Thanks to John Lee and Sweep racing for thinking of the GT8 racers and having this 2nd annual event. Those who run GT8 & couldn’t come missed out on a Great Event that only lacked the occasional sarcasm from other racers who don’t think we deserve any respect.
Both expert & sportsman classes were a lot of fun to watch and Phil on the microphone just took the excitement to another level.
( I think you found your calling watch out Monday night Football)
My son was away in Virginia on Vacation so my good friend Aja Arcibald took over the driving duties on my XRAY GT8. Our day started out with a bunch of unusual gremlins like a clutch bell exploding
through the cross town and massive brake failures and a pipe failure after a racing incident
We missed 1 qualifier & started 3rd in the Expert 20 minute B main. Aja ran a flawless race with a car he never ran before and finished 2nd and bumped to the Expert A Main.
15 minutes later we started the 45 minute A main 10th and the fun began. Right away I knew we were down on speed because we lost our 15T pinion earlier in the day and were forced to go with a 16T but Aja had us up to 6th within a few laps. By the second fuel stop we lost 70% of brakes and around the 20 minute mark the fruit of an unfortunate racing incident a T-Bone bent the exhaust mount so badly that a hole was worn through the bottem of the pipe, but at the end of the day our XRAY GT8 was on the Expert A Main Podium with a 3rd place Trophy, Great Job
Those that have not tried the New ROK Sweep tires give them a try
they blow the competition away!!! Sweep Racing is always looking to improve their already great products and they did it again!!!
