SERIES: AMA/Prostar
CLASS: 600 Supersport
EVENT: Elmer Trett Nationals and Spring Nationals
QUALIFYING position: 1st
FINAL STANDING: Atlanta Winner, quarter final in Richmond
BEST PERFORMANCE: 9.75 139.23

FINALLY! This race weekend was a relief in more than one way. First, the rain finally held off enough for the AMA/Prostar season to complete an event. Second, I finally got back into the winners circle after a 2.5 season drought. Also, the 2003 season in 600 Supersport looks to be one of the best ever with the top 5 being close at both events to date.

Atlanta event recap,qualified 1st with a 9.93 @ 135.5 and won the event overcoming a monster holeshot by the competition.

Richmond event recap, qualified 1st with 9.75 @ 139.23 and went out in the quarter final due to an unusual drop in power after the 1/8th mile resulting in a 5mph reduction in speed vs prior pass.

Despite the disappointment of going out early in the Richmond event I consider this weekend a success. I was able to score number 1 qualifier in both events and have the low et for both events and am just one round out of a tie for first in points.
