This was one of the hottest races I have ever done! Temperatures were near 100 all day and it was super humid. The day started off with a terrible start, everyone was around the first turn before my bike fired. I got it going and started to make moves towards the front. I got up to 4th by the end of the first lap.
I continued to charge all day, trying to catch up to the leaders. On the second to last lap I caught the leader, Adam Bonneur, and made the pass by out braking in a field section. I put my head down and tried to just sprint to the finish. On the white flag lap I went too wide in one of the field sections, trying to carry speed through a fast corner and left the inside wide open, Adam made the pass on the last lap. We went at it for the next 10 miles, I tried everything to make the pass back, but he kept shutting the door. The last 2 miles of the track were super dusty and I knew that whoever was leading at that point would win. Once we got there he was just in front and I had to back it down.
I ended up 2nd and 19th overall! Another top 20 finish and having my fastest lap on the last one!
