How many welders and compressors are plugged into that?  At least you have some fire extinguishers.

 

4 tire warmers and 2 battery changes

What do you do after racing motorcycle all day?  You watch motorcycle racing projected on the side of the race trailer.

How did you do today?

3rd on the motorcycle and 4th on the sidecar. 

There was 3 different classes of motorcycles racing at the same time and I my class only 3 of finished the race. I crossed the line only 3 seconds behind 2nd place and I was 4 seconds faster per lap than last year. I'm happy with that. 

In the sidecar race we had a little issue with the motor that it was over heating during the race and that slowed us down a little bit. In the first lap we were in 2nd place. Then we dropped to 3rd and at the end we were in 4th. There were a few sidecar rigs behind us so we were not in last place and I was happy about that. I'm hoping I have the problem worked out so that we can run a little better on Sunday and finish on the podium.

You should have unplugged it from the warmer!  :P

Good luck today! It all looks like a great way to spend a weekend.

Nothing tops off a family weekend like a trip to the emergency room. 

The boy was having a fantastic race and was in 2nd place when he hit a slick pitch on the track where a motorcycle crashed earlier in the day.

He still in the emergency room getting stitches so I still don't know how bad. 

The bike is is in ruff shape

Young bones are amazing. I can still do a lot of the things I used to do but my bones can’t take it. I hate broken bones.

He's walking around no pain meds or anything. Just every thing is at a slower pace.

Congrats on the third place!

Is Wo46 superstitious? Is that why she sweeps everything?

Impressive injury! Yow. Make sure he takes it easy for a while.

She is probably an ex curler, being from the North Country and all!

When we were at the race track a guy  ask me about how I liked the Avon Tyres that we are using on the sidecar. A  little while  later a lady was taking pictures of the sidecar and asking questions.

My son informed me that we are on the Avon Instagram page.
