Big thanks to Roger and the NCK team, we had another great day of racing at Buttonwillow.  Thankfully, the weather was really mild, and turnout for stock moto classes was pretty good.


Randy, we ran the “13” configuration, going clockwise (down the main straight from sunset to sunrise).  The track is very smooth going in this direction – there is only one small section that I would consider a bit rough, and we take that at a low speed.  I ran an 18/22 all day with my ’99, and would probably start with the same next time we go to BW.

If you can arrange the time, you should try to make Thunderhill West in October – that track is like a 1.8 mile sprint track.  Physically very demanding, lots of blind corners, a real challenge.
