Homestead Speedway CCS Motorcycle Racing May 7, 2017, Part 2

As promised, here is part 2 of CCS Motorcycle Racing at Homestead on May 7.  Most of these images are from the ‘afternoon’ races.   I only saw one small cloud in the sky all day, which means I went through a log of SPF 30 sunblock lotion.  Temperature was around 80 for the high of the day.

True bike nuts, like me, also enjoy ‘behind the scenes’ images and stories.   For racers, family, friends, and pit crew, “behind-the-scenes” is where races are won and lost.

In racing, nothing is un-important.  Without ever type of spare part on hand, a ‘simple’ failure of an exhaust bracket will elminate any hope of finishing the endurance race.
