Nicky raced in a tough P123 field at Copperas Cove, with 2009 UK road champion and Rapha pro Kristian House ripping everyone's legs off. The last 10 miles were really tough by all accounts, with Heath Blackgrove of the new Elbowz team getting the win. Nick came in 15th, just behind the founder of the Elbowz team, former World Superbike champion Ben Spies. Jennifer Purcell of Compton Racing team has decided she needs to race with the men to get the respect she deserves as the fastest woman in Texas, and finished 45th in a race of over 90 elite men.
The 3-4 race saw Frank finishing 3rd in a field sprint, while Jeff finished top 10.
The cat 5 race had the governor, Preston Smith ride his first race with a top 15 placing, getting caught behind an early crash and chasing the front group all day. Buzz had a flat early on, spoiling a good day.
Another season starts on the roads, with our guys riding Park Place when not racing collegiately, Caryn will start her season with King Racing Group soon.
