Thanks for the congratulatory messages. It was quite the experience. I'd posted stuff earlier but my desktop has been down for the past few weeks and haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I've been busy with a little vacay in Hawaii and a trip to Japan

It has been a solid racing year indeed...couldn't win them all but I gave it the old college try

My brother and I have posted a bunch of stuff on Facebook but I understand that some don't use it. In any event, here is a copy/paste of one of my posts.


Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

In A1, 1st and 2nd were having an epic battle. I used a new battery (not enough cycles) and was way underpowered. I had no business being in that mix and just drove as hard as I could to keep in touch. On the third to last corner on the last lap, they had contact and someone rolled. The other driver waited and I snuck through.
Finishing order was 312.

For the next race, I needed to win again or come in second with the 2 car finishing first, amongst other scenarios

In A2, I kind of felt that 1st and 2nd had to be super aggressive with each other in order for them to have a chance at the overall win, so I played it safe and applied pressure when I could. Older batteries were way better and I could motor if I hit the sweeper right. Half way through the main, my radio slipped off the driver's stand and the car went nuts. Oops. It took a couple laps to get my radio repositioned and had to over drive a bit to catch up while 1st and 2nd really started going at it. When I got close enough to join the fray, my radio slipped and fell forward again. I ended up just holding it like normal people do for the rest of the race. At some point, the top two got into a tangle and I snuck past the second place car. For the last lap I over drove trying to catch first but there just wasn't enough time left. The moment after we crossed the line and checkered flag, I began looking for the car number of the A2 winner hoping to see a 2. The top three cars looked vaguely the same at speed with paint jobs mostly being white with orange and blue "noise" lol. When I found the car I could not believe it was number 2

Finishing order was 231.

Final results were:
3 car (me) 1-2
2 car 3-1
1 car 2-3

Not at all, I agree. All things considered, I believe I was very lucky on a number occasions during our mains
