i like to start the day by putting in a good 1st qualifying run. that way i can expriment with setup for the rest of the heats and atleast i will have something to fall back on.

a perfect day for me must include:
- a nice sunny day
- nothing goes wrong with the car
-have a nice close race with someone

Hanging out with some friends at the track is more than a good day especially if one of them goes on a beer run then it's a FANTASTIC DAY

A perfect day for me is not having any engine troubles or breaking any parts on my car and a good day is just being at the track getting high on nitro.
