The Pro Lean

Sometimes when you’re shooting a race you cannot really appreciate what the top guys are doing. Your view is so small, so concentrated, that the bigger perspective is hard to grasp. Like right here: Tim Johnson absolutely railing a turn at the Rhode Island races this weekend. I know he was hitting everything just about perfect all weekend, but, damn, look at that lean. How much confidence and skill does it take to hit that every time? All I got out of my own racing was a last-row start and a 3rd lap flat (goodbye Dugast Typhoon). Still, the 6+ hours of driving were worth it, I think, as some new business may be the result.
