I too had a great time. First official race weekend could not have gone better. The weather was cool but much better than forecasted. Thanks to Joe for all the help in getting to this point; I wouldn't be on-track without you. Thanks to Stan, Shaun, and Clint for the support and allowing me to share your paddock; had fun and hope we'll be on-track together next time. Thanks to Lee, Rob, and Matt for all the support, advice and sharing the track with a newbie. And thanks to all for the camaraderie of an excellent race weekend.
I encourage everyone to shake-off winter, dust-off your equipment and come out for the next race. See you on the track.
