Id like to know what happened to fellow G4S drivers ?
Good or bad we like to hear what happened.


On the Xray subject its unfortunate for the DQ but they still made a impressive showing so give them credit
Id say Serpent were lucky to get 1 720 at the top ,what happened to the others ??
Afterall the wheel is round and can stop anywhere ,so no excuses ,the race is run and results posted ,better luck next time

Mike Dumas got taken out before he could get in a lap in his main
He missed a qualifier which was crucial at the time since the track on thursday which was at it's best
more or less time was spent on getting the car hooked up & they were trying a lot of set ups. The car overall looks good & they feel confident that it will be a contender
Just remember this was the trinity team first outing with the car not there last.
Blackstock was really fast look @ his laptimes in the main & his drake motor is a stock motor out of the box bobby flack was running a plus 3 murnan modified

I think just about anyone who ran on Saturday will be in at least one of the photos, probably a lot more.

...on soapbox...
It's Jim Rice's race, and the Ft. Myers crew runs things the way they think is best. It's the same track for everyone, so if it's smooth or rough, it's equally rough on a factory guy as a newcomer. Jim ran things more or less the same as the way World Championships are run - for the most part, there isn't a re-sort. The only thing they do at the Worlds (and here) is to move drivers around where it's obvious someone is in the wrong heat, based on performance. I did ask Jim about whether or not there would be a re-sort, and he thought things were pretty good just the way they were, with a few minor changes he had made.
...off soapbox

Hey, if anyone wants to complain, why not yell at the weatherman, who sent us 30-degree temperatures!!!! :-)
No resort would be fair if they didn't stack the heats from the start. Let the race program shuffle the drivers and let the chips fall where they may. If you put all the fast guys together from the start they have an advantage. They will have a better chance at a clean run.
