I talked to Tweak late last night. He said he got 3 more packs in during the open practice and that the car was "drivable now" He said he thought he had a good solid top 5 car but that "X-Man" is on top of it all.

Tag- pulled his ride in fear of Breakage....LOL No really he said that since he knew he had guys that could easily put it in the show he was gonna dedicate his time to helping them with what ever they needed. But he was gonna do that AND RUN!!! So no "duck" comments was what he said. LOL

I bet it was hard for Tag to make that decision. X-man way to represent for our area, your Team and of course yourself. Good luck with the rest of the race weekend.

I talked to Tags about 10:30pm our time last night.

He had just gotten back from eating a large steak and then proceeded to gas out the hotel room making Tweak squeel like a little girl.

Tags said his car was still super hard to drive and that he was just gonna wheel it. He doesn't have time to worry about his car. He wants to make sure the team does well and make sure they have POWA.

Tags did the same thing for me at SnowBirds. My car would not run in stock at all. I don't know why. Tags insisted I try his car in practice. I was basically a half second a lap quicker with his car. Right then and there, he told me I am running his car in stock and that he is pulling his entry. He didn't have to do that, but he did. Tags is the man even if he likes to dress funny.

whew . X-man just pulled out of a bobble in his heat (26 sec. left) The bobble put him into third place, but he pulled it out to win his heat by .125 of a sec.!!!

Great job Craig!!!

alright, gotta go, Tagger is racing

edit: Tag didn't start in this one. I guess he is giving up racing to support the team....Tag's the man!

Brandon finished that round in 4th overall. Way to go Tweak! In the show, now it's time for revenge......
5:00.1 5:00.4 5:00.8 How is that for close racing?

Here's a little update for ya fellas...

For Round 2, Brandon came up with a 4th overall and X came up with a 6th overall.

They are both solidly into the show so far. They still need to go a little bit quicker to make sure they definitely make the show. Damn Qual points.

Anyway, both Brandon and X decided to hit stuff in their races. According to Tags, they both wrecked on their own. Heck, X actually had to make a U turn costing him about 2.3 seconds.

I told Brandon that they have to stop watching Tags drive and DON'T use Tags line. The wall is just not the way to go.

As for Aaron, he's cutting it close to making the show. He, too, needs 2 more good runs in top 6 to make sure he makes the show.

All in all, Express is doing great. Brandon assured me he's gonna TQ a round tomorrow. Tags and I already placed our bets.

Actually, the video is pretty poor, but it was better than working

Brandon really drove well in his heats, but schreff is right, to secure thier hold in the show they both need to be able to hit and keep 20 laps.

Express did well last night at Glenn Burnie. Robbie won. I was 2nd, and Mike Webb was third. Andy made the A last night running Epxress power as well.

Robbie was fast light and had the night vision on driving fast even in the poorly lit track. I had the speed but I judt couldn't get that close to the walls in the dark like that plus I just didn't want to risk breaking the car in the main last night.
