Went and raced my first Arenacross today. It was in Greensboro NC and it was fun. The first heat I finished 6 and missed my LCQ. Will know next time a little more about the event than what we did this time. It was a real fun adventure to race inside for a change.

Raced today at Lake Sugar Tree Eastern Series. I signed up for only one race and was entered into 2 of them. I raced the 9-13 and finished 3rd overall and the 85cc beginner class and placed 1st in both motos. Took a wild ride over a huge step up and landed in the woods but was able to recover pretty well.
