I became self aware that riding 100mph to work every day of the week will get me arrested, dead, or both. After escaping a chase with Loudoun's worst, I went to RNR and had them race prep my bike (at the time a ZZR600). I said then and now that I will never ride a sportbike on the street again.

I googled "best road race school" and Penguin Roadrace school came up. I went and rented a Ducati and rode it for the weekend in Advanced course. Crashed a few times too! Then a few months later after my bike was race prepped, I drove back to Loudon NH for Penguin RRS and got my race license. I started racing immediately. I had no idea about track days and all that. With my two track weekends of experience I started racing in 2010 at Summit Point. In a hurricane. I had no idea wtf I was doing. All I cared about was not finishing last.

6 years later I am on a real race bike with a good built motor and race suspension. I've made a lot of friends and have learned a lot. Now I am coaching beginner riders and trying to contribute to the cause in MARRC. I love all the work and BS involved. It's something productive to do with my time. I have a lot of passion for the sport.

My recent wreck in DC on my dirtbike has reminded me that I ride like an asshole and I do not belong on the street.. 150mph on the track is safer than 50mph on the street. At least for me...
