Well I did my first quad race at the local fair on Monday night. It was a flat track race. I pull up in the pits only to see these full blown race quads and rigs. Lol. I was super intimidated. I'm on a stock z400. So I took my straps and compressed my suspension all the way down and went out for practice. Keep in mind I'm still running knobby tires. Out there on the track o felt like I entered a NASCAR race with a go cart. They were passing me like I was sitting still. Well it's time for my heat race. Well all the "fast race guys" took off there slicks and put on knobbys (i entered the knobby class) the intimidation leve sky rocketed. Well. I went out there and raced. I got 4th in my heat.......out of 4 quads lol. But they didn't just leave me. I hung in there with them and almost passed 1. Never been so excited about loosing before. I got the racing bug now.
