What a great event...I had a blast even though I couldn't qualify worth a damn lol
I think I put in the best run I ever had in my 19 turn D main though. I started in 5th and in the first corner I moved up to 4th. By the end of the 2nd lap I believe I was in 3rd and then by the next couple laps I was leading! I wasn’t leading by much though I had Team Associated Driver/ TC5's main designer Bob Stellflue on my arse the rest of the race! And when I say that I mean he was like no more than 3 feet from me for like 4 minutes. I was just holding my line and wheeling the snot out of the car trying to hold him off. He had a touch more power than me but I kept saying to myself "just hold your line and there’s no way he will get by." It was awesome hearing everyone "ouing" and "awwing" the whole run! I was told like everyone in the building was watching the race we had going on!!! I did that and just held my line for the rest of the race and was busting off fast and consistent laps while doing so! I was so impressed with myself. I never knew I could run like that before lol So the last minute of the race came and I was still like,” JUST HOLD YOUR LINE!!!" I did that for the rest of the race but on the last corner he touched my rear right wheel and spun me around and into the boards _bad_ He got booed LOL He was waiting a little bit but then the 3rd place driver came around so the guy who took me out took off too so I finished 3rd _bad_ I got shafted pretty good on that one but really that was the most fun I think I ever had in onroad racing _good_ I was talking with that Bob Stellflue after the run for a while and he kept on apologizing to me. I was like no worries I had a great time, even though I got robbed on that run LOL
After we got off the drivers stand we shuck hands and I had Keven Hebert come up to me and he told me I had an awesome race there and said he was really impressed! I couldn’t believe that! Then I had Bobby Flack, Craig Xavier and a few others do the same! It really made me feel good _good_ through out the rest of the day I had random people come up to me and congratulate me on the awesome run that I had. It was pretty sweet _shiner_ Then I go upstairs and I have Rob and James Reilly looking at me in shock saying "Where the hell did you learn to wheel a car like that!?!" LMFAO It was cool knowing we had the whole place watching our run! One of the greatest feeling you can have in rc. I wish Tag was able to see it though because it would have been the only good run he seen me put in all week . He was busy getting Cickies motor ready for his main though.
So in the end I ended up taking home a pair of plaques which was pretty cool. I ran a consistent race in stock as well but I just couldn’t get any speed out of my car. Oh well I still had a good time.
