Yeah I hit the throttle and the car when left right into the wall and flipped! What a novice! I rolled on the throttle for the mod main though! I had a false sence of security with the 4wd start!

You definitely were faster it seemed. Your car seemed to get more air over the jumps which definitely helps in stock. You caught up to me pretty quick and passed me through the front rhythm section to take the lead, but then you cased that double a little and allowed me to catch up enough to squirt inside of you at the end of the straight. The next lap or so was crazy. I felt like I was playing a video game in time trial mode where the "ghost" car is racing you. It was almost as if we were held together with a 3 ft string. I believe you passed me again going over the doubles and s-section, but over the ski jump I took a risk and skied it a little to take back the lead to the inside. Then through the step-up section I was sure you were going to take back the lead because my car wasn't able to clear the middle double at the end of the race, but I think you took it easy so as to not crash. That next corner I knew I had to go tight, so I went as tight as I could and you did the same. I think you were trying for the inside-to-outside line and I was going for the inside-to-inside to stay tight and avoid the rut in the center along the front rhythm section, and we got tangled. But, like a pro, you stopped and let me go. We had one more lap (maybe 2?) of close battling before finishing .1 sec apart. Thanks for the awesome, clean racing

As far as my results I sucked in truck and lead the whole C-main intell the last lap and got beat by .5sec Buggy what a story that was I qualified 7th in the A and me and Downtown battled out(with very clean driving from both I might add) 1st place checked out by like 5sec but me and Dave were never more than a car length apart the whole tim and then my speed control wires fell apart! Got ninth.........so mad but had a great time and got to meet some more people!

Don't know what it was but I was just not fast in 19t truck at all yesterday. First qually I did pretty crappy, crashed several times, didn't feel like I had a good control of the car. A CVD pin fell out during qual. 2, the set screw was still in it, just the pin came out... Qualified 7th in the B, finished 5th.

In Stock, I had a great 2nd qualifier until I got caught in traffic on my last lap, was on a 2nd qualifier pace. In the main I started 6th and I think I finished 6th, or 5th, not sure.

I think good laps for mod were about 34-35. My fastest lap in stock was a 35.8, first lap of my 2nd qualifier. Me and Jim Pierce had the same first lap, and were close throughout the whole qualifier. Not sure what my fastest 19t lap was, probably 35ish, though I didn't end up with too many good laps in 19t.
