Ah. Good. Ritchie's back and fully engaged.

Adam: reach high, higher, higher...now lower your arms, roll your shoulders around, and crack your back. You, my friend, are well and truly broken in. Welcome to the club. Your membership pin is in the mail.

World GT last night: Gah! I don't get to win that often. And to take it to Wes and Brian on the same night with a TQ, sweet! And then, how many times did I dance the left side chicane just right in the main? 35, 36 times in a row? And to blow it, BLOW IT! with the tone already sounded--as in, finish the lap you're on--in the lead...ratzenfratzenfu@#$!&! GAH!

I'll have to wait, what, another 12 months for the same opportunity?

On the other hand, Stuart and Garrett did have a nice race. I think there will be some reinforcements coming soon in Stock 1/12th

It's also nice to hear that Stuart is only too perfectly willing to throw me under the bus about working on his own stuff. Apparently, his ability to sit down with Brian and describe in accurate detail what's going on with his car has nothing to do with the hours I've spent with him going over his stuff. That's great. Duly noted.

But, on a serious note, no, I won't let him sauce his tires or charge his batteries. On the first, he's still a little guy. It doesn't matter if I'm pumping out three tailed dwarf sperm that navigate with 16 clicks of right trim. My reproductive job is done. He still has a lot of growing to do. And batteries? No. Not yet. He's too little. As for wrenching, he gets to do it all the time. But, if the rest of the Stock 1/12th field is happy to share their hard-earned race night with an 8 year old and his pin-it-to-win-it jacked chassis, then let me know! It would make my night a lot easier not trying to put a decent car on the track.

Yeah, sorry about that. I need to get off of the stims. Sometimes my short fuse is lit before I realize it. Accept my public apology and let's move on. To set us back on track, here is something everyone can appreciate.

I over heard Kyle say ..... 14-16 hour days..... which is never fun, sounds consuming. Writing race reports take a good hour, which it doesn't sound like he has a spare of this week.

Todd! Paper or plastic? That race was in the bag! Expect it had a hole in it. Wah, wah , waaaah. I came around the corner, saw marshals scrambling and an empty track in front of me. I nearly stopped to see what happened. Where did they go? The race is not over. Besides that last corner , great job! You've got the Hangar tamed.

The nutshell version of Kyle's soon-to-be-released report is: Another Epic Wednesday!!!

We're cutting Kyle some slack, as in addition to the factor Brian mentioned, the 2031 IIC Stock Touring champion arrived in Kyle's family just three weeks ago. She's the cutest little pink blob of brand new baby girl you ever did see!

One of my most pleasant observations from Wednesday was racers helping racers. Mike Ruete and others spent the majority of the night wrenching on other drivers' cars, instead of their own car. Amazingly enough, Mike and the others might know what they're doing because at least one of the cars actually drove better after it was handed back! Thank you Mike and All for helping others out.
