I'd say the 200 is in the bag for her team. He is an extremely talented individual. So kind to his fans and other racers. A true hero. I witnessed him giving a spare head to a different team during a race at Mid Ohio.

He spent 2 hours signing autographs after the race. When I went through the line, he was cool as fook. Answered my dumb questions and encouraged me to take track school. (Even though I am 250 lbs)
Y'all know somebody of my size couldnt possibly compete. His point was to continue to learn and ride.
Good dude, wish him the best.

Going to the track day aint about competing though, there's nothing to win except knowledge. You gain a ton of experience and skill at a greatly accelerated rate, and have a stupid amount of fun! When you get the clean bill of health, you should definitely get out there and have a blast! Oh, and everybody is learning and not a professional, so the size would be a non-issue!

It's just so sad that the 200 doesn't matter any more. I'm old. It used to be the crown jewel. Europeans came over to race in it. NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!!

And for what it's worth, I'm a big Josh Hayes fan, and Melissa for that matter, and I will be watching the race.

Melissa is such a beautiful and incredibly cool woman. In the attached bottom left photo, she just finished participating in a 24 hour endurance race and still is beautiful. Josh is an awesome guy of course - it is great that those two are together.

I guess I have a dirty mind, but given the fact that both of them are hard core racers, I got a different visual after reading the checkered flag at the end of each session statement

Like most people, modeling for a camera is not really MP's thing. That makes me like her even more

Awesome I've always liked Josh and Melissa even more for obvious reasons what a couple they make.

Seen him at Laguna Seca absolutely dominate for years on end and always knew it was just a matter of time before the kids started to catch him and pass him.

Still a Class Act.

And yeah like fifty said, the 200 is a shadow of its former self.

I agree 100%. I went to the Kevin Schwantz school that PJ arranged before the first MotoGP at COTA in 2013. I had never been on a track before but I learned a lot and had a blast. At the time I probably weighed around 220 so I was no lightweight either. I highly encourage you to go. I'd really like to take the Yamaha Champions Riding School with Nick.
