New Sponsor: Sunstar Sprockets and Chains

The 2015 Racing Season is shaping up to be the best one yet.  I am very happy to announce that I am adding Sun Star Sprockets and Chains to my list of Sponsors for 2015.  While Sun Star is more well known for their off road sprockets and chains, I am looking forward to testing their road racing ability in the coming season.

Expect to read a review on the sprockets and the chains soon as I install them on my 2008 MartianCraft Yamaha R45.  I will follow that review up about mid-year once I have had a chance to put them through their paces.

New Sponsor: Engine Ice!

I am very pleased to announce the addition of Engine Ice to my list of sponsors for 2015.

Sponsors are extremely important to racers.  It is a great relationship that allows the sponsor to showcase their products and in turn the sponsors help the racer to racer more often, with better equipment and give him a greater opportunity to win.

Engine heat can be a vicious problem on the race track.  When we are at Thunderhill in July and the air temperature is well over 120F, engine heat can cause you to end your race prematurely.  It is vitally important that a race engine run more than just plain water.

Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant is biodegradable, phosphate free & non-toxic; it typically reduces operating race temperatures and effectively keeping boil over temperatures to 256°F or less and freeze-up protection to -26° F.

"Right out of the bottle" Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant is ready to provide you with dependable horsepower and is proven to reduce operating temperatures. They key to horsepower is not losing it! Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant is engineered to keep your operating temperatures at optimum performance to not lose power through excess heat.

AFM 2014 Round 6 Race Report

The 6th Round of AFM was held at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, CA. Sonoma Raceway is easily the most well known track that we race at. It was formerly known as Infineon for 10 years and Sears Point before that.

Sonoma is the most technical and demanding track on the AFM calendar. I have always enjoyed this track as horsepower doesn’t count for very much. There is no real “straight away” at Sonoma. A couple of places where you can grab a gear or two but nothing like the front straight at Thunderhill or Buttonwillow.
