Jim, your first run sounded fantastic.  Sounded like some pedaling on the second run.  I was just glad it didn't go around.  Not insinuating that it would or has a tendency to but the course was so bad and roadsters being roadster... well, you know.
Nathan, Tony said it required his attention but he never felt it was getting out of hand. To quote "it has been a lot worse". We were only spinning the tires 6 mph in the lights.

I knew you had spun but I wasn't going to rat on you.

I wasn't sure if you were Willie or not. Yeah I'd say spinning worked out for you. Unlike the guy in the modified roadster who went out the back door and then some

     Pretty close to a ten, I'd say.

     Looks a bit more dramatic than the "turn out" the announcer told the crewman when he asked for the time slip!
