Mark is an accomplished racer who owns and operates 2-Fast which is a track day instruction group. He is a top notch instructor, a college graduate, and he has been a multiple time number 1 plate holder in the top class of WMRRA. I've been blessed to have multiple one-on-one instruction days with him and I recommend that experience to everyone.

See onboard footage with various angles and hear the recap of the day with Mark and Larry.
MEGA MAC Invitational 6:15 minutes
We invited some of our friends to a private track day so we could do photos and drone footage that can only be done in a closed environment. We had never done this before, so we weren't sure if we would do it again... so we went all out with two drones, four photographers, food and a lot of water. It was a scorching 104 degrees that day and the track temp taken in the pits was over 130 degrees!

Track Bike Prep 13:36 minutes
While the bike was at Cycle Country getting service and prep done, Mark Degross (the owner of a track organization called 2Fast) stopped in to talk about what to expect for prep at the track. The 2Fast website has a FAQ section (http://2-fast.org/faq) that covers most of the questions you will come up with, and whatever it doesn't cover is likely already covered in the other areas of their site. We will be spending a lot of time with Mark and his crew in future videos, so check back frequently.
