The weather was beautiful all weekend. The track was a bit slower then usual on Saturday due to some previous week showers that washed the grove completely clean.
But that didn't stop me and my Team C GT8 from DOMINATING every qualifying round by a full lap!!!
I won all 3 rounds and got my first TQ in awhile.
Horrible start!! I get tagged twice before the first turn putting me in 8th. The car was DIALED, by lap 5 I'm back up to 3rd pushing it hard to make up time and catch the leader. By the first pit stop I'm up to 2nd. I was making some wicked passes on every part of the track, I passed 2nd and 3rd (Shawn & Pablo) as they were drag racing down the back straight going into the sweeper. It was Epic. Having my sights set on winning and Chad in 1st and ahead by almost a lap, I knew I had to keep pushing!! The car never let me down by lap 56 I had put a big gap between 3rd and 4th, then I over take Chad and was back up to 1st!!
It didn't last long
there was a big crash in the chicane that left debris(metal and plastic) in the lane. As I pass through I see shiny metal coming from under my car, I pushed through but something got tied up in my suspension and my right rear arm was locked up. The car developed a bad shake going into right hand turns, as if i had blowen a tire. With some time still left on the clock I tell my pit man to do a tire change while I bring it in for a pit and shake the car. Tire was good but car flames out during the stop lap 69 took over 2mins putting me in 4th. I get back out and car is back to normal putting down 20sec laps. I hold 4th till the end. Still a mystery what exactly happened, but that's RACING!!
On the up side I had a personal goal to get a 18sec lap and finally got one in the Main
