GNCC Round #5 – Acerbis Loretta Lynn's

Acerbis Loretta Lynn’s – Hurricane Mills, TN - Coming off a rough race in South Carolina I was eager to get things under way at Loretta Lynn’s. This track can be very challenging but heading to the line I was confident in myself and my machine. I got a great jump off the line which put me in position to get the holeshot. But, I got tangled with another rider in the first corner allowing most of our class to go around. It was not the best way to start the day but I put it out of my mind and started charging towards the front of the pack.

At the end of lap one I was in eleventh place and feeling really well. On lap number 2 I had a run in with yet another rider in my class sending me to the back of the pack for the second time. At the end of the lap I was really fortunate to have worked my way back into the top 10! During lap three I pushed hard with hopes of catching the leaders.

I pushed hard the final remaining lap hoping to get sight of the leaders again and make a charge for a top three but when the checkered flew I placed fifth. All in all this was a day of battling to get to the front. My Yamaha worked great and I happy with my ability on the track. I wish the day could have ended a little better but that is cross country racing. I am going to head back to Florida to continue my training regimen and attend local events. With five rounds of GNCC racing under my belt I am second in the points standings and a mere 8 points out of the first place position.

As always, a huge thank you goes out to my great group of sponsors who stand behind me and have had a hand in this event.
