back and raced him again and won ,i would have went in the the finals against a broke bike like he did.

Street class was a bunch of mid 11 bikes . The bike that won was the same bike that won the extreme class with nitrous . He runs 10.8 on the bottle and mid 11's off the bottle . He got caught with his nitrous bottle in the saddle bag lining up for the street class . He should have been out of both classes right then . But that's how it goes . I was compensated ,and I had a blast . Next race should be a little more organized .

I wish I had made it, just wasn't in the cards. I'm still scratching my head over the springer in street class though.  I'm running an electric shifter, which I gather wouldn't be allowed in street, but that doesn't seem like much of an advantage compared to a 200 lb lighter bike.  I'm gonna try to make the race in NC in September.

Same crew from LA has the springer that has the nos bagger  . It was argued over quit a bit . I could have spoke up and probably should have . I just didn't want to be "that guy" and he wasn't in my class . It was put to everyone in the class to object  , it came down to a pissing match between two teams .
That springer took out another guy from IL in street class . He bought back , but lost again . That sucked because he pitted with me .

Yes the elec shift would put you in extreme street .
I am serously considering NC myself . Hope to see ya there.
Fast black is fast . We had the two fastest extreme street bikes there . Suppost to be some diff bikes in NC . I expect T-man will have his customers bike lined out by then also . ( it's gonna be fast) . He didn't make the street ride in Reynolds .

I'll pull the shifter and run the street class, think my bike would be competitive.  I finally scored a set of XR 1200 rims, getting them spaced up now, and going to try a different rear gear, will try T&T this week if it ever stops raining here.

i think you will be competitive also.
getting in high gear early really picks up the big end ET and MPH. even if ya have to over rev thru the traps.
