Saturday June 4, 2016 We headed to Gruene HarleyDavidson
to race at the Hooligan dirt dash.
I ended up taking first in my heat.
In the main I wheelied the bike and
chopped the throttle giving me a horrible
start and from there I tried to work my
way up to the front but that's racing.

Friday June 3, 2016.
So day two we took some
demo bikes from HarleyDavidson
in downtown Austin and rode out
to Salt Lick for some good ol Texas BBQ.
After lunch we rode to Xgames
and were trap to a serve storm
that rolled through.
Xgames was canceled so we decided to
load up the race bikes on
the transporter because they
needed to be at Gruene HarleyDavidson
first thing Saturday morning.
We had no chose but to ride in the rain.
So with some trash bag ponchos we rode
back to town. We ended the night soaked
at a bar with drinks in hand.
We got a small window to run
an exhibition race on the
Xgames half mile on Thursday,
June 2. We went on after
the pros finished their practice.
Track was fun and fast.
We had to be run a tight
line inside because there
were holes exiting turn two
and entering turn three.
The speed merchant sporty did awesome.
I should have changed the gearing but it ran
just fine. I had plenty of
power exiting the corners.
I just wanted a little more
pull before entering the turns.
I was bouncing off the rev-limiter.
We ran four 5 lap heats. Wiggins
was first for all the races.
I bounced around from 4-6 but wasn't
too far behind. On one the heats
Brawny took 2nd. The shot at the bar
was for our teammate who was missing in action,
Taylor Dunfee and we left our mark with
a dollar bill at the Elephant
room located on 315 congress. Great times,
