Default Mirock at Rockingham

Anyone ever race or spectate one of these events? Looks like mostly metric bikes but I'm planning on running the street e/t class with my sporty.

http://www.mirockracing.com/

Looks like you don't need any pre-registration, costs 60 dollars to enter the class and pays 500 to win. They have practice on Friday then two separate races on Saturday and Sunday for that specific class.

If anyone could tell me if they run 1/8 or 1/4 that would be helpful, doesn't say on the website anywhere. Assuming 1/4 judging by the index classes they have. I know they run the .500 tree for this class too which I'm not used to at all but I'm gonna give it a shot.

So the Mirock at Rockingham event was awesome! Here is a picture of mine and Bretts bikes in the pits.

We get there Friday for practice and I was just unlocking the trailer and Brett pulls up and pitches his tent next to us, camped the whole weekend after riding 5 hours then rode home 5 hours Sunday! He is crazy!

As for the racing we both got knocked out in the first round both saturday and sunday in the Street E/T class but we had a great time!

My best time was an 11.73 @ 110, not sure what Bretts was but I know he was close to breaking into the 12's.

Anyway here are some pictures from our weekend, after we got knocked out early Saturday we had a pretty good time with the PBR!!!

I have to thank the XLF otherwise I would of never met Brett and had such a good time at Rockingham.
