I'm gonna assume you meant something like "best" (even if it wasnt what you meant) although "wet" works since the heat had us all drenched in sweat. Totally worth it though.

We wouldn't have put up with you guys if Dustin wasn't such a big deal. 😂

Anyone ever do a trackday at Fontana Auto Club Speedway? I'm considering going there next month since it's fairly close to me and won't be too hot.

Ok, well to keep up the good times I'm already signed up for Streets of Willow September 16th. Would be good to see a few guys from here sign up.

Here are the only two photos that seemed different from other track days at buttonwillow. Dustin had some decent shots but I will share these shots from Phill Hill.

I started off really slow (and overly cautious) but as the sessions kept going, I started to pick up speed and not make as many mistakes. Took me like 5-6 sessions to get anywhere near some good lean angles and better body position (not pictured). I felt like with every session my skills increased exponentially.
Well... besides that last lap of my last session where I ended up in the dirt.

It was nice meeting, pitting and riding with everyone! Pretty cool group!

I just signed up for Streets of Willow on September 17. That's another track that is pretty close to you LA guys. See you there!

If we weren't signed up for Thunder Hill Monday Tuesday of the same week I would be down for Streets. I love that track.

I might try to make this. I'm officially hooked on track days and need to purchase a vehicle to get me to the track and back. Renting a truck from Enterprise is getting old really fast.

Cool, hope you can pull the trigger. I usually carpool with 1-2 other guys. It's a nice way to role to the track.
