Yup, good run Mike and Robbie. How did the rest of the Mugen drivers do? Scott, how did you end up?

This was probably the worst race weekend I have had. I have nobody to blame but myself. I changed fuels starting this race and had an awful time getting tune and runtime. I ran out of fuel in my first 4 quals and made a pitstop on the last qual which isn't much better than running out of gas.
Qualified 24th out of about 65 sedans. Then to continue on with screwing myself I didn't tighten my motor mount screws. I was in the bump spot in the C main when the motor moved and stripped 2nd gear. One lap later I stripped 1st gear. By that time we looked and found only two screws holding the engine mount to the car. Good thing was the body still looks new and the Parma now has a body to compete with all the others out there.

That sucks, but that is good news about the body. I will have to get one and try it out if we ever start racing back here.
