Myself and Pace both led parts of the race, was really close, top 4 cars ended the race within 10 secs of each other. I ended up 3rd, Chris Crews beat me to the line by .003 secs in a drag race out of the final corner. I didn't want to lift and was on the outside and was forced to hit pit road wide open after we bumped wheels coming to the loop. I jumped 3/4 the way down pit road and actually landed it . Pace ended up 4th or 5th. They are sorting out a "rules thing". There was a guy who's transponder wasn't counting every lap and they "say" he was on lead lap behind me, but nobody can prove it. If they let him have it Pace will have 5th.

Contrary to popular belief, I did NOT cut my thumb off. That's a good shot though Larry.

BTW... those were 8th scale tires in my pit at a touring car race. Look what ya started Brandon!

Run far, far away while you can, if not you'll be hooked . It's like having a second job to keep that thing race competitive.

You couldn't be more right. When it takes days of prep for a single race weekend... it's nuts. When Larry asked me on AIM this past Friday... "How long did it take you?" and my response was "8 hours", you know it's almost a 2nd job.

Tear down for this weekend commences today.

yup, 10 hrs in my car to get ready for badlands. BUT, that was after a hose washing, LOL. It's usually 3-4 for club racing maint. and about 5 for big races, under normal conditions. I might could cut that in half, but the 12 oz. curls while wrenching extend the time a little . Maybe something to consider.
