Well Rob and I just finished up the Action Hobbies Kingsville Summer Thunder (GLORC's series race). It was my first week back into racing from taking almost a 2 month break due to engine problems. The race was pretty big. People came from 12-14 hours away. I believe we had close to 130 entries Well my first qualifier I touched my fly wheel off a jump halfway through the quali so I flammed out. In the second qualifier I just wantted to just put in a nice safe run which I did and I was 15th overal. Next qualifier I went for it a bit more and put myself in 10th spot. This put me 2nd in the B. I was very pleased with this results considering I haven't raced in a long time and there are a lot of great drivers in the GLORCS series. I also managed to put in some fast lap times.

As Rob mentioned the majority of our mains got rained out I was working on my car really hard to get it ready so I was a bit disappointed. I spent over 3 hours rebuilding the 3 diffs, the shocks, cleaned all hinge pins and sway bars and replaced a couple of bushings. Since there were 2 bump ups I felt I had a strong chance of bumping up to the A considering I had to get marshalled a couple of times in my best qualifier Well sicne the results finished up how we qualified I bumped up into the A main since I was sitting 2nd in the B. LOL 10th place A main FINISH LOL Thats a very wishful way of looking at things LOL But hey thats how I'm getting my points for the series scored so that makes me happy. What makes me even happier is ALL the TTR drivers there (Dave Henry, Joe Parent and myself) were all in the top 10. Dave Henry being TQ and WIN, Joe Parent in 6th place and myself in 10th

Thanks to Rob for some fast pit stops this weekend

Aaron
