Failulec from 10th on the grid! 100:1 longshot, but he can't fail with those Magnum P.I. sunglasses.

They seem to run very similar, likely are the same.

Does anyone know if the races will be broadcast on liverc?

Yeah, I'm pulling for all Photon drivers everywhere, all the time. So that would include you sir, whether you're going to Jackson or not.

I see some Sand Baggers in the 17.5 Class. here are some definitions incase you dont know what a sand bagger is.

1. sandbagger
A person who pads a handicap or acts as if he/she is at a lower skill level than he/she actually is so he/she can achieve better during competition that's handicapped or by skill level.

2. sandbagger
In paintball a person or team of a higher level plays as a lower level team to win. Such as an Amature team playing a novice event.

3. Sandbagger
In grappling competitions, a sandbagger is known as somebody who fights down his/her normal skill level in order to get easy wins.

The problem with sandbagging is it can backfire very easlily.

With that said, I am happy to loan my tires out so I can get 34 runs on them before Q1.

I hear run 35 is blistering!
