Nolan Lamkin at Barber Motorsports Park

13461229_10153685136088870_369969949_oOverall this weekend was very successful. I was able to get two top ten finishes. On Friday I was able to qualify 5th which I was super happy about. Then on Saturday for Qualifying I went out but there were several red flags then I got stuck in traffic with little time left in qualifying so I was not able to improve on my time from Friday. If I could have put my best sectors together like I did on Friday I would have been able to qualify 5th again on Saturday.

For the race on Saturday I got a good start and was able to pass lots of people. I then was in a group that led from 4th to 11th. I am really happy how I finished in race 1. I just needed to be more force full and aggressive to make my way through that group but I still was very happy with the 8th place.
For the race on Sunday I didn’t get as good of start and was behind the 8 ball. I then was in a group that was 4 riders long. I was towards the back of the group for the entire race. On the last lap I knew I was faster in the back section so I got the best drive I could coming out of the museum corner and I then went around the outside of 2 riders on the long sweeping right hander. The rear end started chattering which allowed 1 of those riders to get back by. I then was able to get a good drive and I missed getting 1st in the group or 7th by 0.04 seconds.
