Race 1 complete! Managed to get the win. It was tough race as the sun was out and weather was hot! Tires I think overheated a bit and made it tough to ride..slower than my qualifying time by nearly 2 seconds. No win is an easy win.
Roll on race 2 tomorrow. Will be streamed live at 12:20am EST at the links in my story!
