Thanks Mike! Just one spot behind Vance, who happens to be a fierce competitor, and just three rounds from 6th place. Woo-hoo!  8)

I knew finishing in the top ten would be close (just six points ahead of #11). I thought Manny would finish ahead of me for sure. About time they got the results posted!

Good job Wilbur. My money was definitely on you ending up in the top ten this season. You didn't let me down. You showed that an old,  mildly prepped street bike could make rounds in a tough class where most bikes have extended arms, air shifters, shift lights and other bells and whistles to make them easier to ride and more consistent. Hopefully with the changes you will make in the off season, a top 5 finish is within reach next season. I see an event win in your future.

Awesome showing Wilbur, congratulations.
A few more 41s instead of 21s and you would have been right in the mix.
All you need now for 2019 is a longer swingarm and a new set of white leathers.  ;D ;D ;D
Best of luck for 2019 my friend.

Hope for the BEST in 2019 : Like the others said a simple 750 Honda [OLD SCHOOL] racing the best in MODERN motorcycles and you get the Number 10 plate a feat not done by many of the BEST in the 1320' game of motorcycle drag racing. Hey MAN CUP get this man a #10 side plate for 2019 as a true racer. WILBER we had a great time at Drag Way 42 in Ohio = if they only knew the gas cost to drive that big motorhome North to that race from Flordia ........ see you in the lanes in 2019.
