David Lang (Mentor)

CMRA Expert, Army Veteran
I starting riding sport bikes in 1992 as there were no real trackday opportunities other than racing. After starting with the CMRA in 1998 and doing tons of Trackday riding, I am excited with the opportunity to work with such a great organization like 3:16 Trackdays. I am an Army Veteran , CMRA expert and small business owner. See you at the track!

Eddie Thornton (Mentor)

MotoAmerica Racer, CMRA Expert, MSRH Lap Record Holder, “Texas Legend”
One of the nicest and most humble guys you will ever meet in the paddocks. I met Eddie 2-3 times in passing before I knew who he was. Humble and modest in person but fast and fierce on the track! Eddie has helped us at many events and we are thrilled to have him among us!

Eddie's Words
I started racing with the CMRA in 2010 and currently still hold a race license with the organization. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to race with MotoAmerica at Circuit of the America’s and at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It’s always a pleasure to be able to help and to pass on knowledge assisting with techniques that build riding skills and the confidence needed to achieve the desired goal(s).

Kasey Lewis (Mentor)

"Kasey probably has one" if you are at the races and in a bind, need something, that's usually what you hear. Kasey is a super helpful, encouraging, and knowledgeable expert racer within the community. He was always mentoring anyway ... so it seemed natural to bring him into the fold to help us develop the next generation of racers and mentors!

Dylan Deutschlander

Dylan Deutschlander (Mentor)

I started riding at age 13, my first bike was a Honda NSR50, I started racing TMGP and CMRA the following year at 14 on a Grom. I spent 2 years at Novice, riding an RS125, KTM390 and an R3 and then moved to expert. Throughout my CMRA and TMGP careers, I was class champion through multiple Novice and Expert classes. In 2017 I moved to MotoAmerica to participate in the KTM Cup. My best finish was 4th at Barber and finishing the season in 9th out of 32. I stayed with MotoA for one more year competing in the Liqui-Moly Junior Cup on a Graves R3, again my best finish was 4th at VIR. I finished the season 15th out of 42. I finished 33 out of 34 races I entered in MotoAmerica. 2019-2021 I took time off to graduate and find a career path and that has landed me at VonHertell/Road and Track and I’m ready to go racing!

Ignacio Pedregon (Owner)

3:16 Trackdays Owner, CMRA Racer #316, Harris Hill Raceway Instructor and Safety Embassador, TXSR Organizer
If you made it this far you probably know who I am by now. My wife and I put our faith in Jesus Christ and prayed before starting this organization. We pray for you all before each event. And we hope that this and all track days bring you joy and happiness. Thank You for being part of this journey with us. I started "trackdays" back in 2012 at Texas World Speedway in the RAIN! Why? I could have stayed in the paddocks like everyone but I wanted to learn to ride better period. I then attended every possible trackday I could, got a race license, and started to get faster. On January 17, 2016 I was in a practice accident that nearly killed me, I was unconscious in a hospital for 3 weeks and in a total of 5 weeks! At first I thought maybe I would never ride again, that lasted less than a day I think, I told myself I would just ride my Sport Tour bike and chill out on speed, that lasted about 3 days. I then asked "how bad is the bike?" before I could walk without a cane I was in a garage with my best friend taking the bike apart. I was terrified to get back on track but I knew it was what I loved to do and had a passion for. This also made me reflect and consider there has to be a smarter way to do this. I worked with several AMA, MotoAmerica, Expert Racers, Novice Racers, and Seasoned Coaches and we developed The America Superbike Camp "R.A.C.E.R" Methodology. It works and leads to more progress and less motorcycle repairs and orthopedic visits. It also leads to more progress because you can actually get faster mainly because you are crashing less and spending more time getting faster than recovering! After 5 long years of working my way back to a slow "race pace" I won the 2020 CMRA Formula 40 Novice Championship! Come and join me for a ride!
