Bobby Davies

David Dahms (Mentor)

CMRA Expert
Again the most nicest people you meet at the track, the most humble, are often the most successful and fast. He’s loaded with trophies and at the CMRA Banquets you get to hear him give thanks up on stage. That to me .. speaks for itself but the feedback we get from riders he works with just adds to his accolades!

We are so excited to have JC on the team! Such an impressive young man who just graduated from UT Austin with a degree in Marketing! He has been racing his entire life and truly love this sport. He holds a PB of 2:17 at COTA …. on a 600cc bike!

Jon Thayer "Jet" (Mentor)

Team Lead TXSR Organizer Austin, CMRA Racer
Jet is one of my personal best friends and has done tremendous things for the community. In 2014 he started the “Second Sunday Easy Ride” in Austin Texas and helps new riders every month. I met him at Cycle Gear years ago and took him to his first track day. He later on became an instructor with RideSmart and also became a CMRA Racer. He did his first round on his R6 at Hallet in May and WON his class in F40 Novice. He is a class act on and off the track and I am proud and blessed he is on the team!

Suneeta is always at the track with her awesome husband Sean, they travel together, ride together, and now they are racing together. She has been a member of MSRH for years and is part of the family. Her great personality and positive attitude help make "new" trackday riders comfortable and relaxed so they can focus on the fun part of riding!

Tony Miller (Mentor)

Tony came to us wanting to help, nothing more. It doesn’t hurt that he can ride well, has no ego, and just wants to help people have fun on the track. When you take in this much enthusiasm, and willingness to share you get something great from it. Happy to have Tony with us.

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!
