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!
