Trackside At Laguna Seca

As exciting as a track day is, especially when one is riding a new track like Sonoma Raceway, I knew our West Coast racing adventure had just begun. To have a successful weekend we needed to do two essential ingredients- preparation and relaxation.

The Fast Boys Finale

I had the privilege to attend the final MotoAmerica round at the famous Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca race track, a definite thrill for me.

As you might imagine here in the Midwest, the “cabin fever” of not being able to ride during the winter months weighs heavy and the wish for throttle therapy becomes very real, very fast.

Against the backdrop of the fabled Corkscrew section of the track, Ryan and Jake discussed the race season thus far, the challenges and thrills of this world-famous track, and Jake’s hopes for the remaining race rounds.
